Book Haul #13


This post contains AD- Gifted products.

It’s that time again! Book haul time! I’ve opened up my review slots again AND done a bit of shopping so I’ve got a proper little stack for you all!

Some of these books were sent to me by the publishers in exchange for an honest review. I don’t have to share them with you in this post but I really want to. Gifted books will be clearly marked with a *, as always.

Well, do you want to see them?

Here you go!

As you can see, there’s quite a lot of poetry this time!

1. Seven Devils by Elizabeth May and Laura Lam*. I’m so excited for this new release from Gollancz/ Orion. It sounds like it’s right up my street!

2. Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell. I’ve heard so many amazing things about this book that I’ve borrowed it from my Nana.

3. Stormblood by Jeremy Szal*. This is another one from Gollancz that I was intrigued by when I saw the press release. It’s pretty hefty so it might take me a while but I’m very excited about it!

4. The Witch Doesn’t Burn in This One by Amanda Lovelace. I really love the princess saves herself in the one so I decided to pick up book two in this poetry series.

5. Unmute edited by Kate Clanchy. I’ve already read and reviewed this poetry collection and love it! It’s a very raw and honest look at life in lockdown.

6. All These Bodies and They’re Moving by Juliano Zaffino. I’ve also already read this (review to come soon) and it is magical! This contains one of my new favourite poems and is well worth picking up. I did some work experience with Jay a few years ago so when I saw that he’d published a collection, I knew I had to get it!

7. Anastasia, Look in the Mirror by Carly Brown. This is another poetry collection. I was in the same creative writing group with Carly at St Andrews and I’ve always loved her poetry so I thought it was time that I grabbed her newest collection for myself.

8. A Recipe for Sorcery by Vanessa Kisuule. Like many people, I was really moved by Kisuule’s response to the events in Bristol so I had to pick up one of her collections to try some of her other work. If you haven’t already read Hollow, you really need to.

9. Angel Mage by Garth Nix*. I grew up with Garth Nix’s books so when I was offered a review copy of his newest book, I jumped at the chance!

10. Seven Endless Forests by April Genevieve Tucholke. I loved The Boneless Mercies so I was so excited to read her newest book. It’s also inspired by Arthurian legend, which is right up my street!

11. Game Weavers by Rebecca Zahabi*. This is my current read and I’m really enjoying it! I’m sure I’ll have more to say about it soon!
