To put it simply, my resolution of buying fewer books failed abysmally in May, but I have no regrets, just look at that beautiful collection of new books (I’d insert the hearts eyes emoji here if I could!) Even more excitingly, seven of this month’s haul are signed first editions, and you all know how much of a sucker I am for collectables.
Most excited to read:
Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli
The first book in this semi-series, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, is one of my favourite LGBT YA novels, so I’m very excited to see what becomes of the characters I grew to love.
Most excited to own:
Circe by Madeline Miller (signed)
Although I’ve yet to read Madeline Miller’s debut, The Song of Achilles, both books have received such stellar praise that I’m very excited to dive into her mythological novels soon.
N.B. The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k by Sarah Knight should have been included in April’s Book Haul, but I misplaced it.
