Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well! Today I’m doing my first book haul of 2021!! I’m pretty excited since I was fortunate enough to get a lot of bookish gift cards for the holidays/my birthday, and I have been able to go to my library recently. Most of the books I’ve received are backlist titles that I still haven’t gotten to read yet, and I can’t wait to start reading all of these books!
Books I Now Own
I would like to put a disclaimer before these books – this is not a normal book haul for me! I was really lucky to get lots of books and gift cards over the holidays, and I usually do not get this many books! Also, the title of each book should link to their Goodreads page.
- You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson – I read this book over the summer and I really enjoyed it. I was able to get a signed copy and I’m really glad I have a copy of this book!
- The Fever King and The Electric Heir by Victoria Lee – I’ve heard amazing things about this duology, but my library doesn’t have copies of them. I was able to get two paperbacks and I can’t wait to start them.
- These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong – I read this in December and absolutely loved it!
- The Silvered Serpents – I finally read The Gilded Wolves in 2020, but my library still doesn’t have a copy of this sequel, so I got a copy for myself.
- How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories by Holly Black – I read the Folk of the Air early last year and thought this new story from the world looked interesting. Plus- it has illustrations!
- Happily Ever Afters by Elise Bryant – My fist preorder of the year! I can’t wait to start this one, which I already talked a little bit about in my most anticipated 2021 releases post.
- A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow by Laura Taylor Namey – This looks so cute!
- You Have a Match by Emma Lord – I can’t wait to dive into this one! It looks so cute!
- Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas – I preordered a signed copy of this and I’m really looking forward to starting it.
- Famous in a Small Town by Emma Mills – I have recently got in to reading Emma Mills book, and this was the one that I found that wasn’t backordered, and I’ve heard great things about it!
- Heartstopper Volume 1 by Alice Oseman – These books look so cute!
Recent Library Books
These are just a few of the books that I’ve checked out of the library recently.
- Lucky Caller by Emma Mills – I finished reading this book about a week ago. I thought it was really cute!
- If You Come Softly by Jacqueline Woodson – I just finished reading this book. It’s a classic and it is such an important story.
- The Poppy War and The Dragon Republic by R. F. Kuang – I’m finally doing it! I have heard so many amazing things about these books and I cannot wait to read them!
- We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal – I’ve wanted to read this for a while, and I finally found it at my library.
- A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir – I’m pretty nervous to read this one, since I didn’t really like some of the other books in series and it has been a while since I’ve read any of them, but I’m hoping it’s good!
Have you gotten any new books/gone to the library lately? What are some books that you got? What are some books that you look forward to getting soon?
