March Book Haul || The Month I Forgot What Self-Control Was
I honestly don’t know what happened…
One minute I was planning accordingly what I was going to get this month and the next thing I know, I am staring at a trove of books and a sobbing bank account in the corner rocking itself back and forth.
I went overboard in March on books. I knew I was going to be spending more on books than usual as TeenBookCon was happening and I waddle out of there with a new stash of greatness, but wow March was also painted with B&N sales and awesome finds at my local Half Price that I literally could not pass up.
As always, before I get into the bounty of which my kindle and shelves cry out to in joy, let me preface this with I am a super frugal and hella cheap person. Most–if not all– of my purchases were deals from bookbub.com, amazon, audible, etc. which amounted to many of them being free, as well as through my carefully thought out monthly book budget as I have placed reading and supporting authors and the arts a priority when planning my personal finances. With that being said, take a look at my walk of shamelessness.

So I kind of forgot what self control was in March and went batshit crazy in the book department. Which is fine for me–just not for my wallet. Oops. . Most of the books I got in March were from/for @teenbookcon (WHICH WAS AMAZING AND I MET SO MANY LEGENDS THERE! LIKE WOW A TIME) so I knew March's haul was gonna be a biggie, but I didn't expect it to be THIS big. According to my spreadsheet, I bought 45 books and e-books combined 😲 . I don't know whether to be shocked or impressed…🤔 . So #QOTD: What is the largest amount of books you ever bought/recieved? . . #booksbooksbooks #booksofinstagram #fictionallysam #readinggoals #bookhaul #march #teenbookcon #readingaddiction #bookstagram #bookaddict #youngadult #romance #bookworm #bookaholic #reading
