Hoarders, Books Edition: Episode 99


This is two-weeks worth of books. I am on a roll and I’m trying not to jinx it by avoiding distractions. Right now, I’m working on my 24th book of the year. I’ve got some review rough drafts that I’ve yet to polish. Hopefully, I can get them done soon.

Anyway, looking forward to visiting your blogs, y’all. πŸ™‚ Here are the books I’ve hoarded in the last couple of weeks:

I got a recommendation to read Yoko Ogawa’s books so I bought three. I read Hotel Iris in pretty much one sitting. It’s a disturbing story about a seventeen-year-old girl and her fascination/obsession with this 67-year-old man. The relationship is sick, to say the least. I’ll be posting my review sometime this week, I hope.

Hotel Iris | Revenge | The Housekeeper and the Professor

Parasite by Mira Grant | Under the Wide and Starry Sky by Nancy Horan
South of No North by Charles Bukowski

Foreplay by Sophie Jordan | Before Jamaica Lane by Samantha Young
Rome by Jay Crownover

Erased by Jennifer Rush | Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi | Uninvited by Sophie Jordan
Have a Nice Day by Julie Halpern | Control by Lydia Kang
The Gospel of Winter by Brendan Kiely | Afterparty by Ann Redisch Stampler
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

That’s it for the last couple of weeks. Thanks for commenting!Β 
  • Great haul! I really liked Uninvited and Cruel Beauty! Enjoy your books.

  • Uninvited, Cruel Beauty, and Into The Still Blue are all amazing reads! Control and Afterparty both sound great, too. I love the cover for Control. I hope you enjoy all of your books πŸ™‚

  • So many gorgeous looking looking books Joy, Cruel Beauty was definitely different to what I was expecting it to be. And I need to read something by Samantha Young asap, everyone seems to love her books! Happy reading Joy and good luck with your reading goal, you are doing an amazing job so far!

  • I've heard good reviews on The Cruel Beauty, J.! Love your book haul of awesomeness as usual πŸ™‚

  • I love the look of all the hardcovers. I think I only have five in my entire personal library! Hotel Iris sounds very different from what I normally read – and interesting in a slightly disturbing kind of way. Hope you enjoy reading your way though your book haul!

  • 24 books, woman!!?? How do you do it! I just finished Cruel Beauty. I can't wait to see what you think of it.

  • I am now very much anticipating your review of Hotel Iris! That sounds like the kind of twisted book I like. πŸ™‚ I'm really interested in Under the Wide and Starry Sky, so I hope you love it and review it. It's gorgeous. And I really loved Into the Still Blue, Cruel Beauty, and Uninvited, so I really hope you love them too! πŸ™‚ Happy reading Joy!

  • Lovely books you got here Joy! I'm looking forward on what you think of Cruel Beauty! Hearing good things about it! Happy Reading~

  • Excellent haul as usual! Uninvited & Erased I NEED so bad lol I am intrigued by Hotel Iris & look forward to your review so that I can get a more in depth view of it (That and I miss reading your reviews! STUPID school).

  • You sold me with just the words “the relationship is sick,” hah. I'm fascinated by weird situations like that so I'm going to have to look for reviews–I hadn't heard of that author at all.

    I really liked PARASITE and FOREPLAY, so I hope you like them, too.
