August 2017 Books Bought

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:

  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
  5. The Dolls by James Patterson with Kecia Bal (bookshots)
  6. Seal Wolf Undercover by Terry Spear
  7. A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena

  16. Holiday in the Hamptons by Sarah Morgan book 5 in the series
  17. Magnificent Vibrations by Rick Springfield (I got this at dollarama for $3 how could I pass this up?)
  18. All In Pieces by Suzanne Young was another bargain book
  19. Maybe In Paris by Rebecca Christiansen

Total books bought this month: 18

But when it comes to the simple matter of talking to Mik, or “Violin Boy,” her courage deserts her. Now, enough is enough. Zuzana is determined to make the first move, and she has a fistful of magic and a plan. It’s a wonderfully elaborate treasure hunt of a plan that will take Mik all over Prague on a cold winter’s night before leading him to the treasure: herself! Violin Boy is not going to know what hit him.

New York Timesbestselling author Laini Taylor brings to life a night only hinted at in the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy–the magical first date of fan-favorites Zuzana and Mik. Originally published as an ebook, this new print edition will include breathtaking black and white illustrations, plus bonus content in a gorgeous package perfect for new and current fans of the series.

Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow. This comes out October 31, 2017

ABOUT

A breathtaking, enchanting new series by debut author Jessica Townsend, about a cursed girl who escapes death and finds herself in a magical world–but is then tested beyond her wildest imagination

Morrigan Crow is cursed. Having been born on Eventide, the unluckiest day for any child to be born, she’s blamed for all local misfortunes, from hailstorms to heart attacks–and, worst of all, the curse means that Morrigan is doomed to die at midnight on her eleventh birthday.

But as Morrigan awaits her fate, a strange and remarkable man named Jupiter North appears. Chased by black-smoke hounds and shadowy hunters on horseback, he whisks her away into the safety of a secret, magical city called Nevermoor.
It’s then that Morrigan discovers Jupiter has chosen her to contend for a place in the city’s most prestigious organization: the Wundrous Society. In order to join, she must compete in four difficult and dangerous trials against hundreds of other children, each boasting an extraordinary talent that sets them apart–an extraordinary talent that Morrigan insists she does not have. To stay in the safety of Nevermoor for good, Morrigan will need to find a way to pass the tests–or she’ll have to leave the city to confront her deadly fate.

Against all odds, Ruby has defeated the villainous Frost King and melted his powerful throne. But the bloodthirsty Minax that was trapped inside is now haunting her kingdom and everyone she loves. The answers to its demise may lie to the south in Sudesia, the land of the Firebloods, and a country that holds the secrets to Ruby’s powers and past….
Despite warnings from her beloved Arcus, Ruby accompanies a roguish Fireblood named Kai to Sudesia, where she must master her control of fire in a series of trials to gain the trust of the suspicious Fireblood queen. Only then can she hope to access the knowledge that could defeat the rampaging Minax–which grows closer every moment. But as sparks fly in her moments alone with Kai, how can Ruby decide whom to trust? The fate of both kingdoms is now in her hands.
