I was on BookOutlet strolling through my wish-list, not looking to buy anything right away but just planning on what I wanted to get for the Boxing Day Sale and I noticed they had Winter by Marissa Meyer in-stock. Last time I waited to get Winter just before a sale on BookOutlet and they ended up being sold out by that time. So, I didn’t want a repeat of that happening and so I made an order.
Winter is the fourth and final book in the Lunar Chronicles and I love this series. They are entertaining and have such wonderful characters. The Lunar Chronicles are retellings of fairy tales, Winter being a retelling of Snow White. I can’t wait to start reading Winter and see how the book ends.
Grisha Series by Leigh Bardugo
BookOutlet had hardcover copies of Shadow and Bone and Ruin and Rising, which are the first and third book, respectively, in the Grisha Triloogy. This series has been hyped up on BookTube and I want to see what the fuss is about.
This series is a young adult, fantasy series and in this world it has been torn apart by the shadow fold, a darkness filled with monsters that eat humans. Alina Starkov has been sent to the shadow fold to fight the monsters and while fighting she reveals a dormant power that saves her. She is then taken to the royal court to be trained with the Grisha, which are the magical elite of their society. The leader of this elite group is called the Darkling and he believes she has the power to destroy the fold.
I have started collecting these Puffin children’s classic editions because they are only few dollars on BookOutlet and I haven’t read that many children’s classics but would like to. I have watched the movies based off of these children classic books. For this order I picked up Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and A Little Princess. I want to read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland soon because I want to read it before I read Heartless by Marissa Meyer, which is a story about the Queen of Hearts and how she became so wicked.
A Murderous Procession is the fourth book in the Mistress of the Art of Death series. I have only read the first in this series and liked it a lot and gave it 4 stars on Goodreads. This series follows Adelia Aguilar who is a medical doctor, a mistress of the art of death and she solves murders by examining the bodies for evidence. I am not sure if I should read this before I have read the second and third books in the series.
These aren’t the only books I purchased in December, in total I received 22 books last month. I did already book haul post for them and will link them if you missed them. I have my Thrifty Book Haul and my Christmas Book Haul. As always hope you enjoyed. 🙂
