Once again, I’ve gone out and spent money I don’t really have and bought myself a lot of books. I would feel guilty but what’s the point? I’ll probably buy some more next week. 😂
I have 15 books that I’ve bought in the past two days, and I’m so exited to read all of them!
So, here are the books I bought in July:
1-3. The Darkest Minds (trilogy) by Alexandra Bracken
I’m currently reading The Darkest Minds and I’m really loving it. I already know it’s going to be one of my favourites of the year and I’m only 100 pages in – I love it when that happens.
4. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
TFIOS is one of my favourite books of all time. I bought this copy for £1 at a place called “The Bookbarn” that’s near where I live and it sells used books for very cheap. I already own a copy of this, however, I want to reread it so I’m going to use my used copy to do this so I don’t bend the spine of the other copy.
5. Save The Date by Morgan Matson
I did it. I bought another Morgan Matson book! I haven’t read any of her novels yet but I really want to. I rarely ever read contemporary but I’d like to start getting back into the genre and I think Morgan Matson’s books are a good place to start.
6. Eragon by Christopher Paolini
I have wanted to read Eragon for a couple of years so when I saw this copy going (second hand) for £1 I couldn’t say no. I don’t think I have ever read a book about dragons so I’m very excited to start this.
7. Maus by Art Spiegelman
I really enjoy reading about WW2 history. As an example, The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah is one of my favourite books of all time and I love it. When I saw this graphic novel I just knew I had to get it and I’m hoping to read it soon.
8. Grace And Fury by Tracy Bangheart
I have seen this book floating around Booktube for a some time now and in all honesty; the cover made me want to buy it. It’s gorgeous and so photogenic. It sounds like so much fun.
9. The Black Prism by Brent Weeks
I never bought this book, I stole it from my boyfriend Ollie. It’s very well loved by him so he wanted me to give it a shot, too.
10. Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor
I already own a copy of this, but… BUT it is a massive hardcover edition. If you’re not aware, big books intimidate me greatly. I chose to buy the paperback for me to read as it’s smaller. I’m keeping both copies though.
11. Little & Lion by Brandy Colbert
I bought this book solely on the reason that I have the condition that one of these characters have. I really want to see how it is written and how good the portrayal is.
12. Never World Wake by Marisha Pessl
I have always wanted to read Night Film by this author but just never got around to reading it. Now that I physically own one of her books though I can start reading it to see what the hype is about.
13. The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli
I have wanted to read this book since it was released but I had to wait for the physical copy to be released in England. But now I have it! Look at this cover. It is so gorgeous.
14. Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik
I specifically asked my local Waterstones to order me in a copy of this as they didn’t have it. It came a week later and when I went in to town to get it I was so excited – like it was Christmas. I really want to read a retelling so this is perfect for that.
15. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch
I have no idea what this book is about but the cover is beautiful and it is a FLOPPY PAPERBACK which is my favourite sort. I snatched it right off of the shelves.
There you go – those are the books I bought in July. Have you read any of these books? What were your thoughts?
Thanks for reading
