November ’17 Haul

Since last month’s posts required me to split my October haul into two separate blog entries, I decided, starting now, I’ll be separating my haul and wrap-up posts! So, today I’ll share my November haul with you, and tomorrow, my November wrap-up!

I put myself back on a book ban this month (though I broke it to place a Black Friday sale order from BookOutlet, but that won’t be here until December), so this haul is substantially smaller than September’s and October’s hauls were! I’ve also put myself on a semi-ban from ARCs, so I now only request ARCs after asking myself, “Would I pre-order this?” (If the answer is no, I leave it be.)

eARCs:

Robots vs. Fairies – anthology – releases 01.09.18
This is an anthology of stories that alternate between if fairies ruled the world, and if robots ruled the world, essentially. It is absolutely delightful and I am HANDS DOWN rooting for fairies! *currently reading*

Children of Blood and Bone – Tomi Adeyemi – releases 03.06.18
A high fantasy story about a young woman who’s been tasked with bringing magic back into the world and reclaiming her home. I feel so privileged to have been granted my “wish” for this title on NetGalley!

White Rabbit – Caleb Roehrig – releases 04.24.18
An own-voice LGBTQ+ thriller in which the main character must enlist his ex-boyfriend’s help to clear his sister’s name in a murder mystery.

Three Sides of a Heart – anthology – releases 12.19.17
A collection of short stories about love triangles. I was supremely not interested in this until I saw some of the names involved, and learned that is some great diverse rep in this collection. *December TBR*


How was your November haul? Were you on a book ban, or did you add lots of new titles to your shelves?

    I was going to buy less books and I did. I bought only 3 but then I got gifts and won some books and got some e arcs… You know how it goes, haha.

    I’m curious to see what you will think of Hex. He’s a Dutch author so…
    And I really enjoyed The Lies of Locke Lamora though it took some getting used to how the book was written. 🙂

      I really lucked up on that one! She only had something like 20 or 30 copies to give away and it was first-come-first-serve, and most of them were ARCs. I was actually shocked that I got in there fast enough to get a hardback, but I am so grateful to her for it. ❤

    I love your approach to ARCs! I have been much more strict on what I request because when I first started blogging, I had no self-control on Netgalley. I was accepted for an ARC of Reign of the Fallen and I’m so stinking excited for it! I can barely contain myself. Great haul! Hope you enjoy all of the books.:)

    I’m so damn excited to see what you think of Atheists Who Kneel and Pray! I actually JUST bought a physical copy, because I know it’s going on my “top 17 of 2017” list… and like… I need a picture, obv! (AKA: I’m a hot mess) BUT amazing haul! And I can’t wait to read some of those ARCs with you! ❤

      Thank you! Yeah, Renegades is freaking huge! And heavy! But it reads really fast – to me, anyways! I know some people on Goodreads have said it’s slow and boring for them. I haven’t had almost ANY reading time lately, though, so I’m not far into it yet. 😦 I hope you get your wishlist books! ❤

    I also got an ARC of Children of Blood and Bone from Netgalley! I am so jealous of your ARC for Reign of the Fallen! I got denied by Penguin’s First to Read program 😦

    EPIC book haul Destiny! I feel like we may be in the same boat this month haha! my Bookoutle order is set to arrive on 12/5 which would’ve made my haul post even more ridic lol. I also started this month by splitting my haul from wrap-up cause length. Tarryn Fisher is on my list of authors to check out & I’m so happy you were granted your wish for Children of Blood and Bone! *excited emoji* I have a feeling it will be one of my fave reads of 2018, happy reading Destiny 🙂

      Thank you so much! Hahah ooooh, yay for BookOutlet orders! Mine doesn’t have an estimated delivery date – probably because USPS in my region has been RIDICULOUS lately, lmao. I hope it gets here soon, though! I’m crossing my fingers for early next week. Ooooh, I hope we both love Tarryn’s writing – and Children of Blood and Bone! 💗
