Stacking the Shelves: July Book Haul

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Each week bloggers post the books they purchased or received.

The first two weeks of July I went to Spain, and I loved it! I visited Girona, a beautiful city which you might know because it is the setting of Game of Thrones. I found a lovely second-hand English bookstore in Girona and couldn't resist buying two books:

1. The Humans by Matt Haig

This book was in perfect condition!

2. Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

I've wanted to read this book for so long! Now I'm glad I finally picked it up!

Back in Belgium, I received a discount and ordered the following two books:

3. The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani

4. The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Each week bloggers post their top ten on a previously suggested topic. This week's topic is ten books you'd buy right this second if someone handed you a fully loaded gift card.

1. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (Harry Potter #8) by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, Jack Thorne

2. The Rose & the Dagger (The Wrath and the Dawn #2) by Renee Ahdieh

I'm currently reading The Wrath and the Dawn and I am really enjoying it, even though I feel a bit slumpy.

3. And I Darken (The Conquerors Saga #1) by Kiersten White

4. Walk on Earth a Stranger (The Gold Seer Trilogy #1) by Rae Carson

I really want to read my first Rae Carson book this year, let's hope it works out that way!

5. You by Caroline Kepnes

6. The Trouble With Women by Jacky Fleming

7. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (Oz #1) by L. Frank Baum

I still haven't read this classic and I have no excuse, so I'll need to right that mistake :)

8. The Improbability of Love by Hannah Mary Rothschild

9. Traitor's Blade (Greatcoats #1) by Sebastien de Castell

10. Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle #1) by Jay Kristoff 

Even though this novel has some mixed reviews, I still really want to read it!
