For some unknown reason that really quite baffles me, romances are found in pretty much every single book. If you find one that doesn’t contain a romance, then shout it to the heavens because that’s a rare occurrence.
While we might not find it realistic for every story to have a romance, the majority of us can’t help but love them.
With the wait for The Song Rising – the 3rd book in this series – being so long, I knew I needed to reread this book and the second one. Admittedly, I should have started my rereads sooner, since I still need to read the 2nd book and the 3rd book is now released. But still. Here we are at last.
Let’s dive into The Bone Season!
Title: The Bone Season

And while I don’t make that huge a fuss about my own birthday, it does mean I was treated to some new books, and that alone is exciting for me!
Like with my December Book Haul, my main version of this haul is actually on my booktube channel, since it’s a lot easier to explain which were gifts/which I got before my birthday, along with why I’m interested in them. So the video will be down below, but underneath the books and synopsis’ will be listed for anyone who doesn’t have enough time (or simply don’t want) to watch the video.
My first, proper nonfiction book of this year. And hopefully not my last.
I didn’t know how this was going to go. I don’t read nonfiction – why would I do that when I can read about magic and faeries and dragons in fantasy books? Buuuuut my love for history is gently drawing me into nonfiction, so here we are today.
Logic dictates that this post should have gone up around new year. Or at least some time in January. A new year, what better way to bring it in than look at all the book you’re excited for?
Well, this post isn’t logical. In January, I could barely think of any books I’m anticipating. I lost complete track of when each book is being released, so it took some time to gather everything up. But recently, I added a “waiting on…” page in my bullet journal, listing all the books I’m waiting for this year. And so, here at last, are the books I’m waiting for!
This will be split into two sections: The books that are new, shiny releases, and the books that are already out, but I’m waiting for a specific edition.
This book has been on my radar for a while now – all of Khaled Hosseini’s books have been – so when the lovely people at SocialBookCo contacted me through their review programme, asking if I would like to review this for them, of course, I said yes!
This is the 3rd book I’ve reviewed for them. This is basically a site that compares all the different prices of books from different retailers, showing you where you can buy each book for the cheapest price. And then there’s the reviewing side – If you join their programme, there are opportunities for you to be sent books for free in exchange for an honest review by a given date. So check it out if you’re interested!
