Book haul: A nice mix + pretty pages


Let's talk about the books I bought in the last weeks. I have a nice pile of new to me books from different genres and hope that all of the books will be entertaining. 

The Chemist - Stephenie Meyer
I love "The Host" and know that Meyer's writing style works for me, so I bought her new book even though the plot is one that might not be perfect for me. But I in trust in Meyer to entertain me and make me enjoy the world she created. 

You are here - Jennifer E. Smith 
This is the one book by the author I haven't read so far, I want to change that so I bought a copy of this YA contemporary novel. 

The topic of serpents - Marie Brennan
I loved the first book in this charming series, so of course I want to go on with it. 

A short book that's part of a series for young readers about special beings. 

Summon the Keeper - Tanya Huff
The first book in a fantasy series that sounds very entertaining, plus there's a cat. 

Forever, again - Victoria Laurie
I loved Laurie's first YA book "When", so of course I had to have the second one as well. The story is about two love stories, one in the present, one in the past. And it's about a tragedy and mystery from the past, that will finally be solved. 

Summer days & summer nights (UK version) - various
Even though only four out of the twelve short stories in this book worked for me, I still wanted my own print copy. Because the four books I liked were fantastic. 

Counting Thyme - Melanie Conklin
A book for young readers about a 11 year old girl, her family, their struggles and a big move. The story sounds emotional and I'm pretty sure that it will make me cry. Hopefully the ending won't break my heart.

Six of crows - Leigh Bardugo
In the past books by Bardugo haven't been perfect for me, I struggled with caring about the characters, however because so many readers enjoyed this duology I wanted to give the first book in it a second chance. 

Btw, Bardugo's next book/series, "Ninth House", sounds pretty good to me, especially because it's set in our normal world, which often works better for me than fantasy ones. 

Happy Reading!

  1. I love stories about unicorns. I just checked to see if my library has this book but they don't they do have the first two in the series so I'll start there and then see if they'll order the others.

    Thanks for bringing this series to my attention. :)

    1. The book is the last in a series of four, maybe all will appeal to your son.

  4. I know I'll get judged for saying this but I genuinely loved the Twilight books! I haven't read the Host but I'd like to give The Chemist a try because it sounds new and exciting :) Lovely haul x

    1. I read and enjoyed the Twilight books years ago as well. I'm not blind to the weaknesses of the books, however I also don't understand why people get aggressive about the series.

      Happy Reading!
