August 2018 Books Bought

Since starting my blog back in August of 2008 (can you believe that at the end of the month I will have been blogging for 10 years?) I always want to share what books I get with you so that you can see what I will be reading and what new books there are out there 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 Reviews and Reading Reality. As Marlene has offered to co-host Stacking The Shelves with Tynga’s Reviews.

I am also going back to sharing my link on Mailbox Monday’s blog. This was originally hosted by Marcia but it now has its own blog which you can see by clicking on THIS.

I have decided to go back to how I was originally posting my monthly book hauls and just showing the books I bought in the month. If I get books from a publisher I will add those in here as well as I think it will be easier to keep track of those as well.

One of the things I love about these kinds of posts is finding new books that I might not normally hear about and this month I found a few goodies that I am excited about along with a few other bookies goodies I found.

Without further delay lets get into the books. I am doing this post as the month just because I am cleaning up my books (purging) so I don’t want to mistakenly put the new books away so I am doing this as I go  along so I am really hoping that this month won’t be another one of those crazy months that I end up buying half a bookstore. Fingers crossed and as you can see I did pretty good with book buying this month.

    • Ah thank you.. I need to remember to make a post about it.. I honestly never thought I would be here 10 years later doing what I love doing. I think 2008 was the year of the book blogger. A lot of people I know and follow are in this group.
