Book Haul #45

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted on Tynga's Reviews and Letterbox Love is a UK edition hosted by Narratively Speaking. Here we can share what new books we've picked up this past week. There are also lots of other 'book haul' memes out there for you to choose from!

A much better week this week health-wise along with a short visit to my sister for babysitting duties have got me feeling much better. I was even well enough to go see a gig I had tickets for with Seth Lakeman, Lisbee Stainton & Winter Mountain which was completely amazing! And the fun doesn't stop there, tomorrow I'm off to Bath to see Patrick Ness (again) and Sarah J Maas - more about that next week :) It was a quiet week started off as a quiet week for books, just a couple - very restrained, which descended into an 'I'm sure I didn't order/request these books' week... It was a very exciting week though as Titan have finally re-released the second book in the Blood Wine Sequence, A Dance In Blood Velvet by Freda Warrington. I do have a copy already but it's a very dilapidated paperback copy which will probably fall apart if opened again and up until now you were lucky if you found it used for under $100!


Fearsome Dreamer - Laure Eve

A Dance In Blood Velvet - Freda Warrington

Premeditated - Josin L McQuein

Discount Armageddon - Seanan McGuire

Midnight Blue-Light Special - Seanan McGuire

The Shadow Society - Marie Rutkoski

From Strange Chemistry

Cracked - Eliza Crewe

 From Edelweiss/Netgalley

Dark Duets - ed. Christopher Golden

The Drowned Forest - Kristopher Reisz

  2. Ooooo Dark Duets. I so want this anthology. Nice haul. I also go the Drowned Forest.

  3. I've never heard of A Dance In Blood Velvet or the author before, but if it was costing £100, that could be why!
    And you got Discount Armageddon & Midnight Blue-Light Special! I actually just reviewed MBLS last week, I think those two are some of my favourite of Seanan McGuire's books, I really hope you enjoy them.

  4. Some really nice covers there! I might try Discount Armageddon book though I didn't like the other series I tried by the author.

  5. Best of luck with your books - Discount Armageddon and Dark Duets both look interesting.
