May Book Haul

Hey guys!  I hope everyone had a fabulous May!  Hard to believe it is June already!  I’m still working my way towards buying less books.  I think I did a much better job this month!  June is a month with ZERO preorders!  I think it’s my only month this year without any.  I am determined to be extremely good in June.

First off I will start out with the awesome book I won from Rachel @ Confessions of a Book Nerd! She had a giveaway for her 2nd blogiversary and this was the book I chose.  I’m really excited to read it!


This month’s OwlCrate was definitely not my favorite.  The theme was steampunk and I’m not a big fan of steampunk.  However, I am a fan of Peter Pan and the book of the month is a retelling of Peter Pan.


Next up is my May special preorder of The Crown’s Game!  It was one of my most anticipated books for the year so I special ordered it from Kepler’s Books to get a personalized signed copy.  I have since read the book and I loved it!  Really looking forward to book 2!


My other preorder for May was A Court of Mist and Fury!  I still haven’t gotten around to reading this one yet but I am really looking forward to some more Rhysand.  Also, Bloomsbery had an awesome deal if you preordered ACOMAF you got this tote bag!  I love tote bags so I’m really happy to have this one to add to my collection.


I finally gave up on hoping Book Outlet would get the Game of Thrones vol. 1 & 3 graphic novels.  I got them on Amazon so I could hopefully read them soon.


After finishing The Kiss of Deception the other day, I decided I wanted it in hardcover so I got that to replace my paperback copy.  I also bought book 2, The Heart of Betrayal, and preordered book 3.


This past weekend we made a stop in at Half Price Books to see if they had any of the Captain America movies.  They were having a big 20% off storewide sale.  I didn’t find a whole lot, but that was probably a good thing!


The rest of my book haul is all from Book Outlet.  I’m not sure which of these I’m most excited for!  I’ve been dying to finishing off my collection of Jon Krakauer’s books so I was super excited to find Missoula and Where Men Win Glory.  I have also been dying for Felicia Day’s book so I literally squealed for joy when I found out Book Outlet had it.


Have you read any of these books?



Shattered Blue Event Coming Up!

If you are a returning visitor to my blog, you may have seen my big love for Shattered Blue by Lauren Bird Horowitz before.  I read the book last December and it blew me away!  I loved it so much that I had to own it in every edition available from paperback to MP3 audio.  I’ve also shared the love with friends and family.


Coming up in less than 2 weeks there will be a Shattered Blue event at Kepler’s Books in Menlo Park, California!  Come by the event and meet the amazing person behind the novel, Lauren Bird Horowitz!  For more event info and to RSVP to this free event, click here!  And if you do attend, you could also see myself and Ashley @ Socially Awkward Bookworm because we will both be there! 🙂
