Whopping Book Ban FAILURE – April’s Book Haul

Man, I am still exhausted from Dewey’s 24-hour Readathon! It was really fun to devote so much of my time to reading, and I even did a bit o’ VLOGing while I participated, but my brain definitely needs a small break. So, for the rest of Sunday (after sharing this post) I plan on watching anime and taking naps.

So, if any of you have been following me for a few months, you may know that I’ve put myself on a book buying ban for the rest of 2017. Welp, that ended up being a colossal fucking failure. I did fantastically in March. I didn’t buy a single book. But for some reason, after I paid all of my nasty little bill-bugs, April decided to corrupt me into a book-buying-bastard. My resolve failed me entirely and now I have a leaning tower of paperbacks (and a few hardbacks as well)!

In an effort to keep this post from getting disastrously long and boring, I’m simply going to share pictures and titles of everything I’ve bought. If y’all have any questions, comments, or berating to do on my failures, please leave them in the comment section! I always respond where I can. 🙂  Happy reading and fun napping to all. ♥
