I acquired a total of six books this month thanks to sales and my unexpected online pre-ordering of a book due to an invitation of a signed bookplate. Truthfully, I also didn’t expect I’d be buying a book this month, much less that I’d get six because I have classes going on, and I wanted to focus on that purely, but I guess you can never go wrong with wanting and buying a book or two if that’s what really makes you happy. I promised myself that I would only read them if I had the time, and so far, it’s been pretty good for me.
The first book I bought (well, pre-ordered) was November 9 by Colleen Hoover. A signed bookplate came along with it and who wouldn’t say yes to that? Also, Colleen has eased her way into my auto-buy and auto-read list when I first read Maybe Someday earlier this year, so I know this book will again provide a roller coaster of feels for me to enjoy and cry over at the same time.
The next books on this haul would all be coming from Fully Booked’s 20% off sale.
The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare
As I delve more into Cassandra Clare’s world, it is a necessity to know Magnus’ stories before we met him in The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices. *spreads glitter everywhere*
The Young Elites and The Rose Society by Marie Lu
Marie Lu has easily eased her way into my auto-buy author list after I read her magnificent Legend trilogy back in January, and since then, I have been planning to buy The Young Elites but never actually gotten to the point of buying it. The release of The Rose Society somehow acted as a catalyst for me to finally purchase the books and read the magnificent series.
The Wrath and the Dawn by Reńee Ahdieh
I discovered this book through booktube and ever since, I have wanted to get my hands on a copy of this for myself. The very unusual plot has intrigued me and it’s also interesting that this is a retelling of a classic fairy tale.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
I have long known Leigh Bardugo as a great author but I never really had the chance to read the Grisha trilogy just yet, and knowing that this book is set in the same world, without actually requiring me to read the three books, has intrigued me. Add the fact that it has a really gorgeous cover. But no worries, I will still be reading Grisha when I get the chance in 2016.
So yeah, those are all the books I’ve acquired last month, and I am hoping that December would also be a good book buying month for me. I also believe that I didn’t make wrong choices on the books I bought since I have heard really good things about them. ‘Til my next haul!
