This will be the last month that I go extremely crazy with book buying. It’s really taking a toll on my bank account and honestly, it’s stressing me out so much. I have so many books to read and I feel like it’s never going to end and I’ll never get it under control if I don’t stop buying books! So I may get the occasional book here and there, but no more craziness like you are about to see. And with that, here is my January book haul.
I also won an awesome giveaway for This Is Where It Ends and I won that red Polaroid camera and a red lanyard from Sourcebooks. 😀 The little picture of my cat ColbyJack was printed with the Polaroid camera.
I’ve been dying to get my hands on all of these books, so I had to pick them up when I seen them at Target.
I was sent an ARC of Girl in the Blue Coat from The Novl and I am really excited to read this one. I should be reading it within the next month or so and getting a review up.
I was a little disappointed with the OwlCrate this month and even more so because I didn’t get everything that was supposed to be in the box.

A Knot in the Grain by Robin McKinley ebook
I was supposed to get a Throne of Glass print, but they forgot to include that in my box. Kind of a disappointment since everyone got one in their boxes and I feel like if I paid a lot of money for a box, I should have everything. The box this month wasn’t as great as past boxes, that’s for sure. I just wasn’t thrilled about any of the things included. I do love the Snape Funko, but that’s about it.
Okay, so I went a little bit crazy on Book Outlet and I slightly regret it right now. Most of these were from Boxing Day sale and then I think another sale they had. Most of these books are books I never even heard of, but got them because I felt like I had to buy something during these sales and they sounded interesting. I will NOT be doing that anymore. GOODBYE BOOK OUTLET…unless it’s a book I actually know for sure that I want. Hopefully they’ll be decent reads and I won’t feel so bad about getting them. The first five (first picture) are ones that I did really want then the rest are just random ones.

I actually didn’t go crazy with buying e-books like I usually do, so at least that is one good thing to come out of this crazy book haul. I’ve been trying to stay away from Amazon and e-book deals as much as possible. I already have over 200 e-books that I need to read.
That was my crazy January book haul! I have no idea how it ended up being like this, but I do not plan on ever doing this again, lol…hopefully! I have to save save save money, because I am going to California in March! 😀 I also really need to work more on reading the books that I own rather than continuing to let my book count get even more ridiculous, lol.
I hope you had an awesome weekend! 😀
