Book Haul #1: November 2015
O.K, I know I haven’t posted in ages but…I was in a reading slump! I know, I know, terrible, but it’s true and I am finally able to come clean. But this month it was my birthday and I got a lot of book tokens so went on a day of shopping, FOR BOOKS!!!
So this is my first ever book haul for November. Enjoy!
So these are the books I bought this month (click on the title of each books for a link to goodreads:
This book is like a biography of Magnus’ Life up to the end of Heavenly Fire. I have been waiting for this book to come out for ages and have finally gotten it. I know they were released as e-book copies but I am not keen on using e-readers. Plus, I managed to get one of the limited edition Hardback copies with exclusive content of Magnus Bane’s Voice-mail. Writing this, I have already read half the book and look forward to continuing my journey through Magnus’ Life.
I know this book has been out for a while and has won two Carnegie medals. For some reason I never really looked at it but recently I did and I thought it sounded amazing. I then went on to read the first chapter of it and decided to buy it straight away. It is part of the Chaos Walking series and I look forward to reading it in the Christmas holidays in around 4 weeks time.
Wow. I bought this book on the first of November and finished it on the first of November. It was amazing and I thoroughly recommend reading it. It is so well written and I loved it. But… I don’t think I’ll ever finish the series. I think it would have worked better as a single, stand alone book but I guess that’s just my opinion.
I read the first book after watching the movie *horrified gasp*. Anyway I loved it and now have the second book to read. Some people have told me that the sequel is -meh- but I might as well try it if I enjoyed the first book so much.
Don’t ask why I have this book and not The Death Cure. In a moment of hurry and panic for the waterstones closing for the day, I rushed in and picked up Scorch Trials and what I thought to be The Death Cure, but as you can see, it wasn’t. Hopefully I will enjoy Scorch Trials so that I read the next book and etc… but who knows? We’ll see…
I have read the first book and I swear it finished way too soon. They are making a second series of its TV adaptation but I know the TV show is very different and am scared it might give away stuff because I’ve heard it moves much faster. Anyway I enjoyed the 100 and am now going to read the next book some time in the holidays.
Honestly, this book was just bought for school for my GCSE English Literature. I will read it before hand as it is quite famous and well spoken of but I’m not sure, it isn’t a genre or time/era I usually read so who knows?
This was also bought for my GCSE English Literature and I am planning to read it before hand but even though I think Of Mice and Men might surprise me, I do not feel the same way for an Inspector Calls.
