Hoarders, Books Edition: Episode 86

It’s coming.

As evident from our morning walk, while our breaths billowed out in the frigid 2 degrees of the Manitoba autumn, the colours of the surrounding trees are slowly turning. Sigh. I do love Autumn, though; football, fluffy sweaters, most importantly – no bugs.

I thought that I should take advantage of the disappearing warm days and take outdoor pictures of my books again. Husband and I lugged my book haul to the lake but I forgot to bring my Nikon so these pictures were taken using my newly upgraded iPhone. Snazzy looking thing.

The Beautiful and the Damned by Jessica Verday. Huge thanks to Simon and Schuster for the review copy. I remember reading Verday’s The Hollow series and liked it at the time. What better way to get back into it than reading this companion novel?

Have a great week, everyone!Β

  • Great haul, beautiful pictures…you're making me jealous! πŸ˜€ I should try to take better pictures of my books. πŸ™

  • Oh no? It's pretty good. If I remember correctly, it's about ghostly beings. I didn't really like The Hallowed Ones as much but I'm hoping The Outside will redeem this series for me. Thanks, Melliane!

  • I've been hearing good things about 3:59 so I'm pretty excited too. I hope you'll get to read it soon. And really? No Raven Boys? That sucks.


  • I hope I get a copy of 3:59 soon! I love Gretchen's work, it looks like a hefty book and the blurb sounds really good! Still hunting copies of The Raven Boys here, so far no luck πŸ™‚

  • The Dream Thieves! I loved that book. I have a paperback copy, but the hardcover looks gorgeous. The Burning Sky was a great read for me too. And I'm actually halfway through The Outside at the moment and completely enjoying it. I have to say, I'm pretty relieved that it's Autumn now. It's my favourite season. πŸ™‚

  • Lovely haul. I tried to get into The Burning Sky and found that I just couldn't get into the book. Nice haul of books. Come visit me as well.
