Blogmas | Book Haul | November & December 2019

BookHaul12:17

Hello and welcome to my my book haul for both November and December. I fell a bit behind with my haul last month so I decided to just put everything together. I don’t want to ramble too much, so here are the books I picked up in one way or another!


I received A Christmas Carol through Coffee and a Classic Box, which I have been subscribed too for months at this point. The Queen of Nothing I picked up at Barns and Nobel it is a signed edition because I could not resist.  Bonhoeffer is actually my mothers and I wanted to read it for a while so I am borrowing it from her because she is very supportive in my reading habit. Last, but not least is Gwendy’s Magic Feather which was a pre-order and a sequel to Gwendy’s Magic Box.

Great Goddesses is my latest purchase, I feel like Nikita Gill is one of the few poets I auto buy their works. I decided to pick up two of Shakespeare’s plays for a project I am working on for next year, I decided on Midsummers Night’s Dream and Twelfth Night. You should hear about that project very soon if you have not already. The Light Between Oceans is actually from my library, but I borrowed it this month for my book from Australia read, Bury What You Cannot Take is also for for that challenge, but takes place in China. Last in this pile is The Glittering Hour, this was my BOTM pick for December, if you want to see why I picked this one you can see my post here:BOTM Unboxing | December 2019.

My Best Friends’s Exorcism I picked up from a library sale, I know a lot of people were reading it during Halloween this year so I wanted to give it a go. I finally caved and picked up Alexander Hamilton that inspired the play. I also have my BOTM from November, if you want to know my reasonings you can see that here: BOTM Unboxing | November 2019.

Lastly I have The Morrigan, which is tales of a Celtic Goddess, I have always loved lure and myths so I wanted to explore more. I also picked up a book called Muse with the Moon, which is almost like a reflection activity book that has specific prompts during a particular phase of the moon. You all will be seeing that a lot, I am thinking about starting a series with what I put in that book each month until it is full.

BOTM Unboxing | December 2019

Unboxing

Hello and welcome to yet another BOTM unboxing. This month I honestly had a hard time picking a book, I was kind of tempted to skip. Upon first glance, none of the books were ones I was interested in apart from one I already own, so that was kinda a bust. Then, as I took the time to read through the descriptions, I came across this months pick!


I don’t know about you, but when I was in high school I had to read The Great Gatsby. While reading the description for The Glittering Hour, for some reason it reminded me of The Great Gatsby, but also the life style of the Fitzgeralds themselves. These figures seem larger than life and walk a fine line between partying and loosing it all. I feel like the main female character might live a life style familiar to them, but I could easily be wrong.

In addition to sparking a connection to the 1920’s over the top partying, I also love a good forbidden love story. I know it is so beaten to death, but honestly if I can read about true love against all odds,  I am so there. Also, it doesn’t seem like it is going to be a quick burn romance, since the story takes place over a few decades. This, is also a selling point because it seems like there might not be an insta-love situation, I really hope there isn’t one.

I really am excited to see how Selina Lennox balances staying on the “right side of a scandal” and what type of decisions she will have to make when it comes to Lawrence. I am hoping for a slow burn read and hopefully I won’t be too mad at the main character for her choices. Fingers crossed, I feel like this could go either way and I am excited to find out.


Does this book sound like something you would read?
