Book Haul!!!!!!

Since we cannot go anywhere for our anniversary this year, I have a little extra. What to do with it? I ordered a bunch of books! And now that they are all here, OF COURSE I have to share it with y’all.

Let’s get right to it!

This book completes my Kimberley Freeman collection for now. Her other book does not look like it’s available in the US yet, so I will wait patiently. Or not so patiently. SIGH.

The Seven Sisters: Book One by [Lucinda Riley]

Been meaning to start this series now that it’s almost complete. Dual storyline series about a group of adopted sisters? Take my money.

Next Year in Havana by [Chanel Cleeton]

This also appears to be a series- three books in I believe. It looked interesting and has gotten good reviews.

The Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter: A Novel by [Hazel Gaynor]

Me and Hazel Gaynor have not had a good history reading wise. BUT I want to give this one a chance because the reviews are glowing and I have a bit of an obsession with lighthouses. Soooo….

That Summer: A Novel by [Lauren Willig]

Just love this cover and I liked the blurb. I have enjoyed Lauren Willigs other books.

Been meaning to read this for a while. I’m looking forward to this!

For my book projects I purchased:

Physical copy, it’s gorgeous. I’m going to have to find room for these books. I am in so much trouble… LOL

The Children of Hamlin (Star Trek: The Next Generation Book 3) by [Carter Carmen]

I bought this one on Kindle. I may collect them on Kindle. I haven’t made up my mind.

Any good book purchases lately? Please share!!!!

  1. All of the British Library Crime Classics are gorgeous in physical form. Not just the cover, but the typeface, the paper, the weight, smell, … just the feel of the books.
    I usually get rid of books that I have read and don’t want to keep, but for some reason, I have kept the BLCC copies – even of the ones I didn’t like.
    I look forward to your project. 😀

  2. I have a bunch of browser windows open for books I want to order – I just can’t bring myself to order them quite yet. The Aussie dollar is so bad right now, a paperback of the mass market variety is almost 20 bucks. Ugh. But I’m close to caving – I’m getting desperate for some new releases!

    1. I sorry about that. That’s crazy!!!!! I am trying, TRYING to limit my purchases of new releases. Fable I caved. I do like second hand book stores. I always like to see how many $3.00 books I can find and get. My husband is so giving me the side eye lately. The last package he said, “Is that another book?” Why yes, yes it is dear. He asked me what I wanted for our anniversary and I said books. He said NO you buy enough books, what else? I paused and said, “A gift card?” He said yes and then said, “Wait is it so you can buy more books?” LOL What can I say?

  3. I recognise this marriage. 😀 Although, MT did give me a wonderful b-day present this year of 50 collectible books of my choosing. Unfortunately, it’s on hold until this new reality sorts itself out. But I’m looking forward to choosing them. 🙂

      1. Nope. He thinks I should, but most of the books I want I’m going to have to source from the US/NYC, I think and with the dollar being as bad as it is, and things being as precarious as they are right now, I haven’t been able to bring myself to do it. I want to be able to enjoy the experience of searching my choices out – not to mention not have a higher than normal anxiety level about whether the post will lose the package. So I’m content to wait for things to settle out first. But I am making lists. 😀

      2. Yes – I’m worried I’m going to forget about someone. I want to create a set of Sayers’ works, and JDC headache risks or not, I want a few of his, and I want to complete my collection of Anna Katherine Green. Possibly Rinehart too. And there’s one more crime folio I want… *happy sigh*

      3. Oooh, do you have specific Sayers editions in mind? And which JDC ones are you going for? I know you’re looking for The Hollow Man…

        Also, which AKG ones?

        One of the things that peeved me in The Hollow Man was that JDC gave away spoilers to AKG and other writers’ books in “the lecture”. He automatically lost stars for doing that alone.

      4. Yikes! Really? Not cool JDC. Perversely, because The Levenworth Case is AKG’s most well known title, it’s the one I’m most relectant to get, so, also perversely, it’s at the top of my list. I already have the Violet Strange stories, and what I think is her only other set of short stories “A Difficult Problem and the Staircase at the Heart’s Delight”, which I haven’t read yet.

        As for Sayers, I want to get the closest I can get to original pub date without selling organs. Which will be a challenge, to say the least. But that’s part of the fun, right? 🙂

      5. Oh, I understand that logic re the Sayers editions. It will not surprise you that I looked into something like that myself at one point. I eventually decided against it tho.
        (I may have directed that effort into finding affordable Hogarth Press editions of Woolf’s essays, tho…)

        Thanks for the list of AKGs. I’ll use this as a starting point. I’m ashamed to say I haven’t read anything by her, yet. I really need to remedy that.

      6. Her list is much more extensive, but I didn’t want to bog the post down. The Mayor’s Wife was my first AKG, and it blew me away. Maybe because I didn’t know what to expect so my expectations were lower, but I just loved that story. And The Circular Staircase, while not perfect, was amazing because it had a heavy science fiction theme for its time. I wanted to like the Violet Strange stories more, because she’s a female Sherlock-type character. They were good but uneven.

  4. Congrats on your anniversary! Sorry you couldn’t go out 😦

    We went to the Cheesecake Factory for our anniversary this year. Thankfully they were open, but I don’t know how much longer they can survive with such small amounts of people. The place just echoed….
