Haul Posts

Rewind: Haul Post


So for those of you who don’t know prior to this blog I used to blog under the same name on blogger (it now redirects here so, sorry, but you can’t check it out) from 2011.

I thought it would be interesting to go back and view my first ever haul posts to see what books I got and whether or not I ever read them.

Oh this is old. Way back before all the drama so prior to me taking part in Talk Supes’ Bought, Borrowed, and Bagged.

“This week has been a slow week for books arriving and as most of the books I get will be ones I have ordered myself, or received as presents I can’t see their ever being more than one or two. On Tuesday I received Junji Ito’s Uzumaki Vol 1 (second hand) from Amazon, I read it straight away and couldn’t put it down (a review is to come later).”

So first haul post was a success! I read it straight away. The first cover above was what I originally had, I’ve since gifted this to a friend (with a book voucher inside too) and have purchased the Deluxe 3-in-1 edition – which can also be seen in my vlog here.

Specifically for this post I’ve also copied over my original review of Uzumaki because I still love it to bits and have read the full series twice now.

Wow, I expected to have done really badly here but next up we have Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and The Redbreast. I’ve read, seen the movie, and done a comparison review of the first. The second however, not so much. I do still own both of these books though. Should I bump The Redbreast up my to be read pile?

I know 100% why I purchased The Redbreast and I also know why I’ve not read it. Back in 2011 I was obsessed with Stieg Larsson’s work and I had in my head that yes every Swedish author will steal my heart the way Larsson did with Lisbeth. But I was also just as scared that The Redbreast wouldn’t live up to the hype I’d built up for it. Added to this I believe its also not the first in the series… As I did with Uzumaki, here is my original review of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Have you read all your books you’ve hauled since blogging?
