Book haul #2

Hello friends,

Currently listening to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban on audio (as I’m working my way through the series again).

Just finished Sawkill Girls (see review), so I’m anxious to start something new, probably something light and fluffy as a palate cleanser.

In the past, I’ve always had several books in process at the same time, but I find that I forget a lot that way … so I’m working on reading one straight through before I start another.

Here’s another little haul for you, of books I’ve bought recently (including at the library sale) …

haul 2

More Than Words by Jill Santopolo – this is a new-release hardback I purchased because I enjoyed her previous book, The Light We Lost.

September by Rosamunde Pilcher – I don’t really know anything about this book, but I enjoyed her novel The Shell Seekers, so I thought I’d give it a go.  Got this one at the library sale.

The October Horse by Colleen McCullough – she’s the author of The Thorn Birds.  This book is a story about Caesar and Cleopatra.  Sounds interesting.  I like historical fiction.

Life After Life by Kate Atkinson – I’ve been seeing this book a lot on blogs and videos, and most readers seem to rave about it.  I believe it’s about a woman who is living her life over and over again.

A Winter’s Promise by Christelle Dabos.  This is the first in a series, and the second book just came out in hardcover.  I believe it’s a futuristic / dystopian world where people live on these “spires,” which are leftover parts of their former planet.

Dry by Neal Shusterman and Jarrod Shusterman (father and son team, I believe).  A book about a severe drought, and how people behave (and turn on each other) when they are deprived of basic life needs.

I don’t do “to be read” (TBR) lists, because every book I haul goes into the queue!  And sometimes I want to pick up something completely different  – so no promises that I’ll get to any of these super soon.

That’s my second mini-haul – which of these have you read?  I’m happy to hear your recommendations!

Blessings,

Annette
