Book Haul June 2015 [2]

6481-2So many books, so little time. 

June was filled with so many books that I wanted to do another book haul post to show you guys what I have added to my bookshelves. If you want to see the first part of my June book haul you can do so here.

If you have been following along with my blog you know that I can’t resist a great deal on books. I check my Amazon wishlist everyday to see if any of the bazillion (rough estimate) of books that I have on it have gone on sale. I am also always entering giveaways on Goodreads, Twitter and blogs. The majority of the books in this book haul were won on giveaways and the rest I bought when they went on sale on Amazon. I paid a total of $6.30 for all of the books in this book haul.
