February Book Haul ~ 2018


Look at all those gorgeous books! Yep, February was a pretty solid book buying month for me and I picked up quite a few new releases as well as some backlist titles I needed for my shelf.

The first bunch were some of my highly anticipated titles as preorders of The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton, Shadowsong by S. Jae Jones, and The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang arrived.¬† I also couldn’t wait any longer for Sightwitch by Susan Dennard so I popped in store to buy it.

I took advantage of Barnes and Noble’s online 3 for $30 YA sale and bought Hunted by Meagan Spooner, The Defiant by Lesley Livingston, Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia, and Dear Martin by Nic Stone.

Rounding out the month I popped into B&N for Daughter of the Siren Queen by Tricia Levenseller and Blood of a Thousand Stars by Rhoda Belleza and my preorder of Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston arrived too.

Did you pick up or receive any awesome books this month?

January Book Haul ~ 2018


I’m starting 2018 with possibly my smallest book haul to date. Is this the start of something new? Let’s be real, probably not (and now I have the HSM song in my head), but I’m glad I had some self control at least for one month.

Starting with the new releases I purchased Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu, Love, Hate & Other Filters by Samira Ahmed, The Cruel Prince (Barnes & Noble Exclusive Edition) by Holly Black, and Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson. I also received another copy of The Cruel Prince in my Owlcrate with a super exclusive cover. The only other book I bought, The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black, was at my library book sale for only fifty cents.

Did you pick up any books in January? Any titles I need to put on my list?

December Book Haul ~ 2017


Oh look. The Christmas season made my book haul explode. Don’t let that picture fool you.

As far as new releases in December I picked up The Rebels of Gold by Elise Kova, The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden, Ever the Brave by Erin Summerill, and Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills which came in this month’s OwlCrate. I also picked up the illustrated Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and my preorder of Chainbreaker by Tara Sim came early.

For TBTB Secret Santa I received Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee, Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire, and an arc of The Epic Crush of Genie Lo by F.C. Yee. I also got The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows during my book club Christmas celebration.

Of course I got sucked in to another Book Outlet sale and picked up eight books. I got Radio Silence by Alice Oseman, Saints & Misfits by S.K. Ali, Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson, The Reader by Traci Chee, Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire, Internet Famous by Danika Stone, The Gauntlet by Karuna Riazi, and Legend: The Graphic Novel by Marie Lu.

November Book Haul ~ 2017


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


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?

September Book Haul ~ 2017


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.

I got The Girl with the Red Balloon by Katherine Locke, Warcross by Marie Lu, Night of Cake & Puppets by Laini Taylor, Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff, Shadowhouse Fall By Daniel Jose Older, An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson, Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco, The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo, A Poison Dark and Drowning by Jessica Cluess, and The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken. Not pictured is Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows which I received in my Owlcrate.

Did you pick up any titles in September?

August Book Haul ~ 2017


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?
