Rarely do I ever leave the bookstore with just one book...or two. I remember all the books I want before buying them all in one trip to the bookstore, which is why all my bookstore trips end up being book hauls. That's what this post is about today. Another book haul, with more amazing and long-awaited books that I can't wait to read when Christmas rolls around! Wheeeee!
My True Love Gave To Me: The first time I knew of this book was from Ally Carter's website, on which I read a post announcing the release of this fabulous anthology! The Gallagher Girls is a series that I hold close to my heart so imagine how happy I was to hear that. Now I finally have it - as fabulous and Christmassy as it can be. This is one book that I will be snuggling up with on Christmas!
The Rosie Project: I actually mistook The Rosie Project for Love, Rosie in a TTT post and didn't realize my mistake until one or two months after. One of the worst mistakes I've ever made. (The TTT post is still up there if you hunt around for it on my blog.) DO YOU FEEL MY SHAME THROUGH THE COMPUTER SCREEN?!?!
*swallows* But I've been wanting The Rosie Project for a while and was approved for a review copy of The Rosie Effect so there's no avoiding it now. I'm reading the book!
Winger: Also a book that I need to start reading. Winger has always been an...interesting book in my mind. I've never seen anything like the cover. It's mysterious and intriguing. Plus, there a lot of good things being said about this book so I finally went and bought it.
The Dream Thieves and Blue Lily, Lily Blue: I can't believe how late I am to jump onto The Raven Cycle bandwagon of awesomeness and mystery. Admittedly, there were some things that I struggled to understand in The Raven Boys but it was a good kind of struggle. I like books that have me thinking and guessing about the plot, and The Raven Boys met my expectations. Now I need to move on to The Dream Thieves...and it seems like I keep saying that for every book I buy.
Clockwork Princess (the manga edition): The manga of Clockwork Prince was so wonderful I knew I had to get the manga of Clockwork Princess too ( I can't find Clockwork Angel! ). I liked how the characters were drawn in the graphic novel, every one of them was finely drawn and did the book justice. Now let me see if I can finish the manga in one day before I depart for my competition tomorrow.
Days of Blood and Starlight: YES, PEOPLE! I FINALLY HAVE DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT!...but not Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Don't look at me like that, ask my local bookstore what they were thinking - Oh yes, let's put out the second book in the trilogy but not the first! Certainly the readers are smart enough to understand what's going on without reading the first book!
Oh, how flattered I am.
Afterworlds: Afterworlds have been on my radar since BEA because the people that have been lucky enough to attend the event were recommending it like crazy! I didn't enjoy Uglies that much - it felt like Scott Westerfeld went a bit too overboard with the romance - but this book, it's huge. Unusually huge, for a paperback. I have a feeling that reading it is going to be a fun ride.
Kat is a voracious reader who enjoys nothing more than losing herself in a good book. Fantasy is definitely her cup of tea. She often complains about never having enough time to read and constantly struggles with keeping her TBR pile a considerably decent size. Read more or keep up with her bookish whims on Goodreads or bloglovin.
none at the moment!
