Hoarders, Books Edition: Episode 167

Knife Edge by Malorie Blackman | Checkmate by Malorie Blackman | Guitar Notes by Mary Amato | Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A. S. King | The Carbon Diaries by Saci Lloyd | This is How it Ends by Jen Nadol


On Saturday, I finally decided to check out our library – specifically, I wanted to check out if they had any books for sale. Well, apparently, they always do. So for one hour, I went through their selections and found all six of these books for a bargain price of $5.80 (including taxes). Oh, how sweet it is! Technically, I could’ve gotten more because it’s $5/bag. So if you’re able to fill your bag with 20 books, you’re only paying $5 regardless. But I chose not to be greedy and only picked out the ones that I thought were interesting. 

I’ve managed to complete my Noughts and Crosses trilogy by Malorie Blackman. And since I’ve not read a single A.S. King book, finding Vera Dietz amongst the stacks was a great find. Guitar Notes is rated highly on Goodreads, while The Carbon Diaries and This is How it Ends look to be those type of books that will require a bit more patience and understanding. I’m so excited to read these!

ON READING

Well, this past week was certainly a change from my previous weeks. Thank goodness! I managed to read 3 books and have written reviews for them:

  • THE GAP OF TIME by Jeannette Winterson was awesome.
  • THE LIAR by Nora Roberts was a hefty book that could’ve used a lot of trimming. It was unnecessarily long.
  • MIDNIGHT SUN by Jø Nesbo was a good follow up to his Blood on Snow series (however lacking).

ON BLOGGING

I know, I know. I only managed to write one review last week (The Gap of Time). But I promise that I’m back with a few reviews and a Confessions next week. I was still able to visit you, though, so that’s great, yeah?

HAVE A LOVELY WEEK!
