Once again, I’ve proved that I might be slightly addicted to the rush of buying books. In my defense, two of these were souvenirs from a road trip this month and one of them I actually got back in December and just never hauled. So there. That makes it better, right? RIGHT?
Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson – This is the December book. I bought it when I was in Malaysia – my friend there and I went book shopping together and she bought the first book in one of my favorite series and I bought the first book in one of hers… she has since binged the entire series that she bought, reading farther than I have, and I have yet to even start this one. You can see it’s still in plastic wrap, hawhaw. (All the books there were – it was interesting). I’ve heard this book is very dense but very good. I hope to read it soon. 😀
The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K Le Guin – This author popped onto my radar after she released to giant anthologies of short stories recently. I found out that she’s one of the classic sci-fi writers and I kinda scolded myself for never having heard of her before. So when I was away in Connecticut a couple weeks ago, we were in a book shop and I spotted this on the shelves. I figured it would be a good place to start. Apparently this is the fourth book in a set universe of hers, but the books don’t need to be read in publication order. So go me, I almost messed up. Very excited for this one!
Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch – I’ve actually already read this one. Did so as a library book though, so when I saw a cheapo copy I nabbed it. Will eventually get the rest. Still need to read the third one.
The Heart of Betrayal and The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E Pearson – I made a bookoutlet purchase last month and these two books inspired it. I’m currently buddy-reading the second book and will likely move into the third afterward, finishing the series. I’m rather enjoying it so far.
Twelves Kings of Sharakhai by Bradley P Beaulieu – This one was a big of an impulse-buy. It’s been floating on my radar for a month or two now and when it showed up on bookoutlet in paperback I added it to my cart. Gotta make the shipping worth it, yo. Very much looking forward to this one too, I’ve heard good things about it. :”D
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard – I AM JUMPING ON THIS BANDWAGON, DAMMIT. THAT IS ALL I HAVE TO SAY.
The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell – This is the other souvenir book I bought while in connecticut. It was on clearance! Six bucks for this hard-back beauty. ….I now own three Mitchell books and have yet to read any of them. :”D
The Broken Eye by Brent Weeks – my current obsession is this series. I’m about half way through the second book and will likely pick this one up soon after. I’ve been looking for the first book in hard cover now and can’t seem to find it. Only paperback. If you know where I can get a hard cover, do let me know. Thanks. :”D
And that’s it! I hope… I hope next month won’t be as bad, hawhaw. But I know I’m already planning a HPB trip for the 16th, namely to take my Dad, who has never been there. Wish me luck and self-discipline. Happy reading!
