November Book Haul

Thursday, 17 December 2015

Hey guys! I thought I'd do a little post that amalgamates all of the photos I've put together on Instagram over the past few weeks to document the books I got in the month of November! Now these are a combination of books that I've either bought myself, been given by my blogging friends or have been sent by the wonderful people in the publishing industry! I thought I'd turn this into a monthly segment for my blog so you guys can see the books that I'll be reviewing in the near future, and hopefully this builds up your excitement for them as much as mine! 

Now I admit, this book haul is a little bit late purely because I've been away and I haven't had a chance to photograph all of the books that I've received this month. My December book haul might come around a bit earlier than anticipated because of the fact that with moving, I can't take all of my books with me so therefore it might be slightly delayed! Thus, doing it earlier will help me out a great deal! From January you should also expect there to be less books in my book hauls due to the fact that there isn't as much space for books where I'll be going, which is sad.

So without further ado, here are the books that I received in the month of November!

This month, I was super proud of myself because I only bought one book this month. The rest were either sent to me by publishers or received from people. I'm incredibly grateful as per usual. This month I'm hauling 12 books which is an improvement from last time. Only a slight improvement, but still, progress is progress! 

For reference, please ignore The Young Elites in the photograph, I realised I hauled this a long time ago after the photograph was taken and I lost the light to be able to take it again. Instead, please replace it in your minds with Carry On by Rainbow Rowell! 


This month I was incredibly fortunate because I received 4 books. 3 of which are to review, and one of them I received as part of a book subscription box!

The Island and Illuminae were sent from Rock the Boat - I've already reviewed Illuminae but this final copy was sent to add to my collection. Beautiful Broken Things was sent by Gill over at The Happy Reader (Book Magpie on Twitter) Finally, Wolf by Wolf was the book in the Illumicrate book subscription box!

These are the books I received and their release dates:
  • The Island by Olivia Levez (March 3rd 2015)
  • Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard (February 11th 2016)
  • Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (October 22nd 2015)
  • Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin (November 5th 2015)


This month I was very good and very restrained because I only bought 1 book. To me, that is incredibly impressive!  

This particular book was one I had pre-ordered a while back, and that was Winter by Marissa Meyer, the fourth and final instalment in the Lunar Chronicles series, not counting the novellas of course.

If you haven't read any of the Lunar Chronicles books, I highly recommend them. 

These are the books I received and their release dates:
  • Winter by Marissa Meyer (November 10th 2015)


This month I was incredibly fortunate because an author send a signed copy of her latest book to me but I also won two giveaways! One from Rhys at Thirst for Fiction and another from Charnell's at Reviews from a Bookworm. 

I can't thank both of these people enough, they're seriously the nicest. Thank you Rhys for Stand Off and Winger, and Charnell for The Wrath and The Dawn, The Rose Society, My True Love Gave to Me and Carry On!

*Once again, please ignore The Young Elites, and instead replace it with Carry On in your mind! I will be referring to it as Carry On below.

These are the books I received and their release dates:
  • The Rose Society by Marie Lu (October 13th 2015)
  • *Carry On by Rainbow Rowell (October 6th 2015)
  • Through the Dark by Alexandra Bracken (October 6th 2015)
  • The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh (May 12th 2015)
  • My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins (November 5th 2015)
  • Winger by Andrew Smith (May 14th 2013)
  • Stand Off by Andrew Smith (September 10th 2015)

So there we have it! All 12 books! I'm super excited about this month's haul. I cannot wait to get around to some of these. Some I have already finished and I can tell you now that they are brilliant. Definitely would recommend Winter and Illuminae!

Let me know what books you guys have recently purchased/received for review etc in the comments below or on any of my social media platforms. I'd love to hear about them! If you have any specific recommendations then definitely let me know, I'm always open to suggestions!
