September Book Haul || The Month Where I Didn’t Spend A Dime

This September book haul makes me exceedingly happy. 

If only because it made my wallet happy. If you are a storyteller/regular here on Fictionally Sam, you would know that for the past four-ish months I have been on a Captureserious book buying ban. To which, with the exception of one slip up in July, I’ve been pretty solid at keeping it! My friends over on Bookish Collision Discord Server (click the link to join the fun!) has really been a huge help and accountability partners during this voluntary dry spell, with a huge shout out to Ruby @ Ruby’s Books for keeping me on track, cheering me on, enabling my freebie ways, and being an overall gem.

Last month was the first month since the beginning of my ban that I did not have any pre-orders. Because of this, my haul finally reflects the state of my freebie obsession (which depending on your perspective can be seen as a good or bad thing). If kindles had a TLC show and could talk, mine would most definitely be on an episode of hoarders…

With that said, take a look at my walk of shamelessness!
