Book hauls, Sunday post

June stats fever! And Sunday post #13

So actually, I am as aware as you are about how I did with my reading this month. I’m going to find out! I’m linking up with the usual crew for the Sunday meme at Kimba’s book blog, to make this a Sunday post as well.


So I’m not doing that bad with my stats then! Having read 10 books in June (3 less than in May), I’m barely keeping my head above the water in terms of the GR challenge (and slightly late as well), but I’m sure I can catch up later. Doing alright with Mount TBR, and… it could be better with Blogger Shame. I’ll have to hit those old ARCs next month.

I’ve posted 14 times in June. Here’s a recap if you’ve missed any of the posts, I’m not including Sunday posts.

After Many Years Ghost Towns of New Jersey Darlings of Dress Darlings of Dress

I don’t feel like going in too much detail about these, as I’ve told you about most of them throughout the month during book hauls. But I will talk about the last four, because I don’t think I’ve mentioned them, and they are actually loads of fun! So After Many Years are short stories, lost and recently found by people, written by L.C. Montgomery, author of Anne of Green Gables! So all you Anne fans should go and buy it here. And the last three are unbelievably beautiful books by Schiffer Publishing – they’re both a book and a photo album! Ghost Towns of New Jersey is a lovely travel guide, whether you’re traveling from the couch, or in reality – it’s got stories and wonderful photos for the first option, and actual tips, hours and booking info for the second one. You can buy it hereDarlings of Dress is a similar kind of book, full of beautiful pictures of clothes up from the Victorian times. It’s exquisite! You can buy it here. And Cincinnati Cemeteries is dedicated to old cemeteries, with photos as well, and it tells eerie legends of those places! You can grab it here. By buying from Book Depository from these links, you are supporting my blog. I thank Schiffer publishing and Edelweiss for a chance to read these darlings.
