End-of-ban book haul! | #25

Book Haul Base Banner

Hello! The day has come! As of December 25th, my buying ban is complete! I succeeded in it, buying only the two books I specified at the beginning of the ban (The Monster Baru Cormorant and Wotakoi volume 3) and two books for buddy reads (Robin Hobb books) that were read right away and therefore didn’t add to the TBR. So! On December 26th, I went to the bookstore, and I went a bit nutso.

This haul is the four books I obtained over the ban, the one graphic novel I got for Christmas and the… nine books I picked up as soon as the ban was over. πŸ˜€


This is (almost) all of them! AREN’T THEY BEAUTIFUL.


This is the one thing I got for Christmas this year: Saga volume 9, by Brian K Vaughan. It’s the one book I forgot to include in the above photo. Oop.

The Monster Baru Cormorant and Wotakoi volume 3. These! These are the two books that were exceptions to the ban. The one on the left, I’m still reading. The one on the right, was wonderful.

Dragon Haven and City of Dragons by Robin Hobb.Β  These two I purchased for my buddy reads with Zezee! We’ve finished Dragon Haven, and are currently on City of Dragons.

Furyborn by Claire Legrand and The Shape of Water by Daniel Kraus. Got these babies for half price. :”D

Chew volumes 3 and 4 by John Layman and Rob Guillory. Got these for half price, too!

An Ember in the Ashes and A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir. I read the first a long time ago and loved it. Finally got around to picking up a copy. So yay, only one of them will go on my unread list.

My Hero Academia volume 1, Fruits Basket Another volume 2, and Silver Spoon volume 1. I went to the store, and they were having a buy two, get one manga sale. So I got six. Haw.

Attack on Titan volumes 17 and 18, Tokyo Ghoul volume 1 and Children of Time. These are the other three manga. And sci-fi to boot!


And that’s it! Now that the build-up of UGH I NEED TO BUY BOOKS is out of my system, my buying should revert to… 4 per month. Ish. Wish me luck, hawhaw. It’s so satisfying to be able to buy books again.

  1. Impressive tower of books πŸ˜€

    Aww that Saga cover, it’s so wholesome! And I’m intrigued by ‘Silver Spoon’. Love cows, lol

    I am going to the bookstore next Thursday because I still have a voucher from Christmas ❀ and I will probably buy 'The Monster Baru Cormorant' as well, cause my Kindle Store still doesn't have it!

      1. That was my experience too. Loved the movie, which made me want to read the book and loved the book too. The book gives a lot more depth to the characters and round them out more, but it’s very similar to the movie. Of course, I love the book more, but both are great.
