December Book Haul
Until I got them all together I didn't realise how books I had acquired this month. Oh my. Oh dear. My poor TBR pile/shelf/mountain...
1. Echo Boy by Matt Haig
I've been eyeing this up for ages and never picked it up.
In this world there are AI's called Echos. Daniel is one of these Echos and has started to develop feelings towards a girl called Audrey that he was never programmed to have. It sounds so interesting and reminds me of the programme Humans.
2. The Gospel of Loki by Joanne M. Harris.
This is simply a retelling of Loki's attempt to destroy Asgard but with me being a lover of all mythologies I couldn't not pick it up!
3. Legend Trilogy by Marie Lu.
June is seeking her brothers killer whilst on the run. Day, whilst also on the run meets June. Neither know anything about one another past. But Day murdered June's brother.
4. Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch.
In all honesty I haven't the foggiest about this one. I saw that Pierce Brown, my new favourite author, had read it and I had a "I MUST HAVE IT" moment. But I'm getting an epic fantasy feel from it with the mention of swords and thieves.
5. Night Clock by Paul Meloy.
Mental illness mixed with fantasy. Sounds intense but amazing. Phil cannot understand why his patients are killing themselves but when he meets Daniel the war that rages on for the minds of humanity is revealed.
6. Cress By Marissa Meyer.
The third book of the Lunar Chronicles that focuses on Rapunzel's retelling.
7. Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness.
When you can hear everyones thoughts and they can hear yours there are no secrets. No privacy. Then one month before his birthday Todd discovers a place of absolute silence. Is should be impossible.
8. Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes.
Three Kingdoms at war. A princess, a sorceress and a rebel must each chose a side.
9. Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan.
Percy doesn't know it but he's the son of Poseidon and destined to attend Camp Half-Blood. A training facility for Demi-Gods. When he finds out all hell breaks loose.
10. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.
Kvothe has done all that is possible in his life. He has been there, done that and bought the T-Shirt. In Name of the Wind he recounts all of the events of his youth.
11. Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder.
Yelena had a choice. Death or become the Commander of Ixia's food taster and risk assassination from poison daily.
Those are all the books I have acquired in December. This month I won't be doing a wrap up only because I have reviews planned for all the books I've read so it'd simply be me repeating my fangirling.
Hope you all had a lovely Christmas/any holiday you celebrate.
