My August Book Haul

August Book Haul

It’s been a while since I did one of these, but I started a new job in July which meant a pay rise and I went a little bit book happy when I got my first new pay-cheque at the end of July!

I’m really trying to get my NetGalley TBR under control so I’m reasonable impressed with myself that I only requested the four books this month!


I was lucky enough to receive some books from the lovely team at ed Public Relations and Hot Key Books

Subscription Boxes

I subscribe to the Wildest Dreams Book Box and this month’s theme was Comic Legends, along with the below book I also received 4 amazing mini candles from TakenMoons, some tea and a lovely postcard and bookmark.

I went a little book buying crazy this month! I blame the Barnes and Nobel Teen Blog for introducing me to a number of really interesting sounding books I’d not heard of before!

I took part in a Summer Secret Santa organised by the lovely Molly – My box was a little late so only arrived this month.

That’s my book haul for the month! If you had a wee book buying spree let me know what you bought in the comments!

    I read Tilly and the Bookwanderers in August and loved it, and I’m excited to give YOLO a try soon! I really enjoyed Floored and Theatrical early in the summer, and I loved Goodbye, Perfect. Simon Vs is one of my favourite YAs ever. Royals is on my TBR still, and I’m planning to give Catwoman a go too. I think I bought 10 books in August; some of which were planned and others that were impulsive buys used to cheer me up/celebrate my exam results 😂

      My plan is to buy a copy of Tilly and the Bookwanderers to give to my goddaughter but I want to give it a read first. Floored grew on me, it took me a little while to get into but I’m looking forward to Theatrical, I loved Unconventional!

    You have bought some AMAZING books, Sarah! You honestly have such great reading ahead of you. Some of my faves are Goodbye, Perfect, Floored, The Loneliest Girl in the Universe and Theatrical. Some fab UKYA! I have a proof of Tilly & the Book Wanderers which I’ll be reading this week and I am SO excited! I hope we both enjoy it 🙂

      I’m looking forward to it! I bought Floored right at the beginning of the month so I’ve already finished that one!

      I’m really looking forward to Goodbye, Perfect as I’ve not read any of Sara’s books yet but the plot sounded so interesting! I loved Unconventional last year so Theatrical is particularly highly anticipated!
