it’s BOOK HAUL TIME! (yes i’ve given up on numbering them)

Keeping track and predicting my book hauls should be an Olympic sport. Seriously, there’s no rhyme or reason to it and I always have to check the last one I did to check which books I mentioned. So um, let’s just get on with it shall we?

physical books

This is already so impossibly chaotic guys we’re off to a great start. Anyways, I got a book from the Summer Reading program at the library but I unfortunately can’t remember the name well enough for the Goodreads search engine. I remember the cover, but uh…not the name. And it’s packed up into a moving box at the time of writing. Let’s take a moment of silence for The Book That Shall Not Be Named.

I’m very grateful to have received a physical arc of Once Upon A Broken Heart for my stop on the blog tour! In addition, because I have no willpower, I also ordered the Owlcrate edition which is absolutely lovely.


A Far Wilder Magic by Allison Saft | I just finished this one and absolutely adored it. It’s a combination of beautiful autumn atmosphere, a magical fox-hunt, alchemy, and a seaside village. I CAN’T WAIT TO TALK ABOUT IT!

Anatomy: A Love Story by Dana Schwartz | The summary for this book contains the word gothic. What else do you need to know? Just in case you want a bit more information (but why would you) this follows a female surgeon, a resurrection man, and romance. Yes, it follows romance. Don’t question my summaries.

These Deadly Games by Diana Urban | As someone who didn’t quite love but was surprisingly obsessed with the author’s debut, of course I wanted to check out her next book! From what I can tell, the main character’s sister gets kidnapped and in order to save her, the main character has to do a bunch of tasks. Only problem? Those tasks aren’t as harmless as they seem.

League of Liars by Astrid Scholte | This is a fantasy thriller following four teens jailed for illegal use of magic. So of course, what is left to do but break out of said jail? I was so intrigued by Scholte’s debut Four Dead Queens but never got around to actually reading it. So I have no idea what to expect going into this but I’m excited!

Hotel Magnifique by Emily J. Taylor | I’m kinda trash for certain tropes. And I know that because all I read about this book was that it was “Caraval meets The Night Circus” in a hotel with dark secrets and I instantly requested it. I don’t know what to expect but I’m SO EXCITED ANYWAYS!

Cinder and Glass by Melissa De La Cruz | I’m in the mood for a Cinderella retelling, and this one sounds amazing. This apparently involves the prince’s younger brother in addition to the prince. Look, I like to go into these retellings as blind as possible but now I see that this hurting my summary skills*.

*not that there were ever much of those in the first place

And a huge thank you to all the publishers for giving me an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review!

So that’s it! Somehow I ended up with six NetGalley titles? Please send help? I’m hoping I give 5 stars to all of them though! Tell me: are you excited for any of these? Have you read them?
