Fall Book Haul

Also known as the “I have a LOT of new books to show you book haul” and I am 100% not ashamed. I mean this is three months combined into one because I very rarely talk about the books I get. Plus there were a ton of good books that came out recently (and I haven’t even gotten to buy most of them.) I also promise that I inevitably forgot some (probably the ones I bought for $0.25-$1 at the library.

September Pre-Orders:

Tower of Dawn by Sarah J Maas

Okay, okay, I still haven’t read this yet but that’s because I have been a little excessive with the library book borrowing and I’ve gotten very behind. I was doing a whole ToG reread before I got to this and that’s temporarily on hold – but I need to get back to it soon!!

Boston Teen Author Festival Books:

Windwitch by Susan Dennard

Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter

Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

I donated to the BTA Fest’s Kickstarter and received the lovely signed edition of WW, after meeting the lovely Susan Dennard (sort of) and seeing the promo that if I bought one of her books I got Vaasa for free… I bought Windwitch since I only owned Truthwitch.

September Owlcrate:

Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows

Dragons guys, how could I pass it up?

October Pre-Orders:

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Illustrated Edition) by J.K. Rowling

I must own ALL the Harry Potter books, so this was an insta-pre-order.


A Darker Shade of Magic (Collector’s Edition) by V.E. Schwab

I’d been looking to buy the Shades of Magic series for a while but the books were still expensive and then I saw this… oh my gosh, immediate pre-order and it was the same price as the normal edition.

Barnes and Noble Binge Purchase:

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas

Warcross by Marie Lu

Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab

The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

This is the part where I just got excited and couldn’t control myself. They put the YA books on sale for $10 each when you bought at least two… I bought three… then I caved and bought three more. The Language of Thorns was even signed.

November Pre-Orders:

City of Bones (10th Anniversary Edition) by Cassandra Clare

I also ordered this almost the moment I saw it, but it was expensive so I put a price watch on it and the moment it dropped to my desired price I pre-ordered it.

November Book of the Month:

Artemis by Andy Weir

Shanah loved this book and I trust her opinions, so when BotM club sent me a promo to get the first month free when I paid for the second month (aka basically 50% off two months) I decided to snag this beauty. Plus I need more sci-fi on my shelf.

Plus my random library (sale) or used book finds during those three months:

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare

I’m missing some of the books from the Shadowhunter Chronicles, for whatever reason but it’s a struggle to convince myself to spend $15 for them on Amazon when I probably shouldn’t be spending money on books at all. I have car insurance and stuff to pay for! Ugh. Adulting. So I am incredibly excited whenever I find a book at a library sale that will help me complete my collection!

Michael Vey: Rise of the Elgen by Richard Paul Evans

Prodigy by Marie Lu

The Serpent’s Shadow by Rick Riordan

Beastly Bones by William Ritter

Clariel by Garth Nix


I said I wasn’t ashamed, but looking at all of these books I’m slightly embarrassed. I’m going to be honest. I don’t regret it but also.. it’s a lot of books. I don’t know how to feel right now. I think I’m just going to put a bunch of books on my Christmas list and not get any others until the new year, maybe, unless there’s a subscription box I want?

    Extremely jealous! But also incredibly happy for you! THIS WAS AMAZING!
    I wish there were $10 book sales in my stores, I would be walking away with many, many great reads!

      Oh thank you! The two library sales I went to were just a dream, so many good finds. The library I’m creating just keeps getting filled with so many lovely books. 😍 I just stare at my shelves sometimes.

      Oh yeah, I had a hard time limiting myself. $10 is basically the price I tell myself I’m allowed to consider when dreaming about books I want, unless they’re special editions… then all bets are off.

    Ooooooooh these were great, Kyera! What a fantastic haul! So glad to see Beastly Bones pop up in there, and what fantastic library finds! All of them look in such great condition which is hard sometimes to find in there. And I will admit I dabbled in the 2 for 20 Barnes and Noble promo as well. IT IS JUST SO EASY AND CHEAPER. Wonderful haul and I’m glad the library is stocking up and you got so many good deals! 🙂

      Yeah, they are! I find some books sometimes that aren’t in the best condition and even though I want the book, I tend to pass them up. It’s so sad.

        Yesssss! Same, Kyera! I have run into quite a few of those sometimes that I would love it get but then it’s ripped or bent or has some weird smells or stickers and then it’s like oh man. 😛
