October ’17 Haul & Wrap-up

I’m so sad that October is over, but one good thing about the end of every month is writing up the end-of-month posts like this one! I have so much fun tallying up my stats and showing off my new goodies. IΒ swore my haul this month would beΒ nothing compared to last month’s, and while I stuck to my rule of buying almost nothing in October, I learned that I have some very amazing friends (and a wonderful fiance!) who gifted me so many incredible books for my birthday. I am so, so blessed, and my heart is so full, and I love all of you too much for words.

Moving on from my sappy self, I’ll start with my wrap-up, as usual:

eBook Haul (Purchased):

My eBook haul was also waaay more extensive than I intended for it to be, but HarperTeen randomly auto-approved me for a metric crapload of titles on Edelweiss this month, and who was I to say no? Anyways, because there were so many, I’m going to be compiling a separate blog post for my October eARC haul, which will go up later this week.

That’s it for most of my haul; like I said, later this week, I’ll upload an e-ARC haul as well! Since they’ll be getting their own post, I’ll add a mini-synopsis for each one in case any of you are interested in requesting some of them. ❀

Did you haul any fun books or bookish goodies this month?

  2. Cant wait to see what you think of sleeping beauties! I’m a little bit in and I like it but man some of the characters suck (like they’re written really well but are sucky humans and I need them to be killed already). Awesome Haul and happy late Birthday ❀
