I bought very specific books in my August Book Haul. It wasn’t one of those months were I picked some reads at random, based on covers or fame.
In total, I got 5 books.
My most recent book haul included Gemina and Obsidio, book no. 2 and 3 respectively in the Illuminae series. I loved Illuminae, it was a such a unique read due to the way it was written in. Very original but also very intriguing story line, I was happy to pick up this sci-fi novel and now I look forward to continuing with the series.
Gemina picks up right after the ending of Illuminae and it tells a story through two new characters, Hanna and Nik, who are on board of the jump station Heimdall. Hanna is the stations captain’s daughter and Nik is a reluctant member of a crime family. Both of them confront the next wave of the BeiTech assault.
I haven’t read up any summary of Obsidio, because I didn’t want to spoil myself, but I’m happy to have it at hand in case I fall in love with Gemina and want to continue immediately.
The second part of my book haul included the remaining books in the Shatter Me series. I bought Unravel Me, Ignite Me and Restore Me, books no. 2, 3 and 4 respectively in the series. If you follow my blog, you know Shatter Me is the best book I read in 2018 thus far and the only one I felt that deserved 5 stars. I finished Shatter Me on the same day I started it and saying I cannot wait to jump right into its sequels is an understatement.
Unravel Me picks up the story of Juliette and Alex in continuing their fight against the rebellion. Once I finish my current read, I am sure to enjoy this series once more and my expectations are incredibly high.
That is it for my August Book Haul! Thank you for reading and until next time, Dream On, Dreamers!
