Hello lovely readers, my book haul for this fall is relatively small. I haven’t had a ton of time to read recently and so I have a small collection of books that I’ve purchased not to mention I still have tons of unread books on my self. It may look larger, because I forgot to put the books I got from marginsbox in my summer book haul. I wanted to make sure to share them with you though so here they are too! There are a few nonfiction books this haul. I always try to encourage myself to read at least a couple nonfiction books a year to continue to learn and think critically about topics. Enjoy!
My Physical Books
Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell. I read the first Simon Snow book and while it was pretty good I am curious on the what comes after. I’ve never really read a book that explores the aftermath of what happens to a hero who has lost his power so I’m interested on where this will go.
Kingdom of Soul by Rena Barron. I love magic books, but a lot of them have gotten old and just honestly feel like Harry Potter spin-offs, but from what I’ve read of this book so far I’m really enjoying it. It has already introduced rich tribal nations and a character who is struggling with her lack of magic. I’m still reading it, but I’ve enjoyed the new spin on magic and world building so far!
Crier’s War by Nina Varela. I’m going to be honest I’m kinda scared to read this book. I’ve heard so much hype about it that I’m a little worried my expectations are going to be too high, but androids taking over with an enemies to lovers story line. I’m so intrigued!
Wicked Fox by Kat Cho. I received this is my third Marginsbox. I have mixed feelings about it based on the summary, but haven’t yet had a chance to read it. I do like the concept of tricky fox women though so I have hope.
With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo. I haven’t read this book either yet though I’ve heard so many excellent things about it.
Somewhere Only We Know by Maurene Goo. This is the second book I got in my Marginsbox. I’m gonna be honest and say that I would probably never have picked this book myself. I’m not a huge fan of flat out romance myself, but it could be interesting.
The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow. There’s something nostalgic in the summary of this book that just calls to me. It’s also supposed to be a fantasy novel so I’m excited
Knowledge, Difference, and Power: Essays Inspired by Women’s Way of Knowing. I picked this book up because another educator was speaking about it as an interesting take on ethics and morality and I wanted to give it a shot to see what it’s all about. Found it at my local bookstore.
The Pharaoh’s Treasure: The Origin of Paper and the Rise of Western Civilization by John Gaudet. I found this book at a Ren Faire I went to and it sparked my interest. Ancient Egypt has always been interesting and I’d like to know more about the origin of paper. Not really interested in the rise of western civilization bit, but we’ll see.
Whose Story is This? Old Conflicts, New Chapters by Rebecca Solnit. A book about who controls the narrative of our stories and how that power is starting to slowly change hands. I’m so interested and excited to read this!
