Already this month I’ve gotten a few books, and since I doubt I’ll get any more this month, I’m here doing my January book haul!
And even if I do end up getting more books, I’ll add them to my February book haul – and there will definitely be one next month because it’s my birthday in February 😀
Once again I apologize for the photos not being great. My phone camera isn’t the best but I’m working on it.
But anyway, on with the book haul!
The Lies of Locke Lamora
by Scott Lynch
I believe this book is an epic fantasy sort of novel, based around a band of thieves with a Robin Hood vibe to it – full of adventure and schemes. Admittedly I don’t know much more about this book, I just want to give it a try. I think the title drew me in, it has a nice ring to it. This is the first book in The Gentleman Bastard series, and I’ve seen a lot of people adore this book so I hope I do too!

This one I bought on a bit of a whim. Here in the UK we have this shop called The Works, which sell random books for just £1.99. And every so often they have books that actually look really interesting – I think my best find there was Red Queen. I’ve seen a lot of people go on about Angelfall, so I thought “why not pick it up if it’s only £1.99???” So I did. And here it is, now added to my collection. From what I know, this book is the first in the Penryn and the End of Days trilogy, and is a mix between fantasy and paranormal romance.
End of Days

Now, this is where the explaining needs to come in. When I saw Angelfall in The Works for just £1.99…I also saw the last book in the same trilogy on the same shelf for just £1. How could I resist if I was buying the first one? And it was so cheap! All I need to do now is buy the second book in the trilogy…bt I think I’ll wait until I read Angelfall before I do that, just to be sure I enjoy the series.
Walking Dead Volume 1
by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore
Last but not least – and the one I’m probably most excited about – is The Walking Dead Volume 1 graphic novel. Now, I’m not much of a Zombie story fan (yet). But so many people have recently been getting into the TV show, and I figured there must be some reason people love it so much. Plus every time I go into Waterstones I kept eyeing up this graphic novel collection – which there are LOADS of, by the way. I’ve seen it go up to volume 24, but there may be more than that. And I’ve been tempted for so long to give these graphic novels a go…so I am!
So there we have it! My first haul of 2016!
Have you read any of these books? Or are they on your TBR?
