Book Haul – 20 January 2020

Welcome to my first Book Haul post of 2020, where I look at some of the cool books I have been lucky enough to receive in the last couple of weeks.  So far this year I have already picked up several great novels that I am really looking forward to read, and I will hopefully get reviews up for them soon.

The Last Smile in Sunder City by Luke Arnold

The Last Smile in Sunder City

The first book in this post is The Last Smile in Sunder City by debuting Australian author Luke Arnold.  I have been looking forward to this book for a little while now and I actually just finished it a few hours ago.  It was really good and I am so glad that I received a copy of this book.

Into the Fire by Gregg Hurwitz

Another book that I have been looking forward to for a bit, Into the Fire is the latest book in Hurwitz’s Orphan X series.  I really enjoyed the previous book in the series, Out of the Dark, last year and I am interested to see where Hurwitz takes the series next.

The Last Day by Andrew Hunter Murray

This is another interesting sounding debut that I am looking forward to trying out. The Last Day is an intriguing sounding thriller that is set in a future where the Earth has stopped turning.  This has all the ingredients for a pretty epic read and I am hoping to check it out soon.

Riptide by Kirsten Alexander

From Kirsten Alexander, the author of Half Moon Lake, one of my favourite debut novels of 2019, come this intriguing sounding new piece of Australian fiction.  It looks like Alexander has produced another compelling historical drama novel and I look forward to seeing how this one turns out.

Ember Queen by Laura Sebastian

The final book in Sebastian’s debut Ash Princess trilogy.  I really liked the first two books in this young adult fantasy series, Ash Princess and Lady Smoke, and I am quite excited to see how Sebastian concludes this amazing trilogy.

Well that is the end of my first Book Haul of 2020.  Not a bad start to the year in my opinion.  I am expecting some additional great books in the near future, so stay tuned to see what goodies I manage to pick up.
