Last Book Haul of 2020!!!

Sad but true. I present my last book haul of this year. I have more than enough books at the moment to occupy my time for the next several months. There are also certain books I want/need to read before the end of the 2020.

Here is the lovely book mail/haul I received this month:

 

Let’s begin with the manga. I bought more volumes of Snow White with the Red Hair and Yona of the Dawn.

Snow White with the Red Hair is one of the sweetest romance anime and one of my favorite all-time anime. I love all the characters who are each very likable in their own way. The manga is just as good with all the feels.

Here’s the synopsis (from vol. 1):

Shirayuki is an herbalist famous for her naturally bright-red hair, and the prince of Tanbarun wants her all to himself! Unwilling to become the prince’s possession, she seeks shelter in the woods of the neighboring kingdom, where she gains an unlikely ally—the prince of that kingdom! He rescues her from her plight, and thus begins the love story between a lovestruck prince and an unusual herbalist.

And you can read my review of volumes 1 & 2 here.

 

Yona of the Dawn is another great anime I love but there was virtual no ending. So far the manga has been amazing and I can’t wait to continue this wonderful fantasy story.

About this manga series:

Princess Yona lives an ideal life as the only princess of her kingdom. Doted on by her father, the king, and protected by her faithful guard Hak, she cherishes the time spent with the man she loves, Soo-won. But everything changes on her 16th birthday when she witnesses her father’s murder!

Yona reels from the shock of witnessing a loved one’s murder and having to fight for her life. With Hak’s help, she flees the palace and struggles to survive while evading her enemy’s forces. But where will this displaced princess go when all the paths before her are uncertain?

I’ve rated this series overall (up to vol. 6) a strong 4 stars.

 

And finally we have the highly anticipated and concluding book to the Dark Kings series, Inferno, book 18!

I am ready to fall head over heels in love with Constantine’s (the King of Dragon Kings) story.

Here’s the goosebumps-inducing synopsis for Inferno:

I knew what I wanted. And nothing was going to stop me.

King of Dragon Kings. Driven, ruthless, shrewd. The weight of survival for Constantine and his brethren has pushed him to set aside his own yearnings—for now. He’s the most powerful of all Dragon Kings, and Con will stop at nothing to destroy anyone who dares to threaten his existence.

For years, Con has hidden his pain—his desperation—for there is one smoldering beauty that he craves above all else, even if he feels he doesn’t deserve her. However, his enemies are at every corner. There is no one left to trust. But none of that matters anymore: There is only one thing that Con wants. With this one woman by his side, he can fight for the freedom of his fellow men-in-arms. All Con has to do is get her to surrender her heart…and be his for all time.

When I first discovered the author’s books I (whoops!) started in the midst of things, so I’ve only read the two books prior. But it wasn’t hard for me to immerse myself the world the author created or get hooked by the story and characters.

Dragon shifters are the best!

If you’d like, here are my reviews of Fever (book 16) and Flame (book 17); all spoiler free. I really love Donna Grant’s books and would recommend her books to anyone who loves dragons, fierce heroines and paranormal romances.

That’s all for today! Until next time!


Have you received any book mail recently? Are there any more books you’re hoping to get this year?


As Always, Happy Reading!!!

The Last Book Mail (for now)

Hello, everyone!

I posted about this on Instagram over the weekend but I wanted to share the goodies I received here too. I recently got more books in the mail (yay!) but I’m going back on a book buying ban for a while (not yay). Nevertheless, I am excited to read both of these books!

I got Red White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston and also The Tourist Attraction by Sarah Morgenthaler!

ABOUT | Red White & Royal Blue

What happens when America’s First Son falls in love with the Prince of Wales?

When his mother became President of the United States, Alex Claremont-Diaz was promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal. Handsome, charismatic, genius—his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There’s only one problem: Alex has a beef with an actual prince, Henry, across the pond. And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an Alex/Henry altercation, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse.

Heads of the family and state and other handlers devise a plan for damage control: Stage a truce between the two rivals. What at first begins as a fake, Instagrammable friendship grows deeper, and more dangerous, than either Alex or Henry could have imagined. Soon Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret romance with a surprisingly unstuffy Henry that could derail the presidential campaign and upend two nations. It raises the question: Can love save the world after all? Where do we find the courage, and the power, to be the people we are meant to ben? And how can we learn to let our true colors shine through? , how will history remember you?

 

ABOUT | The Tourist Attraction

When Graham Barnett named his diner The Tourist Trap, he meant it as a joke. Now he’s stuck slinging reindeer dogs to an endless string of resort visitors who couldn’t interest him less. Not even the sweet, enthusiastic tourist in the corner who blushes every time he looks her way…

Two weeks in Alaska isn’t just the top item on Zoey Caldwell’s bucket list. It’s the whole bucket. One look at the mountain town of Moose Springs and she’s smitten. But when an act of kindness brings Zoey into Graham’s world, she may just find there’s more to the man than meets the eye…and more to love in Moose Springs than just the Alaskan wilderness.
