It has been such a long time since I’ve done a book haul, but I’m super pumped about the books that I picked up recently – so I figured I would do a little mini book haul. Thanks to finding some great deals, which finally allowed my credit card to allow ME to buy some books. XD I think it’s mentally preparing itself for all the books that are coming out in 2018, and it informed me I needed some chill. These few snuck in at least.
The Rest of the Grisha Trio that I Never Got Around To
Yeahhhhhh, I read the first book of the Grisha trilogy, but I wasn’t that much of a fan. I think I put the expectations of Six of Crows on it, and it just…it’s not Six of Crows. My friend just finished binge reading it a few months back, and I happened across the cool new edition of the first book and got it…so I just need to continue the rest of the story and get it together and finish it. But first I have to reread the first one, because I literally have forgotten giant parts including a very important main character??? So, um, I think a reread of the first book and binge read the rest of the series so I can say I’m officially read all Bardugo??
The Book That I Bought For the Pretty Cover Underneath
Spindle by E. K. Johnston
Yeahhhhhhhhhhh, that happened as well. E. K. Johnston has the coolest covers underneath her actual covers, this book was at a bargain store, and well, Mandy snatched it up because Mandy needs more covers in her book life. And it is a Sleeping Beauty retelling, I believe, so, um, of course I need it even moreeeeeee.
The Book I’m Giving a Chance Because I Was Sold By Time Travelers
The Walled City by Ryan Graudin
I just finished Invictus by Ryan Graudin, and it was quite good. I had a few slight issues with it, but overall, it was a super fun read. I saw this book at the same bargain shop, and I figured I would give it a try. Has anyone actually read this one, because it seems to be the one Ryan Graudin book I never see anything about??
The Epicness from Sourcebooks Fire
This was a surprise bit of mail yesterday, and I am kind of crying??? I have seen some really good reviews for Furyborn, and I heard that it is an amazing fantasy book and sort of fairytaleish?? WHICH SOUNDS AMAZING. I am so hyped for it. Thank you, thank you, thank you to Sourcebooks Fire for sending this over to me, because I think I need to quickly go binge read it in a corner somewhere. And they sent me a bonus book, Before I Let Go. I’ve actually never heard of this one? I’ve seen the cover a few times on Netgalley, but I’m trying to avoid binge requesting ones I don’t know too much about. I started it yesterday, too, and it’s a bit odd so far. But we shall see! I’m still dying, y’all. *forever screaming*
