August 2017 Books Bought

Since starting my blog back in August of 2008 I always try to share what books I get with you so that you can see what I will be reading and I am always looking for a place to link them so that others can see them so from now on I will be sharing my links on Tynga’s Reviewsand Reading Reality. As Marlene has offered to co-host Stacking The Shelves with Tynga’s Reviews. Marlene is a new to be blogger and I look forward to checking out her blog.

As you can see I switched this up and will be posting monthly because  I have to say since doing this instead of posting the books in my weekly haul I am much more aware of the books that I am buying.

I am trying to get better with my book buying and trying to stick to sales, bargain books or reward plum bonus point events. As a book lover its hard not to buy books.

I honestly don’t know how this haul is going to go this month because I am pre-writing this as I get the books. I was on vacation the first week of the month and was in the US so I picked up a few things that I know I couldn’t get here in Canada without having to order online and then Chapters has been having these sales with brand new releases so how could I pass those up? Okay just putting in an update before this is going live and I have to say I went a little over board on the books this month.

Anyways this is what I have bought this month:

  1. Midnight at the Electric by Jodi Lynn Anderson
  2. The Lying Game by Ruth Ware
  3. Women’s Murder Club the Medical Examiner by James Patterson with Maxine Paetro (bookshots)
  4. The Marriage Pact by Michelle Richmond

  1. It’s cool that you keep track of how many books you buy each year. I should probably start doing that. I hope you enjoy them all!

    • Before I started to read I would basically buy when I needed books but since blogging my book buying has gotten out of hand so in order to curb my spending I find keeping a record of what I bought when actually helps plus honestly if i am out shopping i can pull up my blog easily to see what I have at home LOL
