Summer Book Haul | Part Two

On Monday I shared the first lot of books I've bought over the summer months, and today I'm sharing the second. The books I'm sharing today were bought very late in August and feature some books I've heard a lot about recently, as well as some books that have been on my wishlist for a while.
 
(Not pictured | Landline by Rainbow Rowell - I didn't include this book in the picture as I have previously read Landline as a library borrow and just wanted to add it to my own collection of books)
 
Already Read | I have read one book from this haul so far and that is The Faster I Walk, The Smaller I Am. Originally written in Norwegian and translated to English, The Faster I Walk, The Smaller I Am is a really interesting book to read, but not your typical read, and a tad morbid with death being a focal topic. I will be sharing a full review in the future.
 
Most Excited To Read | Ah, there are so many books I want to delve in to from this particular purchase. Two stand outs for me though are Forbidden and In Darkling Wood. I'm intrigued to see how the subject matter at hand (love between a brother and sister) is handled in Forbidden, and with In Darkling Wood I'm just excited to discover new characters from Emma Carroll. Her writing as a whole is wonderful and you get enveloped in to her stories, but the characters and dynamics between them are always on point, well, based off of her first two books anyway.
 
What books have you purchased recently?

  2. I'll be anxious to see what you think of You when you read it! I've seen so many mixed reviews. I had to have a copy of Landline for my permanent library, too. :)

    1. I've heard some mixed reviews of You as well, I think it's a book very much of the moment and I'm interested to see how it unfolds.

      Landline is essential reading I think!

  3. Hmmm I've never come across a book about incestuous love before :-/ I'll be interested to see what you make of that. The Haunting of Hill House is wonderful though so I recommend you pick that up soon :) xx

    1. Me either, it's a tough topic to tackle and that's what intrigued me the most.

      Much like This House Is Haunted, I'm hoping to read The Haunting of Hill House next month - it was your review that pushed me to buy it after it being on my wishlist for a while. Enabler!!
