Weekly Bookhaul: Comics, Graphic Novels and ARCs


As fate would have it, imminently after filming a huge bookhaul (on which there's a signed book giveaway so check it out!), book mail arrives. Maybe this did work out for the best however, as fifteen books in a haul was crazy enough without me adding the following to make the video last five-hundred years. I received incredible packages from Turnaround UK, Simon and Schuster and Chicken House Publishing and decided to showcase them in a blog post to give you some recommendations. 


Buffy: The High School Years - Parental Parasite 




I have always loved Buffy as a TV show but have never ventured out to the graphic novels so when I saw this in the post I quite literally beamed. This particular story is set during Season one of the show and follows Buffy as she is caught skipping school to slay and so her mother vows to keep a closer eye on her. But when Joyce becomes hypnotized by a demon, it is up to Betty to save her.


The Complete Sabrina the Teenage Witch: Volume 1



Upon opening this package, my childhood came flooding back. Archie comics were all the rage when I was younger and having the whole collection in one volume was a genius move by the publishers as I had never read them in order. There are cameos from Archie, Betty and Veronica in the stories that primarily follow Sabrina Spellman who discovers she has magic powers. This is  a great comedic and lighthearted bind up of comics that I can't wait to dip into when I would like a quick read.


Josie and the Pussycats Volume 1



I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS ONE. If you have been watching Riverdale on the CW (or on Netflix in the UK) you know exactly how epic Josie and the Pussycats are as a band. This bind up follows their journey as they try to make it in the music world, it's a retelling of their origin story so to speak. The volume also includes an issue from the Jughead Volume 2 graphic novel with an appearance from Sabrina the Teenage Witch, so yes please to having Cole Sprouse (who plays Jughead on Riverdale) in my head while reading this!


The Fandom by Anna Day



I have been anticipating this publication ever since it was announced. This book should be on the tbr's of anyone that belongs to a fandom. In a way, it brings to life what we all low-key wish to happen and that is for our favorite fictional worlds to become a reality. The novel follows Violet who is going to Comic Con in the hopes of encountering the stars of the movie, The Gallows Dance. After getting transformed into the movie's fantasy world, it is up to them to put the plot back on track and get out in time.


They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera 


Upon seeing this I was so very close to passing out. This is one of my most anticipated books of the year and having it in my hands is the most incredible feeling. It follows Mateo and Rufus who both receive a phone-call from Death-Cast telling them they will die in one day. They must now live a lifetime in a single day. I have heard amazing things about this book thus far and I am ready to get my heart broken! 

Those are the books I received this week, I hope you got some interesting recommendations as there is a huge range of genres! Don't forget to comment below what books you have recently bought, I'd love to know.
