Huge End of 2016 Book Haul

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Each week bloggers post the books they purchased or received. This is my December book haul. Some books I bought myself and others I received as gifts for Christmas or New Year's Eve.

These are the one I got myself:

1. Heartless by Marissa Meyer 

Sooo excited about this book! I got the hardcover and it's simply stunning! The Lunar Chronicles is one of my favourite series and I can't wait to read Wires and Nerve!

2. Six of Crows (Six of Crows #1) by Leigh Bardugo 

3. Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #1) by Leigh Bardugo 

I'm really excited to read this duology!

4. The Girl in 6E (Deanna Madden #1) by A.R. Torre

I've heard some good things about this book and while this is totally not my genre, I am excited to read it!

5. We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson

I've heard so much about Shirley Jackson, and the book I decided to read first! Can't wait!

This month I also decided to order an Owlcrate box and because I just couldn't get enough of subscription boxes, I ordered FairyLoot as well.

6. Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst

This hardcover was in my Owlcrate box. I'm a little disappointed because I've heard some pretty bad reviews about this one and I feel that doesn't go well with the theme of the box, which was 'epic'. If you want to know more about this box, please let me know in the comments.

7. Flashfall (Flashfall #1) by Jenny Moyer

As you can see above, this book was in my FairyLoot box :) absolutely love this subscription box! I actually couldn't resist and ordered the January box as well, because "Treat yo self"! :p

I actually haven't heard much about this book but I'm excited to get to it! I'm hoping to read it in January!

8. City of Thieves by David Benioff

I got this book from my uncle as a Christmas present together with a dvd of Fargo!

This year I also participated in the Secret Santa project hosted by the blog The Broke and Bookish! It was absolutely awesome! My Secret Santa is lovely 
girl from Sweden! She got me some Swedish sweets and chocolate and needless to say they were delicious and totally gone already! :p

She also got me the following books!

9. The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey
10. Walk on Earth a Stranger (The Gold Seer Trilogy #1) by Rae Carson

Really excited about all of them! Thank you again Kimberly! You are amazing!

My family actually exchanges the most gifts on New Year's Eve, I got some fantastic books from my parents (thanks dad!), my grandparents and my great-aunt.

11. How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran

12. Giant Days, Vol. 1 by John Allison (Author), Lissa Treiman (Illustrator), Whitney Cogar (Colors)

13. The Trouble With Women by Jacky Fleming

14. You (You #1) by Caroline Kepnes 

15. The Black Prism (Lightbringer #1) by Brent Weeks

16. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë

17. The Warded Man (The Demon Cycle #1) by Peter V. Brett

I'm really excited about all of these! I actually didn't expect I'd receive so many books this year, so I'm really pleased! 

Which books did you get in December? Have you read any of the books mentioned above? Or are you planning to? Leave your thoughts down below!


  1. I got Heartless as well. I hope you love all of your new books.

  2. 17 books, is that all? (kidding) I loved the Cooked Kingdom series and Heartless will break yours when you read it. I only say this because I came to love Cath, the main character so much. Have a great time reading.

    1. Thanks! I going to wait until my exams are over to read Heartless since I've heard from others that it's really sad. Really excited about both Crooked Kingdom and Heartless!

  3. I have been wanting to check out Six of Crows for a while. I still need to read Shadow and Bone though!

    1. I really enjoyed The Grisha Trilogy, so I can't wait to read Six of Crows! I've heard so many great this about that duology! Thank you for stopping by!

  4. You got so many Amazing books. I really need to read a Marissa Meyer book like ASAP. I want a subscription box so bad especially a fairyloot one. Have a great week.

    1. Thanks! I'm really excited about Heartless! Personally I would really recommend FairyLoot over Owlcrate, for my it's even a little bit cheaper and there is more stuff in the box. It's a really nice experience! I hope you get to try it out soon!

  5. Enjoy your books, and have a great week!

  6. Wow, that's an amazing haul. I loved The Girl with All the Gifts, and I keep meaning to start The Warded Man. Enjoy!

    1. Thank you! I am really excited about both of them!
