October Book Haul #1

I'm linking up with Tynga's Reviews and The Deliberate Reader to share this week's book haul.

This is the first book haul I've done for a while. I decided to wait til I had a fairly good amount of books to share. Here are my most recent acquisitions.

Physical Books:
Where We BelongTo Capture What We Cannot Keep

The Duchess of Bloomsbury StreetWhispersA Dangerous Place (Maisie Dobbs, #11)

Kindle Books:
A Tangled MercyFirst Impressions: A Novel of Old Books, Unexpected Love, and Jane AustenThe Welcome Home Diner

Church of the Small Things: The Million Little Pieces That Make Up a LifeThe Beautiful Mystery (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, #8)

I won Welcome Home Diner in a Goodreads giveaway. It looks really cute. A Tangled Mercy is a Kindle First pick for the month of October, and it was recommended by Modern Mrs. Darcy. It looks really good. 

Does anyone know if you have to read the Maisie Dobbs books have to be read in order? I picked up A Dangerous Place at a library sale not realizing it's #11 in the series. 

Have you read any of these? Let me know in the comments.

Today is all about the fallish covers. I live in Florida, so I pretty much miss fall all together. But, I can live vicariously through all the beautiful book covers of the season. I love all of the rich yellows, reds, and oranges this season brings. Here are some of my favorite autumn covers.

A Love So True (Teaville Moral Society #2)Beneath the Apple LeavesThe Cottingley Secret

The Dishonorable Miss Delancey (Regency Brides: A Legacy of Grace, #3)I See YouWhere We Belong

The Brutal Telling (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, #5)Into the Free (Into the Free #1)

Flirtation WalkA Sound Among the Trees

I hope you have a lovely fall. Cozy up with a good book and some hot (or iced) tea. Happy reading!

Book Review ~ Many Sparrows by Lori Benton

Many Sparrows

This novel is beautifully written, and it's getting great reviews on Goodreads. However, I'm just really struggling to get into it. Rather than give it a bad rating, I'm going to DNF it. I recommend checking out the Goodreads reviews and giving it a try. It's just not for me right now.

I received this book for free for the purpose of review.

September Wrap Up

I'm linking up with Modern Mrs. Darcy to share what I read this month.

Crossing to Safety (Modern Library Classics)
Crossing to Safety

This was the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club pick for September. It's very literary and character driven. That's code for not a lot happened and kind of slow. Parts of it were beautiful, so it's worth the read. 

With You Always (Orphan Train #1)
With You Always

This was a really nice historical romance. I enjoyed the setting and the story. It's the first book in a new series. I'll probably pick up the next book when it comes out. It was a good comfort read.

Where We Belong
Where We Belong

I did a full review of this book here.

Perennials

Still Life (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache #1)
Still Life

I have been slowly collecting these mysteries on my Kindle as they have gone on sale. I finally got around to reading the first book in the series. I loved it. I'm definitely a fan now. Thankfully, I have the next seven on hand.



The House on Foster Hill

The Women in the Castle: A Novel
The Women in the Castle

I've been meaning to read this book pretty much all year. I think I was afraid I wouldn't enjoy it as much as I wanted to. I was wrong. I loved it. It was heavy and a little dark, but I'm still thinking about it. Highly recommended.

Young Jane Young
Young Jane Young

This was a fun light read. I found it to be on the fluffy side although, I think it took itself a little seriously. One thing I didn't care for was how the child in the story was written. She was very smart and precocious in one chapter, and whiny and immature in the next. She annoyed me a little. Overall, I enjoyed the first half of the story than the second half.

What books did you read this month? Have you read any on my list? Let me know in the comments.

Can't Wait for The Dishonorable Miss Delancey

I'm linking up with Wishful Endings to share an upcoming release I'm excited about.

Can't wait for:
The Dishonorable Miss Delancey (Regency Brides: A Legacy of Grace, #3)

When does it release? October 24, 2017

Why am I waiting? I own the first two books in this series and I've heard really good things about them. I'll definitely want to complete my collection.
