September 2020 Book Haul

Another month gone, another haul to share with you all! This month was a huge month for book releases and there are so many that I am excited about. I wasn't able to get my hands on all of the books I want, but I was able to snag some that I'm pretty excited about! I got a total of 9 physical books this month (and a bunch of ebooks that were on sale) so let's go ahead and dive right in!

The first three books that I got were for my literature class this semester: Orlando by Virginia Woolf, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. I'm currently reading Frankenstein and Jane Eyre at the moment and Orlando is on the syllabus for November, I believe. I have somewhat good hopes for the first two but I have a tenuous relationship with Virginia Woolf's longer works (though I do like her essays). 

I then picked up a copy of The Lost Book of the White by Cassandra Clare. This is the second book in the Eldest Curses trilogy, which is one of the many series within the Shadowhunters universe. I am very excited to begin my reread of the Shadowhunters books so that I can finally get around to reading these as Magnus and Alec are two of my favorite characters.

Then I got one of my most anticipated releases of the year: Blood & Honey by Shelby Mahurin. I actually ended up with two copies--a regular hardcover and a signed and personalized edition. I'm so excited to have this book in my hands after such a long wait from book one. I did read this book in September as well and you can find my review here

I was also sent an ARC of A Golden Fury by Samantha Cohoe. This is a book that has been on my radar for over a year and I'm so excited to have an advanced copy of it! I'll be reading it in October so that I can participate in a blog tour (where I'm pretty sure there will be a giveaway--so stay tuned!) and I am incredibly excited about it. 

Then I was sent an ARC of The Puppetmaster's Apprentice by Lisa DeSelm. This is another October release where I am participating in the blog tour and I am also so excited for this one. It sounds creepy and dark and just such a perfect October read! I'm pretty sure there will be a giveaway for this one as well so keep an eye out!

Lastly, I wandered into a physical bookstore for the first time in over six months and ended up walking out with Legendborn by Tracy Deonn. I couldn't help myself once I saw it on the shelves in all its beautiful glory. This one sounds so exciting and magical and I hope that I can get to it before the end of the year. 

Well, those are all of the physical books that I got in September! I anticipate October's haul to be slightly smaller, but no less exciting as there are some of my anticipated releases coming soon! Did you get any exciting books in September? Let me know in the comments!
