Book Haul|| April.



It’s almost the end of April already, how?? Today I am just going to jump right into my April book haul. You can check out a full list of the books that I own over here. There’s links to different pages on my blog that show my e-books and one for my physical books. I finally updated all lists earlier in April. All book titles below are linked to Goodreads.

Books I Bought:
*from bookstores, amazon, etc.*

Solitaire by Alice Oseman
Heartstopper Vol 1 by Alice Oseman
Internment by Samira Ahmed
Jack of Hearts (and other parts) by L.C. Rosen

I’ve been really wanting to read Heartstopper, so I finally decided to order it on Book Depository. I ordered it in March, but it finally got to me earlier in April. I decided to hop on Amazon and order Solitaire, because at the end of Heartstopper the author mentions that the two characters in the book are also in Solitaire, so I had to have it. I am impatiently waiting for volume two. I got a UK version of Solitaire, because I liked that the color of it matched more with Heartstopper. The only downside is the size difference between the two. I couldn’t help buying Internment when I see it was only $8 on Amazon. I’ve been really wanting to read it, so I’m stoked! I decided to order Jack of Hearts, because it sounded so good and something I’d be into and I will hopefully be reading it really soon.

Books from Publishers:


Girls with Sharp Sticks by Suzanne Young

The publisher reached out to me asking if I wanted to review Girls with Sharp Sticks, because they had seen that I added it to my Goodreads shelf, so I said yes! I was surprised when I received a finished copy. You can check out my review for this book over here. I gave it five stars.



The Overdue Life of Amy Byler by Kelly Harms
Like Never and Always by Ann Aguirre
Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore
The Murmur of Bees by Sofia Segovia


Geekerella by Ashley Poston
Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi
A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi
The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins

I have a private wishlist on Amazon of all the books that I want, but are waiting for them to go on sale. I check it every day to see if any go on sale and quite a few of them went on sale this month, which was exciting. I got The Overdue Life of Amy Byler free with Amazon Prime First Reads. I also got The Murmur of Bees for free. I see Geekerella all the time on Amazon when I browse their books/e-books, but I just never decided to buy it. I decided to look it up on Goodreads and there’s a ton of great reviews about it, so I decided to finally buy it since it was only $1.99. I already own a physical copy of Aru Shah, but I couldn’t help buying an e-book version since it was only 99 cents. I seen The Library at Mount Char floating around a little after I started blogging and never got it. The e-book was on sale, so I decided to get it. It’ll be perfect to read about Halloween time later this year.

Random thought: Does anyone else buy a ton of e-books when they are on sale and then never read them? I feel like I do that way too much and my Kindle is full of books that I REALLY want to read, but just never do. I always end up checking out e-books from my library instead, UGHHHHH. I don’t know how much I’ll be able to this year, but maybe next year I will work on trying to get through a lot of my Kindle e-books, especially the older ones!

What books did you get in April? Have you read any of the books that I got? Feel free to link me to your book haul posts, so I can check them out.

I’ll have my April wrap up posted tomorrow or Wednesday. It’s mostly completed, but waiting to finish one of the current books I am reading so I can include it in my wrap up post. I should have it finished today, because I only have like 50 pages left in it.

In case you  missed it;
Nature, Dinosaurs, & Other Things.
It finally happened!!
Friday Finds #79.

I hope you have a great day!

    • Thanks, Kelly! Buying e-books on sale and never reading them is definitely an unhealthy habit, sigh. It’s so hard to resist a book being $1.99 when it’s normally $10 haha. I am obsessed with the covers for Heartstopper and Solitaire! I had to go with the UK edition of Solitaire, because it matched so well with Heartsopper. ❤

  1. I often buy too many physical books and don’t read them, but ebooks – never. I dislike them and won’t read them. I didn’t get through all the books I received from April, but I did catch up on reading older titles while searching for two books that inspire travel for my second book blog. I really liked Katherine Center’s How to Walk Away.

    • I also buy too many physical books and never read them too. I just buy all books and never read them. I usually end up checking out books from the library that I don’t own, but want to read. LOL. Such a bad habit. That’s great that you were able to at least catch up on reading older titles. I really need to start reading more of the older books I have on my shelves. I’ll have to look up How to Walk Away, thanks!

  2. I have so many books on my Kobo that I’ve gotten for free thanks to BookBub, lol. I’ve honestly only read a few, but they are free so I keep getting them. I keep telling myself I will read them someday, lol! But I also keep checking out library books instead. 😉

    • When I first found out about BookBub years ago I literally filled my Kindle up with so many free books haha. I tried to chill out from doing that though. I went through my Kindle to delete books that I plan to never read and majority of the deleted ones were the free ones. The library is dangerous LOL! 😛
