November Book Haul

I can’t believe that it’s already December. Few more days to go before the holiday and the most awaited holiday in my country, Christmas! I’m excited for the holiday because I have a very reasonable excuse to spend money and buy more books for myself. But unlike the past month, the month of November is a good hauling month. Not only did I bought fewer books than those impulsive book hauls but I bought some books on my priority list!

 

So here is my November Book Haul!

Books I am Thankful of…

Hello, everyone! I haven’t blog for quite some time but I have seen a post that has been circulating around blogs and youtube accounts and I found it fun so I decided to do it. This week is Thanksgiving week in some parts of the world, mostly in the US. However, in our country, we do not celebrate such holiday. I’ve been seeing bookTubers and some bloggers mentioned the top 5 books that they are thankful of. Even though we do not have a thanksgiving day or week I still want to blog about the books that I am thankful of because come on, books are so much more than words on paper.
I tried to narrow down these books in 5 and I find it easier than expected. I’ll be posting the synopsis of each book so that you could have an idea of the story if you haven’t read it yet. However, most of these books in the list are series but I’ll be posting the synopsis of the first book of the series.

Publisher:Β Simon Pulse (Simon and Schuster)

Published:Β June 26, 2012

“The act of reading is a partnership. The author builds a house, but the reader makes it a home.”

SYNOPSIS:

Delilah is a bit of a loner who prefers spending her time in the school library with her head in a bookβ€”one book in particular. Between the Lines may be a fairy tale, but it feels real. Prince Oliver is brave, adventurous, and loving. He really speaks to Delilah.

And then one day Oliver actually speaks to her. Turns out, Oliver is more than a one-dimensional storybook prince. He’s a restless teen who feels trapped by his literary existence and hates that his entire life is predetermined. He’s sure there’s more for him out there in the real world, and Delilah might just be his key to freedom.

A romantic and charming story, this companion novel to Off the Page will make every reader believe in the fantastical power of fairy tales.

October Book Haul & Wrap-up

October is over. And it is time for another monthly book haul and wrap-up. I only read 3 books this month but I accumulated a lot of books. This month is a good book hoarding month but a not so good reading month because of my slump.

Let’s proceed to the wrap-up first! I read good books this month.

πŸŽƒ My True Love is Blue – πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ—πŸŒ‘

I find this book whimsical in its own way. The way art is incorporated and how the story revolves around grief and moving forward adds another touch to the plot as a whole. The book is short yet I feel like it offered different genre, from dark fiction to mystery. I like it and highly recommend it to those who love a quick read, loves art or just fascinated by how the painting was put into words.

πŸŽƒ The Girl in 6E – πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ‘πŸŒ‘

This book is not what I expected it to be. It did not meet my expectation, although the pace of the story is fast and there is something about the ending of every chapter that keeps you from reading the next chapter. Still, it’s a bit disappointing considering all the hype that it receives before.

πŸŽƒ First Heist – πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ‘

I enjoyed this novella of the Omar Zagouri Thriller. I’m more attached to the character in this novella rather than the novel that I read from previous months. The characters really showcased their personality in this novella.


And now for the books that I accumulated this month. I’ll be dividing this book into two, brand new books and second-hand books.

“No one is normal. Everyone is just pretending to be normal.”

Β

SYNOPSIS:

I haven’t touched a human in three years. That seems like it would be a difficult task, but it’s not. Not anymore, thanks to the internet.

I am, quite possibly, the most popular recluse ever. Not many shut-ins have a 200-member fan club, a bank account in the seven-figure range, and hundreds of men lining up to pay for undivided attention.

They get satisfaction, I get a distraction. Their secret desires are nothing compared to why I hide… my lust for blood, my love of death.

Taking their money is easy. Keeping all these secrets… one is bound to escape.

What if you hid yourself away because all you could think of was killing? And what if one girl’s life depending on you venturing into society?
