Hey y’all! I’m back with another Blogmas post! Today I am going to talk about all of the books that I purchased in the month of November. These were bought over the course of the whole month of November from various places. I bought a total of 17 books this month so let’s get started.
Book of the Month pick for November: Bonfire by Kristen Ritter – This book is written by the actress who plays Jessica Jones and was in Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23. This book is an adult thriller novel that I have heard nothing but incredible things about. I will probably pick this up on a weekend and devour it in one sitting.
If you don’t know what book of the month is or you want to sign up you can use my link here.
I also surprisingly won a Book Riot Giveaway. I didn’t really think people won these but I did. The book they sent me is The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden. This is book two in The Winternight Trilogy. This is a fairy-tale esq book that has Russian folklore elements to it. I haven’t ready the first book The Bear and the Nightingale (but it may show up in an upcoming haul ;)).
The next two books I want to talk about I bought from my library’s on-going book sale. The hardbacks are $1 and the paperbacks are $.50. I bought two paperbacks this month.
The Girl in the Spider Web by David Lagercrantz – This is a continuation from the Millenium Trilogy since Stieg Larsson has passed. I am interested to see what happens next but it has been a while since I have read the books so I would want to re-read the trilogy.
Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln by Doris Kearns Goodwin – This is a HUGE non-fiction book about Abraham Lincoln. This was also the basis for the movie Lincoln. I have heard that although this book is big, it is very readable and Doris Kearns Goodwin is a great biographer.
Next I picked up 6 books from Dollar Tree over the month. I love buying books at Dollar Tree for the obvious reason. I don’t know a whole lot about them so I’m just going to list them and I’ll also link the Goodreads for them:
Lastly, Here are the books that I picked up from Half Priced Books. I just love Half Priced Books and I think I am most excited for these. I went a couple of times this month and this is all that I picked up:
Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey – This is book one in the Expanse series. I don’t know a whole lot about it but I do know that I would like to read more Sci-Fi because I think it will please my inner science nerd that I keep clamped down these days.
Green Earth by Kim Stanley Robinson – This is a bind up of one of her series. I got a really good deal on this and only paid like $3.
Female Executions by Geoffrey Abbott – This is a non-fiction book about female executions. It is set up kind of like an encyclopedia. It sounded interesting so I bought it.
Into the Dim by Janet B. Taylor – This is a YA fantasy series and that’s about all I want to know. The sequel came out some time this year and I’m interested into getting into this. Maybe this will be one that I absolutely love because I am searching.
The Hot Zone: The Terrifying True Story of the Origins of the Ebola Virus by Richard Preston – This is another non-fiction book that I picked up. I do like medical books and I heard that this read like a fiction.
The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness – This is the final book in the All Souls Trilogy. I’m loving this series and cannot wait to see how it all ends. This is definitely a series that I would revisit in the future and will recommend for a while.
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt – This is a historical fiction I believe. I bought this book because it is a part of a project that I plan on doing next year and it was less than $3.
Well that is all that I have for November book haul. What did you pick up in November? What did you buy this month? Let’s chat in the comments.
