August Book Haul

Hi everyone! So it’s the last day of the month of August and as usual I wanted to share with you all the books that I purchased during the month of August. All images used in this post are the editions that I bought and they all link to its Goodreads page.

 David Copperfield by Charles Dickens

If you don’t know by now, Charles Dickens is one of my favorite authors so anything by him I will buy and I was lucky enough to buy this for a really cheap price.

 The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

I actually just purchased this book last month, but in a different edition. This is my second copy which is actually so much cheaper since I got it at the thrift store for only a dollar compared to the fifteen dollars I paid at Barnes and Noble!

 The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

This is my third copy of The Hobbit, the last two being the same but in a different edition. This is one of the few books that I have multiple copies of.

 The Yard by Alex Grecian

 Lux Beginnings by Jennifer Armentrout

Other than Frigid which is a new adult book, this is my second book that I will be reading by Jennifer Armentrout aka J. Lynn.  I’ve been hearing some good things about the series so I hope this one will not disappoint.

 Behemoth (Leviathan #2) by Scott Westerfield

I haven’t even started the first book yet, but since there wasn’t much left in stock at Bookoutlet, I thought I’d purchased it ASAP since other book stores would cost more.

 The Glass Arrow by Kristen Simmons

I usually hate it when a book is dubbed as the next this is that or blah blah meets blah… Basically this book is labeled as The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road. While I did not read the latter the part where it’s somewhat similar to The Handmaid’s Tale got me since I personally love that book. Besides this book was only $1.49 for a hardcover edition at Bookoutlet. Pretty good deal if you ask me. Oh and it’s a standalone! HAHA

 Golden Boy by Abigail Tartelin

I usually don’t read many what I would call “realistic fiction” but the premise of this book totally caught my interest.

 Charm and Strange by Stephanie Kuehn

 Blackmail Boyfriend by Chris Cannon

I actually finished reading this book. While it’s predictable and the plot is nothing extraordinary, it’s definitely a cute read. And if you don’t know me by now, I love the romance trope that has pretend relationships that will eventually turn into something real.  It’s one of my guilty pleasures when it comes to romance novels even though I rarely read them.

 Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Premise sounded interesting so I’m like “why the hell not?”

 The Archived by Victoria Schwab

 The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

I started reading the first twenty pages of this book but I’m finding myself bored with it to be honest. Hopefully it does get better. But the plot does sound promising. I just hope it will be well executed.

 Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

Appointment with Death and The Mystery of the Blue Train by Agatha Christie

 Hollow City by Ransom Riggs

I haven’t even read the first one, but how can I refuse a hardcover edition for only two bucks and it still looks so brand new!

 The Serpent’s Shadow by Rick Riordan

 Man in the Dark by Paul Auster

 Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

This has been on my TBR for such a long time and now I finally get my hands on the first book!!

 Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

While romance isn’t my favorite thing to read, the premise of this book sounded really good.  I actually just started reading this, although I have a feeling that this book will make me an emotional wreck…*sets a box of Kleenex next to my bed as I read this*

That’s it for my book haul and as usual it’s always a mixture of everything since I don’t generally stick to reading one genre of books. I have a total of twenty-one books which I think is good enough especially since I have so many other books that I purchased from a few months back and still have not read.

  1. Me Before You is such a good read! After reading it I forced my mother to buy the Swedish translation of the book. A few days later she came up to me throwing the book at me saying “Frida, I hate you for making me read this!” and then she went out and bought several more of Jojo Moyes’ books.

  2. Waaa that’s an amazing haul. I have RPO on my to read list as well. Hoping we will both enjoy it. I adored Falling Kingdoms and Leviathan so I hope you’ll fall in love with both 😉

    1. Thank you! Awesome! I hope we will. It seems so promising, but we’ll see, 😉

      Oh I’m so glad. I am really excited to read both books! 🙂


    1. Thank you! I’ve been seeing the series here on my feed so I’m just like “might as well jump on that hype..” The premise does sound interesting though…Besides it’s been awhile since I read a paranormal series. 🙂

    1. Thank you! Awesome! I was intrigued by the plot of Charm and Strange and plus it looks like such a short read!
      Oh I’m glad you enjoyed The Glass Arrow. It’s one of the books that I’m actually quite excited to read about. 🙂

    1. That’s awesome! I hope you will get a chance to read them as well! Oh my goodness it may take me a while to read all of them since I have so many on my bookshelf that are still unread. xD

      But yes be on the lookout for any book reviews just in case it may be one of these books. 🙂

    1. Isn’t it? Thank you. When I saw it, I just knew I had to have it even though I already have it in another edition. You can never have too many copies of one book. 😉

  3. I’m interested to see what you think of a few of them. I regretted Ready Player One. The first Ransom Riggs book was good – not great – but good. Me Before You is one of the few non supernatural romance novels I’m interested in reading. I don’t think I want to experience the feels though. Ya know?

    1. Oh I’m sorry to hear that Ready Player One wasn’t as good for you. I’ve read some mixed reviews for Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Home, but I’m excited to read it regardless. Hopefully it will be “good”.

      Oh my gosh yes the feels…Just from reading the blurb of the book, I already know it will evoke emotions in me.
