So, this is actually the sum of all the books I’ve gotten this month. Quite a few, as you can see! But why so many? Well, I made a fabulous 7-minute stop at Oxfam Books and I got 7 books in those 7 minutes! Seriously, fantastic fantastic trip. Gave me a chance to grab a bunch of books I might not otherwise have gotten. I also splurged at Foyles and Bookdepository – buying quite a few books that I’d been looking forward to.
All in all, lots of yummy books!
- Dante Valentine: The Complete Series by Lilith Saintcrow – Oxfam find #1 – Isn’t it lovely and gigantic… all 5 books for only £3!
- The Replacement by Brenna Yonavoff – I finally cracked and bought the scary US cover from Foyles. Really looking forward to this one!
- Duty Calls: Dunkirk by James Holland – Sent for review from Puffin – thanks!
- Sabriel (Abhorsen #1) by Garth Nix – Oxfam find #2 – I have never gone out of my way to get a Garth Nix book as the summaries never “spoke” to me. But seeing as he’s had fantastic reviews, I thought – for a few pounds – I should give him a shot!
- Darkest Mercy (Wicked Lovely #5) by Melissa Marr – Oxfam find #3 – Really need to catch up on series!
- Fire Bringer by David Clement-Davies – Oxfam find #4 – This one has a quote on the cover from THE Richard Adams.
- Masques (Sianim #1) by Patricia Briggs – Oxfam find #5 – Seeing as I love Brigg’s Mercy series, I’m excited to see what her early work is like.
- Afterlife (Evernight #4) by Claudia Gray – Oxfam find #6 – Again, really need to catch up on the series!
- Trash by Andy Mulligan – Oxfam find #7 – This cover is even more gorgeous in real life. Stunning book and stunning synopsis. Hope I love it!
- Defiance (Strange Angels #4) by Lili St. Crow – Strange Angels!!! *does a little dance*
- Fade (Dream Catcher #2) by Lisa McMann – The lovely LOVELY US hardcover of this book. I adored Wake, so really can’t wait to start this one!
- Catching Fire (Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins – I have had to physically restrain myself from starting this book immediately. Had to hide it under a bunch of other stuff – out of sight, out of mind.
- Bite Club (Morganville Vampires #10) by Rachel Caine – Apparently there are some shockers in this book, so I hope it will be an improvement on Ghost Town.
- Natural History by Neil Cross – This was a gift from a friend. She gave it to me saying “This book was written for you”, which makes me both excited and apprehensive!
- Mockingjay (Hunger Games #3) by Suzanne Collins – GORGEOUS.
- Gone (Dream Catcher #3) by Lisa McMann – My trilogy is now complete!
- Throne of Jade (Temeraire #2) by Naomi Novik – I’ve already read this one. Really like the UK covers (despite them not being hardcovers).
- The Stress of her Regard by Tim Powers – Apparently, my mother knew Tim quite well when he was starting out as a writer. When I googled him, I found out he’s had an AMAZINGLY successful career in fantasy. So, I nabbed this at Foyles and am really looking forward to starting it. (And isn’t the cover just gorgeous.)
