November Book Haul ~ 2017

568A8A5D-327A-42B8-A203-3953A8376F06

November was a hefty month on the buying front. With collector’s editions being released and Black Friday shopping, I knew this would make for a massive haul. I’m still waiting for a package so the stack above may look small. Don’t let it fool you.

I picked up quite a few special editions this month including the B&N A Darker Shade of Magic, the City of Bones 10th Anniversary edition, and B&N hardcover edition of The Princess Saves Herself In This One which is signed. I also grabbed some new releases in Renegades, The City of Brass, Into the Black, and The Mortal Instruments graphic novel. Plus the OwlCrate book of the month was The Glass Spare.

I managed to snag eight titles in the Book Outlet Black Friday sale. Hopefully Lost Stars, Radiance, The Girl Who Raced Fairyland All the Way Home, The Refrigerator Monologues, The Valiant, Tiger Lily, The Artifact Vault, and The Invasion of the Tearling will arrive at my house soon.

Did you pick up any books in November? Have you read any of the titles I mentioned?

October Book Haul ~ 2017

C7911230-6750-4CB1-874C-3D4DFF425A6F

While I thought October would be a heavy haul month, it turns out I reined myself in. I ended up waiting to purchase a couple of things so I’ve only got five books this time around. Don’t worry though, I”m sure November will end up being way more.

My first purchases were The Tiger’s Daughter by K. Arsenault Rivera and 27 Hours by Tristina Wright. I read these two as ARCs and knew I needed them on my shelf. Next up was Turtles All the Way Down by John Green which I preordered pretty quickly after it’s release announcement. It’s been too long between his books but I was so happy with how this one turned out. This month’s OwlCrate book was Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore and while the whole box was fabulous this book is absolutely phenomenal. All of her books are. Last but not least is the collector’s edition of A Darker Shade of Magic by Victoria Schwab. I bought both the black and silver ones but I’m still waiting on B&N.

What books did you haul in October? Anything you would recommend me?

Fall release season is upon us and my wallet is already suffering. Just look at that stack! Some of these were even bought with gift cards and it still feels like a lot.

Not pictured is Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows which I received in my Owlcrate.

August Book Haul ~ 2017

IMG_5272

Honestly this might be the first month all year I actually have a small haul. August didn’t have many new releases and most of the books I received were in subscription boxes.

First up was The Hearts We Sold by Emily Lloyd Jones and a beautiful copy of Sleepy Hollow in the August Owlcrate. These are definitely reads I plan to dive into later this fall. Next came the UK edition of Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo and a UK ARC of Nyxia by Scott Reintgen in my Illumicrate box.

The only other books I picked up were my preorder of the US edition of Wonder Woman and a paperback copy of Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova.

How did you fare this August? Any titles I need on my shelf?

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?
