It is officially the last day of December and the end of 2019, so it’s time for me to share the books I bought/received in the last 31 days!
It’s hard to believe that another year has come to an end, but I have some incredible books that I can’t wait to get to in 2019. Next year is going to be an amazing one for reading, I just know it because there are so many debuts that I am looking forward to and series that I want to complete (as well as books that have been sitting patiently on my shelves).
To kick off the end of the year and month, these are the books I received as Christmas gifts.
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan
Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa
The Dark Vault by V. E. Schwab
I can’t tell you how excited I am to read every single one of these books and the covers all look so amazing! I’ve heard some great things about all of these, especially Girls of Paper and Fire, which I will definitely be reading in January at some point.
I wasn’t planning on buying any books myself this month (apart from a preorder I had on my Kindle) but then I saw there was a Kindle sale and I just couldn’t help myself. All of the books you see below apart from the pre-order cost me just over £5 altogether, which is amazing! The book I pre-ordered was Evermore, which is the sequel to Everless that I read last year.
Circe by Madeline Miller (currently reading)
Caraval by Stephanie Garber
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang
Evermore by Sara Holland
The first four books are all ones that I have been dying to read but just never got the chance to. There was also the fact that some of them were quite expensive, so I’m glad that the sale happened and I can now see what all the hype is about.
Finally, these are the books that I requested on NetGalley!
Enchantee by Gita Trelease
Romanov by Nadine Brandes
Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan
I didn’t actually request Wicked Saints, I was asked if I wanted to participate in the blog tour that will be happening and I obviously said yes! I follow Emily on Twitter and have seen so much about this book that I cannot wait to dive into it at the beginning of the year.
All in all, this was a great month for book buying and receiving, which should keep me going well into the first few months of the year. One of my 2019 goals is to spend less time on social media and more time reading. I keep imaging how many pages or chapters I could read in the 20 or 30 minutes I spend on Twitter.
Let me know what books you bought for the month of December and which ones you are looking forward to the most in 2019!
