2016’s ending soon, and what better ways to end it than to haul the books I bought during the most heartwarming month of the year? Okay, so to remind you all: I’m not a person who buys books on a regular monthly/weekly basis, so buying 3 in a month is really quite a huge deal for me. I love buying books and I adore them as much as the next bibliophile does, but I still can’t risk spending money on solid books (yet) for the time being due to quite a few personal reasons and I hope you guys understand that.
Enough rambling, though. Let’s jump into the first book I got for the month.
- Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
I got this book during the first few weeks before Christmas, and have heard so many great things from a serious amount of BookTubers that finished reading this duology. I was super tempted to buy the second book, “Crooked Kingdom” which also happens to be the conclusion of this series, but ended up not buying it because to tell you the truth, I was in some sort of a reading slob, which is some sort of a term for readers such as myself to not get in the mood for reading that lasts in an undesignated period of time. I promised myself to get the second book once I’m done reading the first one, so I better start reading soon.
The series is about a group of 6 people that joined together to execute a heist that would make them all rich beyond their wildest imaginations. I didn’t really wanna know much about this series because I was afraid to get spoilers that made me loose my mood into picking this up, I only know that this is another one of Leigh Bardugo’s well-written work that successfully made it through the hype. This book sounded so juicily adventurous so I really can’t wait to get my hands on it.
- Heartless by Marissa Meyer
This book has really been catching a lot of my attention lately, and I am so glad that I got a chance to finally own it. The author of this book is well-known for her previous series debut called “The Lunar Chronicles” that retells 4 well-known classics into a very interesting science fiction point of view. This book is her latest work, and it’s sort of also a retelling of Alice in Wonderland, but only focusing on the The Queen of Hearts way before she became her notorious self in Alice in Wonderland.
I think that it’s a very intriguing plot to start with, I have heard great reviews about it online so I think it’s safe to say that I have no regrets on buying this one.
- Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
The last book I got for the month is a genre I haven’t yet tried reading before in my life that is none other than historical fiction. I needed to begin reading more books with a variety of genres to exalt my reading standards and expand my reading in a whole new diverse way, so I think that this book is a great kick-start of doing so.
This book is about a young girl surviving throughout the World War II which took place in Lithuania. I heard that it really opens up the mind of readers to a whole new set of tragic events that involved the lives of thousands of people loss during that time. I just have to know more about this so I was indeed glad that I ended up buying it.
So that was the book haul to end my 2K16 year. I will link reviews down below if you’re interested in checking out the books I mentioned above, I hope you enjoyed this post!
