March Book Haul

Guys…. woah. What did I do? I went a little crazy is what I did.

Remember my 2018 Reader Goals? When I said I didn’t want to put myself on a book buying ban…. oh I’m going on a ban!

No more buying books until I’ve read or gotten rid of the books I already have!!!

This is literally me.

I didn’t even remember all the books I bought this month! I forgot to include my first book purchase of March in that larger than life stack of books!

I borrowed Wintersong by S Jae Jones from the library, and IMMEDIATELY upon finishing it I went to Barnes and Noble to buy my own copy and the sequel. I have not yet read Shadowsong. For shame. Shame!

My next splurge happened at Target. I bought 3 paperbacks: Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman, Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo, and The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli.

I hit up the used book store at not one, but TWO, different libraries… on at least three different occasions. And yes, yes I did buy the same book twice. Because I’m trash. Honestly, I maybe shouldn’t have bought the Southern Vampire Mystery books… but they were fifty cents each, and they’re such easy reads, and I enjoy them for the brain numbing urban fantasy smut they are… so yeah, I bought them.

And lastly… I TRIED to tell myself not to do it- to just drop off the bag of donations and drive away. But I did it. I went INTO Savers and I browsed those thrifty book shelves. I browsed them hard.

Buy 4 get 1 free means I leave with at least 10 books. Every time. But there are only 9 books there? My son picked a Disney Princess comic book collection and took it before I could get a picture. It’s adorable, trust me.

I also got this book from TJ Maxx last week:

Every Friday we do pizza and a movie or games. I thought it might be fun to include a page or two from this in our family nights. It’s full of prompts about things we like to do together, and nice things to say to each other, etc. I think it’s sweet. So I bought it. Because I’m a monster.


I showed zero self control. I have an addiction! Yikes!

How did you do? Did you splurge or save this month?

Happy Reading (and/or Shopping)!
