Book Haul|| October. & New Book Room!

Hey!

Before I jump into my book haul post, I want to show you my new book room! The husband did a pretty awesome job putting in the new flooring and we repainted the walls as well. I wish I took proper before and after pictures of the room, but so that you can get an idea…before we had green walls (it was like a shiny baby green color) and beige carpet. It seriously HAD to go! Now we have grey walls (it has a hint of blue in it) and grey vinyl flooring and it’s so beautiful! 🙂 Here are a couple of pictures…

What do you think? 😀 If you click the pictures, you can see them bigger. I am so stoked and happy with the way that it turned out and now I’m in here pretty much ALL THE TIME. I even traded in watching TV shows on an actual TV to watching them on my laptop just so I can be in here. 😛 Maybe this will motivate me to read more and blog more again! Fingers crossed! I do have some other things to say, but I’m going to save it for my October wrap up that I hope to post either tomorrow or Monday.

So, my October book haul…I’m pretty happy with all the books that I got this month and almost all of them were on sale, so that was nice! 🙂 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. Anyway, here are the books that I got in October.

Print Books I Bought:

Swamp Thing by Maggie Stiefvater
Wonderland by Juno Dawson
How to Make Friends With the Dark by Kathleen Glasgow
Hold Still by Nina LaCour

I saw a bunch of different previews/illustrations of Swamp Thing, so I really wanted to get it because it looked awesome. I actually read it this month and I’ll talk a little bit about it in my wrap up coming soon. Wonderland is part of the London Trilogy and since I already have the first two books in the trilogy, I decided to get the third as well. Wonderland actually came with a signed bookplate in the book, which was cool. Hopefully I’ll be reading all three really soon! Hold Still and How to Make Friends With the Dark are books that I found at this discount store, but were also on my TBR. I was stoked to get them for $2.99 each!

E-Books:

halloweenseasontheboybetweenspellbreaker

Halloween Season by Lucy A. Snyder
The Boy Between by Josiah Hartley, Amanda Prowse
Spellbreaker by Charlie N. Holmberg

guineverethesewitchesdon'tburntristanstrong

The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White
These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling
Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky by Kwame Mbalia

I’m pretty happy with the e-books I got this month. I also tried not to go crazy this month either, so I tried to limit myself a lot. I opted to get Halloween Season as an e-book instead of physical book because it was only $4.99. I was able to get The Boy Between and Spellbreaker free with my Amazon Prime membership. The other three are books that I wanted so bad and they finally were on sale, so I had to get them! Can’t beat $2.99 or less!

What new books did you get in October? 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!

As I mentioned above, I should have my book wrap up coming tomorrow or Monday. I am hoping to maybe finish one more book or one more audiobook before October ends. We’ll see though since I only JUST started my current read and currently haven’t even started any new audiobooks yet, lol. Wishful thinking, I guess. I’ll also be doing some blog hopping between today and tomorrow. 🙂

Book Haul|| September.

Hey!

I actually forgot all about posting my September book haul, oops! 😛 I was checking out my drafts and saw it there. I think I did pretty good in September by not going too overboard with buying books even though there are SO MANY BOOKS that I really, really want. 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 do need to update these pages since it has been a few months. Anyway, here are the books that I got in September.

Print Books I Bought:

Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas
Meat Market by Juno Dawson
Beetle & the Hollowbones by Aliza Layne

I had Cemetery Boys on pre-order, because it sounded so good and I had to have it. I am super stoked to read it. I have the book Clean by Juno Dawson, which I still have to read, but I really wanted to get Meat Market because it sounds so good. It’s part of the London trilogy and I’m actually waiting on the third book to get here, so I can binge read them all. Beetle & the Hollowbones is a graphic novel that looked so fun and perfect for my October “Halloweenie” TBR. I flipped through some of the pages and I love the illustrations so much. I can’t wait to read it soon.


E-Books:

yousayitfirstroommaiddatemebrysonkeller

You Say It First by Katie Cortugno
Roommaid by Sariah Wilson
Date Me, Bryson Keller by Kevin van Whye

thedawnchorusagoodgirlsguidethehouse

The Dawn Chorus by Samantha Shannon
A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson
The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune

I think I did pretty good with not going to crazy on buying a ton of e-books this month. There were so many that I did want to buy, but again tried to limit myself with the e-book deals. Most of these books are ones that I’ve been wanting for so long now and was happy I finally caught them on sale.

What new books did you get in September? 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!

Halloweenie TBR.

Booooo!

Happy October! It’s my favorite month of the year! I love all things Halloween, Fall, and Spooky. I’ve started decorating my house with cute and spooky Halloween decorations, which I am so stoked about! I love seeing pumpkins and skeletons all over my house. This hasn’t been my greatest reading year as I’m sure you guys have seen me say over and over again. And with that being said, I’m not really sure how October is going to turn out for me, but I am still sharing with you a Halloweenie TBR of the books that I really hope to read in October. But first, check out my mini Halloween “Christmas” tree.

I always make this big Halloween themed TBR every year whether I get around to reading them or not; it’s fun to create them! I am going to include 10 books on my TBR for this month and that is being really ambition considering it seems that I can barely read a couple books a month this year. But maybe being in my favorite month will hype me up to read ALL THE SPOOKY THINGS! Here is what I have on my Halloweenie TBR…

None Shall Sleep by Ellie Marney
Halloween Season by Lucy A. Snyder
Beetle & the Hollowbones byAliza Layne
Clown in a Cornfield by Adam Cesare
Scream All Night by Derek Milman

The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
The Suffering by Rin Chupeco
Only Ashes Remain by Rebecca Schaeffer
When Villains Rise by Rebecca Schaeffer

I’m sure there are going to be some spooky audiobooks that I’ll listen to throughout the month as well, but I’m not exactly sure what they will be yet. It really just depends on what my library as available at the moment. So, those will be a surprise you’ll have to wait to find out. 😛 And this TBR may change depending on my mood and there’s a couple other books I’m eyeing and may possibly buy, but if all goes well then I hope to read most of these books this month.

Have you read any of the books on my October TBR? What do you plan to read in October?

I still have to post my September book haul and that will probably be up on the blog on Monday. I also need to reply to your comments and blog hop again. I’ll be doing that soon too. 🙂
