January ’18 Haul

I know, I know. “I thought you weren’t going to buy books in January, Destiny!” “I thought you were on a book ban!” Well, in my defense, most of the books that I actually purchased, came from a boxing day sale on BookOutlet. For the rest, well… I have no excuse.

  1. How do you have time to read so many books?? I keep eyeing up my pile of 5 library books and am already overwhelmed by it xD

    Also, I do also realllly want to get the Mortal Instruments Series ❤ The first film pulled me in and now I have to satisfy my curiosity


    1. I don’t know, lmao! Sometimes I look at my shelves, and all of the upcoming releases I want to read, and I think, “I will totally die before I read all of my books…” LMAO!

      I’ve still never seen any of the films or TV shows or anything! I heard the show spoils some things in the book series, so I’m gonna try to finish the books before watching it, but I really want to check it out. 😀

  2. Oh my gosh. Your haul is amazing! So lucky to find those stormlight archive hardcovers on book outlet. And I am secretly jealous of your earcs. I will eagerly await your review of Pitch Dark as I have been anticipating that book for two years now.


    1. Thanks lovely! I couldn’t believe it when I lucked up on those hardbacks. There was only 1 in stock of each at the time I ordered them! I just wish they weren’t so banged up, but hey, I got a super cheap deal on them!

      I’m gonna try to get the Pitch Dark review up some time in the next week, at the latest. 😀 It was really good!

  3. I’m repeating myself because I find myself SO funny.

    “Weren’t you going on a book buying ban?”
    Destiny’s answer: Second pile, third book from the top.

    Alsoooo, I love the cover of Reign of the Fallen! My copy arrived yesterday and I loooove it. Except for the pink, because, you know. *I’m going to forever say this to you.*

    Curious to see what you’ll think of Because You Love To Hate Me! I was kind of disappointed by it and the [booktubers, was it?] parts after the stories got on my nerves. They felt so.. useless. So definitely wondering about your opinion on those, haha.

    At least you’ll never have nothing to read!
    [Maybe you should simply ask certain sites to block your purchases for a month.. or two..]


    1. LMAO I swear to god… I literally CACKLED when you said that earlier. Like, laughing my ass off, out loud, the baby looking at me like I was crazy…


      Okay, so on that one, I honestly only got it because it was on sale for TWO DOLLARS on the kindle store. I have VERY mediocre-to-low hopes for it. :s I’ll definitely let you know whenever I pick it up!

      Psh. As if. I feel like I practically keep BookOutlet running lmao

      1. Seriously, every time you mention cackling I’m seeing a pinkish person cackling like a witch while pointing with crooked fingers or something. [MY BRAIN IS SO FCKD UP.]
        The baby simply thought “Oh, finally showing how crazy she is, is she.” He’s on to you!

        I DO NOT.

        Okay, then I can see the temptation to buy it anyway. For two dollars, it might be worth finding out if all the meh-reviews are right, haha.

        Hm.. Well, I can definitely see why you’d think that.. Yup..


  4. The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly is one of my all time faves! and oooh, i die over those editions of tmi every time i see them. def want to get my hands on them this year. i love the spines. I cannot wait to get my hand on beneath the sugar sky and reign of the fallen too. so many good books have released already this year.


  5. ugh hell yes book outlet!!! also will be on the lookout for your thoughts on tiffany haddish’s book because she is amazing. plus need your thoughts on ace of shades. & i forgot wires and nerve vol 2 was out!!!! yippee


  6. THIS IS AWEEESOME. I got five books this month, even though I told myself I wouldn’t get any until I finished all the books I received for Christmas, but it’s sooo haaard. I hope you enjoy all of these books! Can’t wait for your next haul 🙂
