Today’s post is a book haul. Over this past month, I have brought six new books. All of which I’m excited to read and thought I’d share them with you. The information given to you about these books all come from the synopsis.
The first book is The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon, I’m going to say much about this book as this is the one that I am currently reading, and absolutely loving, a full review of the book will be posted once I have finished it. But I will say one thing if you haven’t read this series you should! It’s so magical and fantastic!
The second book in this book haul is The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton. The book follows eighteen -year-old Nella Oortman, who arrives at a grand house in Amsterdam to begin her new life as the wife of wealthy merchant Johannas Brandit. She receives a replica of their house, later to discover that the secrets of her new household she realizes the escalating dangers that face. The miniaturist seems to hold their fate in her hands – but does she plan to save or destroy them.
The third book is the Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. focused around a criminal prodigy Kaz Breaker who has been offered wealth beyond his wildest dreams. But to claim it he will have to pull off a seemingly impossible heist. This book has been raved about by so many I thought I just had to buy it so that I can see what all the hype is about, however, to do love books with criminal elements so I’ll no doubt absolutely love this book.
The Fourth book in this haul is Passenger by Alexandra Bracken, I’ve heard so many positive opinions about Alexandra Bracken’s work and her previous novels, I have yet to have read anything by her, but Passenger really caught my attention, I might be a little late to the bandwagon but I’m sure ill enjoy it. This book focuses on the main character Etta Spencer who is wrenched from everything she knows and loves, thrown into an unfamiliar world, she can be certain of only one thing: she has travelled not just miles, but years from home. I am so excited to delve into this world and unravel what else the story has to offer.
The fifth and sixth book of this haul are by an author I fell in love with from just reading one of her books, and is V. E. Schwab. I read Vicious earlier in this year (before I started this blog) but I absolutely fell in love with her writing style and couldn’t wait to read more! The two books are A gathering of Shadows, the second book to A Darker Shade of Magic trilogy based on Kell who is a time travelling magician, which I haven’t started yet but intend to do so over this summer holiday. The Second book is her most anticipated book of this year and that is This Savage Song, focused on two main characters Kate Harker and August Flynn are the heirs to a divided city, where the violence has begun to create real and deadly monsters. Kate wants to be as ruthless as her father, whilst August wants to be human, as good-hearted as his own father. Both of these books fascinate me and I cannot wait to be sucked into the world.
