Book Haul

Book Haul | The Festive Edition


I haven’t done a book haul in a long time on the blog, so I thought I would share some of the books I received in December for review.

From Bloomsbury:

Bloomsbury sent a lovely box of bookish goodies just in time for Christmas and it contained some amazing books!


A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas – EEK! I am a huge fan of Sarah J. Maas’s books so I was over the moon when I found this in the package. I shall be starting it as soon as possible because I can’t resist!

Apple and Rain by Sarah Crossan – I loved The Weight of Water by the same author and I’ve been looking forward to reading this book since its release in the summer. This is such a gorgeous hardback edition too!

The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Chris Riddell – I’ve already read this and I enjoyed it a lot. My review will be coming later in the month!

From Chapter 5 Books:

The lovely people at Chapter 5 Books sent me two amazing tote bags full of beautifully wrapped books! I got very excited when opening them!


Immortal Beloved by Cate Tiernan – I haven’t heard of this one before, so I’m looking forward to finding out what it’s about!

The 100 by Kass Morgan – I see people talking on Twitter all the time about the TV series, so I can’t wait to read this. It sounds really good!

Angelfall by Susan Ee – I love this book! It’s one of the best apocalyptic/angel books I’ve read and I know lots of other people have loved it too.

Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout – Can you believe I haven’t read a single JLA book yet?! What have I been doing all this time?!

My Heart & Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga – This is a 2015 release that I was very pleased to get my hands on. I’m looking forward to reading it a lot!

The Catalyst by Helena Coggan – This is another 2015 release and I hadn’t heard anything about it at all, but it sounds amazing! Not something I’d usually read, but I’ll definitely be giving it a good go!

What books have you acquired recently?

    Oh those are some lovely books. I’m loving this new layout of your blog. I’ve been so behind on reading blogs these past few months that I’m sorry to say I don’t know if it’s new or not but it does look amazing. I love that you’re getting into your photography as well.

    I’m so jealous of your Neil Gaiman! I really want to read that one.

    I also got The 100 and its sequel for Christmas and am really looking forward to them. Wanted to make sure I read them before watching the TV show!

    Wasn’t The Sleeper and The Spindle just beautifully illustrated and told?!

    I was lucky enough to find some fab books under the tree this year including Lobsters, Circus of the Unseen (MG), Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks.

    Your books look so great!!! Ahh!!! I heard SO MUCH HYPE for A Court of Thorns and Roses so when you read that, I hope you love i as much as everyone else seems to! I really want to read Angelfall because that got a lot of hype in its time too.

    I got The Queen of Bright and Shiny Things and The Truth About Us 🙂
