This is the second part to my May book haul, including all of the books I got from the mother’s day sale on BookOutlet.com! I am just going to jump into it!
WARNING: This haul contains quite a few short stories/collections! I will start with them!
Dangerous Women edited by George R R Martin
I have never read the A Song of Ice and Fire Series or even watched Game of Thrones, but I know Martin is a major author so I trust the authors he chose, and I am excited to read this short story collection.
Ghostly by edited by Audrey Niffenegger
Horror/paranormal literature is my absolute favorite, so I am excited to read this collection. It ranges from modern to very old literature, so it will be a nice perspective.
Great Tales of Horror by H. P. Lovecraft
I have actually never read a book by Lovecraft, so why not just start with a short story collection? He is a mastermind.
The Grownup by Gillian Flynn
I read this at the beginning of the month, and thought it was just ok. I hope it isn’t a true impression of Flynn’s writing.
A World Without Princes (A School for Good and Evil 2) by Soman Chainani
I actually bought this book thinking it was the first, which led me to buy the first on Amazon. Once again, I am stoked to read this and hopefully get a new favorite middle grade series!
Monument 14: Sky on Fire by Emmy Laybourne
Same as above.
Firecracker by David Iserson
This book has a simple, yet gripping plot so I decided, why not get it? It also helped that it was cheap on bookoutlet. I’m excited to read a lesser known book. The cover is also A+.
Queen of Shadows (TOG #4) by Sarah J Maas
I have not read any of the books in this series, only owning the first one. I bought this book because it was a cheap hardcover, so I could not pass it up!
This Song Will save your Life by Leila Sales
I have no clue what this book is about, all I know is one of my best friends loves it so I thought I should at least give it a chance!
Warren the 13th and the All Seeing Eye by Tania Del Rio
This book has some of the most beautiful illustrations I have EVER seen. I am not sure on what the plot is other than it follows Warren, the hotel’s bellhop!
Wildwood by Colin Meloy
This is another book that is big, but I feel like this is going to be REALLY good. I don’t know why, but I have a feeling. I am not even sure on the plot…..
So that is the end of all the books I bought/received in May! Sorry for how short all the descriptions/thoughts were, I was in a rush typing this!
Have you read any of these books? Thoughts?
