I was doing an amazing job with not buying books in June and then I went pretty much the first half of July with only spending about $11 on books at Goodwill (book haul post over here). WELL….I don’t know what happened to my doing good, because I ended up buying some books! YIKES! This book haul will be a mix of physical books, pre-orders, and e-books. I went a little crazy with e-book buying as well, because there were so many on sale and the price was just TOO right to not “one-click buy”, sigh. These are books I have gotten throughout second half of July. I don’t think I will be buying anymore books this month, so I am calling this my July book haul. They will all be linked to Goodreads; onto the books!
The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker
More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera
Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway
Denton Little’s Deathdate by Lance Rubin
A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
I’ve been dying for More Happy Than Not and Emmy & Oliver, so I was finally able to get them! I can’t wait to dive into them! I am also really looking forward to The Witch Hunter. I’ve been eyeballing the other three every single time I go to Target and I finally decided to just get them! I also got these cute little magnetic bookmarks as well!
The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini
Paladin by Sally Slater
Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
Map to the Stars by Jen Malone
Blood of My Blood by Barry Lyga
Hey Sunshine by Tia Giacalone
Freak of Nature by Julia Crane
The Last Knight by Nicola S. Dorrington
Hollywood Witch Hunter by Valerie Tejeda
I had to get Blood of My Blood, because the Jasper Dent (I Hunt Killers) series is just so amazing! I plan to buy the physical copies of the entire series in the future, for sure! I haven’t read The Iron King yet, but The Iron Daughter was on sale for $0.99, so I couldn’t pass it up. I am also really excited about these other books too and they were ranging in price from Free-$2.99 at the time that I purchased them, some may still be in this price range today.
I have this system regarding when I choose to buy e-books and when I choose to buy the physical books. If it’s a book that I do want to read (or on the fence about wanting to read), but I don’t see myself actually wanting to spend the extra money for the physical copy, then I will get the e-book. Also, if it’s a book that I want to read right away, then I will get the e-book and purchase the physical copy later.
Pre-Ordered Physical Books:
Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman
I pre-ordered all of these books because the pricing was below $10! I could not pass that up, because I am guaranteed the lower price once the items are available to ship! These are some of the books that I am most anticipating this year, so I am excited. I found out this week that Disney is making Dumplin’ into a movie, AHHHH! I am so excited about that and I haven’t even read the book yet! I read an eARC for Everything, Everything and I have to own it!
Super stoked about all of these books! Let me know in the comments if you’ve read any of these books and what you thought about them!
