May ’20 book haul

Good morning bookworms!!

It’s time for the monthly book haul!! We’re keeping on at reasonable numbers over here – I mean, I’m still gaining more than I am reading (please help me), but it’s not outrageous!!

book boxes

I subscribe to three monthly boxes: OwlCrate, FairyLoot and the book-only subscription for LitJoy. In April I skipped LitJoy and OwlCrate again. FairyLoot boxes are delayed, so I’m still missing the March and April boxes.

In May I ordered the LitJoy and FairyLoot book/boxes. Neither of which arrived. I’m also still waiting on my March FairyLoot box… but I did get a shipping notification for it last night!!

 

book purchases

Ooof… so, we’re outside of my limit of 10 books… BUT one of them was a gift. So, I’m taking it!!

    “I’m still gaining more than I am reading (please help me)” haha I have that problem as well, sadly. πŸ™‚

    I think those monthly boxes sound awesome, I always love seeing what goodies come with the books.

    Hope you have an amazing week!

    BOOKS!!
    although our local bookstore is now open, i’m kinda on the fence about going now- as I need to bring my transplanted mother along and well.. even if we don’t have any cases around here right now, I still kind of don’t wanna take any chances.

    A few of thoses i’ve been wanting to read- Don’t you forget about me, The flatshare, Fix her up.. but mostly, I want your thoughts on Our stop! I picked it up -quite a while ago now- last time I went but put it back down as per it’s goodread being mostly negative.

      We’ve definitely had a much easier time of COVID in Australia. Not as many cases, which I think has helped our stores open a little earlier. I’m trying to stay home still as much as possible as I’m immunosuppressed, but I did pop to the shops on a Tuesday at 10am and there was almost no one there, which was a huge relief.

      • Kristina

        Yeah, our province only has cases in the north night now.. our area is being clear for now- but as my mother is immunosupressed aswell, im kinda effy about going anywhere I don’t need to for now xd basically only going to work and back with the petshop & vet clinic when needed for the dogs ..

  • lilisblissfulpages

    Aaaah I’m so jealous with Burn and BattleBorn…Hope you enjoy all these books Meeghan. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    By the way, I saw now that I wasn’t following your blog which is ridiculous because we met here. Hahaha. Must be a wordpress glitch or something. Anyway, I followed you again.

    • meeghan

      Thanks Lili!! I think a lot of people dropped off when I moved to self-hosted in March. I followed all the steps to bring my old followers over, but I seem to be missing a lot of them. I must have done something wrong?! πŸ˜‚

  • Sophie @BewareOfTheReader

    I am always amazed that you subscribe to three book boxes Meeghan! I got Aurora Burning and the Flatshare too!

Let's chat!
