Birthday Book Haul & Book Series Obsession

Bday bookhaul

Uhh… I’m not sure how this happened, but I am definitely not complaining!

A combination of birthday wishes (i.e. BOOKS) + seasonal sales (i.e. BOOKS) + gift cards (i.e. BOOKS) results in another huge book haul! And that means I have to finally put my Kindle down and actually start reading my physical TBR.

Less than a month ago, I’ve posted my May book haul with a TBR poll. This time, please comment down below what book should I read first or which one is your favorite!

    1. I know many people said that I don’t need to read the Grisha trilogy before reading Six of Crows, but I intend to start Grisha trilogy first. A weird thing is that I was able to purchase the 1st and the 3rd books in the series, but not the 2nd… Hopefully, in the next book haul *crossing fingersd*

      1. You don’t NEED to read The Grisha Trilogy first, but I think reading it beforehand makes the experience of reading Six of Crows better because you’re used to the world already. There’s more world building in the Grisha Trilogy than there is in Six of Crows.

  1. Happy Belated Birthday!! 😀
    I’d recommend the Brent Weeks book, though I haven’t yet read it. But I did read his Way of Shadows and loved it. It’s nice to see Circe there too. I really want to read that. I bought that same edition because the hardback looks beautiful.
