Book Haul

Hey Guys!

It’s time for a book haul! Whoop whoop! I haven’t don’t one of these since January, but thankfully this isn’t too huge. I have actually put myself on a book buying limit. I know I won’t stick to a ban so I have limited myself to a maximum of 5 books a month, and so far, I am not sticking to it lol. But, here are all the books that I have brought since my last book haul (side note, I only started my limit in February, so I may have brought several books in January, after I posted my haul, plus, I kind of forgot about my limit in Feb, whoops)

The Truth And Lies Of Ella Black by Emily Barr – Waterstones (BOGOHP)(Giftcard)

We Come Apart by Sarah Crossan and Brian Conaghan – Waterstones (BOGOHP)(Giftcard)


Batman Nightwalker by Marie Lu – Waterstones (BOGOHP)(Giftcard)

Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Beck Albertalli – Waterstones (BOGOHP)(Giftcard)

I was given a National Book token gift card for Christmas and I still had one left from my birthday in the summer so I picked up some books. This was actually two different trips to two different branches but I managed to get some books that I am super excited about (actually already read a couple of them).

How To Stop Time by Matt Haig – WHSmith (£4.49)

Room by Emma Donoghue – WHSmith (£2)

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman – WHSmith (£4.49)


Shadowblack by Sebastien De Castell – WHSmith (£9.09)

The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman – WHSmith (£1.74)

Seven Ways We Lie by Riley Redgate – WHSmith (£2.74)

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert – WHSmith (£5.59)

Mortal Instruments Graphic Novel by Cassandra Clare – WHSmith (£6.99)

The Course Of True Love (And First Dates) by Cassandra Clare – WHSmith (£4.19)

Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick – WHSmith (£1.99)

The Incredible Adventures Of Cinnamon Girl by Melissa Keil – WHSmith (£1.74)

Orbiting Jupiter by Gary D Schmidt – WHSmith (£4.79)

I feel the need to clarify that I did not buy all of these in one go. The first 3 where brought in store on 3 separate occasions and then the rest where in two separate online orders weeks apart. Plus the second order (consisting of the last 6 books) was brought with a discount code, so I actually ended up saving £5, so I basically got Orbiting Jupiter free J

Everless by Sara Holland – Amazon (£6)

This Savage Song by V E Schwab – Amazon (£5.59)

The Elite by Kiera Cass – Amazon (£6.99)

Me And Earl And The Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews – Amazon (£2.35)

Life On The Refrigerator Door by Alice Kuipers – Amazon (£2.40)

Silver And Bone by Claudia Cain – Amazon (EBook) (£0.99)


A Wrinkle In Time by Madeline L’Engle – Charity Shop (£1.49)

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – Charity Shop (£1.49)

Lord Of Misrule by Rachel Cain – Charity Shop (£1.59 & BOGOF)

Carpe Corpus by Rachel Cain – Charity Shop (£1.59 & BOGOF)

The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold – Charity Shop (£1.59 & BOGOF)

A Tale Of Two Cities by Charles Dickens – Charity Shop (£1.59 & BOGOF)


The Extinction Trials by S M Wilson – ASDA (2 for £7)

Piecing Me Together by Renée Watson – ASDA (2 for £7)

I actually paid of these with a voucher that I got from cashing in my jar of coppers (whenever I get 1p or 2p coins I throw them in a jar. When that jar is full, I cash it in and buy books with it) so I only actually paid about 50p for these two books J

Electric Dreams by Philip K Dick – Stolen of my dad

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – Stolen of my dad

Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – Stolen of my dad

The Martian by Andy Weir – Stolen of my dad

I did have his permission to take these lol. He has read all four of them and was going to put them into storage as that’s what he does with books that he has read so I asked if he minded if I took them since I want to read them (well, I’ve read the Martian but don’t own a copy) and he said yes. Obviously if at some point in the future he wants them back for whatever reason, I won’t object as they are his, but for now, they are essentially mine.

And there we have it. it’s a good thing I did a major unhaul in January. I really need to be stricter with myself when it comes to buying books. I really need to limit myself. Maybe I should try a read 5 buy 1 system or something. Who knows. Do you have any tips for sticking to a book buying ban? What books have you brought recently? I hope that you have enjoyed todays post and my lack of self-control and I will see you all again very soon.
