Welcome to round 2 of my bi-monthly Book Haul posts. On my Mid-February Book Haul post, I listed the 5 books I purchased during the first 2 weeks of February. It seems I managed not to go overboard during the last two weeks of the month…well, for my standards.
I buy most of my books at Barnes & Noble (pictured above), for which I have a membership that offers a 10% off for all purchases. Every few weeks I get coupons for an extra 20% off which I use immediately. In the end, I do end up spending a hefty amount of money just on new books, but I never regret a purchase.
Supporting diverse authors and the publishing industry in general brings me such joy and personal fulfillment that I don’t have time to worry about money!
Here are all the books I bought in the last two weeks. Have you had your eye on any of them?
I bought The Other Wes Moore, The Beautiful Struggle, and God Help the Child during a Buy 2 Get 1 Free Black History Month Sale (what a mouthful!). I bought American Ace in the same trip because I’m a fan of Marilyn Nelson. The review will be up tomorrow and my review for God Help the Child is scheduled for next Tuesday. Stay tuned!
I highlighted, Please Look After Mom in a my previous Read Your World post, 4 Must-Read Korean Writers. I finally got a physical copy of Kyung-Sook Shin’s novel (had it as an eBook previously). I will be reviewing this book later this year!
Check out my review of The Drowning Eyes below.
I recently finished Binti and I’m very impressed. The quality of this novella is not surprising, given that it was nominated for a Nebula Award. A review will be up in the next few weeks.
I’ve had my eye on Nadia Hashimi for a while. Two days ago, one of her novels was on sale as a Kindle Daily Deal and I simply could not pass it up
