Book Haul (July 2017)

Hello again and welcome to another book haul! Today’s book haul is deceiving because I actually bought all these books in June.

Book Haul (May 2017)

It is not without a great deal of pride that I am presenting this rather small – for me – book haul this month. It is the first time in a month of 2017, in which I am not expecting any mail from the nice orange lady (she wears orange, I call her orange lady,…

Holiday BookTube-A- Thon 2016 TBR

It is 4 days before the end of the year and I have not reached my reading goal. But that’s okay! Because the holiday BookTube-A-Thon is starting tomorrow (the 29th and ends on the 31st of December).
