I am just going to jump right into my December book haul. 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 (pages need updated since it’s been a few months though). I actually have a lot of updating to the blog to do before January 1st, yikes! 😛
Physical Books I Bought:
Exile by S.M. Wilson
I ordered Exile from Book Depository this month, but it most likely won’t be here until closer to the middle of January. It’s the sequel to The Extinction Trials, which I enjoyed reading. You’ll see more on that in my wrap up post.
Books Gifted on Christmas:
Love & Luck by Jenna Evans Welsh
To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
Gmorning, Gnight! by Lin-Manuel Miranda
Dot Journaling – A Practical Guide by Rachel Wilkerson Miller
Lettering and Modern Calligraphy by Paper Peony Press
The Dot Journaling book came in a boxed set with a bullet journal. I got a ton of bullet journal stuff for Christmas, because I am hoping to better manage my life next year haha. I’ve always wanted to try bullet journaling, so now’s my chance. I also got a cookbook for my new Instant Pot that I got for Christmas, which is cool. Andy’s parents also got us a Harry Potter cookbook as well. I am actually glad I got a few books for Christmas, because I swear my family never wants to buy me books for Christmas.
December was the month of e-book purchases. I bought so many e-books. I couldn’t resist all the good deals. I even had to hold back on a few, because I already got so many this month lol. I have been super stoked for all of these books, so the e-book sales were a win for me.
Aftercare Instructions by Bonnie Popkin
Obscura by Joe Hart
A Quiet Genocide by Glenn Bryant
My Favorite Half-Night Stand by Christina Lauren
I’ve had Aftercare Instructions on my Goodreads TBR for so long now and I am glad I finally caught it on sale. My Favorite Half-Night Stand is one of my highly anticipated, so I am excited.
Maybe Now by Colleen Hoover
Verity by Colleen Hoover
The Death of Bees by Lisa O’Donnell
Girl Made of Stars by Ashley Herring Blake
Munmun by Jesse Andrews
I plan to buy the Colleen Hoover books in paperback if I end up loving them. Maybe Someday is my favorite CoHo book of all-time, so I hope I love the sequel! Munmun sounds so weird, so I was pretty intrigued when I heard about that one…..“In an alternate reality a lot like our world, every person’s physical size is directly proportional to their wealth. The poorest of the poor are the size of rats, and billionaires are the size of skyscrapers.” Sounds interesting. I’m glad I finally caught it on sale.
Monday’s Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson
9 Days and 9 Nights by Katie Cotugno
Pride by Ibi Zoboi
The Real Lolita by Sarah Weinman
Lincoln’s Last Trial by Dan Abrams, David Fisher
I’ve never actually read Lolita (I plan to at some point in 2019), but I love true crime. The Real Lolita is about the kidnapping that inspired the book Lolita. Lincoln’s Last Trial….Abraham Lincoln & true crime in one book? Yes, please!
What books did you get in December? Have you read any of the books that I got? Feel free to link me to your haul posts.
Wrap up coming soon. I might be able to finish one more book before the end of December. Let’s see what happens! 😛
In case you missed it;
I hope you have a great day and weekend!
