October Book Haul!

Allow me to be giddy as I show you my newest babies. Birthdays are great, you know? :D

MY PRECIOUSSS.


Magnus Chase and The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan: Norse mythology, set in modern-day Boston. Plus, it's Rick Riordan. Need I say more? (You can read my review here)


Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli: this is the most heartwarming book I've ever read. Seriously. It's definitely going on my list of best books I've ever read! Read it, guys, you won't regret it! (You can read my review here)


The Iron Warrior by Julie Kagawa: MY FEELS ARE ALL OVER THE PLACE RIGHT NOW. Because it's the LAST book in the Iron Fey series, like ever. I can't bare it. I can't. If this blog doesn't have any activity for a while, it's going to be because I'm in a huge book hangover over this book.


The Immortal Heights by Sherry Thomas: this is a truly epic fantasy series! I can't wait to read this last book. After that epic war declaration in the last book, I'm super excited to see what happens! Mages, blade wands, London, dragons, blood spells, you name it, this series has it!


I also got Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined by Stephanie Meyer, but I don't physically have it with me at the moment, and thus didn't make it into the picture. (Review and discussion here)


And that's it! What books did you guys get this month? Have you guys read any of these before? (I recommend them all!)

    Looks like a great bunch of books to me. So far I've only read Simon out of this set, but I loved it so ridiculously much.

      I've read the first book of the Chronicles of Nick, but I have yet to pick up the second book! I believe there's quite a few out now, so it seems I have quite the catching up to do...

  11. Let me summarize it, so oblivious to the real world me goes onto ya blog and sees all these Percy Jackson posts and feels so sad and left out because silly me has not read Percy Jackson yet. But then all sad me sees the book haul post and starts screaming "oh oh what did she get?" and then all excited me clicks on the post, reads it and all comes out is "damn!". I am so so jealous, these books are amazing! ;)
