I have to say, I had a pretty good book month with things that I got. I’m happy with it, especially since most of them were books I had read or planned on reading very soon!
Technically, I got this a bit after Christmas, but it took a bit and it got here after the Holiday Haul got posted. I’m loving this series and am in the midst of The Well of Ascension. I can already tell that Sanderson will be on my auto-buy list!
And, here’s what I got from Book of the Month. I loved An Anonymous Girl, so I had to get myself a finished copy of it. Golden State also called to me (and fits with my sci-fi challenge) and The Silent Patient sounded super interesting.
I almost dropped my stack taking that picture. Whoops. But, I got all of these from Book Outlet’s Boxing Day sale. Can’t recommend that company more. I got all of these books for, like, under $50 and I’m super excited to read them all!
I also received some new releases that I preordered!
I got my copy of In an Absent Dream! While I didn’t love the next book in the series when I read an ARC of it, I’m excited for the eventual reread that I’ll do to see if I change my mind!
I also got Song of the Dead! I read an ARC of this and enjoyed it, so I already knew that I’d have to get the second and final book in this duology. A solid series that was fun to read.
A while back, I read an ARC of Vigilance and I finally decided that, yes, I had to own it. So, I got it! I don’t have a nice picture of it, though, so you’ll have to put up with the one from Goodreads!
Lastly, I decided to get Never Die. It just sounded so interesting to me! I got the Kindle edition, so no fancy picture. Either way, I’m excited to read it!
The Wicked King boxes
Now, the book I was most excited for this month was The Wicked King. Didn’t disappoint. But, I did do a couple of preorders for it! One was Owlcrate’s box:
First, the swag. It’s good, but a bit too feminine for me. Tbh, I’m looking to give a bit of it away, so hit up the comments if you want anything. But, that book. Omg, I love the cover. And, even better, it’s signed.
Next, I got something from an Etsy shop. I didn’t take pictures of the swag, but it came with a mirror that’s related to the book and a bookmark. I’m looking to give the mirror a good home, too! But, also, it came with a signed book!
I’m in love.
What did you treat yourself to this month?
