what’s the buzz: weekly round-up and book haul
So Avengers: Endgame happened and I am not okay at all… don’t get me wrong, some of the twists I saw coming a mile off but it still ended up being a pretty emotional affair. No spoilers (because I would hate to be THAT person) but wow… still processing.
Apart from that, it’s been a pretty quiet week. I haven’t bought that many books (well, for me at any rate!) though I did purchase the Darkdawn Illumicrate box today. I was kinda unsure of whether to get it or not as I had pre-ordered the Waterstones special edition.
However, I noticed that it had changed to the normal signed edition without the sprayed edges on my order notification (grrr!) so I cancelled that and went with the box instead. Illumicrate haven’t let me down yet (with either their special edition or regular boxes) so I’m pretty confident I’m going to love it!

weekly bookish purchases
The fourth book in the Smyth vs Smith series – and the final book I had to buy to complete the set. It was the hardest to track down (any copies floating about are ridiculously expensive) but Thrift Books finally got a copy in so I snapped it up right away. 😉
Enchantée by Gita Trelease | This Savage Song by V.E. Schwab | Our Dark Duet by V.E. Schwab | Under the Pendulum Sun by Jeannette Ng
I already own This Savage Song and Our Dark Duet but they were both going for £0.99 on Kindle so I couldn’t resist them. I also got Enchantée and Under the Pendulum Sun which are books I’ve wanted since they came out.
Room 13 and Inside the Worm by Robert Swindells | Attachments by Rainbow Rowell | Introductions by C.L. Stone | You Make Me Weak by Juliana Stone
I remember reading Room 13 years ago (when I was away on a school trip just like the characters in the book!) but I never realized there was a sequel. I also thought it was high time I read Attachments since I have thoroughly enjoyed Rainbow Rowell’s YA fiction.
A Lot Like Home by Kat Cantrell | Different by Alycia Linwood | Flight by Alyssa Rose Ivy | A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir
Some interesting-looking titles, I’m happy to finally add A Reaper at the Gates to my collection since I have the first two books already.
received for review
Happily and Madly by Alexis Bass | Love, Heather by Laurie Petrou | Spark by Anna Holmes | Caught by Raathi Chota
Just a couple of ARC’s requested this week but I’m really looking forward to reading all of them. The covers are pretty stunning too!
