MY THOUGHTS ON BOOK HAULS

discussions_2018feature

Hey guys, today I’m coming at you with a new discussion post and today I’m talking about book hauls! In 2018 I stopped posting monthly book hauls and this year I’ve started them again because I wanted to see how I felt about the two experiences and today that’s what I’m chatting to you guys about!

MY JAN/FEB HAUL // Owned books, library books & movies!

bookhaulfeature

Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog, today I’m coming at you guys with a haul! I haven’t done one of these on my blog in months since my massive 2018 Book Haul but this year I wanted to try my hand at hauls, while also including the books and movies I’m getting out from the library because I know I love reading library hauls! I’m also including the movies I’m buying because last year I bought a silly amount of dvds and I’d really like to document what I’ve been buying and when!

THE BIG BOOK HAUL OF 2018

Okay, so I know this looks bad. And, that’s because it is. 2018 was a ridiculous year for book buying, though I do want to stress that most of these books were either gifts for birthdays or Christmas or they were thrift store buys. Otherwise, I got them on sales or from deals, I think I bought maybe one book full price and that was just because I couldn’t find it cheaper at the time and I was really excited about it (hint: it was Circe)

I know that this is a big haul, and I will be the first person to admit that it’s pretty ridiculous. But, I do want to stress that a bunch of these I had already read before this year or I read throughout the year. If I unhauled any of these books that’s just because I got them from a thrift store and just put them on my mum’s bookshelf because I think she might enjoy it more than me.

MY 2018 AUDIOBOOK HAUL PART 2

Hey guys! Today I’m coming at you with part 2 of my audiobook haul for 2018! I definitely slowed down with my audiobook (and physical book) buying in the second half of the year because I wasn’t reading as much – and when I was it was mostly just physical library books.

If you want to look at the audiobooks I bought from January – June this year, click here!

Remember to click on the covers to go to the audible pages!

MY LIBRARY HAUL | JULY + AUGUST 2018

Hey Guys! Today I’m coming at you with my July and August library haul! I know it’s only July now, but the books I have on hold are the ones I’ll most likely be reading in August (hopefully they arrive in time!).

WHAT I CURRENTLY HAVE OUT FROM THE LIBRARY

One Dark Throne (Three Dark Crowns, #2)booksInto the Drowning Deep (Rolling in the Deep, #1)booksGunslinger GirlbooksNevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle, #1)

ONE DARK THRONE

I have actually started this one. I’m maybe 20ish pages in and so far it’s pretty much the same. Though I can tell this one is going to be a tad more fast paced and that there’s going to be some epic character development, which I’m really excited for!

I think so far I’m going to have to take the book slowly because I’m only halfway through chapter 2 and I’ve already had to put the book down because of headaches.

INTO THE DROWNING DEEP

I am so excited about this book but holy cr*p it’s so long! It’s almost 500 pages long and it’s meant to be sort of like a horror set in the ocean and honestly, that sounds fantastic. Especially, because it’s written by Seanan Mcguire (she uses her pen name for this one).

GUNSLINGER GIRL

I have no interest in westerns. at. all.

But, everyone in my Screen Analysis class is snotty and seems to be obsessed with westerns so I’m feeling peer pressured by evil people.

So, I figured I’d go with a book set in the same genre published by the same imprint responsible for Stalking Jack The Ripper (pls read it I LOVE).

If you guys know any good westerns (films, tv) that you could recommend, I’d really appreciate it!

NEVERNIGHT

I tried to listen to the audiobook for this a few years ago and because of the footnotes, it made absolutely zero sense. So, I’m really excited to read this in physical form especially since everyone seems to love it so much. If you want to be convinced to read this book just go watch a Piera Forde video.

WHAT I CURRENTLY HAVE ON *HOLD

*A hold is when you request something (book movie, cd, etc.) to be delivered to your local library so you can pick it up

Gone Rogue (Wires and Nerve, #2)booksHawkeye: Kate Bishop, Vol. 1: Anchor PointsbooksTank Girl (Tank Girl, #1)booksSpace Opera

WIRES & NERVE VOL 2

I read volume 1 of this a few months ago and really loved it so I immediately put it on hold and it still hasn’t come to my library yet! I think there’s only two graphic novels in this series but I really love the artwork (and characters, duh) so for once, I don’t think I would be sad a=about a series being a bit long.

HAWKEYE: KATE BISHOP VOL 1

I know basically nothing about this series but I know that I love Kate Bishop as a character and she’s a badass and I think I’m already in love with her???

