I know you're all like, Wren, you already have about a million books on your bookshelves that are unread. And yes, that is quite true. I open up about my book buying addiction in this post.

However, while I keep buying books, I don't think it's too much to worry about as long as I have enough room in my home and I regulate my spending. Essentially, most of my personal or non-essential spending is on books.... so what others would spend on makeup or video games or going to the movie theater, I spend on books. Considering it like that, I've come to realize that so long as I budget efficiently, I have nothing to worry about. And yeah I budgeted super well, as I mentioned. Plus all of these books were on sale in one way or another. So.....yeah.

Zodiac (Zodiac, #1)

Lots of these books have awesome covers. But I really like the cover of Zodiac! I can't stop looking at it.

I got lots of sequels that I've been wanting to read, so that's great too. And lots of books I've had on my to-read list for years have shown up in thrift stores, so that's awesome as well.

My question to all of you: what did you get in your latest books haul?
