12 Audiobooks I recently purchased

2

Bird Box By: Josh Malerman – “a terrifying psychological thriller that will haunt you long after reading”. There’s a movie on Netflix based on the story, but I’m bit scared of watching it. Have you seen it, what do you think?

The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle By: Stuart Turton – “A brilliantly original high-concept murder mystery from a fantastic new talent: Gosford Park meets Inception by way of Agatha Christie.”

Sunburn By: Laura Lippman – another psychological thriller, recommended by Roxanne Gay: ‘Thrilling . . . I read this book at a furious pace and never forgot about it all year.’

Valentine’s Day Romance Novels Haul

Love to Hate You by Jo Watson: Sera is usually a good girl. (Except for one wild night in the backseat of a stranger’s car!) But what happens when that bad boy turns out to be her new boss?” Now that I’m reading this blurb I’m not so sure if I’ll enjoy this book… Based on the title I had an impression that this will be about a hate-to-love relationship. I’m slightly put off by the usage of ‘good girl’ in the blurb. Ah, what was I thinking when I bought it… Dirty Like Me by Jaine Diamond is a romance between a barista and a rockstar, where Katie wins a role in a new music video of a hot music star. The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory is author’s second book, and after great The Wedding Date my expectations are high for this novel. This story is about a very public proposal that didn’t turn into a happy ending.

My first Book Depository orders

Let’s go down the memory line, and see what are my first ever English books I bought. The first ever book I attempted to read in English was of course Harry Potter. I was obsessed with this book, so it was an obvious choice for me to read it in English. I never actually completed this book… My first Book Depository orders don’t represent the books I read in English first, before I invested my own money into those books I was borrowing books from my aunt. But after a while her books weren’t enough, and I had an enormous fascination with Lena Dunham and feminism at this point (first one is long gone, second is still with me), so here are the books I bought at this time, back in 2015.

First order: January 6th, 2015

The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P.

by Adelle Waldman

9780099558996

I’m pretty sure I bough this book because it was mentioned in Lena Dunham’s book or mentioned somewhere by her. I loved this book. I don’t remember much of it right now, but when I think about the book I just remember that I enjoyed it. Maybe I’ll re-read it soon to check my feelings about it now?

Haymarket Books prepared a list of books to give to radicals in your life. Books that may help them change their opinions, help them understand you.

Haymarket is offering 50% off the books on the list, so go and buy them! Click here to go to their page.

I had a look at their list and I just couldn’t resist buying some. I decided on three books.
