June 2018 Books Bought

Since starting my blog back in August of 2008 I always want to share what books I get with you so that you can see what I will be reading and what new books there are out there and I am always looking for a place to link them so that others can see them so from now on I will be sharing my links on Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality. As Marlene has offered to co-host Stacking The Shelves with Tynga’s Reviews.

I am also going back to sharing my link on Mailbox Monday’s blog. This was originally hosted by Marcia but it now has its own blog which you can see by clicking on THIS.

One of the things I love about these kinds of posts is finding new books that I might not normally hear about and this month I found a few goodies that I am excited about.

I have decided to go back to how I was originally posting my monthly book hauls and just showing the books I bought in the month. If I get books from a publisher I will add those in here as well.

Without further delay lets get into the books. The first 5 books were ones I bought when I attend Montreal’s first ever YA Fest (so these were technically May purchases but I had already put up my post for May).  In May, Chapters had a promotion, where you spent $40 you were given a $10 gift card so I redeemed my two and bought the next two books. Chapters started this month of June off with Buy 3 and get 4th free so I picked up 4 books.  Then I had to go back and exchange two books because I had already bought them previously.

This month is a little crazy in books as you can see but I really think that the next two months will be quiet in book purchasing

Chapters had another Indigo Book Box available so I figured since they were having another 10x the plum points on $25 that I would order the box. The box included a signed book (this book is massive 650+ pages), a good vibes only candle (which smells really good), a letter from the author,  exclusive Scarlet Guard insignia enamel pin and a chapters bookmark.
