My Smashing September Book Haul!

Hello everyone!

Today, I’m planning to share all of the books I’ve amassed since my book haul this time last month. (Which is actually quite restrained for me ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ)

Let’s get started!

READ

So far this month, I’ve read a couple of the books I recieved, which I won’t say much about as I’ll be reviewing them at the end of September. They are;

Going Viral by Amy Alward (recieved in a giveaway from Toppsta)- this is the third and final book in the fantastic Potion Diaries series, and I thought it was the best by far! 

The Great Chocoplot by Chris Callaghan- While a world without chocolate is one of my worst nightmares, it makes for a fabulous middle grade adventure novel!

Defender of the Realm, and Dark Age (not pictured) by Nick Ostler and Mark Huckerby- I chose Defender of the Realm as one of my bookish rewards for doing so well in my exams (along with a few others) and enjoyed it so much I bought the sequel before I even finished it. I’ve now read it too, and I have no idea how I’m going to wait almost a year for the next book ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

BOUGHT

Next up, the books I bought. 

I recieved a couple of others for my exam results (Lorali, which I wanted to read because I LOVE mermaids and Following Ophelia, which sounds fascinating and also becuase Sophia Bennett’s last book Love Song was an absolute favourite last year).

I also bought a few for myself; Knights of the Borrowed Dark by Dave Rudden (just after reading Defender of the Realm, as I’m sure I’ve seen this compared to that), Hole in the Middle by Kendra Fortmeyer (the 1st chapter of this is utterly hilarious, and as soon as I read the extract I HAD to have it), Stunt Double by Tamsin Cooke (I’ve been meaning to get this for ages, I absolutely loved the blog tour for this and the book sounds right up my alley. Isn’t in the photo as one it’s in won’t upload ๐Ÿ˜”) and The Boy With One Name by JR Wallis, which I treated myself to on a trip to Tesco as it just soumds the sort of thing I’ll really enjoy. 

LIBRARY 

I’ve only taken one book out of the library this month so far ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ, but it looks superb. I loved Divided City and Ghost Soldier, so I’m hoping I’ll feel the same way about the Rasputin Dagger, especially as I find the take of Rasputin REALLY interesting. 
RECEIVED

Finally, the books I’ve been lucky enough to recieve, whether from giveaways or from publishers to review. I was sent The Miseducation of Cameron Post, Spy Toys: Out of Control, The Mystery of Me, and last but not least, Worry Angels (which I’ve already sped through, and it was super lovely) from their respective publishers. I’m looking forward to reading the others too, as they all sound phenomenal in really different ways!

The wonderful Georgina from Toppsta sent me a couple of extras with Going Viral (The Epic Crush of Genie Lo, and Here be Witches, which both sound UTTERLY brilliant.) I also won a proof copy of A Shiver of Snow and Sky from Scholastic, and it sounds brilliant. 

Thank you so much for reading!

    1. I really like Potion Diaries; they’re really fun! I’m hoping to read Cameron Post this week, especially as I’ve just been told one of the characters has the same medical condition my doctors think I have! X
