Birthday Book Haul!

Birthday Book Haul!

BOOK REVIEW (8)
Today I’m posting my birthday book haul. My birthday was actually in September and I got quite a few gift cards but I was holding off for a few books that were being released in October before I used them. I got some amazing books and I’m so excited to read them!

1. Muse of Nightmares – Laini Taylor
The first book I knew I was going to pick up was Muse of Nightmares. I loved Strange the Dreamer so much and I’m super excited to dive into this. It’s massive so I’m hoping for plenty of beautiful writing and intense moments.

I’ve heard so many people ranting and raving about this book that I just had to pick it up. I’ve never read a book by Naomi Novik so I’m excited to dive into a new fantasy authors writing.

3. Daughter of the Siren Queen – Tricia Levenseller
I read Daughter of the Pirate King earlier this year and absolutely fell in love with the characters. I’ve been holding off to get a paperback version of Daughter of the Siren Queen but I couldn’t resist any longer. I’ve already dived in and loved the ending to this duology.

I’ve never read Leslye Walton’s other book (The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender) but I had heard good things about this and thought it would be the perfect Halloween read. It also has a stunning cover so I had to pick it up. I’ve since read it and thought it was okay – it wasn’t really what I was expecting and I ended up giving it three out of five stars.

5. These Rebel Waves – Sarah Raasch
I’ve been loving sea/pirate related books lately so when I saw people getting this in their Fairyloot I had to pick it up. I’m so excited to read this because it sounds amazing. Reviews for it have been a little mixed though so I’m looking forward to seeing what I think.

6. Sea Witch – Sarah Henning

I’ve read a few Little Mermaid retellings this year so I just had to pick up Sea Witch. This is another one that I’ve heard really amazing things about so I’m hoping I’ll be able to dive into it in October because I’m dying to find out what’s in store.

7. A Secret History of Witches – Louisa Morgan

This is a book I didn’t know too much about but I saw it was onsale for £1 and it was about witches and that was me sold. I love a good witchy story and I think this will be perfect for reading in the winter months.

8. Our Dark Duet – Victoria Schwab

I’ve become a bit obsessed with books by Victoria Schwab so I’m trying to complete my collection. So far this year I’ve read three of her books and I’m definitely hoping to squeeze in a few more before the end of the year!

9. Pendragon – James Wilde

As a child I always really loved stories about King Arthur so when the publisher kindly sent me Dark Age – book two in this King Arthur series I immediately ordered Pendragon. I can’t wait to binge read these gorgeous books.

10. The Wicked Deep – Shea Earnshaw
OH MY GOD THIS BOOK. I picked it up because I’d heard people say it was a good story and very atmospheric but I wasn’t prepared for how much I would love this. It was so dark and creepy and such a well written plot. It will definitely be on my favourite books of 2018 list.

This is another one that I picked up kind of on a whim. I don’t know too much about it but I’ve seen a few booktubers give really rave reviews about it so I’m hoping I will really enjoy it too. I know the sequel has just come out so at least when I do get around to reading it I won’t have to wait too long to pick up book two.

Untitled design (33)12. Vengeful – V. E. Schwab
Who is surprised to see this on this list? Absolutely no one. I picked up Vicious and pretty much didn’t put it down the entire time I was reading it. It was an amazing read and has definitely solidified Victoria Schwab as one of my new favourite authors. I haven’t picked up Vengeful yet but I am going to be very very soon and I hope I love it as much as Vicious.

13. Shiver Box Set – Maggie Stiefvater

My boyfriend also bought me a box set of the Shiver series by Maggie Stiefvater. I’ve never read these but I know they’re pretty much classics of the YA genre and so many people love them. I’m not sure when I’ll get around to reading them but I’m very much looking forward to it.

14. Delirium Box Set – Lauren Oliver

Similarly I also got a box set of the Delirium books by Lauren Oliver. I’ve actually never read any of her books despite owning a couple so hopefully having the complete set of Delirium books will push me to pick them up!

So that’s my birthday book haul! Have you read any of these, if you have let me know what you thought and if there’s any you think I should prioritise!

    1. I’m so excited to read them all! The Wicked Deep was definitely a 5 star read, I couldn’t believe how atmospheric it was! I’m hoping to get to A Secret History of Witches in November, fingers crossed it’s a good read!
