January (and a bit) Book Haul!

Remember the days when every Sunday bloggers would post what new books they had in? I used to love hopping round blogs being nosy but it's something that has gone out of fashion. There were scandals and other hosts just stopping blogging and it's faded away. I kinda like reminding myself of the damage once a month so I'm going to start doing these posts again. I usually share new physical books on Instagram when I get them but I never keep track of the hoards of ebooks I buy.



Physical Books Bought

Most of these were bought with a combination of gift vouchers from Christmas and loyalty points and The Extinction Trails was in the Wildest Dreams subscription box. So I haven't been spending much money but still seem to have used up a fair amount of (non-existent) shelf space.

Discworld Imaginarium by Paul Kidby
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling + Olivia Lomenech Gill
The Stone Sky by N.K. Jemisin
Saga Volume 8 by Brian K. Vaughan + Fiona Staples
Monstress Volume 2 by Marjorie M. Liu + Sana Takeda
The Extinction Trials by S.M. Wilson

The Wildest Dreams box contains a tea and bath/beauty product with each book. This toffee apple rooibos was pretty yummy and came in a test tube masquerading as dinosaur DNA.



Review Books

Because I have an aim to read more backlist this year I have been very good at not requesting much, however Canongate and Hodder have naughtily been sending me goodies, and of course I want to read them all. Argh!
