Book Haul| May 2016


Not as many books as I have had in previous months but, I did say that I were not to buy anymore just because I really don't have the space for them-- I really wish I felt okay with reading ebooks, truly.

Anyway there is one exciting piece of news that has me jumping off the figurative walls; that can be held off til the end.

First the books I bought right at the beginning of May:

Naomi Novik

Find on Goodreads

Yes, yes and yes. When I went into Waterstones that day I wasn't sure what book I had intended on buying. Then I say this laying in all it's glory on the many fantasy tables that were lain out.

I grabbed it and ran.

Passenger (Passenger #1)
Alexandra Bracken

This is a book I know better as one of the many duo tours that the marvelous Susan Dennard was on at the beginning of 2016. I read the synopsis and instantly wanted in.

Haven't read Bracken's The Darkest Minds series but, if I love this as much as I hope I do then they'll be next on my T(o)B(e)B(ought) list- mark my words.

After this little spender I decided to save my money-- that ended up on my prepayment for my accommodation next year at university. Theeeeeeeeen I got more than I was expected for my next college bursary (I got money for next half-term!) Which meant I went out again to Waterstones to treat myself with more books.

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files 0_1)
Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff

I've been craving some sort of Sci-fi novel for a little while and thought that this looked interesting in the format of the whole novel.

Through transcripts and emails it feels like a hackers journal-- something I am very excited to find out what this is really about.

An Ember in the Ashes (An Ember in the Ashes #1)
Sabaa Tahir

A book that I have heard nothing but good things about. In fact this book was even on the shelves at the writing retreat at Arvon at the beginning of the year.

I will definitely have to try and catch up seeing as there will be a sequel release at the end of this year?

Okay! Now the exciting bit I promised earlier. I plucked up the courage to finally email some publishers about some of my most anticpated reads on the Summer/Autumn 2016. The wonderful people at HaperVoyagerUK (one of my favourite fantasy publishers that we have in the UK) agreed to send me over an ARC of Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. 

I have featured this novel recently on the blog (check out my Waiting on Wednesday post: HERE) the synopsis for this book has me drawling at the mouth-- so expect a review coming up here very shortly. 

This book will be devoured. 

OMFG!!!! My excitement levels are through the roof!!
