Book Haul | December ’15

december book haul

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all doing well and that you had a great weekend which started off the year well for you! I know I’m just a teensy bit late in posting my December book haul, but I’ve been super busy with personal things. Nothing bad – I just have some friends over from abroad, and I’ve been spending a lot of time with them, so posting has been difficult.

I didn’t buy too many books in December. There was the Black Friday sale on Book Outlet in November, but since the books didn’t get delivered to me until the first week of December, I decided to include those in this haul.


Black Friday Book Outlet Haul

The first book I bought was Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld, and I was so excited to get my hands on this because I’ve heard nothing but good things. The premise seems really promising, and the book was on the site for $2, and I couldn’t pass that up. Pretties by Scott Westerfeld was a random buy. I own the first book, but I haven’t read it, and now I own the second one so I better like Uglies! The Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy by Jenny Han is another series that has me intrigued. I’m not big on contemporaries but I’ve heard good things about this, and my previous experiences with Jenny Han have been good, so I’ll give this and Burn for Burn a go. The Shadow Society is written by Ms. Marie Rutkoski, who wrote one of my favorite trilogies ever – the Winner’s trilogy. I’ve been dying to get my hands on something else by her, and this book was $1 on Book Outlet, so I had to snag it. The Walls Around Us was another impulse buy. I love the cover – I needed to have it. And the last book I got from Book Outlet was We All Looked Up, and this is another one that I’ve heard decent things about.

Owl Crate

This month was my second go with Owl Crate, and for the most part, I was pretty happy with the box. I received a delicious-smelling candle, a book agenda of sorts and a notepad. The book I received is Da Vinci’s Tiger, and this book is a historical fiction (?) revolving around Leonardo Da Vinci’s youth. I think. I might be wrong. I can’t say I’m too excited about reading this – I’m very picky with historical fiction, but Da Vinci has always intrigued me, so I might give this a chance.

So that’s it for this month’s haul. Like I said, I didn’t buy too many books. I think I spent a total of $30 on books this month, which is pretty decent for me. Let me know down in the comments below what books you bought this month. Also let me know what your thoughts are on the books shown in this haul. Until next time. 🙂


  1. Oo! I see some amazing books on there! Obviously, you read my review of Pretties, and Afterworlds is currently sitting my room waiting to be read.^.^ Yay!

    $30 for all of that?! My goodness! Hit me up next time there’s a sale. :p Hee hee!

  2. Great book haul! I got The Summer I Turned Pretty in December too as well as the Uglies series. 🙂 I’m pretty excited to see what the OwlCrate for January will be. She said there will be a HP themed item! I liked December’s though. I think my favorite was the candle.

    • My favorite was probably the candle too. It smelled just like coffee and chocolate. Mm. XD I’m excited for the January box! I also have a faint idea about what the book’s going to be, so yay. 😀

  3. Great haul! In my opinion, The Uglies & The Pretties & that series was a lot better than Afterworlds. I hope you like them 🙂 Da Vinci’s Tiger sounds so interesting!

  4. I discovered your blog by googling ‘what to read after the Raven Cycle.’ It’s adorable! I feel so inspired to book blog now.

    Scott Westerfeld was one of my favorite authors in middle school and, while I feel like I outgrew the Uglies series, his book Afterworlds was amazing. I feel like his writing has grown up with me. I hope you like it!

    I’m going to keep scrolling through your blog now! (Also, I’m an undergrad at NYU too! Junior.)

Penny for your thoughts?
