Birthday Book Haul!

Hi everyone! As you probably saw on Twitter and Instagram, I had a huge book haul with all my gift cards for BookOutlet and Chapters! I ended up spending over what I had in gift cards, but I'm chill with it. I'm going to give all y'all a breakdown of the books I bought and include some snazzy pictures. I also get to cross off some of the books that were on my TTT on September 15th about the books I want for my birthday, which is nice.

I'm going to include the instagram pictures I posted so you can have some visuals. You should know I dropped over $100 in just over two hours. But it was so worth it. I have so many good books now that I cannot wait to start reading.
