I swear May 2022 has been the month i’ve bought the most books ever! I don’t normally buy THIS many books! The first part didn’t actually quite cover the first half because I expected to buy less in the second half … oops. Anyway, on with the books!
I got most, if not all, of these via sales! The Bone House involves a disabled character. The (Un)Popular Vote has a transgender character. Ghost Story i’ve read via Libby and loved. Also, it wouldn’t process after I bought it so I had to talk to audible help. They were really nice. I ended up getting a refund and a $10 credit so I could buy it again (it was a 24 hour $5 flash sale and refunds aren’t processed that quickly) and it worked.
I read And the Trees Crept In via Netgalley years ago and really enjoyed it. The Cat Who Saved Books, cats AND books, what could be better?! Robbergirl is a lesbian Robin Hood retelling. I read Coraline years ago via Scribd and really enjoyed it.
Smashwords. Free and cheap. What? I’m stocking up on taboo reads for Taboo Thursday ok? Not that I don’t have a ton of things I could read for that already that I haven’t read yet … Well some of it’s taboo, not all of it. And of course the The Trans Case Against Queer Theory because i’m trans and I believe I got Conscience through signing up for some email newsletter thing.
Again, I got a lot of these, if not all of them, free and cheap because of various reasons! Free and cheap is going to be the death of me. Acoustics is a transgender M/M romance!
I have not read this and this is infamous apparently.
I got many of these from thriftbooks and a few from a used book store really cheap! I Can’t Believe I Slept With You is a Yuri (F/F) Manga. Frankenstein, well we already know i’m obsessed. Same with The Little Mermaid now. How to Identify Yourself With a Wound is queer and poetry. I got Bag of Bones, The Party, and The Scarlett Letter really cheap at a used book store near me, and then I had to get The Dance and The Graduation on thriftbooks since they are out of print so I could make sure I had the full trilogy, also got those really cheap.
To Be Devoured I read years ago on KU and loved it, and it’s going out of print in July so I had to snatch up a physical copy! It’s queer horror. The Non-binary Book of Joy was a pre-order from B&N that arrived a bit damaged. Bent, crinkled, scuffed, but it’s still in one piece and readable so I said to hell with it i’ll keep it. It came via UPS.
Have you read any of these? What did you get in the month of May? Part 1 is Here.
