Hello, happy Sunday! Today I want to do another fate of my book haul books post. I started this series a couple months ago, where I go over my book hauls since the beginning of my blog and tell you what has happened to those books.
Today’s book haul I originally posted on November 26th, 2015. These were the books that I had hauled:
The Final Empire, The Well of Ascension and The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson – Owned, unread
I’ve still only read the one Sanderson novel, Elantris. I liked it, and I own a good bit of his books now, including these three, I just haven’t gotten to them yet. Four years, man.
The Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson – Owned, unread
Yet another ‘I’ve read one book by this author but have a lot of other books by them, all unread’. I’ll get to it, I’ll get to it.
Station Eleven by Emily St John Mandel – Owned, unread
This one, I’m hoping I really like. I’ve heard literally zero bad things about it.
The Glass Sentence by SE Grove – Owned, unread
I really like the premise of this one – each country is in a different time period. Other than that, I know nothing about it. I have the second one too… I’ll get to them. I will, dammit.
The Time Traveler’s Almanac by a buttload of authors – Owned, unread
So, problem. I bought this before I realized that I don’t like short story collections. This is the only one I still own that I haven’t read yet, and I’m afraid, honestly. I don’t want to dislike it, but I’ve disliked literally every other short story collection I’ve read. I just think the format is not for me, regardless of the content. I’ll probably pick this up as a challenge for a readathon. I’m nervous, ahaha.
My True Love Gave to Me by a buttload of other authors – Unhauled, read
This one I did read! And then I got rid of it because iiiiit’s a short story collection and I didn’t care for it. heeh.
Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor – Unhauled, unread
This one I ended up getting rid of due to disinterest before I read it. I read the first one in the series ages ago and thought it was just ok. And by the time I got around to looking at this one, I had forgotten the contents of the first one and didn’t want to reread it. So.
Night Film by Marisha Pessl – Owned, unread
Honestly, this one just intimidates me. I’ll get there eventually.
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens – Owned, read
Literally the only ‘owned, read’ one this haul, I’ve read this book so many times! Almost every year, and I think I’m due for a reread.
And that’s it! As you can see, the majority of these are ‘yes, still have it, no, still haven’t read it. hm hm hm
