Okay, there may be more than I realized, especially if you include these library sale purchases:

The book about The Waste Land was an especially serendipitous find as I started reading The Waste Land, last month, and basically had to put my head back together with duct tape. Or, it felt that way. I need help understanding it. Also, the two outside books, both on poetry, are fitting because it's National Poetry Month. Wahoo! So far, I haven't read anything but random poems online. I'll need to remedy that.

I know I missed at least one book, but I've already reviewed it so . . . close enough.

  1. I just finished The Infinite Sea this morning. I think I listened to it i less than 3 days. Do you know if it's a trilogy?

    1. I don't have any idea. I looked at Rick Yancey's website and couldn't find an answer but realized I really ought to reread The 5th Wave before moving on. I remember scenes but have forgotten a lot about that first book. Glad you enjoyed The Infinite Sea!

    2. I found out today at work that it is a trilogy. And, you don't need to bother re-reading The 5th Wave. Yancey does a great job filling in the back story in the opening chapters. I thought the same as you, but once I got going, I'm glad I didn't bother.

    3. Oh, good. Thanks for telling me that. I watched the trailers at Yancey's website, today, and that's what made me think I needed to reread the first book. Glad you figured out it's a trilogy (and saw that tweet tagging).

  2. I love a book haul post :) I have The Year My Mother Came Back too and although I'm not very big on memoirs I think that one will be interesting. Enjoy your new books!

    1. Pictures of books are always fun to look at, aren't they? :) I like memoirs, but it depends upon the focus. Travel memoirs are my favorite. Mom memoirs, not so much. But, I'm still looking forward to The Year My Mother Came Back. Thanks, happy reading!
