I bought and got given a load of books over the last month or so so I wanted to share them with you! I spoke about Children’s and YA books in Part One and now it’s time for adult books:
Six Against The Yard by members of The Detection Club
I read Floating Admiral, the Detection Club’s first co-authored title back in August (I even included it in my Wrap Up) and got this one as a Spookathon back-up, what with it having purple on the cover. So excited to get to this one, even if it doesn’t quite make Spookathon.
Bird Cottage by Eva Meijer
Definitely one I’m going into blind, just really liked the cover and got my hands on an imperfect copy – let me know if you enjoyed this one!
Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
I really enjoyed Ng’s Little Fires Everywhere when I read it last year and thought I’d try her earlier novel. I was a bit disappointed I couldn’t get a copy with the original cover but I guess this one is supposed to match Little Fires Everywhere? I think the original cover is way cooler, but still looking forward to reading the story.
Normal People by Sally Rooney
I’ve already read this but absolutely loved it and wanted to own a copy. I also wrote about it in my August Wrap Up.
Washington Black by Esi Edugyan
I’ve been eyeing this one up for a while and then got this exclusive paperback edition in my first Books That Matter box – more about that here.
The Truths and Triumphs of Grace Atherton by Anstey Harris
Managed to get a signed proof of this when the author popped into the shop the other day and I’m so looking forward to reading it! Likened to Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, it’s going to be a biggie, I think.
Running Upon the Wires by Kate Tempest
Spotted signed copies in the shop and I reeeeeeeally want to read more poetry, I think it’s just a bit difficult knowing who you might like if you’re going into it blind. I’ve heard great things about Kate Tempest and enjoyed what I read while flicking through it so I picked this one up. If anyone has suggestions for poets/poetry that I should pick up, let me know!
And there you have it.
My Autumn haul 2018.
My book ban is going great.
Thanks for reading,
