      1. That’s alright! Art and trinkets are always fun! I’m gonna really stick to my ban for the next six weeks because I know I’ll be buying soooo much at BookCon in May.


  1. My new years resolution was to stop buying books for at least a month. That lasted all of around 3 hours so no judgement here particularly as there are some really great looking books on your list 🙂

  2. I really can’t help but laugh at how many books you bought while on a book buying ban hahaha I can totally relate though. Every time I say I’m on a book buying ban, I end up caving in. I see several that you bought that I’ve been wanting to read. I’ve been dying to get Salt to the Sea since it was announced and yet I haven’t bought it yet. I don’t know what’s wrong with me! lol
