May Book Haul

Hi fellow book lovers!  So it’s almost the end of the month and I thought I would share with all of you the books that I acquired for this month of May. I would say that my haul is a mixture of everything (new and secondhand).  From classics, to young-adult, to contemporary, and other fiction books. I have a total of forty-four books—-the most I’ve had, compared to the other book hauls I previously had. I was definitely very fortunate that I got most of these books for a great discount!
      The Grisha Trilogy

I’ve been wanting to read this series for a long time so I was really lucky when I saw a good deal from Bookoutlet for these three books.

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1) by Leigh Bardugo

Siege and Storm (The Grisha, #2) by Leigh Bardugo

Ruin and Rising (The Grisha, #3) by Leigh Bardugo

 I’m not a huge fan of chick-lit novels but Madeleine Wickham aka  Sophie Kinsella is one of the few authors that can make me read these kinds of books. Her books are hilarious and a great read if you just want something light and funny.

  1. I’m currently reading Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic to the Stars. I love her lighthearted approach and although I have never done any of the things she does, the thoughts have surely passed through my mind. LOL!


    1. HAHA yes I feel the same every time I read a book of hers. Also she’s one of the few authors who will make me laugh almost the entire time while reading her book. She always writes such fun characters.


    1. Thanks! 🙂

      When you’re writing a post you’ll see the different icons and the line that you are asking about is called the horizontal line and it’s next to the “quotes” icon. All you have to do is click on it and it will automatically give you the lines. Hope this helped.


  2. Forty four books! DANG! Such a great haul though, some new titles to check out and some great titles I already know. I need the last book in the Grisha trilogy and then I am set! I like the variety you have there too. 😀

  3. Oh my gosh! This is SUCH a fantastic haul! I absolutely love the Grisha trilogy, though I will say that the second one didn’t do much for me! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Also, the Bone Season is fantastic, and its sequel is even better! 😀
    That Kurt Vonnegut collection looks so beautiful; I can only imagine how stunning the spines look on your shelf! Ah, so pretty! 🙂

    1. Thanks Aimal! 🙂 I’m so excited to read the Grisha trilogy and same goes for The Bone Season.

      And yes I definitely agree with you on the Kurt Vonnegut books. I love the editions that I bought and they definitely look great on my bookshelf. HAHA

        1. For me I think his books are either going to be a hit or miss and maybe not everyone’s cup of tea but I really enjoy his writing. I’ve also heart Cat’s Cradle is good, though I haven’t read it yet. Hopefully you will like Slaughterhouse Five! 🙂
