Wrap-up & Book Haul: [Moody] May


Why is this year flying by so quickly? I can hardly believe we’re almost halfway through the year! Not to mention the festival-season starting – which always gives me those wonderful Summer-vibes, haha.

But you’re not here for that! You’re here to see what I’ve read and what I’ve hauled, so let’s get to it!

I’m already seriously doubting if I’ll ever get my owned TBR down to 100 by the end of the year… But I put myself on a book buying ban –ย please, help me stick to it?! – for a couple of months.
[Except for YALC though. I’m so not going to torture myself by not buying books then.]

How was your month reading-wise? Haul-wise? LIFE-wise?!
Anything exciting happen?
What do you think of the books I hauled?

  1. Wooooooow your haul is huge but the number of books you read is equally as big, I mean 15 in 31 days, do you have a time turner?? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  2. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Edinburgh looks like it was fun XD How did you carry all those books back home with you????
    I bought books buuuuuuut, I tried to control myself I swear…. it just didn’t work.
    I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about Scythe by Neil Shusterman, but yet it still sits on my TBR *nervous laughter*

    1. It was awesome, haha!
      Uuuh.. Well.. *laughs awkwardly* We only had two backpacks with us and.. my boyfriend ended up buying a small suitcase [he didn’t have one yet anyway] in order to get my books back to Belgium? Like.. The suitcase was literally filled with.. my books..
      Controlling yourself when book buying is near impossible – I swear! Especially if you’ve convinced yourself you’re going to “try and minimize the book buying”, your brain still goes “NOPE. BUY ALL THE BOOKS.”
      I’m not even allowed to read Scythe right now because my boyfriend is reading the sequel and he claims I’ll want to read the sequel as soon as I’ve read Scythe which is.. a no can-do because he needs to finish it first and “I’m not allowed to read it while he’s reading it”. Haha. :’)

    2. Hahaha! That’s great! I get what you mean, if I see a book I reeaaaaaaally want it is very likely I’ll get it (especially if it’s on sale!!!!) …. I have loooooooong given up on the book buying ban thing…. I just try to distract myself with other things XD

      If that’s the verdict then I may need to wait till I can buy Scythes’ sequel…. I am not going to be left on some cliff! No thank you. XD I see where he’s coming from, I read a book at the same time as my sister and…… I gave up…. let her read it first…. always “dropped” my bookmark out of the book on “accident” ;_; T’was very sad times. Haha XD

    3. Exactly! And as soon as I see a “3 for 2”-kind of thing, all is lost. Every single time. :’) And if I find four books, well, then I’ll just walk around and browse until I have two more. xD
      Ugh. I failed last time so I’m giving the ban-thing another try. I’m going to try and stick to it, keeping YALC in mind because that’s the exception. There I can buy ALL the books I want. I just have to.. keep it up until then.. :’)

      Oh, his issue is simply my reading faster than he does, so I’d catch up to him and then he’d get annoyed every time I’m reading while he wants to read. That or I can’t shut up about it. Or I’m all “GASP” and “OHNO.” while I’m reading something he hasn’t yet. xD

    4. Every darn time there’s a “3 for 2” offer, I lose all sense of control, I don’t even think…. I just buy XD
      Ooooooo, that’s a good idea! Don’t buy books fro a while theeeeeeeeen SPLURGE!!! BUY ALL THE BOOKS AT ONCE!!!
      Hahahaha! Oh, I see! The great fear of Spoilers!

    5. Hahahah. The bookworm-mania is what it is!
      EXACTLY! And, like, all the ARC’s [hopefully] and way too many books and way too many books and way too many books. I’ll probably have to give myself a book buying ban for the rest of the year afterwards but HEEEY. THAT’S OKAY. [I won’t stick to it anyway. xD]

  3. My God this is a huge haul. Good luck on book buying ban! I haven’t buy books for a month and I’m pretty proud of myself!

  4. Wow you bought a lot! I don’t usually acquire enough books to include on my monthly wrap up, but this month I had about eight and most of them were used books (thankfully). Your bookshelves must be out of this world.

    Have fun at YALC! I hope to one day be able to attend a book convention with my best bud. ^_^

    1. Haha, I try to limit myself but somehow I often have a.. huge-ish haul? I’m aiming not to do that this month though. Fingers crossed. :’)
      My bookshelves are STUFFED. And I haven’t read about 180 of them.. Which is horrible and needs to be fixed, but I’m trying.

      Thank you!
      I’m already sooo excited for it and it’s still about two months off, haha. Hope you’ll get to go to one someday! ๐Ÿ˜€
