The Murder at the Vicarage Agatha Christie, Small Great Things Jodi Picoult Juniper Lemon's Happiness Index Julia Israel A Court of Mist and Fury Sarah J Maas Shadow and Bone Leigh Bardugo Harry Potter and the Philospher's Stone Slytherin 20th Anniversary Edition J.K. Rowling Second Chance Summer Morgan Matson Beatlebone Kevin Barry The Roanoke Girls Amy Engels books

From the top down

-The Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie. I bought this in Charlie Byrne’s in Galway

-Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult. It’s actually my sister’s book but it’ll be mine until I read it!

-Juniper Lemon’s Happiness Index by Julia Israel. I kept hearing about this book so when it was announced as the offical book for the BookTubeAThon I decided to pick it up

-A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas. I had owned the first book in this series, A Court of Thorns and Roses, as an ebook for ages and when I finally got around to reading it in July, I had to go buy this one so I could keep reading!

-Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. I got this in the little free books box at one of the local libraries.

-Harry Potter and the Philopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling. This is the 20th anniversary Slytherin paperback edition, HAD to have it!

-Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson. Charity shop buy

-Beatlebone by Kevin Barry. This was on offer at Eason’s for a few euro.

-The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel. A friend gave me this ARC edition of the book

-Dear Ijeawele by Chimamanda Nygozi Adichie

-A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan. I saw Books and Pieces talk about this and when it was on offer I decided to get it and give it a chance.

All these were free books on Amazon or iBooks. There were other free ones that I didn’t get, I picked these as I’ve either read the author before or heard good things.

Audio Books

audible fiction

-Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare. This was a free download on Audible

-Prudence and Imprudence by Gail Carriger. Books 1 and 2 in The Custard Protocol. I liked listening to the Parasol Protectorate so much that I decided to get these as audiobooks as well

audible nonfiction

-Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly. I’ve yet to see the film but I thought I might listen to the book

-Shrill by Lindy West. I have a feeling this one will crack me up!

-The Professor and the Madman by Simon Winchester

-The Butterly Effect by Jon Ronson. Free Audible short and I do love Jon Ronson

Phew! Quite a list, I need to keep on top of things and not wait 9 months or so to do a book purchases post. If you’ve read any of these I’d love to know
