Half Year Haul: January to June, 2015

I would love to do more haul posts, but I just don’t get a lot of books. Here’s to hoping, one day, I’ll have the kind of job where buying books instead of borrowing them is the norm. Until then…. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Unless others noted, all of these were donated to one of the libraries at which I work and then taken home by me.

* These books came in Book Riot Quarterly Boxes (BR06 and BR07 to be specific)

† These books were Goodreads First Reads

HalfYearHaul1

  • Half-Resurrection Blues by Daniel José Older* (I decided to give away this after reading the summary)
  • Little Brother by Cory Doctorow
  • The Biology of Luck by Jacob M. Appel† (I gave this 30 minutes of reading and then decided it was a DNF)
  • On Beauty by Zadie Smith
  • Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End by Atul Gawande* (Even though this is a high-interest title, I have no interest in it – so I gave it to my library)

HalfYearHaul2

  • The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro
  • My Life in Middlemarch by Rebecca Mead†
  • The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
  • Smarter Than You Think: How Technology Is Changing Our Minds for the Better by Clive Thompson*

  • The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion (I can’t believe I scored this; it’s in pristine condition, too)
  • The Engagements by J. Courtney Sullivan
  • Three Amazing Things About You by Jill Mansell
  • American Gods by Neil Gaiman
  • The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
