July book haul

If you missed my blog about the Chapter 5 #ProofParty, you’ll have missed the most exciting part of this book haul, so go and check that out! There were 12 books in that haul, but because I have no self-control I’ve also bought some books this month – whoops!

Library book sale: 

Decided to buy a few non-fiction titles that look interesting this month, and also managed to grab a few interesting novels.
Charity shopping:
I’ve always been interested in the logistics of running a cafe, so when I saw a business advice book about it I was so excited. That and the cupcake book cost 50p in total – such a bargain! I’m also very excited to finally read some more Pratchett books.
bookbridgr:
Both my bookbridgr titles this month are sequels (which probably means I should read the earlier installments!) and I need to say a huge thank you to Headline for sending me ‘Dominion’, and Hodder for ‘Recreated’. I’m looking forward to both of these immensely.
Other books:
The lovely people at Faber actually sent me ‘The Girl With a Clock For a Heart’ last month, but I completely forgot to haul it – I’m so sorry! I’m looking forward to seeing if Peter Swanson’s debut novel lives up to the brilliance that was his second.
Then the lovely people at Atom asked if I’d like a proof of ‘The Shadow Hour’, and of course I said HECK YEAH! This is my most anticipated sequel of the year, and I want to read it right now but the wait for this one to be released has been torturous… I’ll probably cave by the end of the month.
Owlcrate:
Last, but certainly not least, in this month’s Owlcrate there was a Good vs. Evil theme, and I got a good box! That meant an adorable Pop! Vinyl of Dobby, and a beautiful magnetic bookmark of Alice. 
Of course, you can see it sat there: the book this month was THIS SAVAGE SONG!!!!!
I’ve been dying to get my hands on this, and I want to read it so much, but I’m in a backlog of review books so I can’t. Soon, though. Soon.
That means in total this month I acquired 28 books. Not as few as I’d hoped, but I’m so busy throughout the entirety of August that there will definitely be no book buying. Nope, not at all…
