A Very, VERY Big Collective Book Haul!


Random Fact of the Day: The ant can lift things 10 times its own weight.

Hello sunshines! Okay, brace yourself. Put on some good music, drink some hot (or cold) tea, and get snug…because this Book Haul is the biggest I’ve ever done on this blog. This is both a good and bad thing, for I bought/received SOO many awesome novels this month and last month. However, that isn’t too good for my pockets & my parents’ bank accounts… xD So yes, this is a collective haul from both May* and June!

*This does include my Haul from YALLWest, but only the ones that I received/purchased. I am not re-hauling the ones I got signed. If you are interested in those, check out my discussion.

Since this is going to be a fairly long post, let’s just get into the books!

Now, I am expecting a few books to come in this July, but I mean…we’ll save that for another haul!! I don’t want to make this a 60+ book haul xD Also, it may be likely that I forgot some novels, just because I had SO many, lol. But yes, this is my May & June (for the most part) Book Haul Extravaganza! All together I think I counted about 52 novels collectively, including the samplers from BFestBuzz! I am super thankful for all the novels I received/purchased this month, so a special thank you to my parents, the BABF, to the people at Barnes & Noble, all the publishers/authors, and all those big companies you see above!

Did you post a book haul this month? What do you think about any of the novels I hauled today? Chat with me in the comments! 🙂

Thanks for reading and I’ll see you next time…
