April 2016 Book Haul

Book Haul Header

Last month I said that I was going to be officially on a book buying ban in April. The ban is actually between me and my dad and we have the agreement that gifts, store credit and vouchers are allowed to be used when there is actually a ban on. Well guess who had a lot of store credit! I was also allowed a book spend when student loan came around (woohoo) so it turns out I bought books this month. Ah well!

Nod by Adrian Barnes
I’ve seen a lot about this book around recently and I’m very excited to pick it up in the very near future. Nod is the story of a town that cannot sleep, and all the repercussions that come with not being able to sleep. It follows Paul and his accounts of watching his wife deteriorate through psychosis and death with this disease.

Hard Times by Charles Dickins
I seem to be collecting Charles Dickins novels and not getting around to reading them. Hard Times follows a teacher who learns that having an imagination isn’t as bad as he thought it would be. The idea intrigued me and I’ve had my eye on it for a while, I thought I may as well pick up another classic!

Illuminae by Amin Kaufman
Everyone seems to have read Illuminae. Literally everyone and I’m incredibly late on the band wagon for this. I cannot wait to get in to this sci-fi adventure in space. The story is told in a series of documents and I already know it’s going to be amazing.

Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver
There was a lot of hype around Vanishing Girls in the last year or so online. In all honesty I was not prepared to pay the hardback price for what seemed like a pretty average YA contemporary, but now the paper back has been released I jumped at the chance. The story follows two sisters and the stream of girls that are going missing in their town.

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
Once again this feels like everyone has read this novel but me. The novel follows Etta as she travels through time, and if that isn’t enough to hook you right away I don’t know what is. This is very high up on my TBR pile at the moment.

When We Collided by Emery Lord
I’m not sure where I heard this novels title before but I recognised it when I picked it up. When We Collided is the story of a boy working and caring for his family, his life is pretty mundane. That is until a girl moves in to two and throws colour on to his life. I feel like it will be a nice, summery, contemporary read.

Flick by Abigail Tarttelin
I’ve had my eye on this for a while and I think it’s because it’s the rough, northern setting that is loved very much by everyone in the north of England. The novel is based around Flick’s interpretations of the world, and especially focuses on the new girl in town. However when a person from his past shows up his future is threatened.

Stardust by Neil Gaiman
Recently I’ve been trying to read new genres and things that I wouldn’t usually read. I’ve heard incredible things about Stardust and figured I should pick up a copy while I found it cheap.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Lani Taylor
Daughter of Smoke and Bone follows a young girl who has always managed to keep her two lives balanced and in check. In an unexpected event, she has to choose between her safe life as an art student or the more dangerous one in Elsewhere. I’ve heard so many good things about this series that I couldn’t help but pick up the first book when I found it cheap.

The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle
I’ve heard mixed reviews about The Accident Season, however once I found it pretty cheap I decided to pick myself up a copy because it interested me. The story follows a family who once a year have an ‘accident season’ in which everything and anything can go wrong.

Flawed by Cecelia Ahern
Flawed is Cecelia Ahern’s first YA novel and I cannot be more excited to read it! I was sent the EBook for review, however after reading the first few chapters I knew I wanted this on my shelf forever. Celestine lives a pretty much perfect life until she encounters a situation in which she would be viewed as flawed. She breaks a rule and now must fact the repercussions.

The Marble Collector by Cecelia Ahern
When Sabrina finds a collection amongst her father’s possessions, she discovers that the man she grew up with was a stranger. I’ve been wanting to pick this up since it’s release at the end of last year, and now I finally found an extremely cheap copy I cannot wait to read it!

Moving by Jenny Éclair
Moving is the story of a woman who is moving house now she is divorced and her children have all left. But as she is moving, she discovers secrets that have been left behind. I picked this up a while ago and thought it sounded like a good contemporary read, when I found it even cheaper I couldn’t have been more pleased.
