February has always been the month for book buying for me. Not only is it my birthday, but the month’s wages are significantly bigger, and I still have Christmas money leftover.
Yes, February is a good month.
And of course, what else am I going to do than buy books that I have no room for?
The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson: I read I’ll Give You The Sun and almost burst into tears at how beautiful it was. I had no idea that it wasn’t even Jandy Nelson’s first novel. I swiped up The Sky is Everywhere AS SOON AS I COULD.
Winter by Marissa Meyer: I have a bit of a weird relationship with The Lunar Chronicles. Sometimes, I’m enjoying it, sometimes it feels a little too young for me. Lots of blushing and squealing…I dunno. But, after meeting Winter in Cress, I knew I had to get the final installment.
A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab: I read Vicious and thought it was good fun. I read A Darker Shade of Magic and V.E. Schwab became one of my favourite authors. I saw AGOS in Waterstones before the release date and almost knocked over a display trying to grab for it.
More Than This by Patrick Ness: I’ve only read one Patrick Ness book and that was The Rest of Us Just Live Here, because I love reading about people who are a part of the ‘chosen one’ story, but aren’t actually the ‘chosen one’. People have told me this book is weird. I like weird.
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black: I read Black’s Curse Workers series first and loved it. Mafia and superpowers? Yes please! I then got my hands on The Darkest Part of the Forest and everything was beautiful. Surely, this book is the next step in a Holly Black addiction?
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard: This one was a complete stab in the dark. A lot of internet buzz, and witches. I like witches. Let’s see how this goes.
Soundless by Richelle Mead: I’ve only read Vampire Academy. I stopped because I could, not because I didn’t like it. I haven’t picked up the second and I’m not sure I will. But this one I saw on the shelf at work and it’s so small – let’s give Richelle Mead another go.
