January book buying

Read time: a minute

With the new year come aspirations to hoard more books, but I have made a conscious decision to reduce buying books I don’t really want. Hence, I have decided to stick to my list of books and try to buy only those (even as I am writing this, all I can think of is about the titles that I’ve never heard but will be on my shelves soon, from my visit to the bookstore!)


But January was a good month where I did stick to my wish list. I picked Jihadi Jane, Lifting the veil and Milk and honey from my wishlist! I really look forward to reading at least one of these really soon.

Apart from this, I got a religious book that elaborates on the 99 names of Allah. I received The twentieth __wife and Heartless in my Jan box from The Biblio Box. I really enjoy fiction set amidst the royalties, and the ones set in India especially!

I happened to receive a review copy of Here be dragons from the author himself and a very dear friend who I met via the wonderful world of books gifted me Why I write.

With a mix of review copies, gifts and books that I actually wanted to buy, my book hoarding has started on a good note! Hope you have some fun book buying plans for 2017 as well!
