My January Book Haul

Hi, all! I’ve never done a book haul before but this month I bought a lot of books, so I really wanted to try out this type of post.

So, this month I have a haul of 21 books… Now, I’d like to make the note that I buy a majority of my novels used. I love reading and I love pretty, new books, but I’m a college student working part time with my own home and lots of bills so I can’t spend $15-$20 on every novel I get. About half of the books I got this month came from a store close to me that has $1 sales every weekend. I had some credit with the store this month since I often donate old books that I’m either not going to read or didn’t enjoy, so I didn’t spend any money there. I also got two from B&N, 1 ARC from an author, and 8 used books from Amazon.

My total cost on books this month was: $26.64. Honestly, I think that’s amazing for 21 books. So, here’s what I got:

ARC

The Blood Prince – Josie Jaffrey (ARC – Not pictured below)

New

They Both Die at the End – Adam Silvera

Broken Things – Lauren Oliver

Used

Keeping You a Secret – Julie Anne Peters

Faking Normal – Courtney C. Stevens

Emma – Jane Austen

The Battle of the Labyrinth – Rick Riordan

Divergent – Veronica Roth

Insurgent – Veronica Roth

Allegiant – Veronica Roth

The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins

Catching Fire – Suzanne Collins

Mockingjay – Suzanne Collins

Never Have I Ever – Sara Sheppard

Pretty Little Liars – Sara Sheppard

Flawless – Sara Sheppard

Perfect – Sara Sheppard

Unbelievable – Sara Sheppard

Wicked – Sara Sheppard

Heartless – Sara Sheppard

Wanted – Sara Sheppard

A lot of these I have already read, like the Divergent & Hunger Games series. However, I love rereads and I like owning the books that I’ve really enjoyed. Plus, they were free. So… what else do you expect of me!? I ordered the first 8 books in the Pretty Little Liars series from Amazon and unfortunately, instead of getting the 6th book, Killer, the retailer sent me Never Have I Ever, which is from an entirely different series by Sara Sheppard. I’ll be reordering the book (from a different seller, of course), but for now, that’s what I got so I wanted to make sure it was included.

So, that’s what I got this month.

Did you buy any books in January? Talk to me. (:

  1. Yes, Brittany, books are really expensive. For me, new ones on Amazon are too much. I got a Kindle for my birthday in November and I’ve been buying Kindle versions of many books on Kindle Unlimited. Many of them are free, and some are about $2. The BookBub E-Book Bargains newsletter is one place I’ve been shopping. Have you checked that out? Of course, if you’re a hardcore hard copy person (like I was), never mind!

    1. No, I haven’t checked into that before, but it sounds like I definitely need to! I prefer hard copies but I love ebooks, too! The only thing I can’t get on board with is Audio. I’ll definitely check it out. Thanks for the recommendation!

  2. No new buys for me this month as I’m working through my purchases from December. I also rarely buy books. I rent mine from the library much more frequently. It saves me money, and I don’t keep books around once I’m done with them. Kind of odd I guess.

  3. I bought a lot more books than usual this month, though a good majority were textbooks so those don’t count. For fun, I bought two copies of A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer (ebook and physical, oops), The Raven Cycle ebooks, and the History is All You Left me by Adam Silvera ebook.
