SO… I BOUGHT SOME BOOKS // February Haul

Greetings bookworms and welcome back to my bookish corner! I hope this week has been fabulous for you all. It’s been pretty hectic for me, as you can tell from my absence here on the blogosphere (or maybe you guys don’t notice at all… *sob*). BUT, ONE GREAT THING HAPPENED THIS WEEK (among the many other awesome things):

I WENT TO THE BOOKSTORE.

And what did I do there? Buy books, obviously. I had a $60 gift card for Dymocks Bookstore and on Tuesday, I couldn’t take it anymore – I NEEDED TO GET MY HANDS ON NEW BOOKS. So I trundled off with my best friend to the bookstore and walked out with three books! WOOOOOO. 

And now it’s time for me to show you said books!

PASSENGER BY ALEXANDRA BRACKEN

I keep hearing such good things about this book, I just could not contain myself when i saw this, in all it’s beauty, in the bookstore. I squealed a little bit in delight. Just a bit. If you don’t know what this book is about (which, by the way, would be ridiculous because this has been the buzz of the town for the entirety of January and February), it’s about a ships and time travel and searching for stolen items. Mixing ships at sea with time travelling sounds so dang cool, RIGHT?!

MORE THAN THIS BY PATRICK NESS

Yaaaas. Finally, I have acquired a new Patrick Ness book. Fast becoming my favourite author for his amazing writing and storytelling in A Monster Calls and the Chaos Walking trilogy, I’m excited to get into More Than This, which is another of his deep, contemporary novels. And just look at the BEAUTIFUL COVER. I’m all about covers you guys – I’m not shallow, I just appreciate an eye for good design.

THE WALLED CITY BY RYAN GRAUDIN

After blowing me away with Wolf by Wolf, I couldn’t NOT walk past this book in the bookstore. Not only does it sound so incredibly compelling, but I am also curious as to Ryan Graudin’s other works of fiction. Here’s what the blurb says, to entice you further:

There are three rules of survival in the Walled City. 

RUN FAST. TRUST NO ONE. 

ALWAYS CARRY YOUR KNIFE.

Right now, my life depends completely on the first. 

RUN, RUN, RUN.

There we have it! My small – but lovely – book haul for February. It’s such a sweet feeling to finally have bought books. I feel like I need to buy more… Eek, here comes the book-buying addiction! I hope you all enjoyed this haul. 

Have you read any of these books? If so, let me know what you thought of them!

  2. Ahhhh Josie, where have you beeeeeeennnnn? I literally feel like I haven’t talked to you in AGESSS. ❤ Omg, my friend, let this not happen again. XD
    But lovely haul you have here! Small, yess, but lovely books.
    Passenger, I think could've been better, but it wasn't bad. I think though maybe it's just a tad too overhyped?? I don't know. And More Than This was such a unique read! I've never read anything like it. Oooh yess I finished Wolf by Wolf recently, and I'm eager to read Graudin's other books too! I hope you enjoy The Walled City.

  3. I NOTICED YOU WERE ABSENT LATELY. The blogosphere has been a dark and lonely place without your presence, DOOON’T LEAVE US AGAIN. Ahem. Anyway. BOOKS!!! I love books. 😀 (Surprise, surprise.) And omg More Than This is amazing and I totally loved it, although it was slightly weird and confusing…but in a good way?! I can honestly say I’ve never read ANYTHING like it. xD And I want to read Walled City! But I also want to read Wolf by Wolf. 😛 OHHH AND PASSENGER IS GORGEOUS LOOKING, I HOPE IT’S AS GOOD AS THE HYPE PROMISES. :’)

    • AW CAIT YOU ARE SO SWEET, AGH LETS HAVE SOME CAKE TO CELEBRATE MY RESURGENCE. *hugs*
      Of course, we wouldn’t be here without our love for books, hehe.
      I like the strangeness and weirdness! I beside myself waiting in anticipation to read it! BUT, I’ve got to finish the Chaos Walking trilogy first.
      YOU NEED TO READ WOLF BY WOLF. And then read the Walled City. Or whichever way around to want to go.
      HAVE YOU READ PASSENGER YET?! I’m guessing not, right?!

    • Trisha, I’ll let you in on my thoughts of More Than This when I finish it – I’m sure I’ll be begging for you to read it!
      As for Passenger, I’m slightly hesitant too because it is so hyped, but hopefully it lives up to it! You never know until you try!
      EEK, THANK YOU TRISHA! 😀

  4. Welcome back, Josie! I know what you mean. I’ve been scheduling posts but haven’t really been present in the blogosphere to blog hop lately. ): AND SUCH BEAUTIFUL BOOKS! I love the covers of all these. And I can’t wait to see what you think of The Walled City. Fingers crossed it’ll be just as wonderful as Wolf by Wolf for you!

    • Thanks Summer! I’m glad to be back.
      Me too, I’ve been very absent with blog hopping *sigh*
      They’re such gorgeous covers, I must admit it was probably 50% of why I bought them… maybe 40% but you know.
      I hope The Walled City turns out great! I mean, it sounds VERY promising.

  5. These look amazing – they all have such pretty covers! I’ve heard SO MUCH about Passenger (but who hasn’t, really?), so I hope you enjoy it. You’ll have to let me know what you think, because I really want to read it! I haven’t read any Ryan Graudin books, but I really want to read both of their works. They both really interest me! 😀

    I hope you enjoy these books, Josie ♥

      Thank you Denise!

      I’ve got to read The Ask and the Answer soon, so I can read Monsters of Men straight after. I’m excited!
