Per usual, I’m always late to post my book hauls. 😂 But hey, something is better than nothing, right? (At least, that’s what they say…)
I think I say this often, but I never really know how many books I buy until I stack them all together for a book haul IG pic or to write a post like this. Well, it hasn’t been too bad this month, and I’m really trying to keep the book hauls on the lower number side since my shelves are starting to get way out of hand. But…what’s new there? Haha.
May was a slow month for me. I’m not complaining, trust me. A while ago, I stopped posting on my bookstagram every day, which relieved me to no end. I feel as if I can finally enjoy that community again without the pressures of competing against bigger, better accounts. Anyway, that’s it’s own story.
Because of that, I’ve read a little slower and didn’t buy as many books. Well, that isn’t really the main reason… Most of it stems from ~adulting~ (I mean, I just paid hundreds of dollars to get brand new tires for my car! Bleh!) and saving for vacation next month since I’ll be on summer break.
Well, this might have been a relatively slow month for me in terms of reading and even buying books. I had to put myself on semi-small ban in April because it was my husband’s birthday and we celebrated our anniversary toward the end of the month, too. I was doing fairly well until–well, until the end of the month. 😛
Oh my goodness, guys. You know, it doesn’t seem like I’ve bought a lot of books in March, and I felt as if I’ve read even less, but wow, I put them all together and… Well… ^_^’
(I’m so happy I’ve remembered to write these posts! 😛 )
I don’t know why I don’t do more of these blog posts more often… I think I may have started but for some reason or whatever, I never continued… 😛
I turned 28 in January, meaning I gave myself free reign to buy whatever books I wanted. Within financial limits, of course. We saw some amazing book releases in January, and it’s only the beginning of year with 11 more months of amazing books! 😮
I don’t think I’ve done a book haul or a TBR in a while and I’m nearly positive I haven’t done a “books read” for a certain month. Since I haven’t finished my current read in time to post a review, I thought I’d just shake things up a bit. XD
I’m so proud of myself for reading the books on my shelf. It sounds silly but the library and all the new books that have come out over the past few months haven’t given me a chance to read the books I actually own! And I’m actually trying to read books on my shelf so I can sift through them and determine which ones are worth keeping and others…not.
Ah, okay, so I should really start making monthly book hauls. I tell myself not to buy any more books but it’s hard to resist going into any store, seeing something you want, and then not buy it. Besides…it’s there…and it’s 50% off? I mean, c’mon. We all know I love deals. 😀 But even more so when it comes to books!
One of my favorite book stores (Half-Price Books) was having a Memorial Day sale of 20% off your entire purchase. Hastings also had a Memorial Day sale where if you buy 1 used book, you got 2 for $1 each. I mean, I couldn’t resist that really and I just found some great deals! It was a great weekend for books! 🙂 (I mean, what’s not a great weekend for books, really?)
I find it harder to post a weekly book haul than it is to do a sort of semi-monthly one so… Here’s some of the books I’ve gotten in the past month or so. If you follow me on Instagram, I post about it frequently because it’s just easier to snap a pic and then post it. That probably sounds like I’m neglecting my blog but I’m not. XD I’m brainstorming ideas about what to blog about while juggling work, my family, trying to find time to read, and also working on my novel (which is surprisingly getting somewhere! Maybe I should blog about that too…)
Any who, here we go! 🙂
