Bookhaul: April & May

Don’t be scared, but be warned. It’s a long list. I was lucky enough to find someone giving away their entire YA English collection and get a bunch of books from them. Also allowing me to spend most of my money otherwise. So, sit back and relax. It’s gonna take a while.

In the other that I bought/got them:

28802358Bought second hand at a flea market near Göttingen:

  1. In Sonnennähe by Januz A. Zajdel – a collection of Polish science fiction short stories by Zajdel.
  2. Wege zur Unmöglichkeit by various authors – a collection of (I think) German science fiction short stories.

Bought at a second hand store in Enschede:

  1. 156377Lyrebird by Cecelia Ahern
  2. The Elephant Man by Bernard Pomerance
  3. The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella
  4. Haantjes by Kluun

Got from my boyfriend, just because:

  1. The Bookshop Book by Jen Campbell
  2. 20631808The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir
  3. We should all be feminist by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Got for free through Facebook:

Bought as audiobooks to listen on our drive to Switzerland:

  1. Ach wär’ ich nur zu Hause geblieben by Kerstin Gier
  2. Lügen, die von Herzen kommen by Kerstin Gier
  3. Noah by Sebastian Fitzek503828

Bought in Switzerland, because you can’t go home without souvenirs. The first one at the flea market in Geneva, the second in a regular book shop:

  1. Feminist Perspectives on Eating Disorders by Patricia Fallon (and other authors)
  2. The Time Machine by H. G. Wells

20893527Got from the boyfriend, because I really loved the Netflix show:

  1. Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery

Yep, that’s all of them. For those (which I’m assuming is everyone) who didn’t count along. It’s a total of 37 books in two months.

This obviously means reducing my TBR isn’t going as well anymore as it did at the beginning of the year. Oh, well. I’m really excited about all the new (to me) books, so I’ll dive in as soon as I can. I’ve already finished a few of these. Others I’m currently reading.

How many books did you add to your bookshelves this month?

    1. I’ve only read Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, but it wasn’t really my thing, so I was afraid to buy any of her other books. I’m so glad I could get these for free, so I can read them and see whether I like them, without spending ridiculous amounts on them. I’ve heard so many good things about this series though, so I really hope I’ll love it too!

      1. There are a lot of readers out there who prefer one series over the other when it comes to Sarah’s books so I’m very excited to see what you’ll think of this series! It’s definitely nothing like the throne of glass series. I’ll be looking forward to your reviews!
