Amanda’s June Book Haul

Hi, lovelies!

So this month I went a liiiittle crazy buying books. Between Book Outlet’s fabulous sale where I bought 20+ new books and the discovery of the magic that is a local used bookstore (there’s three within fifteen minutes of my house!), I ended up with quite the book haul for this month.

I’ve never done a book haul post before so this is what we’re going to do. I’m going to put some pictures below of all of my new pretty books. I’m not going to talk about every single book because that would make this post entirely too long, but I am going to mention a few that I’m most excited to read in the upcoming month.

Let’s get down to it, here are all my new shiny pretty babies.


The Book Jumper by Mechthild Glaser – The summary of this book sounds so interesting I couldn’t help but buy it. It’s high on my TBR list for July. I’m excited to get into the story. It’s a book that’s been translated from German which I think is super interesting.

Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow – This was a Target find for me. I’ve seen several bookish friends read this and give it rave reviews. I’m excited to sink my teeth into it. I haven’t read enough realistic books lately.

Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman – Shusterman is an author that I love more and more everytime I read another one of his books. I managed to pick up this book with the Book Outlet sale. It’s won a few awards and sounds like a really powerful story.


Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling – I found the whole series (except for book seven) at one of the local bookstores I found around my town recently. I stupidly sold my full series set before I moved a few years ago and have regretted it since. So when I found the (almost) full set all matching and hardcover I just couldn’t resist.

The Mara Dyer series by Michelle Hodkin – I have heard so many good things about this trilogy. I’m super duper excited to read these books and will for sure be getting to them in July. When I found the boxed set on sale at Book Outlet I knew I had to have them.

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer – This series is one that a few bookish friends I know have started to read for the first time (Yes I’m talking about you Ebru @ EBS and Her Reads) so again, when I saw the boxed set on Book Outlet I knew I had to buy it and add it to my TBR for a reread soon.

This is my haul for the month of June! What did you haul this month? Did we buy any of the same books? What books don’t you see that I definitely should have bought?

Feel free to leave your thoughts and comments and as always,

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

What are you currently reading?

Amanda – I’m currently reading Overdrive by Dawn Ius. This was a library find. I actually picked this one by going to the section of books with author’s last names starting with I because we don’t have any reviews on our master list under that letter. I mentioned in my library haul post that I’m going to pick one book this way each time I visit the library.

Antonia – I’m currently reading The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan. I blew through the first four books in this series and absolutely can’t wait to see how it ends.

What did you recently finish reading?

Amanda – I finished reading The Plastic Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg over the weekend. Keep an out for my review, it will be posted on Friday.

Antonia – I just finished The House of Hades by Rick Riordan. It was fantastic and you’ll see my review of it soon.

What do you think you will read next?

Amanda – I’m honestly not sure. I have like thirty books that are currently in the mail on their way to me. (If you haven’t heard of Book Outlet you need to look into it now. Books for super cheap.) So I have quite a few to choose from. I will probably try to finish my library books before I get into the new books I ordered. So either Roseblood by A.G. Howard or As I Descended by Robin Talley.

Antonia – I have no idea. You can check out my Top Ten Tuesday post to see my TBR list but I’m really not sure what I’m in the mood for yet.

These are our W’s this week, what are yours?
