I am living in a province, there was no bookstore near me, and when I knew about Pandayan Bookshop, I don’t have the capability to buy books, or even to save money for it. I am now a college student and it is still taking me months to buy a book because of a lot of important expenses than to spend my remaining money to spoil my bookish desire whenever I want to! So ever single book means a lot to me because I really saved hard for it. Literally! Haha.
Introducing: My Very First Book Haul!
The first novels I bought on the month of June are pre loved except the one from a local writer, these are:
- The September Girls by Maureen Lee
- Brute Force by Andy McNab
- Habang Wala Pa Sila by Juan Miguel Severo
I’ve read the The September Girls after I bought it, it is a story of mostly betrayals so you really want to destroy each character when they commit unreasonable decisions and understadings. I am really frustrated about this book that I want to dive in it and wake up every character for their wrong decisions which is a good thing because for me, this book is made for you to actually feel what I feel.
I’ve read a few chapters of Brute Force and I don’t have the heart to continue it because it is a thriller! It makes my heart pound really hard when something happens so I am scared to read it just yet.
I’ve been eyeing for Habang Wala Pa Sila by Juan Miguel Severo, a local book of poems, because all the lines from his poems are giving me the feels that even though I don’t have a broken heart, I can actually feel the pain of every line. So when I saw the book, I bought it without having second thoughts! The waiting I’ve done is all worth it!
On the month of August, I bought 1 novel and 2 english pocket books, they are all pre-loved too:
- City of Bones and Chasing the Dime (2 books in one) by Michael Connelly
- Surviving Sam by Karen Rivers
- The Carousel by Rosamunde Pitcher
City of Bones was all about an investigation and little love story. I am nearly done with it! Obviously, I still haven’t read Chasing the Dime but it really seems that it is so thrilling.
Surviving Sam was a story within you’ll have your heartboken at the very beginning. And that was just a preview. I haven’t read it too haha.
I’ve read The Carousel, it was actually a nice story so I’ll rate it 3 stars.
My TBR list is growing and I am struggling on how to cope up because school works are piling up.
My last list: I’ve bought 2 books, 6 books in total was given to me and 1 book was a birthday gift!
- Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
- Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Book 2: Hollow City by Ransom Riggs
- Madison K Series by Nina Kaplan
- Booty Bones by Caroline Haynes
- One for Sorrow, Two for Joy by Clive Woodall
- Elves of Zeoch: The Last Two by Kaden Hurley
- Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is good, I must say, but the flow of the story is actually slow. I rated it 3 stars.
I haven’t got the third book of the series so I am actually waiting for thgat before I read Hollow City.
Madison K Series! I’ve got it from Ate Jasmine from @jasminepearlreads on twitter. I am really thankful for it!
Numbers 4-6 I haven’t got the time to read those, I don’t know why but, I am halfway through One For Sorrow, Two For Joy. I like it actually.
Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda! This book! I really love it! I posted my review of this book, kindly check it out!
How is your year round haul guys?
