January Book Haul!

This is my first actual book haul post ever! It’s the first time where I’ve gotten a significant number books in one month, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to do a book haul.

Jan Book Haul 2

I got a total of six lovely books this month:

  • The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – I read this book early last year and absolutely fell in love with it. I’ll definitely be re-reading it at some point in the hopefully not-too-distant future.
  • All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr – I’ve heard only amazing things about this book, so I’m dying to read it. I’m hoping to get to it in the next couple of weeks!
  • Throne of Glass #2-4 and The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas – I could not find Throne of Glass ANYWHERE. No bookstores had it. I’ve looked in so many stores, but the first book is just never in stock. I’m hoping to get it from Book Depository sometime soon. At least I managed to get all the others!

What books do you guys get this month? I’d love to see your book hauls, so feel free to leave a link to your post in the comments!


Update | I finally bought some books!

It’s been so, so long since I’ve bought any books! I don’t normally buy books because they’re expensive(ish) in New Zealand, and I don’t have a credit/debit card, so buying stuff online is a major hassle. And I don’t have much money to begin with…

Anyway, I was determined to buy some books today! I ended up getting A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas, and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I read Fangirl earlier in the year, and loved it, so I really want to re-read it. I’m super excited to read ACOTAR, hopefully in the next couple of weeks! I really wanted to get Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli, but the store didn’t have it >.< Next time! Also, there was a ‘buy 1, get 1 half price’ deal on, so that was a bonus.


ACOTAR is one of the few books I’ve bought before reading. I can’t even remember the last time I bought a new (not second hand or whatever) book that I’m yet to read. I’m really worried about spending $20+ on a book I don’t end up liking, so that’s why I normally buy books that I love and want to re-read. However, I love SJM’s writing style and I’ve seen only great reviews about this book, so I’m fairly confident I’ll enjoy it *fingers crossed!*
My Fangirl

I was a little surprised to see that the store only had the fan art edition of Fangirl. I’m definitely not complaining, though! It included a couple of pieces of artwork on the inside covers, which I love.

Aren’t they gorgeous?!

So, that’s my mini book haul! Since I don’t buy books very often, I always get super excited when I do 🙂

Just a side note, I won’t be posting a WWW Wednesday this week. Also, I might not be posting much over the next few weeks, but I’ll make a full post on that tomorrow.

I hope you’re all enjoying your holidays!
