Book Haul #3: MPH Booksale 2015 (September)

AlqDR1muBpCiq1Rx5SIYFKfzKPpvGkUMW80HLOfXCSsZWhaddaya know, a backdated book haul. Who knows that life had (or has) me caught up in its busy trenches?

As usual, back synopsis + short commentary + online links will be available, so here we go.

From left to right, top to bottom:

Half A King (Shattered Sea Book, #1) by Joe Abercrombie

Goodreads, Books Depository

Betrayed by his family and left for dead, Prince Yarvi, reluctant heir to a divided kingdom, has vowed to reclaim a throne he never wanted.

But first he must survive cruelty, chains and the bitter waters of the Shattered Sea itself - all with only one good hand. Born a weakling in the eyes of a hard, cold world, he cannot grip a shield or swing an axe, so has sharpened his mind to a deadly edge.

Gathering a strange fellowship of the outcast, he finds they can help him more than any noble could. Even so, Yarvi's path may end as it began - in twists, traps and tragedy...

From what I heard, Half A King’s protagonist is not your typical heir to the throne and he may or may not be physically disabled. Novelty is king and novelty here means have-not-yet-encountered-before.

Book Haul: Page One Book Sale 2015

During such periods, Goodreads ratings and tbr lists are thrown out of the window since I only care to pile more titles into my greedy arms. And there’s a certain pleasure in that. In fact, I feel as if a modern day rebel and daredevil.

As usual, the back synposis  and a short commentary of Why-I-Bought-It will be included, as well as respective links to each’s Goodreads and Books Depository page to faciliate matters.

Book Haul: MPH Book-fair 2015

IMG_0075It’s been a year since I’ve last bought any books and you won’t believe how excited I was at the book-fair. I initially intended to only go for 5 books (and that was alot even, since I didn’t know what sort of selection they had to offer). Initially didn’t work out.

Either ways, I’m (still) super excited and happy about my haul! I’ll put the back synopsis on each of the books below, as well as their goodreads and book depository links so you can check it out too, if you’re interested. A short commentary on why I bought them will also be included.
