Apparently Monthly Book Haul // March, 2017.

What's up, guys?!

This blog is slowly becoming a book blog and I'm not even mad about it. You know, I'm not even going to justify it. I like books so I'm gonna buy some books. It could be worst, I could be buying drugs, alcohol (although, I still buy alcohol) or delicious brownies that would make me fat. But, no! I'm buying books because I want to be a well-read lady and there's nothing wrong with that.. Unless you're buying excessive amounts of books and not reading - which is not the case for me, NOT AT ALL.

Anyway, I know I've been focusing a lot on the book aspect of this blog and I'm sorry for those of you who are more interested in the makeup/beauty posts. I still love doing those, but I've been on a weird/uninspired phase with my makeup and I've been using the same products constantly in order to get them out of my life so I can feel inspired again. I promise you, those posts are coming, I still love makeup, we're just on a weird relationship hiatus. 

About the books, I just couldn't help myself. I've been really good about my spending habits and being a minimalist, but I cannot pass on a good book sale. It's just physically impossible for me and I hope we can all rejoice in my addiction since that means more blog content for my book lovers out there. Having said that, I didn't go all crazy. I got 7 books in total and one of them was only one dollar and I think we can all agree that that's hardly going to break my bank. 

Thirteen Reasons Why - Jay Asher // I've been seeing this book going around the booktube community but it never really caught my attention. A lot of people were saying that it was really good, but I get really sad reading about suicide and bullying so I try to avoid it, although I do think it's an important topic. What really sparked my attention again to this book was the fact that it's going to become a movie really soon and, apparently, Selena Gomez is producing it, which is pretty cool. I know I'm going to like it, but I'm kind of putting it off because it looks like it's going to be extremely sad.  

The Grownup - Gillian Flynn // I bought this book last night and now I'm kind of regretting it. It's not even a book, it's more of a short story (about 65 pages), but it's priced like a book - I think I paid 10 dollars on my Kindle. The main reason why I got it was because I need a quick read. I'm two books behind my Reading Challenge, and I know this is not a good reason for buying a book, but I'm just being honest here. The reviews are mostly good, so I'm not feeling that bad about it.  

This Savage Song - V. E. Schwab // I think this is the fourth V. E. Schwab book I've bought and I haven't read any of them. I got this on a major sale, so... But I do plan on reading it! I've heard nothing but great things about her writing and her stories, so I'm pretty excited to read them, I just haven't yet. I have no idea what this book is about, but.. hey, the cover is super nice, right?  

A Thousand Boy Kisses - Tillie Cole // I need some YA Romance in my life asap. I miss reading this kind of super-cute-cheesy romance and think this is the way to go. I blame Jessica from PeaceLoveBooks for this purchase because she said it was amazing and I really trust her opinion when it comes to romances. 

Uglies - Scott Westerfeld // I've been wanting to read this book for soooo long and now that I go it I don't even remember why. It's been on my wishlist for ages and I finally decided to get it. I know there's some controversy around it, because in this world when you turn a certain age you get operation to become pretty? I think that's it, don't quote me on that.  I'm not pro or against plastic surgery.. It's you face so it's your choice. But, it's fiction and I honestly think this is a pretty interesting premise for a book, specially nowadays.  

It's Kind of a Funny Story - Ned Vizzini // This book sounds funny. I've never seen the movie nor do I want to (not a big fan of Emma Roberts), but I've read the little description of it and seems really interesting. It has a really big rating on GoodReads and the reviews are mostly positive. I have high hopes for it and really don't want to be disappointed     

Shatter Me - Tahereh Mafi // I know I'm a little late to the Shatter Me party, but I try to avoid reading books when they're being hyped up on the internet because I always get my hopes up and then I end up hating it. I decided to pick this one up now because, first it was on sale and, second I think I need some more YA in my life. I've been on a mini-reading slump lately and usually YA does the trick for me. Hopefully, I'll like it.

So, I guess that's it for today! These are all the books I've got this month and I'm feeling more excited about reading again after this mini-haul. Hopefully you enjoyed this post and let me know on the comments which books did you buy this month. I really want to know!
