Most Anticipated Releases – February 2020

So my goal of publishing a post every day in January definitely fell by the wayside as I am currently in the middle of a seven day run at work and can barely keep my eyes open.

Fun Fact: This is my first book haul of the year, but I have still not bought a single book this year yet and I'm definitely proud of myself for showing more restraint than I did last year.

Most Anticipated Releases – January 2020

Before I had a full time job and was independently earning my own money, I wouldn't be researching new releases, because I knew I wouldn't be able to afford them, and my library rarely had them. I would content myself with reading whatever I could find in the charity shops - my local one used… Continue reading Most Anticipated Releases – January 2020
