July ’18 Wrap-up and Book Haul!

I can’t believe August is already here! I feel like I say that every time a new month begins, but it’s true! It just seems we’re on the downward slope of 2018 (which is also a crazy thought)!

I was on summer break for the month of July, and finished the month with a impressive end count, if I do say so myself. I actually posted a lot of the July as well, which is also great because who knows where it’ll go from here!

June ’18 Wrap-up and Book Haul!

I think I’m s l o w l y making my way back into blogging, but just–erm, S L O W L Y as I said before. Since I’m on summer break, I’ve already got a few blog posts in mind, along with a schedule as well, so we’ll see how this month goes. 🙂

But that also means I have time to post a wrap-up and book haul for June! I can’t remember if I posted one for May but… It’s too late for that now, lol.

April’s Wrap-Up and Book Haul!

Another month in 2018 gone already! I can’t believe it! I’ve just got two more months of work until I’m on summer break, too. (Yes, I’m already counting down the days, so sue me. 😛 )

But that’s not what we’re here to talk about, is it?! I knew April would be fairly “good” in terms of book buying, especially with the North Texas Teen Book Festival just a couple of weeks ago. I won’t be quite as generous this month (my wallet will thank me), but there are two signings I plan to go during this month, and I’ve already pre-ordered two books for that event so…yeah. 🙂

March Wrap-Up and Book Haul!

Will there ever be a time I stop saying “Better late than never”? Maybe…but today is not that day! 🙂

March was quite a surprise. I was on spring break, so I reread one of my favorite series. I also did a reread (re-listen via the audiobook?) of the first book in the Shatter Me series in prep for the release of Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi. I only recently started listening to Unravel Me so…my reread is going quite well… Haha. 😅

So far April isn’t looking bad either, but I’ve already DNFed a book, the first this year. I’ve got a bunch of eARCs to read, too, and I’m trying to focus on reading books from my own shelves instead of the library. Um, right.

February Wrap-up & Book Haul!

Per usual I’m a little late posting this but… At least, it’s better than nothing, right? 😅

February was actually a slow month for me. I was doing (am still doing, actually) some heavy editing and revising with my own book, so I didn’t care too much for reading. Audiobooks are seriously a lifesaver, though. I also read a few eARCs this month, so I’ve been slowly checking off books from my semi-made TBR for February. March is looking pretty similar, to be quite honest… 😶

January 2018 Wrap-Up & Book Haul!

What a fun beginning to the new year! I can’t believe January is already over! I felt like it just started!

Anyway, this was a fun month for me. I celebrated my 29th birthday by buying books! Okay, well, I bought myself one book and the rest were bought with gift cards or were given to me as gifts! And I actually surprised myself by reading my normal average number of books. I doubt I’ll do so well the rest of the months due to personal issues and a general hiatus I plan on taking (more on that in a later post).

December 2017 Wrap-Up & Book Haul!

Hellooooo! I’m incredibly behind in posting December’s wrap-up and book haul but late is better than never, right? 😉

Anyway, I only bought one book in December. Since it was Christmas, I wanted to spend money on gifts for my friends and family than spending it on myself. Surprisingly enough, I don’t get a lot (if any) books for Christmas, which is fine since I have some many on my shelves that need to be read anyway!

However, I did buy one book at the end of December! I might spoil myself a bit for January since it’s my birthday month, and I have a $5 coupon to Half-Price Books I need to use before the end of the month…

November Wrap-Up & Book Haul!

How is it already December?! Seriously, someone answer this for me. That just means Christmas is only weeks away, and so is 2018! It’s crazy how slow yet how quickly the days go by. I didn’t know if I’d ever get here!

Anyway, though I was supposed to be on a book buying ban due to the holidays, November is the torturous month where there are a lot of holiday sales and coupons. I also traded books and that’s why this month’s haul looks so huge.

Let’s start with a recap though…

October Book Haul & Wrap-up!

Another month down! I can’t believe it. Only two more months until the new year! How did that happen?! I’m always amazed at how quickly yet sometimes slowly the months go by, haha.

In terms of books, this month was fairly good. I was on a book buying ban because of Oklahoma Teen Book Con a few weeks ago. (I write a post about that soon, I promise.) A local bookstore partnered with the con, so I bought all the books at full price (which I normally don’t do). Along with just trying to be more financially aware, I didn’t buy as many books as I usually would. The library has always been my dearest friend, but now it’s even more so, haha.
