April HMV Book Haul

HMV Book Haul

It may not be a big haul. But I spent a lot of time dwelling over what I wanted to buy in the book section of HMV recently. 

Not only are they predominantly 2 for £6 but also the staff informed me that they get new deliveries all the time, so now I'm going to have to visit more often - as not everything is stocked online with HMV and I just love going and looking through the shelves. I always feel like I pick up books that I might scroll past online and miss!

HMV Book Haul Requiem for a Dream Hubert Selby Jr

Requiem for a Dream by Hubert Selby Jr.

The film may be a cult classic but I'll be honest I didn't even know it was a novel. So when I spotted this on the shelf I had to pick it up. 

The novel follows four New Yorkers as their addictions cause their lives to spiral out of control. Following the descent and impact of the life that happens under the immersion pressure of the American dream and expectations. 

HMV Book Haul Quiet by Susan Cain

Quiet by Susan Cain 

I have had Susan Cain's Quiet on my wishlist for a long time so when I saw it in the deal I had to pick it up. 

The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking brings the focus back to those who are often overlooked. In a world of short attention spans and the loudest getting heard it is about time that we sought out the strengths of introverts and how we can use our naturally quieter selves to our advantage. 

It's time to listen instead of waiting to speak. 

HMV Book Haul Carol by Patricia Highsmith

Carol by Patricia Highsmith

Originally published with the title The Price of Salt - Carol by Patricia Highsmith is noted to be one of her only novels to have a conventional happy ending. 

Carol is known to be an anxious and addictive love story with the backdrop of fifties New York. Defying lesbian stereotypes common in 1950s for widespread notability. 

Following Therese, working in a department store as she meets the alluring Carol  -  both shocked and unprepared for their love and what they could stand to lose. 

HMV Book Haul The Craft by John Dickie

The Craft by John Dickie

John Dickie's The Craft - How the Freemasons Made the Modern World was the second non-fiction book I picked up in HMV. 

I really do not know that much about the Freemasons, so this piqued my interest in coverage of the movement's history, influence and traditions that bring membership the world over.
