January Book Haul &Wrap-Up

I know it’s a bit late, but I just had the time to write this post! Exams got in the way lol.

BOOK WRAP UP

January has been a great reading month for me, because I didn’t have classes until the 22th, so I was able to sneak in a lot of books during my Christmas break. I will only be including the books I’ve read for this month, not counting the ones I’ve read last December 2017.

July Book Haul & Wrap-Up

It’s this time of the month again! Presenting to you – my July Book Haul and Wrap Up! I won’t be listing down my August TBR since my TBR pile has become unmanageable, and I’ll probably pick up books that I feel like reading. In the past week, I’ve been in a huge historical fiction vibe, ever since I finished The Bronze Horseman. So you guys might notice the noticeable number of historical fiction novels in my July Haul.

June Wrap-Up and Book Haul & July TBR

June has been a successful reading month for me, compared to May where I only read 2 books the entire month. Not only was I able to get out of my book hangover through my discovery of new and very interesting books, but June has also been the month where I bought A LOT OF BOOKS! So I’ll be featuring both my June Wrap-Up and Book Haul, together with my July TBR.


JUNE WRAP-UP

I read a total of 6 books, comprised of 4 novels, 1 reread book, and 1 novella. I’m going to post the book reviews of those I haven’t written yet sometime soon.

 



JUNE BOOK HAUL

My June Book Haul is probably my biggest book haul so far in 2017. I got a total of 9 books, and I’m actually still waiting until now for my Book Depository orders and this other book I’ve just ordered yesterday from a local seller. I’ll just include those in the next month. My wallet is literally crying right now because of all the hoarding I’ve done this month. I bought most of these books from secondhand bookstores and local sellers, but the others are brand new and I got from bookstores – most of them were on SALE! I would never pass on the opportunity when books are on sale.

I have both City of Lost souls and City of Heavenly Fire on my list even though I’ve read them already. They’re the two books that I’ve been looking for years since I couldn’t find any of the old covers in bookstores.
