May Wrap Up – Complete With Some Major Fangirl Moments

May wrap up

I know this is coming nearly a week into June. I was going to write it the weekend before and have it up early, but I knew I’d finish one last book in May after this would’ve been uploaded, so I delayed the wrap up a week to include it.

Anyway, the month of May seemed to drag out considerably for me. The books I read at the start of the month feel like a lifetime ago. But I’ve had a decent reading month, and a fair few fangirl moments towards the end of the month.

As always, this is going to be a long post, so get comfy and enjoy!

May Book Haul – How Do You Manage To Accumulate Books Without Even Realizing?

may book haul

Well apparently it’s June.

May did actually drag for me. When I look back at these books, they all feel like I got them a lifetime ago. Well, apart from the last three, which I got a couple of days ago.

About that: The last three books I technically got on June 1st, BUT…I’m hoping not to buy any books in June so they’re being put into this book haul rather than be missed out.

And the title?

That’s because with this month dragging out so much for me, I managed to accumulate nine books in May without even realizing it. Probably because of a combination of me not buying all of them/ I’ve already read some of them/ and I got them over such a wide span…or so I thought.

So that’s enough rambling. Here’s the books!

The Wonderful People I Will Keep Throwing Money At For Their Books… My Auto-Buy Authors!

auto buy authors

I think every bookworm has their auto-buy authors.

The authors where no matter what they publish, you WILL be buying it. The authors where you’re constantly waiting for any news of upcoming books. The authors where they could write out their shopping list, and you’d find it enthralling.

Granted, auto-buy authors is kind of a new concept to me. I knew about them, but didn’t think I had any of my own. Purely because I have this thing where it takes me forever to continue series, so most of the time I never have the entire collection of books.

But then I realized…there are a few.

Even though there’s only 5 here, I’ll split this into two sections:

– I own all their books so far & eagerly waiting for the next

Pretty self explanatory. Most of the time, these are ongoing series, or an upcoming release is not yet out.

– Permanent *grabby hands* at the books I intend on buying

I don’t yet own all the books these authors have published, but I fully intend on buying them to get the whole collection.

So who are my auto-buy authors? Let’s find out!

My Favourite Book Quotes

quotes

I don’t like just writing up blog award posts and having that as the only post of the day, in case people don’t like reading them, so I decided to add this post today too: My Favourite Book Quotes!

The idea is basically for me to write down some of my favourite book quotes for you guys to see. People’s favourite quotes do tend to show more about their personality, so maybe that will show through this post πŸ™‚

Hopefully this post is interesting to read!

So in no particular order…

So let’s get to it!

My Life in Books tag!

I was tagged byΒ Β Belle InfiniΒ Β and BOOKS AND OTHER MIRACLESΒ to do this tag, so thank you! πŸ˜€

1. Find a book for each of your initials.

Well, my initials are AJW, so here we go…

ACOTARjane eyreWinter

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas/ Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte/ Winter by Marissa Meyer. I don’t actually own Winter yet, but all the other options had boring covers and I think I’ll be getting it at Christmas so close enough, right? Also Jane Eyre turned out to be the only book I own beginning with J. I had to scavenge for it.

2. Count your age along your bookshelf. What book is it?

Series I have yet to finish

Series I have yet to finish

I have this habit of buying books that are completely unrelated to each other, instead of buying the next book in a series I’ve started to continue on. So I have A LOT of series I haven’t yet finished.

This will be split into two different section: Series where the books have all been released and I’ve just not gotten round to continuing yet, and Series that I am up to date with, but need to wait for the next books to be released to finish.

There will be Goodreads links for the 1st books in the series, if you want to check them out.

So…let’s do this!
