Hi! It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, so I figured it was time. For those unfamiliar, in this type of post, I look back in my past book hauls and talk about where the books are now, whether I actually read them, etc.
This is the fifth edition of this, so we’re going to look at my fifth book haul, originally posted on January 28th, 2016. These were the books I got:
The first thing I notice about this photo is how dark it is. Man.
Feast of Crows by George R. R. Martin – Owned, read
I’ve read all of these books at this point but honestly the likelihood of me picking up the sixth one (if it ever comes out) is pretty slim because I’d have to reread everything so I remember what’s going on, and I didn’t love them enough to want to actually do that.
Inuyasha vols 19 and 20 by Rumiko Takahashi – Owned, read (technically)
So technically I’ve read vols 19 and 20 of Inuyasha, but I haven’t read my specific copies yet. So maybe these are ‘unread’? Who knows. I do plan on re-reading the entire series at some point, but that also involves collecting the whole thing and there are 50-something volumes. Someday, someday.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell – Unhauled, read
This one I ended up reading and getting rid of. I didn’t dislike it. It was three stars. I thought it was good for what it was. But between the main character annoying me and the fact that I know I’ll never reread it, I got rid of it.
A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki – Owned, read
I actually just mentioned this in my post from yesterday: Three star books that weirdly stuck with me. Funny it comes up again. But yeah, read this, didn’t love it, but something pulls me towards it.
Locke & Key vol 1 by Joe Hill – Owned, read
I gotta say though, ‘owned’ is a rather tumultuous term for this one. I’ve been meaning to get rid of it. I actually have the second volume of this too and have read it, but I’m not crazy about the art style. I did watch the Netflix show and liked it but after that I’m not sure I’m up to collecting the series and re-going through the story. So.. this will likely disappear when the plague is over.
And that’s it for today! My first book hauls were so tiny in retrospect… man, I have a problem. Part of me wants to get back to those nice, concise hauls. Another part of me is super enjoying buying 30 volumes of manga per month. So. Hehe.
