It’s the end of another month, which means it’s time to talk about my haul for the month!
- Nothing this month~
I checked, and this is my smallest ARC haul since June of 2018. Two whole years! Can you believe? I know 11 review copies is still a lot, and I’d love to keep it below 10 per month starting in July, but I’m still really proud of how much better I’m doing with my ARC limitations lately.

I’m still not buying physical books much right now, but I do have a few things I ordered this month that are on backorder and won’t show up until July’s haul.

We also bought an Xbox One this month, but we haven’t been able to play it because we received a completely unusable defective device and it’s currently on its way to a Microsoft repair center to be serviced. 😫 Long story, but don’t buy consoles from ANT Online, y’all. Just… go to Best Buy or some shit. I wish we had. ANT has literally some of the worst customer service of my life.
