So, I’ve seen many blog posts floating around about people’s book hauls. I’m always super curious about what other people are buying and reading so I’ve decided to share my own. I’ve gone a little crazy this month so I’ve got a lot to share!
My Physical books
Below are the books that I mostly purchased this much, with one exception that I borrowed from the library.
The Wicked King by Holly Black. I’ve been a huge Holly Black fan since high school and I continue to really enjoy her work. This is the sequel to The Cruel Prince and wow. Strong female characters and court intrigue. I love it!
Evermore by Sara Holland. So, I purchased this book not realizing that it was a sequel. Oops, but the plot just sounds so intriguing. I’ve read mixed reviews though so we’ll see how it turns out. Maybe I’ll read the first book first.
Girls Write Now by a whole lots of ladies. As someone who works in education I’m forever looking for way to empower young girls and women. This book is an anthology written by young women about the personal experiences. Very excited about this!
The Kingdom of Copper by S. A. Chakraborty. This is the sequel to The City of Brass. I loved the first book and I was very excited to read the second one. I’ve heard some rumors about the content though and while it sounds just as brilliant as the first it also seems to end on a sad note which makes me a bit hesitant to read it.
Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman. Dragons? Count me in!
Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan. I’ve only read the first couple pages so far, but I’m already in love with it.
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. Read this book! It’s wonderfully done. It’s a long read, but well worth your time.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. I’ve been meaning to read this books since it’s come out. I finally have in my hands.
The complete Broken Earth Trilogy by N.K. Jemisin. This book series has won so many awards that I can’t wait to see what it’s all about.
Fury by Will O’Shire. I requested this book, because of the cover and it looked interesting. It was short fic. It had potential, but I wasn’t very impressed.
Prince of Air and Darkness by M.A. Grant. An lgbt novel that has fantasy elements. It’s a nice entertainment read, but I would have liked more world building.
No Man of Woman Born by Ana Mardoll. I requested this book because of the title and the description. It’s a series of short stories. The author was very heartfelt.
Wild Country by Anne Bishop. I was so excited to see this coming out. I love this series.
