My Hoarding Catastrophe is a meme here that I use for my personal book haul. I know, we recently had one of these. But well, here’s another one! You can never have too many books after all…
Book buying ban… active! I’m going to be going on a book buying ban until summer, I think. I need to spend my money elsewhere and save because I want to travel again, and I bought tickets to a concert which I will be mentioning more in the future… hopefully!
I bought Siege and Storm as well as Ruin and Rising by Leigh Burdago because I enjoyed book one so much last month and wanted to continue buddy reading. I got it with a giftcard I won @ Crossroad Reviews. I ACCIDENTLY bought the hardcovers. Am I complaining? Nope, not me at all. Because they are gorgeous 😀 Also, the majority of that swag was a package I won from Crossroads Reviews again!
My book club Owls Be Reading has a recommend page where they can choose potential books of the month. They mentioned The Alchemist, spelled that way. They also mentioned The Alchemyst, spelled that way. And no one mentioned an author, so I didn’t know which they meant! Instead of simply asking like a normal human being I took that as an excuse to buy both The Alchemist by Paul Coelho and The Alchemyst by Michael Scott.
I won Alice in Wonderland on instagram from @ Newleafwriter with a brilliant necklace that comes from @ Authored Adornments. Into the Dim by Janet B Taylor was a giveaway win from Houghton Miffin. I also got Tesserae by Mathias Freese and My Sweet Vidalia by Deborah Mantella for review!
Review Copies: To be fair, after last month’s haul I decided that the amount of books I had to review was ridiculous and I was going to cut back. You might have noticed because ALL my posts this month have been review after review. But guess what? The day I make the decision a bunch of approvals come through for twenty one books I requested a while ago but didn’t hear back from. Oh well, I guess I will be cutting down on this number for the coming month…
