What a weird month this has been! I’ve been doing a ton of reading, but not a lot of book buying, which is probably for the best. However, I did still end up with some books this month so we’re going to do a quick and dirty haul for you today.
March has been such a weird freaking month and the temptation to do major retail therapy has been hard to avoid. However, the local bookstore is closed I’m pretty sure and my mail goes to a post office, so I’m trying to minimize my trips there and just being around people in general. However, I did end up buying some books this month and I also got a pre-order and my OwlCrate. So I have some books to talk about below the cut.
February has been an interesting month, but somewhat light on book purchasing for me. Other than my OwlCrate, I didn’t technically buy any books this month. My order from Amazon that came in was full of pre-orders and things purchased previously. I did buy some books for my classroom library through this cool event hosted by my school district, but I didn’t specifically pay for those. So like I said, an interesting month. Everything I got is listed below the cut.
This is another year where I set a resolution to read more of what I already own and to buy less books. However, I have to admit that I’m not doing so well on that resolution this far. There’s still time to get better at it…but we’ll see how it goes.
You’ll find everything I got in January below the cut:
One of my favourite series of this year was The Cruel Prince series. I loved and hated the characters. I loved the books. I was SO excited when I heard that Queen of Nothing was being published earlier than anticipated because the ending of The Wicked King had me angsting for the next book.
OwlCrate has been by my side for a most of the time that I’ve been really active in the bookish online community. It’s the subscription service that I get every month and I’m always so excited about it. To be clear, I purchase this every month and this is not an ad.
December is one of my favourite months of the year. I am a little biased though because it’s my birthday and it’s also Christmas. I really love Christmas time. It’s the perfect time to get cosy with a book, and it’s also really fun because people sometimes buy you books as presents. This month I have a pretty good haul. You’ll find it below the cut.
There were so many books I wanted to read in November but I was good! I only bought a few books for me, and then I got a few books for Christmas gifts.
October is not the traditional month to go crazy when buying things, but it is a month where I start to get more into the swing of the school year. Things get super busy and hectic and I get more stressed. In order to combat that stress, I tend to want to treat myself. I know that’s not sure healthy, but it did help make me feel a little better. That being said, I picked up a few cool books this month. You’ll find them below the cut!
September was such a light month for me when it comes to hauling books. There were a bunch of books that I wanted to buy but I did my best to restrain myself and I only let myself purchase two outside of my subscription boxes that I got. I haven’t been doing very well on my resolution of not buying as many books this year, but I’m doing way better than I did last year, so that’s a definitely a plus. Without further ado, let’s jump into what I got. You’ll find it under the cut.
