I am not a big purveyor of shoes, bags or clothes even. I prefer to get a few things that I truly like and wear a lot and spend the extra money on other things. Like Books!!! I never understood how people don’t own any books or even frequent the library. Blows my mind there are people walking around don’t have anything to do with books. I don’t remember a time where I didn’t own books. My own collection has grown and shrunk as I have moved or gotten rid of books that I will not read again. I own a few different editions of books I truly love like We Have always Lived at the Castle or The Wildwood Trilogy which I own digitally. I wave my book nerd/geek flag high.
Books that I purchased in January:
-Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night by Jen V Campbell
– Nights at the Circus by Angela Carter
– Hero’s and Villains by Angela Carter
– The Book Collector by Alice Thompson
– Caraval by Stephen Garber
– Grimms Tales by Philip Pullman
– Golden Compass by Philip Pullman
– We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson (Penguin Orange Collection)
– The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm translated and edited by Jack Zipes
– The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden (UK edition)
– The Wildwood Trilogy by Colin Meloy
– The Whiz Mob and the Gernadine Kid has By Colin Meloy
This may seem like a lot but I had some Christmas and Birthday money which I choose as always to spend on books.
Books that I got from the Library in January: (sorry I know I owe you money for the late fine)
– Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King
Concord Free Press which I am planning on giving to a friend when I have finished the book:
– Another Way to Fall by Brian Evenson and Paul Tremblay
I am not going to list my ARCs in my hauls as I feel that it is a privilege to read an ARC. I write up a review for them and will be including them in my monthly wrap up.
Any questions about any of the books in my haul contact me I am always happy to talk about books.
