Alright, I know I set a book buying ban for myself, but these ones are justified: these ones are for Books on the Nightstand’s Summer Book Bingo, so really, it’s just business. That, and I had wanted to read these for a long time, and they were there so . . .
Anyways, if you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t but would like to, click here) you will have seen a picture of my little haul two days ago because I was so excited about them, but I thought I should also document my haul here.
First up is White Teeth by Zadie Smith. I first heard about this book on the blog 101 Books. It sounded amazing, and an increidble debut novel to boot, so I thought it would be a good one to do for a novel that is more than 500 pages long, or a novel with just words on the cover (harder to find than you think).
The next book is YouTuber Zoella’s first novel Girl Online. I have read plenty of reviews of this book, along with a few rumors about how a ghostwriter may have been involved, but nevertheless I still wanted to read it and see what it was about, and get all prepped so that when the sequel is released, I will be prepared.
The last item I bought I counted as one book to make myself feel better about my book buying binge, but really it’s four. You may not know this about me, but I absolutely love book sets. I like being able to get a whole bunch of books by an author at once, and preferably in paperback without movie covers. I have read Looking for Alaska but, regrettably, I have not read the other three: The Fault in Our Stars (shameful, I know), Paper Towns, and An Abundance of Katherines. At least now I own them so they’re available to me at anytime. I am hoping to make at least one of them work for the summer book bingo, and I want to read Paper Towns before the movie comes out and I start seeing Cara Delevingne and Nat Wolff in place of my imaginary versions of the characters.
So yeah, that’s my little book haul. I hope you are all enjoying your Fridays, and have splendid, summery weekends 🙂 🙂
