December Book Haul // What is shelf control?

I know last week I said I was going to post December & January’s haul together. Well, I lied. The more that I thought about it, the less that I wanted to do that. So I decided to post another haul post this month to get caught up because my blog, my rules. (The fact that my January haul might be a little out of control definitely has nothing to do with this. Nope. Not one bit.)
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.

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.

October Book Haul // I went a little overboard

October was a rough month for me, which meant that I did quite a bit of retail therapy. I am actually embarrassed to post this haul, but I’m proud to say that I’ve read most of these! So at least I am not adding to my already astronomical owned TBR (post on this nightmare coming in December).

I also apparently blacked out when Macmillan added the Winter/Spring 2020 titles, because I don’t remember going berserk on the Download Now button, but here we are.

Book Haul: May, June & July 2019

Welcome to three months worth of book haul, friends! It’s certainly been awhile since I posted a book haul, but that is more a result of my slump, hiatus, and move to self-hosted in the last few months than my not acquiring new books. (I have a problem, friends. See the shame total graphic! Sure it breaks down to $6.96 a book, but STILL.)
