Hi everyone! So it’s the last day of the month of August and as usual I wanted to share with you all the books that I purchased during the month of August. All images used in this post are the editions that I bought and they all link to its Goodreads page.
If you don’t know by now, Charles Dickens is one of my favorite authors so anything by him I will buy and I was lucky enough to buy this for a really cheap price.
I actually just purchased this book last month, but in a different edition. This is my second copy which is actually so much cheaper since I got it at the thrift store for only a dollar compared to the fifteen dollars I paid at Barnes and Noble!
This is my third copy of The Hobbit, the last two being the same but in a different edition. This is one of the few books that I have multiple copies of.
Other than Frigid which is a new adult book, this is my second book that I will be reading by Jennifer Armentrout aka J. Lynn. I’ve been hearing some good things about the series so I hope this one will not disappoint.
I haven’t even started the first book yet, but since there wasn’t much left in stock at Bookoutlet, I thought I’d purchased it ASAP since other book stores would cost more.
I usually hate it when a book is dubbed as the next this is that or blah blah meets blah… Basically this book is labeled as The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road. While I did not read the latter the part where it’s somewhat similar to The Handmaid’s Tale got me since I personally love that book. Besides this book was only $1.49 for a hardcover edition at Bookoutlet. Pretty good deal if you ask me. Oh and it’s a standalone! HAHA
I usually don’t read many what I would call “realistic fiction” but the premise of this book totally caught my interest.
I actually finished reading this book. While it’s predictable and the plot is nothing extraordinary, it’s definitely a cute read. And if you don’t know me by now, I love the romance trope that has pretend relationships that will eventually turn into something real. It’s one of my guilty pleasures when it comes to romance novels even though I rarely read them.
Premise sounded interesting so I’m like “why the hell not?”
I started reading the first twenty pages of this book but I’m finding myself bored with it to be honest. Hopefully it does get better. But the plot does sound promising. I just hope it will be well executed.
Appointment with Death and The Mystery of the Blue Train by Agatha Christie
I haven’t even read the first one, but how can I refuse a hardcover edition for only two bucks and it still looks so brand new!
This has been on my TBR for such a long time and now I finally get my hands on the first book!!
While romance isn’t my favorite thing to read, the premise of this book sounded really good. I actually just started reading this, although I have a feeling that this book will make me an emotional wreck…*sets a box of Kleenex next to my bed as I read this*
