Writing the words ‘Post-Christmas’ in the title crushed my soul a little bit. So much anticipation and it’s over already. D: Well, 364 more days ’til Christmas, I guess.
So explaining the title a little bit. If you’ve followed my blog at all, you’ll have seen that I put myself on buying bans and then break them all the time. I have this issue with buying books too quickly and not reading them at the same pace. All my bans usually occur around Christmas or my birthday because I have this little nugget of ‘I’ll get books as gifts’ knowledge in my brain that kinda lulls my addiction for a bit.
Welp, this year my family caught on to what I was doing, haha. I received two books for Christmas this year, where I would usually get five or six. They’ve limited me, hawhaw. So go them I suppose. I suppose.
This isn’t saying I only got two books this month. No no, I got some for myself too because I’m a hopeless case. And some unaware extended family got me book gift cards. Woot. I’m going to try to hold onto them until at least I get my goodreads goal met for this year (I need 4 more books by New Year’s! Wish me luck).
I’ll point out the books I got for Christmas, but otherwise, the rest were bought by me for me. 😛 Woop.
I’m very excited for all these books – The Night Circus and Frankenstein I’ve already read but otherwise they’re all new to me. Bookoutlet was a big part of the numbers you see. They had that black friday sale and well… as I’ve mentioned before, I’m a hopeless case, so… :”D
If you’ve read any of the above or plan to read them, let me know! Happy reading!
