June 2019 book haul #2

Processed with MOLDIV

During the week that I read the least this year, I received a lot of books 😬 I really have to up my reading game if I ever want to get through my TBR. Or … you know, buy less books.

A couple of times a year I visit the bookmarked in De Grote Kerk in Zwolle, the city where I live. It’s a bookmarket located in a church, so it’s the perfect setting. Plus, they have rows and rows of books to browse through and they are only a couple of euro’s each!

Here I bought the following books:

The Regulators by Richard Bachman (Stephen King)

There’s a place in Wentworth, Ohio, where summer is in full swing. It’s called Poplar Street. Up until now it’s been a nice place to live. The idling red van around the corner is about to change all that. Let the battle against evil begin. Here come…The Regulators

Red Dragon by Thomas Harris

Will Graham was a brilliant profiler of criminals for the FBI – until he suffered terrible injuries in the process of capturing Dr Hannibal ‘the Cannibal’ Lecter.

Years later, a serial killer nicknamed ‘the Tooth Fairy’ is massacring entire families each full moon. With the FBI desperate for progress, Will reluctantly agrees to consult. But he soon realises that he alone can’t crack the case; he needs the help of the only mind even better than his own at understanding the mentalities of psychopaths.

The mind of Hannibal Lecter.

But Hannibal is playing his own twisted game from the asylum for the criminally insane. Will isn’t alone in getting advice from the cannibal. So is the Tooth Fairy – the man haunted by visions of the murderous Red Dragon…

And these are the other books I got and bought …

W.I.T.C.H., part I. The Twelve Portals, vol. 1 by Elisabetta Gnone

Twelve portals have opened between Earth and the dark world of Metamoor, weakening the mystic veil that separates the two and protects humanity from an evil that threatens to consume it. Five girls have been chosen as Guardians to stand against this menace. Gifted with powers over the elements, Will, Irma, Taranee, Cornelia, and Hay Lin step into their new roles and together become the force for good known as W.I.T.C.H.!

W.I.T.C.H., part I. The Twelve Portals, vol. 2 by Elisabetta Gnone

The new Guardians pursue their mission to close the twelve portals to Metamoor that threaten their world. When the prediction that they will be betrayed by someone close to them comes to pass, though, can the W.I.T.C.H. girls pull together, or will they come apart at the seams…?

Clash by O.R. van Holten

A young black man tries to escape his life in the north and decides to live with his estranged father in Mississippi. It’s not long before he is prompted with serious questions about his new situation and the stakes that are at play. The transition to Jackson proves to be more challenging than he had initially thought and he finds out there is no escaping himself.

This book was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review! *

De stilte van de witte stad van Eva García Sáenz

Tasio Ortiz de Zárate is een briljante archeoloog die twintig jaar geleden werd veroordeeld voor een reeks bizarre moorden in het rustige stadje Vitoria. Hij staat op het punt voor het eerste de gevangenis te verlaten, als de misdaden weer beginnen: in de kathedraal van Vitoria wordt een jong stelletje gevonden, naakt en om het leven gekomen door bijensteken in hun keel. Niet veel later wordt er in de Casa del Cordón, een bekend middeleeuws gebouw in de stad, een ander koppel vermoord.

De jonge inspecteur en profiler Unai López de Ayala – beter bekend als Kraken – wil niets liever dan meer moorden voorkomen, maar een recente tragedie in zijn eigen leven maakt het hem moeilijk om deze zaak te behandelen als alle andere. Zijn onorthodoxe werkmethode wekt bovendien ergernis bij zijn baas. De tijd begint te dringen en de dreiging wordt alsmaar sterker: wie volgt?

I’m especially looking forward to reading Clash and the W.I.T.C.H. graphic novels – they are the exact comics that were published in the magazines in the past! They were such a big part of my youth 😍

  1. I’ve had the Hannibal books on my shelf for so long and yet haven’t felt the urge to read them, which is making me think I should just give them away, haha. I watched the show for a bit even though I had to do my best to hide my eyes at all the gory bits…
