I Have No Shelf-Control: A Book Haul

This is…pretty long overdue.

I’m going to just let it speak for itself.


Sometime in April –

I preordered a book. I have an allowance, and this is what I chose to spend it on. It comes at the end of October and I’m dying!

A Darker Shade of Magic Collector’s Edition

I also won a giveaway from That Bookshelf Bitch

 

I also got another review copy from Blogging for Books

And the finished copy of a book I reviewed a while back (Netgalley Review: I Love You With All My Butt) from Estelle at Workman Publishing.

May 13th –

My mother bought me two books and some bookmarks. for several reasons.

I had to get my blood drawn – and after stabbing me three times, they couldn’t get enough so I had to go a second time the next week and she felt bad.

I also had an anxiety attack at school yesterday because I was wearing my Friday uniform and didn’t know we weren’t allowed to (I hadn’t been at school the day prior due to afore mentioned blood drawing and subsequent feeling terrible and thus didn’t hear) and got yelled at by the principal and had an anxiety attack. That was…not so fun. I sat on the ground hyperventilating and crying for a solid 15 minutes. My friend Patty got me water, I was ignored my several adults. The fact that this was doing an AP testing week may have contributed to my freak out – thank goodness I didn’t have a test that day.

I also finished AP testing without dying.

So, she bought me some books. To appease/congratulate/reward me.

May 21st –

My best friend took us into Barnes and Noble after we watched Everything Everything (Adaptation Review: Everything Everything).

And signed copies make me weak.


May 26th –

I won a giveaway and the book came in the mail. Signed with some bonus bookmarks!


June + July –

I bought a bunch of books from Barnes and Noble with gift cards I had saved from the holidays.

These arrived:

Also In June –

I went to both Washington DC and New York City with my cousins!

In DC we went to this NASA library and well…

I came back with a box of NASA books… So thats good. I may have a problem…

In New York, we visited The Strand (a famous indie bookstore).

I got some bargain books and a bunch of cool pins plus a patch. Again, I have a problem…

Other random souvenirs:

Plus a Hershey’s mug.


These are all the books I got in the last few months!

Plus Pride & Prejudice and A Thousand Splendid Suns but these are my summer reading, not just “because I wanted it” purchases.

I also reorganized my bookshelves though!


I hope you guys liked this. Let me know what you think! Have you read any of these books? Want to read them? Loved, liked, hated them?Judging me intensely? Let me know!

  1. I love seeing other people’s book hauls!
    Gork, The Teenage Dragon is one I’d definitely like to read someday, but it isn’t at the top of my “want to read”-list. The cover just looks fun, haha.
    Everything Shadowhunter & SoC is amazing! I’m really looking forward to reading Lord of Shadows and Crooked Kingdom. Hope you love the other books of those series as much as I did. 🙂
    You certainly got lucky with giveaways and such, haha. I never have that much luck when it comes to those things unfortunately.

    All in all, nice book haul!
    [I’m posting my July book-haul next week and it’s huge.. Don’t know whether to be proud or ashamed, haha.]
