Another book haul you ask? Yes, another book haul. I’m still keeping to my book buying ban though – these books are all ARC’s and I didn’t *buy* them, so it doesn’t count right? 😏 Without jokes, thank you so much to the authors of these books for sending them my way! I’m really looking forward to reading them! Now, let’s shove my bookhoarding problem to the side and get on with my book haul.
Last week was the National Book Week here in the Netherlands: a week dedicated to books and writers! It also means that you get the book week gift for free, when you buy a Dutch (original or translated) book. And of course I couldn’t let that pass, so I broke my book buying ban once again and bought a book. Besides that I also got a couple of review e-copies!
Although I’m still on a kind of book buying ban, I have added a couple of books to my shelves in the past month. Down below I’ll share the blurbs of the books I bought myself and the books that were gifted to me!
This year’s Black Friday was a good one. Pieter and I managed to snatch a bigger and, more important, better television and I bought a couple of books for myself. In this haul I will give you the blurbs of these books, plus the blurbs of one I got to review!
Last week I suddenly ended up in a beautiful bookstore in town and I happened to buy a book I’ve been eyeing for the longest time. Besides that one, I also received some review ecopies!
In the month of October I’ve added a total of five physical books to my shelves. In my previous October book haul you can find two (Dutch) books I was sent by De Crime Compagnie to read and review. This book haul consists of one book I bought myself and two other books I received to review on my blog and Goodreads!
I always forget to show you what bookish things I have purchased and when I sit down to write a blogpost about it, I feel like I forgot half of what I got. So, I hope this post is a full update on all the books and bookish merch I recently added to my collection!
While I was in Maastricht last Thursday I just had to visit boekhandel Dominicanen and buy a book. I ended up, as is usual, in the thriller/suspense section where I found a lot of (Dutch translations of) King’s books. While browsing I saw a sealed hardcover of Finders Keepers, the second book in the Bill Hodges trilogy. For only 10 euros!! I’m currently reading Mr. Mercedes, the first book, and I’m absolutely loving it. So it was only logical to buy this one!
After a long time of not buying books (except for The Exorcist in March) I thought it’d be time to treat myself to some new books. Don’t worry, I’m still participating in the #theunreadshelfproject2018 and I think I’m doing pretty great (including these new books I have “only” 112 unread books on my shelves!)
