January 2019 Book Haul // the month I kind of behaved

Friends I am so incredibly proud of myself – I only bought five books in January, and two of them were the same book! This is such a drastic improvement over my going completely overboard last year, and I am pleased that the majority of my haul was on sale.

You’ll notice that my haul post is in a slightly different format this month. I wanted to play around with it a bit and include the summaries from Goodreads rather than just listing everything. I also included ARC approvals so you can see what I have coming up, as well as the books that I told my local library they should buy. I recently started using my local library a bit more and have made it my personal mission to get more amazing and diverse reads into the collection!

As always, I want to reiterate that you do not need to buy and own a lot of books in order to be considered a book blogger or lover. I am quite frugal with everything else so that I can buy books because I love them, but I do not ever want to make you feel bad if you cannot afford to buy books or have poor access where you live.
