Book Haul | March 2017


March is done and dusted and with it comes a new bookhaul. I had to include two books that I received in February but since I was on holiday in Bonn and Copenhagen I couldn't pick them up at the post office until March. This month I have a mix of everything; mostly novels but also two poetry books and a graphic novel. I haven't included the two novels I got in my Moth Box but I did an unboxing of that so check it out if you're interested. Without further ado, here are the books.




Books shown:

Nina is Not OK by Shappi Khorsandi
I Kill Giants by Joe Kelly and J. M. Ken Niimura
What We Buried by Caitlyn Siehl
Stranger, Baby by Emily Berry
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
Dreamland Burning by Jennifer Latham
The Good People by Hannah Kent
The Lonely Hearts Hotel by Heather O'Neill

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas | 2021 Reads

  I enjoyed this because Thomas focuses mostly on the internal conflicts of the main character and how her decisions affect her and everybody around her and still deals with a lot of racial issues that Black (and Brown) young people have to deal with in the US, especially in poor neighbourhoods. Bri is a teen going through a difficult time. She can seem hot-headed, opinionated and, at times, selfish, but she is just trying to be herself, help those she loves and pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. I was reminded though of why I rarely read YA contemporary fiction these days: one, dramatic teens (don't get me wrong, I get where they are coming from but still makes my eyes roll) and two, intentional lack of communication between adults and kids which drives me up the wall.
