England Book Haul

England Book Haul.jpg

So, if you hadn’t noticed, I disappeared from the blogosphere again. I’m sorry! It was a combination of being not sure what to blog, being in a reading slump, and I went back to England for a couple weeks. While I was there I obviously bought books, so here they are!

  • Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë – This beautiful book is the Penguin Classics edition and I absolutely adore it! My wonderful best friend bought it for me when we went to the National Portrait Gallery to see the Vogue exhibition.
  • Shakespeare’s Sonnets – This is another buy from the National Portrait Gallery. I just thought it would be useful since I’m going to be studying English Literature.
  • The Priestess of White by Trudi Canavan – This was just a book I randomly picked up and I’m not 100% sure what it’s about. All I know is there’s a girl training to be a priestess and then she somehow becomes one of the god’s most powerful servants (I literally just quoted the blurb).
  • Dark Prophecy by Anthony E. Duiker – I found this in a charity shop and it sounds interesting. I have no idea how to describe it so just click on the title and read the blurb on Goodreads.
  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith – I love Pride and Prejudice so the idea of a parody where the heroine is a badass zombie killer is just something I need in my life.
  • The Lies of Lock Lamora by Scott Lynch – I am so happy I finally got this book! It’s about a man, Locke, and his band of expert thieves and their  struggle against the Gray King who is trying to take over the criminal underworld.
  • The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss – This is a fantasy tale of how a magically gifted young man the most notorious wizard of all time. This book is right up my street.
  • The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury – This is quite similar to Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi as the protagonist’s touch kills people, but this set in more of a medieval fantasy land where religion plays a big role.
  • The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman – All I know about this book is that there’s spies and books and the name is cool.
  • The Revenant: A Novel of Revenge by Michael Punke – I’ve seen the movie trailer for this and it seems incredibly interesting, but I have no clue how to describe it so just click the name of the book to go to Goodreads.
  • A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas – If you know anything about me you know I love Sarah J. Maas and her books, so when I found out I would be in England when her new book came out I was ridiculously happy. And the copy I picked up is actually signed! That means that both the books I have in this series are signed by the author! Eep!
  • The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers – This is what I like to call a proper science fiction book since it’s about a young martian woman wanting to put her past behind her so she gets a job on a construction vessel that’s travelling through space. And there is drama.

Which books look interesting to you? Let me know!

  1. I saw the Revenant in theaters over winter break and it was SO SCARY. Not like a horror film or anything, but man, nature can be CRAZY. I’m really interested to see what you think of the book!

  2. Was you luggage seriously overweight when you came back? hahaha those are so many good books!! When I went to the UK the last time, I bought like 5 books and they were really difficult to stow away.

    1. I’m not joking when I say my suitcase was so overweight I had to put ALL of the books into my backpack. I had to lug around over 4kg worth of books and I swear I’m still suffering from it. Why must books be so awkward?!
