Spring 2017 Book Haul

image

It’s been a while since I’ve done a haul. Probably because I’ve been trying to be better at buying less books. Did that work? Kind of….

Actually, not really. I try to limit myself to one physical book a month (if I buy zero, even better) to save some money but they are all MY PRECIOUSSSSSSSSSS.

Also, I know this is totally irrelevant but it’s late at night when I’m writing this and it’s raining really hard and I’m kind of scared my windows will break even though I know they probably won’t. Keep in mind I live in a place that is lucky to see any weather other than hot, extra hot, heat stroke, and crispy.

This tag was created by Read Like Wildfire and Elyjayne. Make sure to watch their videos and give them some love!

The Dim Sum Book Tag

I saw this tag on Anna’s blog (My Bookish Dream) and wanted to give it a try because I love dim sum. It’s been forever since I’ve eaten them, but man, they are delicious! If you haven’t tried them before, I highly encourage you find a place that sells them because you won’t be disappointed.

This tag was created by Joey @ Thoughts and Afterthoughts and Jenna @ Reading with Jenna. Dim sum is a style of Chinese cuisine whereby food is served in small (tapas-like) portions and is common during yum cha (which literally means: drinking tea).

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site
  2. Devour dim sum and answer the tag questions
  3. Tag five others to join your round table for some dim sum fun
  4. Food coma
