I continue to be surprised with how fast time is going this year. It’s hard to believe that August is nearly over already! I had fully intended to have a very small book haul this month but as usual (for me) things got out of hand. I found some good stuff on Book Outlet this month and ended up getting more than I had planned. I also had a few preorders come in as well as a couple of ARCs and some great deals I couldn’t pass up on Amazon.
We’ll start off with the ARCs I received. I got two for review and a signed ARC I won in a giveaway. The two for review are The Cruelty by Scott Bergstrom and The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis. The signed ARC that I won is An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir.
Next up were the amazing deals I couldn’t pass up on Amazon. These two books had been on my wishlist since before they were published so I couldn’t resist.
I also really wanted to complete my paperback collection of Colleen Hoover’s books so I purchased the Slammed series from Amazon.
I had preordered Harry Potter and the Cursed Child from Target and it finally arrived in August.
I also had a few other preorders that published in August that I received. It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover, The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson, and the amazing Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. I preordered a US signed first edition of Nevernight through Amazon.
I also purchased a limited edition red edged UK edition through Goldsboro Books and it just arrived yesterday! It is absolutely stunning! My book is #86 out of 250 First Editions printed exclusively for Goldsboro Books. Seriously…. look at how gorgeous this book is!
The majority of my book haul comes from Book Outlet. I had placed several orders throughout the month. Several of those books I bought specifically for my October Halloweeny TBR.
I also resubscribed to OwlCrate when I found out about the theme for the September box – Darkness. I renewed in time for the August box as well and everything inside was really cute! I especially love the Eleanor & Park necklace.
So that is my entire book haul for August! I fully intend for September to be a very low spending month, with the exception of a few preorders that are due to be released in September.
Have you read any of these books?
