June & July Book Haul: “Stacking The Shelves” Edition

And with the beginning of August, summer slowly comes to an end. I’ll be sad to see the sunny days go, but I’m starting to get in the mood for fall. I acquired quite a lot of books over the past couple of months. I don’t even know if I’m on a book ban or not anymore. I have continued to read and purge books from my collection though. It’s finally starting to make a big difference. I’m caught up with review copies, ARCs, and most importantly my Netgalley slate is clean and I’m ready to start requesting books again! But I won’t go overboard like last time because that is too much to handle.

Enough rambling, onto the book haul!


Heroine Complex by Sarah Kuhn – I’ve seen a lot of review that have had me intrigued about this book. Hopefully it lives up to the hype.

Mambo in Chinatown by Jean Kwok

A Conjuring of Light (Shades of Magic) by V.E. Schwab – Found this a Barnes & Noble for 50% off! I own the whole series, now it’s time to binge read them all.

Lair of Dreams (Diviners #2) by Libba Bray

NW by Zadie Smith – Heard so many things about Zadie’s works so I’m trying to collect her books and read them.

Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson – I bought it for a future re-read since I loved it so much!

My Lady Jane by Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand, and Jodi Meadows – I love historical fiction so I couldn’t resist picking this one up.

Across a Green Ocean by Wendy Lee

The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig – Book Outlet was having a sale and I wanted my own copy. Voila!

Marina by Carlos Ruiz Zafón – I was really drawn to the synopsis of this one. Hopefully it’s as good as it sounds!

Mortal Heart (His Fair Assassin #3) by Robin LaFevers – I loved this series so much so I’m starting to collect them since I initially borrowed them from my library. Plus there is supposed to be a book 4! *squeals with joy*

These books were buys from Detroit’s Festival of Books! Lots of cool indie books and used books to buy there!

Under The Irish Moon by Lisa Marbly-Warir

Between The Lines by Claudia Whitsitt

Letters To Cora by Colleen Nye

Sea of Dreams by D.A Henneman 

In July, I got to go to a lovely book talk for award-winning author Beverly Jenkins! I bought a copy of Topaz and Deadly Sexy (which is currently having a campaign for a movie adaptation).


The Last Time I Saw Mother by Arlene J. Chai – My friend Stephanie at Life’s A Cup of Tea was in the process up cleaning up her book collection when I visited her. She gave this book to me as she enjoyed it herself. It sounds good!

Saints & Misfits by S.K. Ali – I won a giveaway for this book from Writer’s Block Party back in June! I am so excited to read this book!

ARCs/Review Copies

The Story of Lizzy and Darcy by Grace Watson – A lovely retelling of Pride & Prejudice! See my review here.

  1. That’s a huge haul. I’d like to get myself a Victoria Schwab book too. I’ve listened to her speak on a couple writing podcasts and like what she’s said about writing and the concepts she explores in her work.

    1. Lol. I just can’t stop buying books it’s so hard! I’ve heard a lot of good thing about Schwab’s world building and fantasy stories. They sound amazing!
