Book Haul – 26 June 2019

I managed to get a pretty interesting haul of books in the last week and a half, and figured it was time to share before I get too distracted by the next batch of books I’m hoping to get.  The latest haul is a really cool mixture of books, and I am really keen to check them all out when I get a chance.

A Capitol Death by Lindsey Davis

I have been looking forward to this one for a few months and it is the only book on this list I spent some money on.  Given how much I loved Pandora’s Boy though, I know I’m going to enjoy this latest book in the Flavia Albia series.

The Need by Helen Phillips

One of the more unusual books I got this week, it sounds like the story looks at alternate realities which could be cool.

The Bastille Spy by C. S. Quinn

This one sounds like a pretty awesome historical fiction novel and it pretty high up on my to-read list at the moment.

Nothing Ventured by Jeffrey Archer

I was really happy to get a copy of the upcoming Jeffrey Archer book Nothing Ventured.  His last book, Heads You Win, was a great read and this new book looks really interesting.

The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t With Her Mind by Jackson Ford

That title alone should explain why I want to read this book.

To Calais, In Ordinary Time by James Meek

Set during a chaotic period of history, this looks like it will be a powerful historical drama and could be a great read.

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

I only just got this book today, but I am really keen to check it out.  It sounds like a pretty cool young adult fantasy novel and I am very much looking forward to reading it.
