September 2022 Wrap-Up + Haul

Another month gone, another anti-climatic wrap up. September was quite a stressful month and I was actually too stressed/anxious to read much of anything. That being said, I read one book this month (and it was really good) and only hauled three. For that reason, I'm including both my wrap up and haul together! I'm hopeful that October will be better (once we find a new apartment) as I have a bunch of exciting spooky/witchy books on my TBR for this season. Anywho, let's go ahead and dive in!  

Title: Babel
Author: R.F. Kuang
Rating: 4.5 // 5 stars

This month was a small haul month but also a very Fairyloot-heavy one. I got three books this month and all of them were Fairyloot books from their YA and Adult subscriptions. I'm very excited about all of these and they're all so stunning, so let's just get into it! 

Up first, I have Babel by R.F. Kuang which was the adult book-only pick for August.  This edition came with a redesigned cover, foiling, artwork printed on the cover, artwork on the endpages, gorgeous digital sprayed edges, and came signed. It's honestly such a beautiful edition and I think I even prefer it to my Illumicrate edition (which I think I'm going to sell so I can keep the Fairyloot one). I also finished this book in September (it was the only book I read) so peep my review linked above! 

Then I have Belladonna by Adalyn Grace from the YA September box. This edition has an exclusive cover, artwork printed on the cover, artwork on the endpages, stencil sprayed edges, and came signed. This edition is absolutely stunning and I'm so happy with the changes they made as I much prefer them to the standard UK covers. I have really enjoyed the other book I read by her and the premise of this book is quite interesting so I'm definitely excited to read this (maybe soon?). I also know it's not a standalone so we might get a gorgeous matching edition for the sequel next year! 

The last book I got this month was Spells for Forgetting by Adrienne Young from the adult book-only September box. This edition has an exclusive cover, embossing on the hardcover, artwork on the endpages, digital sprayed edges, and came signed. I've loved everything I've read by Adrienne Young and I'm so excited for her newest release. Plus, this edition is absolutely gorgeous. 

These were the only three books that I got in the month of September, but I do have some Fairyloot preorders that are finally shipping across the next few months that I paid for ages ago so I am quite looking forward to those. But with the stress of moving apartments, I haven't been buying as many things (books or otherwise) so that we don't have more to move or store. Also once we have our budget figured out I can't wait to pick up some more new releases that I haven't been able to get yet. 

Thanks for reading!
