April Book Haul Part 1

Book haul April 2

I have mentioned on a few previous posts that I am waiting to unleash a huge Book Haul but have so far been unable to because I have been waiting on all of them getting here. Finally I can begin the two part haul as all of my books have arrived and they are beautiful, exciting and the perfect accompaniment to my summer. Below I am going to list the books and try not to drag on about them as there are just too many and I don’t want anyone getting bored. Each book will also have a link to goodreads where you can find out a bit more about the book and please feel free to leave a comment if you have read any of them, tell me what you think, if you want to read one of them or if you would like to see one featured in next month’s reviews. I hope you enjoy finding out about them as much as I did!

The Fault in Our Stars – John Green

untitled (16)

I read The Fault in our Stars back in January and instantly fell in love with John Green. I downloaded the book on my kindle but wanted a copy in paperback so I ordered the John Green collection with all the lovely books listed below so I could enjoy some more of this talented man’s writing abilities.

Will Grayson Will Grayson – John Green

Looking for Alaska – John Green

Cinder – Marissa Meyer

As soon as the third book was released, I realised I needed to get round to ordering this book. It was a member of my wish list for so long and with the whole series being based on my favourite tales from my childhood I needed to add the first book at least to my book collection. Really looking forward to reading it as it has nothing but great reviews and therefore I have high expectations for it.

The Selection – Kiera Cass

10507293

This book continually appears in lists of YA on goodreads and is a contender amongst the booktubers. From what I have read about the book it seems to challenge the usual on page romance as the female character is torn between two love interests. A book that will no doubt satisfy my love of YA and chick-lit and also give me the break I need from dystopian reads, that is if I can drag myself away.

Rift – Andrea Cremer

15701998

This book was a necessity as I bought the second book last month without realising it was part of a series. It would feel wrong to read the second book without having known the plot from the first book. Despite this being something I would do without realising, I was determined for it not to happen with this series. It sounds interesting but intricate and the first book will at least set the scene.

Under the Never Sky – Veronica Rossi

11594257

Definitely a renowned series in the reading community and from the hype of the third book I was led to Under the Never Sky. It sounds so exciting, fast paced and unusual. It seems to tick all the boxes that are interesting me at the minute, dystopian, romance and unique so this will probably be one of my next choices to read.

Eleanor and Park – Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor-Park-Book

The booktube community led me to this one with so many saying it brought them to tears because the romance was so beautiful. Due to this I am determined not to bring this one on holiday with me because nobody likes a poolside sobber. With this in mind I have to read this over the summer and find out for myself if it worth all of the attention. I couldn’t decide whether to get this or Fangirl to experience my first Rainbow Rowell novel but for some reason I was drawn to this little bit of romance first. Don’t worry Fangirl is set aside for my next haul!

The Windsinger – William Nicholson

120544-px310-227845

For reasons I cannot explain I have been really enjoying my trilogies over the past few months, it’s nice to have a plot that expands past one book and I suppose I enjoy having a story that lasts longer than a few days. I took to goodreads, booktube and a few blogs to find myself being swayed by this series. I am really looking forward to reading this and hope the reviews were right about it.

Slaves of the Mastery – William Nicholson

120545-ml-41752

Firesong – William Nicholson

9781864719666

The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants –Ann Brashares

452306

I know I am behind on most of the books that are popular at the minute but I am proud to say I have read the Sisterhood. The reason I added this book to my haul was because I own the last three but not the first one. I originally read it from a library copy then bought the next in the series but never got round to buying the first one. It was definitely needed to finish the collection and has even encouraged me to read the series again this summer.

Burial Rites – Hannah Kent

17333319

I spotted this book as an advert on goodreads and after seeing the blurb I really wanted to read it. It sounds so exciting and I have never came across a book set in Iceland. I also haven’t read a murder mystery in so long and it has left me longing for that feeling of suspense once again. I can’t wait to read this book.

Part 2 of April’s Book Haul will be up tomorrow so keep checking back!
