Hi, everyone! I’m back with another book mail. These arrived along with the other books that I posted before but decided to post them separately because I bought them separately, too. Haha! It just so happened that I had them shipped to my boyfriend’s place and he had it delivered to me all at the same time.
To be honest, I think I’ve bought so many books this year than I ever did in my whole life. The quarantine keeps me feeling anxious and overthinking most of the time and my only escape is online shopping and looking forward to my parcels arriving. Most of my purchases are books (some skincare, of course, but only if I run out of stocks); books keep me so preoccupied which help me avoid overthinking. So without further adieu, here are the titles for this haul:
- Stalking Jack the Ripper (Stalking Jack the Ripper, #1) by Kerri Maniscalco
- One of Us is Lying (One of Us is Lying, #1) by Karen M. MacManus
Okay, so here’s the thing. I’ve seen Stalking Jack the Ripper around booktube years ago and have wanted to get a copy ever since because the story and plot sounds really good. I’ve been checking my local bookstores for this book for a while now and it’s always out of stock. I think I saw a copy available once but the cover is damaged, so I didn’t buy it. Anyway, I’m so happy that I finally got a copy! I just have to wait for the other books in the series to be back in stock so I can purchase them as well. I can’t wait to dive into this series because I’ve heard a lot of really good things about it.
The other book that I got for the other hand is another book that I’ve been seeing around the web a lot, though it’s not really on my list of to-reads before because I’m not into the mystery/thriller genre then. If you’re a regular reader of this little space of mine, you’ll probably notice that I’ve discovered my liking for the said genre after reading The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas, The Girl On the Train by Paula Hawkins, and just last week, I finished reading Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. So I am really excited to start this duology by Karen M. McManus!
What about you? Have you discovered a new genre recently? What are your most recent haul?
