Bookish, Misc.

A February Haul.

February has always been the month for book buying for me. Not only is it my birthday, but the month’s wages are significantly bigger, and I still have Christmas money leftover.

Yes, February is a good month.

And of course, what else am I going to do than buy books that I have no room for?


The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson: I read I’ll Give You The Sun and almost burst into tears at how beautiful it was. I had no idea that it wasn’t even Jandy Nelson’s first novel. I swiped up The Sky is Everywhere AS SOON AS I COULD.

Winter by Marissa Meyer: I have a bit of a weird relationship with The Lunar Chronicles. Sometimes, I’m enjoying it, sometimes it feels a little too young for me. Lots of blushing and squealing…I dunno. But, after meeting Winter in Cress, I knew I had to get the final installment.

A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab: I read Vicious and thought it was good fun. I read A Darker Shade of Magic and V.E. Schwab became one of my favourite authors. I saw AGOS in Waterstones before the release date and almost knocked over a display trying to grab for it.

More Than This by Patrick Ness: I’ve only read one Patrick Ness book and that was The Rest of Us Just Live Here, because I love reading about people who are a part of the ‘chosen one’ story, but aren’t actually the ‘chosen one’. People have told me this book is weird. I like weird.


The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black: I read Black’s Curse Workers series first and loved it. Mafia and superpowers? Yes please! I then got my hands on The Darkest Part of the Forest and everything was beautiful. Surely, this book is the next step in a Holly Black addiction?

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard: This one was a complete stab in the dark. A lot of internet buzz, and witches. I like witches. Let’s see how this goes.

Soundless by Richelle Mead: I’ve only read Vampire Academy. I stopped because I could, not because I didn’t like it. I haven’t picked up the second and I’m not sure I will. But this one I saw on the shelf at work and it’s so small – let’s give Richelle Mead another go.

    I’m really excited for Soundless. I have heard many good things about that one.

      Me too. A lot of people love Richelle Mead’s writing so I want to delve into her work more than just Vampire Academy.

        Yeah, same. I have also read only the first book in the Vampire Academy series and I loved it. I want to buy this one but it’s currently out of stock. 🙁

    I really liked I’ll Give You the Sun but then I read The Sky is Everywhere and I loved it. It is raw and tender but it has lovely family members that I fell in love with. IYou will love it.
    I enjoyed Soundless though the ending was super rushed in my opinion. I could have done with a longer book, really developing the characters and going deeper into the world.
    Truthwitch is my bookclub’s pick of the month so I hope its good!
    I read Patrick Ness’s Chaos Walking Trilogy and loved it and cried my eyes out to a Monster Calls, so I moved on to the Crash of Hennington which was… interesting. I’ve been meaning to pick up more of his books.
