Letterbox Love

January Book Haul

Good Morning lovely people! I hope all is well in the world of books and blogs!

I realised this morning that I hadn’t done a Letterbox Love for around 6 weeks and thats bad, I know. I wanted to but being busy and not having much time for blogging has left me a little behind. After thinking about it I know I’m not going to have much time at all from now on so I am going to stop doing a weekly Letterbox Love and just do a monthly book haul. This post is a little bit of a lie because I did get some of these books for Christmas and during December but from now on it will be a monthly post. So without further ado let me share my books!
