Happy Thursday guys! This year I started using a couple reading tracker spreadsheets to track my books read. I also started using a Book Blogging spreadsheet. It has a tab dedicated to book hauls. I made a point to log every book I bought, and whew. I did not realize what a habit I had!
So in January alone, I bought 27 books for a total of $134.74. I did not realize I spent that much! And those are just books for ME! We also bought our DM the Critical Role graphic novel and I bought my kid some books.
I mostly bought ebooks. I only bought two physical and 6 audios. So lets jump in to what I bought!
- When I Was You by Minka Kent
- Thief River Falls by Brian Freeman
- An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
- The Center of the Universe by Ria Voros
- Delirium by Lauren Oliver
- The Cerulean by Amy Ewing
- You Too? by Janet Gurtler *preorder*
- The Sisterhood by AJ Grainger
- The Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller *preorder*
- The Time of my Life by Cecelia Ahern
- By Your Side by Kasie West
- Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian
- Don’t Read the Comments by Eric Smith *preorder*
- Pride by Ibi Zoboi
- Alex & Eliza by Melissa de la Cruz
- Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
- Snow, Glass, Apples by Neil Gaiman
- The Wives by Tarryn Fisher
- When Stars are Bright by Amber R. Duell
So for ebooks – three were preorders, and I got preorder incentives for Don’t Read the Comments and The Shadows Between Us! Thirteen were on sale for $2.99 or less. I bought 5 full price. I’ve also already read three of the ones I bought – Center of the Universe, Don’t Read the Comments, and The Wives.
- Chase Darkness With Me by Billy Jensen
- Evil Has a Name by Jim Clemente
- Helter Skelter by Vincent Bugliosi
- Get Well Soon by Jennifer Wright
- Human Errors by Nathan H. Lents
- The Sociopath Next Door by Martha Stout
Three of these I got with audible credits and the other three I got from the past daily deals sale! I’ve already finished Chase Darkness With Me and Evil has a name. I’m currently listening to Human Errors. I have found this month that I really love non-fic audios – especially true crime!
These two I bought last weekend at Books-A-Million. I don’t really read physicals, but I want to get back into them! I have already read Language of Thorns, but I’ve been wanting my own copy! The artwork on the sides of the stories is amazing. I got Grave Mercy because I’ve been into female assassins lately and I’m always looking for inspo for my dnd character!
Have you read any of these? What were your thoughts? What are your January hauls looking like? Let me know in the comments below!
Until next time…
