All About Books

A book blog, mostly touring foreign worlds of fantasy novels with occasional detours into space and explorations of magical realism, featuring book reviews, random bookish thoughts and hand lettered quotes.

Book Haul: September 2013

Before I get to all the awesome books I got this month: I was interviewed by Elena @ Leseträume! The interview comes in two parts: Part 1 and Part 2 (it’s in German)

Now to the books. I got quite a few and didn’t even have the time to read most of these. But it’s this typical September madness where we get overwhelmed with too many new releases.

SepHaul PreOrders:

+ Project Cain by Geoffrey Girard (already read this one -> very different, but awesome)

+ Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black (CREEPY vampires! Loved it!)

+ Antigoddess (Goddess War #1) by Kendare Blake (Loved this one too)

+ Asylum by Madeleine Roux
