Month three is down! This year is speeding by, but as well all know, some truly horrible things are going on right now around the world. I hope you are all safe and taking care of yourselves and others. Please remember to self-isolate or social distance yourself for the immunocompromised (like myself) and the elderly. Stay safe friends.
Onto the books, because don’t they make the best distraction?
Psst, there’s a new little extra thing at the bottom of this post, why don’t you check it out ?
RULES FOR PERFECT MURDER.
ALLEN & UNWIN
Books and Lala was excited for this, so I GOT excited for it too. I read it in 2 days and had a lot of fun with it. my review is HERE.
BANANA FISH VOLUMES 4,5,6,7,8,9,10 & 13.
I’m still nervous as prices are going up and there is no mention of a reprint, so I have volumes 11 & 12 coming right now, and in the near future I think I’m going to try to buy the rest sooner rather than later (14-19)
CARDCAPTOR OMNIBUS VOLUMES 3 & 4
This is the series from my childhood. I was collecting these massive versions as they were gorgeous and alot cheaper in the long run. However, I didn’t realise they were out of print and never rushed to buy volumes 3 & 4….. so I had to buy these second hand. Thank goodness I found a cheap seller because they were averaging 80 USD each !
GIVEN VOLUME 1
Oh my heart. My friend introduced me to this sweet Manga but it hadn’t even released in English yet!! I am SO glad to have my hands on this as it is sweet, and deals with some important topics! I honestly will be picking up every volumes as it comes out if I can.
WE HUNT THE FLAME
Our local sort of target store, the kind that is large and sells everything store? Yeah that, had some books on sale and this was one of them. I remember there being heaps of hype around this one and while I can’t remember what it’s about, the fact that it is a non-european fantasy had me hooked.
Soooooo, for this and the next one, the story is the exact same. I wanted to diversify my reading and I ADORE fantasy, so these were perfect.
SOUL OF THE SWORD
So I traded for the signed arc of the first book, and when I saw they had the sequel for under $5 I knew I needed it. If I don’t like book one, it’s not a big loss, but if I love it? What a score!
QUEEN OF AIR & DARKNESS
This was a ‘oh my god’ it’s so cheap and it’s the same edition as I have for book 1 & 2 situation! To be honest, I brought this when I was in a buying frenzy (which I sadly have like every two months, rip to my bank) and I haven’t eve read Lady Midnight….. oops?
So, I wanted to introduce something new to my hauls for those of you who stick around to the end (Because I love you very much!) So here it is!
THE BOOK I THINK I’LL READ FIRST FROM THIS LIST!
Definitely, BANANA FISH. Simply because it’s the series I own the most in, and I think this will be the series that I start reading once a week as I find that process super soothing.
THE BOOK I HAVE THE HIGHEST EXPECTATIONS FOR?
CARDCAPTOR SAKURA. Simply because I already know I adored the first volume, I have the same expectations for the rest of the series. I don’t know if it’ll be a 5-star rating, but I’m expecting a 4+ rating for these.
So that’s it for my monthly haul!
Are any of these your favourites? or did we haul the same books this month?
