Charity Shop Haul #5

I went into my local charity shop to get some books for my mum and brother to add as fun little presents for Sinterklaas (a bit like Christmas, but on 5 December and Sinterklaas comes is a bishop hailing from Spain, rather than a jolly man from Lapland – it’s odd, but the kids love it!). I won’t add those in here, as I am not keeping or reading those, but I bought my mum a collection of Agatha Christie”s Miss Marple stories in Dutch and my brother one of the Bourne books and The Da Vinci Code, also in Dutch.

Anyway, of course I could not resist having a look around for myself as well! And I ended up with a bigger pile than I meant to (as usual). All of the books bar one are in English.

So, I have added these books to my (already full) shelves:

The Memory Game (Nicci French)

Now, I have never read a Nicci French book, but a few of my friends absolitely adore them, so when I saw this one I decided to finally get one.

Wilde Rozen (Lulu Wang)

The sole dutch book. It’s a beautiful book that was sitting in front of others and looked like it had never been read and really wanted to be read! I don’t read enough novels set in Asia and this one is set in China by the looks of it.

Mansfield Park (Jane Austen)

I have all the Jane Austen books in a collected volume, but I like having them seperately as well and when I saw this one for 50 cents, I could not resist. It looks unread, poor thing.

Feed (M T Anderson)

Looks like a dystopian YA novel. It has won a prize or two, so felt it worth a try. I do not read enough YA and the synopsis sounds interesting.

The Penguin Book of Satirical Verse (various)

Just seemed like a fun sort of book to have on my shelf. Published in 1967 it is a little hardback that I guess does exactly what it says on the tin. A nice little find for dipping into every now and then.

The Mystery of the Blue Train (Agatha Christie)

I have been keen to find some Agatha Christie, but her books had eluded me so far in the second-hand book shops. I finally managed to find one! I have never heard of this one, but it’s a Poirot one. I am looking forward to reading it.

That’s it! That’s all my books. I spent a grand total of €3.80 on these books.
