Book Haul

Aside from books I borrowed from both the library and Kindle Unlimited (and a couple gifted by blogger friends), I've bought nothing!! I'm doing so well with this DON'T YOU DARE BUY ANY MORE BOOKS, NATALIE goal I've set for myself :)

I hope we find only the best reads in August!

Talk soon,
