October 2016 Book Haul Revisit

Hey everyone! Welcome back and if you’re new, I’m Amanda from A Court of Books and Love.

Today I have my October 2017 Book Haul Revisit.

I plan on doing this a month before the year mark for each haul. Then, if I have any books to read, I’ll add them to my TBR and see what I get to. I will try to read all of my leftover books but it’s going to be rough right now. It’s only been a year and my hauls end up getting fairly large closer to the end of the year. Then continue through until last month. But I’ll try! I won’t be unhauling any books that I haven’t read (unless I know I won’t get around to it) but it’ll still be interesting to see how I’ve done!

Let’s just get into this!


Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

IMG_0608

I technically got this is Sept 2016 but I’m going to count it because this is the only book I did get in Sept.

I have read this. I loved it. And I’m going to reread it this month so I can get into Hunting Prince Dracula.

Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children Trilogy by Ransom Riggs

51jziadImDL._SY398_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

I have read all three of these and I did not enjoy them very much. So I’m going to unhaul them.

Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

IMG_0651

I tried reading this book twice. I couldn’t get through it either time. So I’m going to unhaul this book also.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkins

11408650.jpg

I did read this and I loved it. I probably won’t be continuing with the series, though. I’ve heard pretty bad things about the next two books so I don’t want to read them and ruin the first for me. I’m going to keep this book just because I did love it!

My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga

18336965.jpg

Read and loved. Keeping. That’s about it.

Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

5886881.jpg

I read this. And, you guessed it, loved it. I would like to read some more Gillian Flynn at some point but I don’t have any of her books and currently I’m on a book buying ban so I won’t be able to anytime soon.

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

18189606.jpg

I loved this book so much and I was looking forward to reading more from Morgan Matson but ugh. I started a couple and didn’t enjoy one of them. I’m going to finish those books but I don’t know when. Keeping Since You’ve Been Gone, though.


I hope you enjoyed this! Let me know your thoughts on any of these books! I’ll see you guys in the next post/video!

Happy Reading! Bye!

Book Haul Revisit: December 2016

I’m going to warn you guys now, this is going to be my last one for a little while. I may end wait until it’s 9 months after each haul. Right now it’s 7 months. So in other words, I may wait 2 months and do another revisit of October 2016. I know you have all seen it before but in 2 months, I can get through more books and I may even look into unhauling some of the books that I haven’t read or haven’t liked. We’ll see.

Let me know what you would like for me to do. I want to start back at October again, definitely. You’ll see here that there are a TON of books that I haven’t read. But I could also just start back at October next month. Just let me know what you guys would like.

Let’s just get into this.


The Selection Series by Kiera Cass

IMG_3886

I have read… none of these. Yay. Starting off strong.

The Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead

IMG_0665

I have read one of these and I’m going to be reading Frostbite this month.

The Shadow and Bone Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo

6176674928_img_0590

This used to be known as the Grisha Trilogy but I guess it’s been changed. I’ve read Shadow and Bone and plan on reading Siege and Storm this month.

The Giver Quartet by Lois Lowry

IMG_0942.JPG

I’ve read The Giver, Gathering Blue, and Messenger. I started reading Son to my son but he wasn’t having it so I put it down for now. I’ll probably go back to it then return back to Percy Jackson.

Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst

IMG_0654

I have not read this yet but I plan on reading this book this month.

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

IMG_0951.JPG

I haven’t read this yet. I did start the Mortal Instruments series, but I did not like it. At all. So I’m not going to finish that, but I will try The Infernal Devices.

Kiss of Deception by Mary E Pearson

IMG_0950

I haven’t read this book yet either. I plan on getting to it after I get the entire series (trilogy?).

The Outsiders by SE Hinton

IMG_0949

I have read this book and I adored it. Highly recommend.

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

IMG_0653

I haven’t read this book yet either. But I’ll get to it.


So, now let’s summarize and cry.

Total Books: 22

Books Read: 6

Book To Read: 16

So, there’s that. That’s a lot of books I need to read. And there’s even more that I need to read from January. When I start back from October, I’ll keep a monthly tally. And I’ll summarize each previous month. So that each month we can figure out how I did after last month’s revisit and keep track of how many books I have to read.


Happy Reading!

Bookworm Mondays: March Book Haul

I ended up making a Book Outlet order while they had the sale going on for 15% off in addition to free shipping. I ended up getting about 15 books from there. Almost all were to go toward my reading challenges. But, let’s just get into it!

I apologize that this post won’t be linked at all. I got busy last week between work and reading. I didn’t get to do this post ahead of time. I will be working on Wednesdays today or tomorrow. Again, I apologize.

tumblr_o18z6zDWHV1t6k27lo1_r1_1280.gif
But, before I get into that, I want to mention the book I got in the March OwlCrate. We ended up getting Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller. I hadn’t heard of this book before getting it but since then, I’ve learned a bit more about it. I like to go into books mostly blind so I’m not spoiling anything so I won’t give too many summaries about what these books are about.


