Book Haul: March 2023

Another month, another book haul post where I praise The Works for their excellent book prices. I definitely would not be buying physical books this often if this wasn’t the case. 

Bloodmarked (Legendborn #2) by Tracy Deonn

It’s been so long since I read the first book in this series, that I may need to reread it before starting this one. I actually also brought a physical copy of Legendborn as I read it on my Kindle, but wanted a matching set.

Synopsis: The shadows have risen, and the line is law.

All Bree wanted was to uncover the truth behind her mother’s death. So she infiltrated the Legendborn Order, a secret society descended from King Arthur’s knights—only to discover her own ancestral power. Now, Bree has become someone new:

A Medium. A Bloodcrafter. A Scion.

The Stolen Heir by Holly Black

When I saw this hardback was only like £8, sorry I can’t remember the exact price, I was so excited. Although I don’t own any of Holly Black’s books in hardback so that’s a little annoying and I will now have to get the second in the duology in hardback, but that’s fine I suppose. 

Synopsis: A runaway queen. A reluctant prince. And a quest that may destroy them both.

Eight years have passed since the Battle of the Serpent. But in the icy north, Lady Nore of the Court of Teeth has reclaimed the Ice Needle Citadel. There, she is using an ancient relic to create monsters of stick and snow who will do her bidding and exact her revenge.

Suren, child queen of the Court of Teeth, and the one person with power over her mother, fled to the human world. There, she lives feral in the woods. Lonely, and still haunted by the merciless torments she endured in the Court of Teeth, she bides her time by releasing mortals from foolish bargains. She believes herself forgotten until the storm hag, Bogdana chases her through the night streets. Suren is saved by none other than Prince Oak, heir to Elfhame, to whom she was once promised in marriage and who she has resented for years.

Now seventeen, Oak is charming, beautiful, and manipulative. He’s on a mission that will lead him into the north, and he wants Suren’s help. But if she agrees, it will mean guarding her heart against the boy she once knew and a prince she cannot trust, as well as confronting all the horrors she thought she left behind.

As Good As Dead (A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder #3) by Holly Jackson

I mentioned The Works not having this in last month’s post, but now I have it! I’ve been very restrained and have not devoured the entire series back to back and I’m proud of myself. I do plan to read the second book in April though. 

Synopsis: Pip is about to head to college, but she is still haunted by the way her last investigation ended. She’s used to online death threats in the wake of her viral true-crime podcast, but she can’t help noticing an anonymous person who keeps asking her: Who will look for you when you’re the one who disappears?

Soon the threats escalate and Pip realizes that someone is following her in real life. When she starts to find connections between her stalker and a local serial killer caught six years ago, she wonders if maybe the wrong man is behind bars.

Police refuse to act, so Pip has only one choice: find the suspect herself—or be the next victim. As the deadly game plays out, Pip discovers that everything in her small town is coming full circle… and if she doesn’t find the answers, this time she will be the one who disappears…
