I can’t quite make up my mind on how I want to do Hauls. I generally go weeks/months without getting anything then all of a sudden I get a ton of books. So doing it monthly would be a hit or miss gamble. I originally wanted to do a Quarterly thing (which honestly, I might still do.) but I felt like that haul might be massive. My previously hauled books from January can be seen here.
Advanced Reader Copies / Review Copies
I’ve gotten over my fear for Edelweiss and finally gave them a try after not using them for over two years. The Edelweiss Plus site is a lot easier to navigate but it’s still a lot harder then Netgalley. (I think it also helped that now that I have been blogging for over two years and have more to show for it I’m more likely to be approved. ) A few of these are from 2016 that were sent to me for review and some 2017’s that were sent last minute and are already published. Guess I got my work cut out for me! Thankfully I’ve been averaging about a book a day.

None, surprisingly. My bookshelves are becoming pretty crowded so until I donate some more I’m only buying ebooks unless its a book I really want. Stay tuned for a giveaway probably within the month to help clean my shelves out.
I’ve been reading a lot of lesser known books in between ARCs so I don’t get burnt out on one particular genre. Plus it’s nice to read something that isn’t super hyped up. Here are a few I purchased recently.
