I was horrible with posting on my blog in May and I feel so sad about that! It was a busy month for me with work (since I ended up getting extended) and some other random things in my life happening. I really want to get back into things here, but I need to figure out a good balance between life and blog. I did read a lot though and I’ll have my wrap up in the next day or two as soon as I get some more time to work on that post. For today though, I bring you my May book haul! You can check out a full list of the books that I own over here. There’s links to different pages on my blog that show my e-books and my physical books. I haven’t updated that page since early February though (I really need to find some time to do this), so an update for that is coming soon. Here are the books that I got in May…
Another month where I ended up getting quite a few books. I’ve been being a little more picky with the physical books that I buy lately, because I’m trying to be cautious with the way that I spend money right now. I’ve been getting more e-books or borrowing from my library. BUT I had to have all of these books, so I couldn’t help myself and treated myself to some books again this month. I saw Listen to Your Heart at a discount bookstore and decided to get it because I’ve liked Kasie West’s books in the past and it was only $2.99 I believe. Luck of the Titanic and Lost in the Never Woods both sounded really good, so I had to have those. I’ve read almost all of Becky Albertalli’s books, so I decided to get her new one, Kate in Waiting. It also sounds really good to me, so I’m excited for it. Hopefully I like it, because sometimes her books are hit or miss for me. I needed Pumpkin to complete my Dumplin’ series and you guys, the rainbow spine is amazing (see picture below). And of course the new volume of Heartstopper was a MUST. I love the graphic novels so much. I plan to reread the first three this month, so I can read volume four.
I did keep my e-book buying to a smaller number again this month. I wasn’t really looking too hard for e-book deals. I couldn’t pass up a new Katie McGarry book or a new K.A. Tucker book. I am really excited about reading both of them. Cursed Objects sounds really cool, so I wanted to get it to read in October as part of my spooky TBR when it comes time to make that. It’s true stories about cursed objects around the world. I’ve been wanting to read 10 Blind Dates for a while now and I saw that it’s perfect for a Christmas themed TBR in December. Thinking ahead for those holiday themed TBRs later in the year. 😛
What new books did you get in May? Have you read any of the ones that I got? Feel free to link me to your haul post, so I can check it out!
May wrap up coming soon and I will definitely do some blog hopping as well, because it’s been a little bit since I’ve last done that and I want to catch up with you! 🙂 Hoping to have time to blog hope this weekend (or maybe do a little bit at a time after work) since I have meetings at work all week, so not a lot of downtime as I did before when work was slow. And with that, I will leave you with a picture of my bookshelves from early May. I was able to move books to a smaller shelf to make room for new books! It’s definitely not as neat as pictured below anymore haha. I need to rearrange books to fit all my new books that I got this month, so they are kind of just all over the place. 😛
I hope you have a great day!
