March Haul Building with Books: Building my dream house of books one book (or more) at a time~

banner-weekly-wrapup

So I won’t be around when this gets posted. I’ve been waiting for so long, but the day has finally come. I’m going on a vacation! I’m going to the beach! What will I be doing at the beach? Why I’ll be reading of course! :P I’ll probably be back home by Sunday afternoon.

And here are the babies I plan to enjoy (as well as a couple of ebooks maybe):

I hope all of you will be enjoying your weekends as well. My week was pretty okay. It rained, which was weird since it’s supposed to be summer season soon. Summer here is at April-May. I also got a sore throat, which was bad for all the eating I wanted to do. :P I read The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith, which was amazing. But I can’t post my review until April, which is when the tour would be held. I didn’t read much though so I’m really excited for the vacation. It will be my own personal read-a-thon. Or so I hope.
