August Haul: aaaaaall the graphic novels & manga

August 28, 2020

It’s the end of another month, which means it’s time to talk about my haul for the month!

physical review copies

  • Witchcraft Cocktails — Julia Halina Hadas (READ)
    • This is a finished copy I was sent after loving the eARC, and I’m so excited! I can see myself using this recipe book a LOT in the future, especially in the colder months with all the tasty cold weather drinks in here. ?
  • Last Case at a Baggage Auction — Eric J. Guignard

digital review copies

I got quite a few eARCs this month, but almost all of them were either graphic novels, manga, or 100-pg-or-less novellas, so I don’t think I did too badly in hindsight!

audio review copies

Nothing this month!

physical purchases and gifts

All of the Jonathan Janz titles were books I already owned in ARC formats, but the publisher’s sale was for $5 hardbacks and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to buy finished copies!

  • The Henna Wars — Adiba Jaigirdar
  • You Should See Me in a Crown — Leah Johnson (READ)
    • This was a PRE-ORDER that just now arrived… ? It was on backorder and then it sat at a post office near me for 6 weeks! Thankfully, I had read the eARC, so it wasn’t too upsetting to wait, but I am relieved it finally arrived!
  • Disappearance at Devil’s Rock — Paul Temblay
  • Fortuna Sworn — K.J. Sutton
  • The Turtle Boy — Kealan Patrick Burke
    • This was KPB’s debut (I think) and was put back into print for the first time in a really long time!

digital purchases, freebies, and gifts

Yo. SOOOOO many good ebook sales this month! Most of these were $1 or $2!

And a few freebies: 


I registered online this month for an out of state card to the Brooklyn Public Library so I could access the New York Public Library online system!


This was the first month in a while that we liked the Humble Bundle monthly games enough not to skip, and I’m pretty excited about a few of these!

What was your favorite thing you hauled this month — or if you didn’t haul anything, is there anything you hope to haul soon? Let me know in the comments!
