April Book Haul

Hey guys I actually ended up buying some books this month! I have been trying to stop myself from buying so many books because I already have over 400 unread books which sometimes makes me feel really bad, but then I just look at my bookshelves and it bring me so much happiness that it is definitely worth it, haha. I ended up buying two books that I needed and if you keep on reading you will learn why. So without further ado lets get on with the haul;

Ice Wolves by Amie Kaufman

I bought this book because of my all consuming love for the Illuminae Files series and I really want to see how Amie Kaufman writes on her own. After reading Unearthed a few weeks ago I am a little deflated about her books but I still have high hopes for this book since the synopsis sounds really cool!

Goodreads Synopsis

Everyone in Vallen knows that ice wolves and scorch dragons are sworn enemies who live deeply separate lives.

So when twelve-year-old orphan Anders takes one elemental form and his twin sister, Rayna, takes another, he wonders whether they are even related. Still, whether or not they’re family, Rayna is Anders’s only true friend. She’s nothing like the brutal, cruel dragons who claimed her as one of their own and stole her away.

In order to rescue her, Anders must enlist at the foreboding Ulfar Academy, a school for young wolves that values loyalty to the pack above all else. But for Anders, loyalty is more complicated than obedience, and friendship is the most powerful shapeshifting force of all.

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

This book has been getting so much hype and tonnes of amazing reviews so I had to buy it. I am actually pretty excited to read it and may be doing so this coming month. The synopsis of this book sounds really exciting and I am hoping for a really wild ride 🙂

Goodreads Synopsis

Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zelie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls. 

But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were targeted and killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.

Now, Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good. 

Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers—and her growing feelings for the enemy.

What books did you guys buy this month? Also if you have read either of these books let me know what you thought of them 🙂

Thank you for reading!
