Book Haul/// Books of January 2019.


And here we are with my first batch of books hauled in 2019. 
January feels like it was so long away...funny how time works. 
I got all of these books in the second week of January and these were a great way to kickstart my New Year in terms of what I added to my bookshelves. 
I have already read 3 of these books and the rest I am sure to delve into soon. 

Let's see what I added to my shelves in January. 

First up, the book I wanted the minute I saw it! 
This book is seriously gorgeous. 
Inside and out. 

A thriller. 
I recently read something else by the same author and wanted to read more from her. 
My sister may read this one before I do. 

This book- We That Are Young- had been on my radar for most of 2018. 
I have heard only good things and so  after spending months on my Wishlist, I decided to start my year right and get it. 
It's a modern day retelling of King Lear and I can't wait to read it soon. Possibly in March. 

I have never read a Perumal Murugan book that I didn't like. And I am sure this one is bound to be no different. 

Now for two Children's Books that I read in January itself. 
I love reading simple, kid lit sometimes. It's a great way step into a world far uncomplicated than the one we inhabit. 
I enjoyed both of these books and am so glad I picked them up. 


We That Are Young by Preeti Taneja 
The Goat Thief by Perumal Murugan 
The Forest of Enchantments by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni 
Ahimsa by Surpiya Kelkar 
Black Eyed Susans by Julia Heaberlin 
Ten Heads for Tanuj by Priya Narayanan 

3/6 read and the rest will probably get read in the first half of 2019. 
One my book buying goals for 2019 is to buy books that I cannot wait to read. So far, I think,  I've done quite well on goal. 
It's the 13th of February and so far I haven't bought a single book in February :O 
What is life?! 
But I do have some books sitting on my Amazon Wishlist waiting to come home!
