Hey friends! Sorry about not really posting last week. I ended up coming down with a cold and took a couple of sick days to rest and get better. Now that I’m feeling healthy and well rested, I wanted to pop on here and share some of the books I have recently bought. I’ve recently acquired quite — by accident of course. 😉
So, a couple of weeks ago one of my friends and I decided to pop into a few thrift stores and one of the thrift stores we went into had a book sale going on — buy four get the fifth one free — so I HAD to buy five. 😉 They were:
White Teeth by Zadie Smith
Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen
In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
This is for Women who Don’t Give a Fuck by Janne Robinson
Then, a few days later I popped into one of my favorite used bookstores and found these three books.
THEN, I heard Barnes & Noble was having a big blowout sale, so of course I had to pop in and see if I could find any gems, and of course I did. They were:
The Butchering Art: Joseph Lister’s Quest to Transform the Grisly World of Victorian Medicine by Lindsey Fitzharris
The Sisters of the Winter Wood by Rena Rossner
The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
Jane Austen: Four Classic Novels by Jane Austen
My mom then sent me a gift card to Barnes & Noble last week, so I uhhhh of course had to put it to good use…..here’s what I found:
Shades of Magic: Volume 1: The Steel Prince by V.E. Schwab
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
Red Sister by Mark Lawrence
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
FINALLY here are some Kindle e-books I picked up recently — most were on sale or a daily deal. I did have a few pre-orders come in that I forgot about. oops!
The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan
Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters
Shadowcaster by Cinda Williams Chima
Deathcaster by Cinda Williams Chima (pre-order)
When We Caught Fire by Anna Godberson
Annnnnd that’s it, and to be honest, I think that is way too much. I definitely think I overdid it these last couple of months, and will probably not buy any books for at least a month or two. I say this now, but my local library’s used book sale is next weekend — hehe.
I tried to get some books that are out of my normal reading comfort zone as a way to find new authors, books, and genres. I haven’t read any of these yet as I’m still trying to catch up on some black logs.
However, I would love to hear from you. Have you read any of these books? What would you recommend I start with?
Until next time!
