December ’17 Haul

December 30, 2017

I didn’t buy much in December – just one BookOutlet order, because I had a $20 gift card – but between that order and Christmas, I managed a pretty sizeable haul this month! I’m also expecting two orders from BookOutlet right now, so my January haul will be pretty big, too… ? But I swear February’s will be tiny!

While I didn’t stick to my ban as well as I should’ve (or at all, really…), I did a pretty good job with requesting hardly any ARCs, so at least I achieved half of my goals! It’s… something?

    1. Are those physical books from BookOutlet? I placed my first order with them a few days ago, but then I saw some reviews online complaining about the quality of the books they received so I’m a little worried!

      1. I do get a lot of my physical books from BookOutlet, yes! I feel like their quality is extremely hit-and-miss. I order from their scratch ‘n dent section sometimes, and some of my books come totally flawless, while others have shredded dust jackets and banged up pages and all. If you order from their regular section, though, if you receive anything damaged, they’ll send you another copy or refund you! You just have to contact them within a week of receiving your order, I think.

        1. I would only order from the regular section. I’ve heard too many people complain about the quality of Scratch and Dent books to risk it. Plus I’m a little picky when it comes to how my books look. I recently ordered a bunch of books from their regular section and I was pretty impressed with the quality.

    1. Such a HUGE haul! I did not buy many books in December since I’m trying to put my TBR in order a little bit. Still, I think this is not gonna happen since there are some awesome releases coming up in January!

    1. Wow that’s a great haul! I bought 2 books in December and have an Amazon gift card but I thought I’d wait till early January as there are some great ones being released then ?

    1. That’s a lot of books! I had a small haul in December, but I am pleased with all the books. I should post a review of December in a couple of days once family visits and the like have calmed down! Have a great New Year!

    1. I’m simply sitting here, copy/pasting:
      “But I swear February’s will be tiny!”
      And thinking: You’re going to need to link some kind of punishment to it if you DON’T have a tiny haul – which we know you won’t. Like.. You’re Destiny. That’s impossible.. :’D
