I ended picking up a few used books and e-books this month, nothing too crazy. Well, okay, maybe I went a little crazy and downloaded several free e-books. I am not going to go into much detail with the e-books because they pretty much are all new adult. I will leave links to goodreads so you can read more about them.
Lets start off with the list of e-books I downloaded this month.
The Money Game by Adam Smith
Don’t You Cry by Mary Kubica
I did download this for $2 and have since read it and thought it was good but I did like The Good Girl better. Don’t You Cry is about a girl, Esther, that goes missing and her roommate Quinn is left to find answers. It also follows the perspective of a teenager, Alex, who befriends a mysterious girl that shows up at the coffee shop he works at.
They were having a used book sale at a local mall and so, of course I had to stop by and check it out. I did find four books I liked not as many as I was hoping for but there wasn’t much of a good selection. These four books are in pretty good condition and came to a whopping $6 dollars.
I have heard great things about this book and it has been turned into a movie with Chloe Grace Moretz, which looks good. Brian on Fire is a memoir of Susannah’s month of madness. At the age of 24 she wakes up in a hospital and unsure how she got there. She has been labeled as violent, psychotic and a flight risk. She becomes a medical mystery and the doctors aren’t sure what is wrong with her because all the test comeback as her being completey healthy. Can’t wait to read and then watch the movie.
I am not really too sure what compelled me to pick this up and probably won’t be reading anytime soon. I think maybe because it was only $1 and it was the winner of the Pulitzer Prize. Not too sure what this one is about but what I can gather from the back is it is a family drama spanning three generations and follows the story of Calliope/Cal. Maybe one day I will get to this one.
Whenever I see an Alice Hoffman book I must pick it up because I enjoy her storytelling. The Marriage of Opposites is the story of Rachel and how she dreams of Pairs but dreams of Pairs seem unlikely because she is married off to a widower and his three children to save her fathers business. Her husband passes away and Francis, his nephew, comes from France to settle his estate. Sezied with an opportunity Rachel starts an affair that will affect her whole family.
The Nature of the Beast is the 11th book in Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series. I am not sure if it is okay to start at the 11th book but Katie from a Life Between Words on BookTube recommends her books. And I trust her book recommendations, so, when I seen this in great condition for $2 I had to get it.
Novel Destinations: Literary Landmarks from Jane Austen’s Bath to Ernest Hemingway’s Keywest by Shannon McKenna Schmidt and Joni Rendon
I picked this up for $3 at Dollarrama and I figure for that price I might as well. And I am sure it will be interesting to read these literary landmarks and maybe one day I will get the chance to visit them.
I picked up the season 1 &2 book at a used book store for $20 and then picked up the season 3 &4 book for $15 at Chapters. I am obessed with Game of Thrones and couldn’t not buy these. They are so beautiful and have read a little bit of them and have found out some interesting things about the show.
That brings us to the end my June Book Haul I hope you all enjoyed reading. Let me know what books you recently bought in the comments below. 🙂
