May 2017 Book Haul, Wrap-Up, June TBR and Bonus!!!


Hi there! I hope you are all doing well :)

I am slowly getting back into reading regularly and preparing more reviews and blog posts to share with you! I've been able to get back in touch with some publishers and a few bookish people to collaborate on some fun projects and blog posts too! I'm very excited for all of this and cannot wait to begin to share it all with you!!!

To start, here are the books I've accumulated in numerous ways for May :) 
I truly believe that this is the most amount of books that I have ever had to list in a book haul - not gloating - just amazed and feeling very happy and blessed!
