March Book Haul

So after several months of trying to gather up money, I finally got some money!!! YAY. But then I blew it all on books. YAY? Anyways here some of the books I got this month and hopefully plan on reading the next couple of months.

First though I want to preface that this isn’t me showing off how many books I got because its taken me A WHILE and a lot of patience to collect these books. I don’t want anyone to think I’m bragging. So I will apologize beforehand if this offends anyone. I got most of them for pretty cheap prices too. If you want to find cheap like I did I made this post a couple of days ago where I talk about how I get a lot of books for cheap/bargain prices which you can read here.

Secondly, this post is more like an inventory for me to keep with all the books I’ve gotten so I can remember which ones to read next and make sure I buy the same book twice (because it happens a lot with me and I have a really poor memory).

Anyways here’s the books I got and also I wrote underneath some super vague things I know about each of the books that made me want to buy them in the first place also with links to Goodreads in case you want to read more about them.
