Eyy so it’s been a hot second since my last haul and I’ve counted and I got like 25 books in under 2 months?? And I haven’t been reading much… howwww???

Yeah you know don’t even ask!! Should we just get into the haul, I think that’s a good idea.

  • Crowns of Croswald by D. E. Night: the lovely author reached out to me and asked if I’d like to read her book and I of course said yes. The cover is stunning and it sounds like a really fun middle grade
  • The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky: I was in the bookstore and saw this one and thought I should give it another chance. I didn’t really enjoy it when I watched the movie but I think I’ll love it now that I’m older.
  • Leah On The Offbeat by Becky Albertalli: My faves at Penguin Random House SA sent this one my way and I’m super excited because I love Becky and hyped to dive in and see Simon and the gang again!
  • Words In Deep Blue by Cath Crowley: A million thanks to Pan Macmillan for sending this one my way. It sounds so cool and I’ve heard great things so super excited to get into it.
  • The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo: I traded this one with a friend and the concept sounds super cool. Plus I really want to get into poetry.
  • Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer: okay so I went to a second-hand bookstore and I didn’t have a physical copy of this one so I’ve been waiting to get it but not making it a priority so I decided to get it super cheap. Plus it’s for charity so…


  • Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman: all my friends rave about this book and I follow the author on twitter and she’s really cool so I mean, I have to try it for myself.
  • From Twinkle With Love by Sandhya Menon: Thanks to Jonathan Ball Publishers for sending this to me. I started it but wasn’t in the mood and am really hoping to love this book. Its about filmmaking so fingers-crossed.
  • Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow: Pan Mac sent me a finished copy because my sister read this book and enjoyed it so I really want to give it a go.
  • Furyborn by Claire Legrand: a local book box was doing had an epic theme for I think July and it had all my fave fandoms plus I was wanting to get this book so I bought it. It’s a hardcover with deckled edges which is always a bonus!
  • My Box-Shaped Heart by Rachel Lucas: This one came in my Secret Book Box rep box and it sounds like a really quick contemporary and I’m intrigued to see what I think.
  • The Little Mermaid & Other Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Anderson: I was very much privileged to be sent this STUNNING book by JB, so a million thank you’s, and it’s so beautiful and I love it. It’s the new hardcover with illustrations and interactive flaps and I just can’t deal with the beauty!!


  • The Sisterhood Of The Travelling Pants by Ann Brashares: another buy at the second-hand store because I loved the movies so why not??
  • Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson: I picked this up on a complete whim and it’s now one of my all-time favourites of the year and even of all time. I adore this book and just READ IT. I have a review, click here to read it.
  • Save The Date by Morgan Matson: Thanks a million to JB for sending this super fun read to me! I went on a bit of a marathon and recently just finished this one and really enjoyed it.
  • The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson: I read this book SO FAST AHH. I was lucky enough to be gifted this one from someone online and just THANK YOU!
  • The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo: The lovely people at Pan Mac sent the 3 books my way and am planning on getting to them before King of Scars.


  • Tyler Johnson Was Here by Jay Coles: I was in the bookstore and saw this and was like I NEED TO GET IT. I didn’t even think to find it in a store so had to grab it super fast.
  • City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare: of course in that second-hand store I jumped at the chance to get the US cover because my fave Jace is on it and I really like that cover plus it was cheap so you know!
  • I Was Born For This by Alice Oseman: Thanks to JB for sending this one my way. I’ve heard great things about the author’s books so really excited to read this one.
  • Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart: Pan Mac sent an ARC my way and this one really intrigues to me so thanks a million! It’s now already out but still super hyped.
  • The Unpredictability of Being Human by Linni Ingemundsen: I got a surprise package from Penguin and this one sounds super fun. A great thank you to Penguin.


  • Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling: They had a hardcover with the original UK cover and my brother has decided he wants to read them and it was quite cheap so I’m obviously not going to not get it.
  • I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Forman: I love Gayle Forman and needed to get my hands on her new book so thanks to JB for sending this to me. Super hyped to get into this one.
  • The Surface Breaks by Louise O’Neill: I’ve been wanting to get this since I heard it was a Little Mermaid retelling and saw this stunning hardcover (also very cheap) so couldn’t resist. I hope it’s good.
  • A Study In Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro: I also got this sent to me by a lovely friend and have heard great things and it sounds like my kind of mystery book so super excited.
  • Brightly Burning by Alexa Donne: I’m not a sci-fi person but it sounds really cool and I’ve heard the author has a cool youtube channel so I’m excited to see what I think of it. Thanks to JB for sending to me.

    The last time I went to a bookstore was on Black Friday so not that long ago. I bought like 25 books this month alone so I need to calm down as well. I still need to get The Unexpected Everything but I do have The Poet X, A Study in Charlotte, Since You’ve Been Gone, Save the Date, Leah on the Offbeat, The Grisha Trilogy, and Grace and Fury! I hope you love the Grisha Trilogy!!
