I told myself I wouldn’t be doing another book haul for a few months but I lied. However, this book haul isn’t as big as my previous ones – thankfully! I know that once I’m back at University, I won’t be getting any books to read for fun anymore, so maybe I’ll be able to stick to my book buying ban properly next month.
In total, I bought 7 new books this month and as always, I’m equally excited to read every single one!
I recently discovered I have a really bad habit of getting a new book every time I visit a new place, almost like a souvenir. I went to Liverpool for my sisters graduation and whilst we were visiting, we went on a day trip to Bradford. So I ended up getting Flame in the Mist, which I’ve heard is really good. I love retellings and this one is a Mulan retelling, which makes me even more excited to read it!
I also picked this book up whilst I was in Bradford mainly because the cover drew me towards it. I hadn’t heard much about it and I thought maybe it was a new release. I was wrong. It’s the second book in a series and I don’t have the first book, The Wrath and the Dawn. This always happens to me! I didn’t realise it was part of a series until a couple of days ago so now I’ll have to get The Wrath and the Dawn at some point in the future!
I got this book when I went clothes shopping with a friend which quickly turned into book shopping. There was a really good deal on books at the shop that we went to and it was really hard not to take advantage of the offer. We both ended up getting this book because it sounded amazing. After I read these lines on the blurb, I knew I had to get the book:
‘It’s been happening since Min was eight. Every two years, on her birthday, a strange man finds her and murders her in cold blood.’
This was one of the books that I picked up as part of the offer I mentioned above. I’d seen this book around for quite a while and I was never really that interested in reading it. The reviews I’ve read make the book sound amazing, so I can’t wait to read it at some point!
Whenever I would watch a video on YouTube, the trailer for this book would always play. After a while the trailer got on my nerves but it did make me want to get this book. When it was on the same offer as the two previous books I’ve mentioned, I couldn’t help but get it.
I’ve wanted to read this book for a really long time now and I finally got around to purchasing it last month! It’s really high up on my list of books to read next, so hopefully I’ll pick it up this month.
This book has been one of my most anticipated releases of the year because of how much I loved And I Darken. I managed to get the US edition of this book because it’s so beautiful compared with the UK one. Super excited to read this one!
Those are all of the books that I got last month! What are some of the books that you’ve recently bought or are looking forward to getting?
