My Spring Book Haul!

I've been buying a lot of books this year, you can see the books I got over Winter here, and I'm not reading as much as usual. I'm just bringing more and more in! I need to do some more unhauling or I'll end up living in a house made only out of books and I live in England, it rains a lot! Books are not good sheltering material. They are fun though, so here's what I've been buying.

I picked up Planetfall by Emma Newman* at the Gollancz blogger event and read it in May. I liked it so much, I had to get After Atlas by Emma Newman. There are four books that are all stand-alone books set in the same universe and the synopsis of this actually appeals more than Planetfall; detectives and cults and sci-fi, oh my!

Of course, I had to get The Poison Song by Jen Williams as soon as it came out. I loved the first book in this series (my review/rave is here) and decided soon after that I'd put off reading the second book until the third came out so I could binge it. Now I have this in my grasp, I can finally start.

Over the next couple months, I'm trying to make a conscious effort to read more non-fiction (I have a whole post about that here) so when I saw Queen Bees by Si├ón Evans for £2.99 (now £2.49) on The Book People, it joined my cart immediately. I'm really looking forward to learning more about these society hostesses and their impact on the world.

Jane Seymour, The Haunted Queen and Anna of Kleve, Queen of Secrets by Alison Weir were books that I got proof copies of and, of course, needed the hardcovers to complete my set. I really love this series and they look so so good on my shelf. I'm thinking of doing a re-read of the whole series when the final book comes out, but there are still two queens to go!

Once & Future by Amy Rose Capette & Cori McCarthyYou Asked For Perfect by Laura Silverman and A Good Girls' Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson were all pre-orders I made back in February so they've slowly been trickling in, and I've been reading them! I missed having fresh and exciting YA on my shelves. Expect to see them in upcoming wrap-ups!
