LitJoy Crate Unboxing: Once Upon a Retelling (Feb 2020)

Welcome to a LitJoy Crate unboxing, friends! I don’t regularly subscribe to book boxes and have some rather conflicting thoughts about how much I adore them (would you want a discussion post on this?), but I am known to grab an occasional crate now and then when the theme tickles my fancy.

January Book Haul // Oops, I Did It Again

It’s time for another late haul! January saw a lot of books added to my shelves, much to my chagrin. What’s worse is that I read very little in February to make up for it. So many books, not enough time!

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.

Nope. Not one bit.)

Book Haul: November 2019

You know how time just gets away from you? I swear the months keep flying by and my haul posts keep going by the wayside. Unacceptable. This post was also supposed to go up yesterday, but surprise, I hadn’t written it yet. Oops. I was going to skip the post but really didn’t want to continue this habit of quarterly haul posts of doom, so here we are. December & January will be posted together next month.
