Book Haul [31] - February 2018

Another month, another book haul!  I feel like I've already bought quite a few books this year, and I placed one big pre-order on Amazon the other day so I'll have more books to haul in coming months. I've also read some new authors this year, and immediately itched to pick up more of their books (which means more book shopping, of course!)  BUT, I've decided to cancel my Owlcrate subscription for now, as I've only read one of the books so far, and the others aren't ones that I'm dying to get to.  My ultimate goal is to have less unread books at the end of the year than I had at the beginning of the year, so I need to focus on keeping the number of unread books under control.

We're not here to talk about not buying books.  We're here to talk about the books that I did buy!

E-books



1. Dear Martin by Nic Stone
2. I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
Picked up a couple more cheap ebooks (I've bought more ebooks in the last two months than I bought all 2017!  BUT I've already one of these two books, so that counts for something, right?)

Subscription Box



3. The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
4. The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert
I've decided I'm done with Owlcrate.  Although there have been some super cool goodies in the boxes (like my Expecto Patronum toque and my Forbidden Forest mug), I've been disappointed with most of the books.  I've subscribed for six months now, and I've only read one of the six books.  Although it was a five star read, I'm on interested in reading one of the other five unread books.  I DNFed one of them when I was reading it as an egalley (although I think I will give it a second shot), and the other three are books that I feel fairly indifferent about.  I think I'm going to focus on buying books that I know I will love, and then I can support artists on Society6 or Etsy whenever I'm craving bookish goodies.

Purchased



5. The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn
I've had my eye on this one for a while and after I dove back into Karin Slaughter's work, I snagged a cheap copy of this book at Costco.


6. Gone Rogue by Marissa Meyer
Of course I pre-ordered this, and of course I've already read it.  And loved it.


7. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne
After I finished The Heart's Invisible Furies, I RAN to the bookstore to pick up this one, his most well-known book.  It's going to tear my heart out, à la Book Thief, I just know it.


8. The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin
Book club pick for March and I'm SO EXCITED.  The book is so pretty in person!
