April Book Haul

Hi guys,

So, it’s time for my monthly book haul post, and I’ve been very good this month. I’ve tried to avoid book-buying, but let’s face it, I have an addiction to feed. Plus, I did what I always seem to do on the last day of the month, yep, I bought some books!

For any of you who don鈥檛 know, this is where I list the books that have made Bibliophile Book Club their new home in the previous month. The books are usually bought books, ARC鈥檚 sent from publishers, Netgalley review books and just basically any books I get go on here.

Here we go…

  1. The Lost Ones by Ben Cheetham
  2. But For The Grace of God by Paul Grzegorzek
  3. Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight
  4. The Cleaner by Mark Dawson
  5. The Marriage Lie by Kimberly Belle
  6. Don’t Wake Up by Liz Lawlor
  7. The Roses of May by Dot Hutchinson
  8. Obsession by Amanda Robson

  22. Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor

See!!! I told you I was good this month. I managed to read 17 books in April, so I only have a deficit of 5 books in what I took in versus how many I read, so I’m guessing this is my best month yet, but to be honest this is the first time I’ve ever actually checked books read vs. books received!
