June Book Haul | 2020

Good morning everyone. I hope you’re all doing well. Today I’m going to be talking about the 9 manga and 4 books that I ended up getting. I don’t currently have the second two books, but I got them in June and I think they’ll be here before June is over.

That being said, I also got Owlcrate that should be here Monday. So let me know if you want me to do an unboxing on my YouTube for that.

I got the manga from Amazon and the other books from Uncle Bobbie’s Coffee and Books shop through BookShop.org

I’m trying to get away from using Amazon as much so I can support indie bookstores more.

I originally made a video to go along with this but I ended up scrapping it. I’m in a funk where I’m not liking anything I’m creating. But that’s why the background for the graphic below is a thumbnail photo.

Let’s just get right into this.

January and NewYearsathon TBR | 2020

Good morning everyone and happy new year! I hope that this year has been good to you so far. Today we’re going to kick off 2020 with my TBR. These are all the books I plan on reading in January, but I know I won’t get to all of them so I’ll have to push some to February.

So, first let’s get into the arcs I have to read because those are the most important for me to get to.

Advance Review Copies

This one takes place in the same town as A Family By Christmas (which I read and reviewed when that came out), but it follows another character. We met Cleo in book 1 and now we follow her romance with the guy who is supposed to be deciding whether the bookshop she works at is worth the risk of buying.

I wasn’t the biggest fan of the first book, but that wasn’t because of the writing or the romance necessarily. One of the characters was a widow and those stories are ones that never really appeal to me. So, I’m interested in giving Viv Royce another shot and hopefully enjoying this story a lot more!

Another sequel to another book I read and reviewed at release. I’m really excited for this one because I really enjoyed the first book, The Best Friend Problem. In that book, the main character lives with 2 roommates and this book follows one of them. Except it takes place while they are planning the first book’s character’s wedding! After hooking up with someone in a wedding party and almost ruining a wedding before, Lilly vowed that she wouldn’t let it happen again. So she thinks nothing of a one night stand she has with someone she met in a hotel. Until that someone ends up being the best man at her best friend’s wedding.

I’m not going to get into what each of these is about, but I have to read them all before the release of the 6th book, Just Friends. Keep an eye out January 8th for the cover reveal post of Just Friends!

Romanceopoly

So, I rolled a 5 and a 1 so. counting 6 places on the Romanceopoly board lands me on Flirts Corner which is to read a contemporary romance with a nerdy hero or heroine. I’m going to be counting this book because the heroine works at a bookstore, so I’m assuming she’s nerdy. If I don’t feel she is “nerdy” enough, then I’m sure one of the many romances I plan on reading this month have a nerdy hero/heroine.

Boxed Up Books

So, if you saw my reading goals for 2020, you know that I decided to fill up a few book boxes with books that I needed to get to. Every other month, I’ll unbox one of the boxes and then use the two months to read those books.

For January and February, these are the books I unboxed!

I’m excited for all of these, but since I’m doing three readathons in January, I don’t know how soon I’ll be able to get to these.

So to finish off this TBR, let’s talk about the books I plan to read for NewYearsathon.

NewYearsathon

These are the books I plan on reading. Check out my Instagram post by clicking here to see what challenges they are going for.

So thatt’s it for this one! I’m sorry it’s going up so late. I’ll have another post going up today (hopefully) for you all! So look forward to it.

See you all soon! Bye!

Last Book Haul of 2019 (Aka I Went Overboard Again)

Hello everyone! I hope you all have had a wonderful year and I’m so sad it’s coming to an end already. It seems like every year is going by quicker and quicker. But that just means a new start and new goals!

But until then, let’s discuss the last books I got in December. This will include my Owlcrate, Book of the Month, Christmas gifts, and my Black Friday Book Outlet order. Now, I don’t have photos of all of these books so some are going to just be listed and I’m sorry for that! I didn’t really prep ahead of time.

Let start with OwlCrate. I did post my unboxing and you can view it here. But the book that came with the Owlcrate was…

Now, I know nothing about this book but I know that a lot of people really like this author so I’m interested in trying them out.

I ended up canceling my BotM after this month, so this was my last choice!

I chose One Day in December by Josie Silver. I don’t know anything about this one either. But I was planning on canceling and I’ve seen this one around so I just chose this.

Time for some Christmas gifts!

I got all of these gifts from amazing some friends I have! I forgot to iclude For Everyone by Jason. Reynolds because it was in my bag when I took this picture. Make sure to follow everyone I linked because they deserve the world and this is the most I can provide ❤

Anyway, thanks for joining me and I’ll see you all soon with my wrap up that I will hopefully get up soon!
