Books. BOOKS. BOOOKSSS.
There’s just soooo many I want and soooo many to buy. Unfortunately, that also means I require tons of money, which I sadly don’t have.
But, I just had to get a couple of books at least so this month I bought 11. That’s an achievement, trust me, I limited myself and held back on my urges.
As to not bore you I’ll keep the description of the books short (the first book in series may only be described) but reviews will slowly follow. And I mean slowly… (blame college).
Note: some prices may differ due to sales etc.
The Wolves of Mercy Falls Trilogy by Maggie Stiefvater
This set was the first set of books I purchased at only £8 from The Works; a UK based retailer, however they have got an online store. (Link at the end of the page)
This trilogy is essentially about Wolves (duh!) and explores the love between Sam and Grace. Sam isn’t a normal boy – as the cold surfaces, his transformation leads him among a pack of wolves. Shiver (the first story) counts down on what could in actual fact be Sam and Graces’ only summer together.
Note: a fourth stand-alone sequel has been released.
Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness
After reading The Rest of Us Just Live Here and absolutely loving the book entirely, I had to purchase other books from Patrick Ness. From reading one book by him, I can say that his writing is enticing and captivating. The Rest of Us Just Live Here explored real issues and struggles, which I was able to relate to my own life.
