Mega Book Haul Part 2: Series and Comics
As promised, I'm back again with Part 2 of my January haul, this time with comics/manga and series. If you missed out on Part 1, which was standalone novels - go check it out here. At the end of January I had my birthday and I was spoiled by the husband. All of the comics here were gifts from him and I'm so excited about them! The books on the other hand, were all gifts to myself (or my inability to control my book buying habit). Anyway, let's get into it!
First, I had to pick up this Harry Potter box set. I read all of the books a LONG time ago, but I never owned any of the books. I remember actually waiting and reserving them at the library as they were released. I love this box set because of the epic depiction of Hogwarts with all the spines together. So great!
Next, I had to buy the rest of the Unwind Dystology after reading the first book. I was hooked! I already finished and reviewed it here, so go check that out if you're interested.
The next three novels I picked up are all first books in a series. I had to pick up The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making after seeing several booktubers talk about how it's one of their favorite books. It's a middle grade book about a girl who embarks on an epic adventure and has to figure out how to get herself out of some tricky situations. Normally, I wouldn't go for a middle grade novel, but this seems really interesting and fun.
After reading A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, I was interested in reading more by him, so I picked up book #1 of the Chaos Walking Trilogy. This is a Young Adult Dystopian trilogy (which apparently I need more of?) where everyone can hear each other's thoughts. When the main character, Todd, wanders into a town that is completely silent, he finds out they are keeping a secret. I'm not sure what the secret is, but at this point Todd is on the run.
Next, Fire & Flood by Victoria Scott I bought entirely because it's apparently a dystopian novel that is like a realistic Pokemon. Meaning... people have animal companions that help them battle. Yea, enough said, shut up and take my money.
You guys, look at these black editions of Death Note. The edges are also sprayed black. I've never read Death Note, but it's been on my to-read list for like... years. Literally. The hubs hooked me up with all 6 of these volumes and now I'm set. I can't wait to start!
I spoke (typed) about East of West several months ago in my Comic Book Favorites #1 post. As mentioned, it is one of my absolute favorites and now that I have it in trade paperback form, I can read it whenever I want without worrying about ruining my single issues. Yay!
Lastly, I'm a big fan of The Walking Dead, but I've yet to read the comic version of this epic story. The husband, again, surprised me with not just one volume, but the first compendium (which contains 48! issues). This will take me a few minutes to read...
That's it! I think it is plenty... Let me know if you have read any of these and what you think!
