Hi lovelies- here is my August Book Haul for you all!
I feel like I say the same thing in every haul post, but I can’t believe it’s already September. I’m already starting to think about getting Christmas decorations and presents, and we have Halloween and I have my birthday between now and then!
This month I had a lot of extra expenses, like I needed new glasses and I had to pay my road tax, so I didn’t have a ton of spare pennies for books. I still picked up 10 books from various places, and this month I was overwhelmed with books that were sent to me from publishers.
Without further delay, here are the books I have accumulated in the month of August:
I bought these books from a little independent bookshop in Keswick.
The Scorch Trials by James Dashner
The Death Cure by James Dashner
The Kill Order by James Dashner
I already have the first book in the series, The Maze Runner, and I saw the rest of the books in the series for £4 each in the little shop. I thought that was an absolute bargain!
How We Met by Katy Regan
I saw this book in the shop for only £2 and I thought it again, was a bargain, and I remembered I have The Story Of Us by this author.
I bought these books from Amazon.
The Program by Suzanne Young
I saw a review of this book in one of Elle Fowler’s ‘Glitterature’ videos and it sounded like a fantastic dystopian read. I look forward to picking this up.
Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid
I saw that this book was being handed out at the huge book convention in America and it peaked my interest. It also had a lot of great reviews from the people that had read it. I enjoy reading books that have a road trip element, I like the escapism and adventure.
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
This is yet another book I discovered through Youtube, and it sounded like a great YA contemporary read. It’s supposed to be about a girl that has written letters to her ex-boyfriends, but never sends them, until she discovers somebody has accidentally sent them. Imagine the repercussions from that!
I bought these books from Tesco.
The Memory Book by Rowan Coleman
I like to look over the books in Tesco because they always have the best deals. I spotted this book and the blurb reminded me a little of The Dead Wife’s Handbook, which is one of my favourites.
Daughter by Jane Shemilt
The cover of this book leaped out at me at first, and then I read the blurb and it sounds really interesting. I love a good mystery, and this sounds like it’ll deliver excellent results.
The Telling Error by Sophie Hannah
I’d seen this around other blogs and I saw it on offer. The blurb is intriguing and I’m hoping this will be a book I can’t put down.
This month, Hodder & Stoughton joined forces with Headline over on Bookbridgr so there were a ton of new books to request, and there were so many fantastic ones.
I’d like to thank the lovely folk at Bookbrigr, Headline and Hodder & Stoughton for these books.
Gutenburg’s Apprentice by Alix Christie
The Tell-Tale Heart by Jill Dawson
In Search Of Solace by Emily Mackie
Seeing Other People by Mike Gayle
Beautiful Day by Elin Hilderbrand
