Behold the Pretty Books! / September Book Haul

Behold the Pretty Books! / September Book Haul
Here are the books I acquired in September!

September was a month for wonderful new books and it’s impossible to keep up! I attended Patrick Ness’ event for The Rest of Us Just Live Here at Waterstones Piccadilly and bought a copy – you can read my review here. I love the blue edges, debossed case and beautiful endpapers!

I visited Blackwell’s in Holborn and was tempted by their 3 for 2 offer. I bought Carrie, The Winter War and Rooms. I very rarely purchase books I haven’t come across before but The Winter War caught my eye. I read the first page and as a sociology graduate, was intrigued by the main character, a fictional sociologist.

The lovely Robin at Egmont kindly sent me The One Hundred and One Dalmatians, written by Dodie Smith and illustrated by Alex T. Smith. I’ll be reading it for the 2015 Classics Challenge! As I participated in the blog tour, Scholastic sent me a copy of Return to the Secret Garden, a sequel to The Secret Garden – check out my stop.

I was sent Sarah J. Maas’ Queen of Shadows, which I’ll start after reading The Assassin’s Blade. I also acquired One (one of my favourite books of the year), The Wolf Wilder and Unbecoming. I was lucky to get The Wolf Wilder signed at an event with Katherine Rundell, Jenny Downham and Annabel Pitcher – it was fantastic and I can’t wait to get stuck into all three books.

I paid a visit to NetGalley and downloaded Anything That Isn’t This and Hello, Goodbye and Everything in BetweenEven though I haven’t yet read Chris Priestley’s novels, I’ve been his events and really enjoy his storytelling. And lastly, I picked up a bunch of 2016 titles for review on Edelweiss, including The Word for Yes, This Is Where the World Ends and A Study in Charlotte. I’ll certainly be kept busy next year!

Have you read any of these? Let me know what you thought of them in the comments.

  1. Your pictures are always amazing, Stacey, but I LOVE these! The Winter War has a really beautiful cover. Sometimes it’s good to pick up books you haven’t heard of before. I need to do it more!

  2. Carrie is so good!!! Such a classic Stephen King book; nice pick :) :)

  3. As always Stacy, I adore these posts and adore the photos that you take!! They’re always so pretty. Queen of Shadows is spectacular, I can’t wait for you to read it. It blew me away!

  4. There are some very pretty books there!

  5. Is the 101 Dalmations cover with the spots a different edition? It’s so pretty!

  6. It looks like you picked up some gems in September – and all with such beautiful covers!! I’m loving the look of The Hundred and One Dalmatians… And I’ve never read the book so would be interested to hear your thoughts on that in the future.

    A Stephen King book is quite befitting of the current month.

  7. *strokes the pretty books* I love your pictures! That hardback of One is just gorgeous. The Wolf Wilder is SO GOOD and Unbecoming is really emotional. And Im so jealous of your copy of 101 dalmations!
