I've been really good lately at not buying too many books. I feel like I put a fairly large dent in my TBR pile in the last few months and since I had a 15% off coupon at Half Price Books, I decided to treat myself.
Ham on Rye, Charles Bukowski: This will be my first Bukowski and word has it, it's one of his best. "From a harrowingly cheerless childhood in Germany through acne-riddled high school years and his adolescent discoveries of alcohol, women, and the Los Angeles Public Library's collection of D. H. Lawrence, "Ham on Rye" offers a crude, brutal, and savagely funny portrait of an outcast's coming-of-age during the desperate days of the Great Depression."
The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath, edited by Karen Kukil: I've had my eye on this one for awhile and I'm so happy to have found it at Half Price Books for $9.98. A steal!
A Reliable Wife, Robert Goolrick: This one was in the super buys section, so I paid $3 for it. I've seen it around but couldn't remember whether or not got favorable reviews. After a quick look on goodreads, it doesn't look like a lot of people liked it, but I'm still willing to give it a shot.
Armageddon in Retrospect, Kurt Vonnegut: A collection of Vonnegut's unpublished writing published posthumously.
Before you Suffocate Your Own Fool Self, Danielle Evans: I'm not going to lie, I bought this collection of short stories purely because the title is freaking awesome. I had to give it a shot.
