Hoarders, Books Edition: Episode 223

Welcome to another edition of Joy Just Can’t Help Herself. *facepalm* This is my latest purchases from Book Outlet. They sure don’t make it easy for weak humans like me, do they? Sigh. Do you ever get that complete and utter happiness when you see a book you’ve been searching for a fraction of a price? Well, that was how I felt when I saw The Line of Beauty by Alan Hollinghurst. But of course, you can’t just buy one book from Book Outlet, otherwise, you’ll have to pay for shipping and that would be a travesty.

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo | The Bookshop of the Broken Hearted by Robert Hillman | Autumn by Ali Smith | The Line of Beauty by Alan Hollinghurst | Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover | Browse: The World of Bookshops | Winter by Ali Smith

I’m looking forward to reading all these, except for Ugly Love because I’ve read that one already. I think I only wanted it because I’m collecting her books. I’m actually pretty glad I decided to do this haul today. It reminded me of how much I want to read these books when I ordered them from Book Outlet.

It was another great reading week, y’all. I read a total of 8 books — which, sounds utterly impossible but I had a day off on Monday so I was able to do some reading. Aside from a couple of 3 -star reads, it’s been a streak of good reads. My favourite is John F. Kennedy’s biography, for sure. Percy Jackson was awesome as well. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series! Here are all the books:

  • Call It What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer 4/5 Stars.
  • Bad Apple by Elle Kennedy 4/5 Stars
  • Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott, et. all 4/5 Stars
  • The Life of John F. Kennedy Jr. by Steven M. Gillon 5/5 Stars
  • The Lovecraft Compendium by H.P. Lovecraft 3/5 Stars
  • Color Me In by Natasha Diaz 3/5 StarsThe Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan 5/5 Stars
  • The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai 3/5 Stars

Last week, I picked up a physical book from the library for the first time in years. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I was! Lol. I borrowed Call It What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer — which I devoured practically in one sitting. Then on Saturday night, I went and put a bunch of books on hold. I love that I will be able to peruse the books first before I decide to pick up a copy. That is, if the library has them.

So that’s my week. Sorry I’ve been sporadic in commenting. My work week has been hectic and I usually do my commenting when I have some time at work. Let’s hope next week will be a different story.
