Every month I am surprised by the books I have bought and by now I really shouldn’t be. I think the problem is that as I buy the books I don’t realise just how much I am buying. That is until I am broke and staring at a pile of books that I do not have space for.
I picked up The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood at a second-hand bookstore because I want to read more adult Science Fiction and Dystopia. I also need some good extra reading in those genres if I want to write a really good long research essay.
I found The Exiled Queen by Cinda Chima Williams at a decent price. I had to buy it since it was the only copy and it was the matching cover I’d been wanting for a while. This is book two of The Seven Realms Trilogy. I really want to start this series soon. I’m hoping to read it during my semester break. However, that will only be the end of May. Studying and working is hard guys…
Then I picked up Me Before You by Jojo Moyes last month mainly because of all the hype, and the trailer looked really good. I also just want to broaden my reading because I don’t really read general fiction.
For Valentines Day, I received Creature Comforts by Trisha Ashley from Exclusive Books. I’m so glad I received a general fiction novel, as I said before I do want to broaden my reading.
Towards the end of the month when I began to feel the hole in my pocket I decided I would just browse the shelves at Bargain Book. You can imagine how that ended. I walked out of the shop with four books, although I am proud to say that I did not spend more than R150. I got The First Muslim by Lesley Hazleton, Fated by Alyson Noel, and Abandon and Underworld both by Meg Cabot. I quite keen on the Meg Cabot novels. I’ve never read anything by her that was not Princess Diaries so I’m pretty excited to see how she does as an Urban Fantasy author.
