Once again, I've acquired SO many books through my wily means. I've bought quite a few, been gifted some, and I've traded quite a few as well (though some aren't here yet). I've also read quite a lot, so don't think I'm just acquiring all of these books just because. I'm so excited about these books!
Here are the books I received, bought, and traded for.
- We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal
- I bought this through the Book of the Month club! I'm so excited to read this book!
- Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
- I purchased this from Good Choice Reading! I'm so excited to have another Kristoff/Kaufman book signed! I cannot wait to read this for the last Biannual Bibliothon Read-a-Thon!
- Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
- I actually acquired 2 copies of this book this month! One was a preorder and the other (which is pictured) is the OwlCrate edition. My regular edition is being lent out to Julia who is reading it for our book club!
- Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young
- Guys! Another OwlCrate edition! This is actually an exclusive new cover, signed, and so pretty! I acquired this through a Twitter trade!
- Beyond the Shadowed Earth by Joanna Ruth Meyer [ARC]
- This was graciously sent to me by Page Street for a review. This lovely book comes out in January! I cannot wait to read it! Joanna is such a fantastic writer!
- Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman
- Alex and I have been wanting to pick this book up for a while, so while he was away for the week I snagged us two copies from Books A Million. I'm so excited to read this book. It looks phenomenal.
- Call It What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer
- I preordered this gorgeous book soon after finishing A Curse So Dark and Lonely. I plan on reading this in the next few days! I love bingeing Kemmerer's contemporaries!
- Ask Again Yes by Mary Beth Keane
- This is another BOTM pick! It sounds so intriguing! I cannot wait to dive in!
- The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
- I went to an amazing sale at the beginning of the month and I found this 1st edition hardback for $2! How could I pass that up!?
- How to Walk Away by Katherine Center
- Another BOTM pick! I'm such a sucker for adult romance! This just sounded so fantastic! Not to mention, Taylor Jenkins Reid RAVED about this on the BOTM site!
- The Song of Achilles by Margaret Rogerson
- I actually got to meet Madeline Miller a few days ago! She spoke about her work for about an hour and then signed. I got my copy of Circe signed and then I bought a copy of The Song of Achilles for Alex and me, as well as a copy of Circe for him.
- Famous in a Small Town by Emma Mills [ARC]
- This is also another book I acquired through a Twitter trade! I feel so blessed!
- Eleanor Oliphant is Okay by Gail Honeyman
- I'm so excited to read this! A huge shoutout to the BOTM swap group that has blessed me with so many awesome swaps!
- The Cactus by Sarah Haywood
- This book sounds so good! I cannot wait to get to it in July. Reese Witherspoon actually sold me on this book. It's her book club's June pick! I'm sad that I couldn't fit it into my June reading, but I'm definitely reading it in July.
- The History of Jane Doe by Michael Belanger
- This sounds so fascinating. Thank you Michael Balanger for the copy! Stay tuned for a review, all.
- Waiting for Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfrey
- Thank you, Berkley, for the gifted copy! I had the pleasure of reviewing WFTH through NetGalley and I really enjoyed this book. Don't forget to check out my review!
- The Grief Keeper by Alexandra Villasante
- I had the pleasure of interviewing Alexandra for a blog post in early June. She and Putnam sent me a complimentary copy to review. I cannot wait to dive into this one. It sounds so freaking good.
- The Moderne Faerie Tales by Holly Black
- Another pre-order! I cannot wait to read these books! I've already started Tithe and I'm honestly iffy.
