July was a bad month for book buying, or a really good month depending on how you look at it. I bought 12 books. TWLEVE.
During the month I took two different trip to chapters. On the first trip I was fairly good and only bought two books:
- The Robber Bride – Margaret Atwood
- The Light Between Oceans – M.L. Stedman
The second trip, I was not so good, despite knowing that I was going to Toronto at the end of the month and needed money for my trip. I went with my friend Jaclyn and neither of us were successful at reining in my spending. There I bought
- Paper Girls Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughan to read on the plane
- The Fate of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
- The Gunslinger by Stephen King
- The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
Meanwhile, I had ordered some books off of Book Depository because I could not get them here in Canada for The End of the World Book Club. I ended up reading the first of these during the month so I didn’t feel as bad about it. I got both
- The Midwich Cuckoos by John Wyndham
- The Fallen Children by David Owen which is based off of the former.
Finally, while I was in Toronto I bought more books because WHY NOT. Luckily they didn’t make my luggage overweight. At the Chapters in the Eaton Centre I bought
- Paper Girls Vol. 2 – Brian K. Vaughan
- Nimona – Noelle Stevenson
- Cinder – Marissa Meyer
- The Essex Serpent – Sarah Perry
As an added bonus I also borrowed The Shadow of What Was Lost by James Islington from my Dad. Because 12 wasn’t enough.
This book buying binge was excessive. Hopefully I’ll get around to reading these books in the coming months.
