June 2018 Book Haul

Good afternoon, book nerds!

I hope everyone’s having a wonderful July so far! I’ve been pretty busy with general adulting (read: laying new sod and trying desperately to keep it alive in 90+ degree heat), 4th of July festivities, and helping plan my baby brother’s engagement party! In addition to all that jazz, I also spent the day yesterday catching up with my bestie via an afternoon movie date and an 8 p.m. screening of HBO‘s newest series (based of Gillian Flynn’s debut novel) SHARP OBJECTS! Did anybody else watch?? Did you read the creeptastic source material?? Except for a few minor changes and character merges it was a pretty faithful episode 1 so I’m definitely excited to see where the show goes!!

But now let’s dive into the reason you’re all here: My June 2018 Book Haul! It obviously was a smaller haul than my birthday month, but I still did some damage.

The Physical Haul:

Purchased via Amazon:bc1

Limelight by Amy Poeppel
The Accidental Bad Girl by Maxine Kaplan
The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
The Child Thief by Brom
The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco – Purchase heavily influenced by the lovely Lilly!

The Digital Haul:

ITALY Buys:bc3

*I should point out the version I purchased has the 20th Anniversary sticker embossed into the cover and the art is printed on the naked hardback; no jacket was issued for this version*

So that’s my short & sweet June Haul! Did you see any must-read titles? Have you read any of these yet and think I should get on the dang ball? Did we haul any of the same books this month? Let me know below!

And, as always, Happy Reading!

    Amazing haul! I’ve had The Child Thief on my TBR ever since I read Tiger Lily and fell in love with Peter Pan retellings, I really need to read it soon! I love The Bone Witch and Circe – I hope you enjoy them as much as I did 💕

      Girl, they don’t tell you but The Child Thief is a freaking TEXTBOOK. Like it’s not actually, but it’s huge. It’s a huge huge book. I simply wasn’t expecting it. But I would recommend getting the physical book because it’s filled with stunning – yet creepy – artwork. I really hope I get to most of these new-to-me titles soon!!

        I don’t have Song of Achilles! I heard about Circe through blogging, which I only started about two months ago… 6 weeks… And was sort of pushed into reading it by all the rave reviews. If I like it, I might pick up Song of Achilles though. I’m reading Circe for my book club this month. Which I also just started… So I’ll see how it goes 🙂
