Here it goes. I’m about to expose myself as someone who spends way too much money on books. Anyone who says money can’t buy happiness has clearly never been to a bookstore before. So here are the books that I bought in March!
Here are the books that I got from Book Outlet:
- If They Come For Us by Fatimah Asghar
This is a collection of poetry by the co-creator of the web series Brown Girls. It details the experience of a Pakistani Muslim woman in modern America while exploring issues like identity, violence, and healing.
- Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi
This is about two characters who meet and swap numbers to stay in touch — via text —by sharing their deepest secrets, anxieties, and dreams without having to see each other in person.
- Sadie by Courtney Summers
I read this last year and am still haunted by the story. It tells the story of Sadie as she attempts find her sister’s killer. At the same time, West McCray is a radio personality who hears Sadie’s story and becomes obsessed with finding her. He starts his own podcast as he tracks down Sadie trying to figure out what happened to her. It’s a hard story to read, but it was spectacularly written. I’m happy to have this in my collection so I can lend it to people!
- Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
I think it’s finally time I branch out from rereading Pride and Prejudice. Marianne and Elinor are two sisters who are trying to find happiness and love while navigating a society obsessed with status and money. And isn’t the edition just to die for?
- Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson
I want to own every book that Swanson has written after I was completely blown away by The Kind Worth Killing. Since this book is a mystery/thriller, I don’t want to spoil myself by looking up a summary of it. But I do know it involves a woman as she gets caught up in voyeurism, manipulation, and murder.

Here are the books that I got from Indigo:
- The Island of Sea Women by Lisa See
I gave this 4/5 bubble teas, so click the link above to read my review!
- Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I gave this 5/5 bubble teas, so click the link above to read my review! Spoiler: This is currently in the running for my favourite read of 2019. I know, I know. It’s still so early in the year, but I’m completely enamoured by it.
- Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I’m on the hunt to own all of Jenkins Reid’s work! This one resembles the format of the movie Sliding Doors starring Gwyneth Paltrow. We see Hannah’s life unfold in two possible scenarios after she bumps into an ex. I, for one, am in love with this trope so I’m excited to see what Jenkins Reid does with it.
