[Miscellaneous] Early Fall Book Haul — Oct 2015

Miscellaneous is the tagline to store random posts that don’t really belong elsewhere. They may involve tags, awards, challenges, and other book blogging nonsense.

What’s Miscellaneous Today?
Early Fall Book Haul — Oct 2015

No book spine poetry this time around either, BUT HOW DID I HAUL TWO PARCELS WITHIN A WEEK LOLOLOLOL.


Far Far Away – Tom McNeal

One of those “I’d like to read this but lol when can I read this?”. Also Brothers Grimm influenced so why the heck not?!

Mosquitoland – David Arnold

My “I need to find some more road-trip books to see if it’s just me that can’t do road-trips or if it was just one bad story”.  Plus, all you guys fucking hype and shit. And kabloomy — I had to get it.

Rule of Three: Fight For Power – Eric Walters

A continuation of book one. Considering this book is set in a city an hour away from where I reside, yes, I must read it.

We All Looked Up – Tommy Wallach

Hype meets disappointment in many opinions I’ve seen but since when has that ever stopped me? I still stand by my claim that this book sounds like a YA verison of the Coherence film.

Vicious – V.E. Schwab

…This is actually the Schwab title that I wanted to read first prior to ADSOM but I could never find it on hardback for cheap (not to mention I prefer the UK paperback design a lot more). But considering that this title is sold online for crazy amounts, I figured why not…no, actually, THANK THE DISCOUNT GODS!

Duplicity – N. K. Traver

An “I do want to read it but I can wait” purchase. If you remember, this is one of those titles I put on one of my old seasonal TBRs on the basis of the premise. Months later: I has it!


An Ember in the Ashes – Sabaa Tahir

I was surprised when I saw this on Book Outlet as I imagine this was a pretty hyped series. Retrospectively, I feel like I bought it because of hype than truly wanting to read it LOL. Damnit.

Half a King – Joe Abercrombie

I’mma just say that the original price for this book explodes wallets ($31 CAD) so I’ve been waiting it out. And the wait is over (but what is this nonsense of him publishing the entire series within the span of a year. That’s crazy fast!)


Bog Child – Siobhan Dowd

As the inspiration for A Monster Calls, I just had to find myself a book by Dowd. That’s more than enough reason.



Oh my god I need someone to take my credit card away because I’m legit hounding Book Outlet every morning before I sleep because certain books have <5 in stock and it just means I have to order, right?

I may or may not have more parcels coming…

  1. I was not blown away by Mosquitoland. I liked it, but it wasn’t amazing to me like everyone has said.
    An Ember in the Ashes was really good though. I’ve had We All Looked Up since it was released and still haven’t read it, lol.
    I am checking Book Outlet every day as well, lol. It’s kind of your fault… 😛


  2. Just looking at An Ember in the Ashes makes me hurt. I can’t believe I missed my chance. Sigh.

    I really need to get a copy of Vicious! ADSoM was okay, but I think I’m going to really love the former more. Even though I want the hardcover edition, I may just get the paperback one from the Book Depository since it’s so pretty. And not too bad in regards to price. Well at least not too bad compared to buying ADSoM in the UK version. That one is like thirty bucks for paperback. Sigh. But that’s okay, the US one is very nice looking too! (And I haven’t gotten to the point where I stock on multiple editions of books…yet.)
