For some reason I thought I had bought a lot more books in December but apparently not. Last month I bought a total of ten books.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
I vaguely remember reading Cinder in early 2015. I cannot recall whether or not I enjoyed it but I’ve read so many good reviews about the series so I thought I might as well give it another try and bought the first three books, Cinder, Scarlet and Cress.
This is the second book in the Infernal Devices Trilogy. I started Clockwork Angel a while ago but got distracted by another book. I want to get to this series soon because I enjoyed what I have read so far and I am honestly a bit puzzled about why I bumped it back. Plus it’s the old cover so it was cheaper so it was easy to sneak it into my order without it burning a hole in my pocket.
I haven’t read any of this guys books so I thought I should give it a try. This particular novel is about a young author named Darcy who sells her novel “Afterworlds” to a New York Publisher. Darcy puts her studies on hold to pursue this dream and is thrust into the literary world. And that was enough to convince me to buy it.
So I read Fangirl and enjoyed it but by the time I got to the end I felt a little bit disappointed. I’m not entirely sure whether that was because I didn’t want the book to end or because I felt like nothing happened. If you’ve read Fangirl tell me what you think in the comment section below.
I also got Carry On, which I am yet to read. I’m starting to regret buying it because right now I am not even sure I want to read it. I think I might be the only one who did not enjoy the excerpts in the Fangirl. I think it’s because it reminds me of a Harry Potter spin-off. To me Harry Potter is sacred man…
THIS BOOK IS AMAZING! I need to write that review soon. Seriously my favourite book of 2015.
I was so glad to find this book especially since the publisher closed its door and it should have been recalled from the bookstore. But low and behold, there was chilling on the shelf. It was meant to be. Cristy Zinn is a local author who writes speculative fiction for children. I’m hoping to get through this book this month.
The movie trailer looks epic so I thought I might as well read the book before I watch the movie. It’s a little bit out of my comfort zone but so was Illuminae and I loved it. So some more SF for my bookshelf.
I think I can comfortably say that when it comes to book buying I’ve reached a place where I am satisfied. I don’t feel like I have to catch up any more, right now the only books I’ll be buying are new releases and even then I’ll probs wait until the paperback is released.
I know that January’s book haul will most likely be big because I need to buy quite a few classics for campus, plus it’s my birthday on the 30th and there is at least 2 new releases I want to buy. But thereafter I think I’m gonna chill on the book buying a little bit.
What books have you bought or gotten in December? And what books do you recommend for my birthday wishlist?
