Hi friends! I’m back with another tiny book haul! Or…at least I thought it was tiny. Turns out my last book haul was in February, so I didn’t include a single NetGalley book. Luckily, I’ve given myself the power to make the executive decision to only include the two I haven’t read yet. You know, I wanted to do great things in life but the only thing I might end up being known for is my own chaotic unpredictability! Yay! With that being said, let’s jump right into it!
I now own the entire Twilight series (all bought used/secondhand) so I can finally commence a reread of the first two and a first read of the last two. I am so ready for Meyer’s infamous extraordinary writing. Hahaha, I laugh.
Yeah, so, maybe it was a bad idea to look around at a used bookstore after last week’s Top 10 Tuesday. Call me weak but…yeah no I’m definitely weak.
Yes, I actually bought a classic! It’s not this pretty of an edition but it is a 50 cent paperback. I can invest in a more appealing edition later on. Also, this gives me Jane Eyre vibes and I am so excited!
They’ll Never Catch Us by Jessica Goodman | I might not have adored They Wish They Were Us but there was a lot of potential in it. I’m really excited to see what the author does with her sophomore novel! This seems to be relatively character-focused, since it follows two sisters making friends with the new girl…and then the new girl disappears. This sounds like it’ll be a great mystery-thriller!
Curses by Lish McBride | Yes, another Beauty and the Beast retelling. But it’s gender-freaking-bent. Also the guy who’s “Beauty”? Yeah, he’s a con-artist who just so happens to be using his skills to help the “Beast” find her match. This sounds like it’ll be the perfect mix of fairy-tale magic and unique storytelling! Plus, Marissa Meyer blurbed it, and we all know how I feel about that.
So that’s it! Share with me your thoughts on any of these books, or a book you recently hauled!
