December Book Haul // Self Control win?
I still cannot believe that December’s come and gone and we are more than one week into 2019! After my going overboard during Black Friday sales in November (and thankfully not many anticipated releases for December), this haul is significantly smaller and consisting mostly of previously released titles that I hadn’t picked up yet. In 2019 I want to focus on my owned TBR and am hoping to schedule a couple of buddy reads a month to keep my reading more balanced between backlist and frontlist. Expect a post on this very soon!
Before I get into the haul, 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.
