Book Haul | 9.21.2020

Hello, book lovers! šŸ’•

I figured I’d share the most recent books that I’ve bought, and I thought I might do something similar in the future when I buy a handful of books. And I think I’m going to stick to physical books and ebooks only because I don’t buy those types of books that often. And every so often, I want to treat myself to some books, ya know?

So late last week, I decided to order a bunch of books on Amazon. The main reason I bought them is because most of them are on my Fall Reading list. I didn’t own them when I made that, and I thought it was cheaper to get the physical versions of these books rather than the ebooks. Because for some reason the Kindle version for a lot of them were more than the physical? Which I found kind of weird, but that’s besides the point.

I also haven’t bought many books (at least all at once) these last few months besides subscription books (which I haven’t gotten recently). And I needed some retail therapy.

I haven’t been excited to read physical books in a while, and I’m excited to get these in the mail. But without any further ado, let’s get onto the books I bought! I’ll link them to Goodreads if you’re interested in knowing more about them.


The Headmaster by Tiffany Reisz is the only ebook that I got in this haul. It’s pretty short (less than 150 pages), and it was only $2.99 on Amazon. I mentioned in my post on Friday that I was currently reading it, and I still am. It’s a lot steamier than I was expecting, though I knew going into it that there’d be a romance between a teacher and the headmaster of a boarding school. But I thought there were more elements of mystery to get me in the fall mood. And that’s not necessarily the case.

I’m really excited for the rest of the books that I bought, though. To the point where I don’t know which one I’m going to pick up after I finish reading The Headmaster.

The House on the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune is a book that I’ve heard really good things about, but I have no idea what it’s about. But the cover is gorgeous, so I had to pick it up. This was one of the books that wasn’t on my Fall Reading list, but it is now. I’m really hoping it lives up to the hype that is around it.

Another book that wasn’t on my Fall Reading list is If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio. This is one that I saw on Riley Marie’s BookTube video and instantly knew that I needed to read it. Just looking at the cover gave me all kinds of fall vibes. Like look that it. It’s just a skull and looks so ominous and kind of creepy. Again, I’m not sure exactly what it’s about other than it’s a murder mystery. Which isn’t something I’m normally interested in reading, but I’m alway looking to expand my reading.

The last two books that I recently bought were actually on my Fall Reading list, and I’ll definitely be reading them in October for Halloween. Specifically The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury. It’s in the title that it’s a Halloween book. From what I read in the summary, it explores the meaning of Halloween and is a book that inspired Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas (which I absolutely love).

I mentioned in a previous post that I really like Francesca Zappia’s books, and I had no idea that she published another book. And of course it’s a book that is perfect for fall and the Halloween season. Now Entering Addamsville has ghost stories, mystery, and something about finding the identity of a killer; that’s all I really needed to know other than the fact that it is by Francesca Zappia. I knew I needed to read it, and I knew I needed to read it in October. If it’s anything like her previous books, I know I’m going to enjoy it.

So those are the books that I recently bought. I’m so excited to read all of them, and they all give me such fall vibes. Have you guys read any of these books? What were your thoughts on them? I’d love to discuss them in the comments below!
