I’m back with another book haul post! My last one, from a few weeks ago, was a compilation of my buys from July, August, and (part of) September. In that post, I explained that I decided to include September purchases and publish that post mid September because I wasn’t planning to buy any more books for the rest of the month. Gosh, was I wrong. Thanks to Joey, I ended up having a late night/early morning shopping spree on BookOutlet. Basically, I was battling the online crowds to snag my bargain copy of A Darker Shade of Magic. And guys, let me tell you. Between being bleary eyed because it was so late and having some troubleshooting with my PayPal account… it was a struggle. But a worthwhile one.
Also I ended up with a few more ARCs this month that I wasn’t expecting to come in so soon. And I did buy 3 books for full price, which you’ll see later as square Instagram photos (I plan to post these exact photos on my Bookstagram in the coming week; no shame, I’m totally guilty of crossposting, lol) in this post. Also, underneath all photos, Goodreads links will be available!
Okay, so let’s get to it, shall we?
No surprise with this one, I preordered Six of Crows months ago and have been hinting to you guys about my excitement! AND LOOK AT THE STUNNING BLACK PAGES. HOW COOL.
The next book is one I thought I wouldn’t buy or read until at the least next year, but I guess I’ll be reading this sooner than later. Part of the reason as to why I rushed this purchase is because of these reviews by wonderful readers/bloggers: Carolyn’s review, Jenna’s review, and Thomas’s Review. When a book brings out the real poet in a blogger from just them reviewing said book, you know it’s the real deal.
And, of course, to qualify free shipping with Amazon I had to spend $35+ (that’s how they get you, folks) so I thought I’d pick up my first Patrick Ness novel. After all, Joey and Aentee love his work. So yeah, it’s about time I join the bandwagon. Plus, from what I know, I think this is a good fit for October?
And these are the two ARCs that got. I’m currently reading Romancing the Dark in the City of Light, and I’m really liking it so far. It’s set in France and the main character shares my name, Summer. That review will be up very soon, hopefully Tuesday if I finish it in time for the publication date.
Looking at it now, I really like how this blog post turned out. Maybe I’ll continue to use my Instagram photos for some posts in the future… And it might even encourage me to buy less books to keep the posts shorter if I do use this method for book hauls. Who knows!
Anyway, have an awesome weekend, everyone! Let me know what you hauled in the month of September or share what October reads you’re excited for!
