A mostly nostalgic book haul. Excuse my awkwardness and sound quality. It has been a while. Also, it is hot, so I wasn't going to turn off my fans!! If you have an OCD about stickers on books, you've been warned. (I do, but some of the stickers are a pain to remove!)

The Post Where ...

I try to commit to a month of TBR busting.


Happy Saturday!


It is the height of the Scottish summer, and after some very unusually warm and very dry weeks (!), we woke up to this today:

Apparently, I slept right through a night of thunder and lightning without so much as a stir. 


Mind you, I am glad it has finally rained. It was getting seriously dry and we have had issues with wild fires, etc. that come with a lack of rain over a prolonged period. 


So, this downpour has been great. 


It's been quite a day here at BT HQ -filled with filling in forms, despairing over lack of guidance how to fill in the blasted forms, and finally resigning from the damned paperwork to meet a friend in town for tea and ice cream to try and forget the frustration caused by the stupid admin requirements.


After I vented my woes, we stopped by Waterstones and I picked up three books (The Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikibu, The Selected Poems of Rumi, and The Seabird's Cry by Adam Nicolson).



As much as love the new books, I came home to realise that buying new books is counter-productive to the ongoing efforts to reduce Mt. TBR. So, I have resolved the following:


1. I will not add the new books to Mt. TBR. Chances are that I will read these sooner than later except for The Tale of Genji, which I think will make up the centrepiece of  a reading project next year. (I just couldn't pass on the opportunity to buy the paperback version at my local bookshop instead of having to order it online next year.) 


2. I need to spend some serious time working on the current Mt. TBR. Therefore: August shall be dedicated to reading as many books on Mt. TBR as I can, without - hopefully - getting sidetracked with library books or those lovelies that you guys make me look at in your bookish blog posts. 


August is going to be one tough month.

Heathrow Mini Haul

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.

Huge Overdue Book Haul


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 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. 




This Savage Song & Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab and Nevernight & Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff were also Christmas Presents. 

Scythe and Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman  I got of Amazon when Thunderhead was released.

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 !!!
