I didn’t get many books this month. I’ve been trying to stop buying new books, which isn’t always possible, because I’ve gotten over 50 so far this year and I’m running out of room for them.
The first book I got this month was This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. I wanted to get this last month when I got These Broken Stars but couldn’t find a copy. Then a week later there it is, in the clearance sale with another sale on top of that. I think it had 30% off it’s clearance price and came to $7.50. So I’m glad I waited the extra week to get it.
I haven’t read these books yet. I’ve wanted to for a while and I had eBook copies of them but I still like to read physical copies of books even though my tablet is filled with eBooks. I have to start reading them soon.
I love the covers on these books. They’re so colourful. After all the library books, which is a never ending pile on my bookcase, I might read These Broken Stars.
The next books I got in the same clearance but a few weeks later when the sale on the clearance books were 50% off. I couldn’t pass up on a sale like that.
The first book I saw was Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid. I haven’t read it, which it probably why it caught my eye first. I’ve wanted to read it. I was approved to read Adi Alsaid’s Never Always Sometimes on NetGalley but haven’t gotten around to it yet. I think I might have to read this first. Not because they’re linked, but because I’ve wanted to read it longer.
The second book I picked up was Landline by Rainbow Rowell. I read Landline last year in one sitting. I really liked it. I don’t really know why, but I couldn’t put the book down. I’ve read three of Rainbow Rowell’s books, Landline, Attachments and Eleanor and Park (which I reviewed on here). I think I liked Eleanor and Park and Landline the most. I didn’t really like Attachments so I probably won’t get a copy of that. I do want my own copy of Eleanor and Park though. I also have Fangirl but haven’t read it yet.
And the last book I got was A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall. This one first got my attention on Instagram because someone said it was told in a squirrels point of view about a love story. I’m not really into love stories but I was kind of interested to see what the squirrel had to say. I think there are more POV than just the squirrel though. I’m not sure what I’ll think of it but for $3.50 I’m not sure it matters.
The last book came in the mail form a publishing company in New Zealand. This is the first time I’ve received a book in the mail in exchange for an honest review. Hachette New Zealand sent me The Father by Anton Svensson. I’ve read this book so that I have a review ready for when the book is released next month.
All I can say for now is that this book is inspired by a family in Sweden and what came from their story to inspire this one is completely crazy. But you’ll have to wait for my review next month to hear more. I’ll say now that it was a story that I was desperate to know the ending to.
So that’s it for July. I’m not sure what’s going to happen next month with me and books. I’m not expecting to buy many but I have said that before.
Have you read any of these books? Let me know what you thought of them in the comments.
