Welcome to my July Book Haul! It is thanks to my amazing boyfriend that I was able to accumulate some new books this month. He very kindly gifted me some of these which I really appreciate. This is a collective haul for the month of July. I am fairly certain I will be walking out of YALC this weekend with a handful of books but I will make a separate post on those!
Death Note All In One Edition By Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata
All 12 volumes of Death Note in one monstrously large edition!
This hefty omnibus combines all 2,400 pages of the megahit thriller into a single massive tome, presented in a beautiful silver slipcase. A perfect collectable conversation piece and a must-have for Death Note fans. Also contains an epilogue chapter never before seen in English!
Light Yagami is an ace student with great prospects – and he’s bored out of his mind. But all that changes when he finds the Death Note, a notebook dropped by a rogue Shinigami death god. Any human whose name is written in the notebook dies, and now Light has vowed to use the power of the Death Note to rid the world of evil. But when criminals begin dropping dead, the authorities send the legendary detective L to track down the killer. With L hot on his heels, will Light lose sight of his noble goal…or his life?
I am super excited to read this series. I have heard its fantastic and I really wanted to read it before watching the series. The all in one edition was so much more financially appealing. Especially as one volume of manga usually retails at around £7.99-9.99 GBP. We managed to get all the volumes on Amazon for £20! The only downside is that is absolutely massive and holding it is going to be hard.
Sword of Destiny By Andrzej Sapkowski
Geralt is a witcher, a man whose magic powers, enhanced by long training and a mysterious elixir, have made him a brilliant fighter and a merciless assassin. Yet he is no ordinary murderer: his targets are the multifarious monsters and vile fiends that ravage the land and attack the innocent. He roams the country seeking assignments, but gradually comes to realise that while some of his quarry are unremittingly vile, vicious grotesques, others are the victims of sin, evil or simple naivety.
In this collection of short stories, following the adventures of the hit collection THE LAST WISH, join Geralt as he battles monsters, demons and prejudices alike .
As some of you might know if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram that I recently started reading The Witcher Saga! After all the hype surrounding the Netflix show I really wanted to read the series before it aires. I am about half way through The Last Wish and my boyfriend kindly sent me the second book for when I’ve finished, yay! If you would like more information on this series I wrote a post explaining more about it, here.
City of Lost Souls By Cassandra Clare
What price is too high to pay, even for love? When Jace and Clary meet again, Clary is horrified to discover that the demon Lilith’s magic has bound her beloved Jace together with her evil brother Sebastian, and that Jace has become a servant of evil. The Clave is out to destroy Sebastian, but there is no way to harm one boy without destroying the other. As Alec, Magnus, Simon, and Isabelle wheedle and bargain with Seelies, demons, and the merciless Iron Sisters to try to save Jace, Clary plays a dangerous game of her own. The price of losing is not just her own life, but Jace’s soul. She’s willing to do anything for Jace, but can she still trust him? Or is he truly lost?
The final addition to my July Book Haul. I am loving this series so so much! I only have two more books left in The Mortal Instruments and I am not ready for it to end. City of Fallen Angels really was the weakest so far in my opinion and so I was feeling slightly sceptical going into City of Lost Souls. I was worried that the elements from the previous book I did not like might continue into this one. I have read a few pages and I am already intrigued as to how things are going to progress to that’s a good sign!
That’s it for my July Book Haul. What books have you hauled so far this month? Comment down below!
