So recently it was my birthday, and I acquired some books from friends and family. I’m so so happy about all of them, and I know I’ll read them all with joy!
Also, as my birthday has come and gone, my book buying ban is no longer in existence!! I kinda failed three times, but that’s okay. I’ll still try and show restraint in what I buy though.
The first book I was given was this wonderful edition of Sherlock Holmes from a lovely friend! It’s got all the stories in there, all of which I grew up with and love. I’m rereading them now, and I have so so so much nostalgia attached to them – help!!
The second book I was given was the hardback of Throne of Glass, by Sarah J Maas. I’ve read it before, but I enjoyed it, and my little paperback version is puny in comparison to this gorgeous hardback! It was a complete surprise to be given this, but I’m really really glad I was 🙂
My family knows how much I love Illuminae and Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, and so they kindly gave the books to me! I am so thankful because these are perhaps my favourite YA novels e v e r. They’re just so good! I’m making myself wait at least a month before I reread them (as I read them two months ago) but I am so so excited to do so! Eeeep I love these books.
A friend gave me a Dymocks voucher, and so when I went to the shops the other day I just popped into the bookshop to see what I could find. I came out with this book, Allegedly, which I have heard very very good things about – and this book, The Pearl Thief, which I have also heard very very good things about. I’m very excited to read both of them!
Those are all the books I was given/bought for my birthday – and I’m very happy and thankful for all of them!
I try not to buy books too often, just because I’m trying to save that money ehe. But I do love getting new books, particularly ones that I haven’t read before!
Have you bought any new books recently?
