Bekka here 🙂  Having a pretty uneventful summer so far – that happens when you and your husband both don’t drive, lol.  It’s not going to look like it, but I’ve put myself on a book buying ban.  It’s not very strict, but the gist is this: if I don’t plan to read this book right away, I’m not gonna buy it.  I have a terrible habit of buying a ton of books and then they sit on my shelves for months (or years!) unread and sad.  Not anymore!  These books here were all purchased before I thought of the ban, but hopefully my hauls will start being much smaller from here on out.

      Thanks! I’m going to need all the luck I can get!

      I can’t wait to see what you think of The Kiss of Deception. My feels are very, very confused. Looooving the world-building though!

      Sadly, I have to put off Trial by Fire for a little while since it doesn’t release for quite some time. But that first chapter had me really intrigued! So glad you enjoyed it. 😀

      I’m almost done The Kiss of Deception and man, is it all over the place. I have THEORIES about the world-building, but the boy characters really got on my nerves! It’s going to be a difficult review to write.

      I’m on a sort-of ban from NG & EW. I’m only requesting books published in December or later. I have enough on my plate for this summer and fall O_O

  1. Where Silence Gathers and The Half Life of Molly Pierce both look great!

    I think it’s a good idea to not buy books if you don’t plan on reading them straight away. I am awful with getting more and more books, but not having the time to read them. But I should probably also stay away from both Netgalley and Edelweiss to remedy my book hoarding problem.

    Happy reading, Bekka.

  2. Hey Bekka, which bookstore do you have? Barnes & Noble or Books-A-Million or some other independent bookstore? If you have a BAM I would suggest checking out the discount section, it’s where I’ve been picking up books that been on my TBR pile for months and it light on my pocket. Mine changes out books all the time or simply the discount books goes out so I try to look there before my Teen section.

      I WISH I had a BAM near me. There’s one near my dad’s house that I used to visit whenever I went to see him and I loved it there! Their $4 hardcovers are the bomb dot com. Right now though, I’m stuck with shopping online as I don’t drive and neither does my husband (until September, anyway.)
