July Book Haul

I haven’t been buying that many books lately, but temptation in the form of the UK Summer Kindle Sale was too much to bear.



Shadow Study (Soulfinders #1) by Maria V. Snyder
I’ve read the first trilogy starting with Poison Study but not the second trilogy although I do own it. I just have to get reading them.


Anno Dracula by Kim Newman
Everyone seems to love this book. It’s been recommended to me a number of times.


Déjà Dead (Temperance Brennan #1) by Kathy Reichs
I loved TV show Bones! (I stopped watching during season 10.) I’ve heard the source materials quite a bit from the adaption.


What the **** is Normal?! by Francesca Martínez
I’ve seen Francesca interviewed on TV. I found her both funny and intelligent. I expect her experience of the world as someone with cerebral palsy will be interesting.


The Invisible Woman by Helen Walmsley-Johnson
Yes, I’ll be reading yet another memoir based on the universal of experience of being an ageing woman in the 21st century.


A few educational reads:


Adventures in Human Being by Gavin Francis
500 Words You Should Know by Caroline Taggart
A Classical Education: The Stuff You Wish You’d Been Taught in School by Caroline Taggart
Amazing True Stories Of Execution Blunders by Geoffrey Abbott



There were a few good Kindle deals that were actually appealing for once.



Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie
This was hot stuff when it was released, receiving multiple awards. I want to know whether it lives up to the hype.


Childhood’s End by Arthur C. Clarke
The City and the Stars by Arthur C. Clarke
Sci-fi classics are definitely of interest to me right now. So many of them have been adapted into movies, even short stories.


The Unleashing by Shelly Laurenston
I have yet to read the original book Hunting Season, but as I own it I can compare what’s been changed to turn it into a series.



A trip to The Works today saw me buy these for £2 each and the first two are hardcovers!


The Works july 2015

The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave #1) by Rick Yancey
Quips, Quotes & Retorts for Oldies
The Giant Bathroom Book of Cartoons

A little light entertainment never did anyone any harm.



Sixteen books for £27!
