Book Haul--8-27-17

It's been a while since I've shown off my new acquisitions, so I thought I'd throw together a book haul post.  Also, it's more fun than working on some homework.  :)

Since our last Book Haul back in July, I have acquired the following:

This is my non-fiction stack.

I read two of Moran's books over the summer--she is a delight!  Now I own all three.  I haven't started Moranifesto yet, but will probably do so soon.  Legendary Authors is a lovely volume.  It briefly profiles authors who are known for their clothing.  I'm still reading it, but yes, I have read the Joan Didion entry.  :)  Girl, Interrupted was difficult to put down.  It's the only one in my haul that I have finished.  Heat and Cork Dork just looked like a lot of fun.  I haven't had a ton of time to cook lately, but I think these might help me vicariously live in the kitchen.  First They Killed My Father I picked up after reading the (somewhat controversial) Angelina Jolie interview in the September issue of Vanity Fair.

Here's my fiction books.

I cannot quite remember why I bought Room, but it sounds really interesting.  I purchased the Dostoevsky after watching the Mark Wahlberg film with the same name.  I just knew it was based on some novella and once I figured out whose, I pounced.  I bought the Conrad because he keeps coming up in all of the Joan Didion stuff I've been reading.  Except! This volume doesn't have the novella Victory, which I most wanted to read.  Whatever.  The three Didions--I might have a bit of an obsession.  She's just so wonderful and raw.  Another Brooklyn has just been popping up on my radar a lot, so I bought a copy, easy peasy.

There you have it--my recent acquisitions.

What have you gotten lately?

  3. I read Room way back when it first came out. I don’t remember it very well, but I’m pretty sure I liked it. Enjoy your new books!
