August 2017 Book Haul!

Palm Reading

Hey there! Can you believe August is already over?! Where did the time go? With that being said, it’s time to reveal the massive book haul. So many amazing ebooks were on sale this month so I snagged A LOT.

Normally I post little book descriptions in these posts but for time’s sake, I will only share the picture of the books today.

Most of the books I have this month were books that I bought for free for my Kindle on Amazon. There are also a couple that I have received for free from authors and publishers in exchange for an honest review.

So are you ready to see what I hauled in this month?

Let’s get started! Continue reading