In the Book Outlet order, I ended up accidentally ordering The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Adhieh. Which wouldn’t have been a mistake, but I already owned it! I get it confused with An Ember in the Ashes for some reason and I meant to get that but nope! I’m going to probably end up giving it to a friend.


I also got Push Girl by Chelsie Hill and Jessica Love. I ended up getting this book for Diversity Bingo. It is, obviously, about a girl in a wheelchair.


I saw Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys on Book Outlet and I just had to have it. I’ve heard such wonderful things about this book that I wanted to read it no matter what.


Of course, because of the movie, I had to get Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon. I have been wanting to read this book but I just never felt the want to buy it just yet until the movie trailer came out. It just made me even more excited to read it.


I ended up buying In Order To Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom by Yeonmi Park. I’ve heard great things about this woman and how strong she is. I can’t wait to get into this book.


I ended up buying Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. As soon as I saw this on Book Outlet, I knew I just had to get it. I needed to read this book. I’m very excited to finally have and finally be able to break into it. I may read it on a weekend just so I can go through it quickly without having to put it down.


I was kind of iffy about getting Every Day by David Levithan. I want to read it but at the same time, I’m unsure how I’ll feel about it. So, I just decided to pick it up and I’ll see how it goes.


I have been wanting to read To All The Boys I’ve Loved by Jenny Han. I’m really excited for this book. I think that it’ll be a quick and easy read.


I was kind of iffy about getting Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour just because I feel like I’ve been hearing mixed things about this book. I feel like a lot of people gave it three or four stars. But I think it’ll be a quick and easy read.


I’m super excited to read Blindsided by Priscilla Cummings. I have been wanting to read a book with a blind main character. I think it would be an interesting perspective. If I remember correctly, the MC in this book doesn’t start off blind but it’ll still be interesting to me.


So, these next two books are a part of a series. But, they are the fourth and fifth of that series. I found Empire of Storms and Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Maas. I don’t plan on starting this book for a little while so I have time to get the rest but I knew that I wanted to read this series so I figured I might as well get it.


I also got Scarlet, Cress, and Fairest by Marissa Meyer to finish off what I plan on reading of the Lunar Chronicles. I read Cinder and loved it so I’m really excited to finish off this series.


That’s it! That’s the end, finally. This was a quick and easy post of mine but it had to be done! I love book hauls but I haven’t done one in a while. So, here is a decent one!

I hope you enjoyed! What books did you buy this month? Which should I read first?

Happy reading!

October Book Haul (My husband is a butthole)

Alright, so I had to add that little tad bit into the title because I told my husband I would. I was about to start typing this up and he decided to not only bring our 9 week old puppy into the room but also our 15 month old son who just realized he can crawl off the bed and play on the floor! So, this is going to be interesting.

For starters! I bought Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. This is part of the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series. I’m currently trying my hardest to finish this book. I’m going to finish it up after I finish this and before I take my nap. This book follows a boy named Jacob Portman. Due to a tragedy in the family, Jacob goes to an island only to find that the people who used to live in the old abandoned house there were more than they seemed. And he just may end up with more on his plate than he expected.

The second book that I am going to talk about is Incarnate by Jodi Meadows. This is the first book in the Newsoul series. This is a story about a girl named Ana who suddenly appeared in a world that reincarnated a million of the same souls over the years. But her showing up means that someone else was lost. What else could Ana’s coming mean?

The next book is The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. This book is the first in the Mara Dyer series. Obviously, this story follows a girl named Mara Dyer. She has lost her memory and her “friends.” There is one boy who seems to know more about her life than she does. And to add to everything, she starts seeing things that couldn’t possibly be there.

The next book is My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga. This book is about a girl, Aysel, who is ready to give up everything, including her life. She finds a website that has a section specifically for partnered suicide. She finds a boy who she chooses as her partner. As they continue to talk more and their partnered suicide comes closer, Aysel begins to have second thoughts. But she must choose whether to go through with it or convince her partner that it’s a bad idea.

The second to last book is Dark Places by Gillian Flynn. Libby Day put her brother in jail for murdering her mother and sister. Now there is a group of people that are trying to prove him innocent. She helps with this investigation, which reveals some truths and puts her back on the run from a killer.

Dark Places - Gillian Flynn.jpg

And last book in this haul is Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson. In this book, Emily is a shy girl and her best friend, Sloane, is more outgoing. One summer, Sloane disappears, leaving behind a bucket list for Emily to follow and break her out of her shell. Emily tries to follow the bucket list in order to hopefully get Sloane back.

I’m looking forward to reading all of these books! Only a few are on my TBR for Octboer but I’ll have the others on November’s! Now I’m going to go finish Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children! Let me know what you all thought of each of these books if you read them or if you want to read them!
