As I mentioned in my Wrap Up, July dragged for me. I felt like it went on forever. So when I came to write up this review and saw I had somehow accumulated this many books in July…well, I was quite surprised, because it felt like a lifetime ago.
I’m pretty sure I say that in a lot of hauls though. It just be the common cause of my buying.
I’ll put it simply. I got nine books in July. Though to be fair, I didn’t buy them all, so…I didn’t spend that much money.
AND in July I read 8 books, so I’ve only added to my TBR by one book. That’s pretty good going, if I do say so myself.
Can you guess any of the books from the picture?
Well, you don’t have to, because I’m about to show them all off screaming LOOK AT ALL THESE PRETTIES.
Here are the books I got in the month of July!
*Technically* I got this book in June…but it was the second-to-last day of June and I didn’t have a June book haul and it wouldn’t be far to leave it out, right? RIGHT? So here it is.
This book I’ve been waiting for about a year to come out in paperback…so much so that I actually forgot about it, and got mightily excited when I saw it in the bookstore at last. I can finally continue this series! (Though I MAY need to find a summary of the first book online first to remind myself what happened…)
Now THIS one I was debating about for so long.
I adored Me Before You – it’s even a favourite of mine – but I think it’d be good as a standalone. So I don’t quite want to read this book…but I also do because I love Lou Clarke. Well, I saw that it was on half price in my local bookstore, and was still debating. So I tried a poll of twitter asking if I should buy it or not, with the answers “Yes” / “No” / “Only if it’s still half price”. And to put it simply, the last answer won, it was still half price, and I ended up getting the book for £4.00.
I got this book for free. Kind of. I got it with a £10 voucher that I had earnt through buying lots of books at Waterstones. But yay, free book!
I’ve already read this one, so see my review here.
Now this and the next book were a complete surprise to me, and they thrilled me to pieces. I’d seen people getting these two ARCs on Twitter, and had been eyeing them up all along. So imagine my surprise when they just turned up on my doorstep from the publishers! I couldn’t have been happier.
Frostblood is out in January 2017…such a long time away! I’m trying to hold off reading it until closer to the date, so that my review won’t be scheduled for half a year 😆
I can’t get over how stunning this ARC is. IT’S SO SHINY. And the final cover is just a gorgeous – seriously, go and have a look.
Again, this isn’t out until January 2017, so I’m trying to hold off reading it…I’M SO TEMPTED THOUGH.
Another absolutely stunning ARC, but sent by a different person. This was a very different read for me, but enjoyable all the same. I just had mixed feelings.
You can see my review here.
This is the book I’m currently reading (though it’s taking me a mightily long time with how busy I am lately) and I am LOVING it so far. It’s the last book in Holly Bourne’s Spinster Club trilogy, and I had to get it as soon as physically possible. Which actually happened sooner than expected, since Waterstones started selling them early…and as soon as I found that out, I was down at the bookstore. Literally the next day.
Well, it turned out that What’s A Girl Gotta Do was on the “buy one get one half price” offer, so I might as well get a book that I’d been eyeing up for a while, hadn’t I?
This one has mixed reviews so I’m really intrigued to see what I think!
The most hyped book of the year award goes to…CURSED CHILD! And I was part of that hype. And still am. BECAUSE I LOVED IT.
The bookstore even had animals in. I held a snake. What a great day it was.
My review for this one went up on Friday, so if you haven’t seen it already, click here.
So there we have it! My July Book Haul!
How many books did you get in July?
Have you read any of the books I listed? What did you think?
Are there any on here that you hope to get soon?
Let me know in the comments!
Until next time…
