What’s Hauling Recently?
April/May 2016 Book Haul
We’re in June already but I’m posting about the past two months hauls because I’m good at this timing and blogging thing.
Are there any books listed I must read? Let me know!
Oh…dude. I just realized I never posted my April haul. Such a fail. Half were oldies at the time I hauled them but I’m super grateful to have received them! Some of them will be siphoned out (and have already been given away) to fellow bloggers around my area (Toronto, specifically) because I definitely would not be able to read them all haha.
I’ll summarize each book with it’s premise in a few words. (I haven’t read most of these so it’ll be what I grasp from GR blurb).
