Hello, all! I gushed a lot about my November Book Haul in my last post, but let me tell you this – there were even MORE. I actually bought loads of books in the month of November.
Without further ado, let’s dive right into it!
The first two books that I’m going to show you are “Finding Father Christmas / Engaging Father Christmas Bundle” by Robin Jones Gunn
I actually read ‘Finding Father Christmas’ on my kindle this time last year, but I haven’t read its sequel ‘Engaging Father Christmas” yet. I had been on my hunt for Christmassy books when I found this bundle and I immediately put it in my cart and ordered it.
The next book is ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’ by Trisha Ashley.
Big confession time – I picked up this book for its cover XD
I was originally debating whether to get Fern Michael’s ‘Wishes For Christmas’ which has got an amazing, festive cover. But having run through the reviews both on Amazon and Goodreads, I started wondering if it was a good idea to pick it up without having read any of her previous books. A lot of reviewers are actually suggesting one should read her other books first because the characters from her other books do make an appearance and the author doesn’t take much time to explain who they are 😦
I wanted to get that book so bad but didn’t want to risk wasting my good earned money, so instead, I picked up this Holiday fantasy book. I don’t know much about the synopsis, but do hope it’s good.
Next book is ‘Everything Everything’ by Nicola Yoon.
I’d had my eyes on this book for quite some time since I watched a BookTuber’s video.
A story about a girl who is in a quite unique, sterilized environment where she only comes into contact with two people – her mom and her nurse sounds very promising and interesting.
I didn’t used to read a lot of YA books before, but I now realize I’m starting to be liking it. Taking into account a lot of high reviews, I know this book is going to be a fun, delightful read 🙂
The books I’m going to share with you from now onwards are the ones that I ordered in November but haven’t received yet.
First up, The Mist Born Trilogy Box Set by Brandon Sanderson! Yayyyy!
I’ve always wanted to read this trilogy but as I told in my post on ‘Cinder,’ I always feel intimidated out of concern that I might fail to have a good grip on the world or the settings.
However, the more I heard about good things about this Trilogy, (About ‘The Final Empire’ to be more precise), the more antsy I became and I just couldn’t resist getting my hands on it.
That’s totally a different issue that I get to read them all, I may not finish reading them by the end of this year, but it certainly gives me peace of mind that I now actually posses the series.
It’s already been dispatched from Book Depository and is on my way to my doorstep. Just can’t wait to get it!
Next up is another series that unexpectedly got me hooked – ‘The Lunar Chronicles’ by Marissa Meyer.
I don’t think I need to talk much about this series; I already gushed enough in my ‘Cinder’ post about how much I ADORE this series despite not having read them all.
That said, I would argue that reading Cinder was enough to hold me in thrall and make me hopeful for the whole series.
I placed an order last Saturday afternoon but has yet to be dispatched.
Oh, no. I just can’t wait to read the next!
My heart is just screaming for the sequels!
Last but definitely not least – Yes, I bought another hyped Duology – ‘The Six of Crows Duology’ by Leigh Bardugo.
Despite all the reasons that I mentioned earlier, I’ve been meaning to read this duology for quite some time.
Unfortunately, I had to get two books separately rather than getting a box set due to the payment method which was available at the store.
‘Crooked Kingdom’ will be arriving tomorrow while I’m going to have to wait until middle of the month to get ‘Six of Crows,’ but I’m so excited to finally read the duology!
Now, I’m so surprised at how many books I bought this month. It’s way out of my monthly budget but honestly, I don’t regret having bought these books 🙂
I love having physical books in my hands, I adore seeing my books on my shelves.
Will I ever stop buying books?
