June Book Haul

Hey guys!
It's time for my June Book Haul! I'm gonna keep this as simple and fast as possible, I've been slacking on the blogging because I have so much stuff to do! 
I've had another month full of things to be grateful for, and with a lot of epic post! 


So first up are the books that I have been lucky enough to receive from publishers! 

Red's Untold Tale by Wendy Toliver
I am a HUGE Once Upon A Time fan so when I got emailed asking if I'd like to review this it was kind of a no brainer! Red is one of my favourite characters and I wish she was in the show more! 

I love me some dragons and this sounds super intriguing, it's been described as "Guardians of the Galaxy meets The Hobbit"...two of my favourite movies! 

Imprudence by Gail Carriger
The sequel in a spin off series from Carrigers Parasol Protectorate, and I'm so excited to see what happens next! I'm definitely going to make time to re-read the previous book because I LOVE these books! 

Duskfall by Christopher Husberg
I'm being spoiled with fantasy and this one sounds like it's going to be one of the good ones, I'm excited to get started on it! 

All The Feels by Danika Stone
Okay so at the time of writing this post, I've just started this and I had to force myself to stop reading it because it's completely hilarious and I would have stayed up until the early hours reading it in one go! 

Songs About A Girl by Chris Russell
I've heard a lot about this book and I'm intrigued to see what all the hype is about! Plus I'm a sucker for boyband fiction shhhhh! This also came with a link to a playlist to match the book...how awesome!? 

I was hooked on this by the title, not going to lie! It screams unique and steampunk at very loud volumes and the synopsis sounds brilliant! 

Vigil by Angela Slatter
The synopsis hauled me in on this one because it sounds so original, keep an eye on the blog because I'm gonna be doing the blog tour for this one! 

This was a surprise in the post, and I love Star Wars books and I saw everyone raving about the first book! This is obviously the sequel to the first book, and I think I'm gonna have to pick up the first one now! 

King Slayer by Virginia Boecker
One of my most anticipated sequels of the year, I completely loved Witch Hunter when I read it last year and I've been so excited to see what's going to happen next! 

The Shadow Hour by Melissa Grey
Another of my most anticipated sequels, the first book kind of made my month when I read it last year, and pulled me in to this fantastic world that helped me to block some other stuff out, and I've been so excited to get back there and see how my ship is doing! 

Paper and Fire by Rachel Caine
Aaaaannnd a third for the 'Most Anticipated Sequel' category, although I only read the first book recently, Caine is kind of an auto-buy author for me! I just loved the first book, once it got going! 


I got a couple of really cool books this month, as well as some manga which I stared at on the shelf for ages and ultimately forgot to add to this....oops? I'm sure you can guess which manga it is anyway! 

These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker & Kelly Zekas
Not going to lie, the cover drew me in, and then I read the synopsis and it was like...NEED. So I finally picked it up! 

Thief of Lies by Brenda Drake
I actually already read this because I reviewed it on NetGalley, but I wanted a finished copy because I loved it so much and I managed to get a bargain! 

Ruined by Amy Tintera
Another bargain! I couldn't resist this one because everyone's been raving about it and it was in Fairy Loot's box and I couldn't resist after reading the synopsis! 

The Near Witch by V E Schwab
This book has been missing from my Schwab collection, along with the sequel to The Archived! This book is really tricky to get hold of, you can only get it if you buy it used, but I just NEED all of the authors books so whatever! 

Soulless by Gail Carriger
I love Carriger's books and so of course I had to get the super fancy, limited edition of the first book in the Soulless series! If you think the cover is gorgeous...you should see the endpapers! 

Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman
I've been after this for a while, ever since it was making the rounds last year at all the book con's and I finally picked it up because I'd had a crappy day and was like "screw it" basically! 


Aaaannd finally we have my haul from the charity book shop trip that I was tweeting about the other day! I don't know why people have a problem with charity shops, I mean...cheap books and the money goes to charity?! Aside from the snatching incident which I'm still not over because 50TH ANNIVERSARY LORD OF THE RINGS SNATCHED FROM UNDER MY FINGERS. But yeah. 

The Bloody Red Baron by Kim Newman
I'm slowly collecting all the Anno Dracula books and this is one of the ones I needed it and it honestly looks like it has never been read! Bargaaaain!

The Axeman's Jazz by Ray Celestin
This intrigued me...history...murder...New Orleans...what's not to love?

The Court of The Air by Stephen Hunt
Not going to lie, I first looked at this book because of the cover and I'd been debating it for ages and ages so when I saw it looking all brand new I thought...why not!? 

The sequel to the book above....obviously I needed to get the sequel because ya know....once I've read the first book I need to read the second! 

Retromancer by Robert Rankin
This just sounded interesting and had a pretty cover. I'm simple/shallow like that. 

The Prisoner of Heaven by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Another author who's books I'm collecting! Another one checked off the list! 

Lady Audley's Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon
I collect all the Penguin English Library's and I was actually surprised to see this in the shop! 

Because I'm thick and not as literary as others, I had no idea the author had written other books, and this edition just so happened to match by Cather in the Rye edition. 

Nanny Oggs Cookbook by Terry Pratchett 
Once again, I collect all of the authors books and I know it's not an ACTUAL book per se but still! 

Aaaannnd there you have my book haul! It's missing a few things that just turned up the other day, but you can see them on Twitter!

  1. Wow that is a awesome book haul! I have just finished Soulless and am just back from the library with books 2 and 3, really enjoying this series so far and am loving the look of that limited edition!

    These Vicious Masks, Thief of Lies and Legacy of Kings are all on my to-buy list. I bought Ruined in June as well, it was a really good book hope you enjoy it too.
