February Book Haul

Feb Haul 1a

In February I hauled *whispers quietly* 19 books. I set myself the goal to try and cut down on my book buying at the start of 2019, which unfortunately was after I had already pre-ordered a ridiculous number of January, February and March releases. So, of those 19 books, only 4 were actively purchased in February, and the remainder were from pre-orders or from my subscription boxes. (Yes, I am making excuses for the fact I have no self-control).

18 books were purchased, (1 was a free bonus book), therefore I will need to read 36 books as per my proposed challenge earlier this year to make up for my purchases. I also owe January 26 books, meaning 62 books outstanding. This month I read 11 books, taking me down to 51 books outstanding. Yes, chances are that I will fail on this challenge in 2019, but I intend to keep track of it.

    I just received my BooksNBeyond subscription box and it has The Binding hardback in it and omg! I’m so psyched to finally get my hands on it. I can’t want to read it. Also, I so understand what you mean! It’s hard to refrain yourself from buying books, especially with the kind of amazing releases there have been so far. I look forward to reading more of your posts and do check out my blog as well. Have a great day/night! 🙂


    1. I haven’t had chance to read it yet, but it is definitely taunting me to do so! (The cover is just so beautiful). I hope you enjoy it. Books are definitely my personal treat item, and individually they aren’t that expensive so it is easy to get carried award. Thank you very much 🙂 And I will make sure to check your blog out.
