I probably would have had a book haul of like 3 books to show you this month if only I didn’t have to do a presentation at uni this month. At said presentation, your esteemed leader (AKA myself, **don’t fight it just let it happen**) totally, irrevocably, 1000% tanked. I’m not the best at public speaking but I was trying to hold my shit together for one 10min presentation and although I wasn’t like dying up there I wish I did. It was bad (and embarrassing) AND WE SHALL NOT SPEAK OF IT ANY MORE! But something did come out of this horrible situation! I walked myself straight to Dymocks to help books heal my wounded pride!
So of course I had to get my hands on A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2) by Sarah J Maas the millisecond it was released! In fact cause I preordered it was even shipped a week early! I was also so excited to get my hands on Flamecaster (Shattered Realms #1) by Cinda Williams Chima! I love the Seven Realms series and am buzzing that it’s continuing a generation later! I still need to read the last Seven Realms book which I put off for ages cause I dont want the series to end but then it’s straight into Flamecaster! I got Everland by Wendy Spinale in my May (or was it April?? idrk) Owlcrate and although I’d never heard of it before now I always love a Peter Pan retelling so I’m down!
Now it’s onto the Bad Day Bought Books! I FINALLY picked up Golden Son (Red Rising #2) by Pierce Brown! Only took me like 8 months later then I said I must pick it up! I’m super excited to finally read it! I also got the sequel to Vendetta, Inferno (Blood for Blood #2) by Catherine Doyle! I wasn’t expecting much from this book BUT BOY I WAS WRONG! I just stayed up till 3am last night devouring this book! I need the third now! WHY DO I HAVE TO WAIT A YEAR! I also picked up The Walled City by Ryan Graudin who is the author of Wolf by Wold, which I loved, so I was excited to see if I’m as into her other book as I was with it! Lastly, I picked up The Glittering Court (The Glittering Court #1) by Richelle Mead, I’m both really excited and kind of nervous to read this book! I’ve heard pretty mixed things but at the same time I want it to be Vampire Academy level epic, and I just dont think it can deliver!
