As well as taking part in StS’s over at the Happy Homo Book Club, I thought it would be good to bring it over here as I always seem to have a lot of books added to my TBR list every week and it looks too crowded to add them in with everyone else’s! Especially as over the past 2 weeks I have added something like 15 books to my list, so now you can find my extended list here instead!
I usually don’t get to purchase too many books due to money, but this week I stumbled across both the Kindle 99p summer sale and the new Prime reading service which allows Prime readers to read certain books for free!
These are the books I purchased in the sale:
And the ones I have from Prime Reader:
As some of you know, I’ve been trying to correct an early mistake I made on Netgalley of requesting too many non-fiction books with little fiction. As I tend to read non-fiction surprisingly slowly for someone whose almost completed a degree, I’m trying to request some more fiction on Netgalley with varying success as I seem to be getting rejected for a lot of books!
So far, I’ve been approved for:
The Sum of Us Anthology
And I’ve also requested:
And lastly, most of my books are added to my very, very long Goodreads TBR shelves!!
The Inexplicable Logic of my Life by Benjamin Alire Sáenz // Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer // An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir // Far From You by Tess Sharpe // 27 Hours by Tristina Wright // Dragon Teeth by Michael Crichton // A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee // If We Were Villains by M. L. Rio
So, as you can see, I am constantly fighting against my insatiable impulse to acquire books and I am hoping that this summer will be a productive one of actually reading some of these (in amongst all of the video games, films, conventions, dissertation….etc)! I do have 4 years of reading to catch up on though so that’s my excuse 😉
What did you all add to your reading lists this week? Have you read any of the books on my life, and what did you think of them??
