December Book Haul | 2017


(I know this is a bit later than usual but I hope you enjoy reading anyway.)

Over the course of December I acquired quite a lot of new books some of which I bought myself, some I got given by family members for Christmas and a couple of books I was lucky enough to get approved to read on NetGalley. I'm also not going to be talking about all of the books I got because I'd be here forever. But I will include a few snippets. So here goes:

Books I got given for Christmas (All of these are books I had on my wish list that my mum or sister chose to get me and are books I am super excited to read):

- Harry Potter: A Journey Through A History of Magic

- Harry Potter: A History of Magic: Book of the Exhibition

- A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

- Daughter of The Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

- Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

I've heard so much about this book and the sequel; 'Hunting Prince Dracula' so I just had to ask for this one. Plus I've been dying to find something different from my usual 'type of books' so I thought this would be a good one to start with.

- The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall

- Morning Star by Pierce Brown

Since I've been meaning to read the Red Rising books by Pierce Brown for a while and already own the first two books I decided to ask my family if they could get it me for Christmas and they did, which I am so thankful for. So now I'm all set to binge read these and get onto Iron Gold.

- The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich

- Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard

- On The Fence by Kasie West

I've already read this and it was such a great contemporary. So cute and light-hearted and just what I was looking for. I'd definitely recommend it for fans of the contemporary young adult genre.

- Uprooted by Naomi Novik

The books I bought myself:

- Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy

- The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed

This is a book I'm very hyped for since I've heard it's a little like Moxie. And I am all for another book like Moxie. That book is fantastic.

- The Witch's Kiss by Katharine Corr

- It Only Happens in the Movies by Holly Bourne

- One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake

I haven't actually read Three Dark Crowns yet but if I enjoy it I know I'll end up wanting to binge read the second one so I picked it up anyway. I know, I have no self control. Don't judge.

- Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

- A Kingdom of Exiles by S.B Nova

Arcs I got sent via NetGalley:

- Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

This is one of my most anticipated books of the year so I literally screamed so flipping much when I saw that my wish had been granted to read this on NetGalley. I am so so so excited to read this soon.

- More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer

This book was so good, and I can't wait to talk about it more closer to the release date. If you loved Letter's To The Lost as much as I did you'll be in for a hell of a surprise because this might be even better!

- Girl Made of Stars by Ashley Herring Blake

As soon as I heard about this book I took off straight to NetGalley to see if it was available to request and it actually was so I was hyped when I got approved to read this book.

- The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert- I already have a review out for this lush, dark and twisty book! Check it out here: https://www.sophieelaina.com/single-post/The-Hazel-Wood

Anyway, yeah I got a lot of books. Let me know if you got any new books in December and which ones you are most hyped for in the comments, I would love to know!

Thanks for reading!
