It’s official: book sales are the bane of my wallet. Not to mention, the bane of my bookshelf.
If you hoard books the way I do, you probably have the same problem. It’s a really good thing I didn’t make any bookish resolutions at the start of the year regarding my book buying because that would have been so embarrassing, given the fact that I immediately splurged on books two days after New Year’s Eve.
But come on, how could I possibly resist not going to my local bookstore’s start-of-the-year sale?
Don’t worry, this book haul isn’t as crazy, considering I once hoarded 40+ books in one go just last year. I did buy 14 books though, which is twice as many books as I imagined I would buy. I may have underestimated the power of bargain books over me. Oops.

That’s it for my first book haul for 2017! As excited as I am to buy all the exciting books coming out in the next months, I’m really hoping I can save up some money for my travels in the Spring. I will definitely be sharing book hauls still should I be lucky enough to receive and win some awesome novels or chance upon really great bargains again.
ohwow. I think I only haul that much books and more during the MIBF. and I guess this also makes glad that I’m no where near BGC, hahaha. I got books I’ve been looking for for so long like Nevernight, Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda, and Girl in Pieces. Thank God for Christmas money. I haven’t read any of your book haul but I hope you enjoy them all, Hazel :)
Saving Lucas Biggs looks so cute! And high five for book hoarding. Book hoarding and art-supplies / stationary hoarding are my weaknesses and – well, okay fine. They’re my kryptonite. But I can’t just walk past a book store or shelf of .5pt Pens (or .38! I just found them and I’m in loooove) without physical pain.
Great book haul! I hope you enjoy them!!
From What I Remember was SO FUN!! I hope you love that one. It has a lot of different POVs which I thought made the book really interesting. Also, I loved the adventure aspect in the book. Great haul– my wallet hurts a lot from the BookOutlet sale :(
I’ve never hauled that many books, but I do agree that book sale are the bane for my wallet and bookshelf xD I hope you’ll enjoy exquisite captive and rebound! <3
