Nov’20 Book Haul

We’ll we all know that I hauled quite a few e-Books in November. You can check out that post here. As far as physical books go, less than ten – which, I think is the least number of physical books in months. I hauled 2 eARCs and a whole bunch of audiobooks, and not shockingly – I One-Clicked 2 more books on Amazon.

It’s a problem.

I should not have access to adult money lol.

But I’m really excited about the books I hauled, and I really cannot wait to have the time and the energy to finally sit down and read them. They’re piling up and it’s driving me mad. But let’s jump into what I hauled in November.

It is the sort of power that could help her overthrow a king, expose the lies he’s told, and put a stop to his wars.
