February 2022 Book Haul

February was a really interesting month for book hauling. I was supposed to have quite a few more books for this haul but between shipping delays and carriers losing my packages, I have a more reasonable number (though this sets up March for a big haul). I got seven physical books this month and the majority of them were new or recent releases that I'm very excited about. Let's dive in!

The first book I got this month was the Illumicrate edition of The Ivory Key by Akshaya Raman. This has an alternate cover and sprayed edges. It's overall just stunning. While I do prefer the US cover overall, I much prefer the Illumicrate cover to the regular UK edition. This is a new release I've been looking forward to for a while so I'm thrilled to finally have my hands on a physical edition.

The next book I picked up was the tour edition of House of Sky and Breath by Sarah J. Maas. However, I also picked up the signed Waterstones edition with bonus content and the regular UK hardcover. This is just the start of my multiple editions of this book and I'm thrilled to have them. SJM is one of my favorite authors and I've been looking forward to this book for two years now. At the time of writing this, I've also already finished reading this one and it was phenomenal. Thus begins the wait for the next one...

I finally got my Fairyloot January box this month as well. The book this month was Only a Monster by Vanessa Len. This edition is absolutely gorgeous with special endpapers, signed and stencilled edges, embossing on the book, and is signed by the author. This is a release I've been looking forward to and I'm thrilled to have this gorgeous copy. Also, I don't quite understand why everyone doesn't like it because I'm obsessed with the purple edges. 

Then I picked up a hardcover of Kingdom of Flesh and Fire by Jennifer L. Armentrout as these finally came back in stock in the UK. I've been monitoring this series since I got here and it's been ages since this one was up for sale. I am quite excited to have this in the lead up the fourth book's release in March. I also plan on annotating these copies or spraying the edges myself (or maybe both?). Either way, I'm quite happy to have this one added to my physical shelves finally. Now to get my hands on a copy of A Shadow in the Ember...

Lastly, I got my February Illumicrate book which was A River Enchanted by Rebecca Ross. This edition is gorgeous, though I honestly think I prefer the regular UK cover (don't come for me lol). This cover is gorgeous, but when I look at the original UK one I do prefer that. However, I don't like the US cover at all so any beautiful UK edition is one I'm excited for. Plus, the extra art, edges, etc make this book absolutely stunning to look at. 

Well, those are the seven books I picked up this month. Did you get any exciting books in February? Let me know in the comments below!
