So Long, Summer! | Book Haul


It’s that time of year again, when students trade in their sunglasses and flip-flops for notebooks and backpacks. While the majority of my book budget has been devoted to purchasing textbooks recently, I have managed to acquire some other lovely books in the month of August.


Emma by Jane Austen

I picked this book up on a whim at my local independent bookshop because I simply could not resist the gorgeous cover. This is the Penguin Threads edition, which means that it looks and feels like the outside is embroidered. I also own a copy of Little Women in this edition. I’ve been feeling the itch to read more Jane Austen lately, so I can’t wait to dive into this one at some point.


Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne

To be honest, I went back and forth so much about whether or not I even wanted to read this script in the first place. My hesitancy stemmed from a fear of being disappointed, and I must admit that I ultimately was let down a bit. While I don’t necessarily regret reading this, I think I could have lived without doing so. It didn’t really add anything of value to the Harry Potter world for me, despite how badly I wanted to fall in love with the story.

I was so happy to find out that I won a copy of this book in a recent giveaway over at Happy Indulgence. Time travel, romance, history, and futuristic settings? This sounds like something I will love! Thanks again, Jenna!

Have you acquired any books recently? What do you think of the books in this haul? Let me know in the comments section below!

  5. I’ve acquired quite a few books recently. It involves cutting out any and all social outings for the month of September but I’d say t was totally worth it. That cover of Emma is adorable! Congrats on the giveaway win!


  6. Thats a great month. That Emma is so good. Glad the internship went good. And I love 100 years of solitude as well


  7. I read The Next Together earlier in the year and it was fantastic! I am so excited for the sequel which comes out soon. I hope that you enjoy it when you get to it. I haven’t bought any books recently because I am trying really hard to cut down on my spending. I am using all my will power to not buy all the books!
