Happy Saturday, bookworms! What’s everyone reading this weekend? I’m in the very beginning of a million things, and a bit of a brain fog 🧠 in the latter half of this week hasn’t helped matters! Got my fingers crossed for some progress this weekend, but it might just be a TV show catchup time and that’s OK too ✨
HOWEVER that fogginess didn’t stop me from going to the monthly book sale this morning. Here’s what I picked up!
• A Vindication of The Rights of Women by Mary Wollstonecraft, a nonfiction classic which I might dip into a bit for women’s history month
• Ninefox Gambit by Yoon Ha Lee, a science fiction I’ve heard good things about
• Still Life by Melissa Milgrom, a nonfiction look at taxidermy that I’m SO excited to add to my weird “death science shelf”
• The Collected Schizophrenias by Esmè Weijun Wang, a memoir which I’ve listened to last year
• I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith, a classic I only recently heard about but am intrigued to pick up
• Broken Harbor by Tana French, part of her Dublin Murder Squad mystery series
• On Beauty by Zadie Smith, a literary/satire
• We Have Always Lived In The Castle by Shirley Jackson, a creepy classic I’ve already read
• The Shadow of What Was Lost by James Islington, an epic fantasy I mostly picked up for my boyfriend
Not the best haul I’ve ever had (and I did accidentally buy another Tana French that I already owned), but not bad. I’m most excited for Still Lives and Ninefox Gambit!
Do you ever accidentally buy books you already own? No, just me? I’ll see myself out…
