Massive August Book Haul

I purchased and received a lot of books in August.  I decided not to take pictures of everything because there are so many, but wanted to share what I got.

I do have some pictures that I took to share.  For the rest, I’ll use the goodreads cover photos.


My first stack.  Want, Miles Morales, and A Fiece & Subtle Poison were purchased at Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville, IL.  Miles Morales is signed.  The Love Interest, Frostblood, Lost in a Book, and In the Afterlight were purchased at Half Price Books.


How to Disappear was pre-ordered from Barnes & Noble.  The author sent the bookmarks and signed book plate.


The Hearts We Sold was from OwlCrate (August box).


Little Monsters and Flame In The Mist were ordered from Books of Wonder.  Both books are signed by the author.


The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts & The Girl Who Saved Ghosts were both sent to me by the author for review.  Both books are signed and KC Tansley sent all kinds of cool little extras.


Daughter of the Burning City was the FairyLoot book (for July).  I received it the beginning of August.


Now I Rise, And I Darken, and On the Road were purchased from Book Depository.

I think that’s all I have pictures for.  The rest will just be cover photos.

Changes in Latitudes, Bad Romance, and Because You Love To Hate Me were purchased from Barnes & Noble.

I won Keeping the Beat from Goodreads.  These Things I’ve Done (signed) showed up here, so I must have won it from a giveaway somewhere.  Maybe from Epic Reads?

The rest of these are digital books.

They Both Die At The End, Before She Ignites, The Grave Keepers, and One Dark Throne were all approved on Edelweiss+.

This Darkness Mine, Dare Mighty Things, Kat and Meg Conquer the World, and An Enchantment of Ravens were all approved on Edelweiss+.

American Panda and The Hanging Girl were approved on Edelweiss+.  Warcross and A Semi-Definitive List Of Worst Nightmares were “download now” on Edelweiss+.

The Third Kiss, Black Bird of the Gallows, and 27 Hours were approved from Entangled or received directly from the authors for blog posts.  Boomerang Boyfriend was approved on Netgalley.

Diary of a Teenage Jewel Thief, A Taxonomy of Love, The Fire Queen, and Shoot the Moon were all approved on Netgalley.

I think that is everything.  I may be missing a book or two.  It was hard to keep track of everything this month.  Obviously joining Edelweiss+ got me a lot more books than I would normally have in one month.

I also pre-ordered some books and made another B&N purchase, but those will all arrive in September.  So that book haul will be posted in about a month or so.

I’ve only read 6 of these so far and I’m reading the 7th right now. I’m not sure when I’ll get to all of them, but hopefully will get through at least 5 or 6 of these next month.  (I’ll never catch up because I keep getting more.)

My name is Kristi and I review books and mod on TBR and Beyond on Facebook. I love to travel and go to concerts. I've been married for over 20 years. I listen to a lot of pop punk. Otherwise, I'm pretty boring. We do have four grandchildren now and try to see them monthly since they don't live close. I read mostly YA and adult mystery/thrillers. I also read a lot of middle grade and some adult romance. You can also find me on facebook, twitter, and instagram (don't post often).

  1. Awesome! I love many books you have. I’m bumped for missing out on the download now for Warcross. I have some of the same titles as you on Edelweiss. We could do a buddy read on They Both Die at the End if you are interested 🙂

  2. So many amazing titles! Bad Romance was a tough read due to the content but I thought it was written really well. I am SUPER HYPED up to read Daughter of the Burning City, I also hauled it this mth & when I flipped through the pages & saw all of the illustrations I had stars in my eyes lol. Someone advised me to save Hearts we Sold for Valentines Day as a dark read for the holiday haha! I hope you enjoy all of your new books, happy reading! 🙂
