The Gilded Pages Book Haul

I’m amazed at how a few years ago I convinced myself to not buy physical books anymore and now I’ve bought quite a few over the last few months. How things change!

Just wanted to share some of the books I got during February and March. And since a few of those books have gilded pages I’ve officially dubbed this the Gilded Pages Book Haul. There are a few very special ones in this haul!

1. The Elric Saga (Books 1-6) by Michael Moorcock

I was introduced to this series by collectiblesciencefiction who sells vintage paperbacks of sci-fi and fantasy books. I had never heard of this series and when I saw he was selling these cool paperbacks of Book 2, 3 and 5 I looked up this series and decided I had to have the rest in the series (with the matching covers of course). I went on over to AbeBooks and fortunately, I was able to track them all own.

2. A Conjuring of Light by VE Schwabb

Weird how I bought book 2 and later book 3 first and haven’t even bought the first book in the series yet!

3. The Girl from the Other Side Vol 2, 3 and 4

Volume 1 of this book was my first manga and I plan on continuing this series. Will do a review about it at some point.

Gilded pages everywhere!

4. The Red Fairy Book by Andrew Lang published by the Folio Society

This one I was excited about! Ok so technically this one isn’t really gilded but it kind of still counts. I had heard so many good things about these editions and the artwork is stunning. I’ve been wanting a Folio Society fairy book for about a year and I finally got my hands on one! The quality of this book is amazing!

4. Mistborn/The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson- Dragonsteel edition

Mistborn I’d been coveting for about a year as well. Around Christmas time WoA came out and I crossed my fingers hoping it wouldn’t run out and I could get them both. Thank the Lord Ruler I was able to get my hands on these. Really great quality, awesome endpapers, artwork with gold gilding on the edges of the book.

I’ll most definitely do a review on the Mistborn and FS fairy books in the future.

5. Royal Assassin and Assassin’s Quest by Robin Hobb- 20th-anniversary edition

Processed with VSCO with a5 presetI’ve been meaning to start the Farseer trilogy for awhile so now I can read it in style with these 20th-anniversary editions with silver gilded pages and some great artwork.

See anything you like? 

Have you read any Moorcock books?

Stay tuned for my UK Book Haul! Two words…folio society!

  1. Man, you buy some of the best looking books!
    I’ve read a bunch of Moorcock’s Eternal Champion series. Some were much better than others, but I enjoyed them all.
    The Corum books (6) and the Elric books (6 and I ignored all the other ones that came after the original 6) were my favorite though.
