This is where I feature the books I received, bought, gifted or won that are recently added to my physical shelf, which means no e-books and the like, and recount epic book hauling stories. It is usually posted on Saturdays.
I got so many books this month I kind of forgot what they were or even where they all are. Since I don’t have any shelf to put them I just put them back in their packaging and stash them anywhere I have space, which meant I had to go hunt for them before I made this post. Fun times.
OKAY. So I have way more books than last month’s haul. Yes, I spent WAY more than my limit but 20 books for less than $45? Oh yeah. I am a bargain shopper. The only book in this haul I bought in its original price is Ruin and Rising. I love buying and collecting books and if I don’t take the chance of buying them when they’re cheap, you’re going to find me begging on the street for more books. I mean... food.

MOST FAVORITE BOOK of 2013 (review HERE) and it's in my to-own-in-hardcover list because the hardcover is GORGEOUS.
And the spine is so pretty!
The first ever Stephen King book I own. I have yet to read any book by him and it WILL happen. As soon as I finish this madness that is my life right now. That book is HUGE. It will require plenty of reading time.
The cheapest of them all. It's $1 for both. I actually have no idea if these books are any good but I've heard really good things about Jojo Moyes' Me Before You so why not? And I picked up The Dog just because it was told in the dog's perspective. Piques your interest, doesn't it?
And these I traded to one of the books I have an extra copy of. There was a bit of confusion - I was expecting Everbound but I got Everneath instead. Anyway, Everbound is on its way and since the person I traded with doesn't want me to return Everneath, I have now two copies of the book.
Lastly, I got Uglies by Scott Westerfeld so now I have the first two books! I'll wait until I have the last two and then marathon it.
And... I forgot about Small Steps by Louis Sachar. I read Holes earlier this year and liked it. My sister REALLY liked it. This cover doesn't match my copy of Holes but it's $1 so come on.
Well, that is all for my July haul (eventhough it's actually August now). I just realized how long this post is. Don't mind my rambling. Share the books you got this week, today or even last month in the comments below!
