Book Hauls

June 2020 Book Haul

Salutations Chapterlings! Hell has frozen over because I’m finally bringing a book haul after what seems like ages! Plus, the sunflowers are back to make posts a little bit brighter this summer. Now, these aren’t all the books. I’m still waiting on a few books to come in the mail. So I might loop those in with my July book haul (if I do a July book haul). However, I have received some amazing books and I have to shout-out a bunch of amazing people because some of these books wouldn’t have come into my possession without their help. So a huge thank you to Stephen Graham Jones, Taylor, Eliza, Michelle, Dani & Erin (who were champions for the all of us Indigenous book dragons), Isabella at thefeministbookworm, Donna from Momsbookcollection, and last but not least, my spouse! Make sure you go check all of these amazing people out. Without out them, some of these books wouldn’t have been possible and wouldn’t be on this list. I’m truly grateful and a feel very blessed to have met so many incredible people and have so many wonderful people in my corner who support me. So if they’re seeing this, thank you and I love you, so so much!

Now that I got emotional, I have to address something very serious before getting into the haul. It’s more of an announcement. Those who have been following me for a while probably know that my last book haul was from Book Outlet. I already made public statements on all my other social medias when everything had come to light, but this is me making an official announcement on my blog. I will no longer be doing any hauls from Book Outlet. I will not be supporting them any further. I have since unsubscribed from their mailing list and blocked their email. I refuse to support companies who choose to make statements and handle things the way they did. If you don’t know what happened, just go to Twitter and look everything up. I don’t want to allow anymore of them into my space than what I already have.

On that note, here is the haul. There’s a lot of amazing books by some amazing authors here and I hope that all of you take the time to look into the authors, pre-order some of these from your local bookstores, and just look into the books themselves. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

Book Hauls

BookOutlet Haul | Biggest Haul Yet!

Salutations friends! It feels like it has been a minute since I did a haul of this size. Normally, I try to avoid doing big hauls. However, this has been in the works for a hot minute and I blame all the sales BookOutlet has had over past couple of months. Nonetheless, I’m so excited to finally bring this haul to my blog and even more excited to show all of you! Mostly, I’m excited due to the fact that some of these are hopefully going to put towards some readathons that are coming up in the future.

Book Hauls

March 2020 Book Haul

Salutations Chapterlings! I’m finally getting my March Book Haul up! Granted, there are a few pieces missing from this haul, but that’s okay! March was an intense month in so many ways and before this haul really starts, I see you and I love you. Things are challenging for so many of us and I hope you all are staying as safe and as healthy as you can! March was a whole lot of something and many of (including myself) are still trying to make sense of it all. So know that your feelings are valid, I see you and understand, and I love you.

March was a month full of surprises though! One of those surprises being that fact that I bought a bunch of e-books. I’m still shocked that I got so many because I not an e-book reader. The only time I read an e-book is for an e-arc I get approved for. Most surprising thing to happen in March and I’m really excited to read these e-books! So, I mentioned that there are a few pieces missing. This is due to them running late or showing up at the end of March and not having enough time to truly get them looped in with this haul. So keep your eyes peeled for my April book haul because there’s a chance those missing pieces will appear in April. On that note, I think I’ve held this up enough so let’s enjoy the haul!

Book Hauls

January 2020 Book Haul

Salutation readers! Will there ever be a time where I post a book haul before that month ends? Probably not. Am I still going to keep posting hauls, though? Absolutely! Who doesn’t love a good book haul? I know book hauls are one of my favorite things to read about and watch. It helps get a better idea of what everyone is interested in or even books I’ve never heard about. However, I do apologize that this is coming so late. Actually, I was planning on posting this at the end of January. The only problem with my plans was never anticipating an upper respiratory infection. So the end of January was a bit of a wild time. There was a lot of coughing and a lot of sleeping. So much sleeping. But I’m here now! And before I jump into my January haul, I want to acknowledge that I am very privileged to be able to get Book of the Month because as of right now they only ship in the states. So I apologize to anyone who is international and has an interest in BOTM. Hopefully they will start shipping internationally soon or get an office set up internationally so they can ship to anyone who is international. With all that being said, onward to the haul of books!

