And it’s book haul time!! I’ve been very particular this year about my book buying – out of my zeal to cut down my unread books – so I’ve been doing my book hauls quarterly this year. These are all the books I accumulated over the last three months – some of which I bought myself, and some I was gifted by my friends on my birthday.
Not Only the Things That Have Happened – Mridula Koshy
This book has been on my radar since last year, and I finally got around to buying it in the bookstore I most often frequent. I know that this is a sad story, and it’s about family life in some small village in India. This is one of the books I’m not super interested in reading tbh, but I will hopefully get around to it sometime. I just bought it in a moment of haste.
Tess of D’Ubervilles – Thomas Hardy
I’ve always wanted to read something by Hardy, and I have no idea where to start from – so decided on this book. Hopefully, it’ll end up to be an amazing read.
Made You Up – Francesca Zappia
I was sent this for review by the publisher and I’ve already read and reviewed it. It’s a YA contemporary featuring a girl with schizophrenia and her experience at her new high school. I think the book portrayed the mental illness well but the rest of the story failed to impress me.
Rebecca – Daphne Due Maurier
I read this 3-4 years back and absolutely loved it. I’ve always wanted to buy a copy for myself, and I finally managed to grab it at a low price online. I really want to give this a reread soon – hopefully this year itself!
Six of Crows – Leigh Bardugo
I read this duology last year and it blew me away. Easily my favorite YA fantasy series. I really wanted to own a copy of this, so when this appeared online in paperback for a low price, I had to grab it!
Commonwealth – Ann Patchett
This book released last year, and I bought it online on a whim when I read the summary. It’s a family drama, and I absolutely love family dramas – so I’m very excited to give this one a go!
Tuff – Paul Beatty
I was gifted this on my birthday. I own one other Paul Beatty book – The Sellout – and I’m excited to have both. I know absolutely nothing about this book, but have wonders about Paul Beatty.
Domina – L.S. Hilton
This is the sequel to Maestra and all I know is that these two books are erotic thrillers. I was gifted this on too, and hopefully will get to it soon!
Homegoing – Yaa Gyasi
I bought this in a beautiful hardcover edition for cheap – and it’s a beautiful book. I’ve already read it, and it has become one of my favorite books of the year so far. Highly, highly, highly recommend this.
ACOWAR – Sarah J Maas
This is the finale to Rhys and Feyre’s story in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series and I loved it. I did have a few problems with it, and I still like ACOMAF the best, but I loved reading it nevertheless.
Into the Water – Paula Hawkins
I was gifted this book too – and I cannot wait to read this book. I loved her previous book The Girl on the Train and this one looks just as promising!
Ivanhoe – Walter Scott
I was gifted this too, and though I’ve heard about this classic – I know absolutely nothing about it :P
So these are all the books I received/bought lately! I don’t like how my books are accumulating, I really want to cut down on my unread books – however I also have this need to buy at least some books every few weeks.
