My (VERY LARGE) September Book Haul

This month’s haul is pretty huge. I tried to control myself like I have been for the past couple months, but I just couldn’t.  First, I went to the Boston Teen Author Festival this month—see my post about that event here—and picked up a ton of books so I could get them signed. Those are all in the first picture. Then I also made like a GIGANTIC Book Outlet order. All in all, I ended up with like 26 books this month. Which means my TBR has grown exponentially. Let me know what books you hauled this month in the comments, as well as any tricks you have for tackling your TBR.

1. The Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
2. Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter
3. Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza
4. Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
5. The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
6. Windwitch (The Witchlands #2) by Susan Dennard
7. Geekerella by Ashley Poston Continue reading


My Fall TBR

Hey y’all! IT’S FALL (although you can’t tell from the weather here in Boston, it’s been hot and humid beyond belief)! I’m a summer girl without a doubt—I love the warm weather and just want to wear dresses and skirts all year round—but, there are parts about fall that I can’t resist, especially here in New England. Western Mass, my true home, is absolutely beautiful in the fall with all of the foliage and farm land, and I always make an effort to go back and pick apples and pumpkins and eat tons of cider doughnuts.

I’m sure you’ve seen a lot of posts like this already, but I just wanted to put my two cents in, and show ya’ll what I want to read this fall, specifically books I feel like are going to be ‘fall’ books, if that makes sense. Let me know what’s on your TBR for the season!

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

These books are so beloved; they even made a movie (which I’ve yet to see). I can’t believe I haven’t read them yet, but they’re on my list—I even have the whole series on my shelf. I feel like it’s the cover that’s throwing me off and keeping me from starting, because it just looks so creepy and I don’t usually do creepy, but I mean October’s the time to do that right?

Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

I don’t know a ton about this story, I believe it’s somewhat historical fiction and takes place during the gold rush, but it just looks like fall to me with the cover full of rich browns, yellows, and oranges.

Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman

This is another historical fiction I guess? It’s a western. Maybe there’s just something about historical fictions or fall for me, or like orange and yellow covers? This has been sitting on my shelf for over a year and I’m ready to read it, it also helps that the sequel just came out or is coming out or something like that. Continue reading

September TBR


August just totally flew by for me, but I actually did pretty good when it came to reading. This month I’m setting a reasonable goal of three books—I will definitely read more by my issue is usually sticking to my TBR if it’s too long. But also I first need to catch up on my reviews before going crazy with these.

1.The Raven King (The Raven Cycle #4) by Maggie Stiefvater

I am so hyped for the last book in this series. I need to continue. I really hope Blue and Gansey work out. I know that’s not like the main issue or plot of this story but I’m a romantic and really how the curse is going to work has kept me guessing. Continue reading

August Book Haul

I can’t believe August is already over, this feels too surreal, everything is going by so quick. I have been doing such an “eh” job blogging (as I’ve lamented), and this has been my slowest month in a while. Also, I literally had bought no books this month until this past weekend. But to be fair, two of them I bought used and the rest were on sale(ish). These are mostly not my typical buys, but they were there and are on my list. Let me know what you hauled this month in the comments!

  1. The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan
  2. The Elite (The Selection #2) by Kiera Cass

August TBR


I’m honestly not sure what to expect from this month. I’m hoping to go to the beach a couple more times, which means some solid reading days, but the weather here has been iffy at best. I’m also moving late this month and really need to start packing up my shelves as well as the rest of my belongings. I’m thinking I’ll probably give you all a little photo tour once I move into my new place—I meant to with this one but never got around to it. I feel my space is very indicative of my personality so I’d love to share that.

Back to my TBR, this month I’m participating in the Make Me Read It Readathon—see my post here—so once people vote I’m going to have some books to read for that. I’m going to try to do three books for that challenge, I’m just not sure which yet, so I’m keeping this monthly TBR pretty short with three books—and they’re all in a series! Continue reading

July Book Haul

I can’t believe it’s basically August. I move into my new place this month and summer is just flying by. This month I controlled myself buying books mainly because I bought a lot of other stuff. These are mainly ones I got as part of Amazon’s Prime Day promotion. Let me know what you hauled this month in the comments!

1. Once and For All by Sarah Dessen
2. The Ends of the World (Conspiracy of Us #3) by Maggie Hall
3. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater 

4. Hummingbird by Sophia Elaine Hanson
5. Stuff I’ve Been Feeling Lately by Alicia Cook


July TBR


This is going to be pretty short and sweet, I did a summer tbr a couple a weeks ago and want to keep those books kind of out of my monthly updates.

1. Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi 

I’m really up for a reread of this book. I don’t think I’m going to bother with the first two, the thing is this one is my favorite with everything going on with Warner. He just makes me swoon.

2. Summer Days and Sumer Nights edited by Stephanie Perkins

This book is all about summer, I don’t know how it got left of my summer tbr post. I read the winter version around Christmas, and it was absolutely adorable. I can’t wait to pick this up while laying on the beach.

3. Signs Point to Yes by Sandy Hall

I read Sandy Hall’s A Little Something Different last summer and really enjoyed it. This sounds like a just as fluffy and cute contemporary.

let me know what your tbr is this month in the comments!

June Book Haul

I definitely went overboard on book buying this month. I didn’t really haul too much in April and May —like any big Book Outlet order—so I was having withdrawl really and it turned into this. Gosh my bank account and my poor overflowing shelves. The books in the last picture are from my local bookstore, I had some credit (not enough to cover all of them) and they had some signed copies so I couldn’t resist. The rest are from Book Outlet. Let me know what you hauled this month in the comments!

1. My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows
2. Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
3. Like a River Glorious (The Gold Seer Trilogy #2) by Rae Carson
4. Yellow Brick War (Dorothy Must Die #3) by Danielle Paige
5. The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine
6. Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oaks
7. Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
8. Unravel Me (Shatter Me #2) by Taher Continue reading
