August book haul

Because I've been so busy finishing my Reading festival review, I almost completely forgot to post my book haul! Luckily I didn't buy too many books in August, so it's just going to be a short post today.

This month I bought two eBooks: Holly Bourne's 'What's A Girl Gotta Do?' and Colleen Hoover's 'November 9'. I LOVED the first book in the Spinster Club series, so I had to buy the third one the day it was released, and I've heard amazing things about Colleen's writing. Hopefully I've picked a good book to start with!

Library book sale:
In the library book sale this month, I bought two classics, two fairy tale retellings and two novels by Susan Hill: it's been a very varied month! I'm extremely excited to have finally gotten myself a copy of 'Sweetly'. 

This might have been my favourite Owlcrate so far. I've been highly anticipating 'P.S. I Like You', which sounds like a really adorable and fun contemporary, but to get that in the same box as an adult colouring book AND an 'Eleanor and Park' necklace?! Just too cute.

I'm going to have to post a few pictures of what came in the Illumicrate box this month, because there was just so much of it!
A cute postcard of 'Unboxed' by Non Pratt, a chapter sampler from the sequel to 'An Ember in the Ashes', some Harry Potter swag and a teabag!

Two Leigh Bardugo colouring art cards!


And two books. TWO! If you're looking for value for your money, I'd highly recommend getting yourself an Illumicrate subscription: I don't know how Daphne does it, because she curates the best boxes around and they're such a good price.
I hadn't heard of 'Nevernight' until it came in the box, but I was already excited for 'The Graces' (which was released in the Illumicrate box a month before street date!). 

Count with me... I only bought 13 books in August! I know I was really busy with concerts for the last two weeks, so I didn't have much opportunity to book shop, but I'm quite proud of myself. 
But will I buy more or less books in September? Find out in a couple of weeks.
