My June – November Collective Book Haul Part 2

And I’m back with the second part of my book haul. This part includes the hardbound books that I got in the last six months.

These books again are books that I bought, gifted or given to me and I’ve won from giveaways. To view the first part, kindly click here.

I am dividing this book haul into two parts. The first being the YA part and the second, the contemporary and modern literary classics. My advance apologies if I’ll be wrong in classifying some of the books because like what I said in my first book haul, I’m bad at it. 🙂

Knowing myself, who really can’t control his book buying addiction, I am sure that I am still going to buy books after this big book haul. Whenever I say to myself that I should no longer be buying books, I always end up still buying more books. So I will not promise anything, I just hope I’ll have self-control next time.

The end of my TBR tunnel is still far and with this book haul, it got doubled. But I have no regrets because I love buying books and I love reading them. It is already a part of my system. Some people may not understand but it has become my way of de-stressing and I just feel this certain joy and calmness when I am being surrounded by books. 🙂

Tell me what books have you read from the above books and what you think should I read next. 🙂 What books have you got recently? 🙂
