I haven’t done a book haul in ages, and that is not to say I haven’t been buying books. The day I stop buying books, you gotta know that something is terribly wrong. If I had to haul all the books I’ve bought since my last book haul we’d be here forever… So I decide to stick to the book I bought in December and January.
I work really close to two bookstores and often find myself in Exclusive Books or Bargain Book in my lunch hour. No matter how broke I am, I always find an excuse to buy a book…
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo – This is the second and final book in the Six of Crow duology. I’ve heard that it is phenomenal. I’m am pretty excited to revisit this world and all my favourite anti-heroes. Also, I am fully invested in my ships…
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir – I’ve been wanting to read this since it was released in 2015 but it was really difficult to find in Cape Town. When I found a paperback I just had to take. I had this little internal struggle because I was already set on getting Uprooted. I stood in the store debating whether it would be worth it to start a new series when I have so many unread series on my TBR list already. But in the end, An Ember in the Ashes won and I am so glad. This book was epic. You can read my full review here.
The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss – I had an Exclusive Book voucher… I couldn’t resist. Apparently this series is epic. A while ago I found a copy of the first novel at a second-hand book store and we all know I prefer to have all the books in a series before I actually start reading it…
Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes – I just started reading Falling Kingdoms and I am loving the world and the mythology. This is the fourth book and I was lucky enough to find it on sale at the Bargain Books Warehouse when I was Christmas shopping.
Storm Glass, Seas Glass and Spy Glass (Chronicles of Ixia) by Maria V. Snyder – All three novels for R100 at Bargain Book. Can you really blame me?
Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy – I really love Bargain Books… This is a novel I’ve been eyeing but it was always to pricey. And then I found it in the bargain bin.
The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury – This was a cover buy. But after reading the synopsis I am pretty amped to read it. The blurb reads “I am the perfect weapon. I kill with a single touch.
Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray – The sequel to The Diviners. I haven’t read much Urban Fantasy lately, I thought this series might be a good place to start again.
