Mini Book Haul (Signed, Cheap + ARCs)






Dreams of Gods and Monsters By Laini Taylor – I got this second hand from World of Books. To my surprise when it arrived I realised it’s a signed first edition!
Review for the series here.

The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan – I also got this from World of Books. I originally read this on kindle back when it was released, but I got the second book in hardback as it was signed. Since it was cheap I thought I’d get this too, ready for when the third book comes out in May!

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood –
I got this beautiful special edition from Amazon.
I had been meaning to read this book for ages but I never got around to buying it. I only bought it because I decided to include it in an essay I am writing and of course, I couldn’t buy the standard paperback, I had to have the special edition hardback. 😉
I have a review for this here.



*ARC Still Me by Jojo Moyes – I won this in a GoodReads giveaway.
It is the third book in the Me Before You series, I still haven’t read the second book… Oops. I will hopefully reread the first and get to the second and third soon!

*ARC Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi – I was sent this for review from the publisher thought I would still include it in my haul anyway! Review here.

The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski – I have heard so many good things about The Witcher books (and game) I had to pick up the first book when I saw it going cheap on Amazon. I plan to pick this up soon, look out for a review!

Leave me a comment letting me know of any books you have bought/received lately, I’d love to know!

Let’s be friends!
