All Booked

Hi bookish fans! Here is my January book haul! I hadn’t purchased books in quite a while prior to this so while it felt like a lot at first I remembered that I have held off on buying books for months. I’m also trying to be more picky about the books I choose when buying so I don’t keep stacking my shelves when most of my books are currently TBR or re-reads I have planned. Enjoy!

Hello 🙂

How is everyone this weekend?

I have to be honest. I had a real problem last year with book buying. I believe the majority of my time was spent on buying books which resulted in my oversized library of now more than 200+ physical books. Once I started school in the spring and I had no time to even breathe I stopped buying books. Read More

Hello blog world!

I feel silly for posting anything since I’m so far behind on reading and it’s really disappointing, but I genuinely enjoy writing here even if I don’t do it as often as I’d like.

Last month I tried REALLY hard to avoid buying too many books because I knew I wasn’t going to be able to read nearly as many as usual. However, my hands cannot be stopped when I see a book I want – they just grab and my body moves towards the checkout line. So, without further ado my small but lovely book haul:

Digging into the second part of my October Book Haul! I am really excited, however I then take a moment to realize there is just no way to read all the books on my TBR list as well as all the books I continue to binge-buy. So, I’ve really been trying to reel myself in on book buying. I should be reading as many as I buy. Ha. Ha. Ha. Sure. Maybe in my next life. So here is the second part of my list!

I mentioned in my last post that I may have gone WAY overboard last month when it comes to buying book. I actually almost went a little crazy when I would think of stopping by a thrift store. My palms would get a little sweaty and my heart would begin to race. Yes. My name is Christine. I have a book problem. Anyway – before going any further in this post be warned I am banning you from judging my eagerness to snatch up too many books within a 31 day period. Got it? Good.
