Blogmas Day 3: Book Haul

Hello, Book Dragons!

I thought it was time for another book haul, I’ve bought and received some brilliant books recently and thought I’d share some of them with you. The titles link to each book’s Goodreads page where you can find out more.

Happy reading!

20191106_152721.jpgCold Storage by David Koepp:

This was a free review copy from the lovely people at HQ, I’m beyond excited to start this one! Cold Storage is David Koepp’s debut novel, you may know him from his screenwriting credits, from Jurassic Park and Secret Window to Mission Impossible and War of the Worlds. I have a feeling it’s going to be brilliant!

20191202_153039.jpgThe Christmasaurus and the Winter Witch by Tom Fletcher:

A blogger pal kindly gave me their proof they didn’t want and I can’t tell you how excited I was to open it! I’ve read it already and can’t get enough of it, it’s absolutely brilliant! I bought a finished copy at Tom’s event and the cover is gorgeous! My review will probably go up during Blogmas, I can’t wait to share it with all of you!

IMG_20191203_134941_879.jpgSorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson:

I’ve heard nothing but good things about this one, it sounds amazing and right up my street! I do have an E-ARC but how could I resist such a gorgeous cover? I prefer physical books, I’m so excited to start reading it!

IMG_20191203_135115_642.jpgEliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia:

I’ve heard nothing but good things about Eliza so when I saw it on a table in Waterstones I immediately picked it up. So many have said the mental health representation is good, something I always look into before buying books with these topics.

IMG_20191203_140220_244.jpgThe Book of Dust: The Secret Commonwealth by Philip Pullman:

I can’t get over how gorgeous this edition is! I adore His Dark Materials and was beyond excited when my sister pre ordered the snazzy slipcase edition as an early Christmas present. Now I just need to patiently wait for my hold on the La Belle Sauvage to come through so I can read them back to back

IMG_20191203_155412_282.jpgThe Places I’ve Cried in Public by Holly Bourne:

I’ve adored every Holly Bourne book I’ve read so leaving Waterstones without a copy wasn’t an option! I love the sound of this one and can’t wait to start reading it, I just need to catch up on review books first.

IMG_20191203_135856_581.jpgHavenfall by Sarah Holland:

I squealed from happiness when I opened bookmaI’m to find a proof of Havenfall from Bloomsbury inside, I adore Sara’s books and beyond excited to start reading it. I have a feeling it’s going to be epic!

IMG_20191203_135357_136.jpgDeeplight by Frances Hardinge:

Since reading and loving A Skinful of Shadows, Frances Hardinge has become an auto buy author for me. It should come as no surprise that come publication day I “fell into Waterstones” and a copy “fell into” my hands. The Waterstones exclusive has fancy orange sprayed edges, anyone who knows me will know I’m a Niffer when it comes to sprayed edges.

IMG_20191203_142054_061.jpgThe Toll by Neal Schusterman:

This one should come as no surprise, I love the Arc of a Scythe books and been desperate to get my hands on The Toll. I’ve heard brilliant things about it so far. Might have to save it for Christmas so I can re-read Scythe and Thunderhead first.

IMG_20191203_140102_395.jpgNinth House by Leigh Bardugo:

Ninth House is Leigh Bardugo’s debut adult novel and it sounds incredible, I picked up a Waterstones exclusive edition at the London tour stop and I’m so excited to start it,  I don’t have a list of trigger warnings to hand, please check them out before reading.

IMG_20191203_140757_822.jpgHis Dark Materials: Northern Lights (TV tie in) by Philip Pullman:

I firmly believe you can never have too many copies of a book as incredible as this one. I’m loving the TV adaptation so far and couldn’t resist adding this edition to my collection. If you haven’t read them, what are you waiting for? They’re some of my all-time favourites and can’t recommend them enough!

IMG_20191030_182332_529.jpgA Throne of Swans by Katharine and Elizabeth Corr:

I couldn’t believe my luck when this gorgeous box of goodies arrived from the lovely Hot Key Books team, A Throne of Swans is one of my most anticipated reads and I’m beyond excited to start reading it! I kinda want to drop everything and start it now!

IMG_20191203_163152_791.jpgYes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed:

I could not contain my excitement when I opened bookmail to find an early copy of this inside! Yes No Maybe So is one of my most anticipated 2020 release and I can’t wait to start reading it asap! Huge thank you to Simon and Schuster for sending me a free review copy!

IMG_20191203_133803_991.jpgThe Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern:

I’ve never read The Night Circus, I know! I absolutely had to have this though, the Waterstones exclusive is stunning! It has a gorgeous sprayed edge, one of the nicest covers under the dustjacket I’ve ever seen, and it comes in three different colours. I’m intrigued by the concept and looking forward to reading it during my Christmas blog break!
