April Wrap Up & Haul

Another late wrap up and haul post!  But still, I will not be stopped in putting up some pretty pictures of books I read and acquired in the month of April, so let’s get to it!

Wrap Up

I was a reading machine in April!  I really discovered how much I enjoy taking baths, and have since discovered that by reading in the tub, I can knock out an extra three books a month. Plus, I was speed reading ACOTAR and ACOMAF in preparation for A Court of Wings and Ruin (thank god I did that), so that padded my April list as well.

March Wrap Up & Haul!

img_9682THIS IS SO LATE AND IT’S EMBARRASSING!  But, I still wanted to post about the books that I read and acquired in March, so I just went for it… 14 days late.  But come on, who doesn’t love looking at a good stack of books no matter what time of the month it is?

February Wrap Up & Haul!

For being the shortest month of the year, February dragged on and on for me.  It started out on a bad note with me being sick, and then all of a sudden, I wasn’t in the mood to read at all.  img_9104Instead, I spent most of my nights watching my boyfriend play video games, and messing around on my iPad.

At first, I felt guilty about it: so many books to read, so little time right!?  But its okay to have sub par reading months, just as its okay to have amazing reading months.  This is a past time, a pleasure hobby, not a job.  I can read as much or as little as I want; it’s my time and I certainly am not getting paid to read and review books.

Anyways, I just wanted to go on that mini rant and let anyone know that if they are feeling down on themselves for being in a reading slump, everything is going to be okay.  Sometimes we need a little break.

August Haul!

Don’t you all just love a good book haul? I may have gone a little overboard this month with my book buying, but I say that every month I decide to place an order with Book Outlet. (By the way, if you have never shopped at Book Outlet, you need to change this immediately. It is a fantastic way to build up your library for relatively cheap.)

Also, I buy books whenever I am sad, and this month had a few downs. But since there is nothing sad about book hauls, let’s get to the goods! Continue reading “August Haul!”

July Haul and Wrap Up!

A combo post?! *GASP* But you see, I have my reasons, which I will list here.

  1. I didn’t haul an enormous amount of books like I did last month, so it wasn’t deserving of its own post.
  2. I am incredible at the art of procrastination, and it seems that if I make two separate posts, my July Wrap Up won’t be posted until September 15th or something ridiculous like that.
  3. It’s my blog and I can do what I want.

img_3974I told my boyfriend on June 30th, that I didn’t want to buy more than 5 books in July.  Because, well, I have run out of bookshelf space and am now stacking books underneath the window on my side of the bed.  He laughed at me, said there was NO way I was only going to be able to buy 5 books.  And so we started negotiating.  He said any book that came in a subscription box counted.  I countered with a “no way José, I’m not choosing the book, and book boxes are about the experience anyway”.  Anyways, to summarize a two-week ongoing argument: he won.

So here is my meager July Haul, which I am actually kind of proud of!  Not pictured is Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, because I took this picture before I went to the midnight party naturally.  Yes, I am aware it is more than 5 books, but not much more!  I think I was pretty well-behaved with book buying.
