July Book Haul ~ 2017

IMG_4920

Look it’s another monthly book haul! I thought I’d have a quieter buying month but that stack tells a decidedly different story. I suppose it could be worse though.

First up I received The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee in July’s OwlCrate. I also picked up Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody from Unicorn Crate. My only preorder for the month was The Dragons of Nova by Elise Kova which I’m thrilled to have a finished copy of.

I also picked up all three of the new editions of the Shadow and Bone trilogy. Look at them all their glory! My other two purchases, Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai and Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor, are new to me authors but I’m delighted to have them on my TBR.

Did you pick up any titles in July? Read any of my purchases?

June Book Haul ~ 2017

IMG_4538

As you can see, June got a little out of hand. What with vacations, a Book Outlet sale, and a certain anniversary, I just couldn’t help myself!

First up let’s talk recent releases. When Dimple Met Rishi and Lord of Shadows have made their way onto my shelves and Roar came in my ShelfLoveCrate for this month. My must haves though were Our Dark Duet and Want.

I tried really hard not to get sucked in but Book Outlet pulled my purse strings once again. I picked up Goldenhand, Wanderlost, Cruel Beauty, and books two and three of The School for Good and Evil series, A World Without Princes and The Last Ever After.

On my two vacations I hit up a couple independent bookstores. In TC I purchased Ramona Blue, Kindred Spirits, and Geekerella while in KC I bought Song of the Current. And of course I couldn’t help but order all four Bloomsbury anniversary editions of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

What did you pick up in June? Did you have more self control than me?

May Book Haul ~ 2017

IMG_4012

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?

April Book Haul ~ 2017

IMG_3658

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!

March Book Haul ~ 2017

IMG_3408

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!

February Book Haul ~ 2017

img_2965

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!

January Book Haul ~ 2017

img_2688

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?
