This past month was uhm fairly bad on the book buying front compared to some of the other months this year. To be fair I got my tax return in June and as shit as 2020 has been so far, I figure I’d pay some authors lol. What? It sounds more positive than hoarding books.
★ House of Dragons (House of Dragons 1) by Jessica Cluess
I was able to buy this over from a friend. Dragons okay. Okay.
★ Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo
Out of my comfort zone but I’ve heard too many great things about Acevedo that I had to give this a go.
★ The Rise of Magicks (Chronicles of the One 3) by Nora Roberts
This was translated to Dutch and I got it from my husband. Now I have the trilogy complete so I can read this one in one go.
★ Stormsong (The Kingston Cycle 2) by C.L. Polk
Finally I have this one ❤
★ An Unkindness of Ghosts by Rivers Solomon
I’ve had my eye on this for a while so I finally bought it.
★ A Song of Wraiths and Ruin (A Song of Wraiths and Ruin 1) by Roseanne A. Brown
I was one of the lucky winners from Tammy’s Wyrd and Wonder giveaway and I choose this beauty.
★ Changeless (Parasol Protectorate 2) by Gail Carriger = READ
I struggled for the longest time to find this book and the ebook was so expensive. But then it suddenly popped back up so I ordered it straight away.
★ Shaking Hands with Death by Terry Pratchett = READ
This is the BBC Richard Dimblebly Lecture 2010 that he did then. I’ve been meaning to get this one. Its only about 50 pages but it does pack a punch.
I also ordered this (e)book sleeve and pinhoop from Books Art Liberty. My protection thingy that came with my sony e reader was dying a slow death. So I figured this cutesy dragon one could replace it and if I ever need a new ereader (as my sony will not live forever) it will also fit. I think I am also going to order some more of the pin hoops to display differently.
I ended up making two orders of each 2 books by black writers.
★ The City We Became(Great Cities 1) by N.K. Jemisin
I really loved Jemisin’s Broken Earth trilogy and I would really just like to read all her books out so far.
★ The Kingdom of Gods (Inheritance 3) by N.K. Jemisin
I have the first two books that I am planning on reading this Summer so I figured I needed the last book too.
★ A Phoenix First Must Burn. Edited by Patrice Caldwell
The cover is so pretty and I think short stories can be a great way to find new authors to try out.
★ October Daye 4 to 10 by Seanan McGuire
4 to 7 = READ
They were fairly cheap okay. Shh.
★ Incendiary (Hollow Crown 1) by Zoraida Cordova
I got an e arc of this but it wouldn’t work properly on my e reader so I ended up resorting to buying the published ebook.
★ A Blade so Black (Nightmare-Verse 1) by L.L. McKinney
I ended up buying this after liking to many of the authors tweets on twitter.
