So, I’ve given up on my Mistborn boxset ever arriving. I’m planning on re-ordering it through another company (…if Book Depository ever refunds my money for the order…) so I’ll be excited to bring you photos of that box set eventually. It seems that the fates have aligned to keep me from reading that series!
I do have a couple of new additions to my collection to show off though!
A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan
Fantasy / Historical. This is far and away one of the most stunningly beautiful covers I’ve ever seen for a fantasy novel. In fact, I love the simplistic and focused art style on the covers for the entire series. I only own this one so far, but I would collect them all just because of the covers. Can’t wait to read it soon!
The Liar’s Key by Mark Lawrence
Fantasy / Epic Fantasy. Here’s the thing: I bought and read Prince of Fools probably 2 years ago now, but my local bookstore has never carried the remainder of the series in stock. I happened across this hardcover copy of the sequel at a bookstore I was visiting out of town, and snatched it up immediately. I’m going to have to reacquaint myself with the first book but I’m just so glad to continue building my collection of the series.
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
YA Fantasy. This is an immediate read for me. I’ve been eyeing it for so long! I’ve even put off seeing the movie, even though I really want to, just because I feel obligated to read the book first. I’ll be reading it early next month to kick off my month of October.
Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
Science Fiction Thriller. I posted this image on my instagram earlier tonight and received the biggest and most immediate response I’ve ever had on any of my pics. It appears this book is really beloved by a lot of people I connect with on instagram! The more I hear about it and the more I hear from people that loved it, the more excited I am to give it a go.
So that’s it! Those are all the books I’ve bought or acquired so far this month! Have you read any of these? What did you think of them? Follow me on instagram @bookbastion for future snaps of my books!
Side note – I’m sorry for being sort of absent this week! Normally I’d have posted one review by now, but I actually ended up DNFing a book I was reading this week, and had some personal life things going on that kept me from actually finishing a book during the first half of this week. I’ll fill you all in on the book I didn’t finish and everything else later this week, in my wrap-up post.
