March Book Haul || The Month I Forgot What Self-Control Was

Capture
Proof I lost the self-control I gained

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.

February Book Haul || The Month I Began To Learn Self-Control

I am learning folks!

Capture
proof of me learning self-control

In the month of February it seems I learned what the word self-control was, because my lot size diminished from January’s by a whopping six books! Which is shocking cause Barnes and Noble had that huge 50% off sale, and ya girl was HERE for it. Nothing like a nice waddle through retail therapy to help soothe the struggle episodes of depression. 10/10 fam.
