Heave Ho, Heave Ho, It's a Hoarder's Life For Me ♪♫


This is going to be a quick post, as I have places to be today! However, I was just cleaning my car and pulled out every single one of the above books. Now, as a bookseller, we get the privilege of acquiring ARCs (Advanced Reader's Copies) of books that haven't come out yet. On top of that, sometimes we get finished copies too! For a bookseller, this is HEAVEN. Until you get home that is.

I think in the back of my mind, that if I just leave books in my car, I don't have a problem. But I do. Taking these books out today, made me realize that I have NO SPACE in my room. This does not mean that I am going to give them away, however. OH NO. I am going to fill every nook in my little room with these little blocks of joy. I have a problem. I know I do. Yet, every time a cool new middle grade, or adult biography, or YA romance....or just about any other book that looks cool, enters my vicinity, I MUST HAVE IT.

I thought I had become a more picky reader. I thought I had gotten past my hoarding. I even did a massive give-away just a few years ago-donating to a local book festival. I guess not. Book hoarding will always be my beautiful flaw.

I want to give a shout out to the above author's for slipping past my cracking metaphorical shield. Check below for a full list of the above titles, links to where you can get them, and the dates of when some of them will be coming out.

I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday night!
