Since it’s December, I thought I’d finish off at least just one more series before the end of the year and get that little last boost towards my 2016 resolution to finish some of the series I’d started.

And once again, that feeling seems to have hit where I’m going off SO many series/books this year. If you saw my reviews for the previous two books, you’ll know they have quite generous ratings. This one…well…

August Book Haul – Probably the most random assortment of books I’ve gotten in a long time

title

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!

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!
