It’s been a really long time since my last book haul, just one of the reasons why I’m surprised by the reasonable size of this one. Book buying is one of my habits that’s unlikely to slow down anytime soon. Have I finished the books from my last haul post? Nope! I can’t resist cheap books, okay?! Don’t judge me.
Without further ado, THE BOOKS:
A Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett
This is the second book in the Tiffany Aching arc of the Discworld series, one that I’m especially interested in because it’s about a young witch coming into her powers. Yay! Plus it cost me $0.25.
The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. LeGuin
I’ve actually already read this one and thought it was amazing, but I wanted a copy for my personal library. Easier to push books on my guy if they’re already lying around, you know?
Glamour in Glass and Without a Summer by Mary Robinette Kowal
I’ve been wanting to read Kowal’s Glamourist Histories series ever since I came across her Hugo winning novelette The Lady Astronaut of Mars. I found books two and three for super cheap on BookOutlet so I went for it, despite not owning the first book. I guess I’ll just add it to my list!
Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson
Another BookOutlet purchase, and it’s another sequel in a series where I don’t own the first volume. But guys…it was $8.00. THAT’S CRAZY! Couldn’t say no to that price, especially given how much it’s going for at major retailers.
Hexed by Kevin Hearne
I read Hounded earlier this year and I really liked it, so when I saw this (admittedly beat-up) copy of Hexed at a thrift shop I snatched it up. This is a UF series that I’ve been wanting to sink my teeth into, so here goes!
Sorcery & Cecilia or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot by Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer
Patricia C. Wrede might sound familiar to some of you – she’s the author of Dealing with Dragons, the amazing little book about a spunky princess and a her magical friends. I love that book and I’m a big fan of this series, so when I saw it at my annual library fundraiser I grabbed it. Now I just need the second and third books and I’ve got a full set.
Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger
This is a bargain book on Amazon.ca, just FYI. I’ve read and loved Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series and I’ve been wanting to read her YA books for ages. Serendipity, I say.
Crown of Midnight and Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas
Really…do I need to say anything about these books? I want to read these really soon so that I can be all caught up – everyone has been flailing over these books and I want to join ’em! This series is giving me a serious case of FOMO.
Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison
I know, yet another UF series that I’m behind on. I really missed the memo on The Hollows series – now that it’s finished I’ve decided to dive in. Already finished Dead Witch Walking, so keep an eye out for that review later this week!
Grave Dance by Kalayna Price
Yet another title that’s second in a series where I don’t own any of the other books. But you’ll understand when I tell you what it’s about: a witch who has to navigate between the Fae and Death himself. Um, HELL YES.
Feed and Deadline by Mira Grant
For those of you who don’t already know, Mira Grant is a pseudonym for Seanan McGuire, one of my new favourite authors. I read Feed years ago – way before I got into blogging – and absolutely loved it, but for some reason I never continued with the series. I got these suckers for $1 each at the library fundraiser I mentioned earlier.
