It has been a while since I have done a Book Haul post, so I figured it was a good time to look back at some of the amazing books that I have received in the last couple of weeks. I have actually received quite an impressive haul recently, made up of a number of exciting and intriguing books, including a few novels that I have been looking forward to for some time. Each of the books below have a lot of potential and I am really keen to check them all out as soon as I can.
The first entry on this book haul had to be the book that I am most looking forward to reading, Chaos Rising. Chaos Rising is the first novel in a brand new Star Wars trilogy from the amazing Timothy Zahn that focuses on the early days of his most iconic character, Grand Admiral Thrawn. This is one of my most anticipated reads for 2020 due to how much I loved all three novels in Zahn’s previous Thrawn trilogy (Thrawn, Alliances and Treason), and it is sure to be an outstanding and epic read.
Dead Man in a Ditch is the intriguing sounding follow-up to the urban fantasy novel, The Last Smile in Sunder City by Luke Arnold. The Last Smile in Sunder City was a great book that came out earlier in the year and I cannot wait to see how Arnold follows it up in this second novel.
Lionhearts by Nathan Makaryk
A cool and awesome sounding retelling of the legend of Robin Hood, Lionhearts should make for a pretty epic read.
The House of Lamentations by S. G. Maclean
The House of Lamentations is a compelling historical thriller that will serve as the final book in MacLean’s fantastic Damien Seeker series. I really enjoyed reading the previous two entries in this series, Destroying Angel and The Bear Pit, and I cannot wait to see how the story ends.
The Tower of Fools by Andrzej Sapkowski
Another intriguing series from Andrzej Sapkowski, author of The Witcher novels, yeah, now that is something I need to check out. This new release is the first English translation of The Tower of Fools, which Sapkowski wrote some years ago. It sounds pretty damn awesome and I cannot wait to see how it turns out.
Battle Ground by Jim Butcher
Battle Ground is the 17th entry in the acclaimed urban fantasy series from Jim Butcher, The Dresden Files. I have been meaning to get into The Dresden Files for some time now, and this could be a good opportunity to check it out.
The Bone Shard Daughter by Andrea Stewart
This is an intriguing sounding fantasy debut from a new author that could be worth checking out. The Bone Shard Daughter has a fantastic plot synopsis behind it and I really love the book’s elaborate cover. Hopefully this turns out to be an epic and enjoyable read and I am looking forward to reading it.
River of Gold by Anthony Riches
The latest entry in a long-running and enjoyable Roman historical fiction series. It has been a while since I have read an Anthony Riches novel, but River of Gold sounds like a great new entry and I think I may try and read it next.
The Left-Handed Booksellers of London by Garth Nix
The final entry in this post is The Left-Handed Booksellers of London, a new standalone young adult fantasy novel from talented Australian author Garth Nix. Nix is an amazing author who I have been a fan of for years. I really enjoyed his last standalone novel, Angel Mage, and this new book also sounds really fun.
Well that’s the end of this latest Book Haul post. As you can see I have quite a bit of reading to do at the moment thanks to all these awesome books that have come in. Let me know which of the above you are most interested in and make sure to check back in a few weeks to see my reviews of them.
