I haven’t done a book haul post in forever and that’s why I have so many books for this one so I apologize for the long post in advance!
These are books I’ve purchased within the last 3 months and I will be including Kindle E-Books that aren’t shown in the the picture below.
After The Woods by Kim Savage
I know I’ve feature this book on here before but I did manage to finally get a copy! It has some mixed reviews but all of the reviewers I trust have given it a higher rating so I’m hoping it’s as good as expected. I really love psychological thrillers (really it’s the only contemporary I like to read) and it should be pretty dark and twisted. Fingers crossed!
Revenge and the Wild by Michelle Modesto
First of all the cover is crazy gorgeous so even if the book itself doesn’t live up to expectations it’s still a beauty on the bookshelf! This book is apparently a misch mash of many genres including: western, steampunk, fantasy, paranormal, etc. Seriously it’s got a lot going on and I’m excited to see how those will all blend together!
The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury
I have actually already read this and have yet to get my review up (sorry! I’m really awful at getting my reviews up lately), but I did give it a full 5 star rating so you know it’s a perfect read! The cover is gorgeous and so is the story.
Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke
Another book I have already read and haven’t reviewed yet, this one was a little disappointing mostly because I had no idea what was really going on with it. I enjoyed it but also it was a bit too odd for my tastes.
Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell
I’m currently reading this, I’m a BIG fan of the Peter Pan story so of course I had to get my hands on this retelling. So far it’s a decent book like the little twists on the original characters and story.
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
Why haven’t I read this yet, you may ask. The answers is: because I haven’t. This is a pretty hyped book and with the sequel coming out this fall I really need to make time to read this soon. Plus the paperback was released and I looooove paperbacks.
Kill The Boy Band by Goldy Moldavsky
This was an impulse buy if you want me to buy your book make it pretty and hot pink and you’ll increase your chances tenfold. Yes I loved the cover but I also just loved the title, I mean “Kill the Boy Band”? That screams interesting. I think the story is literally what the title tells you, a pack of fangirls get their hands on a member of their favorite boy band. You can imagine. Also I love books about fangirls, since I am one….
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
No I haven’t read this yet…..yes I do know the movie is coming out…no I haven’t seen the trailer because I live in fear of spoilers. NO SPOILERS. More than likely I will wait to the last minute for this one in which case I mean right before the movie comes out so I can go see it.
Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas
This comes highly recommended by a few of my blogger friends as well as trusted reviewers. So I got a copy for $5 and here I am. This is a sort of thriller mixed in with your usual YA contemporary and while I do want to read it it’s not really high up on my TBR right now.
The Creeping by Alexandra Sirowy
It’s supposed to be creepy and I do love creepy stories, I also got it for $4 so of course I had to get a copy even if it does sit around on my shelf for a while…….
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Ok I’m going to be honest: I bought this because I want to know what the big deal is. I love challenging hype that way like, “Yeah what’s so great about you? Let’s see”. Also I got sick of everyone talking about “The Raven King” and possible spoilers. I figured I would just read all of them (if I like this one) and avoid spoilers.
The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski
Because I read the other two and loved them and now I must see how it all plays out…..
The Rose and The Dagger by Renee Ahdieh
Once again…because I read and loved the first one and I desperately need to know how it ends! Seriously though, Renee Ahdieh can write DAMN well.
Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
I love Laini Taylor and after that cliffhanger in “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” I need answers!!
Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay
I got it for $3 and it has some good reviews so it was worth buying to check out. I like retellings and while I think Beauty and the Beast is overdone I figured I’ve give this one a shot. Did I mention I got for $3? That’s its winning quality right there.
The Stars Never Rise by Rachel Vincent
Great reviews, great premise. How could I not buy this one? It’s dystopia and paranormal mixed together.
Dark Shimmer by Donna Jo Napoli
This is a book I got based purely off of the premise and the cover, it’s a retelling of the origin of the Evil Queen from Snow White and it’s also set in Venice. How does that NOT sound amazing?
A Book of Spirits and Thieves Morgan Rhodes
So I haven’t read “Falling Kingdoms” yet and it’s a little embarassing but I also saw fantastic reviews for this book and I was told you don’t have to read the Falling Kingdoms series first in order to read this one. So here I am with a copy of this!
Last But Not Least: Stalking Jack The Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
This is my very first physical ARC and I’m super pumped about it! The title is pretty self explanatory and I cannot wait to start this. The book isn’t set to be released until September 20th though.
Now for the E-Books! Which aren’t picture but I will provide you with covers regardless.
The Uninvited by Cat Winters
I have loved Cat Winters’ writing ever since I read her other book “The Steep & Thorny Way” and even though this one is adult fiction rather than YA I couldn’t resist getting a copy on my Kindle since it’s only $0.99. (I think it’s still at this price by the way)
Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
Tons of great reviews for this book and pretty much everyone has read it but me so here I am with a copy, plus I love YA Fantasy.
Our Lady of the Ice by Cassandra Rose Clarke
This isn’t YA but it sounded super interesting and even though it has some mixed reviews I figured I’d give it a shot.
Starflight by Melissa Landers
This is the only ebook I have on this list that I actually paid full price for! It has stellar (get it? Stellar?) reviews and I had to buy it, especially since I’m looking for more YA science fiction books.
Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin
This was on sale for $1.99 for a day a while ago and I was screaming with excitement because EVERYONE loves this book and its super underrated so I HAD to buy it.
Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen
YA Fantasy? Check. On sale for a cheap price at the time? Check. Everyone seems to love it? Check.
Front Lines by Michael Grant
I loved Grant’s Gone series and this book is about an alternate WWII setting where women could enlist to fight. How does that not sound awesome?
Shallow Graves by Kali Wallace
This had mixed reviews but it sounded interesting enough and for $1.99 I’m not really going to be too judgemental.
Assassin’s Heart by Sarah Ahiers
Not the greatest reviews around and this may not be my cup of tea but the idea behind this book, mafia-style families of assassins, sounded too good to pass up for $1.99.
Sorry for the long post! I’m going to try and do my book hauls a little quicker than this so my posts won’t be so long next time.
Are there any books on this list that you’ve read?
Any books here that you want to read or get your hands on?
Have you had any great hauls lately?
Let me know in the comments! I love hearing from you guys!
