Hoarders, Books Edition: Episode 182


The Summer Before the War by Helen Simonson | Voodoo Killings by Kristi Charish | Before the Fall by Noah Hawley | Sing by Vivi Greene | This is My Brain on Boys by Sarah Strohmeyer | Assassin’s Heart by Sarah Ahiers | Every Exquisite Thing by Matthew Quick | Appealed by Emma Chase


On Saturday, I had bloggers from my city come over to take some books off my hand. All in all, they took home ____ books. They didn’t manage to take them all home because, well, it’s virtually impossible. ¬†They promised to come back and grab some more, though. If not, I might just end up sending the rest to the library. Basically, I’m getting rid of the books that I’ve read that didn’t leave a lasting impression; books that I’ve got multiple copies of, and books that I have no intention of ever reading. I promise that I’m being smarter with the books I buy nowadays. But at this point, I don’t know how I’m going to manage to read them all. I really need to re-think owning hard copies or paperbacks and stick to audio or Kindle copies. Because it doesn’t make sense for me to get rid of physical copies only to buy some more.

Which brings me to this haul.

I hate myself.


Kiss, Kill, Vanish by Jessica Martinez | Sometimes it Lasts by Abbi Glines

I couldn’t resist bargain books. I like the premise of Kiss Kill Vanish so I had to pick it up. And even though I’ve parted ways with Abbi Glines years ago, I couldn’t resist this one.


Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler | Assholes: A Theory of Donald Trump by Aaron James

I would like to thank Penguin Random House Canada for these review copies. Two books that I’m dying to read! I’m sure I’ve talked about Hogarth Shakespeare before. Well, this month, they have Anne Tyler’s interpretation of The Taming of the Shrew – perhaps my favourite out of all Bill’s works. And of course, I don’t need to tell you ¬† how much I’m dying to talk about Donald Drumpf on the blog, so I was so happy when I saw this book from PRHC’s email.

So as I was saying, I think I need to rethink my stance on ebooks. Or maybe have my earphones surgically implanted on my ear so I could listen to audiobooks all. The. Damn. Time.
