August Book Haul!

I bought and received 28 books this month, a few I got from trading over on Twitter using #booksfortradeuk, most of them I bought and the rest are ones I won and to review!

If you have read any of these, let me know what you think! You can find me on Instagram and Twitter.

Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor: I got this book via a trade over on Twitter so this is actually my second copy of the book as I wanted to deface one and didn’t want it to go wrong! – I haven’t actually read this book yet though I am on chapter 2!
Nyxia by Scott Reintgen and Song of the Current by Sarah Tolcser: two arcs that I got also via a trade over on Twitter – I’m so excited to start reading both of these books soon!





The Waking Land by Callie Bates: I got this on Twitter using books for trade, I own this as a full cover but I just love the arc cover, it is absolutely beautiful!
Deep Blue by Jennifer Donnelly: My last trade book that I got in August, I haven’t read this yet but I now own the first three books in the series!






Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge: Another trade on twitter.
Brisingr by Christopher Paolini: I got this in a charity shop near me, I own the first two, I haven’t read them yet but really wanted to read this series and to get them in hardback is cheap at the store!







Destined, Hunted, Burned by P.C and Kristin Cast: I have already read this series and I love it so much, just I have some in paperback and some in hardcover that I wanted to replace them but annoyingly Hunted came as a US version but I’m not too fussed for now.


History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera, The Potion Diaries: Royal Tour by Amy Award, A Change is Gonna Come by Various Authors, I got these from WHSmith where they were doing a 3 for 2 on all children’s and teen fiction books and I saw these and had to get them!



House of Furies by Madeleine Roux: I saw this in Waterstones and just HAD to get it, I loved Asylum which I need to finish the last book so I’m excited to read her next book!






Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett: I won this via a book website, it sounds amazing and I can’t wait to get stuck into it!



The Changeling’s Journey by Christine Spoors, Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken, Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare, I ordered these from Amazon, I heard so much about The Changeling’s Journey so I’m excited to get around to it, I order Wayfarer because it was cheap and now I can binge read the duology, and I needed the new covers of TID series so I could reread the Shadowhunter world!





The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee Carter: The third book in the Goddess Test trilogy (I believe), I read the second book a while ago but was waiting for the price of this one to go down a bit before I bought it.





In The After Light by Alexandra Bracken, I got this at the beginning of the month, I finally managed to get the entire series in hardcover, hoping to finish the series soon!




Loved by P.C and Kristin Cast: Another book to go with the House of Night series! It continues on a year after the last book so I need to read this soon!





Royal Bastards by Andrew Shvarts, I’ve been so hyped for this ever since I found out about the book!


The Bone Season and The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon: I got both of these in hardcover for less than £6 over at Better World Books – they have fantastic bargins on their website!








A Semi Definitive List of Worst Nightmares by Krystal SutherlandI got this as a review copy via Readers First – the link to my review is added!
Aaru by David Meredith, I got an email asking if I could review this book, it sounded good and had good reviews on Goodreads so I was more than happy to give this book a try!







Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency Series by Iain Reading: After I had reviewed the first book in this series, I was offered the next two books to also read so I’m incredibly grateful and excited to continue this series!
