Despite telling myself that I had absolutely no spare money at the end of June, I still went ahead and bought some books. But they were Brandon Sanderson books, so I think my spree was warranted? Right? Yes. Good. A bunch of amazing people sent me some books as well, because they’re brilliant and I love them to pieces. Even if some of them (Meg) are trying to ruin my life. There’ll probably be another book haul next month because I’m planning on going on a celebratory book shopping spree at some point in the next couple of weeks.
Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick
This was an unsolicited review copy, but I will be putting it on my TBR for August because I really like the Hush, Hush series. Yes, I know Patch is a horrible person, but since when have I cared about that?
The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick
I haven’t seen the series on Youtube so I sent this to Judith to review instead. Enjoy, Jude!
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
YESSSSSSSSSSS. I was going to buy the hardcover (*whispers* I love you, Morgan) but then Simon & Schuster offered me this so I flailed and died and resurrected and accepted.
Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld
All I know about this one is that it has a story within a story. I’m worried I’m not going to like it. We’ll see.
The Savages by Matt Whyman
I quite liked this weird story about cannibals.
Say Her Name by James Dawson
This was creepy, but there was too much romance. Bloody Mary, though!
The Violent Century by Lavie Tidhar
To start my “Gifted” section, my wonderful fellow history lover Rinn sent me The Violent Century! She liked it, but not enough to keep it, so I’ll be reading this ASAP.
Blackout by Mira Grant
I also cried a lot. I want to read these next month!
Sepulchre by Kate Mosse
My boss brought in a bunch of books and I nabbed this one up. I need to read Labyrinth first, though.
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
I read this when it first came out and I finally bought my beautiful hardcover all for myself.
Welcome to the #SandersonArmy section! I went on a bit of a spree after finishing The Final Empire and dying over it. I bought these two from Foyles in London.
And I bought this beautiful boxset from Ebay when I decided I couldn’t wait any longer. Who cares if I didn’t have the money? The Final Empire is the best book I’ve read all year, and I cannot wait to continue with the trilogy (series?). BUT, I am really scared so I’ve been putting it off.
