September through November Book Haul

I have not made a book haul since August. I promised them every month, but also since starting this blog I have gone on a book buying ban. I am just going to put it out there that I wasn't refraining from making a book haul because I haven't been buying books. It has completely been because I didn't want to take the pictures with my iPod, then email them to myself. Because that is who I am. I dread taking ten minutes, and taking and sending pictures. But I did make a book haul. I took the five minutes to find the books, sort the books, picture the books, and send the pictures of the books. I did that, and it was very easy. I am just incredibly lazy.
Anyway, I am going to be showing you all the beautiful books now because they are very beautiful, and deserve to be shared.
From Used Book Stores:
Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut (currently reading. review should be up soon)
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan (I already own this one, but this is the original cover and I saw it for cheap at an antique mall, so I had to buy it.)
Watership Down by Richard Adams (My mother's most hated book. I had to see why she hated it.)
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson (I had the other two, I was waiting to find this ones in paperback. Also, note the reflection of me taking the picture :/)

Won from Various Places:
Stone in the Sky by Cecil Castellucci (Twitter giveaway)
Arson by Estevan Vega (Blog giveaway)
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah (Goodreads giveaway)
How to Make Your Baby an Internet Celebrity by Rick Chillot (Library Thing giveaway)
The Beetle and Me by Karen Romano Young (Library Thing giveaway)
Earth and Sky by Megan Crewe (Twitter Giveaway)

Purchased from Book Outlet:
This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales (review is posted)
The Tinker King
The Unnaturalists both by Tiffany Trent
The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

Purchased from Wherever:
In the Afterlight by Alexandra Bracken (Review posted)
The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan

Received for Review (all reviews have been posted):
The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord
Me Being Me Is Exactly As Insane as You Being You by Todd Hasak-Lowy
5 to 1 by Holly Bodger
Unleashed by Sophie Jordan
Art Schooled by Jamie Coe

Okay that is all the books I've accumulated in three months. I have to say that my ban has been pretty successful because I only actually bought one book (Blood of Olympus) because I preordered ITA in February, and everything else was either sent for review (legal), won (legal), or got from a used bookstore (legal). And I have read enough books to where I could purchase that one book. So I have been super legal these last few months.
