Hey Guys! Happy weekend!
My Hoarding Catastrophe is my version of a monthly book haul here on Olivia’s Catastrophe.
You may be wondering where my post for Thursday went. It doesn’t exist. Lately, I’ve been feeling a little of the blogging pressure and I didn’t feel like posting that day. So I reminded myself I didn’t have to by not doing it! Then I started to freak out on Friday, something along the lines of.
Me: What if my readers didn’t notice the missing post? What if no one actually cares. D:
Me: But what if they DID and they think I won’t post anymore?
Me: I’m such a bad blogger…
Me: Yep, never trying this tactic again.
Aaaaand onto the books now!
Physical books: As the title of this post suggests, my book buying ban was a SUCCESS! I didn’t buy a single book for the whole month. I’m so proud. This proves that if I do want to kick this obsession of hoarding and buying, I can. I got five lovely books, mostly for review.
Constructed of Magic – Alan Swartz
A Song to Tear The World Apart – Zan Romanoff
Briar Rose – Jana Oliver
The Boy in the Top Knot – Sathnam Sanghera
Freebies! I only allowed myself two because they looked too good to pass up.
Batter Up – Robyn Neeley
The Crown and the Arrow – Renee Adieh
Review Copies: My next aim in this book buying ban is to resist the one click request and request fewer reviewer copies. Because I honestly can’t help myself when it comes to doing this, because all these books sound so good all the time!
The Book of Esther – Emily Barton
Please Hold – Tricia Stewart Shiu
Love Blind – C. Desire & Jolene Perry
The View From Cheap Seats – Neil Gaiman
Strike – Delilah S. Dawson
Three Truths and a Lie – Brent Hartinger
A Night In With Marilyn Monroe – Lucy Holliday
A Hundred Thousand Worlds – Bob Proehl
Fates and Traitors – Jennifer Chiaverini
A Hundred Hours of Night – Anna Woltz
Black Widow – Christopher Brookmyre
All in Pieces – Suzanne Young
The After Party – Anton DiSclafani
