Book Haul|| April.


Hi! ๐Ÿ™‚

I was pretty good this month with not getting a ton of books! I’m proud of myself, because there are SO MANY BOOKS that I really want to buy. Last month’s haul was pretty insane compared to this one, lol.ย Here’s my April book haul…

Bang by Barry Lyga
Fireworks by Katie Cotugno (ARC)
The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

I’ve been dying to get my hands on Bang. It was one of my most anticipated books of the year. I’ll have my review linked at the end of the post.ย It sadly didn’t live completely up to my expectations and hopes. I also bought The Upside of Unrequited. I’m super stoked to have it, because I loved Simon VS so much. I won an ARC of Fireworks on Goodreads, which is exciting. I’ve enjoyed the other books from Katie Cotugno, so I’m looking forward to reading this one.


The Onyx Vial by Alexis Lampley

I got this book in my one-time Nerdy Post box. I’ll have my blog post linked down below if you want to see more about Nerdy Post and the boxes that I got this month; in case you missed it. I didn’t have a picture of it by itself, so I’m reusing this one. I can’t wait to dive into it, it sounds really good.


I may have possibly gone a little overboard with the e-book deals this month. I’ve been pretty good about not buying e-books lately, but this month I caved and got nine of them.


American Girls by Alison Umminger
Dreamology by Lucy Keating
Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow
Openly Straight by Bill Konigsberg
Asleep by Krystal Wad


Four Minutes by Barry Lyga
The Foxhole Court
by Nora Sakavic
The Raven King by Nora Sakavic
The King’s Men by Nora Sakavic

Netgalley eARCs:

I decided to request some books on Netgalley since it’s been awhile since I’ve done that. Here are a couple of the ones that I was approved for so far. I still have some other pending requests as well. I’ll be reading these two in May, so I can get my reviews up before they release.


Amish Guys Don’t Call by Debby Dodds
(releases June 13th)
One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus
(releases May 30th)

I read the first chapter of One of Us Is Lying and it’s pretty interesting. Not going to lie though, I’m nervous about all the multiple POVs. So far there is 3 POVs, but I’m thinking there is going to be at least four of them. I’m not a huge fan of books with a lot of POVs, but hopefully this one works for me. It gives off a little bit of a Breakfast Club vibe and I love that movie so much. Amish Guys Don’t Call sounds ย pretty good. I am also fascinated by the Amish for some reason, lol. I think it’ll be a fun YA contemporary read.

Have you read any of the books that I got in April? What are some of the books that you got this month? Feel free to link me to your haul posts, so I can check them out!

My April book haul wasn’t too crazy, so that’s good. Next month I’m only expecting to get two books. I have two pre-orders for May, but I don’t think I’ll be getting anything other than those two. BUT you never know. ๐Ÿ˜› I’ll have my wrap up post for the month of April posted on Monday.

In case you missed it;
Monthly Subscriptions|| April.
Thoughts|| Bang.

I hope you have a great day!

  1. Great haul! I need to read Becky Albertalli’s new novel ASAP, especially since I loved Simon… And I’ll get a copy of Bang soon even though it wasn’t as good as Jasper Dent. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I hope you will the ones you haven’t read so far!

  2. eeeeeek! nice haul Ashley! I really do hope you enjoy Upside, I’ll keep an eye out for your thoughts. I took a chill pill with the e-books this month but my physical book haul is ridic! I’m scared to even post it but in my defense a lot of it was gifted to me which is not something that usually happens lol. I’m going to be super late with my wrap-up/haul as usual smh lol. Ah! I’m def curious about Fireworks since I’ve never read anything from that author. The Onyx Vial has such a beautiful cover! *insert heart emoji face* Happy reading ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Thank you! I hope I love Upside too. I really loved Simon so much, so I’m excited to read Upside. I’ll make sure to post a review as soon as I read it. I’ve been so good all year with my ebook hauls. This month I went crazy again lol. I guess because I’m trying not to buy as many physical books and I had the urge to buy any kind of books to control the expensive hardcover ones haha.

      At least a lot of your haul was gifted to you! It’s not as bad then. Hahah. My March haul was kind of ridiculous, but luckily half was gifted to me too. Haha. I didn’t feel as guilty.

      • LOL, I can’t say no to a good e-book deal but I haven’t come across too many to catch my interest thank the Universe! It’s May 1st Ashley & I’ve already purchased 1 additional book in my BOTM box smh…I expect May to be tough for all bookworms, my pockets are already preparing for the attack haha! Happy reading ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Oooh what a great haul! I’m super excited for One Of Us Is Lying! And I really want to get my hands on The Upside of Unrequited. I have Simon Vs. on my TBR and I’m hoping to get to it really soon! ๐Ÿ˜Š
