December Book Haul

Ah, Christmas. The time where every rectangular present is the chance of another book. This year I was very lucky in the book present department with Santa, family, and friends all realising that my shelves are not filled enough with books and that more is always appreciated. I got quite a few books, some I had been looking forward to reading, a few new surprises which is nice. I shan’t be in need of books to read that is for sure (though honestly, when am I ever?).

More Fool Me by Stephen Fry

22662908

I love Stephen Fry and any chance to keep reading things about him or from him is a good day.

 

Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling

I wanted a replacement set for my originals for a while so I didn’t ruin them with
over use. These I can enjoy and not worry, and a bonus all paperback so
I can save my wrists.

 

Grimm Tales for Young and Old by Philip Pullman

16126208

I have been wanting to read this since I heard about it.
I love everything fairy tales and Pullman so together it’s divine.

 

The Forever Man (W.A.R.P #3) by Eoin Colfer

22518400

As an intense lover of Artemis Fowl, I was open to anything Colfer.
This series didn’t grab me immediately like Fowl, but it’s grown on me.

1234 Facts to Leave You Speechless by John Lloyd, John Mitchinson, James Harkin

27566294

I love trivia and I love QI so this was the ideal combo.
This is their 4th book in this series.

The Third QI Book of General Ignorance by John Loyd and John Mitchinson

26832226

These books are awesome because it proves that everything you
thought you knew is actually wrong.

November Book Haul

I went on a slight buying spree recently. There were new releases out that needed buying, a few series I had to finish collecting. I’m usually quite good in the book buying department. The main contributors to my bookshelves are book sales, writer’s festivals, or gifts. Occasionally¬†books get through that I buy simply because they’re books I have to have.¬†This is the reason seven new books have made their way to my shelves, plus it was fun when each new one arrived in the mail! I have yet to read them but they are all very high on my TBR list the moment I have a chance to enjoy them.

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

Scarlett

13206760

Cress

13206828

Winter

13206900

Fairest

22489107

I have read Cinder and with the release of Winter I felt I needed the collection before continuing my read.
I had been warned to have all books before reading because you will want to pick up the next one immediately.

Welcome to Night Vale by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor

23129410

I love the podcast by these guys so naturally the book was a must have.
If you haven’t heard it you can still read the book no problem.

 

Newt’s Emerald by Garth Nix

24737347

This was very much a “Garth Nix has a new book, I must buy it whatever it is” thing.

 

The Eye of Zoltar by Jasper Fforde

16043857

The Thursday Next series is probably Fforde’s most well known, but the Last Dragonslayer is quite good as well.
This is the third in the series.
