Book Haul #43: MIBF + Birthday Books

Manila International Book Fair MIBF 2015 haul

September went by fast. In comparison, my wallet emptied almost just as quick then. I feel like I bought ALL the books last month. Probably not really, but I did buy quite a lot. In this book haul, you’ll mainly find my purchases from the 36th Manila International Book Fair and my birthday week, alongside my single book mail.

Book Mail

Compulsion by Martina Boone

Since I was part of the Compulsion paperback blog tour last month, I got some awesome goodies from the author! Super adore the swag she sent. <3

So you’re probably thinking That didn’t seem like such a huge book haul, Hazel but I’m not done yet. Remember when I recapped Colleen Hoover, Tarryn Fisher and Christine Brae’s book signing last month? Well, all the 12 books I got signed were newly bought. So they’re totally part of my September book purchases. Combined with the 11 purchased books on here, that gives us a total of 23 books. Which happens to be my birthday. Coincidence? I think not.

On that note, I’m so going on a book buying ban this October. Yep.

Which books did you get recently? Have you read any of the books on my haul?

  1. My September cash got eaten by books, too!

    NBS had this half-off sale, and our Fully Booked branch here was closing, so I bought SO MANY BOOKS!!! :\

    Anyway, belated happy twentieth, Hazel! :)

  2. I read P.S I Still Love You! Great book! I also bought The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler last month but I haven’t read it. Great MIBF and birthday books overhaul, Hazel! I’m also banning myself on buying books until November. Ha ha… I purchased Earth bound by Christine Feehan and Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn! :)

  3. Great books! Your copy of Peter Pan is so cute. I need to read The Wrath of the Dawn still; I have the copy it just sits on my shelf.

  4. The feeling is mutual Hazel! Goodness the amount I spent on books last month alone was just crazy! At least we had fun!

    Also belated Happy Birthday! Welcome to the club of twen-teens… :))

  5. SO MANY GREAT BOOKS! (And your pictures, oh my god. SO BEAUTIFUL) I absolutely adore the Alice in Wonderland cover … I really need to get a copy, I love Alice but haven’t read the original yet. Need to change that ASAP. I already own The Wrath & The Dawn but haven’t read it yet, so I really hope you’ll enjoy it! BUT NOOOW. THE ONE THING. HELL YES! I love this book so, so much! ♥

    Awesome haul, Hazel! Happy reading! :D

  6. I’m so happy to see Dumplin’ in your haul!! It’s a great book made for someone like me, if you know what I mean, and I have a strong feeling that lots of people could relate to her as well. I can’t wait for you to read it! :)

  7. That cover of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is sooo pretty!!! I love the selection of books you have! Belated happy birthday!! <3

  8. awesone haul! I want to read The Wrath and the Dawn so so bad but I haven’t had the chance to get my hands on it yet and the same goes for Dumplin! P.S I still love you I thought was really good! I hope you enjoy it!
