Hello blog world!
I feel silly for posting anything since I’m so far behind on reading and it’s really disappointing, but I genuinely enjoy writing here even if I don’t do it as often as I’d like.
Last month I tried
REALLY hard to avoid buying too many books because I knew I wasn’t going to be able to read nearly as many as usual. However, my hands cannot be stopped when I see a book I want – they just grab and my body moves towards the checkout line. So, without further ado my small but lovely book haul:
About Grace by Anothony Doerr
(Ok – let me explain so I don’t sound like just a book hoarder. I got this book in October in paperback form out of luck at a thrift store. But I found the above copy in hardback and it’s so beautiful I wanted to cry so I had to purchase it. So, I am not a book hoarder (sort of) and I just genuinely wanted this beautiful copy. End of rant.)
The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen
The Elite by Keira Cass
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Sammy Keyes and the Hotel Thief by Wendelin Van Draanen
Sammy Keyes and the Sisters of Mercy by Wendelin Van Draanen
City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
Keeping Faith by Jodi Picoult
The Julius House by Charlaine Harris
Someone got me several of these books as gifts that they, too, found in a thrift store. This was the last Picoult book to finish my collection – I now have all her books, finally!!!!!!!!
Also – everyone raves about The Lunar Chronicles and Between Shades of Gray so I’m glad I at least got them on my shelves. Now, I just need to find a free moment to start reading them along with all of my other TBR books.
What did everyone else get last month? Any of these a favorite by any of you out there?!
