Mini Book Haul || May 2017

Hi lovelies! Hope you’re all having a great May so far! Here’s a little book haul for you guys!

In the beginning of the month, I decided to go on a book ban because my bookshelf is currently overflowing with books I have yet to read, but it’s already the third week of May and I’ve managed to break and cave into the power of book sales. 🙈 In my defense, it was a 50% off sale, so I think it was worth breaking my book ban. 😜 Here are the books I bought:

Queens of Geek – Jen Wilde
Exit, Pursued by a Bear – E.K. Johnston
Rose & The Dagger – Renee Ahdieh
Defy The Stars – Claudia Gray
Always & Forever, Lara Jean – Jenny Han

Personally, I’m really excited for Always & Forever, Lara Jean since it’s the last book of one of my all time favourite series, so I’ll be reading that one first! I’ve already read Exit, Pursued by a Bear but I loved it so much, I wanted to get a copy of it and it was half off, so why not, right? 😉 The rest are other books I’ve been eyeing for a while, mostly because their covers are SO nice. The Rose & The Dagger is still my favourite cover redesign ever. 😍 I haven’t read The Wrath & The Dawn series yet, but I plan on reading it next!

What about you guys? Have you bought any books you’re excited to read recently? See any books I mentioned you’ve read or want to read? Let me know!

    You have some awesome books there, so yes, they are worth breaking the ban :D I haven’t read any of them except TWATD, and I’ll probably grab my copy of Always and Forever soon. TWATD was my favorite book last year, so I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!

    I bought the wrath and the dawn a few weeks back and it’s a book I can’t wait to get too. I’m contemplating reading always and forever by lara jean as I have read the first two but can not for the life of me remember what happened completely!

      I actually have the same problem as well! I read the first two Lara Jean books so long ago, I forgot what happened!! But I definitely want to know how Jenny will conclude it, so I’ll just refresh my mind throughout the book haha

    This is a great haul! I’ve been wanting to read Queens of Geek and I’ve read and loved To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and I’m planning to continue with the series soon! The Wrath & The Dawn and The Rose & The Dagger are both amazing as well! I hope you love the books!
