Book Haul: February 2017

I did pretty well this month when it came to book buying. And this can probably be attributed to my reading slump. But I did receive a lot of books this month so let’s get into the haul.


Some of these were preorders and others were just books that I’ve had my eye on for a while. I can’t wait to get into them and hopefully they’ll be able to get me out of my massive reading slump.


I received a few books from publishers this month. Thanks to Pan Macmillan Australia for Windfall, Bloomsbury for The Edge of Everything, Allen & Unwin for Defy the Stars and Hardie Grant Egmont for The Secret Science of Magic. Looking forward to reading and reviewing all of those books. I also received a pile of books from Jeann that I’ll be reviewing on Happy Indulgence at some point. Love, Ghosts & Nose Hair and A Place Like This were from University of Queensland Press. Thanks to Bloomsbury for Letters to the Lost and Walker Books for Wing Jones. Jeann also sent me Before I Fall, which I want to read before I see the movie.

In February I also won a copy of Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology in a giveaway. And I picked up  two books from ‘pay for postage’ sales on the Aussie YA Readers and Bloggers group: We Were on a Break and Love May Fail. I also included the two books that came in the February Fairyloot in this section, even though they were purchased and not received. The box came with Caraval and How to Think Like Sherlock.

    How to Think Like Sherlock sounds really good! I’ve also been looking forward to reading Caraval, although so far I’ve heard a few mixed reviews of it. Anyways, great book haul! 🙂

    Outrun the Moon! I adore that book! 🙂
    I read Starfall but wasn’t a big fan of it unfortunately. I really really hope you love Letters to the Lost as much as I did, Jenna. Happy reading and have a good weekend!

      Yes I know you love Outrun the Moon, Nick! You’re a big reason why I picked it up!!! Damn, disappointed to hear that you didn’t like Starfall. I shall adjust my expectations before jumping into it. I really loved Starflight so I’m hoping I enjoy it just as much.

      Thanks Lauren! I finished History is All You Left Me recently and thought it was great! Eep I still haven’t had a chance to read A Conjuring of Light and Caraval yet… and I’m kind of scared because of the hype but I’m super excited about both of them!

    Great haul! I also got the Fairyloot box! I’m really enjoying their boxes! There’s so much amazing stuff in them! I also got Wires and Nerve and A Conjuring of Light! I just couldn’t resist! There are always so many nice books coming out at the beginning of the year! I hope you’ll enjoy all the books you got! Happy reading!

      The Fairyloot box was so great this month! I loved everything that was in the box and often that’s really rare. So glad you loved it too. I have soooo many new releases that I want to read but so little time. I just need a month off to just read!
