Another book haul! I feel like I’ve actually been doing fairly well at buying books in 2014, though. I’ve only made two purchases from BookOutlet.com and two purchases from my local used bookstore. And less than 10 ebooks from Amazon. I’d say that’s doing pretty well!
During my most recent visit to my favorite local used bookstore, I came out a couple dollars poorer and seven books richer! And I couldn’t be more excited about the books I found. This is probably my favorite from that bookstore so far 🙂
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon
Uhh…how have I not read this book before? Pretty much almost all of my Goodreads friends have, apparently, yet I never joined the party. It wasn’t even really on my radar until I saw it in the bookstore. But I’m very intrigued after reading the synopsis!
A Great and Terrible Beauty & The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray
Yes, I now own books 1 and 3 in the Gemma Doyle trilogy, but not the second one. I’ll just have to keep my eye out for it next time I go. But I love historical fiction and I’m a fan of Libba Bray, so I’m really really excited about this series! I probably won’t have time to get to it for a while, but I think the covers are gorgeous and I’ve heard really good things about them 🙂
The Favored Child by Philippa Gregory
As many of you know, Philippa Gregory is one of my all-time favorite authors. I will read anything she writes; I think it’s all amazing. While this one doesn’t have stellar reviews on Goodreads, it’s the sequel to her book Wideacre that I read a few years back, so I’m excited to continue on with the series at some point.
White Cat by Holly Black
Is it just me, or does that model totally look like Chuck Bass? I’m really interested in this one! I’ve heard many many good things about it. I’m a little nervous since I was not a huge fan of her other book Coldest Girl in Coldtown, but I’m hoping that I’ll like this one more.
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
I’m so excited that I found this book! I’ve actually read it before, but it was years ago and I barely remember it, so I’d really like to re-read it and write a review for it at some point.
One Breath Away by Heather Gudenkauf
Have you read any of these? What did you think? What are some books you’ve bought recently?
