January Haul

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.

    I’m SO happy that I’m not the only book addict out there 😀 I read more non-fiction than fiction; quite a lot of history books but also some popular science and all kinds of other random “finds”. I’m home for two weeks at the moment between trips and most days see the postman arrive with more books for my motorhome “stash”…. Gonna go look at your more recent posts now….
