September - November Book Haul '16

This is insane. I have not done a haul since my birthday haul which is ridiculous and I have gained so many books since then because I have a very obvious problem.

This haul does not include the many things I got for Christmas. This is just all the books that I have accumulated since my birthday but before December. It's a lot but not as many as I thought which might mean I am getting better at not binge buying.  [Plus, I have bought one book in January which I am very proud of myself for doing because normally I would have bought eight by now. And there have been some releases that I am dying to get my hands on but I won't buy them for awhile]

Anyways, let's jump right into this haul. 


1. Wendy Darling Stars by Colleen Oakes 

This is a Peter Pan retelling which I live for so I bought this one. I have heard some good things about this book and I have decided to check it out. I believe that it is also a little more NA rather than YA which I am excited about. 

2. Never Ever by Sara Saedi

This is another Peter Pan retelling and I have read many reviews on this one and have decided to try it for myself, although I haven't picked it up yet which is annoying. I am excited to though so that will be fun to try. 

3. Three Dark Crowns by Kendra Blake

I have heard controversial things about this book but I did end up purchasing it because do you see how gorgeous that cover is? I kid. I really want to read it because it sounds so different and new. 

4. Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan

I own the first book and now I have the second. Plus, I always buy his books because why would I not? They always excel at making me amused. Well except for those cliffhangers. :( 

5. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo 

I finally read Six of Crows and I had to purchase the second book. Plus, the cover is so beautiful. I really need to start this book because I want to find out what is going on with Kaz and his crew. 

6. Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

I honestly don't even know why I bought this when I am so behind on this series. I even preordered it for some reason. But it has really thin pages which is cool and I plan to catch up with this series this year. 

7. Red Rising by Pierce Brown

I have heard so many good things about this book and I got it at a book sale for pretty cheap so I purchased it. And it is an Adult Fantasy so I'm excited. 

8. Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

I also got this at the same book sale and I was missing the second book so now I have it. But I am a little sad that it is the paperback when all the others in the series are hardbacks. :( 

9. City of Ashes by Cassandra Claire

I do not like the old covers of this series so I am so happy that I found this for like a dollar at a sale. And it is in such good condition so I purchased it and am getting rid of the old cover one. I really want to get the whole series in the new covers. 

10. Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead

I have not read any of this series but I purchased this one because it was a dollar and I had to. I'm kind of upset with myself for purchasing it but I will get to this series as soon as I am able to. 

11. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

I have heard mixed things about this book but I bought it because I was going to read it before the movie came out. Unfortunately they changed the rating from PG-13 to R on the movie so I was unable to see it with my friend which sucks. I still plan on reading this though. 

12. The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey

I really enjoyed this book so I bought it at a book sale. It doesn't currently have a good spot on my bookshelf as it is kind of full but I will fit it in. I will probably reread this one as well. 

13. Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

I bought this at the book sale as well because it was pretty cheap and it is also in hardcover which I am not too thrilled with but I made it work on my shelf. And I have a special home for Sarah J. Maas' books. Well, until I buy all the ACOTAR books [I only have the second]. 

14. Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson

This was available at the same sale in the mass market paperback form. I am not thrilled with having them in this form but they fit easily on my shelf which I am happy about. I really want to read these as well. 

15. The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson

Same goes for this one. It was also available in the mass market paperback form so I bought it. 

16. The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson

Same goes for this one. It was also available in the mass market paperback form so I bought it. 

17. Maximum Ride School's Out Forever by James Patterson

I read the first of these books a couple months ago and ended up really enjoying it so I purchased this one in mass market paperback form. I hope to get to it soon. 


1. Emma Swan from Once Upon a Time POP Funko

Pop Funko figures are honestly the cutest thing ever. I love them so much and am happy that they are branching out to so many tv shows and movies. I bought her from Barnes and Noble because she was on special and I couldn't resist. I love the show and the character. 

That is it for this haul and blogpost. What have you purchased recently?
