Book Haul/// Books of July 2018.


I am particularly excited to share this book haul. It has some seriously gorgeous books and books I didn't overthink and just got. I don't know about you, but I tend to sometimes agonise over book buying decisions. 
Do I really need this?
Will I read this right away? 

Sometimes it's just nice to let go and buy books without all the mental gymnastics. 
I bought these books on a rainy Friday evening. 
Most of these are from Kitab Khana and one is from The Kulture Shop. 
I spent sometime browsing the shelves and came home with these beauties. 

Let's see what I've added to my shelves lately. 

Look at this gorgeousness! 
I got this beautiful book from The Kulture Shop. It's Pinocchio but full of Patua art. 
The full page illustrations in this book are a visual treat. 
I can't wait to read this and stare at the art. 

I've already read this book in the last few days of July and while I did enjoy it, it was a little bit of a struggle. 
I have some mixed feelings which I will delve into properly during a review. 

I just, literally just finished reading this stunning book and really enjoyed it. 

This one is going to be my Bangladeshi read for my Indian Books in August. 
I am excited to read this. A re-imagining of a popular Bengali folk/myth tale. 

I read A Little Life when it came out and while it was by no means a perfect read. I did enjoy the writing and I am interested in reading another books by same author. 

Austen vibes in Pakistan, yes please! 
This one promises to be a fun read and I cannot wait to dive in.
Something else I intend to read this month. 

I have read some good reviews of this book and when I spotted it in Kitab Khana I grabbed it. I will be reading this soon enough. 

I honestly am in love with this gorgeous cover! 
A work of art. 
This book I am saving to read during Pujo. 
I am forever planning my reading months in advance!
