This Christmas, I was so fortunate as to receive so many books that I had been wanting for ages now as well as a Barnes & Noble gift card so that I could get even more. In no way is this bragging, I’m just very excited about all my new reading material and thought I would share what I got with all of you because I know I always love a good book haul.
Whilst opening all of these books on Christmas morning my dad said “well she’ll have enough books to at least get her through the next month.” My family knows me so well.
In the first installment of the Outlander series, we follow Claire Randall who, on her second honeymoon with her husband after the end of the war, is mysteriously transported back several year… to 1743.
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
This is the companion novel to the beloved contemporary Fangirl. In Fangirl, Cath had been writing a popular fan fiction of a best-selling series similar to Harry Potter in our world, but with a couple twists to make it her own.
Red Rising by Pierce Brown
So, I was convinced to buy this book by Booktube and I really know nothing about it. What I do know is that there is a stolen wife, enslaved people, and lots of enemies (and I got all of it from the back of the book).
This book, strongly driven by Russian lore, follows Vasilisa who must defy the wishes of her new step-mother to keep her family safe. And to do so, she must call on the dangerous gifts she always kept concealed.
A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir
As the second novel in the Falling Kingdoms series, I am immensely excited to see where Rhodes takes these characters. So much was lost and so much was rebuilt in the first book, and I believe this book will involve just as much turmoil.
As you can tell, I’m trying to work my way through some series and tie up others. I believe The Wrath and the Dawn is a duology so I cannot wait to finally finish this two-part series.
Imagine revolting against a ruler only to gain no ground against him at every turn (sounds familiar, am I right, America?). Well in Vin’s world, just that has been happening for the last thousand years under the rain of the immortal Lord Ruler who cast the world into ash and mist and misery. But hope has not been lost.
