Behold all the books!
This haul wouldn’t have been this large if I had just avoided my library’s book sale. Kind of hard when I’m constantly there working though. From the aforementioned sale I picked up The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, Belzhar, The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender, Black Dove White Raven, Lips Touch, and Egg & Spoon. At least I didn’t break the bank on these. Only $1.80 for all six.
All my other purchases were May releases that I just had to have. So Noteworthy, The Farmer’s War, and A Court of Wings and Ruin were all from the beginning of the month. Then came The Crown’s Fate, Flame in the Mist, and Lord of Shadows. All in all and excellent purchase month.
Have you picked up any of these titles? Frequent library book sales?

Well if this picture doesn’t say it all, April got out of hand. I didn’t have many new releases to pick up which must have made me think I could just buy a ton of other titles. I could barely pick the stack up and it’s even missing a book.
The main culprit was Book Outlet and one of their infamous sales. I picked up Bloodline, The Rise of the Empire, Blackhearts, Summer Days & Summer Nights, Scythe, What Light, Written in the Stars, and Little Women. I also got my UK edition of Strange the Dreamer from Book Depository.
The Edge of the Abyss and Shadow Run came from Barnes & Noble. I picked up the Target exclusive edition of Alex, Approximately on a whim and rounded out the month with American Gods from a secondhand shop. Not pictured is The Upside of Unrequited from my OwlCrate box.
So did you pick up any great books in April? Let me know in the comments below!
Well book buying in March got a little out of hand. I’ve got quite the stack thanks to new releases and an author event. Let’s start the extra copy of A Gathering of Shadows, The Archived, The Unbound, and the random Shadowshaper which were all purchased at Joseph-Beth Booksellers at the Victoria Schwab signing. That seems so long ago.
Next I got The Hate U Give, Queens of Geek, and the Hogwarts Library collection from B&N. Then Daughter of the Pirate King came in my March OwlCrate. I picked up The Princess Saves Herself In This One from Target.
This last group were some of my most anticipated titles of the year. Both Strange the Dreamer and A Crown of Wishes came from B&N and The Song Rising came courtesy of Book Depository after a preorder debacle.
So have you read any of these titles? Anything new catch your eye from my stack? Let me know in the comments below!
So far this year I’ve been pretty restrained in not buying all the new releases that come out each month. I’ve been checking out a bunch of debuts from the library to make sure I like them before purchasing and this has helped cut back. Still a solid list of books for February.
I picked up Traveler by L.E. DeLano, The Prince’s Rogue by Elise Kova, and Wires & Nerve by Marissa Meyer with a B&N gift card. I got The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden and Beauty and the Beast illustrated by MinaLima on a 2 for $30 sale. After I finished reading my library copy I bought Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza. I got a US edition of Caraval by Stephanie Garber in my OwlCrate and I picked up a used UK HC of The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern off Abe Books. The most exciting book of the month I picked up was A Conjuring of Light, one preorder and one in store purchase. I can never have enough Victoria Schwab books.
So did you pick up any awesome books this month? Let me know in the comments below!
I am so freaking proud of myself for keeping my January Haul so small! I started off the year with my first three preorders: Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken, Windwitch by Susan Dennard, and The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova.
The other two titles I bought using gift cards. The Secret of a Heart Note by Stacey Lee from Barnes & Noble and then Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers from The Strand.
Plus my January FairyLoot arrived with a UK edition of Caraval by Stephanie Garber and How to Think Like Sherlock. I’m so happy to have the clock variant!
So what books did you pick up this month? Any I need to check out?
Despite how it looks I was actually really good about not buying books this month. Thanks to some wonderful family and friends I was blessed with a bunch of amazing gifts and cannot wait to add them to my shelves.
Let’s start with my own purchases in Reindeer Boy by Cassandra Jean and The Crown’s Dog by Elise Kova. Two books I knew I just had to have. I also got Of Fire and Stars in the December Owlcrate. Next up, my book club girls gifted me with Let Me Tell You by Shirley Jackson and Mechanique by Genevieve Valentine. Continue reading
November definitely became the month of random book purchases but thankfully most of them were ones I’ve already read and needed to own. My one preorder, Timekeeper by Tara Sim, came in and it is so freaking gorgeous. I also won my book of choice from Joey at Thoughts and Afterthoughts so I picked A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess. I even bought a movie scrapbook for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
