Book haul - I bought a book by Stephen King, I might be crazy ;)

I bought some new print books, not too many and they are a very nice mix from different genres. I even bought a book by an author who has the power to give me horrible nightmares, a sure sign that I must be crazy.

Watch my video on the haul to get a closer look of the books: https://youtu.be/Pu47hKBdBkk

Amplified - Tara Kelly

After "Harmonic Feedback" this is going to be the second YA contemporary by the author I'm going to read, once again music plays an important role. I'm also interested in buying & reading her YA thriller "The Foxglove Killings". I hope that "Amplified" is going to be equal parts entertaining and emotional. 

Dealing with Dragons - Patricia C. Wrede

This first book in a series about a princess who doesn't want to be proper and runs away to live with a dragon sounds like a very entertaining and light-hearted adventure.  

The rest of us just live here - Patrick Ness

This stunning book is the first one by Ness I'm going to read, it's a story about normal people, not the special ones. I'm not sure what to expect exactly, but I'm excited to read the book. 

Illuminae - Kaufman + Kaistoff

This book is everywhere and has been since it was released. The book design of the hardcover is stunning and I'm excited to find out how the concept with the different types of texts (for example files) inside of the book will work for me. Btw, the story is set in a world invaded by aliens!

Potion to die for - Heather Blake 

I finally bought a new cozy mystery, it's the first in a series and magic plays an important role. I heard a lot of good things about this series and hope that I will enjoy it. 

The bazaar of bad dreams - Stephen King

Yes, I really bought a book by Stephen King. Years ago I swore to never do this because his stories have the power to give me horrible nightmares. But lately I heard and read several times, that his books are not just for fans of horror, that his thrillers are great and that you should give his books at least one try, so that's what I'm going to do with this collection of short stories. Another book by King I might give a chance is "Mr. Mercedes". 

Public library - Ali Smith

A book about public libraries  and why they are special places, need I say more? Ali Smith's books and especially her writing style is loved by many readers, hopefully I will feel the same after reading this book. 

Ripped from the pages - Kate Carlisle

Another cozy mystery, this time it's part of a series I have enjoyed in the past and I'm excited to see how the story will progress.

Happy Reading!
