Book Haul|| August.

bookhaulyellow

Hey!

I am not entirely sure how I ended up with so many book purchases this month, but I did. I had zero on my list to buy this month (I’ve been trying to only stick to my pre-orders this year), but somehow I ended up buying eight books (none pre-orders) and of course I got a ton of e-books, because E-BOOK DEALS! 😛 I’ve been so good this year with not buying too many books, so I am trying not to let it bother me that I did this month, lol. They are books that I’ve been really wanting though, so at least there’s that.

I don’t have any pictures of my own books for a lot of these, because they haven’t actually arrived yet. It takes awhile for Book Depository and Book Outlet orders to actually get to me (sigh), but since I bought them in August I want to include them in my haul post. You can check out all the books I own over here. There’s also links on that page to pages for my kindle books and my physical books. Now onto my haul!

Books I Bought:

Clean by Juno Dawson
Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne
My [Secret] YouTube Life by Charlotte Seager
State of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury

I’ve been really good about not buying books this year, but I’ve been really wanting to read these books, so I couldn’t resist. I decided to go with Book Depository, because these books are not actually released in the US right now. I seen a couple on Amazon that you can order from the UK, but they were expensive on Amazon versus Book Depository. Hopefully they are worth the wait, because it takes forever for BD orders to get to me which is why I rarely purchase from them. I hate waiting, haha. I’m impatient af.

Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han
Speak: The Graphic Novel
by Laurie Halse Anderson
Scythe by Neal Shusterman
Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett

I got a few books on Book Outlet as well. I’ve stayed clear from Book Outlet for pretty much this entire year (I can do some serious BO damage to my bank account if I let myself), but I noticed that the To All the Boys I’ve Love Before books were being sold out EVERYWHERE thanks to the Netflix movie and I was only missing the third book. Book Outlet had it, so I decided to just get it on there before it was too late. I didn’t want to pay shipping on just one book, so I decided to get Scythe (Finally! I’ve been dying to read it.) and the Speak graphic novel. I read Speak years ago, but every time I see the graphic novel at Target I always want to buy it and never do. Super stoked I seen it on BO and really stoked to read this version. I finally bought Starry Eyes, which I have been dying to get my hands on FOREVER now. I had $10 in Amazon reward points, so I only paid $2.81 for the HC which is awesome.


Books from Publishers/Authors:

Sadie by Courtney Summers
Dear Evan Hansen by Val Emmich

I was so stoked when I won another giveaway on Goodreads for Sadie! I am dying to read this book and hopefully I will be reading it next week. I was sent an ARC of Dear Evan Hansen from The Novl and I am really looking forward to reading it. I think I will try to read that one next week as well. I’m going on a weekend road trip to Illinois for a wedding with my mom & my cousin’s family (I think I mentioned this in my last post) and it’s an 18-20 hour drive. I will most likely be bringing these two books and my kindle. I want to try to use this little trip to play catch up with some ARCs/E-ARCs. Hopefully I’ll get a lot of reading in between 18-20 hours in a car there and then another 18-20 hours back. So you will definitely be seeing reviews for both of these really soon!


E-Books:

batmandown timelessmessbeautifullife

Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu
Down Time by Barry Lyga
Less by Andrew Sean Greer
A Messy Beautiful Life by Sara Jade Alan

I’m not a super hero fan, but Marie Lu! So I had to get Batman: Nightwalker since it was on sale for $1.99. ALSO…DOWN TIME!!! It’s a new I Hunt Killers prequel and I am dead. 😛 I also heard that he is hoping to write another series that follows Jasper Dent and his friends!!! I am hoping this becomes a reality, because you probably know by now that the Jasper Dent (I Hunt Killers) series is one of my favorites.

That’s my August book haul! 🙂 Have you read any of these books? What books did you get this month? Let me know and feel free to link me to your haul posts if you have one.

I should have my wrap up post up in the next few days. I am hoping to finish at least one of the two books that I am currently reading before then. Crossing my fingers to finish both though!

I hope you have a great day!
