May 2017 Book Haul

Hey, guys!

      This month has been a crazy and busy time. I finished my first year of college (all A's my second semester!) and ACOWAR has FINALLY come out! I kind of went on an ACOTAR binge and treated myself to the different editions of ACOWAR and managed to accidentally acquire way too many books. I managed to buy 17 books this month, trade for 2, and I was sent 6 books from authors/publishers. It's really quite ridiculous...I broke it down this month and narrowed it down into different categories. Not only did it help with making it look less ridiculous, it helped when documenting and taking pictures for this post. I didn't have much time this past weekend or this morning to take pictures in a decent setting, so one of my shelves had to do. I couldn't do a huge group picture this time, but enjoy these random-ish groupings!
