Birthday Book Haul🎉 & other recent books

It’s been exactly one month since my birthday so I thought I’d talk a bit about the books I purchased. I’ve already shared a few and talked a bit about how I bought WAY TOO MANY BOOKS this time in Mid-Year Reading Update  but I talk about each a little bit below. (And hopefully get you all interested in reading them too!😁)

Remember when I said I bought way too many books in my Mid-Year Reading Update? Well, here they are!

At this point in time I still haven’t read any of them. (I know, what is the matter with me.) Last week I wanted to start but I was already reading like four books so I thought I’d wait but now I’m not in the mood for some of them. I will def start reading them next week though, with the Reading Rush, and hopefully most of them in August.

First, there are some I’ve already read in ebook format that I absolutely needed to get a physical copy because I loved them and will def read again at some point. 

  • House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas
  • The Grace Year by Kim Liggett
  • The Dragonet Prophecy and The Hidden Kingdom by Tui T. Sutherland

Sequels that I’m super excited for and simultaneously scared af to read:

  • Dev1at3 (Lifelike #2) by Jay Kristoff 
  • Rage and Ruin (The Harbinger #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
  • The Empire of Gold (Daevabad #3) by S. A. Chakraborty
  • My Youth Romantic Comedy is Wrong as I Expected vol. 3 by Wataru Watari (not scared of this one but a sequel nonetheless)

And the others:

Ice Wolves & Scorch Dragons (Elementals #1, #2) by Amie Kaufman: I just suddenly had a desire to read Amie Kaufman’s middle grade series last month and are probably one of the first of these books that I’ll read.

An Absolutely Remarkable Thing (#1) by Hank Green

The Green Mile by Stephen King: I’m now interested in basically everything this man has written so I will at some point read this one as well though I’m not in the mood for it now.

From Blood & Ash by (Blood & Ash #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Ninth House (Alex Stern #10) by Leigh Bardugo: I’m also super scared to read this one but I’m sure I’ll love it! Also, the large paperback was lit 7€ on Amazon Spain instead of 20€ so I couldn’t just not buy it!?

The Farm by Joanne Ramos: literary fiction books are not my kind of thing and I usually dislike them but The Farm just seems such an interesting and unique story. I’ve had my eye on it for a while now too.

Recent Haul:

Bleach 3-in-1 vol. 10 by Tite Kubo: (includes vols. 28, 29, 30) I’d pretty much given up on owning Bleach since it’s literally 74 volumes long but apparently there’s a 3 in 1 collection which means I’d just have to get 25 volumes! I will definitely invest in this collection in the next few years and finish reading the manga this way. (which I’d previously read online or from the library). Currently waiting for it to arrive.

Bossman by Vi Keeland: I bought a trashy romance novel. It’s surprisingly funny and adorable it’s just the kind of thing I want to read right now (plus it was half-price). The cashier girl actually had the nerve to comment and judge me out loud wow. She was lucky I was in a good mood (at first, at least, she really started pissing me off layer) because next time this happens I’ll fk report her/them. Currently reading.

  1. I need to buy the Daevabad trilogy as well. Now that the final book is out I can binge read the 2nd and 3rd books. For some reason, I don’t like reading long books on Kindle, it feels like the never end. Lol


    1. You def should, so much stuff happens in the 2nd book (and on the 3rd I assume tho I haven’t started it yet I’m too scared) that it’s better to just binge it to not forget any details. I’ll have to check my review and reading notes before I start the 3rd!
      Oh and that’s so interesting, I feel the exact opposite! For me, long books are much less intimidating as ebooks since I can’t physically see the size of it and I don’t really notice my progress until I stop reading for the day and update goodreads.
