February Book Haul

01 Mar

And it’s March! How’s everyone doing?

I hope everyone is pleased with how 2016 is going so far! We got an extra day out of last month, so I hope you all used it well. As for me, I worked, played a touch of a new video game, then binge-watched the rest of Fuller House on Netflix with Rachel. It was very productive, haha!

I did, however, have great luck (or lousy self-control, however you want to look at it) at finding plenty of new books to buy! Along with Raphie the turtle, here is the pile of books I had gotten throughout February:


The Queen of the Night by Alexander Chee: So, this was definitely a book I totally bought on a whim. A customer at my book store had returned it for whatever reason and the summary sounded so different from what I normally read that I decided to add it to my collection.

Earnest by Kristin von Kreisler: There’s a dog on the cover. That’s my main reason for picking up this book, haha! It seems like a romantic drama, a genre that I don’t normally read. But there’s a dog. Dogs make everything better!

Kindred by Octavia E. Butler: As many of you may know, I finished reading and reviewed this book this past month for Black History Month. It was an interesting read, and I recommend it!

The Inheritance Trilogy by N.K. Jemisin: Another book for Black History Month, I was looking for just the first book of the series, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms. I found the second and third part of the trilogy on the shelves before spotting the whole volume. I’m still in the middle of it and will hopefully finish it in time for a review tomorrow!

Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan: This was bought on a whim (like many of my books I’m finding) and was just looking for another good ol’ sword and sorcery fantasy.

Blessings, Fallout, and A Monster Calls by Anna Quindlen, Ellen Hopkins, and Patrick Ness: These were the three books that I got for Rachel. I think she enjoys my employee discount at my bookstore more than I do sometimes!

The Children of Húrin by J.R.R. Tolkien: It’s a book by J.R.R. Tolkien that I didn’t own yet. Seemed to be reason enough to buy it to me!

The Legend of Drizzt by R.A. Salvatore: With Double Jump, one of my monthly posts is a review on books that have to do with gaming, such as the setting or the characters. Why not read about a character from Dungeons & Dragons?

What are the newest books on your bookshelf?

    I just purchased The Queen of the Night too and will be reading it this month. I nominated it for a Goodreads bookclub March read and it actually won in the poll. Hopefully it doesn’t flop or I might have a few hundred angry club mates 🙂

      I’m sure it’ll be a good read! I’ve definitely had quite a few customers at work buying it. 🙂
