If there’s one thing that I absolutely love posting about, aside from book reviews, are BOOK HAULS!
I love sharing with you all the stuff that I get from the mail, from people and my purchases at the local bookstore! There’s just something about it that I find very exciting, very thrilling 🙂 So before I start yapping, let’s go through the new books I’ve got since my last book haul.
Self- Editing for Fiction Writers
Did I tell you guys how much I wanted to be a writer. Well, I do. I really, really do. I’ve written a couple of fan fictions to start off with just to see how I would do. The first fan fiction that I’ve ever written (and my first one that I have ever completed) was Harry Potter based 🙂 . I’ve been looking for books such as this to help me improve and hopefully, launch my career as an an author. Am I currently working on a title of my own? No. Only because I have yet to take the board exam (NCLEX) for my nursing degree 🙂
I am totally open to any suggestions to other materials similar to this book 🙂
This book had found it’s way to me by accident. I found this in my mail instead of a copy of Writing Dialogues. Although I was disappointed at first for not receiving the items that I had originally wanted, I conducted my research on this book and everything had changed.
No Safety in Numbers
My brain has been going through a zombie craze/ action genre craze and my hand responded by picking up a copy of this book. My eyes read through the blurb and my brain felt satisfied. Still looking for a good zombie book.
This, along with Fire with Fire, Dark Eyes, The Innocents and Etiqutte Espionage were all on sale at my local bookstore for $5. What makes the deal even sweeter? The copies that I had picked up were all hardcover copies!!! Nothing excites me more than a hardcover copy! (Yeah, you’ll come to see that a lot of things excite me :)). Aside from this book being a total steal at the mall, I’ve always wanted to read the Hush, Hush series. My younger sister owns a copy of the first two books. I just thought I’d help her out in completing the series (now all we need is the third installment). Plus, I would love to own every single book of the series just in case I do fall in love with the series. I could just continue on reading, without having to anxiously wait til the next time I go to the bookstore to grab a copy.
Fire with Fire
I love Jenny Han! She is one of my favorite authors! I would absolutely love to get into this series- I just need the first book 🙂 (I grabbed this book from the $5 book sale table, thinking this was the first book to the series >.<‘ I had forgotten my phone that day so I couldn’t look it up on Goodreads).
I crave for espionage once in a while. The only book series that my mind has been wrapped around with lately has been the Alex Rider series. Thought that now would be a good time to mix it all up 🙂
Speaking of mixing it all up, this book has so many different features that are unique to the espionage sub- genres that I’ve read in the past. First off, we have a heroine :). Majority of the espionage books were centered around a hero. This time around, I want to see how a heroine-centered espionage book works out for me. Second, it’s a steampunk inspired book. I have yet to read a steampunk-ish book. I can’t wait to read this 🙂
Honestly, the cover was the first to grab my attention. After reading the blurb of this book, I was curious. Yes, it does have somewhat of a “Gossip Girl”- ish theme to it but hey, that series played out better than I had expected and I just thought that I’d give the same benefit of the doubt with this book 🙂
So there it is, my latest book haul. I really can’t wait to get started on one of these books 🙂 Be expecting a review on any of these books as they all look very promising. Also, I will also try to post up the reviews I do on Goodreads and, at most, Amazon 🙂 It’s the Christmas season and the house is just bustling everyday, wrapping gifts, decorating, and a lot and a lot of planning as my family usually hosts a Christmas party on the 24th. So please forgive me when I kind of disappear for awhile. I do receive notifications on my phone for those of you guys who would like to reach me through here 🙂
