October Book Haul!


 

Hello Readers! See? I can write 2 posts in a week! It doesn’t always have to be 15 days without a post. (Though that could be the case in the near future!) Anyway, the last many months all of us were stuck at home. Initially we weren’t even able to order books. But, now that we can, here’s another book haul post for you all! I think I must have bought these many books for third time this year!

The books I bought this month aren’t necessarily the ones that have been too long on my TBR or even for too short a time. This time I have ordered randomly. I went to my ‘To Read’ stack on Goodreads, saw the number of pages, saw the reviews briefly & then added a bunch of books to the cart.

 

~~PACHINKO by MIN JIN LEE~~

Of the 6 books I bought, only ‘Pachinko’ by Min Jin Lee has forever been in the cart. Set in early 1900s, this belongs to my favourite HISTORICAL FICTION genre.

Pages: 496

Goodreads Rating: 4.27/5

~~THE COLOR PURPLE by ALICE WALKER~~

Also, Alice Walker’s ‘The Color Purple’ which I had already read on e-book was on my list since long. I liked it so much that I needed to have a copy with me.

Pages: 304

Goodreads Rating: 4.22/5

~~COLORLESS TSUKURU TAZAKI AND HIS YEARS OF PILGRIMAGE by HARUKI MURAKAMI~~

The others are pretty random. It has been quite some time that I read Murakami (the last book of his that I read was ‘The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle’ which was terrible.) But, because a few months have gone by now, I ordered another book of his with fairly fewer pages. I hope ‘Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage’ has something good in it for me.

Pages: 314

Goodreads Rating: 3.85/5

~~THE BEEKEEPER OF ALEPPO by CHRISTY LEFTERI~~

Next on the list is ‘The Beekeeper of Aleppo’ by Christy Lefteri. This book kept popping up here & there so many times. I finally looked it up & turns out it is a historical fiction with war factoring in the story. Um, YES PLEASE! You guys know by now how much I love such stories. If you have forgotten, you better check out my reviews for – The Nightingale & ‘And the Mountains Echoed.’

Pages: 317

Goodreads Rating: 4.23/5

~~THE STORYTELLER by JODI PICOULT~~

Next we have Jodi Picoult’s ‘The Storyteller’. I have only recently been familiarized with Jodi Picoult. She has written a lot of amazing books & so I thought it was about time to read them. I decided to start with ‘The Storyteller’ because I have heard good reviews about it. I also got a new hardcover from Amazon at a reasonable prize, which is always such a thrill for book geeks like me!

Pages: 461

Goodreads Rating: 4.27/5

~~ANXIOUS PEOPLE by FREDRIK BACKMAN~~

And then finally we have Fredrick Backman’s ‘Anxious People’. Again, Fredrik Backman is everyone’s favourite author. I have also LOVED some of his books & given the intriguing title of his latest book, I knew I had to read it. This one has again been on my TBR for quite some time!

Pages: 352

Goodreads Rating: 4.38/5

 

That’s about it! My huge bookshelf has started to fill up really well & with another few books, I won’t have space in it! In addition to the above, I am also yet to read the books that I bought back in July! These include both of Madeline Miller’s books, The People in the Trees by Hanya Yanagihara & another book I bought last month – Jasmine Days by Benyamin. I hope I will get some motivation to read these as well!


Until next time,
