I haven’t made a lot of book purchases until recently. Usually, I borrow books virtually from the library. However, there have been a few books that I couldn’t wait to read and other books where I wanted a physical copy because I enjoyed them so much. Here are my recent book buys.
- A Court of Silver Flames Barnes and Noble Exclusive Paperback Edition
I have all of the original covers for the first part of the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. I have been wanted to round out the series by buying a physical copy of A Court of Silver Flames, since I only have a copy on my Kindle. However, I am not a huge fan of the silver or orange covers. When I saw Barnes and Noble was having an exclusive edition which is black with a gray mask, I knew that I had to purchase it, as I liked it more than the original covers.
- A Very Merry Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams
I have read all of the Bromance Book Clubs books through my library, so I was hoping to read the latest installment through my library as well. I wasn’t too impressed with the last two books in the series, so I was hesitant to purchase a copy.When a copy didn’t appear in my library, I decided to purchase the book for my Kindle because since it is a holiday read, I couldn’t see myself picking it up after Christmas. I was so happy that I ended up purchasing this book because it is my favorite in the series!
- Throne of Glass Hardcover Box Set
When I saw the 10 year anniversary of Throne of Glass coming up, I knew that it meant new covers would be on the way. My suspicions were nearly confirmed when I went on to Amazon and saw the Throne of Glass sets discounted. I feel attached to the original covers because these were the covers when I read the series for the first time, so I wanted to make sure I bought the physical copies. I learned the hard way from A Court of Thorns and Roses that if you don’t purchase the original covers when they are on shelves, then resellers will jack up the price later on. A few days after my purchase, Sarah J. Maas announced the new covers for the series, so I am glad I picked up my copies when I did!
- Icebreaker by Hannah Grace
I was in a bit of a reading slump and I saw Icebreaker recommended several times of TikTok. Like with A Very Merry Bromance, I suggested this book to the library, but it hasn’t appeared on there yet. As a result, I decided to buy it for my Kindle. I haven’t finished this book yet, but I think it will be a great one to read in December.
- Crescent City Fairyloot Exclusive Editions
Sarah J. Maas should just take all of my money at this point. When I saw the Fairyloot exclusive editions for Crescent City, I knew I had to have them! These editions will have redesigned dust jackets, sprayed edges, and character art. I don’t believe they will ship out until next year though, so I still have a little longer to wait until I have them in my hands!
