Stacking the Shelves #86: March Book Haul Part 1

Hello fellow bookgeeks :)

It snowed! AGAIN!!!
Look, I looove winter, sweaters, scarves and snow. But! I've had enough already, I need it to be spring when the calendar says it's suppose to be spring! Please!!!  My old bones can't handle the bitter cold anymore, lol!

It's been a rough couple of weeks for me. I just feel like I've been in this rut, a somber kind of mood, that's been hard to climb out of... I blame the germs we've had for so long. And the weather, of course...

Another great week in books! More trades/swaps were made to add to my Lauren Oliver and Maggie Stiefvater collection :) I am SO thrilled!!! A big thank you to all who have contributed in any way!!!
Hope you all have had a wonderful time in books too :)
