April’s Book Haul

Over the Easter week, I had a clear out and tidy up of my room. It was mainly clothes and bags that were given to a new home.

But I did pull a pile of books out from under my bed and relocate them to the top of my wardrobe.

I moved series because I thought they would look the best lined up along the top. But it meant that I had gaps in my bookshelf and I couldn’t cope. Gaps on my bookshelf? What is the world coming to? By this point, I’m lying on the floor and my mother is laughing at me!

I’ve been fortunate lately as I’ve received some gorgeous books from publishers. I’m looking forward to all of them! As I have guaranteed reading time due to my commute, I’m also buying a few more. I’m still pretty swamped with review copies (yes, I got carried away requesting on Netgalley), but I’m hoping to get back to the library soon as well.

So many books, so little time!

Here are just some of the ones that have come into my possession lately through one channel or another:



The Wildflowers by Harriet Evans: guilty as charged: the cover drew me in on this one and I raised my hand for a copy as quickly as I could. It’s just as beautiful in reality as it is in the picture. The story sounds both charming and heartfelt; possibly an emotional read? This could be a perfect holiday book (although I’ll probably read it on the train!)



The Wolf by Leo Carew: I definitely wouldn’t use the word charming to describe this book but I’m really excited to read it. I’ve seen a few others reading it, so looks like it’s going to be a popular one. It looks like a long and exciting read that’s going to have me on the edge of my seat for the entire thing. This could make travelling entertaining!




What Happened that Night by Sheila O’Flanagan: This is an author I keep hearing about but haven’t yet tried myself. I really want to start her books though so I’ve got my fingers crossed this is going to be agood introduction into her writing. It sounds enjoyable but with an intense undercurrent – we shall see!




The Man with Two Names by Vincent. B Davis II: I saw this on an Amazon deal and decided it had been a while since I indulged in some historical fiction. That’s all I can really say: I just hope it’s good. It’s rated in Amazon’s nonfiction category as well, so I’m not sure what route it will take. I’ll let you know!




Servant of the Crown by Paul J Bennett: this one was for similar reasons as above really. It’s fantasy and the Arthurian legend combined (according to Amazon’s categories), so it would have been criminal for me to leave it!



Here are just a few of my new books. What have you been buying recently?

    • Ah but my latest is a fantasy book that isn’t everyone’s cup of tea 🙂 I appreciate any comment on any post. Ha, I’m the same, although it tends to just increase my TBR pile! I’m hoping they are good!

  1. I love reading what other bloggers have gotten in their book hauls! I’m with Jenny on this one; the cover of The Wolf looks so intriguing! I can SO relate on the bookcase front. I hate having empty spaces on mine, too, to the point where I used it as an excuse to buy more books when I bought a bigger bookshelf. Like we ever need an excuse really, right?!

    • I can’t wait to start The Wolf and see if it is as good as the cover suggests! I’m doing another haul post next month just because I went and bought more to fill in the gaps 🙈 thanks for the comment!
