It’s time for another book haul. I have to say that I’ve bought so much more books since I started my blog than I did before! I’m guessing the mailman is thinking -what is up with all the packages for this girl? As ever, I’ll be showing you the physical copies I bought, the books I got from the library and the eBooks I received for review.
The titles will take you to their Goodreads pages.
Books I bought
Splintered (Splintered #1) by A.G. Howard
Heir of Novron (Riyria Revelations #5-6) by Michael J. Sullivan
Rise of Empire (Riyria Revelations #3-4) by Michael J. Sullivan
Promise of Blood (Powder Mage #1) by Brian McClellan
Allies & Assassins (Allies & Assassins #1) by Justin Somper
The Lies of Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastard #1) by Scott Lynch
Red Seas Under Red Skies (Gentleman Bastard #2) by Scott Lynch
The Republic of Thieves (Gentleman Bastard #3) by Scott Lynch
So I FINALLY bought Splintered. I really need to read this one soon, I’ve heard nothing but great things from pretty much all of you. And since I read Theft of Swords, the first bind-up of the Riyria Revelations, I knew I needed to buy the next two bind-ups soon. AND SO I DID. Allies & Assassins was on sale on the Bookdepository -it only cost me €4- so I had to buy that one too. And I bought physical copies of the Gentleman Bastard books! I really enjoyed The Lies of Locke Lamora, which I read last year. And since buying these, I’ve read Red Seas Under Red Skies too.
I bought all of these books on the Bookdepository -for which I have an affiliate link in the sidebar.
When I saw that my library had the first volume of Daredevil, I was so excited! I know Netflix has just released the first season of its adaptation but I kind of wanted to check out the graphic novel first. And then I saw this beautiful copy of Little Women, it even has deckled edges! So I needed to try that one too. I’ve never read Little Women but I really want to give it a try. Then there’s The Hobbit. The copy I got is actually very different than that picture. It’s a gorgeous book with thick paper and beautiful ILLUSTRATIONS. It’s like a children’s book of The Hobbit but with the same text… And lastly, I chose The Magicians. I’ve tried to read this before but couldn’t get into it, so I figured it may have been time to give it another go.
Books for review
I received the first four books via Netgalley and the last one through Edelweiss – thank you for that, publishers! I’m really excited to get to them -please let it be soon- and hopefully I’ll actually enjoy them too. I always find it the worst when I don’t like a book I received for review -am I the only one that has that?
That was my April book haul! Did you buy/receive any books this month?
