What should be happening with this post is it should be empty because I am on a book buying ban. But, what is actually happening with this post is there is a book haul of 7 books in total. Clearly, I am very good at staying on a book buying ban but we won’t talk about that. Granted, a book I had on pre-order, I bought a couple based on wonderful reviews and I was also gifted a few books! I will highlight next to books that were gifted. So, here is my September book haul!
September started out with some wonderful book mail from a wonderful publisher. This book mail was You Say it First by Katie Cotugno (gifted). I read this almost immediately and really enjoyed it, you can find my full review of it here.
A few days after getting the book mail I stepped foot in a bookshop. This is never a good idea when on a book buying ban. So, of course I bought a couple of books. I bought I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara ahead of the Crime Readathon I am hosting alongside The Little Contemporary Corner (be sure to join in, it is going to be a lot of fun!). Also, I bought One Day by David Nicholls which I have been meaning to read for way too long now! I cannot wait to see what I think of both of these.
The lovely Charlie over at Little Tiger / Stripes wanted to support us during the Crime Readathon so sent me copies of Agent Zaiba Investigates: The Missing Diamonds by Annabelle Sami (gifted) and Agent Zaiba Investigates: The Poison Plot by Annabelle Sami (gifted). These will definitely be on my TBR throughout the readathon and I cannot wait to give them a read.
I had one pre-order arrive this month and that was Into the Spotlight by Carrie Hope Fletcher. I will always buy anything that Carrie writes and I am so excited that this one is a children’s book! The last book I got this month was The Bi-ble Volume 1! I bought this after Jaz from Travels in Fiction and Sophie from The Little Contemporary Corner hosted a Insta live on bi-visibility day in which they discussed this book. They talked about it so highly that I just had to buy a copy! I’m going to be reading it very soon.
Overall, I ended the month with 7 more physical books than I started which is definitely a lot more than I thought. It is my birthday this week, so, my book buying ban is on a hold for this week and then back on for the end of the month!
What books did you buy in September and what books are you excited for in October? Let me know in the comments!
