Book Haul: June 2016


Whoops. I bought way too many books this month again. Like why do I even bother pretending that I’m going to be good next month? Cos I’m probably not going to be.



I finally did it! I bought the boxset of the new covers of The Infernal Devices. Omg the spines are so beautiful and the gold detailing is stunning. I’m dying! I saw really great review of Underwater so I decided to pick it up too. How it Feels to Fly, A Season for Fireflies and My Lady Jane were preorders that were finally released this month. I bought Something Real, which has been on my wishlist since I read I’ll Meet You There and Exquisite Captive by Heather Demetrios. I bought Girl Against the Universe after Aila @ One Way or an Author raved and raved until I caved. And of course I had to get Sarah Andersen’s collection of comics, Adulthood is a Myth.



I bought the first volume of Lumberjanes because I really enjoyed Nimona by Noelle Stevenson. And when I saw the beautiful hardcover edition of A Tyranny of Petticoats, I just had to have it! It’s an anthology that includes short stories by some of my favourite authors. And from what I hear, the print run has already ended?!



I picked up some exciting stuff from Dymocks this month. When I saw Summer Days & Summer Nights, I had to bring it home with me. It has beautiful yellow sprayed pages โค . I also bought One Would Think the Deep because Jeann @ Happy Indulgence absolutely loves Claire Zorn. The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B was one that I picked up to fulfill a reading challenge but it’s now one of my all-time favourites. I bought Stitching Snow because Aila really enjoyed it and recommended it to me. Finally I found Kissing in America and How to be Bad in the sale section! They were $4 and $5, so I picked them up because I’d been eyeing them for a while.



I requested the Disruption duology from HarperCollins Australia and they were kind enough to send it to me. The new editions are absolutely beautiful (as were the old covers)! I received Sophie Someone and Hold Me Like A Breath unsolicited from Allen & Unwin (on behalf of Hot Key Books and Bloomsbury). Bloomsbury also sent me Burning unsolicited.


Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet and The Improbability of Love were both review copies that I got via NetGalley. I first saw Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet on Cait @ Paper Fury’s blog and it sounded so intriguing that I had to check it out. It was a ‘read now’ on NetGalley. I also saw The Improbability of Love on NetGalley and because it’s been catching my eye every time I walk around Dymocks, I decided to check it out. I didn’t really have any intention of reading Akarnae but it was a free ebook on the Kindle store, so I thought I’d get myself a copy anyway, in case it tickles my fancy one day.

    I’d really like to read ‘How it Feels to Fly’ and I have ‘My Lady Jane’ (which sounds hilarious), so both of those are of interest to me. ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy reading, Jenna!
