Febuary Book Haul (2017)

I cannot believe how many books I have to share with you guys!  So much for the book buying curb that I had put on myself.  A lot of these books were preorders or I was gifted them.  Do to the immensity of this list I am going to try to keep things short and sweet, but if you would like to know more about these books keep an eye out for my reviews on them.

1) Carve the Mark by: Veronica Roth

This was one of my most anticipated releases of 2017.  I had it preordered for a couple of months.  I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews on this book, but I can’t wait to read it and form my own opinion on it.

2) The Shimmering Road by: Hester Young

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway, and I don’t know too much about it other than it is an Adult Thriller.

3) King’s Cage by: Victoria Aveyard

This is yet another one of my most anticipated releases of 2017.  I read Red Queen and Glass Sword around this time last year and I’m super pumped to be able to read this one!  I might actually wait until the final book is out and read the whole series at once.

4) Fairest of All: Tale of the Wicked Queen by: Serena Valentino

I got this book in a Valentine’s Day themed book swap.  I do already have the Beauty and the Beast and Maleficent books that are similar to this one.  One of these days I need to read all the Disney books that I have stacking up on my shelves.

5) A Conjuring of Light by: V.E. Schwab

I have heard so many great things about this series!!  I need to get to reading it now that I have all three books!

6) The Last of August by: Brittany Cavallaro

This is the second book in the Charlotte Homes series.  If you know me, I love all things Sherlock Holmes!  Anything Sherlock is great in my book, especially imaginative remakes.

7) Wintersong by: S. Jae-Jones

I honestly don’t know anything about this book other than it was a total cover buy for me.  I mean look at that cover!!

8) Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them by: J.K. Rowling

You have no idea how excited I was when I heard this book was coming out.  I was extremely disappointed in The Cursed Child and do not consider it cannon.  On the contrary, people have been raving about this book.  I seriously cannot wait to see what all the hype is about!

9) Unspoken by:Sarah Rees Brennan

This is yet another boo that I received in the swap that I did.  I haven’t gotten a chance to read the synopsis, but I have heard some mixed reviews so I’m not sure when I’ll be getting to it.

10) Love and First Sight by: Josh Sundquist

While I was perusing the shelves at Target I happened upon this beauty and opened it up to read the synopsis.  This book sounds like such a cute contemporary about a boy who can’t see and trying to navigate through life and learning that people aren’t always what they seem.  I definitely am going to save this book until the warm summer months, but I knew I had to at least have it in my collection at present.

11) Roseblood by: A.G. Howard

OMG!!! A Phantom of the Opera retelling!!  AHHHH!! I fell in love with the musical as soon as I saw it in middle school and knew I had to have this book.  I was so happy that Owlcrate featured it in their January box.  I’m only adding it to this haul because I didn’t do one for January.

12) Wires and Nerve by: Marissa Meyer

One of my most favorite series continues in this spinoff comic.  I loved the Lunar Chronicles with all my heart and I am super pumped to read more about Iko and her adventures after the events in Winter.

13) Nowhere But Here by: Katie McGarry

I don’t know too much about this book other than there is a motorcycle gang and a bad boy.  If that doesn’t sell the book I don’t know what will!  I think I’m gonna save this book to read during the summer when I can sip some lemonade and lay out in the sunshine.

14) How To Hang a Witch by: Adriana Mather

My inner history nerd came out as soon as I found out this book was being published.  I love all things history and when authors use it in their books.  I’ve always found the Salem Witch Trials to be a very interesting point in history and reading about it is one of my favorite things to do.  One of these days I really want to go to Salem, Massachusetts and see the historical site for myself.

15) What Light by: Jay Asher

This book sounds so cute!!  A girl and her family grow christmas trees that they then move to California to sell the month before Christmas.  She almost leads a double life and falls for a boy during that month she is away.  This sounds like such a heartwarming read!  I’ve heard many great things about Jay Asher, but I’ve never had the chance to read anything by him yet.  While Christmas is a long way off, I may save this book until then as it doesn’t quite feel right to read during the spring or summer.

16) Caraval by: Stephanie Garber

Yes, I do have 3 copies of Caraval, and,no, I am not ashamed!  This book was one of my most anticipated releases this year.  When I found out that the UK version would have a beautiful cover under the dust jacket I knew I needed to get at least one of them.  I preordered it about a month in advance, but I ended up getting sent another one on accident.  I was able to snag the clock and the tent designs.  And then in my Owlcrate I got the US version!  This is the most copies of one book that I own!

Phew!  If you made it this far, thank you for sticking with me!  I cannot believe I got that many books in one month!  I really need to curb my spending a bit.  What books did you guys get ;ast month?  Let me know in the comments!
