Hello guys~ It’s been awhile since I posted, and even longer since I posted a book haul. You may or may not know, last month, November, was my birth month. I am born on the 30th of November, and because it was my birthday, I received discounts at my local bookstore. So, of course, I went all out and bought books.
Tadaaa~! This is my November/ Birthday book haul. I bought all but one at my local bookstore, MPH Bookstore. And for An Illustrated History of Noble Shadowhunters and Denizens of Downworld, I bought from Book Depository.
1. An Illustrated History of Notable Shadowhunters and Denizens of Downworld by Cassandra Clare and Cassandra Jean
So, I bought this mainly because I’m such a Shadowhunters chronicle fan that I have to own all Shadowhunter-related books out there.
Of course, that’s not the only reason I bought this. I bought it because I really love Cassandra Jean’s arts for TID, TMI, TDA, TLH, and Bane Chronicles too.
And another reason is…I write fanfictions. Therefore, this book is great for research purposes 😀
2. Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare
I have read these novellas earlier this year. I owned the eBook copy for the novellas, but as I mentioned before, because it is Shadowhunter-related, I have, no need to own the physical copy. So, tadaa~ I bought it.
3. What’s A Girl Gotta Do? by Holly Bourne
I’ve read the previous two books (Am I Normal Yet? and How Hard Can Love Be?) and I really loved them. Which is why, I bought this one too. I would’ve bought it earlier, but if I waited till my birthday, I get a discount. So there~ :3
4. …And A Happy New Year? by Holly Bourne
I bought this one from the same bookstore, but unlike the others, I bought this one at one of the outlets in my town instead of online. Because for some reason, the one online was listed as “Paperback” and the one sold at the outlet was hardback and sold at the same price…which was weird. I didn’t have the chance to email customer service, so I bought the one at the outlet instead. Better safe than sorry, right? Plus, hardcover!! And the cover is beautiful~ ❤
5. Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven
I’ve always loved reading books about mental illness or some disorders. In this book, one of the main character has a cognitive disorder called Prosopagnosia. I’ve only once read a story where someone had the same disorder (but it was a fanfiction), and it was great. So, I’m really looking forward to reading this book.
6. The Fall of Butterflies by Andrea Proter
I’ve been wanting to buy this book since it came out but I kept on buying other books first. This book has all the elements that I like in YA Contemporary so I am looking forward to reading this. The rating on Goodreads is only 3.4 / 5 stars though, but I’m hoping that it doesn’t disappoint me.
7. The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Just like The Fall of Butterflies, I’ve been wanting to buy this book since it came out, but I ended up prioritizing other books. And similar to the Fall of Butterflies, this book also has all the elements that I love in YA Contemporary. I am really looking forward to reading this.
So… That concludes my November/Birthday Book Haul. Is there any books that I’ve listed out that you’ve read and loved, or wanted to read? Also, isn’t it sad that all the books for my birthday book haul, I bought myself. For my birthday present. LOL
