It was my birthday last month, and I was lucky enough to get some incredible books as presents. Some of these are books I’ve been looking forward to for ages so I can’t tell you how happy I was to open them.
Because they know me so well, both my boyfriend and my parents got me copies of the new hardback of Vicious, and my boyfriend also got me the Collector’s Edition of ADSOM, which I’d already received as a present for Christmas. As much as I was happy to keep multiple copies of both, my parents suggested I swap them for other new books, so I picked up The Poppy War instead.
I’m thrilled to have a copy of the new edition of Vicious, as well as The Queens of Innis Lear and In Order To Live, both of which I’ve been wanting to read for ages.
Do you usually ask for many books for your birthday? Have you read any of these?

Happy birthday ❤
Happy Birthday! That’s an awesome haul! I also ask for a lot of books on my birthday, it’s the one type of present that always makes me happy
I LOVE the new edition of Vicious. I’m trying so hard not to buy it because I have no shelf space and already own a copy haha. The Poppy War has been popping up EVERYWHERE recently and I really think I should treat myself to this book haha.
Happy birthday!!! ❤
Wow – these all look so amazing! I looooved A Darker Shade of Magic. I'm not sure why I haven't read the rest of the trilogy yet!
I saw The Queens of Innis Lear at Waterstone's the other day, and I was so tempted to buy it.
I hope you had a wonderful birthday! It’s kind of nice your loved ones buy you books. My daughter is the only one who nurtures my love of reading.
Aww that’s a great birthday haul! My husband usually pays for a fairyloot or illumicrate box for me as he never knows which books to buy lol
Yes I always ask for books! I have read the Queens of Innis Lear
Happy Belated Birthday!! I wish I got books for my birthday! My family and friends are usually hesitant to get me any because they don’t know what I have and haven’t read. Seems like you got a nice haul though!
Happy belated birthday! My family and friends know I love reading, but they are afraid to buy me books for this exact reason of not wanting to double up on titles, haha! Enjoy your bday haul!
Happy belated birthday! That copy of Vicious looks amazing 😍 😍 😍 I really have to get around to reading it, as I’ve heard so many great things about it!
Happy birthday! You got a lot of great books! That edition of ADSOM is so pretty, I might buy one for myself haha 😀 And I need to get The Poppy War, since it’s so interesting and everyone seems to love it.
Thanks Tiffany! Yeah, I was really happy with what everyone bought me 🙂 The Poppy War is fantastic. I’m only about half way through so far and it’s very dark, but so good that I’d definitely recommend it!
Oooh, I’ve wanted to read Vicious for ages!! Have you started it? These books all sound so good!
Happy Birthday!! I am so so jealous of that copy of ADSOM that you have, it’s gorgeous. I still need to finish the trilogy and get onto Vicious and the Monsters of Verity series.
Thank you! Yeah, the ADSOM copy is beautiful, I think it’s available to order on Book Depository if you wanted to get a copy? 🙂 ADSOM is pretty much my favourite trilogy of all time, but I also LOVE the Monsters of Verity series, the world-building and characters are just sublime!
Wow, this is such an awesome V.E. Schwab-filled haul! Out of everything you got, I’m most excited for the Schwab books (obvs) as well as The Poppy War!
I like your boots! 🙂
Thanks so much JM! I was really happy to get more of V’s books, especially because I’d been after the Vicious collector’s edition for a while! I’m about half way through The Poppy War right now, and it’s excellent. I’d definitely recommend it!
i know this is late but i hope you had a great birthday!
