Had some #BookMail today! This #bookbuyingban is killing me, this was a preorder from months ago. There‘s so many new books I want like the illustrated Goblet Of Fire, Monstress Vol4, & special editions of both Crooked Kingdom & A Conjuring Of Light. Oh, also Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky. At least I have the last novel in the Three Dark Crowns series which fits the #Scareathlon #TeamSlaughter theme. 1point #PointsTotal-135

DuckOfDoom Crooked kingdom is getting a special edition ?!😱😱 1mo
julesG @DuckOfDoom Collector's edition, I think. Also a boxed set of both novels. I have not dared to look at any of these. 1mo
DuckOfDoom @JulesG I googled and it's a fairly affordable collector's edition! It looks beautiful, and I couldn't resist. I hope it will match the Six of Crows CE 1mo

julesG @DuckOfDoom It does match. Six of Crows has a red cover and Crooked Kingdom looks silvery. I still don't have either. I am hoping for a book voucher for Christmas. 😁 1mo
Lizpixie @DuckOfDoom @julesG I have the Six Of Crows Edition and it‘s beautiful. It matches the Crooked Kingdom one perfectly, I need it on my shelves!🙌 1mo
julesG @Lizpixie So do I! 🙈 This hoarding is a serious issue. 😁 1mo

I‘m meant to be on a #BookBuyingBan until December 1 BUT this is a book I started from the library and didn‘t have time to finish PLUS it‘s really a bday gift for a special Litten 🎁💝So if your name starts with a T and ends with an H and you live in Liverpool don‘t buy this book 😜and I hope you‘re cool with me reading the last 150 pages 😘

Cinfhen @TrishB if you ALREADY own this one and someone else buys it for you please let me know 😊There‘s always a chance for that happening 😘 1mo
erzascarletbookgasm I love this cover, different from the one I usually see. True, Cindy 🙃 And I was just thinking whether I should inform @TrishB to STAY AWAY from her TBR wish list till bday is over! 😊 (edited) 1mo
TrishB @erzascarletbookgasm I have also been warned at home! I literally haven‘t brought a book for weeks....picking up my Philip Pullman one later as I had that preordered. But I‘m being good....-and I don‘t have this one either 😁 1mo

TrishB Read away 😘 1mo
jenniferw88 Adding my warning too @TrishB ! STAY AWAY from your tbr Trish 🤣🤣🤣 Quick q: do food goodies need to be vegan? 1mo
TrishB @jenniferw88 😂 getting excited now! Just vege is fine- doesn‘t have to be vegan. 😘 1mo
Cinfhen I think it might be time to update that TBR @TrishB 🤣 1mo
SamAnne I had to return my library book and ended up buying it! 1mo
Cinfhen This book is SO GOOD @SamAnne totally worth buying ❤️ 1mo
ephemeralwaltz Just bought this today! Gonna start right away. 1mo
Cinfhen I have a feeling you‘re gonna love it @ephemeralwaltz 😉🤞🏼 1mo
Suet624 Such a good story. It keeps growing on you after you finish it. 1mo
Mdargusch 😂🤣 1mo
Reviewsbylola December 1 😱😱 1mo
Cinfhen Yes!!!! December 1. It went into effect September 1 and I‘m having a HARD TIME. Of course my monthly subscriptions don‘t count nor do #KindleDailyDeals or birthday gifts for others 😉 @Reviewsbylola @Mdargusch 1mo
Mdargusch I‘m so proud of myself because I‘m plowing through the books I own! I decided not to do anymore challenges and just read what I want from my shelves and it has helped me cut out my book buying dramatically! But then there‘s those pesky book club books. 🤣 1mo
Cinfhen There is something nice about reading books you own @Mdargusch !!! I‘ve discovered a few gems on my shelf!!!! 1mo

When it‘s been a long week, sometimes only a cupcake and a new book can soothe the soul. And also photobombing cats 😹 #catsoflitsy #treatyoshelf

(And yes, I‘m still on a #bookbuyingban - but this one was a preorder I‘d forgotten about that just came today... so...)😂 #idonthaveaproblem #reallyidont

Aimeesue Solnit! Love her. ❤️❤️❤️ 2mo

Took advantage of some holiday sales at a couple of my local bookstores today. This will most likely be my last #bookhaul until the winter holidays as I‘m now on a #bookbuyingban until at least my birthday 😄

bromeliad I'm on one of these too! I feel your pain! 😅😭😂 2mo

Broke my summer #bookbuyingban for this one because it is my favorite kind of #summerread: #fairytaleretelling /#mythology!!

I may have gone a bit crazy buying books while I was on vacation last month - this is just a very small portion of what I bought. 8/55 if I remember correctly 🤔😳🤣🤷🏻‍♀️. #bookhaul #noshame #okmaybealittle #bookbuyingban

wanderinglynn Great haul! 🙌🏻 5mo
Kaila-ann @wanderinglynn thanks! 😊 5mo

I may have gone a little overboard on the book buying while on vacation this week. My 2nd mom likes to thrift shop and knew a few good places in town. I added 55 books to my TBR stack - 17 of which were on my wishlist. Holy cow!! I‘m putting myself on a book buying ban for a while 😳. #thriftshopping #usedbooks #bookbuyingban

Rissreads Lucky you! 💚 6mo
Theaelizabet Wow! 6mo
Kaila-ann @Rissreads thanks 😊! And @Theaelizabet yeah, I might have gone a little over board but the deals were too good to pass up lol. 6mo

Theaelizabet @Kaila-ann Oh, no judgment here, only respect! 6mo
Kaila-ann @Theaelizabet it was a lot of fun. Most of the books were 0.50 so I just couldn‘t help it lol. Plus I got my friend excited about little free libraries. There are so many of them in the town where she lives. 6mo
DGRachel I (briefly) considered a post-vacation book buying ban, but there are a bunch of new releases coming June 4th that I really want so...🤷🏻‍♀️ 6mo
Kaila-ann @DGRachel I think i have to lol. I don‘t have the shelf space and I am way outpacing my reading speed 🤣. I buy most of my books used since I trade or send them off. I need to slow down or get more bookcases 🤔🤣. 6mo
DGRachel I always vote for more bookcases! 🤣🤣 Of course, I don‘t know where I‘m going to put more bookcases. 🤦🏻‍♀️ 6mo
Kaila-ann @DGRachel haha yeah, that‘s my other problem lol. 6mo

So, this is my March book haul (a combination of #botm picks and #bnbookhaul finds) and I‘ve decided to go on a #bookbuyingban until BEA/BookCon. Which might be tricky because I‘m terrible at book buying bans! I decided #botm would be an exception 😂

SW-T Nice haul! I was thinking about Queenie but love verse so I decided on (edited) 8mo

I know I said I was on a #bookbuyingban but I know me and when I finally read this series, I‘m going to want to own it, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

#treatyourself #bookmail ??

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I completely understand that! 9mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego You made the right choice! 9mo

Stopped at the Amazon bookstore for the first time. It was interesting but very different from most bookstores. I can't quite figure out how they decide what to stock although I know it has something to do with ratings and reviews. I did manage to stick to my #bookbuyingban and not purchase anything.

TheBookKeepers Ooo I have not heard of these! Interesting 10mo
Tamra Good for you! 10mo
