Hi everyone! So I have decided that I am putting myself on a book buying ban. The reason for this is I just don’t have the money to be constantly buying books and I live right by the local library so I want to borrow books rather than buying them. I will say that the rules aren’t hugely strict as I am excluding books I already have on pre-order as they will come out of my wage for this month that I will put automatically onto my amazon account. Here are my rules:
- I will not buy any new books unless they are from the charity shop for £1.
- I will only read books I own, have received as an ARC from netgalley or borrowed from the library (excluding four pre-orders).
I hope to possibly keep this ban until the end of august. Its a big task but I am up to the challenge. With that, I thought I would share the books that I will be reading over this time broken down into books I own, ARCs, pre-orders and library books.

There you have it! I am hoping to be able to keep up this ban the best that I can. I might slip up here or there but I will try my hardest. Have you put yourself on any kind of spending ban? How did you find it? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
