June Book Haul // Book Buying Ban? Nope, sorry, never heard of that!

What happened to my book buying ban you ask? *sweats nervously*

We don’t talk about that in this household! πŸ˜›

No but seriously, I actually did quite well when it comes to buying (or not buying) books this month! All of the books that will be mentioned here had been ordered before I declared my book buying ban in my VERY HUGE AND VERY FANGIRLY BOOK HAUL — they just hadn’t arrived yet at the time!

I have accumulated 9 books in June which is still okay, I believe! And all of these are books that I’ve wanted FOR AGES so that’s another plus πŸ˜‰

(ALL OF THESE PICTURES ARE MY OWN SO DON’T YOU DARE STEAL THEM OR I WILL THROW BRICKS AT YOU! If you want to use them, you may ask nicely and I’ll see what I can do! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!)


THE SERIES

AngelfallI have finally decided to buy the physical copies of the first two books in the Angelfall aka Penryn and the End of Days series! I’ve read the first book when I had a free 7-day Kindle Unlimited subscription BUT FOR SOME REASON they only had the third book available for Unlimited users — but not the second?????? Does that make sense to anyone??? No?? Didn’t think so πŸ˜› So obviously I had to purchase them to be able to continue reading! πŸ˜›

You can find my review of Angelfall here!


The Young ElitesSeries numΓ©ro #2 issssss *drumroll please*

Okay, who am I kidding… you can CLEARLY see the picture!

The Young Elites series by Marie Lu! I’ve had the first book for quite a while but I never got around to reading it! People keep talking about these books left and right so I just had to buy the rest of the series! I AM HOPING TO BRING THESE BOOKS WITH ME ON VACATION!!!! *fingers crossed*


BOOKS I’VE BEEN MEANING TO BUY FOR SO LONG (AND NOW I HAVE)

Haul

I see Daughter of the Pirate King EVERYWHERE and it always used to make me so sad because I’ve been anticipating this book for so long but I was too broke to buy it! Then I saw it on my beloved used bookstore website for 10 bucks INSTEAD OF 17 so I knew that this was fate giving me a sign πŸ˜› (also, it’s literally a new book and not used at all lol)

And The Sun Is Also a Star was a very spontaneous buy because I saw it “used” on Amazon (even though it literally looks like it’s never been touched before) FOR THREE BUCKS. HELLO. THREE BUCKS. I COULDN’T NOT BUY IT!!! And the cover is absolutely gorgeous and it’s so much prettier in real life! *heart eyes*


GIVEAWAY BOOKS

Giveaway

AHHHHHH THESE ARE PROBABLY THE BOOKS THAT I’M MOST EXCITED ABOUT!!!!!!

I am suuuuper lucky to have won Zuky’s 500 follower celebration giveaway! There were literally 900 entries — AND I WON????? *squeals*

I was allowed to get as many books as I wanted up as long as they were Β£25 — and it took me so long to think of which ones to get! I’ve had 5 books in mind but I just couldn’t decide!

I ended up getting both Queens of Geek and The Upside of Unrequited because they were two of my most highly anticipated releases of the year! And then it came to the third and last book AND I WAS SO TORN BETWEEN SIMON VS, GEEKERELLA AND RADIO SILENCE.

But I ended up going withΒ Radio Silence because I have the Simon VsΒ Ebook and I’ve already read GeekerellaΒ (BUT I WANNA REREAD AGAIN) (shut up Jackie) so I thought I better get a book that I haven’t actually read yet or own!

Thanks again to Zuky for hosting the giveaway and purchasing these books for me! ❀


SEE, TECHNICALLY I ONLY BOUGHT 6 OUT OF THE 9 BOOKS SO I HAVEN’T DONE TOO BAD……. RIGHT?! HEHE. ARE YOU PROUD OF ME? WELL YOU SHOULD BE *puffs chest*

Thanks for reading!

Buttonnnn

    I seriously have so many of these books on my ‘buy at some point’ list??? Especially World After as I do plan on eventually continuing with that trilogy! But also the Young Elites trilogy because I can’t believe I haven’t read any Marie Lu book after Champion! And I LOVED that trilogy. This makes no sense to myself! xD

    Great haul and I hope you end up loving all of these books! ❀

    Awesome Haul! Penryn and the End of Days is my favorite trilogy I hope you enjoy reading it. I loved the Young Elites but I haven’t finished the series yet so I’m planning to finish it before the end of this year. Daughter Of The Pirate King is a great read and totally entertaining! I think you’ll definitely love it.

    I LITERALLY READ THE YOUNG ELITES 2 days ago and The Rose Society yesterday AND I LOVED THE FIRST BOOK. The 2nd book = I AM FEELING CONFLICTED. And I’ll probably read the last book on Monday. QUEENS OF GEEK sounds awesome but I heard The Sun Is Also A Star takes place OVER ONE DAY so Idk if I wanna read it? AND THE UPSIDE OF UNREQUITED, I’ve heard fabulous things!

      OMG MAHRIYA what a coincidence πŸ˜‚ May told me that see CRIED while reading the last book (and she never cries so it must be a big deal!!!). I say don’t forget your tissues when reading it. AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!!!

      Omg does it? I usually don’t like books that take places over just one day damn why didn’t I know about that before??? Fingers crossed I’ll still like it!!!

        May is SUPER HEARTLESS so this is very…SURPRISING. I’ll make sure to have my tissues at the ready. Hopefully I’m not reading in public BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE AWKWARD.

        Yeah, and it’s a love story taking place over like ONE DAY (i think? I’m starting to doubt my self) so that would mean it’s slow paced which I could get used to BUT it also means INSTA-LOVE, right?

        EXACTLY. I’m the complete opposite like I literally cry at almost EVERY book I read! #emotional

        OMG I hate reading books in public for that exact reason fjdkdknd whenever a sad scenes comes up I’m like NOPE BYE I’LL FINISH THIS AT HOME. WHEN I’M ALONE. IN MY ROOM.

        Oh damn, I really need to do more research before buying books because that COULD mean insta-love and I hatehatehate that. But everyone has said it’s a lot better than Nicola Yoon’s first novel so we’ll see!
