Can you even call books you got from the library a “haul”? I’m not sure, but I’ll do it anyway. 😀 Yesterday I ordered some books that I wanted to my local library, and picked them up a few hours ago. Man, there is nothing like a brand new, shiny book. But it makes me sad that I can’t keep these forever! Maybe I’m irrational. That or I like books. 🙂
Anyway, I got 6 books today. That might seem like a lot, especially considering the fact that I am already in the middle of a book. I don’t care.
Goodreads’ Description- “Emma and Dexter meet for the first time on the night of their graduation. Tomorrow they must go their separate ways. So where will they be on this one day next year? And the year after that? And every year that follows? Twenty years, two people, ONE DAY.”
One Day was inadvertently recommended to me by Chew Your Lipstick in her day 4 of the 30 day book challenge (a book that makes you cry). I say inadvertently because I don’t know her personally, I just read her post and knew I wanted to read this book. I also saw it at a local used bookstore, so I know if I love it I can buy it for cheap. I am almost always interested in books that have movies of them, so I’d be excited to see the movie after I read this.
This is similar to Phillipa Gregory’s other books in that she is writing again about the kings and queens of old England. This one in particular is about Queen Elizabeth, and her rise to power. I am interested in this one even more after reading The Other Queen- because it makes Elizabeth seem like a nasty person. Her point of view will be refreshing.
Those of you who have read my last few posts know I have wanted to read this book for a long time. I have already read a sample of it on my Kindle and fallen in love, so this is most likely the one I will read first.
The Princess of the Midnight Ball is a new version of The Twelve Dancing Princesses. If you haven’t read this, it is about a handsome man who has to rescue 12 princesses from a curse- every night they must enter an underground kingdom and dance the night away. I really enjoyed the original version as a little girl, and I look forward to reading this version. This was recommended to me by Cara, and it seems like we have similar tastes! I can’t wait! 🙂 Thanks, Cara!
This is another one of those werewolf series’. Unfortunately, I am a sucker for those. 🙂 These seem to be better than the other stereotypical sagas though. I think maybe because so many people dislike Twilight, they give all other romantic fantasy werewolf/vampire type books a bad rap. Yes, I realize these are meant for preteens, but after reading a chapter or two in target, I was hooked.
OK, so if you have read any of these books, comment and tell me what you think! I will hopefully review all of these once I am finished! Also, I LOVE recommendations, and as you can tell, most of the time I read what you recommend! So please tell me what you would suggest!
Spread the love, my fellow bookworms!!
