May Book Haul
With the horror of exams looming I appear to have used book buying as a coping mechanism...
Going from top to bottom this month I have acquired...
1. Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin. (Proof- due November 2015)
Based around the idea that Hitler won WW2 and now a young girl, Yael, has been tasked to kill him. With her superpowers of course.
2. Silence is Goldfish by Annabel Pitcher. (Proof- October 2015)
Tess has a voice but it isn't hers. She only says things to fit in.
3. The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead.
Book five in the Bloodlines series - a spin off from Vampire Academy. (I haven't read the back 'cause spoilers)
4. Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead
Book four in the Bloodlines series - a spin off from Vampire Academy. (Again, spoilers)
5. Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
Ah, Will. You gorgeous human.
6. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
The first novel in Maas' new series! Ahhhhhh. Essentially retelling a beauty and the beast... OMG. FAIRYTALES IN THE STYLE OF SARAH J. MAAS?
7. Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari.
Essentially showing the progression of humans from Neanderthal ages to now in various areas of society.
8. Arise by Tara Hudson
The Hereafter series' second novel. Not entirely sure if I've read the first so I'm avoiding the back of this just in case!
9. Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
Third book in the Graceling trilogy. Princess Bitterblue after finally leaving the castle in disguise has seen the legacy her father has left behind and is now determined to stop it.
So what books have you bought this month?
