Hi! As promised, I’m here today to share with you my July book haul, which obviously includes my shiny new The Mortal Instruments books, with their amazing new covers (the last books just got in today).
Let’s start with The Mortal Instruments, which by the way, I have obviously already read some time ago…
But they are so damn beautiful… look at their spines…
Right?! Right? Gorgeous!
Other series that I got my hands on this month was the Shatter Me trilogy. I had been trying to get them for a while now, but the bookstore usually just had 2 of the 3 books, and I wanted to buy them all at the same time, to make sure their sizes were the same. A couple of weeks ago I went to the bookstore to pick up another book, and there they were, so, obviously, they came home with me. Shatter Me, Unravel Me and Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi.
As I had mention before on a Top Ten Tuesday post, I got Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, Magisterium: The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, Hollow City by Ransom Riggs, The Princess Bride by William Goldman, Charmed: The Power of Three by Eliza Willard and Constance M. Burge, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan and The Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer.

My More Happy Than Not book by Adam Silvera finally arrived – on the day that I had to buy The Shatter Me series…
And, I got The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas, the novellas from The Throne of Glass series.
Finally, I bought The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy: A Handbook for Girl Geeks by Sam Maggs, with illustrations by Kelly Bastow.
And that’s it, 21 books, next month will be a light-to-nonexistent book haul…

You already know that I bought Armada today and guess what, I bought Ready Player One along with it!
I have so many of the books you bought 🙂 Dash & Lily, Nick & Norah, the Shatter Me Series, The Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children Series, .. can’t wait to hear your opinion of them all!
(I kind of assumed that you had bought or already had Ready Player One) 😀
I have to tell you, some of these books I bought because you talked so well of them 😛 (so, this is all your fault!) 😀
Oh man, now I feel a little bad. My mind is freaking out and screaming WHAT IF SHE DOESN’T LIKE THEM?
lol, i was kidding (sort of), worry not, so far, all the books you “recommended”, I’ve enjoyed, so I think we’re good
Yeah, we seem to have very similar tastes. I’m cautiously optimistic that you’re going to like those books too!
😉 I think I will, I will read the shatter me trilogy next month for sure, and I want to read more happy than not and ready player one as well 😀
I’m going to read Ready Player One after I finish my current book “Geek Girl”. I’ve heard great things about More Happy Than Not!
yes, I’ve heard them too. Becky Albertalli (author of Simon vs the homo sapiens agenda) spends her time on twitter praising the book, so it must be good.
I’m not gonna lie, I liked the previous covers of TMI better. The new ones were just kind of plain for me?? But yeah they’re still gorgeous, especially those spines 😍 [squeals]
actually, they look plain but they have intricate art work on them, which is really gorgeous, and each has important stuff about the content (https://tinyobsessions.wordpress.com/2015/07/23/the-mortal-instruments-uk-covers/city_of_bones/#main)
but hey, I love the original ones too, I own them, lol 😀
All the books look so great!!!!! I’ve been wanting to get to Ready Player One and the Peculiar Children series can’t wait to here what you think of them 🙂 Great Haul!!
thank you. I’m really excited for Ready Player One, but I’m conflicted about Peculiar Children… we’ll see… 😉
Aren’t they making it into a movie? (Or already have maybe?) I want to read it before the movies released
They are. I want to read it before that as well
WoW! This one looks like an Epic haul 🙂
Love those new covers of TMI and of course, the shatter me trilogy too. 😀
The Mortal Instruments books are gorgeous!
😀 I’m totally in love with them 😀
Mortal Instuments Covers are a-w-e-s-o-m-e! It’s my first time seeing them, are they new editions?
they are, they came out this month, this is the UK version, the US covers are also new but different from these ones (these are my babies now, I love them)
Lucky you then! Enjoy all of your books! ❤
thank you 🙂
I tend to prefer the original covers on any book. They always seem more eye-catching.
Those TMI covers are AMAZING.
thank you 😀
THAT IS ONE AMAZING BOOKHAUL! Are you kidding me?! TMI LOOKS SOOO BEAUTIFUL!! I NEED. Can’t wait for you to read that! Also, Shatter Me!!!! One of my fav series ever!!!! Hope you like it! And we must fangirl once you’ve read it ❤
Thank u so much!!! I can’t wait to read them, shatter me is close on my tbr 😉
YAY! Please do tell me what you think once you’ve read it cause WARNER ❤
I will 😉
Nice! There’s a few of these I’m looking forward to read and also bought recently. I’m still on the fence for Hollow City but I’m pretty excited to start reading Ready Player One. 🙂 Can’t wait to read your reviews for these books!
I really want to read Ready Player One as well, though I’m not sure if I’ll be able to fit it in this month 😦
Looking forward your opinion on it
I haven’t gotten around to it yet either. I just started Revenge of Seven in the Lorien Legacies series. Then I have to get back to Jane Austen..haha! I took a really long break from my Classics project. haha!
understandably, I read 2 from Jane Austen and I felt I needed a break 🙂 they’re not exactly easy reads (at least for me)
They aren’t. Especially when I read a lot of YA novels now. Haha!
exactly 🙂 how many classics do you have left?
My initial goal was Jane Austen so I’m halfway through: Emma, Persuasion and Northanger Abbey. I do want to go Moby Dick a go before In the Heart of the Sea opens in theatres in December. Not sure I’ll be able to though…
wow, that’s a lot of classics to go through… good luck 😀
