January book haul and a buying ban! | #51

Happy Saturday! Today is my monthly book haul post, and I’m putting myself on a buying ban!

The buying ban:

  • Exception to the ban: books for buddy reads. I can still get those
  • No new (or used) purchases otherwise until the ban is over
  • The ban will last through the end of April at least, maybe longer

I’m really hoping to get my physical tbr down during this time, but I do have a few buddy reads planned out, some of which I don’t own the book for yet. So I will still have monthly hauls, but they’ll just be much smaller and all will be for planned buddy reads. Wish me luck. I do a few month long ban every year, and every year I’ve been successful. I don’t see this year being any different.

The book haul:

In My Dreams I Hold A Knife by Ashley Winstead – This book is just further proof my tastes are starting to change. Thriller!

Switching Time by Richard Baer – This book is actually a re-buy and already read. I used to own it like a decade ago, but I lent it out and never got it back. So now I have it again!

Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon – Sometimes you just get curious, okay. Booktok has sucked me in.

Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller – Picked this one up because it’s one of my 12 Friend Rec books, and I’m very excited for it. 😀


And that’s it! Rather small haul this month, and I assume with the ban it will be the next few months too. That’s ok though, I have plenty of books to tide me over. Peace!
