Signed Book Haul!
This is quite an unusual post for me to write, because I don't think I've ever done one of these posts before, but in that last couple of months I've somehow collected quite a few signed books. I have a total of 5 books to mention below; 2 of these are preorders and then the other 3 I bought in Waterstones Piccadilly when I went to London at the end of October.
Anyway, let's get into the book haul...
The first of the signed preorders I got recently was Girl Online: Going Solo by Zoe Sugg, which is the third book in the Girl Online trilogy.
I know there is a lot of controversy going around about this series, specifically the first book, but I did enjoy the first book and thought I'd at least give the other two a go. I am also a subscriber of Zoe, so I was obviously going to give the series a go.
I loved the first book and do own the second book, but haven't yet read it, but I saw a signed copy of the third book on WHSMITH and just had to preorder it.
I'm hoping to continue on with this series this month/early next year.
Incase you don't know what this series is about I'll leave a Goodreads link to the first book.

The second signed preorder I made was for Username: Regenerated by Joe Sugg, the sequel to Username: Evie.
If you didn't already know Joe is Zoe's sister and is also a youtuber that I watch, so when Username: Evie was released I did purchase it, but just havent yet read it.
This was also a signed preorder through WHSMITH and so I just had to get it. I'm also hoping to read this series this month or early next year and because they're graphic novels, they shouldn't take me too long to get through.
If you don't know what the series is about, I'll leave a Goodreads link below for the first book.

The first signed book I picked up at Waterstones Piccadilly is Remix by Non Pratt. I'd wanted to read this book for so long, so when I saw a signed copy I just had to get it.
Near where I live, I don't find signed copies too often in store, so you can imagine I got quite excited when I saw quite a lot of signed books in this Waterstones. Plus it was something like a 5 floor store as well. 5 whole floors full of books. I was in literal heaven, no joke. If you ever get the chance to go into that store, I really suggest that you do.
Anyway, I'm not too sure what this book is about because I've forgotten, but I'll include a copy of the synopsis below.
From the author of Trouble comes a new novel about boys, bands and best mates.
Kaz is still reeling from being dumped by the love of her life... Ruby is bored of hearing about it. Time to change the record.
Three days. Two best mates. One music festival. Zero chance of everything working out.
I'm not sure when I'll read this, but I'm really looking forward to when I do.

The next book I picked up was The Map of Bones by Francesca Haig, which has a bit of a story behind it.
When I picked it up I had a feeling it might be a sequel to something, but I read the synopsis and it had no mention of a previous book or that it was a sequel, It sounded really interesting, so I purchased it.
When I got back home, I searched it up on Goodreads and it turns out it is the sequel to The Fire Sermon.
I'm not sure when I'll read this book because I'm going to have to find/borrow a copy of the first book, The Fire Sermon first.

The last signed book I got recently was Saint Death by Marcus Sedgwick. This was the third and final book I got when in Waterstones Piccadilly.
I've read quite a few of Marcus Sedgwick's books (mainly from the library) and I've come to love his writing a lot. When this book first came out I didn't really know much and didn't really think about buying it. Though, because he is one of my favourite authors I just had to pick it up when I saw a signed copy, so I'm very happy that I found this and can't wait to read it.
Here's the synopsis:
A potent, powerful and timely thriller about migrants, drug lords and gang warfare set on the US/Mexican border by prize-winning novelist, Marcus Sedgwick.
Anapra is one of the poorest neighbourhoods in the Mexican city of Juarez - twenty metres outside town lies a fence - and beyond it - America - the dangerous goal of many a migrant. Faustino is one such trying to escape from the gang he's been working for. He's dipped into a pile of dollars he was supposed to be hiding and now he's on the run. He and his friend, Arturo, have only 36 hours to replace the missing money, or they're as good as dead. Watching over them is Saint Death. Saint Death (or Santissima Muerte) - she of pure bone and charcoal-black eye, she of absolute loyalty and neutral morality, holy patron to rich and poor, to prostitute and narco-lord, criminal and police-chief. A folk saint, a rebel angel, a sinister guardian.
