We might be approximately a quarter into 2016 but there are still plenty of lovely books that haven’t yet been published and I am excited about them. These are the ones most likely to make me break my current rules about not buying new books, rules that are already occasionally bent by one of the following:
- but it’s on sale!
- but it’ll help with thesis writing!
- but it’s for book club!
I know, I am weak. At least it’s books and not, y’know, designer hand bags or something. I would need a much bigger apartment if it were designer hand bags, and a very well paid job.
Anyway, we’re getting off track here. Here are the books that I’m likely to pick up in the next 6 months, but even if I exercise extreme self control (shelf control?) I will just put on a wishlist so I don’t forget about them later.
