Okay. I’m pushing for this to be my last book haul for the year. Hopefully, I can hold out until then… either that or I’m not allowed to purchase anything more until the end of summer, when I’ll hopefully have read a couple more of the books I already own.
Anyway, I only have a few here.
The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty
I added it to my TBR because I kept hearing great things about it, and I bought it after reading this interesting post over on Biblionyan about lessons on faith and individuality that the Daevabad books inspired.
Women in Art: 50 Fearless Creatives Who Inspired the World by Rachel Ignotofsky (illus.)
Rachel Ignotofsky has a wonderful selection of illustrated reference books that are great for teens and adults. I’ve always wanted a copy of this one on women artists and I also own a copy of her book about the environment and ecosystems.
Malaika’s Costume by Nadia L. Hohn, illus. by Irene Luxbacher
I bought this for a friend’s baby and had to get myself a copy too. It’s set in Trinidad, I believe, and is about a girl who wants to participate in the carnival.
Worlds of Wonder: A Coloring Book for the Curious by Johanna Basford (illus.)
Despite corona raging on causing everywhere to lock down, it’s been a while since I’ve colored in any of my coloring books, so I have no idea when I’ll get the chance to color in this one; plus, I’m tired of sitting at my desk. But I bought it anyway because it has illustrations of houses and I love such illustrations and Basford’s work is always beautiful.
HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER’S STONE by J.K. Rowling, illus. by MinaLima Design
I have more than one edition of the Harry Potter books and have told myself that I don’t need anymore, but I’ve always wanted this one ever since it came out. I like the illustrations and pop ups. So, since I could get it on discount, I did. 🙂
Legendborn by Tracy Deonn
I’ve seen a lot of great reviews for this but have avoided it because it’s YA fantasy and those have been very hit or miss for me. But I’m looking forward to trying it anyway because a friend highly praises it and bought me a copy for my birthday! 😊
I received these two from my bookstore job.
I Am the Rage by Martina McGowan, illus. by Diana Ejaita
I’m not a fan of poetry, but I read part of the first one in this collection and was feeling the emotion in it, so I decided to try it. I like that the book is illustrated. This one is already out.
Talk Bookish to Me by Kate Bromley
It’s a contemporary romance that seems like it’ll be fun and appeal to my bookish heart. It will be pubbed on May 25.
