July Haul

Copy of Copy of Top Ten Tuesday

This month, I was pretty good! Honestly, I feel like I was. And, there so are books that I want to get myself but don’t currently have the funds. Thanks, preorders and textbooks.

Book of the Month

As y’all know by now, I’m an affiliate for their YA box. If you’re interested, click my affiliate link and sign up! August books will be here very, very soon!

This was what I chose for my affiliate box! And these are all my choices together:

Unplugged Book Box

So, the other day, I decided to do a shop order from @unpluggedbookbox! I was planning on doing separate posts but I changed my mind. 🤷‍♂️ 📚 I got Like a Love Story by Abdi Nazemian! I've heard some good things, so I'm hoping to get to it soon. Then, I got their wine glass that reads "When in doubt… go to the library." It pairs wonderfully with the coaster I got from @owlcrate! Finally, I got a candle that smells amazing and is based off The Priory of the Orange Tree by @say_shannon. 📚 #unpluggedbookbox #booksubscriptionbox #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #ilovebooks📚 #ilovereading #likealovestory #abdinazemian #whenindoubtgotothelibrary #owlcrate #theprioryoftheorangetree 📚 [Image description: First picture is of Like a Love Story by Abdi Nazemian held up with no extra props.

I ordered a few things from their store, so you can click through that to see what I picked! But, I got a book, candle, and stemless wine glass. All are great choices, although I haven’t read the book yet!

Book Depository

My wine glass may or may not have something in it. 🙄 📚 But, really, adulting is hard. I didn't sign up for this! What makes it better is a @bookdepository package! (And wine. Pinot grigio today.) I got a couple more Penguin Monarch books, the Slytherin version of Prisoner of Azkaban, and I Was Born for This by Alice Oseman! 📚 What was your last Book Depository purchase? 📚 #boozybibliophiles #bookstack #bookhaul #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #historicalnonfiction #penguinmonarchs #edwardi #henryv #transbookstagram #transbooks #iwasbornforthis #aliceoseman #tbrpile #harrypotterandtheprisonerofazkaban #slytherin #slytherinpride 📚 [Image description: First picture is a book stack that has a wine glass that reads Adulting Is Hard on top. The books are Edward I, Henry V, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and I Was Born for This. Background is purposefully blurry. Second picture is of me pouring wine in my cup.]

I also placed a Book Depository order! Have my hands on so many good books. I’m very excited to read them. Also, my Slytherin copy of Prisoner of Azkaban makes me so happy.

I gotta say, I love bookstagram. After saying I really wanted this book, @sammaybereading found a copy, traded for it, and sent it to me. You're amazing, Sam! 📚 I started this last night and omg is it good. The horror aspects are fascinating. I love the lore. The addition of Welsh is giving me life. (Fun fact about me is that I've taught myself a little bit of Welsh.) If the book keeps this pace, I'm pretty sure it'll be a favorite!! 📚 What's a fun fact about you? 📚 #arcs #arc #thebonehouses #emilylloydjones #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #amreading #currentlyreading #ilovebooks📚 #ilovereading 📚 [Image description: The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones held up.

Bookstagram is great and so is Sam! She found someone who was looking to give up this copy, traded for it, and sent it to me. And, since you’ve read my review by now, you’ll know that I really liked it!

Believe it or not, I won a giveaway from TorTeen! I never win giveaways, so that was really exciting. I also did read the book quite quickly and enjoyed it. A new author for me to keep an eye on!

Finally, I got this! I did not expect to have the ARC sent to me, even though I requested it from them, so I’m just entirely over the moon about it. One of the books I’m highly anticipating for 2020.

Talk to me!
How did you treat your shelf this month?
