October Book Haul

Wow, I’m writing up a book haul!

I haven’t done one for a while, not a monthly one in any case, so it is nice to have one to write up again!

October has been a full-on, overwhelming month. When I get overwhelmed I tend to bring myself back down to earth by buying books, Switch games, and/or anything else that is relatively calming. It works a treat, so much so, I acquired more books than I wanted to. But these things happen and I won’t complain about it.

Some of the books I’ve got are pre-orders, some came in a book box, and others are ones I’ve bought directly from a bookshop.

All book links are non-affiliate


A Single Thread of Moonlight by Laura Wood: YA | Historical Fiction | Romance | Retelling

The Haunting Season by authors including Kiran Millwood Hargrave, Imogen Hermes Gowar, and Natasha Pulley: Adult | Short Stories | Fiction

Midnight in Everwood by M.A.Kuzniar: Adult | Fantasy | Fairytale Retelling

A Box of Stories Halloween Box

A Box of Stories is a new book subscription box I discovered this year and I absolutely love everything about it. I gushed and talked about it some more in my first ever unboxing, but just to quickly summarise for any one new to it, it curates four surprise books from a particular genre that are under hyped and at risk of being destroyed.

My new box was a special, limited edition Halloween box they curated and I’m very intrigued by the four books I received. They’re all very much outside of my comfort zone and not what I’d usually buy for myself but that’s the good thing about the box. They encourage you to try new books in the hope you find that hidden gem!

Cut by Marc Raabe: Adult | Crime | Thriller

The Silver Road by Stina Jackson, translated by Susan Beard: Adult | Translated fiction | Crime | Thriller | Mystery

The Doll Funeral by Kate Hamer: Adult | Fiction | Contemporary Fiction

The Wayward Girls by Amanda Mason: Adult | Fiction | Thriller | Ghost Stories

My Waterstones Books:

For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten : Adult | Fantasy | Fantasy | Retelling

The Monsters of Rookhaven by Pádraig Kenny, Illustrated by Edward Bettison: MG/YA | Fantasy | Horror – it is also my current, finished read and I LOVED it! It was incredibly atmospheric with such a good balance of creepy, mystery, heart, found family and friendship.

And there we have it!

So many interesting and good books to read…..or leave on my shelf for a couple years until finally reading them!

Have you bought any books recently? If so, share and recommend all the books!

As always, thanks for reading and have a brazzle dazzle day!

Hello, I’m Emma aka pageturner92, and welcome to my little corner of the online book world. When I don’t have my head in a book, I’m either working on an endless pile of crochet or knitting projects, playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons, listening to Disney music, or watching my favourite shows on repeat.
