March bookhaul

Because it was a stressful month I went a little overboard with buying books...

The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks
Bloodlines by Richelle Mead - This is the first book of a spin-off series of the Vampire Academy series that I read last year. I was never a big fan of Sydney Sage, who is the main character of Bloodlines (I believe), but since I enjoyed the other books so much I still want to give this series a go.
The Time Machine by H.G. Wells
Losing It by Cora Carmack - Another attempt at reading New Adult. I already read this one and you can read my review here.
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Ciudades de Papel [Paper Towns] by John Green - To improve my Spanish.
Pogingen iets van het leven te maken [Attempts to make something of life] by Hendrik Groen - This is not really a book that would normally pique my interest, the main character is a 83 year old man in a retirement home, but I read an excerpt that was just so funny that I had to pick this one up.
Saga Volume 1 by  Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples - My venture into graphic novels. I already read this one and you can read my review here.
Tales from Outer Suburbia by Shaun Tan - One of my favorite books of last year was The Arrival, so I have been meaning to read another book by Tan for a while. It looks gorgeous and I'm really excited to start it!

The Tiny book of Tiny Stories Volume 1 - I picked this book up because of its interesting concept. You can read more about it in my review.
Persuasion by Jane Austen - I've been wanting to read other books by Jane Austen besides Emma and Pride & Prejudice and these Vintage Classic editions are beautiful!
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
Tolkien: A Dictionary by David Day
Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk
Faerie Tales: Stories of the Grimm and Gruesome
The Last Leaves Falling by Sarah Benwell
Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
The Silmarrillion by J.R.R. Tolkien - I want to have all of Tolkien's books and when I saw this beautiful edition of The Silmarillion I could not leave it behind...

I have read 4 of these books and started another two, but I completely broke my rule of reading more in a month that I buy. Oh well, I'll try again in April...

What books did you aquire that you are excited about?
