I haven’t done a book haul in ages because I haven’t been buying too many books. Mainly because I’ve been poor (as I’m a student and HR are terrible at doing their job) and I am actually really running out of place to put them. We are planning to renovate the library and do floor to ceiling bookshelves (it will be like 20-30 linear metres of shelves which will be amazing and I can’t wait!) but it hasn’t happened yet. But these are the guys I have picked up recently.
So the the first books I picked up are The Hallowed Ones and The Outside by Laura Bickle. I read the first book and then it took forever for The Outside to come in the mail, but it’s here now and so everything is okay. We can all stop panicking.
This series is about a young Amish girl who takes in an outsider during a vampire apocalypse. It has an awesome protagonist, and it’s super gory. I loved it. See my review of this one here: Book Review: The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle.
I’m going to read the sequel, The Outside, really really soon. So stay turned.
You can get these on The Book Depository (The Hallowed Ones and The Outside) and Amazon (The Hallowed Ones and The Outside), but sadly there is no ebook (I don’t understand why you make it so hard to buy your book).
Next, I got Ruined by Amy Tintera. I honestly bought this because the cover artist was done by the guy who did the ones for The Old Kingdom series, and I just love those. This is a YA high fantasy novel about a girl who doesn’t have magical powers, but doesn’t let that stop her from causing some serious trouble… I think. I haven’t read it yet, but I think this one may be next on my TBR.
Have you read this one? Did you like it?
Lastly, I FINALLY got the edition of Clariel that matches the rest of my The Old Kingdom series.
I love this series so much and I can’t wait to read this one. Although honestly, I haven’t finished Abhorsen… Something has possibly happened and I am not looking forward to finding out if that thing actually happened because I’ll be devastated. But I’m going to have to suck it up because I love this books so much.
So those are the books I’ve got recently. I have ordered some others and they haven’t arrived and it’s been a really really long time, and I think I’m going to have to chase those up…
