My Hoarding Catastrophe is my monthly book haul here on Olivia’s Catastrophe. Today I’m going to be talking about all the fab things I got for the month of February.
First of all, I got this love #CurrentlyReading mug from Evie Bookish’s Society 6 store
! You should definitely check it out because I love it to pieces and absolutely adore it!
I got some lovely magnetic bookmarks which I won in a giveaway from Diane @ Fictionzeal
which I have already both used and added to my collection. Thanks Diane! And then I got two bookmarks just for being a member of The Young Writers Society
as well, which was truly epic.
Some books were birthday presents! I have a good friend who got me the Calvin and Hobbes so I can see why everyone loves them. And then I went to Paris recently and of course, splurged in Shakespeare and Co where my sister bought me one book as part of my present.
Two books were for review as well. I secretly adore my copy of Marked because I’ve always dreamed of having an ARC that looks like well… an ARC. I’ll basically be happy never receiving another one in my life now that I have this one!
