Good morning everyone! I haven’t done a good ole book haul post in quite a while! The truth is, I haven’t really purchased a bunch of books at one time in a while. This past week I did purchase quite a lot of books (a trip to Barnes & Noble will do that to you) and I figured I would share with you. Some of these have been on my list for a while, others are spur of the moment interest. I picked up a total of 7 books for myself.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote : I’ve been wanting to read more Capote ever since In Cold Blood. I love his use of language and the way he can describe even the most mundane of things. This was next on my list to pick up!
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty: This book is another that has been on my list for a little while now to pick up and read. I know that HBO has a TV Show that was just started and I do plan on watching it at some point. I wanted to read the book first and all I’ve heard are good things!
The Last of August by Brittany Cavallaro: While this wasn’t an impulse buy as I’ve been eyeing this one since it came out mid February. I loved the first one (you can see my review HERE), but I typically like paperback rather than hardcover books. I was going to wait a little longer till the paperback version was available, but I couldn’t resist when I saw it in the store.
On Writing by Stephen King: This was an impulse buy! I’m a big fan of Stephen King and when I read that this was part memoir and part master master class I knew instantly that I wanted to read it. I’m very much interested in reading it in the coming months.
The Autobiography of Henry VIII by Margaret George: I originally thought this was an impulse buy, but upon looking through my phone and lists, I realized this has actually been on my list for quite a while! I am obsessed with English History and with Tudor and Elizabethan England. I am very glad that I have picked this one up and I have one other on my list that I want to get, but simply haven’t.
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy: I usually try to pick up a classic when I have a larger book haul. I am working on reading through quite a few of them and want to build up the classics in my library. War and Peace has been on my list for quite a while and this copy was too pretty to pass up!
Auschwitz and After by Charlotte Delbo, Translated by Rosette C. Lamont: I’ve heard of this book only recently, but everything that I have heard is nothing short of how phenomenal it really is. I instantly knew that I wanted to read it and did not hesitate to pick it up!
Those are all of the books that I have picked up in the last week! Have you gotten any new books lately? I’d love to hear about any you’ve picked up!
