November Book Haul

I know that there is still 13 days left of November but honestly, I am not planning on buying ANYMORE books because Christmas is right around the corner. Anyways, here are the books that I purchased this month!

Hammer of Thor By Rick Riordan – I wasn’t planning on purchasing Rick Riordan’s new book until December but I ended up finding it on sale so I just had to get it! I really enjoyed the plot and characters in the first book, Sword of Summer and excited to continue on with this Norse mythology filled world, because who doesn’t love mythology?

Silver Linings by Matthew Quick – I never really indented to buy this book but when I found it for less than a dollar I honestly couldn’t turn that down. I am glad that I bought this book because it deals with mental illness and it is important to have books about different struggles such as mental illness on your shelf. I also have heard great things about this novel and the movie so I am hoping to get to it sometime soon!

Night Film by Marisha Pessl – Again, I found this book for super cheap and I have heard good things about this mystery novel and even though I haven’t read much mystery I am really excited to try it out! This book is also very unique because it is told in multimedia formats which I love, and wish books had more of!

Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella – At the beginning of the month, I went to this awesome used book sale and scored a TON of books for cheap and this was one of them! I have heard about this book a lot on social media and also I have seen the movie around so I am happy to finally have my hands on it!

Across the Universe by Beth Revis – I also got this at the book sale, and even though I don’t really know what it is about, the cover was just really pretty…I do know that it is a sci-fi novel and after reading the back I got really excited to read it! I don’t know when I will get to it because of my growing TBR but hopefully I will get to it sometime next year.

Champion by Marie Lu – I have read this entire trilogy, but do not own any of the other books besides Champion now. Eventually I will collect the rest of the series but for now I could only find the last book for a decent price so… yeah. I really liked the Legend trilogy but I would have to say the last book is my least favourite but I am still happy to own it!

Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead – I think for the past 4 months I have been slowly collecting the Vampire Academy series and I finally found the 5th book at a used book store and I was so happy! Now I just need to keep an eye out for the final book and I will have the complete set. I adore the Vampire Academy series, it is fun, thrilling and amazing and cannot wait to give it a re read sometime soon.

A Novelist’s Commonplace Book by Michael Crawley – I always wanted to own a writing book rather than always boring them from the library, and I was super excited to finally have one…until I opened it up and realized it is mainly just a book about different verbs and techniques. I still find it helpful but it is more of a handbook than the craft type of book I was hoping for.

I bought so many books this month but I am pretty sure all 8 of them only cost me $20 altogether which is awesome. Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this blog post and don’t forget to check out my last one: Reading and Writing Goals!

  1. I have to agree with you on Champion. I liked the whole book series but the second book has to be my favorite and the third one, my least favorite. You should try and pick up Marie Lu’ book series The Young Elites now, if you haven’t read them. I think I like them more than the Legend series!
