Bookhaul: May 2019

This month, thanks to my many visits to a local bookstore with extremely low prices, I snagged quite a few books.

I’ve also been sent a book, which I was so grateful for. This isn’t the typical amount I buy every month, this month has just been really eventful!

Without further ado, let the book haul begin.


Nocturna – Maya Motayne

Set in a Latinx-inspired world, a face-changing thief and a risk-taking prince must team up to defeat a powerful evil they accidentally unleashed.

I picked up Nocturna for a bookclub that I run! I loved this book so much and I have a little review of what I thought here!

Find it on Amazon!


War Storm – Victoria Aveyard

I won’t include a synopsis as this is the last book in the series and it includes spoilers.

I’ve read Red Queen and enjoyed it, so I wanted to complete the series, so, when I have the desire to pick it up I can! I got this in the gorgeous hardcover edition, it was too pretty to get in paperback!

Find it on Amazon!


The Last Hours – Minette Walters

When the Black Death enters England through the port in Dorsetshire in June 1348, no one knows what manner of sickness it is—or how it spreads and kills so quickly. The Church cites God as the cause, and fear grips the people as they come to believe that the plague is a punishment for wickedness.

This was really cheap in my bookstore and I’m a sucker for an England-based historical fiction, so I had to pick it up!

Find it on Amazon!


Sorcery of Thorns – Margaret Rogerson

All sorcerers are evil. Elisabeth has known that as long as she has known anything. Raised as a foundling in one of Austermeer’s Great Libraries, Elisabeth has grown up among the tools of sorcery—magical grimoires that whisper on shelves and rattle beneath iron chains. If provoked, they transform into grotesque monsters of ink and leather.

This book was kindly sent to me by Simon and Schuster, for an honest review which you can find here! (Spoiler free) This was one of my most anticipated reads of the year so I’m happy I got to add it to my collection! This book comes out June 4th (US) and June 13th (UK)

Find it on Amazon!


Fury born – Claire Legrand

The stunningly original, must-read fantasy of 2018 follows two fiercely independent young women, centuries apart, who hold the power to save their world…or doom it.

After the recent release of Kingsbane I really wanted to start The Empirium Trilogy – and then, the hardcover was discounted and I took that as a sign! I can’t wait to jump into this one!

Find it on Amazon!


Kingscage – Victoria Aveyard

Same as last time, I won’t include a synopsis as this is the third book in the series.

As I said in my latter Red Queen excerpt, I wanted to complete this series and this book was heavily discounted – I bought it and Warstorm together to complete the series!

Find it on Amazon!


Ash – James Herbert

David Ash – detective of the paranormal – is sent to the mysterious Comraich Castle, secluded deep in the Scottish countryside, to investigate a strange, high-profile case: a man has been found crucified – in a room that was locked. The reports suggest that the cliff-top castle is being haunted

This was another HEAVILY discounted book – so I got it! It looks super interesting and not something I normally read, but I’m exited either way.

Find it on Amazon!

  1. I’ve aquired way to many books, but I’m stepping out of my fantasy comfort zone in June and looking forward to reading Almost Adults and The Boy and His Dog at the end of the World
