I said in an earlier post that I’m not going to be a crazy book buyer this year and while this looks bad, I promise its not. I will admit though that I’m really looking forward to my birthday in April and I’m already planning what books I want to get. Until then here are my newest babies. They may have recently arrived but they aren’t 2018 purchases, so I still haven’t bought a book this year, I’ve kept to my game plan. That’s a pretty epic feat.
Aaahhhh Mark Lawrence. If you don’t follow my Insta page then you might have missed the fact I’m a little Mark Lawrence obsessed. So this is me finishing up getting all of the physical books. Until April of course when Grey Sister comes out. Yes its on my birthday list… Family if you are reading this, hint hint. For any Mark Lawrence newbies The Broken Empire trilogy is his first series, its brutal, grim and the characters exist in the morally grey area of life. There is no good guy for you to root for and I freaking love it.
I’ve been seeing this one around Insta for a long time and I’m very excited to be finally jumping on the bandwagon. I have a feeling I’m going to love it.
If you don’t follow Sam Sykes on twitter, pause here and go do it. He is a little odd in a good way and hilarious, so much so that I ordered this book without knowing much about it. Which leads me to my next purchase.
Myke Cole is also hilarious on twitter and the way him and Sam tweet at each other is gold. I actually thought Myke was a sci-fi author but it doesn’t seem that way. I think its called Military fantasy and considering he has served himself I think this could be my new favourite series.
Yes, I’m following all of that hard core fantasy with some paranormal romance. I like a bit of everything, I read around. If you are an urban fantasy or pnr fan, you need to get all of Ilona Andrews books in your life. That duo can do no wrong! Even the ones that I haven’t loved are bloody addictive. They write book crack.
This Savage Song has been on my radar for a long time, but I’m super wary of hyped books after the train wrecks that were “The Raven Boys” and “Cinder”. I’ll never trust the masses, when it comes to fantasy again!!! Anyways, I’ve finally decided I can give it a go. Also I have learnt from previous mistakes, I’m ordering one book at a time instead of the entire series.
Illuminae and Gemina are the only books I’ve read that have Amie Kaufman’s name on them. I freaking adored them (add them to your tbr if you haven’t read them yet), they are absolute standout books, which is why I’m giving this one a go. Also I love the fact its signed, that was a bonus that helped encourage me to put it in the cart.
This book guys!!! I’m buying into the hype for this. I’ve yet to see a bad word about it anywhere. I’m going to put the Goodreads synopsis in here for you –
On September 5, a little after midnight, Death-Cast calls Mateo Torrez and Rufus Emeterio to give them some bad news: They’re going to die today.
Mateo and Rufus are total strangers, but, for different reasons, they’re both looking to make a new friend on their End Day. The good news: There’s an app for that. It’s called the Last Friend, and through it, Rufus and Mateo are about to meet up for one last great adventure—to live a lifetime in a single day.
So that my friends, is my Christmas voucher book haul. There is no better feeling than doing a big book order, it makes me all warm and fuzzy. If you have read any of these, let me know what you think!!!!
