May 2021 Book Haul


Hello beautiful people of the internet! I hope you all are doing spectacular and getting the month of June off to a good start. I finally have my May book haul ready to share and I'm so excited about all of these books! I got a total of eight books, with two of them being sent to me and three of them being ones I used a gift card for. I'd say that's a pretty good month! I don't anticipate getting as many in June, but we'll see if that happens! For now, let's just dive into this haul! 

The first book I picked up this month was a signed copy of Realm Breaker by Victoria Aveyard. I had some stuff to do and stopped into Books A Million with a gift card to treat myself for finishing my degree. I spotted a signed copy of RB and just had to pick it up as I've heard nothing but amazing things. Despite owning almost every single one of Victoria's books, I still haven't read any of them though. I do have high hopes for this book but I'm not sure when I'll get around to reading it. I just couldn't pass up the signed edition. 

The next book I got was Not Even Bones by Rebecca Schaeffer. I also got this at Books A Million while I was browsing through the clearance shelves. As this book has been on my wishlist for a while and was only $3, I decided to pick it up with my gift card as well. This has been pitched to me as V.E. Schwab meets Dexter, a show I've enjoyed immensely over the years. That pitch immediately put it on my wishlist and I'm so excited to finally have a copy.

Up next I have my first copy of Illusionary by Zoraida Cordova. This is the sequel to Incendiary, one of my top three books of 2020. This has been one of my most anticipated releases of this year and I'm so excited to finally have my hands on it. Hopefully I'll get around to reading it this summer but, if not, I also have two more copies that I preordered in the UK shipping to my boyfriend's house that I can read once I go abroad this fall. I am so excited to see what happens with these characters and story but also quite sad that this will be the end of the duology. 

The rest of the books I got this month were all Grishaverse books. The first two were the Netflix tie-in editions of Six of Crows and Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. I was sent these by the publisher for a blog tour I did in collaboration with Terminal Tours. The two books were included in a giant PR package full of Grisha that, quite honestly, made my entire month. I've read both of these books as well and hope to do a series comparison this summer!

The last three books I got were the new paperback editions of the Shadow and Bone trilogy. I love these new covers but I wanted to get my hands on ones without the stupid permanent Netflix sticker. It took a few days of searching online but I finally got my hands on a box set for a reasonable price and I'm quite excited. They are the UK editions, so a bit shorter and compact, but that's okay since I primarily got them for the beautiful outside box set covers. 

Thanks for reading!
