Hey everyone! Before I left in my vacation I visited a couple used bookstores in my area and aquired a few books to add to my shelves! So here is a pre-Christmas book haul!
The first book is the Queen’s Own Fool by Philippa Gregory. I’ve never read a book by her but I really want to try them out and see how I like them! I’m noticing I’m getting books I never figured I’d read or didn’t seem to interest me previously but now suddenly are! This is one of them! If you’ve read any of her books let me know in the comments how you liked them!
Up next I got Velvet by Temple West, and I don’t know anything about it, only that I really loved the cover so I bought it…it was like 5$ so I couldn’t pass it up! I’m sorry!
Next two are by the same author and they are The Rose Garden and The Shadowy Horse by Susanna Kearsley. I have the Winter Sea by her but have never read it so I’m hoping I enjoy these. I’ve heard really good things about her works so I’m really thinking I’ll enjoy these!
The next two are also by the same author and they are The Perfect Play and Playing to Win by Jaci Burton. I’m really getting into new adult and adult romance so I’m so glad I found these! I again haven’t read a book by her but I’ve heard her books are hot and steamy so we shall see!
The next book is City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare in the U.K. paperback. I read this from the library at the beginning of the year and really liked it so I decided to get a copy for myself. Her Mortal Instruments books are hit and miss with me so I really don’t know how I feel about the series yet. I haven’t read past the second so I guess I’ll eventually see how I feel about her books. The first was boring to me but the second I really enjoyed! I have a long way to go though before I read Lady Midnight.
Up next is Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire. I think this is the companion novel or sequel to Beautiful Disaster. This book is really out of my comfort zone so I’m a bit nervous to read this series but I’m trying to push myself to read books I don’t normally go for and try them out. I want to read it so I hope I get to it in the next couple months.
I then bought Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. I’ve read books by Rachel but never by David; although I did read Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, and to be honest I wasn’t crazy about it. I’m hoping this book is better! The sequel just came out so I wanna get to that soon once I’m done with this one!
Second to last is Soulless by Gail Carriger. I jut recently got two of her Finishing School series books which will be in a different haul, but again I’ve never read her work so I’m hoping this will be really good, along with the other series I started collecting!
Lastly is Something Borrowed by Emily Griffin. Now this book is really out of my comfort zone. Mainly because I’ve been so into my Young Adult books that I just haven’t felt the need to explore outside of that. And I told myself that I didn’t think I would ever read them but I decided that since I found it for a dollar might as well give it a chance! I’ve heard from others that they love her work so let’s see what I think of it! I’ll definitely keep you all updated on that!
Let me know in the comments what books you’ve gotten recently or for Christmas as I would love to know!
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!
