February Book Haul

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.

February TBR

As a mood reader, I have typically always shied away from planning a ‘To Be Read’ predominantly because I can never stick to them (or post them more than halfway through the month). So it will be interesting at the end of the month to see if I have actually finished many, if any, of…
