September 2015 Book Haul

1:00 pm

I spent the majority of September with only two books hauled, but the latter half of the month got a bit crazy. An unexpected bout of second-hand book shopping occurred, as you will see below...


New

The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys - Gerard Way, Shaun Simon, and Becky Cloonan
Gerard Way's comic series that accompanies My Chemical Romance's Danger Days concept album. I've already read this and will be posting a review shortly.

Elizabeth Gilbert's eagerly anticipated new release. I've listened to every episode of the Magic Lessons podcast that accompanies this book and I cannot wait to get stuck in. I'm certainly one for getting creative ideas and not acting on them.


Second-Hand

The Dream Thieves - Maggie Stiefvater
The sequel to The Raven Boys (which I reviewed here and adored). No more explanation needed.

Women in Antiquity - Charles Seltman
Found in a specialist bookstore (what they specialised in, I couldn't tell you) and I knew I needed it as soon as I saw it. It appears to have zero reviews on Goodreads which makes me slightly nervous.

A Wizard of Earthsea - Ursula Le Guin
The first book in Le Guin's Earthsea Cycle, and my first exploration into her fantasy, rather than her sci-fi. I wasn't immediately won over by The Left Hand of Darkness, so I'm interested to see if this will invest me more.

The Hugo Winners 1963-1967 - ed. Isaac Asimov
Does what it says on the tin: a selection of Hugo Award winners, chosen by Asimov. Includes works from Poul Anderson and Harlan Ellison.

Americanah - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
After inhaling We Should All Be Feminists, I knew I needed to read some of Adichie's fiction. This is certainly the one I've heard the most about.


From Publishers

Pure* - Rose Bretécher (Received from Unbound)
A review for this eye-opening memoir on Pure-O can be found here (as of 3rd October, so you may have to wait!). Spoilers: I loved it.
