This is the post where I eat my words…….. Here is a quote from the end of my October book haul:
With Christmas being only a few weeks away (I can’t believe I just said that!), I don’t plan on getting any books in November. If I have a book haul next month, feel free to yell at me! LOL!
………… yes. Apparently I said that. And I failed miserably so you are all now free to yell at me! In my defence (this is where I try to justify myself) one of them was a preorder from October, one is an ARC, and all the rest were super cheap purchases for my kindle! When a book you were already interested in shows up for only a dollar or two, you don’t turn it down! Here we go!
The first book is THE STARLESS SEA by Erin Morgenstern. This is the book I preordered in October. I still haven’t read it yet….. gasp! I desperately need to get to it! And it’s also one of the most gorgeous hardcovers i’ve ever owned! If you’ve seen it in person then you know!
Book two is the ARC I received from Raincoast books Canada. I’m a part of the blog tour for REVERIE by Ryan La Sala and my post will be up on Wednesday 🙂 This is another gorgeous cover! This one was a bit of a surprise! I went into it with no expectations and I really loved the fantasy elements to this. Dreams that become real? Sounds great but really – it’s terrifying!
Guys I FINALLY picked up THE GUTTER PRAYER by Gareth Hanrahan! I’ve had my eye on this book for months! I don’t think I’ve heard a single bad thing about it. Just the cover alone makes me want to read this one immediately!! I also picked up HEX by Thomas Olde Heuvelt. Joe from J.W. Martin – Storeys of Stories read this one a while back and rated it 5 stars and raved about it for the longest time. I can’t wait to see what he was so excited about!
Out of all the books I’ve hauled this month, CHRISTMAS AT CEDARWOOD LODGE by Rebecca Raisin is the only one I can guarantee that I’ll be reading in December. I’ve been in the mood to read ALL the adorable and romantic christmas books. I can’t wait to see beside my christmas tree and read this one! Next is SHAME ON YOU by Tara Sivec. She is one of my favourite romance authors ever! She wrote the Naughty Princess Club series which is one of my favourite series of all time! This is the start of a new series. I hope it’s full of feisty humour!
And lastly I have the first two books in the Impossible Times series by Mark Lawrence – ONE WORD KILL and LIMITED WISH. I’ve only read one book by this author and I loved his writing. I have an obscene amount of his books on my TBR now. I just keep collecting them and then not reading them. I think I have a problem….
Not bad for the book haul that was never supposed to happen. I wasn’t even supposed to have a haul this month but here I am showing you 8 books I hauled this month. EIGHT. What is wrong with me? I’m a book hoarder. That’s what’s wrong with me. But I don’t consider that a problem……. I consider it a way of life!
Until next time, happy reading!
