Blogmas Day 18: Book Haul

I don’t know how I’ve managed it, but I’ve managed to reach day 18 of Blogmas, who knew?! Anyway, I decided to do a quick book haul past as it’s been ages since I did one.

20181218_000934.jpgWhiteout by Gabriel Dylan:

The lovely Charlie at Stripes sent this after I signed up for the blog tour, which I’m looking forward to. I dived in straight away and can confirm it’s brilliant, I’m so glad Vampires are finally making a comeback!! My review will go up soon, definitely add it to your TBR, especially if you’ve enjoyed previous Red Eye books!

I picked up Mythos last year to get signed and still haven’t read it, that didn’t stop me picking this one up too! I managed to get this one signed at this year’s Waterstones Christmas evening, especially with such a gorgeous cover. I can’t wait to read both over Christmas, I haven’t heard a bad thing about them!

I picked this up to get signed by Neal at the Waterstones Christmas Customer Evening earlier in the month. I adored Scythe and this one sounds right up my street. I loved the sampler I got at YALC so I’m sure I’ll enjoy the whole thing. Look at that cover too!


IMG_gmv30m.jpgQueenie by Candice Carty-Williams:

I was lucky enough to snag an early proof copy at a recent blogger event, I first heard about it at an Orion blogger event and been desperate to read it ever since. There was a choice of four colours, I chose the snazzy blue one! This isn’t out until April so I might have to hold off a little while and read earlier publications first.


IMG_-ca3cg7.jpgPaper Avalanche by Lisa Williamson:

I was sent a copy from David Fickling Books to review as part of the blog tour that recently happened, I loved it so much. I can’t recommend it enough, every book Lisa writes is both unique and utterly brilliant. I’ll definitely be buying a finished copy asap!


20181218_001514.jpgGrave Mercy, Dark Triumph and Mortal Heart by Robin Lafevers:

I was sent a set of these gorgeous reissues by Andersen Press to review, they had me at assassinsand I jumped at the opportunity. I’m looking forward to marathon-ing the trilogy, keep an eye out for my reviews!


IMG_eloovu.jpgQueen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare:

It’s no secret that I adore Cassie’s books so much, how could I not pick this up straight away?! Especially as the Waterstones exclusive has red sprayed edges, I’m a sucker for sprayed edges. I’m saving it and re-read the first two before starting this one, I may need some tissues too.


IMG_-f6nlc5.jpgAsh Princess by Laura Sebastian:

I keep hearing about this one, I know absolutely nothing about it other than everyone loves it, I picked a copy up awhile back, hopefully I can whizz through it soon before the second one comes out. I love the fancy cover with the burning effect too! I’m so excited about it, I really hope I enjoy it!


IMG_20181218_001212.jpgFierce Fragile Hearts by Sara Barnard:

I was sent a copy from the lovely people at My Kinda Book, it’s one of my most anticipated 2019 reads. I was so excited when it arrived, I dropped everything I was reading to start it. Honestly, it’s amazing! It’s everything I wanted and needed in a sequel.


IMG_-g3bch0.jpgDepartment 19 by Will Hill:

This was a random charity shop find while Christmas shopping, I adored After The Fire so I had to go in and pick this up as soon as I saw it in the window! I don’t know much about this series, I think there’s possibly vampires in it. One thing I do know is that it will be epic, I can’t wait to start this series.


IMG_-xrwkwg.jpgThe Good Doctor by Juno Dawson:

Its been years since I bought, or even read a Doctor Who book. I still need to catch up with the new series, I couldn’t turn down one about the first female Doctor and written by the brilliant Juno Dawson! I’ll have to read it once I’ve watched the new series.


Have you read any of these, or got any new books recently? Let me know in the comments!
