May Book Haul and Wrap Up

Hello folks. Time for that dastardly book haul once again. The video is longish so if you don’t hate time but wish to see what I got, take a gander here. Also, I mumble a lot in the video but don’t worry, you’re not missing anything important.

And two others that weren’t mentioned but were bought.

I managed to get a number of books read mainly because they were all on the shorter side, some of them being picturebooks. Here are the books I read in no particular order.

  1. Loved your hurricane. In 2008 (I think I was 15 or 16?), Hurricane Ike ripped through Houston (southeast Texas gets wrecked by hurricane season on a pretty regular basis), and I went outside to watch it roll in… with my mother. She didn’t spank me, but it might’ve been because I was older than you were haha.

    So yeah I understand the fascination with hurricanes. Of the places I’ve moved since leaving Texas, none of them have hurricanes… Although now I’m in Oklahoma, they have tornadoes. It’s not the same, though.

    Off-topic, I know. Nice haul. So many books. I say as my jaw drops.


    1. I salute you for being able to get through it. Hurricanes are awesome for the amounts of energy they have though I wouldn’t wish to live through a destructive one. And you were with your mother! I snuck out and probably caused mine some anxiety, haha.
