2015 July Book Haul

Hello my bookish friends! On this lovely last day of July, I bring you my book haul for the month! I haven’t bought as many books this month, but I suppose I’m pretty happy with what I have; I bought 17 books, if I’m not missing any. And here they are.

Physical books (You may have seen some of these on my TTT list):

I also happen to have received a set of ARCs and finished copies from the lovely Lola. (Thank you so much!) You may have also seen some of these on one of my Friday Finds posts:

I can’t remember the ebooks I bought this month, to be honest. I know I have these three:

But I can’t remember what other books I got and I can’t seem to bring myself to go see. Sorry. XD

Review Copies

So that’s all for my July haul! What books have you accumulated this month? Let me know in the comments below or link your haul post if you have one!

Top 10 Tuesday #14 (July 14): Top Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession

Hello everyone! It’s time for a Top Ten Tuesday, a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is: Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession, which can be bought, library, or review copy. So here they are, in no particular order!

Illusionarium_bookcover1. Illusionarium by Heather Dixon (library e-book)

I don’t think I’m going to be able to read this one, but I downloaded it from the library anyway. This book had been one of the hyped books in May so I’m curious to see what it’s like.

2. Mia and the Bad Boy by Lisa Burstein (bought e-book)Mia and the Bad Boy_bookcover

This was on sale, and I’ve been meaning to read it, so, I thought, why not? It seems like a good romance novel.

Spellbinder_bookcover3. Spellbinder by C.C. Hunter (bought e-book)

I love C.C. Hunter’s Shadow Falls and Shadow Falls: After Dark series, and this is a novella in the POV of one of the side characters, so I really wanted to read this! I believe it was released on June 30th, so this is a pretty late download for me, but it kind of slipped my mind. But I have it now, so yay!

4. Beyond the Veil by Pippa DaCosta (free e-book)Beyond the Veil_bookcover

This is one of my Bookbub downloads (most of you know how dangerous it is for TBRs!) and since I have City of Fae by the same author, I thought it would be a good idea to get one of her other books too. Plus, it was free, so…

5. The Lying Game by Sara Shepard #3-6 (bought hardcovers)

This series is addicting! I had to buy the rest of the books in the series. (You can check out my review on the first book here.)

Maybe Someday_bookcover6. Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover (bought paperback)

I really enjoyed Ugly Love (but not exactly as much as I hoped) and I want to give a try to CoHo’s other books. I’ve heard great things about this one, so when I saw this one on sale, I chose to buy it! ( I’ve heard great things about all her books though, so I guess I should keep my expectations low…

7. Confess by Colleen Hoover (bought paperback)Confess_bookcover

Another Colleen Hoover book that I’ve heard lots about. I’m not sure what exactly to expect anymore, because I don’t want to hope too high and be met with disappointment, but I guess I’ll just have to read it to see!

Never Never_bookcover Never Never Part 2_bookcover8. Never Never Books 1 & 2 by Colleen Hoover

And more Colleen Hoover books! Again, same reason for the other two books, and also because it had this wicked deal that got me both books in the Never Never duology(?)/trilogy(?) for a low price.

9. You’re the One that I Want by Giovanna Fletcher (bought paperback)You're the One that I Want_bookcover

I’ve been meaning to pick up some of Giovanna Fletcher’s books, and this seemed like a good place to start!

I Hunt Killers_bookcover10. I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga (bought paperback)

This seems like an awesome book! Plus I’ve read great reviews on it, so when I saw it on sale in the bookstore, I grabbed it up!

 

 


So these are some of the most recent books that I recently hauled. What books have you recently gotten? Do you own any of these books? Tell me in the comments below or link your post!

Have a great Tuesday!

Mini May Book Haul

I usually post a huge book haul post at the end of each month, but as I just got some awesome new books yesterday, I decided to show them off! 😉 The camera on my iPod is glitching right now, so I won’t be able to post original pictures of the books, unfortunately! I’ll have to make do with the covers off Goodreads.

So, the books I got:

Book titles (linking to Goodreads):

I’m so excited to finally have purchased this stunning book! ❤ I’m already halfway through it (#ReadingInClass) and it’s amazing so far!

I’m loving her Love, Rosie book so far, so I had to buy this book! Plus, that cover though! So fun, with bright colors. My kind of thing!

Same reason as P.S I Love You! I also heard several good things about this book.

I’ve heard so much hype surrounding this book, and I’m dying to read it!

I don’t think I need to explain this one! There’s been so much hype around this, and so many great reviews! Can’t wait to read it.

I had no idea Kody Keplinger wrote a companion novel to The DUFF! The minute I saw it, I knew I had to buy it! (*Check out my review on The DUFF here.)

Do I have to explain this one? I’m super excited to read this, I know it’s been a while since it’s been released, but I just haven’t had the chance to read it! 🙂


So that’s it for my mini book haul! Keep your eyes out for my bigger haul I will be posting at the end of this month. 🙂

What books have you recently hauled? Let me know in the comments below! ❤

Happy hauling!
