TSS - Books That Followed Me Home - July Edition

It's been a while since I've done one of these, book have been following me home still of course, but I haven't had the time to sit down and write a post. At the moment I'm avoiding a backlog of book reviews and a whole lot of household chores. So I thought I'd show the books that have followed me home so far this month. Some books even managed to jump into my ereaders all by them selves.


Quite a few Ebooks have followed me home lately. One even managed to jump into my Kobo while sitting in a Starbucks, attached to a Chapters. But I do have some great looking reads that came to me. I'll say it again, I love the print book, but having an ereader and ebooks have been wonderful!

The Hunter and the Hunted - Kelley Armstrong
The Sea-Folk - Frank Delaney
Heart's Desire (SG-1 20) - Amy Griswold
Living Dead in Dallas - Charlaine Harris

Deafening - Frances Itani
The Hundred Thousand Kindoms - N. K. Jemisin 
The Broken Kingdoms - N. K. Jemisin
The Kingdom of the Gods - N.K. Jemisin

The Killing Moon - N. K. Jemisin
The Shadow Sun - N. K. Jemisin
Daughters Who Walk the Path - Yejide Kilanko
Firebird - Mercedes Lackey 

The Soldiers Song - Alan Monaghan
Elantris - Brandon Sanderson


I almost bought a collection of modern British short stories, er sorry it almost followed me home.... but I couldn't decide between the two Elizabeth Hay books. I also need to hunt down an Irish Country Christmas, as I have books 1,2,4,5 in the series.

Small Change - Elizabeth Hay
A Student of Weather - Elizabeth Hay
Irish Country Girl - Patrick Taylor

  1. Wowza - such an amazing book haul! Of course I want to read all the N.K. Jemisin you mentioned - I actually read Kingdom of the Gods and it was great! And ooh, Kelley Armstrong too - another favorite author of mine. Thanks for sharing all these goodies :-)

    1. Kelley Armstrong is a big favourite of mine. I'm almost caught up in the Women of the Other World series. Jemisin's books have been catching my eye for a while, such stunning covers, so I finally nabbed my self some copies.

  2. A lot of great books here, and the N.K. Jemisin books sound and look fantastic! I see you also got another Stargate book, which I just know will make your day! Nice new additions. I hope that you enjoy them all!

    1. I hope the stargate book will make my day! The Stargate book I'm reading now is painful to get through. I love the covers for the Jemisin books, the only shame is they are ebooks, so I can't hold them in my hands and stare at them!

  3. Good thing you didn't choose between those Hay works: they're both great, just different. I haven't read on in the Jemisin series yet, but I loved the fist book...very engaging. (E-readers? You have more than one? I'm curious...)

    1. The Hay books look good. I've read two of her other books, loved one, the other was just meh for me. Ereaders was somewhat of a typo. I do have both the Kobo and iPad - and the iPad has a few different ereader apps, (I get both Kindle and Kobo books now). But mainly a typo1
