Book Haul||December & LOTS MORE!



My first attempt at my December book haul post was a fail, because WordPress decided it would be fun to delete EVERYTHING I wrote and not save, sigh. I got quite a bit of books throughout the month of December, but happy to say that I didn’t spend too much money! I’ll get straight into the book haul.


The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick
Shattered Blue by Lauren Bird Horowitz

I bought the boyfriend The Man in the High Castle, but I will eventually read that one myself. I heard it’s really good and Amazon made a series out of it! Lauren (author of Shattered Blue) was nice enough to sign my copy of Shattered Blue for me! I love her so much, she’s so fun to talk to and her book was SOOO good. Forever recommend it! I plan to do a reread next month! She sent along some bookmarks and posters as well! A little surprise from Ninja (her dog) to my furbabies was a new beaver toy for Dax and catnip (with toy inside) for ColbyJack! That was so cute and thoughtful for Lauren to include them! They love the toys!

Book Outlet.

So I went a little bit book buying crazy on Book Outlet this month and ended up placing two pretty decent sized orders. One was actually purchased on black Friday, but I didn’t receive until the first week of December. That is the following books:

Far Far Away by Tom McNeal
Conversion by Katherine Howe
Lock In by John Scalzi
Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger
Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott
Love Fortunes and Other Disasters by Kimberly Karalius
The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han
Love and Other Perishable Items by Laura Buzo

My second Book Outlet purchase was because they had this little thing going on that if you spent $35 or more, you get a free Book Outlet bear. I NEEDED THAT BEAR! They also had the Jasper Dent series in hardcover, so that made it a little easier for me to finally click “check out”. It’s my new favorite series, so I needed to own the hardcovers! Here are the books from that purchase:

I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga
Game by Barry Lyga
Blood of My Blood by Barry Lyga
Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
Anything but Typical by Nora Raleigh Baskin
Freakboy by Kristin Elizabeth Clark
Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler
Ten by Gretchen McNeil

Me & my bear. 😛


Christmas & OwlCrate.

My new bestie, Shelbie from Lu-Lu’s Rants & Reads sent me an awesome Christmas package this month, which of course contained some books I really wanted! I was so stoked to get it and even more stoked for her to get hers from me! Besides the books below, it also had lots of socks (love socks), Supernatural magnet, nail polish, and a home library kit (which is so cool).


Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Pretties by Scott Westerfeld
Specials by Scott Westerfeld
Shattering Glass by Gail Giles

The boyfriend got me a couple books for Christmas this year, which I was so excited about. It was two that I really wanted, so that was exciting! Here are the books that he got me for Christmas.

The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle
Cut Both Ways by Carrie Mesrobian

He also got me three different Doctor Who Funkos (TARDIS, Fourth Doctor, and the Evolving Dalek Sec. I was so excited to get the evolving Dalek, because I really wanted that one so bad! He also got me socks. PS: The Doctor Who Christmas special was SOO good!


My December OwlCrate was pretty awesome this month! I haven’t really been let down from their monthly boxes though, so that’s a plus! Here is my OwlCrate and a list of the things that I received inside! The theme was: Get Inspired.


Da Vinci’s Tiger by L.M. Elliott

I have never heard of this book, but it sounds pretty interesting. The book came with little magnets with words on them, so that’ll be fun to create my own little sentences or as they said “poems”. The other things included were:

+ A “to do list” notepad from Boy Girl Party.
+ A candle from Frostbeard & it smells amazing!
+ A magnet from Sandra Vargas.
+ There was a little reading journal, which you put down the book you read and your thoughts on it. I thought that was cute. It also has quotes inside. I think mine is the one from Penguin. There was two options.


I may have went a little crazy with e-book buying again. I mean, it really could have been worse…I think. I tried not to look too hard this month for e-books. I guess I still got quite a bit though. I didn’t pay over $2.99 for these at the time except for one. So good deals! A few of these I may have gotten last month, but not sure if I included in past book haul posts. Here there are:

Court of Fives by Kate Elliott
The Bookseller by Cynthia Swanson
The Bureau of Time by Brett Michael Orr
Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby
Kissing in America by Margo Rabb
Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman

These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman
The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
On the Fence by Kasie West
Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes
Relentless by Karen Lynch

Misc. Things & More Christmas.

Cute bookmarks from Happy Hello Art. HELLO TACO CAT! “The Book is Always Better!” has Harry Potter, Katniss, and Hazel & Augustus Waters on it! I couldn’t pass up getting Clark Griswold when I seen him.

For Christmas I also got some new TOMS from my mom, Emoji pillows (the laughing crying one and the poop one) from my younger sister and aunt. I also got a bracelet from my older sister.

If you got through this entire post, then you’re amazing! Seriously, so amazing! December was a pretty good month as far as getting books and other little goodies along the way! I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and holiday! Feel free to link me to all of your book haul posts or Chrismas haul posts! I would love to see everything! 😀


I hope you have a great day! 🙂
