A weekly post where I can brag about my new books? Yes please. Granted I definitely won’t have something to post every week, I’ll just do it as required. I will be including everything from my purchases, to NetGalley, gifts and books from authors.
For more information head over to Tynga’s reviews.
I just looked it up and the last time I did one of these posts was on March 1st. So to make this look less outrageous I’m splitting it up into two. One for my birthday haul and then another for the rest of the books I’ve accumulated along the way.
Haul part 1
Red Rising by Pierce Brown
Golden Sun by Pierce Brown
Morning Star by Pierce Brown
I read Red Rising when it first came out and it blew me away. I was so enamoured with the characters and loved the twists and turns, but for some reason I never continued or got my own copies of them. I’ve looked at the series so many times while I’ve been in bookstores, but for some reason never picked them up. Well I decided I wanted the series for my birthday and went to two different bookstores as neither had all three. I know own them and I love them and it will probably take me another year to read them all.
Wanderers by Chuck Wendig
I have had my eye on this book since it first came out. It seems pretty loved by those I follow on social media and I couldn’t go past it when I saw it in store. I’ve ditched all my current reads for it and by the time this goes up I should have it finished. So far I think it’s a masterpiece.
The Book of Koli by M.R. Carey
The moment I finished The Girl with all the Gifts, M.R. Carey moved onto my auto buy author list. His ability to write characters that you fall in love with and cheer for is phenomenal. He is a force and I highly recommend reading his entire backlist if you haven’t yet.
The Gutter Prayer by Gareth Hanrahan
I actually thought this was a self-published book until I saw it instore. I had been meaning to grab the ebook, but just hadn’t gotten to it yet. (Note, it turns out I did have the ebook already and I guess this shows how bad I am at keeping track of my books). Good thing about this one is that when I finish it, book two is already in store so I can get it easily.
A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine
I’ve seen this around on Twitter and it sounds pretty kickass, so I had to get it as well. Plus the cover is gorgeous and I’m a sucker for a great cover.
And that was my birthday haul. 100% spoilt.
Part two will be up next week.
