Somehow I ended up buying a lot of books this month, which has been a little strange for me this year. I’ve been trying to be very careful with how much money I spend on books and how many books I buy over the last couple years. I think it’s been steady at maybe 1-3 books that I buy a month this year, but somehow I ended up with EIGHT books this month! Deals…I can’t pass up good deals on books. 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 my physical books. I finally updated all lists earlier this month, but these below won’t be included until the next update. All book titles below are linked to Goodreads.
Books I Bought:
Patron Saints of Nothing by Randy Ribay
Hot Dog Girl by Jennifer Dugan
Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman
I’ve been wanting Patron Saints of Nothing and Hot Dog Girl for awhile now and seen them super cheap on Amazon this month, so I decided to get copies of those. I needed Thunderhead, because I read Scythe this month and wanted the sequel ASAP! I can’t wait to read it. Hopefully I’ll be picking it up soon.
Radio Silence by Alice Oseman
Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell
Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim
I want to own all of Alice Oseman’s books, so I got Radio Silence this month. I think I am only missing one book of hers that I’ll eventually get. I told myself not until I read Solitaire and Radio Silence first, lol. I’ve liked most of Rainbow’s books that I’ve read, so I had Pumpkinheads on pre-order and I’m looking forward to reading it. It will be a good addition to my Halloweenie TBR in October too. I read an ARC on Netgalley of Spin the Dawn and liked it so much. I seen it was only $8 on Amazon, so I decided to get a copy and now I can go pre-order that sequel! 😛
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas
Once Upon a River by Diane Setterfield
I got A Court of Wings and Ruin solely because it was only $1.99 at this outlet store I went to. I really didn’t like the sequel in the series (I think I gave it two stars, I’m still angry about it) so I have no idea if/when I’ll pick it up but for some reason I didn’t want to pass up $1.99. I love wasting money, clearly. *rolling eyes at myself* I also got Once Upon A River at that same outlet store for $3.99 and I’ve been wanting to read it, so at least that was a win.
City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab
Inspection by Josh Malerman
Another month where I didn’t go crazy with e-books! I think last month I only bought three. I’ve been trying to get a little more picky with the e-book deals as well. I’ve been wanting City of Ghosts and Inspection for awhile now, so I was stoked to see them on sale for $1.99-2.99 (can’t remember exactly what price). Super stoked to read them! I think they will be perfect to add to my Halloweenie TBR in October alongside Pumpkinheads mentioned above.
What new books did you get in August? Have you read any of the ones that I got? Feel free to link me to your haul post, so I can check it out!
I’ll have my wrap up post in the next couple days and I will catch up with all of your posts in the next couple days too. 🙂
