After banning myself from buying books for several months due to several unforeseen circumstances (and also because I have so many already on my shelves yet to be read), the cravings became too much this last week, and I ordered a bunch of new books. All but one of these have arrived now, so I decided it’s time for a book haul post! Let me know if you have read/want to read any of these (many of these I have bought because of recommendations from other bloggers and readers).
The Night Circus I’ve actually borrowed off my Mum, which might be the first time this has ever happened (we have vastly different tastes in books usually). Miss Peregrine’s caught my attention just from the title and cover, let alone the idea behind it. And I have read a few really good reviews of Ready Player One and decided it was time to give it a go.
About Love is a collection of short stories by Anton Chekhov, who I have studied many times before but, bizarrely, I owned none of his books until now. The Midnight Palace is Zafon’s second book from nearly two decades ago, but has only recently been translated into English, which is great as he is one of my favourite writers. The Sense of an Ending was the 2011 Man Booker Prize winner, so I want to find out why.
All three of these are books by the hugely popular John Green, and all three I have read reviews of in other book blogs, so I wanted to find out what all the fuss is about!
Two more medieval history books. The first one, Medieval Intrigue, focuses on medieval conspiracies, which should be really interesting!
What books have you bought recently?
