I am so disappointed in myself with my May book haul. I’ve been so good about not buying books and in May I couldn’t stop buying them. I became addicted to Book Outlet again. It always happens when they have a sale. I can go weeks without ever going on their website and then they will have a sale and of course I love a good sale, especially on books. Then I become addicted to their website again and religiously check for new books every single day. It’s a vicious cycle. It doesn’t help that the sale this time lasted for like four days. I think that I have it out of my system again though. With that being said, here is my pretty large book haul for the month of May.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
I preordered A Court of Mist and Fury and Bloomsbury was doing a preorder deal where if you sent in your proof of purchase they would send you a ACOMAF tote bag. One side of the bag has part of the book cover and this side pictured is a quote from the book.
I also preordered The Hidden Oracle, because well…RICK RIORDAN. Enough said about that. I love his writing, I love his books, he’s totally a God in disguise. 😛 I also got all the Kane Chronicles e-books, because all of his books were on sale the other day for $1.99 each. Hearts, Fingers, and Other Things to Cross is the final book in the Broken Hearts & Revenge trilogy and I had to have it, because that series seriously has my heart. I want to read and own all of Morgan Matson’s books, so I couldn’t pass up The Unexpected Everything when I seen it at Target. Dying to see how The 5th Wave series ends. I had to snatch up the final book on release day.
I won Queen of Hearts in a giveaway on Goodreads. I won it last month, but I didn’t have the book at the time of my April book haul. I’m doing a buddy read of Mistborn with Maren, Tricia, and Lauren. I’ve been wanting to read Mistborn, so I figured this was a good time to get it and read it. It’ll be fun reading it with some friends. I’ve also been wanting to get the Doctor Who Time Lord Fairy Tales book forever now and finally got it.
Here is my RIDICULOUS Book Outlet haul. This is multiple orders. I’m going to say that this is about FIVE orders. Yes, I placed five freaking orders with them this month, sigh. Two were before the sale, because there was limited copies and I knew there wouldn’t be any by time the sale started. The other three orders were from when the sale was going on.
Told you it was kind of ridiculous, lol. The only thing that is making me feel KIND of okay about it is that they are all books that I have really been wanting to read. I’ve already read The 5th Wave and The Infinite Sea, but I didn’t own them and I wanted them; and because The Last Star was just released, I figured this was a good time to finally get the full series in hardcover. Things I Can’t Explain I have been dying to get, but I refused to pay $20 on Amazon. I was stoked when I seen it on Book Outlet for just a little over $3! If you guys remember the TV show Clarissa Explains It All, it’s about her as an adult.
I have been slowly collecting the Artemis Fowl and Harry Potter books as I find them in Goodwill or other thrift stores. I was happy to find a few to add to my collection. I read the first two Artemis Fowl books, so I am excited that I have the third book! I’m still missing 1, 2, 7, and 8. For HP I am still missing the Goblet of Fire and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
That’s all for my pretty crazy book haul. Have you read any of these books? Link me to your book haul posts if you have one. I would love to check out all the new books that you got this month.
I hope you have an amazing day!
