July is always a big month for books because three days of YALC is enough to ensure I come home with a suitcase full of books. And guys. This is definitely my biggest haul of 2018, but it might also be my biggest book haul…ever?
I’ve counted them up and in total, I hauled 19 books in July. 19. N i n e t e e n.
13 of those were from YALC and 6 were from publishers. Now, I know you may be calling me a lightweight and preparing to close this tab and closing this tab, but honestly 19 books is a lot for me. Normally, I buy one or two books at a time, to avoid making my TBR even more unwieldy. Even three or four is quite a substantial haul for me, so to finish the month with 19 new books is unheard of (and my book shelves are freaking out because there is no space).
Of the 13 books I picked up at YALC this year, the ones I bought were:
Others were ARCs I won, and free books I was given:
I was also lucky enough to be sent a few books by publishers during July, including one of my most anticipated releases of the year, Convenience Store Woman. Another book I received was Spinning Silver (not pictured) and Troika books sent me four of their recent releases.
Last year, I made the mistake of not jumping into my ARCs straight after YALC, and ended up not having read all of them by time their release dates came around. This year, I’m trying my best to avoid doing the same thing again, so I’ve already read three of the books in this haul, and am half way through a fourth.
Which books did you get in July? Did you pick up any books at YALC, if you went?
