A Bit of a Book Haul

I’ve bought more books that I’ve read this last month or so, but that’s okay. I’ve picked up lots of books that I’m really looking forward to reading, and I wanted to share them with you in this post.


First I picked up two books were Dev1at3 by Jay Kristoff (the sequel to Lifel1k3) and Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell (the sequel to Carry On). Both of these sequels are books I’ve been eagerly anticipating since I either a) read the first installments or b)learnt of their existence.

Then my copy of Ninth House arrived, which was one of my most anticipated read of the year. By the time this post goes live I’ll have hopefully finished reading it! I swapped to the audiobook as it was a bit more convenient for me when walking to/from work, so that I could read more, and I’ve loved it. At the time of writing this, I only have just over 2 hours left, so I’m aiming to finish it by Monday evening at the latest.

Then I decided to pick up a book that I’ve seen all over bookstagram and the blogging world: Kingdom of Souls by Rena Barron. This books sounds so interesting, and like nothing I’ve read before. I’m intrigued by the blurb, and I can’t wait to get to it soon (hopefully).

My next purchase was possibly my most anticipated read after Darkdawn this year. It was, of course, The Toll by Neal Shusterman, the third and final book in the Arc of the Scythe trilogy. Scythe and Thunderhead are possibly two of my favourite books ever, and I only read them both for the first time last year. I couldn’t put either of them down! These are books that I think I’ve recommended to about 5 or 6 different people, both online and in person, I enjoyed them so much. When I’m writing this post, I’m about 150 pages into The Toll and I reckon I’ll be finishing it by the end of the week. It’s all I’ve felt motivated to actually sit down and read at the moment!

My final purchases are books I bought over the weekend. The first is the second volume of Victoria Schwab’s graphic novel series on The Steel Prince. I devoured the first volume during the NEWTS Readathon and really enjoyed it, so I couldn’t wait to finally pick up the second. Two books on the ‘buy one get one half price’ table caught my eye when I was in Waterstones that day as well. The first is My Sister The Serial Killer, which I’ve seen online a few times recently and heard nothing but great things about it. I don’t know too much about the book itself, apart from what is written on the back, but it sounds really interesting. I think this will be a pretty quick read for me. The second, and final, book I picked up from the ‘BOGOHP’ table is The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley. I’d not heard anything about this book until I picked it up, and the blurb doesn’t give a whole lot away but I was intrigued. It was also their Thriller/Crime book of the month so hopefully I’ll enjoy it.


These are all of the books (I think) that I’ve bought over the last month of so. I’ve not been in as much of a reading mood as I was previously, but I’m slowly getting back to devouring books.

What books have you bought recently? Have you read any of these? Let me know!

  1. I almost bought The Ninth House yesterday but it was really overpriced. I rarely buy books but actually did yesterday: Norse Mythology and Brighton Rock from an independent bookstore 🙂
