Here are 7 Anticipated Reads for November & December 2019

The year is winding down and Publishing”s Assault on My Bank Account Balance is finally beginning to wane. Which is good, because I just made the appalling revelation that 2/3 of the books on my shelves I haven’t read yet. Expect a shame post on this at some point once I get my motivation to actually write posts.

As there aren’t many November and December releases, I decided to combine the rest of the year into this edition of Anticipated Reads. It is almost as if everyone is leaving December to the Children of Blood and Bone follow-up, but I’ll take it as I have a lot of reading to do!

📝 In case you are wondering how I manage to keep track of upcoming releases and choose the books I am most excited to highlight, check out my Edelweiss 2.0 Guide!

Book Haul: August & September 2019

You know how time just gets away from you? I swear the months keep flying by and my haul posts keep going by the wayside. Unacceptable. This post was also supposed to go up yesterday, but surprise, I hadn’t written it yet. Oops. I was going to skip the post but really didn’t want to continue this habit of quarterly haul posts of doom, so here we are.

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.

Book Event for There Will Come a Darkness by Katy Rose Pool

I love epic fantasy; how it builds the world around you and you find yourself completely immersed. But I prefer the pacing of YA epic fantasy… so naturally when I heard about There Will Come a Darkness it landed itself onto my much desired list.

In case you haven’t heard of this book before, here’s a quick lists of some non-spoilery things you will find between its pages:

✨ creepy cults
✨ ruthless girls
✨ boys with a LOT of feelings
✨ siblings
✨ doomsday prophecies

And now that I’ve piqued your interest, let’s dive into the conversation Katy had with Kiersten White, shall we?

Book Haul: May, June & July 2019

Welcome to three months worth of book haul, friends! It’s certainly been awhile since I posted a book haul, but that is more a result of my slump, hiatus, and move to self-hosted in the last few months than my not acquiring new books. (I have a problem, friends. See the shame total graphic! Sure it breaks down to $6.96 a book, but STILL.)

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.
