This has been a super huge haul month, and I don’t even feel slightly guilty! I went around the second hand shops a bit, made a book depository order, and got some books from publishers, so here is my august haul!
BOOKS FROM PUBLISHERS
WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI – HACHETTE NZ – A cute heartfelt rom com styled book about two indian american teenagers
LOVE HER WILD – HACHETTE NZ – A beautiful collection of poetry about love & loss by AtticusPoetry from instagram
I AM TRAITOR – HACHETTE NZ – A Dystopian-esque novel that has been translated from Icelandic!
THE CAUSE OF DEATH – HARPER NZ – A really gripping non fiction about the life of a pathologist and some of the most interesting cases he had dealt with! I loved this book.
THE LONLIEST GIRL IN THE UNIVERSE – WALKERBOOKSAUS – I thought this was a romance, but it’s really a thriller and I devoured it in a few hours, it was so good!
BEYOND THE WALL – WALKERBOOKSAUS – This is a book set in Rome about a slave I believe and from what I’ve read so far, it’s really interesting!
BOOKS I BROUGHT
CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE & CITY OF LOST SOULS – I wanted to complete the colourful collection before they all sold out since it was printed in limited quantities.
THE RAVEN BOYS – I have heard such mixed things about this and have been wanting to pick it up for ages so I finally did
THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE – BookDepo had this for 6$ and I’ve always wanted to try something by Neil Gaiman
THE LONG WAY TO A SMALL ANGRY PLANET – I have heard such amazing things about this so I just had to have it when I saw it was only 9$
AND THEN THERE WERE NONE – I wont like, it was the cool new covers that drew me in, but I’ve always wanted to try something by Agatha Christie
DEATHNOTE #1 – I wanted to try a manga and this was one that I had been interested in for a very long time so I finally got it!
HISTORY IS ALL YOU LEFT ME – Again I had heard amazing things about this & wanted to try out Adam’s works.
AT THIS POINT! I went out with a friend for the day and ended up buying quite a few second hand books (5 to be exact) and 5 came from my friend Aimiee!
