That being said, I've got quite a lot of books to show you in this haul, so I'm going out on a high note!
I wouldn't have bought a book like 'Three Men and a Maybe', but it was a free eBook to celebrate the New Year, and it sounded kind of cute! The other three books were all 99p on the Kindle daily deal, and I've been excited about reading all of them: hopefully I'll get around to them soon.
Library book sale:
First of all: how hard are gold books to photograph?! The book sat one from the top is actually 'The Moth', but it was impossible to make the title visible. I'm particularly proud of the fact that I managed to find an unused 'Wreck This Journal' in a charity shop: it's not going to be unused for long!
I actually bought all of these books at the end of November, but because I was away for a weekend of concerts they've had to go in this month's haul. These are all ARCs, and I'm so excited to have found some of them: particularly 'And I Darken' and 'What's A Girl Gotta Do?', both books I've been dying to get my hands on.
These three books came from my wonderful Secret Santas: 'Illuminae' from #SundayYASS participant Sim, and the other three through The Broke The Bookish's annual Secret Santa, sent to me by the wonderful Megan.
My wonderful boyfriend got me 'The Unbelievable Gwenpool', which I've been looking at getting for MONTHS, while my mummy bought me all of the rest of the books. She really needs to stop encouraging my book buying habits! Looking forward to tucking in to the third volume of 'Lumberjanes' ASAP.
It was impossible to take an attractive photo of the contents of Owlcrate this month: using natural light for photos has its downsides! I was very excited to receive 'Of Fire and Stars', but I've heard a lot of negative reviews about it since, which is a little disheartening after all of the hype leading up to its release.
The most exciting books that I acquired in December are these two review copies. I'm involved in the blog tours for 'The Dry' (January 12th) and 'Relativity' (January 17th) and I can't wait to share my feelings on both of these books with you.
A huge thank you to Clara and Grace at Little, Brown, for allowing me to participate in these tours!
And that's it! For my last book haul ever, I gained an extra 57 books: hopefully by refusing to haul in future I'll also refuse to buy!
