January Haul!

JANUARY IS FINALLY ALMOST OVER!

I swear this month has felt like the longest month every. I always feel like the month of January goes so slow every year – and then the next 11 months fly by. This month I acquired a good amount of books, mostly using Christmas gift cards, but still including the usual subscription box book. I still have some gift card money left, which I plan to put into pre-orders that I’m really excited about. Outside of that, I’m really planning on cutting down my spending on books!

October Haul!

Hello Friends! Welcome to my October Haul. I actually abided by my book buying ban for once and did not buy any books! The books you see above were sent in monthly subscriptions boxes or a special edition box that I ordered awhile ago – which I’m not counting as breaking my ban! Because I make the rules!!

SUBSCRIPTION BOXES

  1. There Will Come a Darkness (The Age of Darkness #1) – Katy Rose Pool (Shelflove Crate)
  2. Crier’s War (Crier’s War #1) – Nina Varela (OwlCrate #1)
  3. I Hope You Get This Message – Farah Naz Rishi (OwlCrate #2)

SPECIAL EDITION BOX

  1. Capturing the Devil (Stalking Jack the Ripper #4) – Kerri Maniscalco (FaeCrate)

BIRTHDAY

I also got one book as a birthday present (not pictured) from my lovely boyfriend!

  1. The Girl The Sea Gave Back – Adrienne Young

I hope you all got a bunch of great books this month! I’ll be back tomorrow with an October Wrap-Up of all my reads!

Happy reading, bookish friends! 🙂

June Haul

Hi friends! I had a much smaller haul this month than I did in May. I somehow managed to be more conscious of my bank account (even though I technically was on a buying ban and shouldn’t have gotten any!) In my defense, two of these were from book boxes and three were purchased as a gift from my father! In reality, I really only bought two books, which is a huge improvement!!

Okay, so below is my breakdown!

BOOK BOXES:

My June OwlCrate and ShelfLove Crate arrived this month.

  1. Sorcery of Thorns – Margert Rogerson (exclusive cover)
  2. The Kingdom – Jess Rothenberg (artwork on reverse of dust jacket)

FROM POPS:

I went on vacation earlier this month with my dad, and I text him while I was packing my suitcase and told him I wasn’t sure my luggage would be under the weight restriction because of the books I was bringing (mostly kidding). But he told me if I left a few at home he would replace them in San Diego, so I got three books out of the deal! Score!

  1. Malice – John Gwynne
  2. The City of Brass – S. A. Chakraborty
  3. Strange the Dreamer – Laini Taylor

AMAZON:

I decided after reading an ARC of Call It What You Want that I needed to preorder it, and I needed more in my cart to get the free shipping – so of course I had to get another book too!

  1. A Thousand Perfect Notes – C. G. Drews (aka Paper Fury)
  2. Call It What You Want – Brigid Kemmerer

Tell me if you got any of these books, or have read any! And tune in tomorrow for my June Wrap Up post!

Happy reading, friends!

May Haul

So… I got a lot of books this month! I did such a good job last month of not really buying books, that of course I had to make up for it?? I swear my boyfriend is going to leave me one of these days if I keep coming home with Barnes and Noble’s bags full of books! Honestly, I have no space for extra books but do you see that stopping me? No ma’am! My next plan is to buy a TBR cart like those I’ve seen on Bookstagram – only when I went to buy one at Target they were out. Womp Womp.

So here’s my breakdown of my book acquisitions for this month:

BOOK BOXES:

My April and May ShelfLove Crates, May OwlCrate, Finale Special Edition OwlCrate, and Fox and Wit Kingsbane box came this month.

  1. Wicked Saints – Emily A. Duncan (artwork on reverse of dust jacket)
  2. We Hunt The Flame – Hafsah Faizal (exclusive cover)
  3. Romanov – Nadine Brandes (exclusive cover)
  4. We Hunt The Flame – (exclusive ARC cover on the reverse of dust jacket)
  5. Finale – Stephanie Garber (exclusive cover)
  6. Kingsbane – Claire Legrand (sprayed edges)

FROM LE BOYF:

The boyf picked up a book for me (totally without being asked…right…) this month and he chose…

  1. Scythe – Neal Shusterman

Let me know in the comments if you picked up any of these this month, or if you’ve read any of these! I’ve already read a few, which I’ll talk more about in my May Wrap Up post coming tomorrow!
