I’m so proud of myself this month….. I used restraint! Ok, I’m totally lying…. i’m super broke and couldn’t afford to buy many books this month….. but i’m going with the restraint story because it makes me look better lol! I only hauled 4 books this month. One was a preorder, one was an ARC, one was a promotional short story, and the other was an ebook on sale. So this haul will be a short one 🙂
The first book I’ll talk about is DEV1AT3 by Jay Kristoff. I’ve actually already read it 🙂 The review will be posted tomorrow so stay tuned! Spoiler alert – I liked it a lot lol
The next “book” is the short story I was talking about. If you preordered Aurora Rising, you could enter to have a short story that’s related to the Illuminae Files series sent out. It didn’t apply to Canadians (I’m really starting to think that Jay Kristoff doesn’t like Canadians but that’s ok….. I’ll still love you anyways) so I had this sent to a friend who was lovely enough to ship it over to me. Reading this made me want more of this world and the characters. I want more Aidan!
Swipe Right for Murder by Derek Milman is the ARC that I got this month – and I’m SOOOO excited for it! I loved his debut novel and this one sounds so good! On the run from the FBI, targeted by a murderous cult, labeled a cyber-terrorist by the media, Irritated texts from his best friend, eye contact with a nice-looking guy on the train, and waking up next to a dead guy…… see?! This sounds amazing, right?!
And, lastly, we have Sea of Rust by C. Robert Cargill. This is a book that my cousin Joe at J.W. Martin Storeys of Stories has mentioned numerous times. Every time he talked about it I could visualize this cover and I would get stars in my eyes. The book sounds good, but this cover was the selling point for me. I hope that I can get to this soon 🙂
Those are the books I hauled this month. If we were talking unhauls though…. this list would have been about 30 books long! I went through my shelves and got rid of ones that I didn’t enjoy or ones that I just never planned on reading. The library seemed very happy to put them on their shelves!
What was your favourite book purchase this month?
Until next time, happy reading!
