Book Haul – 5 November 2019

In the last couple of weeks I have been lucky enough to receive copies of several amazing new releases, and figured it was time for another Book Haul post.  This Book Haul features a range of really interesting and diverse books, all of which I am very excited for.

Star Wars: Resistance Reborn by Rebecca Roanhorse

Let us start this post off with the book I was probably most eager to receive, Star Wars: Resistance RebornResistance Reborn is set to be the main tie-in novel to the upcoming The Rise of Skywalker movie, and I have already featured this book in a Waiting on Wednesday post and my Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases for July-December 2019 list.  Needless to say after receiving it last week, I have already read it, and will hopefully get a review up in the next few days.

The Diamond Hunter by Fiona McIntosh

Another book that I received recently and have already read.  The Diamond Hunter was a really good historical drama written by Australian author Fiona McIntosh.  A short review of this book is going to run in the Canberra Weekly in a couple of days, and I am hoping to get a longer review done up as well.  In the meantime, make sure to check out my review of McIntosh’s last book, The Pearl Thief.

The Wailing Woman by Maria Lewis

This is a really intriguing piece of urban fantasy about banshees from Australian author Maria Lewis.  I am actually in the process of reading this book at the moment, and so far it is pretty good.

The Magnolia Sword by Sherry Thomas

This is an interesting sounding retelling of the classic tale of Mulan.  I have heard some promising things about this book from other reviewers and I am looking forward to checking it out.

A Murder at Malabar Hill by Sujata Massey

This is an interesting sounding book that is set to be released next year.  I really like the sound of a murder mystery set in 1920’s Bombay, and it should prove to be a fantastic read.

Spy by Danielle Steel

Now, I have to admit that Danielle Steel is not usually the sort of author I would read.  However, this sounds like quite a compelling historical thriller, and I did rather like one of Steel’s other 2019 releases, Turning Point, so I think I will check this book out.

Legacy of Ash by Matthew Ward

The final book on this post is an exciting and massive fantasy debut I just received today.  I have actually had my eye on this book for a little while now, and this book is quite high on my reading list at the moment.

I am very happy with the above books, and I am extremely confident that I am going to enjoy all of them.  Let me know which of these books interests you the most.
