October Book Haul (Part 1)



I mentioned in my last post that I may have gone WAY overboard last month when it comes to buying book. I actually almost went a little crazy when I would think of stopping by a thrift store. My palms would get a little sweaty and my heart would begin to race. Yes. My name is Christine. I have a book problem. Anyway – before going any further in this post be warned I am banning you from judging my eagerness to snatch up too many books within a 31 day period. Got it? Good.

A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon

I am BEYOND excited to read About Grace by Anthony Doerr. Since All the Light We Cannot See I have become slightly obsessed with Doerr’s writing and descriptions.

I noticed in my hunt for books that I am not overly picky. I tend to lean towards books I have heard of or an author I’ve read or others rave about, but I’ll try almost anything once. I read a few of the Sammy Keyes books when I was younger and I feel like my age will never be able to restrict the joy of reading an easy, mindless, fun book usually directed towards children and younger. I also hear great things about Outlander so I’ll be excited when I get to that!

Oct 7Has anyone read any of these? Would love to hear about it!
