(Over Due) Huge Book Haul!

Top Ten Tuesday (26)

Honestly I should have been doing book hauls every time I got a decent amount of books but here I am piling them all together into one! These are books I collected over the summer and part of fall here and there definitely are a ton to share!

I did actually order another small haul from Book Outlet here as well as a few other books I just picked up but I decided instead of waiting to include them I’d just maybe do another book haul here shortly.

So without further ado let’s get into this book haul!

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling 20th Anniversary Edition

This was something I was super pumped to get for my birthday because I didn’t think anyone would actually get it for me! This is the UK hardback Ravenclaw edition (because I am a Ravenclaw, of course!) and it’s absolutely gorgeous it has blue edged pages with yellow stripes. There’s also just some fun little “facts” about Ravenclaw house as well as a beautiful map of Hogwarts inside as well.

I also received those gorgeous Harry Potter bookmarks with it!

The Wood by Chelsea Bobulski

Mostly I wanted this for the cover which is gorgeous and creepy all at once with a leaf dripping blood. It seems creepy but also not, if that makes sense? There’s portals and woods and it all sounds super interesting!

Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi

I literally waited forever for Book Outlet to get copies of this one in! I’ve been wanting to read something by Tahereh Mafi for a while but her Shatter Me series doesn’t seem up my alley and so I wanted to try this one. Plus the cover is really vibrant and colorful.

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

Another Book Outlet purchase, I wasn’t originally going to buy this book but since everything is so cheap on Book Outlet I decided I might as well. I’m always a sucker for pirate books so hopefully this one lives up to some expectations.

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

Everyone was hyping this book up quite a bit and normally I’m not a huge contemporary reader but I thought it sounded interesting and I do want to broaden my bookish horizons a bit!

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

Norse Mythology plus Neil Gaiman? I was sold instantly! Of course I needed to buy it!

Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza

This one had pretty good reviews and I honestly need more great YA sci-fi books in my life, that’s all!

The Valiant by Lesley Livingston

A female gladiator? Once again, sold instantly.

Bad Romance by Heather Demetrios

The cover is gorgeous and this seems like a really unique contemporary since it focuses on a dysfunctional and abusive relationship.

A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab

I haven’t read AGOS yet but I figured while Book Outlet still had copies of this that I would buy it that way I had the next book right away!

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Of course I bought this because I adore Laini Taylor and need ALL her books in my life.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

So originally I wasn’t going to buy this book either since I’m iffy on whether I’d enjoy it or not but once again Book Outlet! I figured since it was cheap I’d just buy it and hopefully enjoy it, if not at least it’s pretty.

Little Monsters by Kara Thomas

I loved Thomas’s other book “The Darkest Corners” and so I had to buy her newest book, she really knows how to write some great twisted thrillers!

Because You Love To Hate Me stories selected by Amerie 

A good amount of hype plus short stories told from the villains POV and some great YA authors collaborating with Booktubers? I definitely had to check this one out.

It by Stephen King

Yes, yes I did just buy this book after seeing the movie! The movie of course was excellent and I highly recommend seeing it! This is a pretty intimidating book but I do want to read it eventually because I also adore Stephen King.

The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima

More fantasy books, woohoo! I really need to start reading some of her books because now I have two from each of her series….

The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

I wasn’t going to buy this one but I’ve decided to start ignoring reviews on certain things and just try it myself especially since I really love fantasy books.

Sabriel by Garth Nix

Moooooore fantasy books….

The Devils You Know by M.C. Atwood 

Horror book for Halloween, right? This was an ARC sent to me for review.

No Saints in Kansas by Amy Brashear

Another ARC sent to me for review, this one is based off of “In Cold Blood” by Truman Capote which sounds super interesting.

The Hollow Girl by Hillary Monahan

Another ARC that I have reviewed already, it was absolutely freaking fantastic.

(Review Here)

The Hanging Girl by Eileen Cook

An ARC once again. Very fast paced with some great twists, it’s perfect for non-horror readers for Halloween.

