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:
1. The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan and Maureen Johnson
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.
2. The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
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.
3. The Magicians Guild by Trudi Canavan
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.
4. The Scorch Trials by James Dashner
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.
5. The Kill Order by James Dashner
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…
6. Day 21 by Kass Morgan
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.
7. Of Mice and Men by John Steinback
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?
8. The Inspector Calls and Other Plays by JB Priestly
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.
