BOOK HAUL| March 2018

... My bank account is bled dry, physically shaking and begging me to buy anything but books. Our conversation went something like this:

ME: Just one more, I really want to read it.
BANK ACCOUNT: No.
ME: *takes out bank card*
ME: I mean I literally have the power here.
BANK ACCOUNT: NO.
ME: *pays for a book*
BANK ACCOUNT: YOU SAID BOOK BUYING BAN. WHERE IS THE BAN?!

Anyway, it wasn't just buying books that's the issue. I did request quite a few.

A book unhaul may have to be sooner than I had planned.

Planetfall (Planetfall #1)
Emma Newman

** Sent via the publisher for an honest and truthful review. **

UK Publisher: Gollancz
UK Release Date:

Thank you to the team at Gollancz, for all the books that I might mention in today's blog post!







State of Sorrow (Sorrow #1)
Melinda Salisbury

** Bought when I was left loose in Waterstones. **

Please restrain me.

This one is from a trip to Llandudno earlier on in the month. I read the sample that was given out at YALC and fell in love with the writing, I'm dying to read this one.






Empire of Silence (Sun Eater #1)
Christopher Ruocchio

** Sent via the publisher for an honest and truthful review. **

UK Publisher: Gollancz
UK Release Date: July 5th, 2018











A Veil of Spears (The Song of the Shattered Sands #3)
Bradley Beaulieu

UK Release Date: March 22nd, 2018






Sleeping Giants (Themis Files #1)
Sylvain Neuvel

** Bought from AbeBooks as a secondhand copy. **

This has been on my list of to be read since it came out. My flatmate picked up a copy and said she loved, whether she finished on reading it is another matter.
Instead of borrowing her copy, I nabbed my own.







The Tethered Mage (Swords and Fire #1)
Melissa Caruso

** Sent via the publisher for an honest and truthful review. **

UK Publisher: Orbit Books
UK Release Date: October 24th, 2017







The Defiant Heir (Swords and Fire #2)
Melissa Caruso

** Sent via the publisher for an honest and truthful review. **


UK Publisher: Orbit Books
UK Release Date: April 19th, 2018

Thank you, so much, to the team at Orbit for sending these out to me! These should be the next books up for review- I've had my eye on this one for a while.





The Song of Achilles
Madeline Miller

** Bought on a day out with friends. **

Okay, so I could have said no to my friend. But when she shoved the copy into my hands and demanded that I needed to read it, it was an almost impossible task.







Notes on Nationalism
George Orwell

** Bought on a day out with friends. **

This year, one of my goals, is to read more "classic" authors I really enjoy. I spotted that Penguin had published some of Orwell's essays for £1 and rushed a copy off the shelf at Foyles.









The Missing Girl
Shirley Jackson

** Bought on a day out with friends. **

Another one that I spotted and knew I wanted to read more of. For a £1, I can't really complain about my bank account. I just hope I love it so I can go on to pick up more of Jackson's stories.
