May Book Haul


I feel a bit guilty. I went a bit overboard this month…and that might be putting it lightly. I got so many books that it would take me forever to give you a bit of a summary about all of them and why I bought them. So, I’ve decided to split my purchases up into chunks of where I got them from. Some were Goodreads Giveaways, one was a gift, one book I received for review, many were from Goodwill and Books-A-Million, and then some were from a huge used bookstore called McKay in Nashville. The most expensive book I purchased this month was about $6, so I’d say I actually did pretty well!

Here are the books!
