January Book Haul #26

Book Haul Base Banner

https://i.imgur.com/XS0XVS1.gifHappy Hump Day! Today I figured I’d do a haul. Now, at the beginning of the year, I made a resolution to keep my book buying to 4-5 books per year. I’ve since then added a bit of detail onto it.

I’ve decided that if I buy a manga or graphic novel (not a regular book) with the intention of reading it as soon as I get home, and then actually read it when I get home, it doesn’t count towards the five. I decided on this for two reasons: 1 – the whole point of my limit is to keep my TBR from growing, and if I read it right away, the TBR doesn’t grow, and 2 – manga takes like thirty minutes to read. I feel like if I counted them towards my five, I’d never actually buy them because of how fast I get through them, even though I’m actively following many series at the moment. I’d fall behind. 😛 So manga don’t count… if I read them right away. If I buy them and don’t get to them immediately, then they count.

Does that makes sense? I have no idea. Basically I’m just giving way to my impulses I suppose. What else is new.

Anyways. The books!

I got a lot of YA, and all fantasy. I dig it, though.

Empire of Storms and Tower of Dawn by Sarah J Maas – Haven’t gotten to these yet. I rather liked the world expansion in books three and four, so hoping I like these too.

Blood of Dragons by Robin Hobb – The fourth and last book in the Rain Wild Chronicles, this series has really grown on me. I’m buddy reading it with Zezee and we’re both digging it so far!

Crooked Kingdom and King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo – I buzzed through the Six of Crows duology earlier this month after getting Crooked Kingdom, and am currently in the middle of King of Scars. I wrote a full blabber on Crooked Kingdom, and intend to for King of Scars as well as soon as I finish it.


I also got one graphic novel this month that falls into the category above – I bought it and read it immediately (so yay, doesn’t increased TBR) That is Fence volume 2 by C. S. Pacat.


And that’s it! I think I’ll keep separating out the five books and the ‘immediate read’ manga/graphic novels. Until next month, happy reading!
