Book Haul!

I have a tiny book haul today! Actually, I have a couple of books to mention from my last haul, too... Let's do those first!

As you can see, this is the trip where I bought Flowers For Algernon. Complete impulse buy but totally worth it! And I also picked up Forge Of Darkness by Steven Erikson... I don't know whether you can see in the image, but he's the guy who wrote the Malazan series. Epic fantasy, basically. We'll see how I like it! I think this is also the trip where I bought Written In Red by Anne Bishop, but I don't seem to have taken a picture. Anyway, if you want to know more you should check it out over here! She just so happens to be the author of one of my favourite series ever - The Black Jewels books - and I hope this one lives up to my expectations.

Now, moving on to today, the first book I got for a very specific purpose, and I'm going to be using it in a month... :D
Yes, I am going to London!!! I am going in April and I am so excited! I'll be travelling with a good friend of mine are we are starting (after some unavoidable delays) to make plans and things. I love history and I'm really looking forward to having a week to spend in this city!

Of course, it wouldn't be a trip to a bookstore without an unintentional purchase... But I just couldn't help it! There was a display in Chapters of 'fairy-tale' books, and this one just popped out at me! It's Little, Big by John Rowley. And it's gorgeous inside, too: 

I mean, I'm a sucker for things like that :D It's just so pretty.

And finally, this lovely:

American Dervish, by Ayad Akhtar. I'm going to be honest, I picked this up because it was $5.99. :P It looks interesting, though - seems to be a mixture of romance and religion, which should be interesting.

Hmm. It just occurred to me that I didn't check out Goodreads for either of these! They both could have horrible reviews, haha. But then, I used to pick out books based on my own thoughts all the time... :) Just covers and blurbs and that's it! No harm in seeing how my tastes lead me.

And that's what I picked up today! I do have some pictures to post for some books that caught my eye, though... I will post those later tonight or tomorrow :)
