September-October 2019 Book Haul

I’ve been slightly more prolific with my book buying the past couple of months, although the majority of the books I got were in electronic format and two of the physical copy ones were FairyLoot books. Still, my physical TBR has gone up instead of down. *sigh* Just by one book, but still. I haven’t had a lot of time, so I’ve mostly been consuming books in audio format.


Physical books I purchased

Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson | The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan | The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

FairyLoot

Serpent & Dove by Shellby Mahurin | The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh

Electronic copies

Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor | Osidio by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff | Circe by Madeline Miller | The Two Towers by J. R. R. Tolkien | Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All by Jonas Jonasson

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon | The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon | The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon | Arcanum Unbounded by Brandon Sanderson


Out of all of the electronic ones, I’ve read/listened to all of them except Dreams of Gods and Monsters and The Song Rising, which I’m currently reading both. So it’s not so bad. Except that I’m not reading my physical books, which I really want to in order to reduce my TBR. I have also unhauled a number of audiobooks. Most of these I got through Audible’s exchange thing. I’m going to do an unhaul post soon as well.

A Moderate Book Haul

Since my last haul which was in June, I believe, I’ve been pretty reasonable with my book buying. I brought in 6 books, 2 of which are audiobooks, 2 from subscription boxes and two that I bought as physical copies. And of the 6, I’ve already read 2 and am currently reading another 3. So, I haven’t massively added to my TBR these past couple of months, which I’m pleased with because I REALLY want to reduce it to a MAXIMUM of 20 books at least on my physical TBR. I’m not too fussed about my audiobook/ebook TBR, although I don’t want that to get too out of hand either. I currently have 58 books on my physical TBR, so I have some way to go. Anyway, let’s get into the haul.

Kingdom of Copper by S. A. Chakraborty | The Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien

A Huge Book Haul

I haven’t actually made a haul post since April. That’s 6 months of acquiring books. So… I don’t even know how many books there are going to be. A lot.


Heart of Thorns by Bree Barton | These Rebel Waves by Sara Raasch | Angry White Pyjamas by Robert Twigger | Catwoman Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas | Origin by Dan Brown

Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel | Waking Gods by Sylvain Neuvel | Lifelike by Jay Kristoff | Wild Embrace by Nikita Gill | The Killing Moon by N. K. Jemisin

That’s it, unless I’m forgetting something. Which is entirely likely. Actually not as many as I was expecting. I was on a book buying ban for a couple of months though, so that’s probably why the total only comes up to 20. And some of these, I didn’t even buy myself!

Spring Book Haul

I have decided that for this haul, I would do a video because some of the books that I have to haul are just so beautiful and I wanted to adequately fangirl over them, which is difficult to do through pictures and text. If you don’t feel like watching a shitty, badly edited 12 minute long video of me rambling on about book, then I will put a list of the books in my haul with all relevant links below, so keep scrolling past the video. If you’re okay with a shitty, 12 minute long rambly video, then enjoy.