TANK GIRL VOL 1

I love a badass lady and I love good artwork so I have high hopes for this. I really hope I love this as much as everyone else seems to!

SPACE OPERA

This book is literally Space Opera so what’s not to love? I’ve heard this is basically Eurovision in space and that thought excites me probably WAY too much.

Just read this and love it:

This year, though, humankind has discovered the enormous universe. And while they expected to discover a grand drama of diplomacy, gunships, wormholes, and stoic councils of aliens, they have instead found glitter, lipstick and electric guitars. Mankind will not get to fight for its destiny – they must sing.

MY LIBRARY HAUL | MAY + JUNE 2018

Hey guys, today I am trying out something new! I know I keep saying that, but I have honestly never written one of these posts before. I read mostly from the library (physically or BorrowBox/OverDrive) and go there once or twice a week, I am literally on a first name basis with some of the librarians. Anyway, so I am thinking about doing some library hauls every couple of months so I can keep you guys on top of what I’m reading and so I can also show my support for libraries!

UPDATE: I wrote this in the middle of May so I might have read a few of these already.

Let me know if you’ve read any of these books and which book I should read next!

WHAT I CURRENTLY HAVE OUT FROM THE LIBRARY

a booksThe Wicked Cometh   Warcross (Warcross, #1)   Before the Devil Breaks You (The Diviners, #3)   Little Girl Gone (An Afton Tangler Thriller #1)

THE WICKED COMETH

I read this in early May and I really thought I would love it. And I did for the first hundred pages but the rest of the book was a bit of a let down for me. I thought this was going to a really fun and interesting historical mystery that I would be gushing about for days. But, unfortunately, it just wasn’t for me. I think that if you are a fan of the scenery and general vibe of Jane Eyre or Persuasion you might enjoy this and if you like a mystery with a prominent love story this will be for you. I wish I would have loved this more but, unfortunately, there was too much romance and not enough actual mystery for me.

WARCROSS

As I am writing this I am 100 pages in and so far I am really enjoying it! I’ve only read Batman by the same author and I am really enjoying her writing style! I should have finished it by the time this post goes on if everything goes to plan!

BEFORE THE DEVIL BREAKS YOU

As I am writing this post I am roughly halfway through the book. I’ve been reading roughly 100 pages a day so I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to return the book next week. So far this is really good and I am really enjoying it. This is a really character based series, so if you like books that focus more on the characters you should check out this series!

LITTLE GONE GIRL

I picked this up from the library on a whim and I think I’ll give it a shot. It’s got really good ratings on Goodreads so I’m excited to get into a new Mystery Thriller!

WHAT I CURRENTLY HAVE ON *HOLD

*A hold is  when you request something (book movie, cd, etc.) to be delivered to your local library so you can pick it up

booksThe Song of Achilles   Three Dark Crowns (Three Dark Crowns #1)   The Hate U Give   The Loneliest Girl in the Universe   Bad Romance

THE SONG OF ACHILLES

I recently wrote a blog post about some of the popular YA books I still haven’t read and TSOA was on the list. My comments blew up and pretty much everyone told me that I have to pick it up asap, so I put it on hold straight away after seeing everyone’s positive reaction to the book!

THREE DARK CROWNS

This was also on my list and it also got a pretty positive reaction so I figured why not put it on hold at the same time? I’m sure I will pick it up soon after I finish Little Gone Girl! It feels like forever since I read a YA fantasy so I’m excited to get back into the genre!

THE HATE U GIVE

Yes, I know. Shame me, please. It came to my attention recently that I have somehow managed to not pick this up yet. I’ve just never had the chance, I’m trying to limit the number of books I buy and I have never seen at my library, so I just decided t bite the bullet and put on hold at my library!

THE LONELIEST GIRL IN THE UNIVERSE

This title is depressing and the premise is depressing and I am so excited. It’s basically Passengers but with a twist I guess? Actually, scratch that. What am I talking about? I haven’t even seen Passengers. *coughs* It’s what I imagine Passengers with a twist would be… I did a bad job of explaining that but, you should click on the cover and check out the blurb yourself!

BAD ROMANCE

I have recently found out that I really enjoy dark contemporary stories. I recently read and loved The Nowhere Girls & The Female of The Species. They are both pretty dark with some intense subject matter, much like this book and I’ve heard amazing things about Bad Romance so I figured I would give it a go!
