Happy Friday Book Dragons!
I’ve bought and received some excellent books just before and during lockdown so I thought I’d put together a book haul. It’s going to be in two parts as I badly misjudged how many books had come through my door, part two will be up next week.
The lovely people at David Fickling Books blessed me with a free review copy of this beauty. I’m still internally flailing, it’s taking all my willpower not to to drop everything on my TBR and devour it. The excitement for this one is real!
I was sent a free early review copy by the lovely people at Penguin. When the email came through I was intrigued by the concept, though unsure about accepting. After reading the letter written by the author I decided I would give it a try. It’s not going to be for everyone and it’s going to be a tough read. I don’t have a list of trigger warnings to hand, they will definitely be included in my review.
I was so ridiculously excited when this dropped through my letterbox. Destination Anywhere is one of my most anticipated 2020 reads, it’s taking all my willpower to not drop everything and start it immediately. I’m tempted to give in and make it my next read.
My local Waterstones had one signed edition in paperback left and I couldn’t resist bringing it home with me. I don’t usually buy signed copies as I like getting them signed at events, but when you find a Leigh Bardugo one, you have to buy it.
I think everyone knew this one would be here. A new Sarah J Maas is always one of my reading highlights so this one was a must have for me. This Waterstones exclusive was an early birthday present from my mum and I bought the UK tour edition as soon as I found out they were available. I adored this and can’t recommend it enough!
This was gifted to me during a Twitter wishlist exchange. It was the only book by Adam I didn’t own and one I was eager to read as so many regularly rave about it. It’s gone straight onto my priority TBR, I’m so excited to read it!
This was another Smiths purchase. I was so excited when I found a signed edition on the website, I’d been meaning to buy a copy for ages so this went straight in my basket. I still haven’t read the first, both have gone straight to the top of my TBR though!
Buy from: WHSmith
I haven’t heard much about this, what I have heard has all been positive. I was intrigued by the concept and want to read more sci-fi so added it to my order. I have a good feeling about it and think I’ll enjoy it when I get to it.
I have been desperate to read this since the Scholastic Showcase! If the title hadn’t sold me from the start, the synopsis definitely would have. I’ve started reading it and it’s incredible and exactly the kind of book I love to read. Huge thanks to Scholastic for sending me both an early review copy and finished copy!
Anyone who knows me will know how much I love Simon’s books, finding an early copy of Life of Riley waiting for me on the doorstep. I’m so ridiculously excited to read this one, huge thanks to The body people at Scholastic sending one my way.
I’m slowly building my King collection, Doctor Sleep, If It Bleeds, Black House, The Girl who Loved Tom Gordon, The Colorado Kid, Salem’s Lot and The Stand being the latest additions. I’ve read The Outsider, The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon and most of The Stand so far during lockdown.
My sister bought me a copy of this as a belated Easter present. I still need to read the first one, it’s near the top of my TBR so will definitely be reading them asap! I’ve heard nothing but positive things about them.
I was ecstatic when I received a copy of this. Patrick Ness is one of my absolute favourite authors and I’ve been looking forward to Burn since it was announced. This is going straight to the top of my TBR, I cannot contain my excitement!
Yes, I did scream when I found this waiting for me on my doorstop. Anyone who knows me will know how much I adore their books, and there are Dragons, DRAGONS! Huge thanks to Simon & Schuster for providing a free review copy and the Dragon top trumps!
This was gifted to me by teapartyprincess in a wishlist exchange, I’ve been eager to read this for ages so this will definitely be going towards the top of my TBR pile. I’m so ridiculously excited!
This was also a wishlist gift from Andrew. This is one of my absolute favourite ever books and you can bet I’m planning an imminent re-read. I cannot recommend David’s books enough. You can read my review here.
I adored the Jinxed duology and been eager to read this trilogy for ages. I received it from bookishbitsblogblog in a wishlist gift exchange, I’ve heard nothing but excellent things about them, I’m looking forward to losing myself in it asap.
It’s in my hands!! I was so ridiculously excited about this and impatiently awaiting my copy to arrive and after a couple of damaged copies, I finally have one in my hands. I can’t wait to return to Panem and find out more about Snow.
I was so excited when the lovely people at Hot Key Books sent me free review copies of these beauties for the blog tours. I can’t wait lose myself in these in July. You can check out my tour posts for Midnight’s Twins here and Again Again here. They both sound amazing and I can’t wait to get stuck into them!
I received free review copies of these from Josie. I’m a sucker for vampire books and jumped at the chance to read and review these in July. I’m really excited to get stuck in, keep an eye out for my review in the coming weeks.
This was sent to me by Bloomsbury Education as part of the blog tour which was a lovely surprise, Mohinder’s War sounds right up my street. This will be my first book by Bali Rai I read, I’ve heard excellent things about them and will definitely be buying some soon. You can read the tour post here.
Have you read any of these? I’d love to know you thought, let me know in the comments!
