Hello, book lovers! How are you doing today?
In this post, I’m going to be sharing with you the books that I bought in the month of November!
It is a KNOWN FACT that it is so hard for us book lovers to resist the strong urge to buy books.
True to form, although I tried to keep my book buying in check and stick to my budget, I ended up buying A LOT.
Enough of my yakking, let’s take a look at the books that I bought in November 🙂
Rather than enumerating the titles that I bought, let me show you what my Kindle app on PC looks like.
Yup. I downloaded all those 18 books. But these are all free. Thanks, Amazon! 😀
Now, let’s move on to physical books that I got.
Commonwealth had been on my radar for quite some time but Jay’s post gave me the final push – his post reminded me of this book which I had totally forgotten about and prompted me to buy it. (Yes, I blame you for that! – just saying)
Speaking of James, I also got a paperback copy of his debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter. Seriously, guys. This book is such a beauty!! Not only is the story gripping and captivating, the cover… it will definitely solicit oohs and aahs when you actually have it in your hands. Yes, I’m obsessed with it (#sorrynotsorry).
Every time I run into emotional, passionate book reviews where my fellow bloggers vehemently gush about the books they love, I always go like I have to read them. My most anticipated read here is November 9 by Colleen Hoover. I read her last book It Ends With Us last year and she literally broke my heart to bits. I think she has a way with writing compelling, effusive raw stories and I am really looking forward to picking that up!
(Oh, by the way, I DNF’d Coraline by Neil Gaiman… it just didn’t click with me.)
Since I still have quite a lot of backlog of holiday reads from last year, I managed to rein in buying them and cap the number at 4 books.
That said though, I’m meeting up with my bookish friend at Kinokuniya Bookstore in Fukuoka next Sunday (December 10th), I will be most likely to buy SOME… at least, I’ve already had my eye on A Christmas Carol Penguin English Library Edition and I’m determined to buy it if I can find it in stock. Isn’t this just pretty??? I gotta have this on my shelf… ❤
That’s it for today.
What books have you got lately?
Let me know in the comments and I’ll talk to you all again soon 🙂
