September 2019 Book Haul

I once again went overboard buying books this month.  Shopping on my phone when I’m stressed or can’t sleep has become too much of a habit. In September I purchased 27 books. Most were purchased in a big order from Barnes and Noble. The others were purchased from a thrift store, library book sale, Dollar Tree, and Thriftbooks.

  1. Aru Sha and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi
  2. This is Where it Ends by Marieke Nijkamp
  3. Caraval by Stephanie Garber
  4. The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
  5. Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
  6. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
  7. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
  8. Samantha Spinner and the Super Secret Plans by Russell Gins
  9. Bel Canto by Ann Patchett
  10. The Zodiac Legacy by Stan Lee
  11. Bed Knob and Broomstick by Mary Norton
  12. Star Girl by Jerry Spinelli
  13. Love That Dog by Sharon Creech
  14. Story Thieves by Riley James
  15. The Amateurs by John Niven
  16. Montana 1948 by Larry Watson
  17. The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion
  18. Grieving: A Love Story by Ruth Coughlin
  19. A Ladder to the Sky by John Boyne
  20. Son by Lois Lowry
  21. A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
  22. In a Dark Dark Wood by Ruth Ware
  23. First Person by Richard Flanagan
  24. The Forgetting Time by Sharon Guskin
  25. The Weaver by Emmi Itaranta
  26. Rehab Run by Barbara Leslie
  27. Before the Fall by Noah Hawley

So far I’ve read just one of these and I read it before I purchased it. That was Son by Lois Lowry, it was the last book from the quartet that I didn’t own.

I would say I’m hoping to purchase fewer books in October, but it’s the 5th and I already have a giant box of books on the way. I’m working with my grief counselor to find other ways to cope, so I’ll get there. But in the meantime I’m excited for another box of books to arrive.
