September Haul!

I love that I start off every month with really great intentions, yet I epically fail.  I img_5453told myself at the end of August that I was going to only buy Empire of Storms in September, and then use the rest of the month to catch up on books that I have bought only to stack by my bedside.

The most obnoxious thing about this haul too, is that most of the books I bought for full price from Barnes & Noble.  No Book Outlet books, or discounted Amazon books, just membership priced books from B&N.  But when B&N sends you an email that says “DOUBLE DISCOUNT WEEKEND FOR MEMBERS” you go.  And you go all four of those days too.  (I am ashamed.) (Kind-of.)

From Barnes & Noble:img_5104

  • Empire of Storms – Sarah J. Maas
    • Have you seen the exclusive art work end pages of this edition?!  Literally squeaked with excitement when I saw them.
  • Vassa in the Night – Sarah Porter
    • I really regret this one.  I think it may be the book included in one of my subscription boxes this month. *le sigh*
  • The Graces – Laure Eve

From Target:

  • Empire of Storms – Sarah J. Maas
    • I needed the exclusive fan art dust jacket okay!?
  • Crooked Kingdom – Leigh Bardugo
    • Target, stop with the exclusive fan art dust jackets!  (Actually, don’t. Don’t ever stop.)

Blogging for Books:

  • The Invoice – Jonas Karlsson

From OwlCrate:

  • Three Dark Crowns – Kendare Blake

From Books on Dragonwings:

  • The Reader – Traci Chee

countrysideBooks Sent by Authors:

  • Countryside: The Book of the Wise – JT Cope IV
  • Countryside: The Tears of Adina – JT Cope IV
  • Suitcase of Happyness – Mark Jaffe
  • The Automation – GB Gabbler & BLA

So, overall it was a pretty great month, both reading wise and hauling wise.  I would say I am going to be better at buying books in October, but I also know that next weekend I am going to buy new bookcases, and what if they are not filled up to where they look good?!  Then I will most certainly have to do a Book Outlet haul at least!

How many books did you bring home this month?

  1. Holy wow, this haul is admirable! Well, you bought Empire of Storms, so there’s that! 😉
    I only got one book in September and it was a gift for the Dutch Literature Week. University took all of my money, haha. At least October is going to be better. 🙂


  2. Well, I had 28 books in my September haul so…I understand having no restraint. I bought a few too many because of the double discount days at Barnes & Noble as well.
