May’s Big Ass Book Haul!

May has been a deliciously awesome month so far in regards to book mail and book gifts, and one of the reasons for that is there’s a lot of diverse books in my haul this month! The second reason that it’s so awesome is that the pile is positively towering and leaning. It’s already fallen on me twice mid-cataloguing. Although that may have more to do with my being a bungler than anything else… whoopsie. Howbeit, everything is listed down below, broken up by genre! Diverse books will be highlighted in RED!
