March book haul

So I may have bought a few more books this month than I was originally planning on. But in my defence, I have already read three of the books I hauled this month! So the TBR pile didn’t get that much bigger.

reddit gifts

These first three books I received as a mystery gift as part of my participation in Reddit Gifts. The point of Reddit Gifts is that you get matched with another participant, you buy a gift for them, and you receive a gift from another mystery participant. You don’t know who it is unless they reveal themselves to you.

I absolutely adore Reddit Gifts and participate in both the Books exchange and the Secret Santa in December.

As you can see, my Books Santa got my interests spot on. I have already read and reviewed The One Memory of Flora Banks!

This absolutely gorgeous edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was also part of my Reddit Gift. I didn’t own my House version yet, and somehow my Books Santa figured out my House and sent this to me!

I really lucked out this time!

acowar and almost midnight

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas and Almost Midnight by Rainbow Rowell, both bought from Wordery.com.

I finished the first two books in the ACOTAR series during the Series Crackdown Readathon, so I had to buy the third instalment. Unfortunately my local book shop didn’t stock this book in hardcover, so I had to buy online.

Almost Midnight is the collection of both short stories by Rainbow Rowell as featured in My True Love Gave To Me and World Book Day. I already own both My True Love Gave To Me and the World Book Day edition, but thought this little collection was so gorgeous (look at it!!) so I had to get my hands on that one as well. I will never feel bad for buying a Rainbow Rowell book.

thebelles scythe

I purchased both Scythe and The Belles from my local Waterstones, and I’m so glad I did. I have already read and reviewed both these books (here and here) and they have both already made it onto my list of 2018 favourites.

the hate u give

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, another book purchased from Waterstones, and it’s a Waterstones exclusive edition. Look how pretty! I love books that have coloured pages, and the yellow and black looks so incredible together.

I am currently reading this book and am thoroughly enjoying it, although it’s taking me some time to get through.

milk and honey

I bought this collection of poems on a whim on a day that I was ‘definitely not going to buy another book’. I have heard so much about this, both positive and very negative reviews, and had to find out for myself. I am about halfway through this, so watch out for my review coming soon!

And last but not least, I have some Kindle books that I hauled this month. I bought Friend Request by Laura Marshall when I was stuck in a hotel because my Eurostar was late coming back to London and I couldn’t get another train to Brighton. That was a not-so great night for me, so I wanted something good to read. Friend Request was advertised as the most addictive thriller of 2018, so I thought it would do the trick. I’m just over halfway through and let me tell you, it’s not.

I also received the following e-ARCs for review:

  • The Weight of a Thousand Feathers by Brian Conaghan (Bloomsbury) – publication date June 14, 2018.
  • Ignite the Stars by Maura Milan (Albert Whitman & Company) – publication date September 4, 2018.
  • Chemistry Lessons by Meredith Goldstein (HMH Books for Young Readers) – publication date June 19, 2018.

And that’s it! That’s my haul for March. I think I showed quite a lot of restraint this month!

let's chat

What books did you buy or receive this March? Any of the same books I did?

Which book do you think I should read next?
