#BookHaul: February 2017

Hey wonderful people, with the end of the month fast approaching, it’s that time again! Let’s take a look at the books I’ve hauled this month!

Purged by Peter Laws


Matt Hunter lost his faith a long time ago. Formerly a minister, now a professor of sociology, he’s writing a book that debunks the Christian faith while assisting the police with religiously motivated crimes.

#BookHaul: January 2017

Can you believe it’s almost the end of January already!? A new year calls for a new blog feature, so I’ve decided to add in a monthly post of all the books that came through my door during the month. If you’ve read any of the titles, maybe you can help me prioritise my TBR! And if you discover any titles of interest, I take no responsibility for you adding books to your reading list 😀

Review Copies:

I received some highly anticipated titles this month and I’m so grateful to publishers/authors for the review copies.

But when she finds a suicide note, written in her handwriting, she begins to question everything. She has no memory of writing it – so who did? And if someone tried to kill her once, what’s to say they won’t try again . . .
