November 2021 Book Haul

Well...I know I said that November was going to be a smaller book haul than October. I was incredibly wrong. I hauled more books this month than last so obviously that book buying ban did not work. However, I will be on a strict buying ban in December due to Christmas shopping, general living expenses, etc. 

That being said, I hauled thirty books in November. Many of them were heavily discounted (less than $3), some were paid for months ago as preorders, and some were just books I really wanted. I got a lot of books that are companions to tv shows and movies as well and those make up a good number of what I hauled secondhand.

This haul will be a bit different than normal. There's way too many books to talk about for my usual posting method so I will be separating them into sections and then listing them there. So, without further ado, here are the many many books I hauled in November. 

The first section I have is books that are new releases or ones that I preordered a while back. I'm really excited about all of these and look forward to diving into the ones I haven't yet read. 
  1. These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong (Waterstones special edition paperback)
  2. Our Violent Ends by Chloe Gong (Waterstones signed special edition hardback)
  3. All of Us Villains by Amanda Foody and Christine Lynn Herman (UK hardback)
  4. Girls of Fate and Fury by Natasha Ngan (UK hardback)
  5. Still With Me by Jessica Cunsolo (US paperback)

Up next, I have just general books that I've been wanting and ended up picking up this month. I've read a few of these already but the majority are unread and on my immediate TBR for the next few months! Some highlights include some special/hard to find editions and the complete Red Queen series.
  1. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard (Collector's Edition)
  2. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard (Collector's Edition)
  3. King's Cage by Victoria Aveyard (Target Exclusive Edition)
  4. War Storm by Victoria Aveyard (US hardcover)
  5. From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout (US hardcover)
  6. These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong (Owlcrate exclusive signed hardcover)
  7. The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood (US paperback)
  8. These Hollow Vows by Lexi Ryan (Fairyloot exclusive signed hardcover)
  9. S. by JJ Abrams and Doug Dorst

The next section I have is a few books that were heavily discounted. These are all romcoms where I was able to get all three for the cost of a single book at retail price. I've been getting into romcoms a lot more in the past couple of years as well and have been specifically looking for holiday-themed ones this autumn (aka for Halloween & Christmas time). 
  1. The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary (UK paperback)
  2. To Love and to Loathe by Martha Waters (UK paperback)
  3. The Holiday Swap by Maggie Knox  (UK paperback)

The final portion of books I want to talk about is movie and tv show companion books. I found a secondhand seller online who has tons of companion books for my favorite movies and shows. Most of these were for very cheap (less than $3-$4). Believe it or not, but I actually had way more in my cart before I scaled down to these (though eventually I want all of them).
  1. Bones: The Official Companion by Paul Ruditis
  2. Bones: The Forensic Files by Paul Ruditis
  3. The Hunger Games: The Official Illustrated Movie Companion by Kate Egan
  4. Twilight: The Complete Illustrated Movie Companion by Mark Cotta Vaz
  5. New Moon: The Complete Illustrated Movie Companion by Mark Cotta Vaz
  6. Eclipse: The Complete Illustrated Movie Companion by Mark Cotta Vaz
  7. Breaking Dawn Part 1: The Official Illustrated Movie Companion by Mark Cotta Vaz
  8. The Adventures of Merlin: The Complete Guide by Jacqueline Rayner
  9. The Dragon's Call by Simon A. Forward
  10. The Adventures of Merlin: Villains Guide Jacqueline Rayner
  11. The Adventures of Merlin: Heroes Guide Jacqueline Rayner
  12. The Adventures of Merlin: The Official Annual 2010 by Various Authors
  13. The Adventures of Merlin: The Book of Mystery and Magic by Various Authors

Well, that's my haul for November. It was rather large, though I've had larger hauls (I've also had smaller hauls where I spent more money than this). However, I'm really excited about every book that I hauled this past month and I especially can't wait to dive into the companion novels.