Heroes of Olympus Series by Rick Riordan

I finally bought the entire box set from Book Outlet! Super excited to dive back into some Riordan books because of course they’re always fun, fast, and fantastic!

The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson

The year I started blogging this was a new release and it’s a fantasy about a girl going “undercover” in order to infiltrate the rulers who conquered her homeland, there’s also a F/F romance. Sounds super good and Book Outlet had this one on sale so of course I scooped it up!

    I loved Furthermore and Strange the Dreamer. I’m not a fan of Riordan’s Percy Jackson series, and I’m not going to read any more of his books.

      Glad you enjoyed both Furthermore and Strange the Dreamer since those are 2 I’m really excited to read. Sorry to hear that about Riordan’s books, I think I remember you mentioning on Twitter you had issues with how he portrayed the Greek mythology right? Correct me if I’m wrong! 🙂


      • ashley October 23, 2017 / 7:54 pm

        There were other issues that I had with his books too.

    That’s a great haul! I can’t wait to see what you think of Sabriel; that series has a special place in my heart. I also love that you got the UK Strange the Dreamer. That’s the best cover 🙂

      Thank you! I’ve heard really good things about the Abhorsen series and I waited forever for Book Outlet to get copies in and not sell out right away so I could get my hands on one! I also agree with you on the UK cover of Strange the Dreamer i thought it was better as well, love all the blues! 🙂

        Right? I hope the sequel matches the UK cover. Yeah the original trilogy is amazing! I do like the fourth and fifth that are out, but you can read the original trilogy on its own. Tim Curry does the audio books too 🙂

    Ultra Amazing Book Haul and I can’t wait to see what is on your next book haul with all your goodies arriving soon! I loved Caraval so I hope you enjoy it as well and I haven’t heard of a bunch of these books before so definitely excited to see their future reviews such as Daughter of a Pirate King – that title has me intrigued!

      Thanks Hannah! I am excited to read Caraval even though there are mixed reviews, even if I don’t like it the cover is still gorgeous!
      I love the title for Daughter of the Pirate King as well and I’ve got my fingers crossed that there is plenty of pirate action in it! 🙂

    Wow, that’s an amazing haul!! Ibreally enjoyed The Valiant and I’m really excited to read Strange The Dreamer and A Conjuring of Light (they both have amazing reviews).

    Also I loved those Harry Potter bookmarks (are they bookmarks?) 😊.

      Thank you! Glad you loved The Valiant especially since I feel like not that many people have read it! I’ve heard nothing but good things about Strange the Dreamer and A Conjuring of Light as well, hopefully they both live up to expectations!
      They are Harry Potter bookmarks! They were pretty spendy but my boyfriend is very proud of getting them for me and they really are gorgeous! 🙂

    Tearling is very much a love-it-or-hate-it series. Everyone seems to like the first book, though! 🙂 I really enjoyed the whole thing, so I hope you do, too.

    THOSE BOOKMARKS. I really like them. Are they wood or metal? They look fancy.

      Glad to hear you enjoyed Tearling! I agree, with the reviews I’ve read it really is a love it or hate it kind of book. Hopefully I love it though!

      They’re metal! They are pretty fancy or at least I feel fancy with them, haha! 🙂

    What an amazing book haul, Heather 🌸
    I still haven’t bought any of the house editions of Harry Potter, I’m hoping to ask for them for Christmas! Bad Romance and Strange The Dreamer is very high on my TBR so I can’t wait to read them and I hope you enjoy them too!

    IT is a bit intimidating, but it’s so worth it! I remember finishing over a weekend where I literally did nothing else but read the book. Caraval was a bit of a let down for me, but you’re right – the cover is really, really pretty though.

    I hope you enjoy all of these 🌸

      Thank you Michelle!

      I asked for the Ravenclaw edition for my birthday and I got it, I feel like it’s a great idea for gifts rather than going and buying yourself you know? Hope you get at least one of them for Christmas if anyone needs them it’s definitely you!

      Holy crap you finished It in one weekend?! Teach me your secrets! I have such a hard time sitting down and reading for long stretches of time unless I’m really engrossed so maybe I will be once I start It!
