Looking Back at Our Bookhauls| March 2019

It’s that time of month again to look back at one of our previous bookhauls. This month it’s time for March 2019. This is our birthday month, so the amount of books we ending up collecting could go either way, haha. What did we get, what have we read? Let’s take a look!

Candyce

In March of 2019, I only added a total of 8 books to my collection. I had a feeling that this month wasn’t going to be too good when it comes to what I’ve already read. That being said, I will be adding these to my TBR very soon. I want to read them all, so I need to get going!

A Girl Called Shameless – Laura Steven

I’m actually really shocked that I haven’t read A Girl Called Shameless yet. The Exact Opposite of Okay has become of my all time favorite books and I even did a reread last year. This will be a book I read this year!!

Unread

The Triumphant – Lesley Livingston

This is a series I’m apparently going to take forever to finish, haha. Isabelle and I ended up reading The Defiant the month before The Triumphant was released, so that we could finish the next month. That never happened, haha. I want to know how it ends though, so this is yet another book I need to read ASAP.

Unread

Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee – Jeff Zentner

Jeff Zentner is an author I’ve heard amazing things about. I actually own all three of his books. A few people I know told me I should start with his first book first, so I’ll just have to plan on three of these to read soon.

Unread

Two Can Keep a Secret – Karen M. McManus

I’m still so happy with my copies of the books this author’s written. They all have sprayed edges. Today’s post is boring for me, because I haven’t read this one either, haha. I do really want to read Two Can Keep a Secret though. Hopefully soon!

Unread

Enchantee – Gita Trelease

I’ve been saying this for awhile, I really need to read more historical fiction. According to Goodreads the sequel has been pushed back, so I have a little more time to get to what seems to be a really good book!

Unread

Truly Devious – Maureen Johnson

Finally a book I can say that I’ve read, haha. Truly Devious suprised me in a pleasant way. I loved the mystery and the dual timelines. The next book, The Vanishing Stair, was added to my shelves last Christmas and I can’t wait to continue with this trilogy.

Read

The Bone Witch – Rin Chupeco

Another book I’ve heard a lot about, but still haven’t gotten around to reading. The Bone Witch seems like it will be a darker book, more so than some I’ve been reading lately. I love books with witches, so I can’t wait to read it.

Unread

Heart of Thorns – Bree Barton

If I’m honest, this was definitely a cover buy, well gift. I added it to my wishlist. Heart of Thorns sounds really good though. With the mention of forbidden magic and royalty, I knew I needed to have this book.

Unread

End Result:
Read: 1/8 – 12.5%
TBR: 7/8 – 87.5%

Isabelle

I am super scared to look at this one. From what I remember, I added quite some books to my collection and I’m pretty sure I didn’t read them all… Let’s dive in!

Lifelike – Jay Kristoff
Unread

I did read some more Jay Kristoff since this haul and I’m exicted to read this one. However, I do think I’ll first read the rest of the Nevernight trilogy before jumping into this one. The series will probably be completed by then so I can bingeread the whole thing!

Senlin Ascends – Josiah Bancroft
Read

I’m glad I did read this one! The beginning was a bit difficult but I started listening to the audiobook and that was the perfect choice. I highly enjoyed it and I plan on continuing with the series.

The Winner’s Curse – Marie Rutkoski
Unread

I have been planning on reading this series for years now! The series has been completed for 4 years already and I actually own the eARC for the beginning of the new series set in the same world. I plan on reading this one this year so I can pick up the eARC as well.

The Magic Misfits – Neil Patrick Harris
Read

I adored the Magic Misfits! Such a fun MG read that I picked up thanks to Candyce. I already own the second book in the series and plan on reading it in May.

The Archies and other stories – Matthew Rosenberg
Read

This one wasn’t as good as I was hoping, and I ended up giving it 3,5 stars. I did like it and bought the first volume in the Jughead: the Hunger series after reading this!

Bloodwitch – Susan Dennard
Unread

I can’t believe I still haven’t continued with this series! The first two books in the series are amazing and I was so excited to receive and start Bloodwitch. I’ve also heard amazing things about this installment and I hope it can live up to my expectations.

