Book Haul 2022 #1

Hi folks!

I don’t buy many books as of late. Inflation is making books very expensive and I just don’t have the money anymore to buy tons and tons of new books every month. But I still do get some and I decided I would bring you my small book haul for the first half of this year, showing what books I’ve gotten and maybe where or how I’ve gotten them! Hope you will enjoy this post and without further ado, let’s see what books I’ve got in the first half of 2022.

For Christmas I got a voucher from my aunt so the first thing I did when I came back to Budapest in the new year was to go to the bookstore and spend that voucher on two books actually! These two books are: The Stone Sky by N. K. Jemisin and The Kingdom of Copper by S. A. Chakraborty. Actually I have read both of these books so I’m happy to report they are not sitting on my shelves unread!

Next up I actually swapped a book. If you read my unhaul post from 2 weeks ago, you probably have seen that I have swapped my copy of Nevernight by Jay Kristoff and the book I swapped it for was the Hungarian translated version of Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. And I can proudly say that this one has been read as well! So far I’m doing very good with the books I hauled this year right?

In my family we have a tradition (which most families don’t seem to have) that we give gifts to each other even on Easter as well. It’s usually not as big as Christmas gifts but still a small token of appreciation towards my family members. And this year I got another voucher from my aunt! So of course I went to spend it the moment I was back in Budapest. The book I spent it on is the last book in the Daevabad trilogy, The Empire of Gold by S. A. Chakraborty. If you read my wrap up from last month I also have finished reading this book as well!

The line of read books ends here as the next four books are fairly recent purchases and I have not had yet the time to start reading them. If you’ve been reading my blog for at least a year or two you probably know that there is this event called Book Week in Hungary, in which bookshops and publishers have stalls and sell books with at least 20% discount. So I like to make use of that and I did just that this year as well. I got 4 books from there; The Lady of the Lake by Andrzej Sapkowski, and 4 Hungarian books Játékok unatkozó felnőtteknek (Toys for Bored Adults), Húsevők ketrece (The Cage of Carnivores) and A lányok titkos élete (The Secret Lives of Girls) all by Gabriella Eld. I am hoping to get to all of these before the year ends.

And last but not least, I went to Paris this past weekend (from the 24th of June until the 26th, I may post a trip post later on about it) and I had a trip to Shakespeare and Company once more (I basically dragged the girls with me) and got myself a copy of The Unbroken by C. L. Clark. I have heard amazing things about this book so I’m definitely excited to get to it sooner than later!

Well, these are all the books I have gotten this year. I know it’s not a lot compared to how many books other bloggers or people in the community get but that’s all I am currently able to afford and I got them all with love and wanted to share them with you all! What are some books you were happy to get your hands on this year? Have you read them too? Let me know in the comments down below!
