Happy Sunday! Today’s post is another book haul fate post, where I look at book hauls of the past and see if I ever read them, or if I still even have them. This is the tenth time I’ve done this so we’ll be looking at book haul number 10, which was originally posted on July 3, 2016.
Looking at it, it’s a pretty modest haul. Around that time I was on a read-5-buy-1 thing, so I must have been reading like bananas to get four books in a month. This is what I got:
Royal Assassin by Robin Hobb – Owned, Read
This ended up being one of my favorite reads of the year, and I think this was around when I started buddy reading with Zezee @Zezeewithbooks. (Or was it the third one, I don’t remember).
A Dance With Dragons by George R. R. Martin – Owned, Read
I gotta tell ya, my willingness to read Winds of Winter dwindles every year. When (if) it finally does come out, I can’t really say if I’ll be keen on it or not. This book here was alright though, so we’ll see.
Red Rising by Pierce Brown – Owned, Unread
This one (and the unread book right below this) have both survived multiple purges at this point. I’m still solidly in the ‘I want to read these’ camp, so that’s nice. Though to be honest I don’t know much about this one, other than it’s like… dystopian-y in space? And has something to do with blood color or caste color or something.
Emperor of Eight Islands by Lian Hearn – Owned, Unread
Out of both of these unread books, I know the least about this one. Honestly I can’t even tell you if this is historical fiction or historical fantasy. I’m hoping it’s the latter but I’ll be happy with the former as well. I do wanna read it though, the cover just draws me in.
And that’s it! If you’ve read any of the above, let me know! Happy reading!
