May Book Haul

It's time for another hardcore book haul! 
I was given some book money this month and while my brain said "save it" my heart was like LOL eff that. So there we go. 


As usual, first up are the books I was lucky enough to receive from publishers, as well as a late birthday present that's completely awesome! I spend a lot of time feeling ridiculously grateful, not going to lie! 

Soldier by Julie Kagawa
The third book in a brilliant series full of dragons and action! It's been one of my long awaited releases for the year!

The synopsis for this intrigued me, contemporary fantasy with magic and magicians and a war all in Manhattan! I love all things original and a little bit different, and this sounds like a load of fun on top of that. 

The Veil by Chloe Neill
I am a huge Chloe Neill fan, and I've been so excited for this new series! A post war New Orleans with a prison at its centre for the paranormal/supernatural creatures. 

This Savage Song by V.E Schwab
One of my most anticipated reads of the year and a start to a brand new series, or rather duology, by one of my favourite authors! Schwab always rights original books, with plenty of twists and brilliant writing to boot! 

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake 
I've got a lot of fantasy books on my shelves, I love fantasy more and more, the more of it I read. There's always originality to them, and magic and adventure and this one has plenty of it! Three queens, three different magical powers, and one crown. Oh and not everything is as it seems. 

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas
BOOM. Perhaps THE most anticipated book of the year for me, and having read it? The BEST book I have read this year. I can't even! I have like three editions as well! 

Cruel Crown by Victoria Aveyard
This is one of my birthday presents from Rebecca! She knows me SO well and I've been so eager to get hold of this novella collection that goes with Red Queen! 

The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury
The second part of my birthday present from Rebecca and she's found me a completely awesome sounding fantasy, that I can't wait to get started on! 

Lois Lane: Double Down by Gwenda Bond
The sequel to Lois Lane Fallout, and I'm excited to see what's next for Lois! I completely loved how the author portrayed Lois in the first book, and what she's doing with the character! 

The Inquisition by Taran Matharu 
Another of my most anticipated reads of the year and the sequel to the Novice! These books are bursting at the seems with originality, and magic and fun, and they leave me wanting more! 

The first book in a spin off from Percy Jackson and all about Apollo who's been cast out, turned mortal and chucked in to Camp Half Blood until he sorts himself out! 

The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye 
Another brilliant fantasy set in the Ottoman Empire, there's going to be magic, romance and a whole lot of drama, I think! I'm loving the sound of this book and what's in store, PLUS I'm on the blog tour for this book, and my date is the 27th, so keep an eye out! I'll have an article to go with the review! 

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
Fantasy! I love fantasy! I keep saying it but I really do, I love being able to get lost in all these different worlds, and this one sounds like an intriguing one. We have our main character, the daughter of a traitor and she's training to become an assassin....I got sent a quiz with this proof to find out what House I would be in and man has it intrigued me! 

Tales From The Kingdoms by Sarah Pinborough
A gorgeous book full of the fairy tales we know and love...but all twisty and dark! These truly blew me away and I loved seeing the spins the author put on them! 

Alice by Christina Henry 
Alice in Wonderland fans are going to love this! The author takes the classic tales Alice in Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass, and she puts a dark fantasy twist on them, creating a horrifying , disturbing and deeply compelling page turner. That's how I was sold it! Sounds awesome right? 

New Pompeii by Daniel Godfrey
This one sold me with the words "Jurassic Park and Gladiator collide" I'm not going to lie. It sounds like it's going to be a stunning debut, set in the near future and with a replica of Pompeii full of Romans...it sounds brilliant! 


Aaannndd here's the books I bought this month! So basically, with the money I earned and the money I was given as a gift combined...I had a lot and like I said, I really should have probably saved some but I have no self control and here we are. I figure most of you saw my book mail photo on twitter the other day so I didn't need to include EVERYTHING in the photo! Like every single volume of manga! 

The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
God bless Waterstones and their stamp cards! I needed these because of the completely stunning spines...obviously! 

Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine
Gorgeous hardcover....favourite author....end of story! It's also quite a bookish book! 

Half A War by Joe Abercrombie
The final book in a trilogy that I am loving, the hardcover is completely gorgeous! The endpapers are stunning!

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas
Told you I had more than one edition of this! I needed the hardcover of this to match my hardcover of ACOTAR, obviously! 

I've been eying this up for ages, and everyone raves about it so I thought I'd finally go for it, God bless used book stores! 

Another used book store find, and another graphic novel that's been raved about to me again, and again! 

My third used book store find, and a Wonder Woman comic I've been after for a while! 

Still frantically trying to catch up...there's only like 39 volumes left to get? I think? Or maybe it's 40 because I think there's one coming out soon? 

Seraph of The End Volumes 2, 3, 4, 7, and 8
I can proudly say I'm all caught up on this one now! Well...actually owning the books wise, I need to actually read them! 

This is legit the only manga I am caught up on, both in terms of owning it and in terms of reading it! I'm seeing the downside of being caught up though, having to wait for the next volumes!

The Seven Deadly Sins Volumes 7-14 
Another manga I'm all caught up on owning-wise! I still need to read them! I keep saying I'll read a couple tonight like every day and my time management is so poor right now between these and my other books and the little projects I'm attempting to do! 

What did you guys buy or receive this month?

  1. You have some great books here! I also have This Savage Song and Three Dark Crows and I'm so excited to read them. I'm DYYYYYYING for a UK arc of Nevernight because apparently I have a thing for birds.

    Thanks for sharing! I hope you enjoy all of these.
