October Books In My Mailbox

I know I said I only had one pre-order left for the year and that it’d be the only book I’d be getting until Christmas, but I lied (kind of).

I blame this month’s stack of books mostly on Robert Liparulo for writing such an intense, amazing series filled with cliffhanger endings, but I also blame the publisher for discontinuing the print of the series in hardback (and so quickly at that). It was a complete struggle to even find book #3 available for a reasonable price, and #4-6 ran out of Amazon stock between putting them in my cart and trying to complete an order. I didn’t want to risk having to have part of the series in hardback and part in paperback by waiting so I snatched up the whole series as soon as I found alternate places to purchase them. I was also given a book as a gift for Halloween, so that almost doesn’t even count. 

This will be the last of the books I buy myself for the remainder of the year. I’m sure of it.*

*Unless something wildly out of my control happens, like a forgotten must-have pre-order, but I doubt this is likely.



September Books In My Mailbox

There were a lot of pre-orders in September and one of the October pre-orders shipped early. Plus, I ordered two additional books because they were so incredibly cheap on discount, I couldn’t resist. This will be the last big month of books for the year as I only have one pre-order left for the end of October. It’s hard to believe I’ll receive nothing until Christmas after that. It kind of makes me sad, but I do still have plenty to read and with the holidays approaching my time will be largely occupied anyway. So, onto September books, yes?
