A few books I bought or was given.
Some bought, some used, some free.
Books to cheer me up as the craziness in the world rages on.
Well, it’s been a while since I’ve done this. A whole two months or so, actually, which means this haul will be pretty long.
These are just a few stuff I picked up before things started getting REALLY serious with the coronavirus and all nonessential stores closed.
I got books! 😀 I’ve also ran out of space, so I have no idea where I will place the overflow. I hate stacking them on the floor. For the rest of the year, I’m going to try my hardest to stop buying new books and instead read the ones I already have and get rid of any I absolutely hate and will never read to free up some space.
I said it.
I MUST do it.
Big books, tiny books, cute books, and audio books.
Oh yeah, and comics too. 🙂
I missed out on doing this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, but the topic so appealed to me that I decided to do a BBC post instead.
BBC is a meme I created to feature beautiful book covers. Since January is often spent reflecting on the previous year, I’ve decided to make this BBC post about 2019 book covers. The following are all great cover designs of books that were published in 2019; but the first three are my favorites.

Umm…so it’s been a while since I’ve done a book haul and I hadn’t even noticed. Of course that doesn’t mean that I stopped buying books (if only). I’ve just been busy the past couple months and didn’t have time to post my book hauls (or anything else) on Instagram, which is what I use to alert myself to do a book haul on here. Smh, I’m behind on so many things.
So this might seem like a large haul (kinda), but it’s only because I hadn’t posted one of these since October.
It’s been a while since I’ve done a BBC post (despite my intention to publish at least one of these per month). BBC is a meme I created to feature beautiful book covers. However, this time I’ll feature eye-catching book spines. After all, when you purchase the book and place it on your shelf, it’s the spine you’ll most often see.
I love beautifully designed book covers, but I also like striking spines. Sometimes it’s the spine instead of the cover that first beckons me, making me pick up the book, read what it’s about, and ultimately buy it. So this post will be all about the spines that call to me from the shelves.

Time for another bookhaul… exactly one month later. And for me, this is a great one because there are two books in here that I’m beyond excited to have, and one I got at an outing that I was beyond excite to attend.
These are the three I’m most grateful for:
