June Haul

Copy of Copy of Top Ten Tuesday

Hello all! I’m here to share with you the books that I bought and was sent this month! I did spend a bit more since I did go on vacation and had a blast.

Book of the Month

These are my June picks from the ever wonderful @bookofthemonth! I couldn't help but get three. I can always find more books, even though my #tbrpile is growing at an extreme rate. ๐Ÿ“š I got We Hunt the Flame because it's been so hyped for me. Then, The Golden Hour because it mentioned the Windsors and, well, royalty got me hooked. Finally, Recursion because I've never read Blake Crouch before and this was my chance! ๐Ÿ“š What book(s) did you get?? ๐Ÿ“š #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #bookofthemonth #booksubscriptionbox #amreading #tbr ๐Ÿ“š [Image description: We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal, The Golden Hour by Beatriz Williams, and Recursion by Blake Crouch.

This time, I got three books! I actually read two over my vacation, We Hunt the Flame and Recursion. Both of the reviews are on my Goodreads! I’m probably going to read The Golden Hour a bit later since it feels like a good fall read for me.

I got my Owlcrate box yesterday! And, y'all, it was a winner. Swipe for spoilers! ๐Ÿ“š I'm super excited about the coffee. I can't try it yet since we only have a Keurig but I'm going to ASAP. The book ends are also gorgeous. I'm totally using them as props in my pictures! And coasters?? Love em. Always need more. Lastly, the book. I guessed right and I'm very excited to read it. Also, that cover is amazing. ๐Ÿ“š What's your favorite part of the box? ๐Ÿ“š #owlcrate #booksubscriptionbox #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #yafantasy #tbr ๐Ÿ“š [Image description: Pictures of June's Owlcrate box!

Fourth is of a bag with a Strange the Dreamer quote on it. Fifth is of a set of coasters with bookish quotes on them. Sixth is of the enamel pin. Seventh is of the book, Sorcery of Thorns.]

This month, I decided to get Owlcrate! I figured out the book (and it was one that I had my eyes on). Plus the goodies that they talked about were too good to pass up! Not only can’t I wait to read the book, but it had stuff in it (gender neutral stuff!!) that I’m actually going to be using.

See this stack? These are the books that I got at @powellsbooks! Obviously, I got quite a few. ๐Ÿคฃ In other news, I have no self control. Only one isn't pictured because I got it for my mom! ๐Ÿ“š I got a few books that I've already read, but most were ones that I haven't! My stacks of unread books have definitely grown. ๐Ÿ“š #bookpile #bookstack #reader #amreading #tbrpile #bookstagrammer #bookstagram ๐Ÿ“š [Image description: Stack of books that include The Shining by Stephen King, Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley, Solitaire by Alice Oseman, Our Own Private Universe by Robin Talley, Little & Lion by Brandy Colbert, Scythe by Neil Shusterman, and The Romanovs by Simon Sebag Montefiore.]

This is my haul from Powell’s specifically. Funny enough, I had already readย Scythe (as y’all know) andย The Shining. While I was in Portland, I also readย Lies We Tell Ourselves andย Solitaire. I’m currently readingย The Romanovs. So, I think I’m doing very good at this!

Not pictured are books I bought in Barnes and Noble while we waited on her mom. I gotย Nocturna, With the Fire on High, andย  Love From A to Z.

#partner While I was away in Portland, I got some amazing #bookmail that I want to show off! (While also using my new bookends from @owlcrate!) ๐Ÿ“š First up were some raffle wins from @bookishhq! So far, they're such fun! I'm grateful to have them and I will always thank the wonderful people who worked hard to organize this. So, thanks for the books! ๐Ÿ“š Next was surprise bookmail from @vikingbooks! I didn't expect it, but it looks really good. It's an already published book, so I'm planning on reading it next month. Thank you for sending it to me! ๐Ÿ“š #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #bookishfirst #bookishhq #arcs #thisishowyoulosethetimewar #dragonslayer #theartofbreakingthings #reader #amreading #currentlyreading ๐Ÿ“š [Image description: First picture is of all the books together with bookends holding them up.

Fourth and final picture is of The Art of Breaking Things by Laura Sibson.]

Then, I got home from Portland to some amazing mail from publishers! I’m currently readingย Dragonslayer and This is How You Lose the Time War since they come out in early July and I want to make sure they’re read since they’re ARCs. But, I really am excited to dig intoย The Art of Breaking Things since it gives me a Sadie vibe.

But, those were the books that I got this month! I’m sure that July will be a light month since I have expenses that I’m expecting, but who knows!

Talk to me!
What books did you get this month?
Have you read any of these? What did you think?
