My Hoarding Catastrophe – New Goals!

My Hoarding Catastrophe – New Goals!

Hello there!

My Hoarding Catastrophe is my version of a book haul here on Olivia’s Catastrophe where I talk about the latest bookish purchases I have gotten for this month!

To start with I would just like to mention the new goal I have set myself for the coming year of 2016. I decided on this goal because I just finished my 100 book challenge for this year (YAY) and am near the end of my other 2015 reading challenge where I had books to choose for each category. So I started to think of the year ahead and decided that even though my physical TBR has more than 100 books right now, I want to have none left by the end of 2016! Of course, for that to happen I still have a few months before beginning where I can start burning through as many of those books as possible. And it would also mean that I would need to be BUYING LESS. I am so doing this. And fewer ebooks too because next year my main focus is on physical books. 

I’ve been trying to limit the books I have been requesting and buying. This month I have very few physical books and also have been a whole week without requesting. Nonetheless… I still have quite a few from before I made that decision…

Physical Books: This month I bought two new movies which were The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Insurgent which I cannot wait to watch! I also got two bottles of nail polish which were colours I need more of from the NYC collection. I have really wanted a book bag for a while so instead of getting a book I got an Eat Sleep Read Repeat tote bag! I am thinking channeling book money into bookish items instead would be a good idea. And of the four (very few!) physical books I only bought ONE!

Shadow and Bone – Leigh Bardugo
Retaliation – T.L. Coulter (Giveaway win)
Taking Leaps and Finding Ghosts – Janet DeLee (For review)
The Dragon of the Month Club – Iain Reading (For review)
Freebies! There were two books I just couldn’t resist! Although I did resist quite a few more. Man, those freebie emails that get sent to my email daily are such a temptation…
Man of Steel – Dave Conifer 
Hollywood Games – MZ Kelly

Giveaway Wins! I did win a $20 giftcard from a tour but I have yet to spend that… I won these books but I am not sure from which blog πŸ™ I have the first book in the series so I am looking forward to getting to the rest.
