2022 Book Haul

At the beginning of the year, I told myself to only buy books whenever I visited the bookstores in the city, and I was doing well until the second half of the year. I honestly do not know what came over me because I hauled most of the books in this haul in only a few months. However, since it was my birthday and Christmas, I wanted to go all out as I rarely buy any books on these occasions.

I also recently posted a blog post about the books I received from publishers and bookstores in 2022. If you are interested in seeing which books I received, check out my blog post by clicking here.

I am so unbelievably excited and grateful to have added these books to my collection, as there are quite a few books I have wanted for so long.

Keep reading, stay safe and never stop telling stories.
