I’ve decided to split the books I bought this month into three separate hauls. The main reason for that is that it’s too much otherwise. I bought a total of 23 books in the month of April. I don’t even know how.
I’ve already posted my first haul over here. It’s a total of six books, which I bought at a charity fair kind of thing. This haul, on the other hand, is another six books, all from the online book buying site Bookdepository.
Percy Jackson (books 3, 4 and 5) by Rick Riordan
I finally managed to pick up the last books in the Percy Jackson series! I finished these books a long time ago, but I am re-reading them in English, as at the time I read them in German. I’m currently still reading The Wise Man’s Fear (I am SO close to finishing it), so after that huge epic fantasy ride I’ll need some light-hearted and fun books. Percy is perfect for that.
The only thing that bothers me is that they changed the covers of the books right after I picked up the first one. So now all the books match EXCEPT THE FIRST ONE. Why does this always happen to me?
Hold Your Own by Kate Tempest
This is a wonderful poetry collection that I already read and did a full review of here. I absolutely loved it.
Percy Jackson and the Greek Heroes by Rick Riordan
I read Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods last year and ADORED it. It was one of my favourite reads of the year, which is kind of unusual for a non-fiction book. So obviously I had to pick up this one as well. You have no idea how excited I am to get into this.
A Little Gay History by R. B. Parkinson
I really wanted to find a bigger picture of the book but it seems impossible, so let’s just ignore that, shall we? This is a non-fiction book about gay history – I think the title makes that pretty clear. I already own a very dense and big LGBT history book, so I wanted something short and sweet, possibly with lots of pictures. And this is exactly what I wanted!
(I tried to take pictures of the inside of the book but to take a nice photo I would have had to damage the spine and the book is way too pretty for that. So no pictures, sorry!)
These are all the books I ordered from Bookdepository! The next haul will be orders from AbeBooks – a total of 11 books. So look forward to that one!
‘Till next time and happy reading!
