July 2019 Book Haul

The mountains are yearning.

I’ve been doing really well on my book buying lately which is something that I’m really proud of. I’m hoping to get to these soon but I’m such a mood reader that it could go either way. Most of these are sequels too.

Paper and Fire
by Rachel Caine

I picked this up from Half Price Books that day I was stuck in Tacoma for 8 hours, This was about 5 dollars and I figured why not.

The Midnight Queen
by Slyvia Izzo Hunter

Another Half Price books deal, I had been eyeing this book at Barnes and Noble for a while because the cover is just so beautiful and there’s a school setting that sounds like something I am going to enjoy. Again, why not?

The Dazzling Heights
by Katherine McGee

The Thousandth Floor leaves you on such a massive cliffhanger that I needed to get my hands on this right away and now that all my readathons are over I can start this really soon.

Grey Sister
by Mark Lawrence

I needed this after finishing Red Sister and I’m hoping to get to it soon.

Assassins Creed Odyssey
by Gordon Doherty

This was such an impulse buy but I love love love this video game, I honestly can’t get enough. I’ve logged in 72 hours of gameplay. That should tell you how addicted I am. So I had to get this and I’m hoping to really like it so I can check out the other novelizations.

 

A Recent Book Haul

The mountains are yearning.

This is my “YAY you survived getting snowed in and cabin fever” book haul. This book haul is basically what I did the very moment I was able to pull out of my driveway. I had been snowed in and stuck at my house for 6 days I had been able to drive somewhere on a Saturday and then I was stuck until the following Thursday. That’s a long time to be stuck at home and I’m usually a self-described hermit but take away my option to leave and I was bouncing off the walls.

After I dropped my bf off at work I went straight to Barnes and Noble and instantly felt my irritation and stress melt away like the snow should do, but no its still here! I was planning to get maybe two or three books but it was like a damn broke and suddenly I couldn’t bring myself to walk away from a single one of these books.

There a devilish voice in my head talking about how we deserve these books after all the stress we went through being snowed in and having all of our plans canceled on us, we missed out on seeing a kitten because of the snow so that means we deserve all of these books! Right? Probably not but its too late to really do anything about it now. I had also been wanting to go to Barnes and Noble before I got snowed in so this book buying feeling had been building in me for the entire week I was stuck in my house.

I never thought I would do: Unhaul

Yes, this is my unhaul. For the last few weeks, I’ve been doing a lot of spring cleaning. I’ve donated three big bags of clothes, shoes, purses, and I’ve just been trying to really downsize the amount of clutter that’s going on in my room right now.

20170319_202856

But I didn’t think that getting rid of any of my books was going to be happening but over the weekend I found myself thinking about some the books I had and I just wasn’t sure why I was hoarding them. It’s not like I was ever going to reread them and why am I holding onto books that I didn’t even like?

I knew that if I didn’t start gathering these books together now that I was never going to, in fact, I’m already starting to doubt myself over some of the books listed below…

A Classical Book Haul

20161231_090812An ongoing goal of mine is to expand/grow my classic literature collection. Classics are a genre that I lack having read the most in yet I have the biggest desire to explore more into.

a goal I have for 2017 is to read more in three different categories
Classic Literature
Banned Books
Feminist Literature

Thanks to Thrift Books and Barnes and Nobles “Buy 2 get 1 free” on their classic editions, my classic book collection is starting to grow 🙂
Btw, if you’re wanting to expand your classic books for cheap then I recommend checking out Thriftbooks most of their classics are pretty cheap and in an acceptable condition. Thriftbooks also has something called Thrift Deals of “buy 2 for $7, buy 3 for $10, or buy 4 for $12” and if you’re in the US and spend over 10 dollars then your order qualifies for free shipping.

September Haul

20160929_214405

You know what really sucks?

Right now I’m looking at that photo up there ^ and realizing that I forgot to add in two books. That kind of annoys me. I thought I was well prepared too, but I guess those books just flew under the radar.

Oh well, nothing I can do about it now but just use your imagination and pretend they’re there…pretty please? With a cherry on top?

September was a decent buying month for me. I bought a couple books that I had been wanting, some I had been anticipating, and others were really cheap and I just couldn’t pass them up.

September was originally dedicated to catching up on series month, well I hit a massive reading slump! I couldn’t get interested in anything for the life of me, so now that I am motivated to read, at least for the time being, October will be my catch up on reading month.

Let’s get on to my haul!

So many books.

Because of this, I am dedicating September to catching up on series since I bought a lot of books that are books 2 and 3 of a trilogy. So I really want to focus on completing some series.

The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

Last year I read Since You’ve Been Gone (and shamelessly listened to Kelly Clarkson for almost all of it) and really enjoyed Matson’s writing, also I had heard good things about this one so I thought I would pick this one up. I already read this and I really liked it.

20160630_202838
I had to do it.

The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan
The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan
The House of Hades by Rick Riordan
The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan

The Trails of Apollo by Rick Riordan

I saw this at Walmart and couldn’t resist picking up, if only for the sole reason that it had an exclusive bookmark in it! Yeah that happened. I was holding it in the store and thinking to myself, I cant read this until I read the Heroes of Olympus series, I don’t own the Heroes of Olympus series, if I buy this I’m going to have to buy the Heroes of Olympus. Then thought to myself…oh well. This way of thinking is why I’m pretty much always broke.

Voyager by Diana Gabaldon
I am almost finished with Dragonfly in Amber and I have a deal worked out to where I read one Outlander book and buy the next one.


Ruined by Amy Tintera
Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover
The Crowns Game by Evelyn Skye (I love her name!)
The Assassins Heart by Sarah Ahiers
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
Every Last Word By Tamara Ireland Stone (Another awesome name!)
The Forbidden Orchid by Sharon Biggs Waller

For all of these…well the BF took me to Barnes and Noble, said that he wanted to treat me and I lost all self control…he’s an enabler.

The Darkest Magic by Morgan Rhodes

I had this on preorder to buy after I finished reading A Book of Spirits and Thieves and I am really excited to continue on with this series!
