Where did all these books come from? || Book Haul

Book Haul

Yes, the title to this one is VERY appropriate. I think I have mentioned before that I don’t usually buy many books (mostly because of the buying ban that I was on). But this time around I managed to get A TON of books in ONE MONTH. I honestly had no idea that I bought this many in these past couple of weeks.

Basically I had some birthday money left and what else would I spent it on than books? Plus my mom also bought me two books on a whim. (Thank you mom!) ❤

So after this I’m going on a book buying ban! Well, sort of. I have to read 7 books before I buy a new one. (I find that this method works for me best and that I’m able to keep it up.) That’s just because I want to lower my TBR quiet drastically and I want to save some money as well. My TBR is currently at around 60 books – just if you wanted to know! XD

Anyway, I have rambled enough! Onto the books I bought!

Book HaulFirst of all we have two books by Sarah J. Maas. So far I have read Throne of Glass and The Assassin’s Blade by her. (Just wanted to mention that, as I’m not sure I have written about either book on my blog.)

I have been seeing these two books literary everywhere for a while now.

A good friend of mine recently read both and really enjoyed them, so she convinced me to FINALLY get them as well. They sound like something that I would enjoy and I’m very much looking forward to reading them!

Book HaulThese are the two books that my mom got me as gifts!

Same as with the two previous books, I have been hearing great things about them lately and I decided to get them! (Obviously.)

I’m most likely going to be reading Truthwitch next, I’ll be starting it tomorrow! (Most likely that is.) 🙂 I’m just in the mood to read about female friendship and I have heard that this book is for that!

Book HaulI got the newest Victoria Schwab (or V. E. Schwab) book!

She is one of my favourite authors, so of course I HAD to get her new book!  I have loved everything that I have read so far by her!

I also got, mostly on the recommendation of Kat @Life And Other Disasters:

She really enjoyed the book and her review convinced me to get the book. Plus I really do like the sound of it and I don’t think I have read anything like it before.

Book HaulI got two “adult” books as well this month!

I’m going to be honest – Our Endless Numbered Days was 70% a cover buy and 30% because of the story. This cover is absolutely gorgeous and I just NEEDED it in my life! Plus the story does sound interesting as well.

Of course I had to get the next book in the Cormoran Strike series. I really enjoyed the previous two and I do love me a mystery book from time to time. (Plus it’s J. K. Rowling and I want to read everything that she has ever written!)

So these were all the books that I bought in the last month!

Have you read some of these books? Which ones did you enjoy the most? Or do you want to read some of them as well? Do let me know! 🙂

Thank you for reading. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Birthday | Book Haul

Book Haul

So this is the first ever book haul that I’m posting on this blog! It was also my birthday on the 3rd of May. Seeing as it was my birthday and I got books, it gave me the perfect opportunity to post my first ever book haul! 🙂

I, most likely, won’t be posting monthly book hauls because I don’t buy many books in one month. So I’ll be posting them once I have some books to show! Who knows when that’s going to happen, as I have had this blog for months and now I’m posting a book haul. XD We shall see!

Book HaulI have mentioned quiet a few times on my blog that I absolutely adore The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien.

But I have read them in German (and reread them in Serbian and German) and never in English. I have wanted to do that ever since I read them for the first time! (Which was at least seven years ago.)

And now I finally got all of them in English, with beautiful covers in a box set. I’m super exited about these books! 😀

As we are already talking writing about classics lets talk about the only other classic I got! (I actually requested it, as I need to read it for University – I’m doing a course on English Literature this semester.)

Book HaulThe book is Hear of Darkness by Joseph Conrad.

I actually have no idea what this book is about and I’m not sure I’ll be looking it up before reading it. (I mean it’s only about 140 pages long and I want to explore the story without knowing much about it.)

I adore the Penguin English Library editions. They are freaking beautiful and this is the third one that I own. (The other two are Jane Eyre and Great Expectations.) I do plan to buy more books in this edition, as I want to collect as many as possible.

Book HaulI also got a graphic novel – one that I have wanted for ages! (As I have heard only amazing things about it.) It’s obviously Nimona by Noelle Stevenson.

I have already started reading it, though I’m only around 30 pages in (from around 270). I am seriously enjoying it so far! It’s very good and Nimona is freaking amazing! I love her as a character. The art is also really cute.

If it’s already this good and I’m enjoying it this much when I only read 30 pages I can’t wait to read more. This is going to be such an amazing read!

The next two books I got as gifts are:

Book HaulI have read The Archived by Victoria Schwab quiet a while ago. It was also the first book I read by her and it was also the one that made me fall in love with her writing. For some reason I never got the sequel, until now that is! I’m really exited to be reading it soon, though I should reread The Archived as well.

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet is a book I have been hearing a lot about lately, and only positive things. I also want to read more science fiction, so I’m super glad to have gotten this book! (I don’t know anything about it beside that it’s science fiction, just wanted to point that out.)

Book HaulAnd the last two books I got (that are quiet yellow) are:

Patrick Ness is one of my favourite authors and I have loved everything I read by him so far (which is 4 books). And I do want everything that he has ever written. Guess the next one I’m going to be reading is More Than This – it’s going to be great.

Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore is a book for book lovers. Or that’s at least what I heard and what made me want to read it in the first place! I’m very exited about it.

Well, that was very chatty. I didn’t expect to write as much as I did, but oh well! XD Have you read any of these books? Do you want to read any of them?

Thank you for reading! I hope you have an amazing day!
