Holiday Book Haul 2018


We’re back! Sorry for the extra long hiatus, but we’re back now with a lot of scheduled posts and I thought I’d give you a sneak peek of what’s to come with my holiday book haul! I just got back from two lovely weeks in Kefalonia which meant lots of time for relaxing, reading and topping up my non-existant tan! I managed to read 9 books when I was away which is crazy and is a clear sign that I need to get away more often. Anyway, on this holiday I discovered so many new series that I’m desperate to continue now that I’m back and some of my favorites books of the year!

  1. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir – The first thing I did when I got back home was, order the next book in this series (it was only £2 on Amazon!) as the first book left us on such a cliffhanger and perfect set up for the rest of the series! If you haven’t already picked this series up then make it the next book you read, I promise you, you won’t regret it!
  2. The Smoke Thieves by Sally Green – I didn’t love this as much as I thought I would but it was still an enjoyable read! I think age played a huge role in my opinions towards this book and I think its more suited for younger readers. Plus I had just read Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson and I was probably still suffering from a book hangover!
  3. Save the Date by Morgan Matson – I needed a cute and lovely contemporary to read when I was away and I always look for a new Morgan Matson book because I always fall in love with her characters and storylines. This book was no exception.
  4. Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson – Words can’t describe how much I’m in love with this series and characters! Everything about it is perfection and I’ve turned into a little fangirl over it!
  5. The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen – I read the first book in this series last year on holiday and picked up the sequel this year. I’m still really enjoying this series and all the different storylines but I will admit I didn’t love it as much as the first.
  6. To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo – I received this from NetGalley and I didn’t know what to expect! I’m someone who isn’t really a fan of mermaids and sirens, however, I fell utterly in love with this book and its characters! If it’s still up for request then I would highly recommend you give this one a read!
  7. Invictus by Ryan Graudin – Again another book I received off NetGalley (this holiday was a chance to up my shockingly low review score!) and as a huge fan of Graudin I was super excited to get into this! I wasn’t disappointed as so but just that I wanted so much more!
  8. All of This is True by Lygia Day Penaflor –  Another book of NetGalley (seriously my score is that low!) and again another book that I wanted to be so much more. I love the concept behind this book but it didn’t live up to my expectations.
  9. Everless by Sara Holland – Bet you can’t guess where I got this book from? I didn’t expect much from this but I was pleasantly surprised and found this an enjoyable read.
