Winter 2019-2020 Book Haul

The new year is here, and it’s time to talk about new books!

I think there’s a trend in the book community, that in December you make all your big book purchases with the hope that they will tide you over into the new year, so that you don’t spend as much money on books…or that’s just me. December was the month I got down to business and did as little damage as possible.

My first stop was a trip to Target to pick up medication. While we waited, I made the wise choice mistake to browse through their book selection. That’s where I picked up Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo. Leigh Bardugo is one of my favorite authors and favorite people on the planet. I adore her and her novels, I adore her honesty with her fans, and I’m just a huge supporter of her in general. So this was a no brainer. I audibly gasped out loud when I saw this in person for the first time. *heart eyes*

Next up was a purchase from Amazon. With all the hype surrounding the new Netflix show, I knew I couldn’t wait to borrow this from the library, I had to have my own copy of The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski.

This next section is my BookOutlet haul! BookOutlet is an amazing book retailer that sells discounted, and sometimes scratched or dented, books for a lovely low price. As you’ll see, some of these books complete a series or were on my 20 Books I Want to Read in 2020 post.

An Enchantment of Ravens & Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson. Both of these books are so beautiful, and would be cover buys alone if I hadn’t heard such absolutely wonderful things about them both! An Enchantment of Ravens is about a Fae painter who meets a Fae Prince, while Sorcery of Thorns is about a magical libarary. Sold and sold.
I’ve heard Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan is a very gory, dark read. I’m excited to explore this world, and see if it’s like anything I’ve ever read before.
A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer is a beauty and the beast retelling? I think? If it sucks me in the same way A Court of Thorns and Roses did we’re golden.

Bloodwitch & Windwitch by Susan Dennard third and second book in the Witchlands series. I’m excited to binge this series and learn about this magic system!

Torch Against the Night & A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir are the second and third books in the An Ember in the Ashes series. I have heard so many good things about this author and all of her books that I’m very excited to dive into her writing.

Well…along with my weekly library check outs, these should hold me over through most of 2020! Which one should I read first?!
