Book Haul: August 2016

A book haul FULL of amazing reads just begging to be read!

Some of you may know, my husband and I are making a big life change… we’re boxing up our home in Denver and heading to Reno to be closer to our families. So over the past week I’ve had the task of boxing up some things. The first to go were my books. My husband brought a box up into my office and said hey start packing. I was like yeah okay it should be easy right well it set off an anxiety attack… I couldn’t stand the thought of an empty bookshelf for the month. Turns out though, the TBR stack sitting on the floor… it fills up my almost empty shelf ha! And I thought I’d only need a few boxes. I’m already at two and I have a good feeling I’m going to need a LOT more!

Anyways, over the month of August I’ve been able to add more great reads to the TBR shelf! I’m so excited for these reads. Have you read any of them?

Order your copies of the August reads from Amazon:

The Muse by Jessie Burton

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

Good As Gone by Amy Gentry

Keep Her by Leora Krygier

After You by Jojo Moyes

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

Book Haul: June 2016

June, oh June! You were so good to me.

June, oh June! You were so good to me. I hauled 24 books this month – 5 of them I bought and the rest were sent to me! Holy moly!! Thank you BookSparks for the amazing boxes and to Cate and Riverhead Books for the Instagram giveaway for Modern Lovers! I had such a hard time choosing which to read first. Every time I walk into the room, I can hear the books not chosen screaming at me Pick me! Pick me! I’m starting to think I need a two month tropical vacation to work my way through my ever growing TBR pile. Anyone else feeling the same way?

I love the feeling of purchasing a new book which is probably why the TBR pile gets out of hand. I’ve really been trying to be better about the book buying, but sometimes I just can’t resist ha! And to make things worse, it’s my birthday month so you can bet that I’ll have another large book haul this month… I’m currently reading You Will Know Me which is going to be released this month. So far, I’m really enjoying it, but I need your help. What should I read next? Comment below and happy reading!!

Unboxing: BookSparks July #SRC2016 Box

BookSparks sends the best book mail!

If you follow me on Instagram then you may know that I won a box full of amazing books from BookSparks a few weeks ago. It was their May Summer Reading Challenge (SRC) box and I was so so happy. Thus far, I have LOVED the books that were included! You can watch my unboxing of that here or see below for full reviews on the ones I’ve gotten to read so far. Like I said the books have been great and when I received an email saying I had been selected for the July box… I screamed! I felt bad for my husband (who probably thought something was seriously wrong) and the animals (who fled with fur sticking up in every direction), but I was just too dang excited.

For the last week I have been (not so) patiently waiting and waiting. Just when I let it go and thought, it’ll be here soon. Relax. I walk out the door and trip over it (thanks FedEx man for not ringing the bell and letting me know my goodies arrived!) Poor Butters, I turned back right away with the box so I could open it… only then we could go for a walk!

Now for the really fun part… watch as I unbox the July SRC box then follow me on Instagram for more photos and reviews of each book! I can’t wait to share these with you. From the synopsis, which book are you most looking forward to??

Thank you again BookSparks!!

Be sure to follow BookSparks and join in on the #SRC2016 because it will be the #BestSummerEver!!
