2017 End Of Year Book Haul

So because I don’t normally get books everything month I decided it would be best to just do a big book haul post, in the middle of the year (Read Mid Year Haul 2017 here) and the end of the year. But I had like no self control at all this time round, I acquired new books every month, I got 49 new books in the space of 6 months…! I think that might be a new record for me. I have joined some book groups on Facebook where people are always selling old books, and they’re so cheap and often ones that have been on one of my wishlists for years, so I keep falling into the trap of I’ll buy that!

So in the new year I definitely think I need to try and read more and buy less. Fingers crossed I keep to this.

Mid Year Book Haul 2017

Mid year book haul, all the book I bought from january 2017 to June 2017

I haven’t been able to do any haul posts on here, because I am constantly putting myself on super strict book buying bans. Which I broke, exponentially last month.

This means I now have the fun job of finding space on my already quite full bookcase for these lovelies, but I also get to share what I got with you guys.

So I thought the best way for me to do hauls would be if I just did a post every six months so that enough books would acuminate to be worth mentioning.

Let me know what you think.
