I always enjoy watching book subscription unboxing videos on YouTube but I never had much desire to subscribe to a monthly book box myself. I am Canadian and I didn’t think that after the conversion of the dollar from USD to CDN plus shipping costs would be worth it. I would rather spend that money on buying several books that I know what I am getting and don’t feel the need for all that bookish goodies. That changed when I watched some quarterly unboxing videos and decided I would try it out and see how I liked it.
Quarterly Subscription box is not a monthly subscription but like the name suggest it is quarterly. They have several different types of boxes like food, fitness, DIY and of course books. They offer two types of book boxes fiction and YA fiction. I debated for a while on what box I was going to get because I like adult and ya fiction but in the end I opted for the fiction box.

It’s the end of May and this should have been posted at the beginning of the month but I guess better late than never. I shouldn’t even have bought books in April since I bought so many in March. Check out my March Book Haul if you missed it. At least I didn’t go over board, I only acquired seven books. Two books I wasn’t expecting to receive until May but my pre-order came early which was exciting. I also received one book as a gift from my niece.
When I came home from work one day this package was waiting for me at my door and when I opened it was ACOWAR and King’s Cage. I was super excited to get my hands on this early even though I still have yet to read it.
I pre-ordered this book back in January and then in April I was looking on Chapters again and noticed that they had this exclusive Indigo edition with fan art on the end pages. So I had to get that edition instead and cancelled my first order and ended up getting this exclusive edition for cheaper than if I had order the other copy.

In March I broke down and bought so many books, 45 to be exact. I was trying not to buy books until I had read 50 books. Then BookOutlet was having a sale plus free shipping and I couldn’t resist. I now probably have 200 books that are unread on my shelves. Gulp. One day I will read them all, one day. After this I think I am going to have to go on a book buying ban.

Hello Book Lovers,
I didn’t actually buy any books in January, these are the books that I purchased from BookOutlet for the Boxing Day sale but I didn’t receive them until January and since I am not purchasing books for a while I figured I would wait to haul them until now. I ended up purchasing 18 books, I will try to make this post short. So lets just get on with the book haul. Continue reading “January Book Haul”
I was on BookOutlet strolling through my wish-list, not looking to buy anything right away but just planning on what I wanted to get for the Boxing Day Sale and I noticed they had Winter by Marissa Meyer in-stock. Last time I waited to get Winter just before a sale on BookOutlet and they ended up being sold out by that time. So, I didn’t want a repeat of that happening and so I made an order.
Winter is the fourth and final book in the Lunar Chronicles and I love this series. They are entertaining and have such wonderful characters. The Lunar Chronicles are retellings of fairy tales, Winter being a retelling of Snow White. I can’t wait to start reading Winter and see how the book ends. Continue reading “December Book Haul”
Hello, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Today, I am going to share the books I bought at Chapters with the gift card I received for Christmas. Chapters was having their annual sale, 30% off all Hardcovers. I ended up getting 4 hardcovers 30% off and the rest of my books were from the bargain book section, my favourite section at Chapters.
I have read this book before but I don’t own a physical copy, just the e-version. I love this book and it is one of my all time favourite books. They came out with this Special Anniversary Edition this year and have been wanting it since then. They didn’t have any copies left at the two stores near me so I had to travel across the city to get this but was happy to do it because it is such a beautiful edition. I look forward to rereading this book next year. Continue reading “Christmas Book Haul”
Today, I have a thrifty book haul for you, I went to my local Salvation Army Thrift Store to see if they had any books that I have been searching for. They didn’t have much selection which was slightly disappointing but they did have some books that I have been wanting for a while and I ended up picking up 6 books in total.
I was so happy when I found these because I have been waiting to read this series for quite some time. Although, these copies are bigger than my other ones I own now its ok I don’t think I will keep the series when I am done. Continue reading “Thrifty Finds Book Haul”
