Stacking The Shelves: December 2018

BFR (6).png

Let’s start 2019 off with something worth celebrating: BOOK MAIL! During the last weeks of November up until mid December, I’ve received so many books from publishers and personal bookish purchases and I didn’t talk about it at the time because 1) I was so busy with work especially with dual payroll and Christmas party preparations at the office just around the corner, and 2) because I intentionally reserved it for a stacking the shelves post.

Hi, everyone! It’s been over two months since I last shared a book haul post. I have to say, now that I’m finally a college graduate, I don’t get allowances anymore, and buying books is quite hard when you don’t have the budget for it. (Let’s be honest, it’s quite an expensive addiction, right?) So it took me two months to gather all these hype-worthy books and talk about them here on this book haul post! So anyway, let’s get down to all the books I bought between the months of June and July!
