I swear the bookshop at Heathrow is impossible to pass by.
I could easily have picked up several Le Carre and several Christie novels, but my inner voice of reason won this morning.
Instead, I went for these two.
My last book-haul was in November so I'm like wayyyy behind on it and pretty much everything else.
It seems it is taking a bit to get me back to the everyday and on top of everything blogging style if I ever back to the way it was. Because I like the more relaxed style a lot too lol.
Okay now to the books I received or bought in the last 6 months. I should note that it was December and I got a lot of books or gift cards for my Birthday and then Christmas otherwise there is no way it be this many.
I will add the picture first and then list the books :)
The Wrath and the Dawn & The Rose & the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh, Paper Princess, Broken Prince and Twisted Palace by Erin Watt and The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater all were bought with gift cards that I received, Thank you :)
The first the books in the Raven Cycle Series by Maggie Stiefvate , The Raven Boys, The Dream Thieves and Blue Lily, Lily Blue were Christmas presents.
Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco I picked on sale in Target.
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli I bought so I can watch it before the movie. P.S. I read and loved the book. Movie....... I have yet to watch it lol.
Also if anyone knows if that was the last book in the series, please let me know. I didn't think it was but I can't find any info about it.
Unraveled by Kate Jarvik Birch and True Storm by L.E. Sterling were sent by Entangled Teen. Thank you !! The Cruel Prince by Holly Black, Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi, The Empress by S.J. Kincaid and A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas were all my purchases
The next ten books are all e-copies..... I think I had more but to be honest I could have forgotten some. But I know the books here, I had for sure and 8 out of the 10 were ARCs from publishers.I also had some library loans audio or otherwise but I'm not gonna list them since they are just loans and really the list would be never ending lol.
Forget You by Nina Crespo, Liflelike by Jay Kristoff, The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton, True Born and True North by L.E. Sterling, This Heart of Mine by C.C. Hunter, Until You're Mine by Cindi Madsen and Wild Hunger by Chloe Neill were review copies from publishers through Netgalley. Thank you !!! Pestilence by Laura Thalassa and Warcross by Marie Lu were kindle purchases.
I mentioned already that I celebrated my recent hankering for a bit of Forster by acquiring matching editions of his novels. Well, they arrived earlier this week. :D
I am not sure I should add them to Mt. TBR, because I evidently mean to keep them and some of them are going to be re-reads.
They're all pre-owned, but sadly not pre-loved (or lucky for me, I guess). I doubt they have ever even been opened. Poor dears.
This weekend I downloaded three contemporary romances from OverDrive. Two I read in about 24 hours each; the third I DNF at the 9% mark. I think I got my reading mojo back. Today I went to volunteer at the library (something I haven't done all March because of adult taskings); after, I decided to browse the fiction side for a change.
I came home with 12 books (8 adult fiction titles, 1 middle grade that will fill a PS prompt, 1 graphic novel) plus I still have four books coming to me via ILL. In my defense, I was left unsupervised in a library.
Here's what I brought home:
1. George by Alex Gino (the MG for PS prompt)
2. Paper Girls (Book One) by Brian K. Vaughn et al (collects the first 10 issues)
3. Death on Tap (Sloan Krause Mystery #1) by Ellie Alexander
4. Once Upon a Spine (A Bibliophile Mystery) by Kate Carlisle
5. A Perfect Proposal by Katie Ffjorde
6. Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz
7. Dark Harbor (Stone Barrington Novel) by Stuart Woods
8. The Miner's Lady (Land of Shining Water #3) by Tracie Peterson
9. One Wish (A Thunder Point Novel) by Robyn Carr
10. Island Girls by Nancy Thayer
11. Family Tree by Susan Wiggs
12. Night Road by Kristin Hannah
