This month (aside from YALC) has been quieter book buying month for me! I actually started using the library I work in as a book source rather than buying everything that I want to read. This is saving me a lot of money but also means my hauls are slightly smaller than usual! I hardly went in a bookshop this month but that doesn’t mean this haul is going to be extremely small small! A couple of these books were gifted by publishers, this will be mentioned in brackets next to the book. Make sure you keep an eye out in the next couple of days for a dedicated YALC book haul! Here is my July book haul!
Right at the beginning of the month I was gifted a couple of books that I am very excited to read by wonderful publishers! These are Slay by Brittney Morris (gifted) and The Liars by Jennifer Mathieu (gifted). I am going to be taking these books with me to Sicily this month and I cannot wait to dive into them!
I did take a little trip to a book shop whilst on a day out with my boyfriend early on in July. Whilst there I bought Heartstream by Tom Pollock and How to Be Luminous by Harriet Reuter Hapgood. I have already read Heartsteam and I throughly enjoyed it and really recommend it!
Towards the end of the month I spotted a book I have been searching for for a long time in my local supermarket. This is Stranger Things: Worlds Turned Upside Down. This is a little behind the scenes book all about the series, the process writting and filming the show. I love books like this and cannot wait to look through this book, especially after finishing watching series 3 very recently!
Finally, the last book I bought this month was another of my highly anticipated reads. The Starlight Watchmaker by Lauren James. If you know me, you will know how much I love Lauren James books so of course I jumped on buying this book as soon as I could. I cannot wait to read this when I have the chance because I want to storm through it in one go!
Overall, July has been a quiet book buying month for me! I am hoping that I can keep my book buying under wraps again for the duration of August especially after buying so many at YALC!
