Every Sunday, we share the books that have found their way into our hands. Over the past several weeks, there have been quite a number of book sales here in Singapore – which naturally made me a very happy girl.
I actually received this review copy a few weeks ago and immediately read it – . Will be posting a review this week!
Book Sale in Cathay
When my husband and I picked up our daughter a few weeks ago, we passed by Cathay and chanced upon a random book sale. Naturally, I could not resist buying these lovelies: The Dark Tower (The Dark Tower #4): Wizard and Glass by Stephen King, The Teardrop Story Woman by Catherine Lim, The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco. These books are 3 for 10 sgd.
Book Sale in Big Box
This is quite the sweet deal: 3 brand new books for 10 dollars.
Women In Love by D. H. Lawrence, Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert, Sons and Lovers by D. H. Lawrence.
Marina by Carols Ruiz Zafon, A Hundred Flowers by Gail Tsukiyama, The Whispering Muse by Sjón.
Wild Cards: Busted Flush by George R. R. Martin, Wild Cards: Suicide Kings by George R. R. Martin, Wild Cards: Jokers Wild by George R. R. Martin.
The Penny Dreadful Collection: The Picture Of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, Keeping the Night Watch by Hope Anita Smith with illustrations by E. B. Lewis, Free City by João Almino.
I mentioned to Pansing Books that I still need to read a horror story for my Book Riot Read Harder Challenge, and they were kind enough to send me review copies of these Stephen King novels: Bazaar of Bad Dreams: Thrilling Stories and Mr Mercedes.
Finders Keepers by Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of The Craft by Stephen King
Golden by Melissa De La Cruz and Michael Johnston
Book Depository – My Mother’s Day Book Loot
I think I must have mentioned in my Facebook page how Book Depository is both a boon and a bane, my sin and my salvation. I know I should cease and desist from purchasing books, but how can I when Book Depository makes it so darn easy with just a few clicks. These are books that my husband got for me.
When I realized that this was a trilogy, I ordered all three titles by Alice Walker: The Color Purple, The Temple of My Familiar, Possessing the Secret of Joy
I have been waiting for this book for a long time. It’s here. The Pharos Gate: Griffin and Sabine’s Lost Correspondence by Nick Bantock.
