It’s October 1st! This means it’s time to talk about September. To start off the month we always talk about what books we added to our shelves the previous month. So how did we do? Did we add any amazing books to our collections? Keep on reading to see our September bookhaul!
In September I ended up adding more books to my shelves than I was planning, haha. I’m not complaining though. And I also actually have shelf space, so I don’t feel as bad. In September I added 10 books to my shelves (4 were gifted to me when I went shopping with my mother).
Babel – R.F. Kuang
Babel is a book I’ve seen and heard about a lot before and since it’s released. I actually got the really pretty Illumicrate edition, but it’s too pretty to read, haha. And the boyfriend added it to his collection of The Poppy War special editions on his shelf. I have a feeling I’m going to want to tab this one, so I got a paperback copy as well.
Carrie Soto is Back – Taylor Jenkins Reid
Taylor Jenkins Reid has become an auto-buy author for me. Even though I have the e-arc I had to get the paperback. It’s a floppy one too and that made me very happy! I have a feeling once I pick up Carrie Soto is Back I won’t want to put it down.
A Kingdom of Flame and Fury – Whitney Dean
I’ve really started to enjoy paranormal romance and A Kingdom of Flame and Fury sounds right up my alley. Seeing how I also signed up to be on this author’s street team it’s really time for me to read the first book before the sequel releases in December. It’s over 500 pages, so I get plenty of time with this world and characters it seems.
Violet Made of Thorns – Gina Chen
Violet Made of Thorns is a book I’ve seen around a lot since it released and look at how pretty this cover is! A morally grey witch, a cursed prince, and a prophecy? Sign me up! Sounds like everything I need to love this book.
A Court of Silver Flames – Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Silver Flames is a book I’ve been debating about buying since it released. I’m not a big fan of the cover change if I’m being completely honest. Lately I’ve been loving reading my physical books and this one is floppy, so I decided to pick it up. This is one I’ve taken too long to read.
All Boys Aren’t Blue – George M. Johnson
I don’t really read nonfiction, but All Boys Aren’t Blue is one I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about. It also has an amazing cover. This was actually a group read for September in one of my book clubs. I ended up being a bit distracted, but I will read this one soon.
Hide – Kiersten White
So it’s now October and spooky season! Hide is a book that seems pretty spooky and that I’ve been intrigued by since I heard about it. Could you stand staying in an abandoned amusement park for 7 days to win a prize if no one catches you? I mean we all know things are going to get dangerous. I know I couldn’t do it!
Misfit – Elle Kennedy
Books that take place at boarding schools or prep schools are something I’m always interested in. So when I found out Elle Kennedy (whose books I’ve loved) wrote a book like this I needed it! Misfit was at the bookstore when I went there this week, so it had to come home with me.
Court of the Vampire Queen – Katee Roberts
Spooky season also means vampires! Court of the Vampire Queen is one I’ve had my eye on and I finally got it. I love this cover and I read this is a bundle of three stories in one. I’ve read the first 5 chapters and it’s definitely steamy.
Magnolia Parks – Jessa Hastings
I’ve been watching a lot of booktube lately and one book I keep seeing is Magnolia Parks. Readers have been saying amazing things about this book even if you apparently hate the characters near the end, haha. It’s time for me to read this book myself.
I got one new physical book, a pre-order. And I spent 2 credits on Audible. I picked audiobooks that I already physically own but it was a great way to get through a small part of my TBR.
The Final Gambit – Jennifer Lynn Barnes
One of my most anticipated releases of the year! So of course I had to get a copy. It took a while before I got it, but as soon as I did I flew through it. What an amazing conclusion to the trilogy.
As Good As Dead – Holly Jackson
I was looking forward to the release for months and then I never read it. Getting the audiobook helped me read it now and I am so happy I did. I might spend my Audible credit this way more often as I really like getting through my TBR through audiobooks.
Lair of Dreams – Libba Bray
Another one I own physically, I loved the first book in the Diviners series and I’m super happy to have finally read book 2. I might actually get book 3 with my remaining credit haha.
So that’s our September bookhaul! Have you read any of the books we added to our collections? What amazing books did you add to your shelves in September? Let us know in the comments! We’d love to hear from you.
