Book Haul [33] - SO. MUCH. BETTER.

This month's book haul is SO.  MUCH.  BETTER.  I was definitely more intentional in my book purchases; however, I'm not including books that have been pre-ordered until the month that they arrive.  So, yeah, I bought some books that aren't listed on this list, but they won't be here until their release dates.  Yes, plural -- there are quite a few.


1. The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah
I've been on the fence about picking this one up.  I loved The Nightingale, but haven't been blown away by some of her other books.  But the rave reviews online got to me, and I had a gift card for my birthday, so .... yeah.  AND IT'S SO PRETTY.


2. Two Steps Forward by Graeme Simsion
My request on Edelweiss was still pending, but I saw this at Chapters and it's a month earlier than the Edelweiss release date?!?  Maybe it's just published earlier in Canada.  In any case, finding this, and seeing it was on sale, meant that I instantly had to purchase it.  I'm so excited to see how he co-writes with his wife.  And then my request on Edelweiss was approved ... five days before the publication date (according to Edelweiss?).  So now I gotta hurry up and read this book!


3. I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
RBC has an annual book sale to support BC Children's Hospital.  In addition to one for my husband and a pile of books for Marko, I saw this one and I've wanted to read this for years and years.


4. The Hour I First Believed by Wally Lamb
I almost forgot to add this to my haul because I've already read it!  This was another book that I picked up at the RBC book sale, and it's my favourite of Wally Lamb's books, but I didn't own a copy. So, not bad to buy two books for myself, and one of them I've already read.
