A September Book Haul // the month I behaved

Another month has come and gone, and it’s time for another book haul to see what I added to my bookshelves in September! Thanks to money being tight these days, I have reigned in my book spending quite a bit. Most of the books I got in September were pre-orders that I paid for months ago.

As always, I want to reiterate that you do not need to buy and own a lot of books in order to be considered a book blogger or lover. I am quite frugal with everything else so that I can buy books because I love them, but I do not ever want to make you feel bad if you cannot afford to buy books or have poor access where you live.

A Giant Book Haul for Quarantine May-August & Unhauling some books

Long time no see, friends! My hiatus has extended further than anticipated, but the pile of new books has gotten so precarious that it’s time for me to get a book haul up. And everyone loves a good book haul! Plus, maybe this will motivate me to write the handful of reviews I’ve got backlogged… but considering this post took five days to write, I might need more time.

This haul is brought to you by series that began last year with sequels! Seriously… and because I have the memory of a goldfish and need to re-read everything, it will take some time to read all of these. *sobs*

I’m also selling some books I didn’t enjoy as much as I’d hoped. Since most of these are beloved books or signed, figured I’d include the unhaul at the bottom of this post.

As always, I want to reiterate that you do not need to buy and own a lot of books in order to be considered a book blogger or lover.
