Book Haul

Hey guys, this is Abi here,
And as you can see from the title, today I am doing a book haul! (I've bought so many books recently, I swear I have a problem).
I have bought 10 books in approximately 2 weeks! (That may not be much but it is for me)
Here they are:
1. All the Bright Places, by Jennifer Niven
2. Crown of Midnight, by Sarah J. Maas
3. Heir of Fire, by Sarah J. Maas 
4. Queen of Shadows, by Sarah J. Maas
5. One Day, by David Nicholls
6. The Raven Boys, by Maggie Stiefvater
7. Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell
8. Carry On, by Rainbow Rowell
9. The Faceless Ones (Skulduggery Pleasant #3), by Derek Landy
10. Death Bringer (Skulduggery Pleasant #6), by Derek Landy.
Here is the picture: 
So now I'm going to be talking a bit about these books okay? Okay.

1. All the Bright Places, by Jennifer Niven
Okay from what I know, there have been a lot of mixed reviews on this book but, and I don't really know why, I am really looking forward to reading this one. This is what I know about this book so far: This book is about two main characters, Violet and Theodore. Theodore wants to kill himself, and Violet is devastated by her sister's death. They meet, and "so they're story begins..." and as the book goes on, Violet's life starts to get bigger, and Theodore's starts to shrink. (That's on the back)
This book jumps from both perspectives. And I am actually really looking forward to reading this one. 

2. Crown of Midnight, 3. Heir of Fire and 4. Queen of Shadows, by Sarah J. Maas
Okay, so I know that these are separate books, but since they're a series, in gonna just put them together, because they're just beautiful. 
Now these are the second, third and fourth books in the Throne of Glass series, and the hype for them, particularly Queen of Shadows, is MASSIVE. If you haven't read Throne of Glass, (or Assassin's Blade, since that one is the prequel) then you should. This series is about an assassin, in case you were wondering. And I just can't wait to read these. 

5. One Day, by David Nicholls
Now this book is also a movie, and I had absolutely no knowledge of this until recently, which in today's society makes it a good book. Hopefully.
By the way, can you see the two faces on the cover, because it took me like two minutes to see them, though it might just be a bad eye-sight thing. 

6. The Raven Boys, by Maggie Stiefvater
I'll get to the book in a minute, but isn't the cover just beautiful? Now I finished this book approximately a week ago, and I'm kind of iffy on it. Like the plotline was fairly good, but it took me like 6 days to read it, and if I like books I tend to finish them in less than 6 days, (unless they're absolutely MASSIVE), but a lot of people who agree with me about this book always say that the second one (The Dream Thieves) is better than the first, so I kind of feel obligated to read it, so I will. 

7. Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell
Okay, I have re-read this book a couple of times, and I fly through it every. Single. Time. And please try to ignore the weird mark at the bottom of the book (honestly it wasn't me and cue the "wasn't me" song. But seriously it wasn't me, I bought it like that. And before you say "why not just buy another one?" I will reply with "It was the only one left" and it was)
I love this book so much. Full stop. It's such a cute, yet kind of not cute story because of all the things that happen with Cath's family, and everyone else. But this is one of the few cute stories that I can actually read without putting it down. 

8. Carry On, also by Rainbow Rowell
OMG, the hype for this book is so big, and you will not be disappointed! I'm 100 pages from the end, and although I have been reading this book for 5 days, which I consider excusable as it is like 520 pages, the characters and the plot and just everything is a big pile of magic and fascination, and I recommend you pick it up! Also I got 6 McDonald's vouchers when I purchased this, so that should be reason enough to read it!

9. The Faceless Ones (Skulduggery Pleasant #3) & 
10. Death Bringer (Skulduggery Pleasant #6) both by Derek Landy.
Okay, again I put these two together since they are in the same series. They are two books in the Skulduggery Pleasant, which consists of 9 books (and two spin-off books) that just GET BIGGER AND BIGGER, and thank god, because they are awesome! Oh, and am I forgetting something? Oh yeah, it features a SKELETON DETECTIVE. And a girl who can run on walls...
Anyway, I now own 7/9 of the original series (and the two spin-offs), look:
Funny enough, the two that I do not own are the 1st book in the series and the concluding one, but I WILL OWN THEM ONE DAY. Aren't the covers beautiful, by the way? This book series is so good, and so dark, and so action packed, and I love every single one of these books. Plus the dialogue. The dialogue is fantastic, in itself. It's so clever, and spunky, and I just love it. 

So those are the books in my book haul, and I hope you enjoyed it! If you have read any of these that I say that I haven't already read, please feel free to comment on what you thought, okay, Byeeeee!
