Humongous Holiday Books & Novelty Socks Haul!

Good morning and happy Friday to you all! With the weekend upon us, I decided to catalogue all of the books that I received during the holidays so that Sir Betrothed and I can spend the entire weekend marathoning video games. We began doing this to celebrate the end of 2017, and it’s been so delightfully relaxing that we’re going to partake again this weekend.

Unlike my usual book hauls, due to the sheer volume of books that I received, I’m simply going to list the titles beneath their respective genres, and then provide photos. I felt that if I sat down and worked on all of the little details for every title, we’d be here until 2019, which I’m sure none of you would be too keen on. 😉

In addition to the wonderful books, I got some really bitchin’ fantastic novelty socks. I don’t remember if I have ever mentioned it here, but I FUCKING LOVE novelty knee-high socks, and these ones are some of the very best! You can check ’em out at the end of the book haul. ✌🏽

I would like to take a brief moment and say thank you to everyone who sent me books, especially Sir Betrothed and my cousin, Pyar! I cannot express with words what your kindness did to uplift my holidays. I appreciate it with all of my heart and always shall. 💞
