July-August Book Haul + Folio Society Unboxing

Just wanted to share my book haul for July and August! To take a look at my previous book haul for May and June CLICK HERE.

Like I said in my first book haul post, I don’t buy a lot of books. I usually buy ones I’ve read and loved or books that I have a feeling that I might really enjoy. I like buying collector’s editions as well.

My haul for the month of June:

  • A Game of Thrones Illustrated edition by George R.R. Martin
  • Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
  • His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman
  • Fairy Tales by Hans Andersen (Everyman’s Library Children’s Classics Edition)
  • Fairy Tales by the Brothers Grimm (Everyman’s Library Children’s Classics Edition)
  • East of the Sun, West of the Moon

My haul for the month of August:

  • The Emperor’s Soul by Brandon Sanderson
  • The Ice Dragon by George R.R. Martin
  • Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb (20th-anniversary edition)

Various collector editions of books that I’m interested in will be released soon so hopefully, I’ll get my hands on those. Stay tuned!

Anyone haul any good books lately?

  1. Hi!! Although I don’t have any of these books, it is very interesting to read about what your book haul. I have been looking for Rebecca at my used bookstore (will track it down one day!) Recently, I’ve bought Divergent, City of Bones, Tuesdays with Morrie, Two by Two, By Gaslight, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, and a collection of books by the Bronte sisters.

    • thanks Sophie! Nice haul! I read the synopsis for By Gaslight sometime ago and it sounds really good! It’s definitely something I’d read. When you do let me know how it is. I need to read more from the Bronte’s. I’ve only ever read Wuthering Heights and did not like it.

      • Haha the problem is that I listen to audiobooks more than I read books in print, so I will be getting through my print books very slowly! But I will let you know when I get around to that one haha. I did hear some mixed opinions about Wuthering Heights, but thought I’d read it since it’s a classic 🙂

  2. Do you have a link for that Wizard of earthsea folio edition? I’ve collected the old wood cut picture covers but would like something that I actually feel comfortable reading instead of just displaying…
