Book Haul

September 2015 Book Haul~

I KNOW I was supposed to be on a book buying ban. But I definitely did much better with buying books compared to July and August. This month I bought 8 books. Almost all of which are helping to complete series I already own so it’s a win-win situation because I would have had to have bought them before anyway. (is it obvious I’m making excuses???)

Afterword Books!

When I found out my temp position was ending two weeks earlier than originally planned, I decided I needed a pick-me-up which is why I went to my favorite indie bookshop in Chicago. Shopping always makes me feel better. I gave myself the limit of only buying 4 books and I stuck to that limit.

  • Gone by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge – Goodreads
  • The Martian by Andy Weir – Goodreads
  • Insurgent by Veronica Roth – Goodreads
Barnes and Noble!!


As a going away gift, my boss got all my coworkers to sign this really sweet card that may or may not have made me tear up and also got me a Barnes and Noble gift card. I used this gift card well I think to help complete my Throne of Glass series. I would have bought Queen of Shadows too but the paperback isn’t out yet.

  • The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas – Goodreads
  • Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas – Goodreads
Half Price Books!!!


I went to Half Price to sell a few books and as anyone who’s been there knows, there was no way I was actually going to come away not spending money. That’s probably why they ask you to stick around while they sort through the books. Still I used this time spent (and the whole $5 I earned from my books) to help complete my Ender’s Game series. I still need quite a few books but I’m happy for now.

  • Ender’s Shadow by Orson Scott Card – Goodreads
  • Ender in Exile by Orson Scott Card – Goodreads

Over all I think I did pretty well with only buying books I meant to to help complete series already started in my collection.

Do you have an September Book Haul? Post a link in the comments and I’ll go check it out!

  1. I won’t be getting any books till next week Tuesday, Oct 6th…when both Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer and Shadows of Self come out! And I might get the Aeronauts Windlass too.

      1. I love Norse mythology. Well really any mythology. I love Mythology. And I know people will call me heathen but I prefer the Percy Jackson stuff over the Harry Potter stuff. Even the Kane stuff. Rick Riordan makes wonderful stuff.


      2. And now he is touching NORSE and its like Ooooooo yea lets see how he spruces up Odin and Thor and Freya and Loki! 😀

        And its implied from the blurbs that this kid might be related to Annabel Chase so that’s freaking hilarious.

      3. Oh man the Heroes of Olympus was better then Percy Jackson. Personally I loved the Roman stuff and the new characters, especially Frank and Hazel.


      4. Well what made it fun was it blends Greek and Roman together showing how the gods differed even though technically they were the same god.


      5. Magnus Chase is going to be a new starting point so I doubt familiarity will be needed. But its always good to have I suppose.
