Book Haul Revisited // September & October 2018

For those of you who are unfamiliar with my second-longest running video series on Youtube (the longest running being my weekly reading wrap-ups!), my Book Haul Revisited series is an attempt to ensure that I read all of the books I acquire within twelve months.

There are no hard and fast rules with this little experiment – if I don’t read the books I’m not necessarily going to unhaul them – but it does get me to really question whether or not I’m still interested in the books I bought 12 months ago, or whether it’s time to let them go to a new home. (But who am I kidding? I mostly force myself to read them, right?)

This video and blog post is my book haul revisited from September and October 2018, and over 40 books entered my life during those two months. Which is, admittedly, a lot of books. The good news? I’ve actually read the majority of them. To get all the details, watch the video above, and if you want more information about the books mentioned in the video scroll down for links for each one.
