Book Buying Ban Update #1

Guys. This is sooo hard.

You have no idea how much you love books, until you can’t buy them anymore. Yes, I know I did it to myself, but I am just itching to go buy more books!

So this is going to be short and sweet.

I slipped twice; once because I accidentally clicked into a Book Bub email and saw that a book in a series I’ve been collecting was free. Headed on over to Amazon and bought it. The second time was on NetGalley because I requested another book. I had heard awesome things about it, so I did.

In the meantime, I have read two others from NetGalley. But… two of my previous requests were granted, so I’m back at 30. Ugh.

Oooh, side note! I was contacted by a publicist for Harper Collins and she sent me an ARC. My first print ARC! Yessss! 🙂 This is pretty awesome. Not gunna lie. I’ll also be a part of the blog tour, towards the end of December.


Just in case you missed it, here is why I am going on a book buying ban for myself.

Ah! Wish me luck as I continue down this unsure path.

  1. I’m on a book buying ban until Christmas and the last two weeks have been sooooooo difficult because Winter just came out and The Infinite Sea came out in paperback this month and I want to get both so badly!

      Keep going! Christmas is almost here 🙂

  2. Congratulations for your first physical ARC! I would never be able to go on a book ban, I just love buying books too much!

      Thanks! It definitely is rough; I keep hovering over Amazon like I want to buy books! Must stop!

      1. Stay away from Amazon! The temptation will be too much!

  4. Good luck with your book buying ban! You’ve done pretty well so far 🙂

  5. Ack! This sounds really hard. I would definitely go broke if I bought all my books haha. I am a big supporter of the library. HowEVER, if there is a book on BookBub that is free and I want it, I will most certainly go for it!
