Naturally, it being the day after Christmas and all, I received some books. And as I was going to put them on my bookshelves, I thought about you, dear reader.
I’m not certain if you really care all that much, but here’s my little Christmas book haul!
First up is as follows:
- Slasher Girls and Monster Boys by far too many people to list
I’ve been wanting to read this one for a good long while, but mostly because Leigh Bardugo!
Why is Leigh Bardugo so good at all of the writing?
- All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill
I honestly don’t know anything about this one, but I have heard all of the highest praises and I’m fairly intrigued.
- Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson
I began reading The Girl of Fire and Thorns (also by Rae Carson) a while back and I kind of loved it. Of course, I put it down for no good reason (why do I do these things to myself?!) but now I really want to read this one, the fickle reader I am.
- A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
V.E. Schwab is rumored to be an astounding eloquent book goddess that this world was miraculously blessed with. We’ll see, we’ll see.
- Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman
Scary girl masquerading as a boy. OF COURSE I’M GOING TO READ IT!
- A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
I’ve been wanting to read this book as long as it has been a book and I’ve gotten tired of you, dear reader, yelling at me to do so… Or maybe that was me. Never the matter! I have it now.
Seeming that it is, in fact, a book of mine now, it may very well take me a year or five to read it.
Plus, that cover is a holy mess of gorgeous and I’d love so much to sniff it.
…That’s normal, right?
- Vicious by V.E. Schwab
Once again, I feel I must witness the beloved Queen Schwab’s notorious reign.
Also, superheroes, guys!
- Inherit the Stars by Tessa Elwood
The girl on the cover seems sassy and has a nice-looking haircut. Kind of like Blue Sargent. I’m getting good vibes, I tell you.
As a little afterthought, the summary sounds pretty great.
- Sabriel by Garth Nix
I haven’t read high fantasy in a while and it seems that all of the readers who read all of the books enjoy this piece of literature immensely.
And as a little bonus, I also got this adorable little guy whom I adore very, very much.
He’s found that he fits right in on my bookshelves.
It’s kind of the greatest thing.
Well, that’s all for me on the bookish front.
Merry that-really-depressing-day-after-Christmas, dear reader! ❤
