March & April’s Awesomely Huge E-Book Haul (25+ Books)

Between March and April, I have acquired quite a vast amount of Kindle books. Before quarantine, I already had a pretty decently sized digital catalogue of reads, but due to local libraries shutting down for an indefinite period and many local bookshops closing their doors or having shipping times extended quite heavily, I’ve suddenly discovered the true allure and efficiency of eBooks. To top it off, Amazon also provided me with two months of Kindle Unlimited reading for free, which is essentially just a gateway for them to suggest titles in genres I love. I’m a sucker, I know. Even so, the one thing I do appreciate about Kindle books is how fucking affordable so many of the titles can be. There were tons of books on my TBR (to-be-read) list that I managed to obtain during daily deals for pennies on the dollar. The bargains were really phenomenal.

I was chatting with a chum about my eBook shenanigans and they asked me how many titles I managed to snag. So, I sat down this morning and counted it all out. Between these last two months, I ended up hauling approximately 26 to 27 digital books total! Honestly, I was stunned and still am to an extent, more so when I think about how popular a lot of these pickings are. It makes those deals seem even more superb. Let’s just hope that the stories they tell further make them worth the indulgence.

Since there are so many fucking books on this list, I’ve only included the covers up top and then a master list of them down below with the genre. Clicking on the links shall take you to their respective GoodReads pages. So if something catches your eye, check out the GR links for a synopsis, ratings, reviews, and all that jazz. I’ve already read quite a few titles from this haul and reviews for them shall be up on their respective blogs, if they haven’t already been reviewed. Ordered by genre (Adult fantasy, Fiction, Young Adult, Middle Grade).

  1. That is a lot of great stuff in that haul! Jonathan Strange is great but be prepared for a sprawling, dense sprawl. Like don’t plan on doing anything for like a month while you read it!

    • Dense sprawl won’t bother me. I mean, Dune is my favourite sci-fi book lol. Talk about dense sprawling.

  2. “City of Brass” seems like something that’s right up my alley. I’ve been reading and obsessing over “Lions of Al Rassan” recently and it seems to have a couple of similarities.
