June/July Book Haul // July 19, 2015

I have been buying books like crazy for the past 3 days (and also the past few weeks). Mostly because some of them were on sale, then Indigo had this 2 books for $15 promotion. I decided to put together all the books I bought within past month (starting from late June) because I have been posting pictures of them rather randomly. And when I did, I was shocked. I bought a total of 26 books! I clearly have a problem.

June purchases:



I mentioned those books before, but I don't think I posted the pictures of all of them. (Crossed out the ones I've already read.)

  • "The Queen of Tearling" by Erika Johansen
  • "Instrumental" by James Rhodes
  • "Shiver", "Linger" by Maggie Siefvater
  • "Scorpio Races" by Maggie Stiefvater
  • "Life After Life" by Kate Atkinson
  • "The Maze Runner" and "The Scorch Trials" by James Dashner

July purchases:



  • "Red Queen" by Victoria Aveyard
  • "Shadow and Bone" by Leigh Bardugo
  • “Ash” by Malinda Lo
  • “Aristotle and Dante Discover The Secrets of The Universe” by Benjamin Alire Saenz
  • “Notes of a Dirty Old Man” by Charles Bukowski
  • "An Ember in the Ashes" by Sabaa Tahir
  • "Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins
  • “On Writers and Writing” by Margaret Atwood (non-fiction)
  • “Moral Disorder and other stories” by Margaret Atwood (collection)



  • "The 5th Wave" by Rick Yancey"
  • "The Fault in Our Stars" by John Green
  • "Cinder" by Marissa Meyer
  • "Throne of Glass" by Srah J. Maas
  • "Collected Stories" by Garcia Marqueez
  • "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" by Ransom Riggs

Almost all of these books were either on promotion (2 for $15) or I got them from the bargain store.

But today I bought another set of books. Just because I have just finished "Insurgent" and needed to get my hands on "Allegiant" as soon as possible, I got myself all four books.


  • "Divergent" by Veronica Roth
  • "Insurgent" by Veronica Roth
  • "Allegiant" by Veronica Roth
  • "Four" by Veronica Roth

Also from the bargain store. The books are in mint condition, only the box has some scrapes and tears and it even had a (half-torn) plastic wrap. The books are 100% new and it is a far cry from the state that the library copy of "Insurgent" is. I felt disgusted handling it.

So here we go.  26 books. It's insane! But I am pumped to be reading them! All in due time though.
