I’ve been pretty good about not buying books this month, but I did get a few. I got really awesome deals on all of these, so I actually didn’t spend too much money on them. I decided to divide the post into sections, physical, e-books, etc. Onto the books!
My pre-orders (first four below) were on ridiculous sale at the time I pre-ordered, so I got them for $10 or under! The last three I got for $2-3 each (Book Outlet & Goodwill)!
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman
Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy
The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich
The Brilliant Light of Amber Sunrise by Matthew Crow
The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski
Fallen by Lauren Kate
I have an ARC of The Brilliant Light of Amber Sunrise, but I couldn’t pass up $2.99 for the hardcover. I wasn’t sure I ever wanted to read Fallen, but I seen it at Goodwill for $2 and decided to just get it. Same for The Winner’s Curse; I wasn’t sure I ever wanted to read the book, but it was so cheap on BO. Sorry for the glare, I took the pictures at my sister’s and she had bad lighting in her room, so I used flash.
Fablehaven by Brandon Mull
Technically, Fablehaven isn’t mine, but I decided to include it in this post. My younger sister has the complete series, so she let me borrow the first book to try out. I’ll probably try to read it before the year ends. We did a book trade. I let her borrow Fallen and she let me borrow Fablehaven.
Shelbie from Lu-Lu’s Rants & Reads and I have become really great friends this year, which has been awesome. She sent me a package this month, which had a few books in it and some other awesome goodies!
Here are the things she sent to me:
There’s a page I colored from the coloring book she sent me. I’ve been really wanting to read Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour, so I was excited that she sent it to me. I really wanted to read The Great Gatsby as well. I did end up reading it in September and sadly didn’t like it as much as I hoped I would. Still glad I got it though and I can say I read it. I plan to check out the movie sometime.
I was also able to get a few more e-books this month, which I am excited about. Below are the other e-books I bought and you can check the e-books I got in the beginning of this month over here.
These were all on sale and I decided to get Library of Souls in e-book version, because I have my others in the series in e-book and my older sister read the series and uses my Kindle account. I knew she would want to read Library of Souls right away. I am currently making her read The Knife of Never Letting Go, because it tore me apart and I knew she would like it and I need someone to talk to about this book. She’ll also hate me for making her read it, because that book will emotionally drain you and tear your heart apart a million times.
I didn’t go too crazy this month, which was a good thing; compared to last month when I got 70 books! I’ve had so much going on this month and really couldn’t afford it. I probably won’t be buying too many books the rest of the year, actually. Christmas is around the corner and no one ever knows what to get me, so I’ll probably just ask for books this year. Also, with everything that has happened this month; I can’t really afford to go crazy spending on books like I usually do. I’ll probably stick to my pre-orders for the month of October and maybe a few books here and there the rest of the year. Stay tuned for my wrap up post and my Halloween TBR this week.
Have you read any of the books that I got? If so, let me know! And let me know what books you got this month. Link me to your book haul posts if you have one! 🙂 .
Apparently, this is my 200th post! I hope you had a great weekend! I am determined to finish The Water Travelers today, so I am off to read. BYE! ❤
