Top Ten Times I Almost Broke My Book Buying Ban in June

Guess who is on a book buying ban this month! ME! This is me recounting a few of the times I nearly broke that ban throughout the month for Top Ten Tuesday Freebie.

1) On day one when I went on Amazon and saw Jennifer L. Armentrout's Covenant Series was SUPER cheap. - It is in fact still cheap and taunting me daily.

2) During that Book Outlet Summer Reading Sale - Phew guys this was a close one!! I had a cart together and everything.

3) When my mom offered to go to the book store with me. - She offered to go! She never does that! (I then had to explain what a book buying ban was)

4) When the price of Hamiltome kept going up - Hamiltome is my reward for keeping up this ban for the whole month. If it got obscenely expensive, I was going to break or cry

5) This moment right now. Today.

6) When A Dance With Dragons was on $4.99- I just finished A Feast for Crows and need to know what happens next.

7) When Book Depository sent me an extra 5% site wide - So many UK editions to consider.

8) Saturday mornings in bed when I can't sleep - This is a normal time for me to shop for books. Sadly I couldn't buy any of those books.

9) When I was watching June book hauls and everyone had amazing new books.

10) After my Owl Crate came - After that box of bookish goodies arrived on my doorstep (The only book I was going to purchase this month) it was really hard not to buy more.

*Also when I wrote this post. 


  1. I know exactly how you feel! Trying to stick to a book buying ban is impossible! I have more books than I can read in a year on my shelf and on my kindle but I still neeeed more! My TTT

    1. I have so many unread books I just wanted to stop the flood for a month. Its been fun but I am ready for June to be over!

  2. That Book Outlet sale almost got me too! I'm trying so hard to stick to my monthly book budgeted allowance, but it's sooo hard! Especially during sales! Great list! Here's mine. Happy reading!

    1. It was tough. I hope you can stick to that budget. That's my plan after this ban is over. Gotta reduce that TBR again.

  3. Wow...kudos to you for your month long ban! That's awesome. I've been trying to keep my purchases to a minimum but I've not actually gone on a ban! And especially with A Dance with Dragons being so cheap. That would have been tough. Good job!

  4. Wow, well done on your month long ban! I can't stop myself from buying books, I literally don't have that much self control!

    1. It was super super tough, but I'm glad I did it. Just two more days then I might go a little crazy. hahaa
