As a bookworm, it is the greatest joy in life to haul some books. Nothing beats the possibility of acquiring stories that bring inspiring characters. It is even more amazing when these characters are put on great quests. I cannot wait to tell you about the stuff coming in the mail. Here are the book gems I nabbed for June 2018.Bookworm’s Dream Book Haul: Series
I have gathered up some courage to embrace my love for Sarah J. Maas. Actually, I have been listening to her interviews and she sounds so delightful. I acknowledge that elements of her writing are problematic. However, her characters have stayed with me all the way since February.
My book haul included stories from her two series.
A Court of Thorn and Roses series
I have ordered a copy of the first two book in this (so far) trilogy. Feyre is all over Tumblr and I want to see if she will resonate with me, or if some other character will strike a sense of familiarity and representation.
Throne of Glass series
The first three books in the series were all I could afford for now. The plan is to pick up a book or two per month, depending on how much they cost at that point. As I was able to read the first five books from the library, I want to make my purchases up until Tower of Dawn and maybe reread parts of Empire of Storms when I get my own copy as well.
I remain unsure of whether the novellas are something I need soon or later on. Sam and the feels need to be in my life at some point.
Bookworm Goals: Try New Series
I picked up the first book in the Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard. While the series received mixed responses, I like what I have seen from the fandom on Tumblr and YouTube. Besides, I enjoyed the author’s ideas when she was on a panel with Sarah J. Maas, Alexandra Bracken, and Susan Dennard. The panel brought joy to me, so much that I often think of the discussion brought up within said panel.
Bookworm Quest to Better Self:
And finally, I purchased a used copy of Gala Darling’s book called Radical Self Love. Her videos have been a great guiding tool for me so I aim to carry on my journey for healthier relationships.
If you have not seen videos of Gala or visited her blog, you totally should check her out. Here’s a link to the blog.
Another figure that has come up so far through podcasts and videos is Katie Dalebout. She wrote a book on journal-writing that I have snagged a copy of. It’s called, aptly, Let it Out.
Your turn! Share your own June purchases (or plans of what you’d like to haul this month).
See you in comments.
