book haul | winter 2020 edition

A new concept for my blog! Book hauls!

I’ve never been in a position where book hauls were really possible. Obviously when you’re at University, you’re barely getting enough money in to buy food, let alone buy books. 

However, I’m currently in the middle of a gap year, and my income from work has meant there have been a lot of book purchases. I’ve made good use of my Audible account and Kindle account, too, which I probably shouldn’t be doing with my physical TBR at the moment. Oh well!

This is going to be a VERY long post. I’ll have things split into categories: Physical Books; Gifted/Bought for me; Kindle Books; Audiobooks. I’ll also indicate where things were free, just so you don’t think too badly of my self control.
