I’ve often seen posts about book hauls. I haven’t posted one of my own before. While at a street party this weekend, I was perusing a book stall. “50 cents for one book or 5 books for a Euro” the sign read. That’s right! €1! ($1.12 for 5 books!)
After searching through the boxes, I found these…
1. Title: Two Brothers
Why I picked it up: It’s historical fiction, set in Berlin in WWII.
2. Title: The Messenger
Author: Daniel Silva
Why I picked it up: I love art history and I’m intrigued by the idea of an art history spy. Although this is part of a series, I haven’t read the others before. I’ve been curious about this series.
(Also, this book is hardback and still had its €28 sticker on it!)
4. Title: The Paying Guests
Author: Sarah Waters
Why I picked it up: I haven’t actually read anything by Sarah Waters before, but of course I know of her and I remember reading about The Paying Guests when it was on Publishers Lunch (a literary email for those in the industry…)
5. Title: L is for Lawless
Author: Sue Grafton
Why I picked it up: The key on the cover intrigued me. Sue Grafton is another author on this list that I’ve not read before. The back of the book described secrets and WWII. That’s a combination that I find intriguing in my reading and in my own writing.
Have you read any of these?
What have been your best book hauls?
My best to you all,
