Despite the pictures, August wasn’t that bad of a book buying month for me. I was on vacation at the end of July and kind of went a bit crazy with books. I also got a few in bookish boxes and downloaded four ebooks. It’s really a compilation from all different places. Thankfully this haul’s not too awful on my TBR and bookshelves!
Let’s start with those end of July purchases. I got The Scorpio Races to complete an Amazon order and I’m dying to read my next Maggie Stiefvater book. I hear it’s an excellent fall read. I visited two indie bookstores in Traverse City and picked up Map of Fates and The School for Good and Evil. Rounding that out is of course Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
My must have August release was Nevernight by Jay Kristoff and I preordered it online and devoured it upon arrival. It was my top pick of the month! I also ordered a couple of subscription boxes, OwlCrate and Illumicrate. P.S. I Like You was the OwlCrate pick and it sounds so freaking cute. Illumicrate included two books, The Graces by Laure Eve and the U.K. edition of Nevernight which is stunning!
Apparently I now frequently download ebooks since I ended up with four this month. I’ve heard tons of stuff about The Foxhole Court on Tumblr and took the plunge when it was free on Nook. I also grabbed Right of First Refusal when it was on sale. The last two are upcoming releases, Timekeeper and The Alchemists of Loom.
So what did you pick up in August? Did we buy any of the same titles? Let me know in the comments below!
