Hello bibliophiles! It is time for another book tag!

The Anonymous Bookaholics Tag

A huge thanks to Yna from Yna the Mood Reader for tagging me! This is going to be a quick tag and I hope it would be as fun as Yna’s. I totally enjoyed reading her answers.

Buying books has always been a huge relief for me. I feel satisfied and super happy when I get to purchase some books, especially those that on my wish list, which I will share in a while.

I am most happy when buying a new book, especially the smell of a brand new book! That is something that I really enjoy!

I don’t often buy that much books. It tends to depend on my financial capacity to buy new books, may it be brand new books or preloved books. So here are some instances that happened that see how often I buy books:

(1) When I was still working, I was being so out of myself that I bought a book or two or even more every month, not every payday though, that would be too much. My parents didn’t mind it because I was using my own money and it makes me happy.

(2) When I was still a student, I set aside my weekly allowance to buy one book per month. That alone satisfies me, so that’s that.

(3) Unemployed bitch, I have no capacity to buy books as often as I can. I try to help my parents sell some products and I get a commission from helping, so I save that up and buy a book. I also get books from my boyfriend as a gift, so that’s that and I don’t think that is considered buying new books.

I actually love both. I don’t love one over the other, instead both has their own perks that I love, but don’t hate:

(1) Bookstores just give me this sense of belonging. I could spend hours in bookstores, especially in Booksale that sells preloved books that I adore so much. Though that depends on who I’m with or if I’m alone. I just spend at least an hour to browse through one shelf after another when I have someone with me. But when I am alone, it takes hours, jumping from one bookstore to another because I just love spending so much time in bookstores. It’s my safe haven and my comfort zone when I’m down.

(2) Online Shopping is just so convenient and you don’t have to leave the comforts of you home when buying books, especially with what is happening in the world today. Bookstores can have great deals, but you can never deny how affordable and great quality some books can be. Preloved books are everywhere when online shopping.

There are just two huge bookshops in the country, but since I grew up enjoying the ambiance of one, I would say that is one of the two favorites bookshops. National Bookstore has such great deals, especially when having promos every year. Another bookshop that I couldn’t help but visit again and again, Book Sale. This is just the best place to find hidden gems.

5 – π™³πš˜ 𝚒𝚘𝚞 πš™πš›πšŽ-πš˜πš›πšπšŽπš› πš‹πš˜πš˜πš”πšœ?

I want to pre-order one book, Crescent City: House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas but since I am unemployed, I didn’t get the chance to pre-order. So now I have not pre-ordered anything nor will pre-order anything at the moment.

6 – π™³πš˜ 𝚒𝚘𝚞 πš‘πšŠπšŸπšŽ 𝚊 πš–πš˜πš—πšπš‘πš•πš’ πš‹πšžπš’πš’πš—πš πš•πš’πš–πš’πš?

I don’t have a buying limit because I just buy books when I have the capacity to.

It is manageable but my Goodreads TBR is not, but those are two different lists.

I have so much fun on top of my head but here are the top three that I need to have asap.

  • Clockwork Prince and Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
  • House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas
  • The Betrothed by Keira Cass

That was a fun thing to do! So let’s tag some people to do this tag:

And if you want to do this tag, consider yourself tagged!
