Amanda’s Birthday Book Haul

Hi, lovelies! I know usually I would be posting my TBR jar picks for September, but I didn’t really read anything at all last month. So, I’m not going to pretend like I think this month or go any better. Instead, I’m here to share all the books I bought and/or were gifted to me during the month of August. My birthday is August 1st, so all the books I get during the month are birthday books. Don’t question it, that’s just how it works.

I managed to stop and finally meet one of my favorite internet friends, Avhlee (find her here!) while on my moving road trip. We, of course, had to stop at the bookstore. She so kindly paid for my selections as a birthday gift. Thank you, Avhlee, for these books!

Wild is the Witch by Rachel Griffin
Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren
My Favorite Half-Night Stand by Christina Lauren

While traveling, I also stopped to see my in-laws and stay with them for a few days. During my time with them, they took me to 2nd and Charles for the first time. It was absolute heaven and I had so much fun. I bought myself quite a stack, for my birthday, of course.

The Wild Robot by Peter Brown
The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth
Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin
Walled City by Ryan Graudin
The Iron Trial by Holly Black & Cassandra Clare
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett – I found the Puffin+Pantone edition and just couldn’t help myself.

Finally, my wonderful blogging partner (and lifelong best friend), Antonia, sent me an e-giftcard so that I could go a little crazy for the 50% off hardcover sale at Barnes and Nobel (right before they were revealed for doing shady things to debut books). I bought a few books that sound good but are outside my usual sci-fi/romance/fantasy genres.

City of the Plague God by Sarwat Chadda

An Arrow to the Moon by Emily X.R. Pan

The Drowning Summer by Christine Lynn Herman

Fiona and Jane by Jean Chen Ho

The Perishing by Natashia Deón

Sister Stardust by Jane Green

The High House by Jessie Greengrass

I was gifted one final book related thing for my birthday. My Grammy sent me a gift card. I haven’t used it yet, but I’m planning to buy The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes.

Did you get any new books this month?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
