I really shouldn't have a book haul today. I just have no willpower. Anyway, I actually went to the store thinking that I would pick up Anna Karenina
but ended up putting that off for now... It's such a big book, and I'm not sure whether I'll like it or not, so I decided that I'll borrow it or get it from Project Gutenberg.
That said, I have three books today! And two that caught my eye...
So anyone who has read previous posts of mine will know that I recently picked up Hollow City
by Ransom Riggs... And given how beautiful the second one was, I had to pick up the first, Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children
! Now I'll have a matched set, which makes me super happy.
Then I have this lovely copy of Little Women
. Now, I actually need to check at home to see if my grandmother still has her copy of this book, because it was quite old... But I wanted my own, and the cover of this one is quite gorgeous. Little Women
is one of my favourite books, and I adore the movie with Winona Ryder... Only thing I disagree with is how things went for Jo and Amy, but that's for another post. :P
The third book here may surprise some of you, because I have not read it...
Yes, that is One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
by Ken Kesey. Idk, somehow I just didn't end up reading this one! I guess I'm working on that list of 'classics everyone should read'. :P I hope to read this soon and post a review for you guys to check out.
Lastly, I have the two books I caught sight of in the store:
My foray into bookstores recently has reminded me of just how beautiful some books are. I mean... Look at this beauty! This is a collection of some of Austen's earliest works, and from what I can tell the book is meant to be a replica of an actual book out there, down to the cover and the pages inside. Seriously gorgeous, it has her handwriting and everything. If you know any Austen fanatics this would be a great choice, imo.
This is a book that I may pick up at some point in the future, but my goal was to not spend too
much today. Dreamwalker
is a book about dragons - if you couldn't tell by the cover - and not only did the cover catch my eye, but it sounded pretty interesting, too! Man, if I bought half the books in the bookstore that I wanted... Well. I wouldn't have any room in my apartment. :P
So that's all for today! I hope to have some reviews to post shortly. :)
