Book Haul #11

Well well, we’re back here again already, this time with a slightly shorter list. And there’s good reason too! I just about had enough books to put together a book haul and decided that now is the time to go on a ban. I have a Book Box Club, and Willoughby Book Club subscription currently rolling, and I’ve pre-ordered a signed copy of a novel due out at the end of May, so I think it’s time to stop buying books on the side and actually think about saving money!

But this month, well, this month I have splurged a little on a book I’ve had my eye on for a while, and also finally added books I was donated a while ago and kept on forgetting about! There is a real mixed bag of titles on here, and I’m excited about it! So, without further ado, let’s see the books:

Book Haul #9

It may be a new year, but some things never change because yes, I am still hauling books. I have slowed down a lot over the past few months, but, my last haul post was pre-Christmas, pre-TBTB Santa, and pre-sales, so there have been quite a few books hauled over the last 2 months! I can’t be blamed for a lot of them, as they were gifts, or purchased using vouchers and gift money! For some reason I have found that this book haul post has featured a lot of very pretty books. Yes, I think a lot of books are very pretty, but this month just seems to feature a lot of really beautiful covers and art work. Let’s get on with the show:

Book Haul #7

It has been almost 2 months since I last posted a book haul, and for me, that is a seriously good amount of time. Book Haul #6 followed Book Haul #5 after just over a week, a stupidly short time even for me, so, I decided to try and make a concerted effort to buy less books. And d’you know what, in the large part I really think that I have succeeded, because there are not that many on here, for me, for a 2 month period, and many of them were bought in the last 10 days in a spending flurry. Well, I’m not eating unhealthily, and I can’t have chocolate, so I need a vice, OK?

I also had to use a different back drop this month because I quickly realised that the shortening days and my work schedule didn’t allow me to use my normal trusted spot. So, I decided to jazz up the background with my favourite picture: a black and white shot of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco where the bridge only has been left in it’s distinctive orange/red hue. I love that picture.

Book Haul #6

I told you that this would follow pretty soon. In fact, Book Haul #5 was only a week ago. Don’t worry, I didn’t acquire all these books in the week that I was away, I had been collecting them for a while and kept forgetting to actually write a post. Yes, I have already started Book Haul #7, but in my defence I haven’t been to a charity shop in a while so I had a tri-purchase accident this morning. I have been doing much better of late and thinking more before I hit buy on Amazon or snaffle all the books in the shop. I even went to big book shops in NYC and left every book on their shelves (it was difficult!)

So here’s a list of the books I have acquired recently!

Book Haul #4

Soooooo, we’re here again already. In my defence, this book haul is only being posted so close to the last one because I was struggling with personal issues surrounding writing posts. I haven’t bought all these books in a couple of weeks  That said, it’s still a large number of books to admit to buying, or receiving, since the beginning of the year. Last time round, (view here) I admitted that I was buying lots of books and…well…that’s not changed. I’ve bought 21 books this haul. That’s not too b….who am I kidding, it’s bad. I’m loving it.

Book Haul #3

Sooo….here we are again. I know what I said in mid-March OK? I know I admitted to an addiction, and I know that I told you all that I was thinking about limiting amount of books that I would buy (again) but then I didn’t. At all. In any way. Since March 19th, when I posted Book Haul #2, I have bought, received, been given, acquired, 23 books in total. OK, so on the day of posting, that averages more than a book every 3 days. Sigh. I give in.

*I’ve struggled with blogging recently so this is a little out of date and will be followed shortly by #4. Don’t judge Haha!!
