So I never really got the point of these book hauls. I mean, where’s the fun in looking at all the books someone else got? It’s not useful like a review — you’re not learning anything from it, just admiring someone else’s shiny books that you don’t get to read. Then I made this blog and now I understand.
It’s about bragging, right? The only thing better than looking at someone else’s books is bragging about your own and forcing other’s to look at them and be jealous (and to inspire conversation or something but it’s mostly the book envy) Am I right? Yes….? No…. Whatever! Point is, I’m doing my own!
This batch is a combination of books picked up from the library, used bookstores and bought new.
1. The Singer of All Songs – Kate Constable
2. On the Jellicoe Road – Melina Marchetta
3. Dark Triumph – Robin LaFevers
4. Forbidden #1 – Kimberley Griffiths Little
5. Cinder – Marissa Meyer
6. Where’d You Go Bernadette? –
7. Wonderbook: The Illustrated Guide to Creating Imaginative Fiction – Jeff Vandermeer
8: Saga, volume three (review for volumes 1&2 here) by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples
Just look at these beauts!
So, uh yeah. I guess that’s about it for this post. I’m crazy excited to read all of these, but I must say Cinder and Where’d You Go Bernadette? are my top ones, if only because of all the hype surrounding them (don’t let me down hype!) Once I get around to reading all of these, though, I’ll actually post some more reviews. Until then, I hope I made you sufficiently jealous of my lovely stash of books. Cause that’s the point of these things… right? Am I right?
…will someone please tell me?
