Book Haul

It’s been a while since I posted a haul and I just recently went thrifting and managed to snag a bunch of books for very cheap! I think for all ten of these books I paid under $15 which I think is definitely a steal! I honestly love perusing through thrift stores and op shops and seeing what people have been reading and donating and seeing a title or author that I recognise and jump out at me is just so fulfilling!

Books With Colours in the titles

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is books with colours in the titles. I went through all the books I’ve read over the last year or so and these were the ones that I found!

Books I Enjoyed but rarely talk about

This weeks Top Ten Tuesday prompt is the perfect opportunity to showcase 10 books I really loved but haven’t had a chance to talk about in a while. I find usually I will post a review for a book and then won’t really bring it back up again. I highly recommend all of these books and their series!

5 Fantasy Stand Alones

These are a few of my favourite fantasy stand alones! I think most of these are great if you aren’t an avid fantasy reader, to get you started and to dip your toes into the genre. Fantasy is my absolute favourite and I don’t get around to reading a lot of stand-alones in the genre but what I have read I have loved!

Graceling by Kristin Cashore – I get that there are two more books in this world but I believe they are just companion novels, so I am counting this as a stand-alone. I loved this book. The premise alone I found to be very interesting and I loved how it was executed! Katsa is one of my favourite female protagonists and I loved her arc throughout this story.

To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo – This book surprised me a little bit! I picked it up on a whim and thought it was going to be a little dry (lol) but I actually really enjoyed the storyline. The pace was very well done, I thought the premise was unique and the kind of hate to love romance trope is one of my favourites so I really liked this!

Undead Girl Gang by Lily Anderson – I was highly entertained throughout the course of this book! I loved Mila and her commentary in this book was very witty and kind of snarky which I like in a female protagonists. Overall I think it was her desire to find out the truth and her stop at nothing nature that really captured my attention and ensnared me!

The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw – Dark and atmospheric, I really enjoyed this book as well. The premise I found to be very unique and the twist at the end did really surprise me! I didn’t see it coming and I felt like the execution was very well done.

The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon – Even though this is a fairly new read I had to put it on the list! An epic fantasy book of over 1000 pages I’m sure it is intimidating to the average person. However, I found it to be an incredibly fast engaging read. The world is vast, the characters are diverse and the magic system is unique. Everything I love about fantasy this book really captured!
