Hey Guys! Happy Saturday. How was your week? Mine was quite busy and tiring. It feels like it’s been ages since I posted anything here. This post contains basically the haul from past 2 weeks. I mainly collected some of the books that I intend to read over this fall, while some I got for just the beautiful edition 😀 Let’s start our ride 😛
So, as I mentioned earlier, past two weeks were great in terms of purchasing new books (but were miserable for my pocket 🙁 ). Most of these books I intend to read in the coming months (doesn’t this every book lover
SAY WISH? ).
I have decided today to not bore you with lengthy descriptions of the books 😀 I have linked the respective images to their Amazon/Goodreads links, in case you want to buy or check the descriptions.
I was really lucky that I got pretty good deals on Amazon for these books and you know, a bookworm can’t resist the temptation. THE SMELL of NEW BOOKS CALLS YOU! 😀
I have already finished Looking For Alaska by John Green (and I am glad that I finished something immediately as I purchased it :P) and I loved. I’ll post the review soon. I read this in preparation for new John Green’s release, for which I am SO FREAKING excited. #TurtlesAlltheWayCountDown is currently trending on Twitter for reading all his books before his new release. Hoping to start An Abundance of Katherines next (probably I can’t just read all of his books).
I bought this edition of Heartless by Marissa Meyer obviously because of its cover 😀 (though I already had the other edition and yes, I haven’t read it yet). Exist West by Mohsin Hamid don’t need any introduction these days. It is one of the finalists for Man Booker Prize. I wanted to read at least one book from this year finalists, so I chose this.
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon and The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas are the books that I wanted to purchase from so long but was stuck because of the high price (of these particular editions 😛 ) and I finally got them now.
Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie is another book that got shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize but was not able to make it to the finals. I have heard great reviews about this one, so I wanted to read it.
This year, I wanted to read some books by Indian writers who don’t write in English. The Poison of Love by K.R. Meera is one of such book. I had great things about it from fellow bookstagrammers and couldn’t resist myself from purchasing it. Another Indian writer’s book is Erotic Stories For Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal (though she lives in London). Well, isn’t its name interesting:? 😛 But I really liked its cover. I am currently reading it and loving it so far.
Finally, yes finally, I purchased myself an edition of Pride and Prejudice ( and that’s a pretty edition) and now I can read her, for the first time ( Yes I haven’t read any of her books yet please don’t hate me :P). I was looking for this Penguin Clothbound edition for so long. This edition is just so pretty.
I got these three review copies this week. I am most excited about Hell! No Saints in Paradise by A.K. Asif. It has a really good synopsis. Also, I liked the theme of A Window To Her Dreams by Harshali Singh and I hope I can read it soon. One Last Time was actually sent to me accidentally, in place of another book, by the publishers (Yes it happens 😛 ) but it’s really short so I think I can give it a try.
So that’s it from me guys for last two week’s haul. I hope you liked it. Is there any book in this list that you purchased this week too? Is any of these books in your TBR? What have you added to your TBR?
Leave me a link to your Stack, and I’ll check it out 🙂 I’ll be back soon with another Stacking the Shelves post.
