Hey Ho Bookaholics!
I went book shopping!! I don’t usually dedicate a day or a particular shopping trip to exclusively shop for books, but on Monday I splurged and bought a total of 13 books. I went with three other book loving friends who for the first time didn’t spend as much as me on books.
This haul may not seem that big but I did buy all of these books in one day, and I set myself a personal budget of $100; which with everything else I bought that day did not really stick.

I was sent a copy of The Edge Of Everything by Jeff Giles from Bloomsbury in December 2016, in exchange for an honest review prior to the release date.
Hey Ho Bookaholics!
Wow okay so I’m back from a crazy long break at not posting due to I work and planning/ packing for my holiday (which I am currently enjoying), but because it is Review Monday and I have missed two Review Monday’s in a row (shame on me) I am bringing to you a very special review.
This is a book that has absolutely captured – and kept a part of – my heart when I read it in the closing weeks of 2016. If you saw my Summer TBR post, you will know that I included it in my December TBR which I had no hope in finishing, though this was one of two novels I’d actually read, out of the total seven books I planned to read in the month.
It’s been a shattering year for seventeen-year-old Zoe, who’s still reeling from her father’s shockingly sudden death in a caving accident and her neighbors’ mysterious disappearance from their own home. Then on a terrifying sub-zero, blizzardy night in Montana, she and her brother are brutally attacked in a cabin in the woods–only to be rescued by a mysterious bounty hunter they call X.
X is no ordinary bounty hunter. He is from a hell called the Lowlands, sent to claim the soul of Zoe’s evil attacker and others like him. Forbidden to reveal himself to anyone other than his victims, X casts aside the Lowlands’ rules for Zoe. As X and Zoe learn more about their different worlds, they begin to question the past, their fate, and their future. But escaping the Lowlands and the ties that bind X might mean the ultimate sacrifice for both of them.

Welcome back Bookaholics!
This post, as the title suggests is going to be all about the books I purchased this September, and in the last few days of August, because I have somehow accumulated more than usual.
This is my second post in two days! Wow, you guys are lucky. I hope you all liked the Asgardian Book Tag I created for the upcoming Magnus Chase novel, which was posted yesterday. I would love if you all took the time to do the tag – or even just have a look through it. I’d also like to apologise for the weird timing of this post as it is deviating from my usual Monday posting time of 4:00. I hope you can forgive me. Now that my little babble is over, without further ado, let’s dive into my September Book Haul!
