August Book Haul!!

Alright Bookworms! So I told myself that I would go on a Book Buying Ban for the month of August....Well here we are with books that I either pre-ordered and received now, or books sent to me (and a few books I bought too, I know.....) So with that being said, let's get to probably the smallest book Haul I've had since starting this blog!

 Vinyl (The Vinyl Trilogy #1) By: Sophia Elaine Hanson
I received this book from Sophia personally for an honest review. Her second book has been released as well and these covers are just gorgeous!! I really cannot wait to get to reading this!

 All Is Not Forgotten By: Wendy Walker
I received this book from Indigo for their monthly book club reading. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to read it due to lack of motivation and a lot of other things happening this month. However I am excited to read it!

Only Fools Jump By: K.P. Haigh
 I received a physical copy of Only Fools Jump from K.P Haigh after reviewing her novel! I do have the review posted, if you are interested in reading what I thought of it!

Zoe only has time for dry shampoo, energy bars and a magical photo filter to erase the dark circles under her eyes. When she meets Elliot, she knows that she is in serious trouble. Dealing with her own secret, and now her boss's new resident to the pool house, keeping her distance is easier said than done...

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (Harry Potter #8) By: J.K. Rowling
So most of you are wondering why I bought the newest harry potter novel, when I haven't even started the series...Well, I was getting super excited with the fandom and hype over it, that I wanted to be a part of it!

This follows the story of Harry Potter nineteen years later. I don't want to read the synopsis, due to the fact of spoiling some things for me. I do know that this is a screenplay rather than a full out novel. 

 How (Not) to Find a Boyfriend By: Allyson Valentine
Alright, so I gave in and bought a was from the dollar store so I feel like it doesn't really count, although my book bloggers would disagree.

Nora Fulbright is a newly popular cheerleader, although her past consisted of running the Chess team, and acing every test possible. This year, she is determined to transition from a social pupa to a full blown butterfly. However when the sweet Adam moves into town, she needs to prove she isn't a airhead, while keeping her status as a popular.

 It Ends With Us By: Colleen Hoover
Okay, so I know that you all know I currently bought a copy last why am I having a second copy? Well that would be due to the fact that I ordered back in July a personalized signed copy of this book from a store in the US where the amazing Colleen Hoover was signing. It is my favourite novel, so having 2 copies is just an obvious...right?

This is the life of Lily, and how it hasn't always been easy. Her life has come a long way from her small town in Maine where she grew up. Moving to Boston to start her own business, she suddenly sparks something with the hot neurosurgeon Ryle Kincaid. But as things are beginning to boom, more questionable moments begin to cause problems for the two of them.

Swept Away (Sixteenth Summer #3)
I found a copy of this on sale at  +Indigo | Chapters so I just had to get it! I have the first book in this series, and now I need book 2... Apparently they all seem to be standalones, however you can read them in order too.

Mandy Sullivan isn't looking forward to the summer months as tourists invade her seaside hometown. Her best friend Cynthia has abandoned her for camp, and her older brother is staying at college. On her first day of volunteering at the lighthouse, Oliver Farmingham asks for a private tour... #ouu!

I had actually won a giveaway that Melissa Pearl was holding, and it involved a signed book by the author. I had asked her to surprise me, and she sent me this one with a note stating it was her book boyfriend ;)

Things take a turn for the weird when she soon discovers that she is hovering between life and death. Her body is in the forest, while her spirits is searching for anyone who can help.

 Lucky Harbor Collection (Lucky Harbor #4-6) By: Jill Shalvis
Another book that I bought this month.. I know so bad! this was a three book in one, on sale at Indigo, and I couldn't resist!

Mallry has has enough of playing it safe, and is read to date Mr. Right...or maybe Mr. Wrong. Amy love her new life in Lucky Harbor, until a wrong turn takes her off the train and in close quarters with Matt. Grace never thought she would start her life over, working as a walker for the ER doctor Josh. Each story is a standalone, all revolving the lives of those in Lucky Harbor.

Mystical, Mythical (Mystical #1-2) By: Michael Weekly
I received these copies from Michael personally after reading both books for review! I am still waiting for book three, so if Michael is reading this I NEED IT NOW!! :) 

I am so in love with these new covers that he had made up, but I will always keep the first copy, as it is really special and only a few have it!

I do have my reviews of these two up on my blog, so if you are interested in reading about Eliza Rose and of course some very hot encounters, I totally would check it out!

Eliza has found out she is a witch. However with her way onto being an assassin, she is also starting college with her best friend Dawn, so things aren't all about casting spells...

Murderous mermaids, fairies, elves are just the start of a wild adventure, including running into Donovan, who happens to be hiding a secret himself...

That is all for my August Book Haul! I hope you did enjoy these new titles, I had added to my shelves. I am definitely going to try to reduce the amount of books I buy for September, although it's only been a few days and I'm almost already at this amount I had for August #sorrynotsorry!

So until the next time, Keep Reading!
Your Graduated Bookworm!! :)
