My First Book Haul Is Huge

Hello everyone! So I have such an exciting post for you today; I am doing my first ever book haul on here! And it’s so huge which is also extremely awesome! Why is it so big you ask? Well, it’s all the books I’ve received and bought since the summer so I’m sure you can imagine that would be a lot. I was going to do a summer book haul in August but then I began to win and get more books so I was like “I should wait till they all come in” but then the cycle just kept going. Thus, I decided to just do a book haul now and do more every 4 months or so. So basically this is the 2015 Summer Book Haul! I’m really excited to show you all the books I’ve received and bought. The pictures are in slide show form because there’s too many to put individually but there will be a list of books below with who got them for me, etc. I’m so excited! Here we go:

And that’s all! The totally amount of books bought/received are 39 which is a ton. I don’t remember how many books I had before but it was a lot. Tune in on Wednesday for an unboxing post as well! The next book haul will probably be in November because, even though the book hauls are supposed to be every 4 months, November is more or less when Fall ends and I want to get the hauls on track to coordinate with the seasons. I have no idea if that makes sense to anyone but all you should really take away is that the next one should be in November…..hopefully.

Well, thank you to everyone who gave me books; you are all absolutely fantastic and amazing and wonderful! I ❤ you all! Thank you as well to you wonderful audience for reading this, you’re pretty awesome as well! Have a nice day/night and tata for now!

  2. Oh my! That’s quite the book haul! I see many good books though. I’m currently reading The Scorch Trials but I’m in a “wtf is happening here?!” kind of mood to continue reading it and The Book Thief, though very unique, is forever on my Currently-Reading shelf too. I don’t know why I can’t seem to finish it when it’s not a bad book! I hope you’ll enjoy your new books!


    • Oh definitely! There are so many books I wanted that I’m so happy I got! I get what you mean by the Scorch Trials….I’m haven’t finished the series as after that book I just stopped…the series was just too confusing….The Book Thief is good but it is something to get used to so I get why it may be hard to get into. It’s not really plot based, rather more of a history story kind of so it’s a bit of a shock from reading other books….thank you!!


  3. THERE ARE SOOOO MANY. And how lucky are you winning all those giveaways?? 😛 Give me some of your luck haha. I have the same Lady Midnight sample, isn’t it glorious?! Now we have to wait until March though 😦 I hope you’ll enjoy all the books! ❤

    • hahahahaha I feel the same way! Thank you! I wish all the luck! I loved the sampler! I read it as soon as I got it then almost cried bc of how much time there still is between now and when LM comes out…..I know right?! It stinks….Thanks! There are a couple that have themes I don’t read so I need to take a look at them and decide what I want to do….
