August 2018 book haul #1

Processed with MOLDIV

My book hauls are quite a mess lately. I just forget to post all that I buy on here, and then I forget what I bought when I think of blogging about it! So, here’s a book haul with some of the latest bookish additions!

Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

Celaena Sardothien, heroine of the New York Times bestselling series, rises from the ashes to burn even brighter than before.

Celaena has survived deadly contests and shattering heartbreak-but at an unspeakable cost. Now, she must travel to a new land to confront her darkest truth…a truth about her heritage that could change her life-and her future-forever. Meanwhile, brutal and monstrous forces are gathering on the horizon, intent on enslaving her world. Will Celaena find the strength to not only fight her inner demons, but to take on the evil that is about to be unleashed?

In this USA Today bestselling third book in the New York Times bestselling series, Sarah J. Maas again delivers the epic fantasy, heart-stopping pace, and heady romance that have won her readers the world over. Look for a teaser for the fourth book in the series, Queen of Shadows, out in this same season!

Can’t wait to continue reading this series!

Kin by Kealan Patrick Burke

On a scorching hot summer day in Elkwood, Alabama, Claire Lambert staggers naked, wounded, and half-blind away from the scene of an atrocity. She is the sole survivor of a nightmare that claimed her friends, and even as she prays for rescue, the killers — a family of cannibalistic lunatics — are closing in.

A soldier suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder returns from Iraq to the news that his brother is among the murdered in Elkwood.

In snowbound Detroit, a waitress trapped in an abusive relationship gets an unexpected visit that will lead to bloodshed and send her back on the road to a past she has spent years trying to outrun.

And Claire, the only survivor of the Elkwood Massacre, haunted by her dead friends, dreams of vengeance… a dream which will be realized as grief and rage turn good people into cold-blooded murderers and force alliances among strangers.

It’s time to return to Elkwood.

In the spirit of such iconic horror classics as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Deliverance, Kin begins at the end and studies the possible aftermath for the survivors of such traumas upon their return to the real world — the guilt, the grief, the thirst for revenge — and sets them on an unthinkable journey… back into the heart of darkness.

I’ve seen this book so much around Bookstagram and I can’t wait to read it myself this coming Autumn!

I also got some new bookmarks!

The first bookmark is from In The Reads and I got it with a discount, because it was a “misprint” (I can’t really see what it is, but yay!) I love the simplicity and of course the famous quote!

The last photo features the 30 (!) bookmarks I got on Wish for only the shipping costs! It’s a mix of flowers and twigs/branches/berries and I absolutely love it. I also ordered another pack of bookmarks in the same style, but then with whales!

What was your last bookish purchase? What’s something that’s still on your wishlist?
