They are here! The main part of what I call my ‘useless old Dutch bank account made useful’ book haul… With a little help of a book fairy called Eva. 😉 ❤ I already shared them on Instagram a few days ago, but I thought I would show my haul on my blog as well as it doesn’t happen often I’m able to get so many books in one go. 😉
So far 16 out of the 20 ordered books have arrived… The four remaining titles are either already on its way as well or still waiting to be (re)published.
This haul also includes my giveaway prize I won on Twitter, hosted by the wonderful @sdavreads back in February. I could pick any 2019 contemporary romance title and I chose a preorder of The Boy Who Steals Houses. ❤
A full list of all 17 books with details below!
1. The Seven Deaths Of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton. This was my 2018 favorite, so of course I had to have a copy for my shelves… I’m hoping to reread it some time in the future! REVIEW HERE
2. The Secret Diary Of Hendrik Groen by Hendrik Groen. I’ve been meaning to get a copy of this one for so long now and I’m definitely looking forward to finally read it.
3. 4. and 5. A Darker Shade Of Magic, A Gathering Of Shadows and A Conjuring Of Light by V.E. Schwab. Schwab is one of my absolute favorite authors so of course I needed to have physical copies of my favorite series written by her… Looking forward to reread the trilogy later this year. REVIEWS OF ADSOM, AGOS and ACOL
6. Twisted by Steve Cavanagh. I’ve been meaning to try his work for ages and even though I have an ARC of Thirteen pending, I might just read this one first…
7. Circe by Madeleine Miller. I absolutely loved The Song Of Achilles and was actually already planning to read this one on my kindle, but I couldn’t resist owning a gorgeous copy of it. Bronze metal shine all over. ❤ I’m hoping to start it in the next two weeks or so…
8. The Craftsman by Sharon Bolton. I’ve been meaning to read more of her work and I’ve heard great things about this story, so I’m excited to be reading this one soon.
9. The Puppet Show by M.W. Craven. Another series I’ve been meaning to get to, and I should probably hurry up to read it since the sequel is coming out soon. xD
10. A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. Another all time favorite I wanted to have on my shelves… I love LOVE Ove and Backman’s writing in general. REVIEW HERE
11. The Boy Who Steals Houses by C.G. Drews. I LOVED her debut and I can’t wait to dive into this story… I probably have to stock up on the tissues first though.
12. – 17. @Orendabooks beauties! All six of these have been recommended to me multiple times and I’m so happy to finally have them on my shelves… I’m still deciding as to which one to pick up first as they all sound fantastic. ❤ From left to right in the *spoiler* Instagram photo that will be uploaded soon: Good Samaritans by Will Carver // Block 46 by Johana Gustawsson // Keeper by Johana Gustawsson // Six Stories by Matt Wesolowski // Changeling by Matt Wesolowski // Palm Beach Finland by Antti Tuomainen
Have you read any of these? Any title I should give priority to?
