The Song Rising

AT LAST. I HAVE THIS BOOK IN MY CLUTCHES.

And I’m sure everyone who knows my blog, twitter, booktube, or instagram are glad for it too, because maybe, just maybe, that means I’ll stop talking about this series quite so much.

Let’s dive right in!

My first bookish event! |The story of how I fangirled so hard my face hurt from smiling

first book event

Believe it or not my friends, I hadn’t been to any sort of bookish event before now. Β Here in the UK, it’s rare for people to come to my city…which is quite surprising actually, considering I live in one of the largest cities. But, with my inability to travel elsewhere, I just hadn’t been to any kind of bookish event.

Until now. And ohhh I started with a good one. Because Samantha Shannon – one of my FAVOURITE authors – came to do a book signing/”evening with” event. And when I found out, I genuinely squealed. I was at my friends house and just shouted at her “OHMYGOSHWECANGOWECANGOI’LLGETTHETICKETSTOMORROWWE’REGOING.”

And so this has been planned for over a month.

The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon | Such an intense read, I can’t even

The Mime Order

How glad am I that I reread the first two books in this series before going onto the third? VERY.

I forgot so much. I feel like my mind has been enlightened. Like…I knew I was missing details, but not quite so much. And for a favourite series? Well, we can’t be having that now can we.

It’s been a long time coming.

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.

February/Birthday Book Haul! Stocking up my physical TBR once again

feb-haul

Sooooo it was my birthday on Friday πŸ™‚

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.

So let’s see what books I got in February!

A Nerve-Wracking Cover Reveal: The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon

Sog rising cover reveal

“Why nerve-wracking?” I hear you ask.

Well, when Samantha Shannon revealed the cover reveal was on it’s way, she also mentioned that THE SERIES DESIGN HAD BEEN CHANGED.

And we all know that while it’s the inside of a book that counts, we bookworms like our series covers to be matching.

And considering this is one of my favourite series, and I already have the first two books in the original covers…oooohhhh I was nervous.

But it’s here, so let’s see …

The Wonderful People I Will Keep Throwing Money At For Their Books… My Auto-Buy Authors!

auto buy authors

I think every bookworm has their auto-buy authors.

The authors where no matter what they publish, you WILL be buying it. The authors where you’re constantly waiting for any news of upcoming books. The authors where they could write out their shopping list, and you’d find it enthralling.

Granted, auto-buy authors is kind of a new concept to me. I knew about them, but didn’t think I had any of my own. Purely because I have this thing where it takes me forever to continue series, so most of the time I never have the entire collection of books.

But then I realized…there are a few.

Even though there’s only 5 here, I’ll split this into two sections:

– I own all their books so far & eagerly waiting for the next

Pretty self explanatory. Most of the time, these are ongoing series, or an upcoming release is not yet out.

– Permanent *grabby hands* at the books I intend on buying

I don’t yet own all the books these authors have published, but I fully intend on buying them to get the whole collection.

So who are my auto-buy authors? Let’s find out!

March Book Haul (The Book Haul That Shouldn’t Exist)

march book haul

Oh how this post shouldn’t exist.

Not when I got so many books last month.

I even told myself not to buy more at the end of the February Book Haul – and I quote:

“I don’t think there’ll be any need for me to buy books for a while now”

Shows how much I listen to myself.

Anyway, I got more books. And here they are.

Let’s jump right in!
