September book haul – I’m out of control!

Ok, ok. In my defence there is 1 ARC, and 2 that were gifts. I had also preordered 3 and they were just released this month…… isn’t convincing you that I don’t have a problem is it? Well you love books too so I know you’re not judging me! Even if you were judging me I don’t care – I JUST LOVE BOOKS!!

As most of the books I hauled this month came in the mail, I actually saved the packaging for a photo op. I made only a couple purchases but literally every book shipped separately. So the aftermath of my two orders (Through Chapters Indigo and through Book Depository) and my ARC delivery looked a little something like this….

……… I know, right? It looks totally excessive. But I promise that I scored HUGE deals! Yes I spent a bunch of money but I saved about 175$ off the retail prices. I literally didn’t pay full price for a single one! So I say that it’s my bargain shopping that paid off 🙂 GO ME! Since there are going to be so many, I will not be putting the synopsis for each one.

TOWER OF DAWN was a book that I was so excited for! It’s new Queen Maas!! But as soon as I started it I immediately had problems connecting with it. I’m still attempting to work my way through it.

GODSGRAVE was a surprise! I preordered it as soon as I finished Nevernight and didn’t pay attention to the order. I just knew it needed it RIGHT NOW! When it came in it was signed!!!! I squealed and almost cried! I’ve already read it this month and you can find my review here!

ARTEMIS is another highly anticipated one! The lovely people at Penguin Random House were nice enough to send me a copy for review and the cover is more stunning in person! I bet the finished copy will be even better 🙂

FINAL GIRLS!!! It’s finally happening! I’ve been hearing such amazing things about this book for months but left it so that I could have a scary read for October!!

NYXIA was one that I wasn’t going to purchase. But the week that the book was released there were SO MANY reviews that just raved about it! All of your reviews convinced me that I needed to read it. Then it was on sale so it was even better!

IT is a book that I told myself I would never read. EVER. But since I can’t actually see the clown while i’m reading then I should be fine. I’ve been told by many people that this is one of their favourite King books and it was on sale for about 12$ so, ya, it happened. I’ve been wanting to read more King and I guess this is where I start.

THE UNSEEN WORLD I caught this book from one of my favourite You Tubers and she just raves about it ever chance she gets. It’s a story where a young girl needs to unravel the life of her father after he passes and I just love stories like that. When you think you know someone and then you start digging and realize how wrong you were! Can’t wait!

Last but not least we have the first three books in the Zodiac series by Romina Russell. I finished ZODIAC at the beginning of the month (find the review Here) and was so obsessed with it I had to pick up the next two books immediately! I’m not sure when I’ll get to WANDERING STAR and BLACK MOON but I can’t wait to devour them! This series is just AMAZING!!!!! So complex and unique!!


sept 17 haul

So there’s the out of hand book haul for September. If I’m a good girl (which I realllllllly should be!), there won’t be a haul in October…… my wallet is ready to send me to rehab! What’s your favourite purchase for September?

Until next time, happy reading!

    Heck yes, bookworms out of control! There should never be any judgement for buying loads and loads of books. At least, there better not be, or I’m in a lot of trouble! I’m looking forward to seeing what you think of these!

    I WANT THEM ALL!! Okay, all except “It”…because I have an abnormal fear of clowns ha-ha! I’m so jealous of your book haul! I’m trying to not buy any books until November, since I already have so many I haven’t read on my bookshelves…but I WANT TO BUY MORE SO BAD! Bibliophile problems…any who, awesome post! I’m definitely adding some of these to my TBR list 🙂

    1. Bibliophile problems is right! This will be my last big haul until the new year. Christmas is coming so I need to conserve! My fear of clowns is real – I’m hoping that because I can’t actually SEE the clown it will be ok. And I also like scaring the crap out of myself for no good reason lol

    Ohhh fantastic haul – and no regrets, buying books is always better than… not buying books haha. It’s good to treat ourselves with books 🙂 I hope you’ll enjoy these! 🙂

  4. Great haul! Artemis is 👌 I hope you enjoy it. Went to see the It movie last night 🤤. Need to read the novel now.

    1. I’ve been seeing some really conflicting reviews of Artemis so far. Lots of complaints of a very unlikeable main character. I typically like the unlikeable type so I have high hopes!


      1. I can see what people mean about Jazz being unlikable but I think that is done on purpose for quite a few reasons. I thought she was the perfect calibre of character to pull the story off but she is an acquired taste 😅

          1. it has to be! my expectations are high! but, to be honest, i don’t think that anything can beat “the martian” for me… 😀

          2. Agreed! I almost didn’t read the Martian. It didn’t sound like something I would be into. Glad I gave it a chance. It was perfection!

    OMGAHHHH! We are TWINSIES this month Shanah! I knew September would be a pretty EPIC haul so I readied myself by having a pretty calm August lol. I don’t think I have a fave purchase only because I can’t stop lusting after the covers for each one haha! but I am really happy to have a finished copy of Adam Silvera’s They Both Die at the End. Next month I’m attending NYC Comic Con & so I won’t even say that I’ll be conservative smh it never pans out that way lol. I hope you enjoy all your new reads 🙂
