July 2019 Book Mail

As promised, here are all the wonderful goodies I received in the mail during the first part of July!  It’s a great mix of publisher sent arcs to review, arcs I traded for, preorders, and purchases.  Expect to see reviews of many of these in the near future.

June Book/Bookish Mail Haul and June #OTSPSecretSister

I meant to get this post done before leaving on vacation, but that didn’t quite work out.  So this post will showcase the second half of June, and I’ll have another post later in the week with my book mail for the beginning of July!  It’s been a crazy couple of months for mail, and it’s all so exciting 🙂

Book Mail, Book Haul, and #OTSPSecretsister for May


May’s package from my secret sister brought a bunch of stuff from my wishlist that I’m super excited for.  Now that I have Wanderlust, I can finally dive into the Sirantha Jax series, which I feel I will fully like if it’s anything like the Kate Daniels or October Daye series (I didn’t start either of these until they were well established).  And isn’t the little Night Light super adorable?!?  I’m also looking forward to the challenge of the metal praying mantis model.  I’ve never done one of these before, but I like how they look!


This month I received the March Anime Lootcrate (notice how late it is), which had a couple of recycled items that appeared in previous boxes, but also had this lovely mug (not to be microwaved/soaked, hand wash only) and a fun sticker with the theme art.  I also received this moth pin from a purchase I made.


This ARC came from BEA, which I did not attend, but one of my trading buddies was able to snag it for me 🙂  It sounds fascinating!


Last but not least, the Springfield public library had its big summer book sale over the weekend.  I, apparently, almost missed it but was able to find a few small gems.  With my new commute for work, I’ve been pushing through audiobooks with abandon.  So I grabbed these two even though I’ve already read them for fun rereads.  I found this almost pristine paperback of Poison Study with the original cover, which I loved.  Will probably give it to a friend as a gift 🙂  I’ve heard good things about The Lies of Locke Lamora, so I picked this one up.  And a last minute pick up with a Native American fantasy theme.  That may also become a gift, but it looked interesting.

That’s all for now, but I’ve got several trades in the work, so I expect to have another book mail haul post soon!  So many goodies!  Can’t wait to get some more reading done 🙂

All the Book Mail from January! (It’s Quite a Bit)

It’s been awhile since my last book haul post, and I’ve gathered several fun new titles for my personal library.  I’m just so excited to read them!  Do you see any here that are on your TBR?


This is my Book Outlet purchase from the Boxing Day sale.  I used this opportunity to pick up several new manga, an isekai light novel, an art book, the newest Invisible Library volume, and a paperback copy of Godsgrave (so I can keep my hardcover in good condition).

Pre-Holiday Book Haul and Kickstarter

With all of the craziness that comes with the end of the year and holidays, I’ve been unable to document all the lovely books that I’ve been blessed with.  Both pre-holiday and as Christmas presents.  In this post, I will focus on the goodies not associated with the holidays.  Another post will deal with all the lovely secret santas that I participated in.  I’m really excited to share all of these wonderful books!
