The July 2018 Book Haul, Part II

July 2018 Book Haul II

I’m really going on a physical book-buying ban now. For real.

To prove my determination, let me tell you, I had to return City of Illusions to the library a few days ago, and I went into the book sale room while I was there (of course I did) but I didn’t buy anything. There was one book I sort of wanted, but at $3/bag, I skipped it–there wasn’t anything else even worth throwing in to make paying for a full bag worth it!

So here’s the second part of my July shopping spree, which trickled in over the last few days of the month from places as far-flung from me as Reno, NV and Portland, OR.

  • Hate to Want You, by Alisha Rai
  • Casino Royale, Live and Let Die, and Moonraker, by Ian Fleming
  • For the Record, by Charlotte Huang
  • Dirty, by Kylie Scott
  • MaddAddam, by Margaret Atwood
  • Children of Earth and Sky, by Guy Gavriel Kay

The James Bond books happened because I’ve acquired the second half of the series (#8-14) across several library sales, and though I don’t know what the huge spoiler is I’m being protected from, I’ve been warned by a friend that these MUST be read in order. Since it’s been about two years since I’ve nabbed any titles in person, I thought it was time to flesh out the early works from Thriftbooks.

The rest of them were random titles I wanted (the romances), the last in a series I’ve started (the Atwood), and the latest from a favorite author (Kay).

No more books for now! I’ve only read ten more so far this year than I’ve gotten! That’s not reading down the TBR pile!
