May 2016 Bookish Life Budget

In May I decided to cut out one of my events. I’m wavering on another. I’m so social lately! 😉

Category Amount Spent this Month Remaining Balance
B&N Membership Renewal $0.00 $0.00 $0.00
Readers & ‘Ritas 2016 Event Ticket $180.37 $0.00 $180.37
Buns & Roses $0.00 $0.00 $0.00
Boas & Tiaras $52.24 $0.00 $52.24
Audible Subscription $198.72 $24.84 $173.88
Books (Ebooks, paperbacks & hardcovers) $222.15 $33.11 $189.04
Total: $653.48 $57.95 $595.53
My book spending was up a little this month. I actually bought a few hardcovers that I had in ebook just for my shelves. It was that damn Half Price Books 20% off sale over the Memorial Day weekend. Plus Darkest Torment came out on the 31st. I had to have that one! So here we go with the book haul for May that somehow got out of control!

I’m a little disappointed in my Divine Misdemeanors purchase. I am collecting the Anita Blake in hardcover, but Merry Gentry in paperback. Now I’ve confused the whole thing by having a Merry Gentry in hardcover. I will have to do something about that but I haven’t figured it out quite yet.

So tell me! What goodies did you get this month? I have so many I’m looking forward to digging into that this reading slump is killing me. I failed miserably at the May’s Clean Sweep ARC event. I think I need to find one of those books that just totally blows me away and I think that will jump start me. The audiobooks I’ve been listening have been keeping my attention, it’s the ebooks that are getting me.

I hope everyone has a great month and be sure to share your haul with me in the comments! I’d love to hear what you all hauled!
