We haven't done a book haul in a while because.. well life. I haven't bought that many new books lately, but I thought I'd share the ones I have.
- Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness -- I've already read these and have different editions, but when one of your favorite series is back up for grabs with amazingly gorgeous matching covers... you buy them.
- A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab -- Who wouldn't buy a book by Schwab?
- Zeroes by Scott Westerfeld -- A tried and true author. I thought I'd give this one a shot.
- The Fold by Peter Clines -- I loved the author's other novel, 14. I've heard this one is just as bewitching.
- Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard -- I bought the first book in this series, but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet. I've heard marvelous things, so I went ahead and picked the second book up on impulse at Target. Hey... don't judge.
- The Inventions, Researches and Writings of Nikola Tesla -- I geek out at Barnes and Noble sometimes. Yup.
- Caesar by Adrian Goldsworthy -- My last copy got beat up pretty badly so... I had to buy another, right?
- The Greek Myths by Robin Waterfield -- I like Greek mythology. What can I say?
- The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber -- The author wrote The Crimson Petal and the White. Yeah, that's all I got.
- What is the What by Dave Eggers -- We all need a little more Dave in our lives.
- In the Heart of the Sea by Nathaniel Philbrick -- YES. Just... yes.
- Raging Sea by Micheal Buckley -- Another one of those, "I already have the first book, so why not?"
- The Witches: Salem, 1962 by Stacy Schiff -- FINALLY. I've been wanting to buy this book since it was released, but damn... hardcovers can get expensive. I caught this one on sale at Target and snatched it like a madwomen.
So... what books have you splurged on and bought yourself lately?
So far this month I've been really good and haven't bought anything. It won't last, though. This looks like a great haul, what are you going to read first?ReplyDelete
