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.
I thought this month might be intense on the book buying front but it was pretty par for the course for me. Most of the purchases happened near the end of the month courtesy of my trip to NYC.
The first couple of books I purchased were all new releases. I bought When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McClemore immediately upon release. I also needed copies of Fear the Drowning Deep by Sarah Glenn Marsh and the illustrated Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Continue reading
Fall always brings a ridiculous amount of releases which also means I end up with a lot of new shiny books on my shelf. September was definitely a doozy but I’m happy with all the purchases I made.
At the beginning of the month I ordered a few books online from Barnes & Noble. I completed my Winner’s Trilogy collection finally getting The Winner’s Crime. I also picked up two new releases in Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi and Tales of the Peculiar by Ransom Riggs. Continue reading
