Book Haul: March & April 2019

Book Haul March & April 2019

Welcome to two months worth of book haul, friends! Because of my hiatus last month, I didn’t get around to posting my March haul so I figured that I would just do a combined post. I’ve behaved quite well over the last couple of months, all of the books that I bought were pre-orders or from my Mysterious Galaxy YA Subscription! Another big theme is that I read most of them before buying them because I was fortunate enough to receive ARCs, and I was able to support a good number of debut authors. It is also nice to not add to my astronomical owned TBR!

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.

February 2019 Book Haul // the month I succumbed to retail therapy

While January was the month of self control, February was kind of the month of Treat Yo Self. Work stress and depression meant that I was adding books into my Barnes & Noble cart a lot more frequently than normal… oops. The good (?) thing is that most of my spending was in pre-orders for books not coming out yet, but the bad news is that Future Kaleena has to remember to have money in the bank for when they ship!

Here are 20 Anticipated Reads for March 2019 // Don’t send your TBRs after me

Spring is in sight, and March releases are just around the corner! I know that much of the world is blanketed in snow, but where I live in California has been oscillating between sunny and rainy days – and the trees & flowers are all confused. 🥀🌼🥀🌼

ANYWAYS! This post is about books, not the hot/cold weather patterns of Northern California. And friends, us book lovers and bibliophiles are in for a treat this March! My actual anticipated tag on Edelweiss for March has twenty-one (21!!!) books on it. So, uh, I apologize right now to your TBRs because I was only able to weed out a couple.
