October Book Haul
It’s almost December and of course that means that it is the perfect time to look at the books I added to my collection in October. I will be honest and I’ve been hesitant to post this haul (hence it being posted at the end of November). I don’t want to give the impression that you need to buy and own a lot of books in order to be considered a book blogger or lover; I am just fortunate to be at a place in my life that I can afford to spend money on books. I am quite frugal with everything else so that I can buy them!
The majority of these books I got on BookOutlet for incredibly cheap, which stretches the money I set aside for books further. I am working on a post for finding bookish deals, but it will be awhile as I am looking for more international resources before posting it. But without further adieu, let’s see what I added to my shelves in October!

While on vacation in Vancouver, my best friend and I visited probably every independent bookshop in the city proper. Our goal was to find a book to buddy read together, which proved difficult in used bookshops. We finally found an Indigo (amazing, by the way! Canada you are lucky!) and settled on Vox. I also couldn’t leave without buying this special hardback with shiny silver sprayed edges of American Gods and Anansi Boys… who cares if I already own both of them?
