What’s Miscellaneous Today?
Early Fall Book Haul — Oct 2015
No book spine poetry this time around either, BUT HOW DID I HAUL TWO PARCELS WITHIN A WEEK LOLOLOLOL.
One of those “I’d like to read this but lol when can I read this?”. Also Brothers Grimm influenced so why the heck not?!
My “I need to find some more road-trip books to see if it’s just me that can’t do road-trips or if it was just one bad story”. Plus, all you guys fucking hype and shit. And kabloomy — I had to get it.
A continuation of book one. Considering this book is set in a city an hour away from where I reside, yes, I must read it.
Hype meets disappointment in many opinions I’ve seen but since when has that ever stopped me? I still stand by my claim that this book sounds like a YA verison of the Coherence film.
…This is actually the Schwab title that I wanted to read first prior to ADSOM but I could never find it on hardback for cheap (not to mention I prefer the UK paperback design a lot more). But considering that this title is sold online for crazy amounts, I figured why not…no, actually, THANK THE DISCOUNT GODS!
An “I do want to read it but I can wait” purchase. If you remember, this is one of those titles I put on one of my old seasonal TBRs on the basis of the premise. Months later: I has it!
I was surprised when I saw this on Book Outlet as I imagine this was a pretty hyped series. Retrospectively, I feel like I bought it because of hype than truly wanting to read it LOL. Damnit.
I’mma just say that the original price for this book explodes wallets ($31 CAD) so I’ve been waiting it out. And the wait is over (but what is this nonsense of him publishing the entire series within the span of a year. That’s crazy fast!)
As the inspiration for A Monster Calls, I just had to find myself a book by Dowd. That’s more than enough reason.
Oh my god I need someone to take my credit card away because I’m legit hounding Book Outlet every morning before I sleep because certain books have <5 in stock and it just means I have to order, right?
I may or may not have more parcels coming…
