The I’m-Supposed-To-Be-On-A-Book-Buying-Ban Book Haul


Guy’s we need to get me one of those shocker collars they (cruelly) put on dogs and rig it to go of every time I enter a book store!!! I last 10 days into September before following my friend into the book store!!! 10 days that’s it – pretty pathetic. The only books that we’re meant to be in this post were going to be the books that came on preorder, but nope I have another pretty decent sized haul. Dammit Amy!


Sorry about the glare! Stupid sun interrupting with my photos!

Preordered Beauties!

This was meant to be all the new books I got this month!

12053329_528033190682126_1740707858_nSlasher Girls and Monster Boys by Various Authors! 

I am so excited to dive into this next month! I can’t wait to read stories by authors I love plus find new fabulous authors to fan girl over!
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

I just finished this the other day and it was amazing!! So much cuteness and fun!! 


Firewalker (The Worldwalker Trilogy #2) by Josephine Angelini

Yes, cover change. Poo. I’ve read this one and although I still enjoyed it, it didn’t have me flailing like a pscyho fangirl like Trial by Fire did. But look how fantastic the actual cover of the hard back is!!! B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L.


The One Thing by Marci Lyn Curtis 

I am SO excited to dive into this as soon as possible!!! By this time next week I hope to have read this! I’ve heard people say it was one of their favoruite reads of the year and I NEEEEEEED to know why!!!


Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass #4) by Sarah J. Maas

Yes, I brought the hardback when I only have the paperback of the other books and now the series doesn’t match – story of my life. THIS BOOK WAS FANTASTIC! YOU MUST READ IT. GO. NOW.

The I-Went-Into-Dymocks-And-Have-The-Self-Control-Of-Drug-Addict Books


And only three of these books were on my TBR before heading into Dymocks. *shakes head*


The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking #1) by Patrick Ness

I have been wanting to read this series for the longest time!! AND NOW I CAN FINALE START IT *Grand Final Sized Crowd Cheering***


Annihilation (Southern Reach #1) by Jeff VanderMeer

So my friend was picking this up and I was like ohhhh preeettyyyy coooovvverrrr and then I brought it. AMY WHY YOU SO WEAK????!!


The Martian by Andy Weir 

I actually literally just finished this and it was AMAZING!!! OMG FANTASTIC! I actually wanted the other cover (you know, the orange one with an astronaut being thrown back) but that would mean leaving the book in the store and going to order it online, and that felt like breaking the book buying ban to badly. And apparently buying a book in the store doesn’t feel as bad as online. Don’t ask why I think that. I have no clue, what wrong with me! 


Me Before You (Me Before You #1) by Jojo Moyes

I read this the other week and can I just tell you I was a mess. A sobbing, snotting, desperate mess. I was Not Okay. I’m excited for the sequel!!

Room by Emma Donoghue 

Again I wanted the really great cover but as I explained my brain thought ordering a book online would be breaking the ban to hard. HAVE YOU SEEN THE MOVIE TRAILER FOR ROOM. I NEED TO READ THE BOOK AND SEE THE MOVIE NOW. 


Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

I can’t believe I waited so long to read this!!! Rookie mistake!! If you haven’t read this yet I suggest you go rectify that problem!!!

So that’s my September 2015 book haul! Have you read any of these? Any books I need devour RIGHT NOW!? What books did you buy these month?

  1. Awesome book haul! 🙂
    I can’t wait to read Slasher Girls either! I’m reading it in October too.
    And The Knife of Never Letting Go is SOO amazing! I can’t wait to see what you think about it!
    Book buying bans are pointless, we always end up breaking them anyway LOL. The downside of the book buying ban is feeling more guilty for buying than you would if you weren’t on one.

      1. I already feel bad buying books when I have so many to read. So I feel even worse when I say I won’t and I buy a ton. lol. I love books, I love buying books, and I hate feeling bad or guilty about something I love.

    Awesome haul! I loved The Martian, Queen Of Shadows and The Knife Of Never Letting Go! I have a copy of Me Before You on my shelves and I really need to get a copy of Simon and Everything, Everything soon… Although I probably shouldn’t because like you I already have too many books I still have to read haha.

        Haha I guess we do! 😉 The Martian is probably one of my favorite reads this year and I will probably reread it before watching the movie… And I can wait to get my hands on a copy of Simon and Everything, Everything. 😀

  3. Book bans are so difficult! Especially during the fall when there are so many amazing releases. Can’t wait to hear what you think of The Martian. I just read it this month and really enjoyed it.

    Also, yay for QoS! Loved that one =)
