Hello lovelies – today I wanted to share with you my half year book haul.
As you may already know, I embarked on a Kill My TBR. This post kind of serves as a bit of an update in that regards. In that post I explained that this project means different things for different people, but for me it meant that I wasn’t go to buy a ton of books for them to just sit on my bookcases. I also decided not to request books from publishers – but, I have still received some that are not included in this haul.
Obviously, given the title of this blog post, I have bought some books this year. I’m very happy to say that it’s far less that this time last year. Baring in mind I didn’t write haul posts for January or February, at this point last year I had bought 117 books. That doesn’t include any books I received from publishers or from giveaways. So, if I told you I’ve only bought 26 books this year so far – you can see that’s a vast improvement.
Anyway, here are the books I bought so far this year…

There we go! That’s all of the books I’ve bought this year so far. I clearly have a teeny tiny obsession with David Levithan, and I’ve got most of the ones shown here signed – apart from Every You, Every Me because I got that after the event. I also went to get the SJ Watson books signed. Quite a few of these books I’d seen through Booktube, and I’m so grateful to have been introduced to them. Those include: Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda and Playlist For The Dead.
If you have any recommendations based on what I’ve already bought, let me know. I love finding new books.
