Someone bought a lot of books... But I'm so happy about all of them! They're either signed or books I've been pining for when I was such a newbie blogger. (Ultraviolet!! Gillian Flynn's books!!) Sorry for not including my ebook haul ever but you'd take a pity on me and my lack of self-control because I can't help but download and request egalleys. Hahahuhu. Anyway, this large haul would not have been possible without these people:

Thank you to Putnam Juvenile, JKS Communications, Headline UK, Tor Teen, Hachette Children's Books, Hot Key Books, Mindee Arnett, Kai of Amaterasu Reads, Becca Fitzpatrick for the Black Ice ARC (I almost cried), Elizabeth Fama (My love for you and your books is as deep as the Marianas trench and as vast as the Milky Way), my parents, Nina of The Bookish Confections, Kate Evangelista, Mina V. Esguerra, my wallet that's whining on how much I spend on books, Book Sale, Fully Booked, Kristen Simmons, Ingrid Jonach and Kari Luna! And to HarperCollins and its imprints, Harlequin Teen, Egmont USA, Sourcebooks Fire and all the publishers granting me egalleys from Edelweiss and NetGalley. You drown me but I love you for it and I hate myself for requesting. Hee.

Lastly, thank you so much (to Uranus and back) to National Book Store for bringing Becca Fitzpatrick, Veronica Rossi, Tahereh Mafi and Ransom Riggs to the Philippines! I just can't express my gratitude enough as all the exclamation marks will never be enough.

Come show your haul! Just leave a link at the comments section and I'll check them out! Follow me on Instagram too at oopsireadabookagain to see more bookish photos!

    1. Tammy, I know! My wallet is dying because of all the books I bought. I admit to freaking out when I got The Mission and if it weren't for my busy schedule, I would have read it immediately. I can't wait for my schedule to free up so I can finally read it EEEEPPP!!! Thank you for stopping by!

    1. Hi Julie! I got my books signed when Becca Fitzpatrick, Veronica Rossi, Tahereh Mafi and Ransom Riggs went here. Didn't you go? I also went to Kate Evangelista's Til Death book launch and that's how I got a signed copy of Til Death and I also made Mina V. Esguerra sign my books since she was there too. Thanks for dropping by!

    2. (Argh! You're actually going to make me say it!) Kill me now because I haven't been to any book signing. Ever. Shame on me, I know! And they're such amazing authors. *sobs* (excuse me while I cry quietly in a corner)

    1. Yes, they're my prized possessions now. I just <3333. *incoherent* Yes, I think this is my biggest haul to date in terms of the books I bought. But then, this is for two months and to think I got my first paycheck that time, it's understandable. *justifying* Thanks for dropping by, Shane!

  5. I love you, too Dianne! And I like what you did there..."my love is as deep as the Marianas Trench" kind of blends MONSTROUS BEAUTY and PLUS ONE! :)
