  • Six of Crows 
  • Crooked Kingdom

Author: Leigh Bardugo

Price: $46.95


Synopsis: "Six of Crows takes place in the Amsterdam-inspired city of Ketterdam. The new series takes place in the same world as the Grisha books but is set in a different location and time frame. Six of Crows is set in a world inspired by Tsarist Russia and based on a magical system.

Title: The Hobbit (HB)

Author: J. R. R. Tolkien

Price: $20.10

Where: BookDepository

Synopsis: "Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely travelling further than the pantry of his hobbit-hole in Bag End. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard, Gandalf, and a company of thirteen dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an unexpected journey 'there and back again'..."


Title: The Rose & The Dagger  (The Wrath and the Dawn #2) (HB)

Author: Renee Ahdieh

Price: $23.19

Where: Book Depository


Synopsis: "In a land ruled by a murderous boy-king, each dawn brings heartache to a new family. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, is a monster. Each night he takes a new bride only to have a silk cord wrapped around her throat come morning. When sixteen-year-old Shahrzad's dearest friend falls victim to Khalid, Shahrzad vows vengeance and volunteers to be his next bride. Shahrzad is determined not only to stay alive, but to end the caliph's reign of terror once and for all."


Title: The Rest Of Us Just Live Here (HB)

Author: Patrick Ness

Price: $7.99

Where: QBD


Synopsis: "What if you weren't the Chosen One? The one who's supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death? What if you were like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again."

I honestly bought this; one because of the cover/sprayed pages (so pretty) and two for a hardback it is really really cheap. 


Title: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and Library of Souls (Book 1 and Book 3) (PB) 

Author: Ransom Riggs

Price: $12 per book

Where: Big W


Synopsis: "A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs."

The didn't have Hollow City so you can expect to see it in a future haul. I'm not good with scary stories so I am hoping this won't be too scary. I've watched the movie and it didn't seem to bad. So finger's crossed.


Title: The Amber Spyglass (His Dark Materials #3) (PB)

Author: Philip Pullman

Price: $3.99

Where: Savers


Synopsis: "In the astonishing finale to the His Dark Materials trilogy, Lyra and Will are in unspeakable danger. With help from Iorek Byrnison the armored bear and two tiny Gallivespian spies, they must journey to a dank and gray-lit world where no living soul has ever gone."

I read this series when I was in high school but I'd really like to re-read the series. Hopefully I can find the rest of the series with matching covers.


Title: The Cursed Ones (Crusade #1) (PB)

Author: Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguié

Price: $3.99

Where: Savers



Synopsis: "For the past two years, Jenn has lived and trained at Spain’s Sacred Heart Academy Against the Cursed Ones. She is among the few who have pledged to defend humanity or die trying. But the vampires are gaining power, and the battle has only just begun."

Here is a link to part 1 of my haul. I know that I am buying a lot of books at the moment but I just really want to build my collection. Plus it's nice to have a variety of books to read.


If you have any book suggestions please let me know.
