A few days ago I uploaded a huge collective book haul to my channel – and while it’s just so much easier to fawn over all the books in actual speech form over there, I also figured...hey, why not spotlight some of the ones I’m really looking forward to reading on my blog? There’s so many books listed in that video (it’s linked at the end if you’d like to see them all!), but some really stand out to me as top priorities for the upcoming months and I basically just want another reason to chat about them all the more.
This list is…a varied one. Honestly I should probably stop giving that warning before any form of book list I provide, because it’s starting to get repetitive 😆 BUT if you want to see everything from the myth retellings and freak cosmic events I’m eager to pluck from my shelves – well, here they are spotlighted

So I thought to myself the other day “Ashleigh, it’s been freakin’ AGES since you did a book haul on your blog. Sort yourself out.” They’re just easier to do on my booktube channel, and so somehow I’ve neglected to add them here too.
But NOT TODAY MY FRIENDS. Because here I’m bringing you my collective book haul. Like I did on my last haul, I’ll link my video at the start of the list, since that’s where I explain where I got the books from and any thoughts I have on them, but if you can’t watch the video (or simply don’t want to
*cries* (just kidding)), all the books will be listed below as their own haul!
Here’s my spring book haul!

Sooooo it was my birthday on Friday 🙂
And while I don’t make that huge a fuss about my own birthday, it does mean I was treated to some new books, and that alone is exciting for me!
Like with my December Book Haul, my main version of this haul is actually on my booktube channel, since it’s a lot easier to explain which were gifts/which I got before my birthday, along with why I’m interested in them. So the video will be down below, but underneath the books and synopsis’ will be listed for anyone who doesn’t have enough time (or simply don’t want) to watch the video.
So let’s see what books I got in February!

Ooooohhhhh how December was a great month, haul-wise.
I’ve been on a book buying ban for THREE MONTHS. I needed to save my money for a whole bunch of different things, and so my book buying was put on hold for a whole three months. And oh how Christmas made up for that 😆
Nearly all of these books were gifts I got for Christmas, since everyone around me knows how much I love books. I’m incredibly grateful for them all and always will be ❤
This post is going to be set out a bit differently. My main version of this is actually on my booktube channel, so below you’ll find a video for this haul. HOWEVER, I’ve also listed the books mentioned below the video, with the synopsis and relevant links, so if you don’t have time (or simply don’t want) to watch the video, you can have a quick glance through instead!
The video has me full of excitement and rambling about why/how I got each book though, so I’d recommend watching it *wink*
Let’s see which books December brought me!

I was considering not doing this haul. I mean, two of the books I was sent for review and have probably never been heard of. Four of them are classics. And only one is popular YA. So I didn’t think anyone would be interested.
But then I told myself “Stop being ridiculous. I’m excited about having these books, so I’ll share it. I’m not here just to talk about the ‘popular’ books – I’m here for all books.”
So here I am. With probably the most random assortment of books I’ve ever gotten.
Also I apologise in advance for the dodgy lighting in these photos. I had to improvise with …with…unnatural yellow lighting *GASPS* THE HORROR!
Here are the books I got in the month of August!

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!

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!

At the start of the month I said to myself “I’m on a book buying ban for April because I’ve gotten so many books since December.”
As time went on, I realized one of my most anticipated releases came out at the end of the month. So this went from no books to “I’ll make an exception for THAT ONE BOOK.”
And then April actually started and I ended up getting 6 books. And a half. Kind of (you’ll see what I mean).
So here’s my failed book buying ban – otherwise known as a haul!

Oh how this post shouldn’t exist.
Not when I got so many books last month.
I even told myself not to buy more at the end of the February Book Haul – and I quote:
“I don’t think there’ll be any need for me to buy books for a while now”
Shows how much I listen to myself.
Anyway, I got more books. And here they are.
Let’s jump right in!

I got a lot of books this month. A LOT.
But it was my birthday, so I guess it’s excusable?
But I’m not even sorry. My reading material is sorted for a few months now so I’m happy. Plus I’ve been really wanting most of these books for months now, so…yeah.
This post will be long enough on it’s own, so I won’t ramble any longer.
This will be in three sections: books I got before my birthday, ON my birthday, and after.
Let’s jump right in!
