I’m driving back to school today, which means break is over. And, as you may have realized, I’ve become kind of book-obsessed this winter break. But I don’t think you realize how much.
I have 15 more books than I had 3 weeks ago.
It started on the day of my older sister’s shower. My Aunt recommended a really good local bookstore, so we decided to check it out on our way home.
I left with four books:
and Let it Snow
A few days later, my younger sister and I decided to visit Books a Million. Because why not? And I purchased three more books because there were surprisingly good sales that day:
Emma – a book I needed for school
Warm Bodies – a book that was on sale for five dollars!
and It’s Kind of a Funny Story – a book that I felt I needed. And I was right.
Then, on the weekend after Christmas, we drove down to Dayton to celebrate with my family. And what did my older sister get me for Christmas? The only thing I asked for, of course–books!
Let’s Pretend this Never Happened
and Gone with the Wind
I know, I had a major brain fart a week earlier and already bought Bossypants, even though I specifically told Caitlin that it was a book on my list. But, hey, it’s a great book. Having a spare copy isn’t the worst thing in the world.
Anyway, while in the Dayton area, my family decided to make a pit stop at a store called “Half Price Books.”
Oh my gosh, it was amazing. After spending fair chunks of my allowance at Books a Million and Barnes and Noble for all these years, I’ve learned how expensive reading can be.
But this. Store.
I left there with three movies (Baby Mama, American Pie, and Moulin Rouge) and five books for–wait for it…
The lucky picks were:
The Ex Files
and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
In conclusion, I am now fifteen books richer. The books that I’ve read have links to my reviews of them (It’s Kind of a Funny Story coming soon), and I’m currently working on Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. I don’t normally read two books at once, but I have my reasons in this particular situation (ones I’m not about to delve into right now).
But I have a question for anyone who’s made it this far. Have you read any of these? Which one should I start next? And what books should I add to my growing to-be-read shelf?
DON’T YOU JUST LOVE BOOKS?
