August Book Haul! || 2018

I surprised myself this month with the little amount of books I accrued on my TBR. I think I must be broken, don’t you worry – I’ll try harder in September. I think this was partially aided by the fact that I didn’t receive any books from publishers in August, which was a nice chance to catch up on my TBR. But let’s jump into it!


Days of Blood and Starlight
by Laini Taylor

I had a moment of sanity where I actually made a reasonable decision concerning which books I should purchase. I thought, hey, what are some books I’ve read and enjoyed but didn’t get around to buying the sequel? And this was the answer! I really enjoyed Daughter of Smoke and Bone so I’ve now got a copy of the sequel to continue on the magnificent story.

LEGO Star Wars: Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy
by Vesa LehtimΓ€ki

This was such a nerd buy. I saw it for a good price on the Book Depository and both myself and Jayden like Star Wars so I got a copy. What is it? It’s a whole book of super high quality photos that are recreations of scenes from the Star Wars stories done in LEGO. It’s fantastic.


by Diana Gabaldon

I am diligently carrying on with this series and very excited about it. I’ve loved the first two books so far and am thoroughly enjoying the audiobooks so heck yeah I bought the third one! This is a whopping 44 hour audiobook . . . and they only get longer from here on in!

That’s a wrap!

Have you read any of these? What did you think!

Happy Reading

  1. Nice haul Kirstie!

    I picked up a clearance copy of Daughter of Smoke and Bone this year after reading Strange the Dreamer last year and LOVING it! I can’t remember, did you read StD? ((and yes, I just realized the abbreviation for Strange the Dreamer is STD, which stands for sexually transmitted disease here in the U.S. lol it gave me a chuckle)) If not, you totally should. I am fairly certain you’d adore it.

    Did you finish the 3rd Outlander book yet? Did it get better for you? I know you were saying that it was slow moving for you.

    1. Thanks Amanda! Haven’t read Strange the Dreamer but I loved Daughter of Smoke and Bone! (Also lol yep it stands for that here as well πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) I should most definitely read it!

      Not quite!! I’m about 80% of the way through now and it’s not taken off like I thought but still good!
