It’s the end of another month, which means it’s time to talk about my haul for the month!
After months of very few or NO print ARCs, it feels so weird to even have this section in my haul again!
- Body Talk — Kelly Jensen
- Kushiel’s Dart — Jacqueline Carey
- Crossroads — Laurel Hightower (READ)
- Architects of Memory — Karen Osborne (unsolicited)
I did haul a few too many ARCs this month, but I still managed to stick to my ARC limitations, so at least there’s that? Plus, I got a few EXTREMELY exciting anticipated releases that I’m still screaming over. ?
- Kingdom of the Wicked — Kerri Maniscalco
- The Infinity Courts — Akemi Dawn Bowman
- When No One is Watching — Alyssa Cole
- The Project — Courtney Summers
- Remote Control — Nnedi Okorafor
- Dustborn — Erin Bowman
- Witchcraft Cocktails — Julia Halina Hadas (READ)
- A Gentle Noble’s Vacation Recommendation, Vol. 1 — Misaki (READ)
- There Are Things I Can’t Tell You — Edako Mofumofu (READ)
- Fangs — Sarah Andersen (READ)
- The Complete Grimoire — Lidia Pradas (READ)
- Daphne Byrne — Laura Marks (READ)
What do we all think of the new NetGalley audiobook program? I think the new app is pretty neat, but I haven’t seen many ALCs on there that I wanted yet — just The Switch, which I’m super excited to listen to! The rest of these are from LibroFM, as usual.
- The Switch — Beth O’Leary
- Empire of Wild — Cherie Dimaline
- This is My America — Kim Johnson
- The Voting Booth — Brandy Colbert (READ)
- Wicked as Sin — Shayla Black (READ)
I think this is the most I’ve bought in a while!
- Fence: Rivals — C.S. Pacat
- The Lightning Thief: Illustrated Edition — Rick Riordan (READ)
- The House on Abigail Lane — Kealan Patrick Burke (READ)
- The Green Witch — Arin Murphy-Hiscock
- TRUEL1F3 — Jay Kristoff
I think this is the most excited I’ve been about my new Kindle store hauls in a while!
- The Bridge Kingdom — Danielle L. Jensen (kindle sale, $0.99)
- Tru Blue — Melissa Foster (kindle sale, $0.99)
- Worst Laid Plans — Samantha Kolesnik
- Graveyard Smash: Women of Horror Anthology
- Unboxed — Briana Morgan
- Chills — Mary SanGiovanni (kindle sale, $1.99)
And a few freebies:
- Mask of Shadows — Linsey Miller
- New Girl in Town — Rebel Carter
- Forest of Bones — Jessie Thomas
Nothing this month! I’ve really been trying to focus on books I already own, so I don’t borrow much lately besides audiobooks of overdue review copies. ?
We finally got our Xbox One replacement in, and I’m so happy! I’ve added a “Game Pass Ultimate” section to this area, even though they’re subscription games and not permanent hauls.
- Xbox Game Pass Ultimate:
- Steam sales [PC]:
- Humble Bundle [PC]:
- Epic Games freebies [PC]:
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!

ooh I really want to read Alyssa Cole’s thrillers. I keep meaning to read stuff by her in general but that book sounds amazing! can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it 🙂
thriller* idk where the s came from, lol
It’s been SO good so far! It’s honestly really dread-inducing from the start because the racism and toxic attitudes are just so authentic and awful.
Great haul! I’m jealous you got Kingdom of the Wicked!
Thank you! Aww, I would share with you if I could 🙁
Oh you got so many great arcs this month!! I hope you enjoyed them all and have fun reading! ?
Thank you!!! <3
Oh I didn’t know they released an illustrated edition for The Lightning Thief!
I don’t feel like I see it talked about much but it’s so lovely and seems so well made!
some exciting books for you to read!
<3 <3 thank you!
lovely haul! oh my gosh, the infinity courts and the project are two of my most anticipated releases, i can’t wait to see what you think!!?
Thank you! Omg I’m so excited for both of them I could cry. I keep considering just totally ditching all of my other ARCs so I can go ahead and just read those 2 and a couple of others that are also still a little ways out lmao.
Some of thoses looks quite interesting.. and all the pretty covers!! ❤️
The flat share & the Switch has been somes that I’ve had been wanting to read for a while too! … but I sadly hadn’t gotten to it yet xd
Yessss, super blessed by the cover gods lately haha! <3 Oh The Flatshare is SO GOOD - I hope you can check it out soon!
I’ve been wanting to read True Blue for a while. You’ll have to let me know what you think of it!
Will do! Have you read any of the books in the series before this one? I didn’t know it was a spin-off!
I haven’t read from this author yet. I’m always hearing good things though!
