September Haul: a new style of haul posting (and lots of library loans!)

September 30, 2020

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

I’m starting something new with this month’s haul post! Since I do an ARC update every month that includes my ARC haul, there’s no need in repeating it in two posts — so from now on, my regular haul post will only include purchases, freebies, library loans, and gifts (and video games!) with all of my ARC hauls being saved for my monthly ARC Apocalypse update.

physical purchases and gifts

A very exciting gift, a couple of used book purchases, and FINALLY, the new Allie Brosh release! 😍

More about Destiny @ Howling Libraries

Just a horror aficionado/geek girl trying to juggle motherhood, reading, blogging, gaming, and everyday life.

    1. So many haha, I hope you will enjoy all of them!


    1. AH! White is for Witching!! 😲 Only my all time favourite book (well, tied with one or two others…). I don’t know many readers who have enjoyed that one, so I don’t like to talk about it much (keep it wonderful and precious for myself, haha). But I will cross my fingers that you love it!

    1. If you want to slide your secrets to all your awesome sounding freebies that’d be great for me, not my kindle, but for me.

    1. I did end up taking out a couple of graphic novels out from the library. So I can’t wait to figure out which ones fit in with the prompts for graphics-a-thon. I am very excited for that. I also am very curious about Monster Prom. I am going to have to look that up later.

Say hello! ♥
