Winter Book Haul

Monday, December 26, 2016
It's the end of the year and we alllll know what that means --- Book Outlet saaaaale! Book Outlet ran their 30% off site-wide sale and I went only a little wild. Considering I also ordered several books from the Book Depository, Amazon, and B&N for Black Friday/Cyber Monday -- I've had a very busy month, bookmail-wise.

From the Book Depository bc SEQUEL and NEW COVER:

Shadows on the Moon and Barefoot on the Wind by Zoe Marriott (The Moonlit Lands #1 and #2). Fairy tale retellings mixed with fantasy --- the first is Cinderella and the second is based on Beauty and the Beast.

I have read SotM many times but the release of a sequel and new editions = MUST HAVE.

Aaaand now:

Okay so in that stack:

The Jewel and her Lapidary by Fran Wilde - I have heard so much about her novels; I was super curious to try her writing.

Prince's Gambit by C.S. Pacat (Kings Rising #2) - okay I bought this entirely because of the hype beast. I know friends that flaiiiiil over this so when I saw book two for less than $3, I had to get it. Maybe now I will get going on starting Captive Prince!

The Strangled Queen by Maurice Druon (The Accursed Kings #2)
The Royal Succession by Maurice Druon (The Accursed Kings #4)
I have actually already read The Strangled Queen as an ARC in 2013. Finally my own copy! This is the series that inspired Game of Thrones + covers the Hundred Years' War so you know I am all about it

Maid of Wonder by Jennifer McGowan (Maids of Honor #3) - third in this YA historical fiction series about Elizabeth's maids of honor -- all with different and interesting talents.

Roomies by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando - dual novel about two girls entering college. I love this cover and Sara Zarr is one of my favorite contemporary authors.

The Mirk and Midnight Hour by Jane Nickerson (Strands #2) - a retelling of Tam Lin set against the Civil War.

Flame by Amy Kathleen Ryan (Sky Chasers #3) - So the first book of this seriers, Glow, was the first print ARC I received. The series has finally wrapped and I can't wait to see how Waverly and Co. fare.

Dragonsong by Anne McCaffrey (Harper Hall #1)
Dragonsinger by Anne McCaffrey (Harper Hall #2)
Dragondrums by Anne McCaffrey (Harper Hall #3)
So as a fantasy fan, I have to admit I always feel like a bit of an impostor because... I've never read McCaffrey. I don't know why -- if you know me you know I LOVE DRAGONS so I am not sure what my deal is. Anyway: in 2017,the gap in my education will be closed!

A Daughter of No Nation by A.M. Dellamonica (Hidden Sea Tales #2) - pirates! Adventure! I haven't read the first book but I love these covers and the synopsis! Here's hoping that I love both of them!

The Shadow Queen by Sandra Gulland - 17th century France and the mistress of the Sun King! I am allll about that. Athenais de Montespan is a fascinating historical figure so this should be intriiiiiguing.

Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop (The Others #2) - another hype beast buy. I own the first but haven't read it. However, e v e r y o n e looooves this series. I wasn't the biggest fan of Bishops' Black Jewels series but here's hoping this works better for me.


  1. Dayum! Those Pacat books... I think I really need to read those. And those Marriott covers really are gorgeous. And ugh, that Bishop series has been on my TBR for far too long.

    1. They are everywhere and the color scheme really appeals to me lol. And yes -- Marriott gets such good covers but these are definitely my favorites.
