Library Book Haul | January 2018

Hi book lovers!
Today I thought that I would share my book haul from the library for this month! I know the month isn’t over yet, but I am not allowing myself to go and get more books this month (you will see why in a minute!) so I thought I would show you all now!
Here are my books borrowed from the library for the month of January…

Ragdoll by Daniel Cole: This one I got through Netgalley ages ago but I never sent it through to my kindle so I never got to read it..I reserved it from the library to finally give it a go as the plot sounds really good!
The Dressmaker by Rosalie Ham: This one has since been returned to the library unfinished, it is my only DNF so far this month, I just couldn’t get into the story or invested in the characters so I gave up..
The Real Mrs. Brown by Brian Beacom: This one I came across randomly while I was looking for something else..I enjoy watching the show Mrs. Brown’s Boys, so I thought I would give the biography a go, I think he has a really interesting story about how he became Mrs. Brown. Hopefully it is a good read.

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hossein: This one has been all over my feeds everywhere..while I was perusing the shelves, there it was, so I picked it up. Its not the usual thing I read, but I have seen some good reviews, so I will give it a go..I hope that I am pleasantly surprised by it 🙂
Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris: This one has been on my TBR for the longest time, I reserved it to be my February book for the Library Love Challenge so I think I will keep it for my first read of next month.
Never Never by James Patterson & Candice Fox: This one has also been on my TBR for ages..I found it while looking through the shelves so I had to take it home!
Panic by Lauren Oliver: This one grabbed my attention while I was walking around the library, I read the synopsis, and thought it sounded pretty interesting, who knows?


Did you borrow any books from the library this month?? Have you read any of the ones that I have mentioned??
I would love to hear your comments and opinions! Leave me a comment in the box below!

Until next time, happy reading!

Beware the goblin men and the wares they sell.

All her life, nineteen-year-old Liesl has heard tales of the beautiful, mysterious Goblin King. He is the Lord of Mischief, the Ruler Underground, and the muse around which her music is composed. Yet, as Liesl helps shoulder the burden of running her family’s inn, her dreams of composition and childish fancies about the Goblin King must be set aside in favor of more practical concerns.
But when her sister Käthe is taken by the goblins, Liesl journeys to their realm to rescue her sister and return her to the world above. The Goblin King agrees to let Käthe go—for a price. The life of a maiden must be given to the land, in accordance with the old laws. A life for a life, he says. Without sacrifice, nothing good can grow. Without death, there can be no rebirth. In exchange for her sister’s freedom, Liesl offers her hand in marriage to the Goblin King. He accepts.
Down in the Underground, Liesl discovers that the Goblin King still inspires her—musically, physically, emotionally. Yet even as her talent blossoms, Liesl’s life is slowly fading away, the price she paid for becoming the Goblin King’s bride. As the two of them grow closer, they must learn just what it is they are each willing to sacrifice: her life, her music, or the end of the world.
