Book-Haul

Hey Guys!
Hope you’re having a great weekend!

Let’s get on with the haul!

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!

Collective Book Haul! (Charity Shop, Secondhand + Discounted)

bookhaul

Hello, fellow book nerds!
Thought I’d do a bit of a different post, I’ve never done a haul before but love seeing them! I don’t tend to buy books in bulk, I used buy them as I read them, but since joining the online book community (Instagram, Twitter and Goodreads) I have been buying books like no other! Recently I decided I was going to limit how many books I was buying, as I don’t want a huge TBR pile taking up room on my shelves.

Hardbacks:
Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor – I got this second hand from MusicMagpie (Really good prices on secondhand books and free delivery!) – This was in decent condition, the dust jacket was good, inside there was some discolouration and splotches, but still readable.

The Force Awakens Novelisation – I also got this second hand from MusicMagpie – This was in really good condition, looks practically brand new!

The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry – I found this in a local charity shop for £1! In really good condition and a great bargain, can’t go wrong!

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard The Sword of Summer –  This is the only new book I’ve bought for myself recently. This US hardback I found online at The Works super cheap! I prefer the US editions of the Magnus Chase serious, so I was seriously excited when I saw this. What I didn’t realise was that US hardbacks are apparently smaller than UK ones! Hopefully, I will be able to get the other books in the US hardback too so they can match!

Paperbacks:
The Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson – Found this in a charity shop for 75p! I already own and have read this book, but I had previously bought it second-hand online and it was in large print, it didn’t match my other Sanderson books, it was too big! So now I have this regular sized edition and it fits next to all my other Sanderson books!

Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence – Got this online at World of Books, highly recommend this site for second-hand books! This book came and I don’t believe it had ever been read before, it was in perfect condition and the spine had no bends or cracks in it. They have good quality and cheap prices, delivery is free in the UK and I believe they ship internationally (although I don’t know if shipping is expensive).

I also post unboxing’s and mini book hauls on my Instagram story, so be sure to follow me on there!
