Books I Bought
I buy way too many books. I need help probably.
Author: Lauren Oliver
Title: A Monster Calls
Author: Patrick Ness
Title: This is Not a Test
Author: Courtney Summers
Behold the beauty of my books. I managed to get 'Delirium' second hand in perfect condition hardcover and I much prefer this cover to the other one I have seen of the girls face! The others were bought new from Amazon...thought I'd treat maself!
Title: Holmes 'L'ombre du doute'
Author: Cecil and Brunschwig
Title: Petit Fantome
Author: R. Badescu and C. Miyamoto
My boyfriend was in France last week, and he brought me back this French graphic novel of a Sherlock Holmes mystery! I love it- the art is gorgeous. Strangely enough, whilst online browsing Oxfam to get my second-hand book fix, I found another French book that I thought looked too adorable to ignore; 'Petit Fantome'.
Title: A Piece of Cake
Author: Cupcake Brown
Title: American Gods
Author: Neil Gaiman
Title: All My Friends Are Superheroes
Author: Andrew Kaufman
Again, three more Oxfam books! These are all books I have had my eye on for a while now and, as they were so cheap, I thought: why not!? I AM HELPING CHARITY GODDAMIT.
Titles: Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials
Author: James Dashner
In the UK, we have a discount book sop called 'The Works' where you have to browse through endless astronomy books and self-help books before finding any gems. I found these in there this week for under £1 and I did a little happy dance.
Title: Of Human Bondage
Author: W.Somerset Maugham
Title: The Little Friend
Author: Donna Tartt
After this whole 'Fifty Shades' milarky (which I haven't read btw), this book kind of sounds like the literary equivalent! It was written in the 1920's, and is about a submissive/dominant relationship.
The signed book is one I am very excited about. 'The Secret History' by Donna Tartt is one of my all-time favourite books and when I saw a signed copy of her second novel 'The Little Friend' for £10 on the Oxfam website I definitely thought that was a pretty awesome deal! My name is now David.
That is my naughty book binge-ing for another week!
