Giant Book Haul

Hey Guys!

So it has literally been months since I did a book haul. I think my last one was back in October and consequently I have got shit tons of new books to tell you guys about. This haul is a mix of books that I have brought over the last few months and ones that I received for Christmas, plus a couple of books from subscription boxes. So, since this is going to be incredibly long, let’s get to it!


Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson – Christmas Present

The Girl Who Chased The Moon by Sarah Addison Allen – Christmas Present

Hold Me Closer Necromancer by Lish Mcbride – Christmas Present

The Bear And The Nightingale by Katherine Arden – Christmas Present

Flesh And Blood by Simon Cheshire – Christmas Present

The Banished Of Muriwood by Jeff Wheeler – Christmas Present

Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban Illustrated by JK Rowling – Christmas Present

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them Illustrated by JK Rowling – Christmas Present

I am so lucky to always get books for Christmas and I am so excited to read all of these

Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman – WHSmith (3 for 2)

The Subtle Knife by Phillip Pullman – WHSmith (3 for 2)

The Amber Spyglass by Phillip Pullman – WHSmith (3 for 2)

The Book Of Dust by Phillip Pullman – WHSmith (£9)

……as you can see I brought a lot of Pullman’s books lol. I brought Book Of Dust when it came out and decided to finally actually read Northern Lights, I already owned it but I re-brought it in the new cover editions that match BOD as they are super pretty. I have now started the original trilogy and I really enjoyed it so far.

The Huntress, Sea by Sarah Driver – WHSmith (free when I brought Book Of Dust)

The Chritsmasaurus by Tom Fletcher – WHSmith (3 for 2)

Winter Magic by Various – WHSmith (3 for 2)

The Girl Who Saved Christmas by Matt Haig – WHSmith (3 for 2)

The Rest Of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness – WHSmith (3 for 2)

The Keeper Of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan – WHSmith (£3.99)

I feel the need to clarify that these where over several different trips to WHSmiths, over a couple of months. 3 for 2 is too good a deal not to take advantage of…. regularly lol.

Alan The Christmas Donkey by Tracy Garton – WHSmith (£3.99)

Carve The Mark by Veronica Roth – WHSmith (£4.99)

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black – WHSmith (£6.49)

Caraval by Stephanie Garber – WHSmith (£3.99)

Yes, I do already own this, yes, I have already read this, but I own the hardback, this is the paperback and it is just too beautiful not to have. Especially as I got it for half price. It looks so good next to the hardback.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson – WHSmith (£1 (O2 priority))

It’s A Wonderful Life by Julia Williams – WHSmith (£1 (O2 priority))

The Christmas Promises by Sue Moorcraft – WHSmith (£1 (O2 priority))

The Wolf Wilder by Katherine Rundell – Kim’s Books (£2)

Tales Of Beedle The Bard by JK Rowling – Kim’s Books (£3)

City Of Ashes by Cassandra Clare – CRUK Charity Shop (£1.45)

The Art Of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson – Charity Shop (£1)

Ruins And Rising by Leigh Bardugo – Charity Shop (£1.49)

Snowed In by Rachel Hawthorne – Amazon (£2.81)

Secret Santa by Sabrina James – Amazon (£3.77)

Ex-mas by Katie Brian – Amazon (£3.27)

My New Crush Gave To Me by Shani Petroff – Amazon (ebook) (£4.64)

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer – Amazon (£2.80)

New Moon by Stephenie Meyer – Amazon (£2.80)

Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer – Amazon (£3.50)

Towards the end of last year, I started to re-read the whole Twilight sires (at the time I was in need of some comfort reading), and I remembered why I fell in love with this series. I know that it is kind of crap, it isn’t that well written, the characters are kind of flat, it doesn’t have the healthiest relationships and it’s a bit stupid, but damn it, there is something about these books that you can’t help but love. this was at least my 8th read of the series and when reading them I realised how bad of a condition my paperbacks where in (I owed books 1-3 in paperback and 4 in hardback) so I decided that it was about time that I replaced them all with hardbacks. I brought all three second hand and I am so happy that I did. These look so much better on my shelf now.


The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan – Amazon (3 for £10)

The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater – Amazon (3 for £10)

It Only Happens In The Movies by Holly Bourne – Amazon (3 for £10)

City Of Bones Collector’s Edition by Cassandra Clare – Amazon (£7)

Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend – Amazon (£6)

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff – Amazon (£6.29)

The Dream Thieve by Maggie Stiefvater – Amazon (£6.99)

Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater – Amazon (£6.99)

The Selection by Kiera Cass – Amazon (£2.54)

Turtles All The Way Down by John Green – Amazon (£6)

The Midnight Heir by Cassandra Clare – Amazon (£3.50)

I’m not going to lie; this was all in one giant amazon order. My sister has had me on a forced book buying ban from September so that I wouldn’t accidently buy something I was getting for Christmas so I have been unable to purchase a load of books that I really wanted. Especially some next in series books so I decided to just do a giant order straight after Christmas with all the books that I am desperate for and that I have been putting off buying.

Four by Veronica Roth – Amazon (£3.89)

Siege And Storm by Leigh Bardugo – Book Depository (£6.82)

The Mistletoe Murder and Other Stories by P.D.James – Morrison’s (£4)


Artemis by Andy Weir – Illumicrate

And that is my insanely huge book haul….I am a bit ashamed of myself lol. In my defence, most of these are sequels or books that I have wanted for a very long time. I also did a massive unhaul just before Christmas. Plus, I didn’t pay full price for any of these books, so there’s that. What books have you brought recently? Are any of mine on your list? I need to go on a book buying ban. I hope that you have enjoyed todays post and I will see you all again very soon.
