July and August Book Haul

Happy Friday Bookworms, hope you had a wonderful week so far!

My week has been okay, the weather has not been that great, unfortunately. We haven’t done anything special so far, it’s been a very calm week :)

But, today I will share with you a very fun thing. I know I love to read about it and to watch Youtube videos about it, namely a BOOK HAUL…YEY!! 

I’ve been a little nutty about buying books lately, so now I have to basically ban myself from buying more books for a little while. Well, I just need to try the best I can :)

Lucky me that I feel very happy with the new books I got and I feel very excited to read them all!


8 books are in my new stack:

The Night Circus:

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there when yesterday it was not. The black sign, painted in white letters that hang upon the gates, reads: Opens at Nightfall Closes at Dawn As the sun disappears beyond the horizon, all over the tents small lights begin to flicker, as though the entirety of the circus is covered in particularly bright fireflies. When the tents are all aglow, sparkling against the night sky, the sign appears. Le Cirque des Reves The Circus of Dreams. Now: the circus is open. Now you may enter.

The Raven Boys:

Blue has spent the majority of her sixteen years being told that if she kisses her true love, he will die. When Blue meets Gansey’s spirit on the corpse road she knows there is only one reason why – either he is her true love or she has killed him. Determined to find out the truth, Blue becomes involved with the Raven Boys, four boys from the local private school (lead by Gansey) who are on a quest to discover Glendower – a lost ancient Welsh King who is buried somewhere along the Virginia ley line. Whoever finds him will be granted a supernatural favor. Never before has Blue felt such magic around her. But is Gansey her true love? She can’t imagine a time she would feel like that, and she is adamant not to be the reason for his death. Where will fate lead them?

The Dream Thieves:

Now that the ley lines around Cabeswater have been woken, nothing for Blue and Gansey will be the same. Ronan is falling more and more deeply into his dreams …and his dreams are intruding more and more into waking life. Gansey is needed at home and is struggling to stay in Aglionby. And Adam? He’s made some new friends. Friends that are looking for some of the same pieces of the puzzle that Gansey, Blue, and Ronan are after. Great power is at stake, and someone must be willing to wield it.

First We Were IV:

A group of friends starts a secret society in this out-of-control thriller from the author of The Telling and The Creeping that examines the all-consuming love of lifelong friendship–and what someone is capable of when they’re afraid of losing it. Izzie loves nothing more than her three best friends, Viv, Graham, and Harry, and the bond the four of them share. And she’s terrified of their friendship falling apart next year when they go off to college. To bind them together, she decides to create something that will belong only to them, a special thing that they’ll always share between the four of them. And so they dream up the Order of IV, a secret society devoted to mischief that rights wrongs and pays back debts. At first, it works like a charm–but when the Order of IV’s escapades gets recognition beyond their wildest expectations, other people start wanting in. And soon, what started as a game of friendship is spiraling into something dangerous and beyond their control–and before it’s over, they’ll pay the ultimate sacrifice.

Flame in the Mist:

Mariko has always known that being a woman means she’s not in control of her own fate. But Mariko is the daughter of a prominent samurai and a cunning alchemist in her own right, and she refuses to be ignored. When she is ambushed by a group of bandits known as the Black Clan en route to a political marriage to Minamoto Raiden – the emperor’s son – Mariko realises she has two choices: she can wait to be rescued… or she can take matters into her own hands, hunt down the clan and find the person who wants her dead.Disguising herself as a peasant boy, Mariko infiltrates the Black Clan’s hideout and befriends their leader, the rebel ronin Ranmaru, and his second-in-command, Okami. Ranmaru and Okami warm to Mariko, impressed by her intellect and ingenuity. But as Mariko gets closer to the Black Clan, she uncovers a dark history of secrets that will force her to question everything she’s ever known.

Det du inte vet: (This book is a Swedish Copy and I won it from a Instagram giveaway)

The late summer heat is still on Gotland. Maria Wern is at a party with her new neighbors in Åminne when an explosive fire breaks out in a nearby house. The decrease is associated with a series of burglary breaks.

The next morning, Tomas Hartman’s daughter Sofi disappears from the beach in Åminne. On behalf of the region of Gotland, she investigated the consequences of oil drilling on the island. The disappearance takes place the day before the results are presented. Both environmentalists and venture capitalists in the oil industry are eagerly waiting for her response. Demonstration against oil drilling is run by Rasmus Flöjel, Sofi’s boyfriend during high school. More and more join the protest.

Tomas Hartman for a desperate battle against time to find his daughter. He knows how anxious and vulnerable she really is and how hard she is to fight her own demons.

Tiggaren: (Also a Swedish Copy)

Memory time is emotional. A young woman is dead, under unimaginable circumstances. But in the background there is a person who intimately considers the mourning, not to be seen.

At the same time, Stockholm’s beggars fall victim to what appears to be a psychopathic serial killer. The police are getting into the darkness, and the only person who can stop the murder must do everything to stay in the veiled.

Strange the Dreamer:

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around – and Lazlo Strange, a war orphan, and junior librarian have always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he’s been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance to lose his dream forever.What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of God? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving? The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries – including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo’s dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? And if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?

I guess you now understand why I am excited to read all of these books. Hopefully, they all are good :)

Now I am very curious to hear about your books purchase lately :) Have you purchased any book lately?
