Hauling All The Books

I have an obsession with watching book hauls on youtube. They are my crack cocaine. So I thought I’d do one myself. Now bare with me, because I’m not totally sure how to do this in text form. This book haul consists of purchases from January-March.




This was my very first order from Book Depository! I kinda lost the plot and just went nuts.  At this point I’ve already read most of these. You guys already know my obsession with The Selection series. 

  • Red Rising by Pierce Brown was recommended vehemently to me by a coworker, and I have seen it all over the book sphere so I thought I’d at least try number 1 in the series. Hoping to get to this one next month.
  • Okay so The Isle of the Lost. I have seen occasional commercials on the Disney Channel for the movies and the tv show. The idea of a book about the kids of the Disney villains? I was hooked. But then I started one. These are so hardcore not for me. Couldn’t get to 100 pages on the first one. 
  • Between Shades of Gray was recommended to me by Samantha and Anna and HOLY CRAP THE FEELS. It was such an amazing story. I had no idea these events even took place. So eye opening. 
  • Furthermore has a beautiful cover and is a very lyrical and magical fairytale like story… but I didn’t love it. I know, unpopular opinion but….. maybe middle grade isn’t for me. 

These are my book of the month selections as well as three I picked up from Target. I have been wanting to read Brain on Fire for a while. A Study in Charlotte and The End of Oz were both signed first editions. :)

Amazon order! Again… I went a little crazy again.

  • You Don’t Know My Name has been receiving a lot of buzz around the book community. I don’t know a ton about it, but I do know it’s a YA spy novel. Um… yes please!
  • I have been longing to try Colleen Hoover. I’m not a big contemporary gal but I want to expand. I picked two at random and ended up with Too Late and Ugly Love. I know Ugly Love has a RN in it so that’s cool!
  • Six of Crow duology because… yeah. 
  • The two XFiles novels because I’m a big nerd and never want it to end. 
  • The Valiant is supposed to be so amazing. I can’t want to get started. Female gladiators sounds so fantastic.
  • And the first three in the Falling Kingdoms series! Samantha tells me they are amazing and I’ve heard they are like a YA Game of Thrones and I obsessed over those books.
  • Percy Jackson. I’ve never read them! I know, I know!


So that’s it… for now. How did this work as a Blog Haul?! Let me know and let me know if you have read any of these and which is your favorite. See ya!

    Furthermore is on my list! Looking forward to it. I am currently reading Being a Witch and Other Things I Didn’t Ask For by Sara Pascoe. It’s fantastic, a great find quite by accident. But sometimes with hauls like these you find diamonds in the rough! sarapascoe.com is her site for info on her book. She really is a fun author.

      Furthermore didn’t really shake me to the core or anything, but the writing was very lovely! And thanks for the recommendation! I’ll be sure to check her out!

  2. I hope you like the Percy Jackson series! I still have to finish it but I’ve loved it so far :)

      I marathon read the series in a few days and OMG IT WAS AMAZING!!! Keep going! They are such good books!

  3. OH MY GOODNESS, HAULS ARE MY JAM. I so loved reading this post!

    Oooh, I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts on SoC. I’m definitely a black sheep when it comes to that series. I’m super excited to read Furthermore, although I am a huge fan of MG. Hopefully I’ll enjoy it!

      AHH THANKS ELLIE! If you are the only person to get joy out of this, it will be enough! I am so excited and apprehensive about SoC because I feel like everyone LOVES it and I MUST love it, too. EEEEK. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Furthermore. It is truly a beautifully written story!
