September 2022 book haul

Hello friends!! Welcome to the September 2022 book haul!! A post where I talk about all the books that I bought and received in the previous month.

We’re sitting at an amazingly low FOUR physical books for September, which is miles ahead of the 10 books in August AND the 17 books in July. However… I may have gone overboard with ebooks instead?!!

This year there won’t be any shaming for buying excess than my haul goals. In saying that, my haul goals this year are to only buy books I will read immediately, so that’s a step in the right direction. The main goal for the year, is to buy less books than I read. I’m trying not to increase my TBR this year. And, as per my now-normal, there is a round up of TBR increase/decrease at the end.

So, let’s go see the books I hauled in September!!

September 2022 book haul

Book haul categories are as follows:

  • book boxes (monthly/quarterly subscription or special edition book boxes)
  • review copies (book mail, digital and gifts)
  • book purchases (book mail, in-store and ebook*)

* Not counting Kindle Unlimited

book boxes

I subscribe to a bunch of book boxes that I usually skip because 2022 is the year of cutting back.

In September, I had zero books arrive. I am waiting on my FairyLoot adult and YA (book only) subs for September to arrive at some point in October.

book purchases

During September, I bought three physical books, nine ebooks, and received one physical book as a gift from a friend (who found an ARC copy of a Maggie book in a second hand store *gasp*).

So… what does this all mean for my book buying limit for 2022? Well, because I apparently can’t count at all, I made a new row on my giant TBR spreadsheet to figure it out for me. I also unhauled a LOT of books in August. Most of them I had read, but some I decided I was no longer interested in. So, the numbers now stand at:

  • Commenced 2022 with physical TBR: 455
  • Increased physical TBR in 2022 by: 50
  • Subtotal physical TBR: 505
  • Read physical books: 26 (ooft… this did not move from August… 😓)
  • Unhauled physical books: 39
  • TOTAL PHYSICAL TBR: 440
  • TBR variance: -10

My secret aim is to get my physical unread books down to 400, but I’ll be happy if I can keep it below 450 which is my real goal!!

What was in your September 2022 book haul?

until next time, happy reading! Meeghan xo
