Book Hauls

BIRTHDAY BOOK HAUL

Welcome to my birthday book haul!!

I am so overwhelmingly lucky to have bookish friends that indulge me. So, THANK YOU. ❤ ❤

The Archived – by V E Schwab 
Thank you to my bookish buddy Sarah for gifting me this! It’s randomly heavy? But so… thin? I’m so interested in reading more Schwab, I hope I love this!! 

A Conjuring of Light (book 3) – by V E Schwab 
I was gifted two copies of this for my birthday. XD My friends know me well, HAHA! I definitely have to read this series now. That much is obvious. (Thank you Sarah and Amy!) ❤ 

Red Sister – by Mark Lawrence
Huge thanks to my parents for this; my family actually bought me a book. It’s a miracle. (Wanna know a secret: I asked for this 1 book. And they got it for me.) This sounds like a brilliant high fantasy assassin book and to say I’m excited is an UNDERSTATEMENT.

The Bands of Mourning (Mistborn, book 6) – by Brandon Sanderson
My boyfriend lost my signed copy of this in paperback. It was a sad time. But he is amazing and SURPRISED ME GREATLY with a SIGNED, PERSONALISED hardback of this book!!!! I don’t know how you did it, I love you. *faints*

Flame in the Mist – by Renee Ahdieh
I had Dymocks points so I treated myself. Happy Birthday to meeee. This has been marketed as a Mulan retelling but I think it’s more accurate to say it’s been inspired by Mulan and weaves folklore into its story? I’m quite excited, hoping to read this in July as part of a mythology readathon! More details to come. ReadAtMidnight will be hosting. ❤ 

Wolverine: Destiny (volume 4) – by Charles Soule (et. al.)
I didn’t realise this was volume 4 when I bought it, but since seeing the film Logan I’ve been eager to buy all the Wolverine comics I can so… definitely do not regret this on-sale buy.

Waer – by Meg Caddy
Thank you to my friend Sarah for this surprise! (And for the Percy Jackson / Heroes of Olympus shirts you got for me, OMG.) I’ve seen this floating around but never reached out to pick it up! 

Ship of Magic (Liveship Traders, book 1) – by Robin Hobb
Thank you Ayla!! I was gifted this as a belated birthday present and I am IN LOVE. This cover is amazing (link in title) and I can’t wait to eventually reread this series again! I read them in high school and borrowed from a friend, so I don’t own any of them! My Dad bought a few (thanks Dad hehe) but I want to add them to my own library in these editions. So it begins.
If you want to start with Robin Hobb’s books, I’d definitely recommend
Assassin’s Apprentice (book 1 of the Farseer trilogy). But you can just as easily start here with the Liveship series, its events come after Farseer and follow different characters! 

Night Broken (book 8) – Patricia Briggs
I got this on sale for $2 because it’s a continuation to a series I already own! I bought book 1 at Supanova so it’s already counted towards my Project 5 goal; this on sale book is bypassing my tally. I already know I won’t get to it for a while because at least four books come before it! Bargain, though. 

The Star-Touched Queen – Rokshani Chokshi
I had an arc of this, but I’m sending it off to a friend. So I purchased a finished copy to replace it! I haven’t read it yet and since it’s a replacement, I’m not counting it toward my Project 5 goal. 🙂 

White Sand (volume 1) – by Brandon Sanderson 
I purchased this hardback comic written by Sanderson because I couldn’t justify just randomly buying it. But I’m meeting him AND it was my birthday, so YES. My boyfriend and I are SO EXCITED to read this one!!! 

Capture

 I think that was it! I also purchased my first ever Fairyloot bookish subscription box! It’s the June box (theme: Elementalists) so I will definitely share its content when it comes! ❤

Overall I hauled 12 books, most of them either heavily discounted, or gifted! I think that’s pretty good considering I got 20+ last year!

What have you hauled recently? Thanks for reading!