Salutations friends! We’re finally in the new year and I can finally show you all the wonderful book blessings I received during the holiday season! I know, I know… this post is a bit late, but I was waiting on one book to arrive book the mail system was backed up immensely. To be honest, I almost did make this post without that book, but it was a very special book sent by an amazing friend so I couldn’t bring myself to do it without it. Anyway, this list is going to be super short, sweet, and to the point. So I hope you all enjoy this December book haul!

Book Outlet Haul

It feels like a super hot minute since I bought anything from BookOutlet! Well…actually…this haul should have been posted back in June, but the package didn’t officially arrive until the beginning of July. And I did just recently order another book from BookOutlet… So here we are…again! At this point I’m surprised no one has said, “Malli…you have an addiction and this is your intervention meeting.” Is anyone really surprised by my actions anymore, I don’t think so. Anyway, I have a few new books that I recently got from BookOutlet that I want to share with all of you. I did do an unboxing back at the beginning of July on my Instagram, but now we’re in the middle of July and it’s time that I share with all of you the books that have fallen into my lap. So without any further delays or ramblings, here are the books I recently hauled from BookOutlet and other places where you can locate these books!

Book Hauls

First Ever Book Outlet Haul!

I can’t believe I have been so fortunate to finally have my first ever BookOutlet. After so many wonderful people talked about their hauls, the amazing discounts, and the wonderful persuasion by some amazing ladies, I finally went and made my first purchase! While this may not be a big deal to many, this was a HUGE deal for me. I have been burned in the past buying discounted books and I was really nervous to even place this order. But thankfully I had some amazing, encouraging, and loving people in my corner who convinced me otherwise. Now I get to share all the incredible books I got with all of you! So sit back, relax and let me show you everything I got!

Jackaby by William Ritter| Amazon|GoodReads|Barnes&Noble|Thrift Books|Book Depository
Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman| Amazon|GoodReads|Barnes&Noble|Thrift Books| Book Depository
Night of Cake and Puppets by Laini Taylor| Amazon|GoodReads|Barnes&Noble|Thrift Books|Book Depository

Tiger’s Destiny by Colleen Houck| Amazon|GoodReads|Barnes&Noble|Thrift Books|Book Depository

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo| Amazon|GoodReads|Barnes&Noble|Thrift Books|Book Depository
Six of Crows Duology Box Set| Amazon|GoodReads|Barnes&Noble|Thrift Books|Book Depository

Okay, Chapterlings! That wraps it up for my first Book Outlet Haul! I’m very thankful and very privileged to be able to order from Book Outlet and that not everyone can order from their site. I’m so blessed that this opportunity even came to happen. I’m very thankful. And before I go, I want to shout-out the wonderful ladies who made this haul even possible. A big thank you to the amazing and wonderful Julith! She just started her blog too, so please go give her some love! But without her advertising for the exclusive Kingdom of Ash copies Book Outlet had available, I probably would have never even went to the site. And not only did she advertise for Kingdom of Ash, but she also advertised for the Six of Crows boxed set! And I couldn’t be more grateful because without seeing those advertisements by her, I would have never snagged one of the box sets! That brings me to my fellow Bookstababe and an amazing lady named Emily! A huge thank you to her because without her constantly boosting the Six of Crows duology, I probably would have never even considered snagging the box set in the first place. But she practically swears by this duology and I don’t know a more lovely human to put my faith in. That just leaves the most magical person I know left! A very special thank you to Melanie or meltotheany! She has talked about Blanca & Roja a few times, from how long I have been following her, and when I saw it on Book Outlet, it was an instant click. If it weren’t for her and her amazing reviews and her boosting books that she absolutely loves, I probably would have never snagged a copy of this book. These ladies are all wonderful and genuinely beautiful souls in the book community. I’m very thankful to be able to interact with them, have conversations with them, and just watch their incredible selves bloom and grow. Please check them out because each lady is so unique in their own way and just a blessing in the book community! That’s it! Thank you all so much to those who encouraged me to buy from Book Outlet and thank you all for reading this book haul! I hope your May is filled with wonderful and amazing books in your own haul! As always, I love you and I’ll see you next time! ❤️