A Girl Called Shameless – Laura Steven
Unread

Another one I can’t believe I haven’t read. I really loved the first book and thought this one started super funny once again. My plan in to read it in the coming months, let’s hope I can follow through 😉

A Curious Beginning – Deanna Raybourn
Unread

Another one I plan on reading in the coming months. The synopsis sounds amazing and I did like what little I already read. This is the first in a series so if I enjoy it I can continue with 4 more books!

A Discovery of Witches
Unread

I’ve been reading more adult fantasy but haven’t come around to reading this one yet. The tv show looked great but I won’t watch it until I’ve read this one. I think it’s going to take me awhile to get through this one, but at some point I will!

Kings of the Wyld
Unread

Candyce recently picked this one up, but I still haven’t. I have heard amazing things though! It isn’t on my immediate TBR but I’m still very excited to read it.

Wundersmith – Jessica Townsend
Read

I loved Wundersmith! This series is amazing and I can’t wait for the next book. I’m so sad the release date got pushed back until August but I’m sure it’s going to be worth the wait!

Fire & Heist – Sarah Beth Durst
Unread

I was able to buy this one from a friend but I still haven’t read it yet. There were a lot of disappointing reviews unfortunately. It is a standalone and I do like to finish a fantasy story every now and then 😉

The Storm Crow – Kalyn Josephson
Unread

Another one with mixed reviews. It hasn’t really ‘spoken’ to me yet and I haven’t felt the urge to pick it up this last year. Hopefully I’ll want to read it at some point.

Sadie – Courtney Summers
Unread

I can’t believe I haven’t read this one yet. But I did started listening to the audiobook last week so I should finish it soon! So far it’s quite interesting and I’m excited to see where the story will take me. And the audiobook is fantastic!

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina vol. 1 – Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
Read

I read and loved this one! Sabrina is one of my favorite shows and it was great reading the graphic novel it’s based on. There were some key differences but it was very enjoyable. I definitely plan on picking up the rest of the series.

Fence vol. 2 – C.S. Pacat
Read

Fence is AMAZING. I adore these boys and this series so much. The new volumes don’t come out nearly quick enough though haha. I believe the next one comes out the end of June and I can’t wait!

Shades of Magic vol. 1 – V.E. Schwab
Read

I love V.E. Schwab and I adore her Shades of Magic series. It’s a super interesting universe and it’s great having this graphic novel series as a prequel. I’ll admit it isn’t as good as I was hoping it would be but I still plan on reading the rest of the series.

End Result
Read: 7/17 – 41%
TBR: 10/17 – 59%

So that’s another look at what we bought last year. If you’ve read any of these, what did you think? We love talking about books, so let us know in the comments! We’ll be back with another looking back at our bookhauls next month. Hopefully we’ve read a lot of those, haha.

  1. I always love reading this post! It’s so much fun to look back at last years haul and then find out how much you’ve read of the hauls or haven’t read yet! I’m a bit scared to find out my results if I’d ever look into it, lol. 



    @Candyce,

    O wow, I wasn’t expecting there’d be so many books you wouldn’t have read yet haha. I still haven’t read the Triumphant yet either. Maybe we should pick up were we left of with the group read we had going on with Marie! And coming across the Bone Witch, it reminds me yet again that I need to ship the book back to you, lol! As soon as I’m not sick anymore I’ll post it – can’t go to the story atm unfortunately and hubby is neck deep in work so he can’t go either 😦 Heart of Thorns is still on my wishlist. Looks so good!



    @Isabelle,

    Great idea to wait until Truel1f3 comes out so you can binge the trilogy. I think you’re going to love these books! I remember you listening to Senlin Ascends, at the time I started reading the paperback. Haven’t gotten back to it anymore haha. The Winner’s Curse is on my TBR as well. Heard such great things about it! And I can’t believe you haven’t read Bloodwitch yet! I remember you being such a fan of the series so far. Awesome cover edition you have there of a Curious beginning! Mine looks quite different but is also beautiful I have to say, but love the coloring in this one! Curious to see what you’ll think of Kings of the Wyld. I really liked it! You have a huge haul last year btw, damn haha!

    1. That’s so sad! I think there was hardly any promotion in the USA for it unfortunately. It’s such a great book!

    2. It’s definitely worth it though! I hope you get the chance to read it.

    1. I’m halfway through Kings of the Wyld. Definitely recommend it!
