{Book Haul} October 2018



Hey, guys!

      This past month has been an absolute whirlwind. I've read much more than I did in September and I've still managed to acquire an obscene amount of books. 

      This month I've done so much. I've continued on with college, I've written so many papers, and created a new story idea that I'm so freaking excited to work with. 

      I've also....wait for it....gone to a Sarah J. Maas tour event. YES! It was sooo freaking great. Expect a blog post about it soon! I can't wait to tell you all about it. I've been compiling notes and lists and things, so it should be a long'un. Stay tuned! 

      This month was a fantastic month for releases. The final installment in the Throne of Glass series came out: Kingdom of Ash! I'm currently reading it, so stay tuned for a review and my final thoughts! Spoiler alert! I love it!

      This month I've acquired 17 books. I've arranged them into different categories depending on how I got them. A huge shout out to my friends for fueling my book addiction. You guys are seriously the best. 

Here are the books I purchased, received, and preordered*!
