Book Haul

It’s been a while since I posted a haul and I just recently went thrifting and managed to snag a bunch of books for very cheap! I think for all ten of these books I paid under $15 which I think is definitely a steal! I honestly love perusing through thrift stores and op shops and seeing what people have been reading and donating and seeing a title or author that I recognise and jump out at me is just so fulfilling!

Foreboding Book Titles

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is funny book titles. I couldn’t really come up with ten funny book titles so I decided to go in the opposite direction and pick out my top ten most foreboding book titles instead.

My Top Ten most foreboding book titles are:

The Midnight Library by Matt Haig

Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire

Burn our Bodies Down by Rory Powers

The Deck of Omens by Christine Lynn Herman

Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager

No Exit by Taylor Adams

The Damned by Renee Ahdieh

He Started It by Samantha Downing

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite

Book Titles that Sound like Song Titles

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is book titles that sound like they’re song titles. So I went through all the books I read recently and these books definitely gave me song title vibes!

No Exit by Taylor Adams

Watch Over Me by Nina Lacour

He Started It by Samantha Downing

The One by John Marrs

Burn by Patrick Ness

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski

The Dreamers by Karen Thompson Walker

A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara

I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo

July Wrap Up

I’ve had a pretty great reading month in terms of quantity, the quality of the books were a little average though. There was a lot that I thought I would love that were just kind of ok. I participated in two readathons this month which went really well and I read a lot of books that have been on my radar now for a while so I am definitely satisfied with that!
