Stacking the Shelves: May Book Haul Part 2

Stacking the Shelves is co-hosted by Reading Reality and Tynga's Reviews. Each week bloggers post the books they purchased or received. Last week I posted the first part of my May book haul which you can find here. This is the second part of my May book haul because I got way too many books last month... I just couldn't resist, you know how that is, right?

1. Flame in the Mist (Flame in the Mist #1) by Renee Ahdieh

I got this one in my Fairyloot box and it is one of my most anticipated books of the year! I hope to get to it soon!

2. A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3) by Sarah J. Maas

This was my most anticipated book and sadly I felt really disappointed. You can find my review here.

The next four books I got from the bookdepository for 20 euros, which I think is a pretty great bargain!

3. Traitor's Blade (Greatcoats #1) by Sebastien de Castell 

I've had this book on my radar for a while and when I saw it on the bookdepository for less than six euros, I couldn't resist buying it.

4. The Veil (Devil's Isle #1) by Chloe Neill

5. The Enchanted by Rene Denfeld

I've heard good things about this one! Can't wait to read it!

6. Pomfret Towers (Barsetshire #6) by Angela Thirkell

I've been wanting to read an Angela Thirkell book for a while now. This is the sixth book in a series though. Can anyone tell me if I need to read the others first?

I also got five e-books last month! I've been craving some romance novels lately, you can definitely leave some recommendations below!

7. Don't Stop Me Now by Colleen Coleman

I actually got approved to read this on Netgalley but back then I didn't realize I had to download it before it disappeared. And it did disappear, so when I saw the e-book for less than 3 euros, I got it without thinking twice! I'll be reviewing this one soon!

8. Bully (Fall Away #1) by Penelope Douglas

I got these Penelope Douglas books because I watched PeaceLoveBooksxo on Youtube recommending them often. And they were cheap.

9. Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas 

10. Romancing the Duke (Castles Ever After #1) by Tessa Dare

I actually really enjoyed this one! I'll be reading more of this author in the future! I decided to try these out after watching April from Aprilius Maximus on Youtube talking about it.

11. If I Only Had a Duke (The Disgraceful Dukes #2) by Lenora Bell 

Once again on the recommendation of Jessica from PeaceLoveBooksxo.

    1. Thanks! It's one of my favourites I got this month! Hope to read it soon!

  2. I see that we both got Flame in the Mist. Hope you love all of your new books.

  3. OMG I LOVED ACOWAR! One of my most anticipated reads for this year, sorry you didn't love it. Also just finished Flame last week and enjoyed it. I have seen Traitors Blade pop up recently and it looks interesting hope you enjoy all the goodies! My Shelf

    1. Thanks! I'm glad you liked ACOWAR! I didn't hate it, but I expected more somehow. I gave it 4 stars in the end. I hope to read Flame in the Mist very soon! Can't wait!

  4. I'm hoping to buy Flame in the Mist if they have it at the bookstores here this summer when my book buying ban has ended. xD

    1. I haven't tried a book buying ban yet, probably should conisdering the last book hauls I did :p

  5. Oooo, I knew I should have bought that FairyLoot box. I loved Flame in the Mist. It's a new favorite for sure. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a fantastic weekend, Lynn. =)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

    1. Thank you! I'm now even more excited to read Flame in the Mist!

  6. Great haul! I really want to read Flame in the Mist after reading The Wrath and the Dawn duology. I'm sad to hear that you were disappointed with A Court of Wings and Ruin; I've heard that from others as well. I recently finished A Court of Thorns and Roses and I really liked it, so it's upsetting to hear that the last one is underwhelming. I hope you enjoy your other new books though! Have a great weekend :)

    1. Thank you! You should definitely still read the read of the ACOTAR trilogy, I just expected too much of it, I guess. I was also ill while I read, so that also could have lessened my enjoyment of ACOWAR.

  7. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on Flame in the Mist, I'm so excited for that one!

  8. I hope you like Flame in the Mist. I got about 130 pages in and had to DNF. It just couldn't hold my interest and I didn't like the MC. I've seen lots of people liking it though.

    1. Thanks! I've started to hear some mixed things as well, so you're not alone there.
