Book Haul – November 2022

There were so many sales this month. So, this was not (entirely) my fault. You should all know by now that I have NO self control. Many of the ebooks I “bought” were either free or heavily discounted, and I couldn’t pass that up. Does it add to my ever-expanding TBR at an unsustainable rate? Of course, but I’ve given up on the illusion that I’ll ever read all the books I get. lol. Luckily, it was a pretty light NetGalley month because December is turning out to be the month of the eARCs so far. I got a few awesome physical ARCs from Orbit that I’m super excited about reading, as well. On the physical purchase front, I bought some signed books and special editions of things I’ve already purchased/read in the past along with a few new releases I’ve been looking forward to reading. The library haul was a bit light again last month because I had a ton of stuff to read already, especially ARCs. All in all, this was a truly stacked month of books I’m looking forward to (hopefully) reading soon.

Book Haul – October 2022

This was a slower month all around. Thank goodness. I only got four new eARCs, a handful each of digital and physical purchases, and one library book. I’ve even already read several of them! So, my TBR didn’t explode too much last month, which is good because the past couple of months have seen it swell by staggering amounts. Now I just need to focus on getting them all read. lol. I’m definitely convinced that reading and collecting books are two very distinct hobbies…

Book Haul – September 2022

It has been a couple months since I’ve done a book haul post, but I’ve only focused on September for this one because this list is unwieldy enough. I’ve been lucky to get some great ARCs, and I took advantage of the deep discounts during the audible sale. 🙂 The library also provided quite a few books and audiobooks, including both of the Emily Henry books I’d been waiting for. All in all, I acquired or borrowed a lot of great stuff that I’m sure I’ll be reading for years to come!

Book Haul – July 2022

I was doing great at keeping my book purchases down for the first couple weeks of this month. Then the BOGO 50% off all hardbacks happened at B&N, and all my plans got derailed. I also got approved for quite a few eARCs this month, many of which are sequels that I am very excited to read. Overall, it has been a great month of book acquisitions, and I’m happy to have them all even if it has caused my TBR to continue ballooning uncontrollably. lol.

Book Haul – June 2022

After the buying sprees last month, I really wanted to have more self control in June, and I succeeded, for the most part. I only received five eARCs, which is so much less than last month. I also only “bought” one ebook because it was part of a free promotion on Amazon. The most shocking thing, however, is that I only bought five physical copies this month, which is quite low compared to recent months. I did use the library a lot, though. I checked out five digital books and three physical ones. Overall, I’m glad I was able to give my shelves a break for a bit, and I hope to continue this trend in July because August is an absolute smorgasbord of new releases I’ve had my eye on for a while.

Book Haul – May 2022

So, you know how last month I said I was out of shelf space? It would make sense for me to slow down my book buying. Right? Well…instead I bought two new bookcases and continued plowing ahead with purchases. lol. In my defense, I did purchase a lot of ebooks too (thanks to Amazon’s deal to earn a special credit), which will help save shelf space. I also got a slew of new eARCs that will be out later this year and borrowed an audiobook from the library. Despite getting way too many books again this month, I’m proud to have somewhat limited my physical purchases. If not for the B&N coupon I got last week, I actually would have ended the month with far fewer new phsyical copies, but they had to tempt me in at the last minute with a discount on my entire order. Oh well. I’ll try to have more self control next month…

Book Haul – April 2022

All of my motivation to keep book buying to a minimum disappeared this month, which you’ll see below. I went a bit overboard. I actually think I bought more books this month than the first three months of 2022 combined…and that’s not counting the ARCs and library loans. To make matters worse, I’m officially out of shelf space. So, I have no where to put the new books other than a giant stack. I really wish we had bought the house with all the nice built-ins in the library. It would make my book addiction a lot easier to accommodate. Oh well.

Book Haul – March 2022

This month has been somewhat of an eclectic mix of eARCs, purchases, and physical ARCs. In total, I purchased eight books this month, which was double what I bought last month. Several of them were physical copies of eARCs I’ve read recently and loved. I also received three physical ARCs this month. I don’t get them that often so it is always exciting to open the mailbox and find one. 🙂 I’m looking forward to reading (or re-reading if I ever make the time for it) all of these books and am happy to have them on my shelves in one form or another.

Book Haul – February 2022

It’s been another slow book buying month for me as I only bought four books this month. I really have been trying to spend less money on books, and it seems to be working for now. However, I’ve acquired quite a few books through the library and obtained a lot of eARCs. I also received two books for my birthday. So, all in all, I’ve picked up quite a few new books when it is all put together. Luckily, most of them won’t be taking up space on my shelves because I don’t have much space left, but I’m excited to read them all soon (if I haven’t already) regardless of the format or source.
