BEFORE YOU TELL ME I'M CRAZY for buying so many books, let me tell ya, I got them for AWESOME deals. And by awesome deals, I mean I got THREE of them for FREE and the rest of them I paid either 99¢ for OR no more than $4.00. Otherwise, you would probably only have seen MAYBE 1/4 of the above. I've been trying to cut back as much as possible, especially since I have so many books to catch up on. This month, I couldn't pass up the deals. I just couldn't. I've decided that August will be "catch up on some reading and try really hard not to buy any books" month. There are a couple I have my eye on, but I'm restraining myself. I will reward myself when I catch up. *MUST GET CAUGHT UP BECAUSE I WANT THOSE BOOKS!!!*

That was my awesome month of bookish goodness. How about you? Did you get anything good this week/month?

  14. "I will reward myself when I get caught up" - you sound like me lol. But at the rate I'm going I'll never get caught up! I could probably spend a year reading just what's in my house without anything new. It's a serious problem haha. Anyway, great haul! I have those Jennifer Echols books on my TBR, and I've wondered about Jodi Lynn Anderson's Peaches books...I'm reading Tiger Lily right now. Paranormalcy is awesome, and I've heard amazing things about Abbi Glines' books...I think I might have a couple of them that I got when they were free on Kindle. Gotta love deals eh? I really need an ereader so I can take advantage of cheap ebooks (although it always floors me when the ebook is MORE expensive than the hardback...how can they justify that?!). Happy reading! <3

    1. Hehehe, it's so hard when there are SOOO many great books out there. I just need to set aside a little more time for reading so I can catch up at least a teensy bit. ;) You do need to get an ereader sometime! It's so awesome to have one. I generally use mine for all indie books and only when traditionally pubbed ones go on sale. If I'm gonna spend $10-12 on a book, I am getting a physical copy! :P Thanks Marie! ^_^
