Happy December everyone! It is the start of a new month and the last month of 2022. So, I am back with another book haul. This haul consists of 17 books which is way more than I expected but I’m very happy with the haul. It has some books gifted by publishers, pre-orders, gifts and a couple I’ve picked up for myself. Here is my November book haul!
At the start of November I went on a little shopping trip and picked up a couple of books whilst there. I picked up Conversations on Love by Natasha Lunn as I’ve had my eye on this for a while and have seen some amazing things about it. Also, Once Upon a Broken Heart by Stephanie Garber as I’ve been meaning to read it for a long time now.
I was incredibly lucky in November to be gifted a few books by lovely publishers. Haprer360 gifted me a copy of Nothing Sung and Nothing Spoken by Nina Tyndall which I cannot wait to read! Electric Monkey gifted me a copy of Well, That Was Unexpected by Jesse Q. Sutanto which I’ve already loved and thoroughly enjoyed. Lastly, Macmillan sent me a copy of Promise Boys by Nick Brooks which sounds beyond incredible and I cannot wait to read it.
I had a few pre-orders arrive this month too! Whiteout was one of them. After reading Blackout last year I cannot wait to read this one. Also, Astrid Parker Doesn’t Fail by Ashley Herring Blake which I’ve heard excellent things about.
On another shopping trip I picked myself up even more books that have been on my wishlist for a while. And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer by Fredrik Backman which is such a stunning short story I will read over and over again. Never Forget You by Fiona Lucas as I’ve seen it non-stop on TikTok. Also, Lark and Kasim Start a Revolution by Kacen Callender. I’ve read the authors other books and loved them so I had to pick this one up.
As Christmas is almost here, I wanted to get a couple of books to read over the Christmas season. So, I picked up Window Shopping by Tessa Bailey which I wanted to read last year but couldn’t get my hands on. Also, A Merry Little Christmas by Julie Murphy and Sierra Simone which sounds like the perfect book to read under a blanket by the Christmas tree.
I want on a little trip to some bookshops with my best friend this month. I saw the special edition of Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston and I could not leave without it. It is stunning and I adored the book so I treated myself. I spotted Paris Daillencourt Is About to Crumble by Alexis Hall and picked that up too. I found Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata in a charity shop and picked that up straight away. Then I saw Infamous by Lex Croucher and The Undiscovered Deaths of Grace McGill by C. S. Robertson in another shop and had to pick them up.
So, I ended the month with 17 more books than I began it with. Thank you so much to the publishers who gifted me some of the books included in this haul!
