The fifth month of the year is over and gone, and I’ve got some nice things to show you! This month was my birthday, and I got a discount code for Bol.com, and a VVV cheque which I could spend at several shops, including the Waterstones and American Book Centre in Amsterdam. So of course, I did. And then I went shopping with my mum. We went to Amstelveen (because that shopping mall was opened on Hemelvaart) and there I got three books (and a little pug).
Books bought, received
The Dalek Generation by Nicholas Briggs – A Doctor Who book about Daleks written by the man who voices the Daleks, the Cybermen and a lot of other creatures in the show. I HAD to take it with me!
Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake – Though I didn’t love Anna Dressed in Blood as much as I had hoped, I really wanted to read the second book in the series. When I got an email that I could get a discount on stuff at Bol.com, I went to look at the English book section (of course, what else); and I found this one. So I thought, why not?!
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas – I had heard a lot of good thing about this series on Goodreads and from different bloggers, so when I saw it at the Waterstones, I decided to bring it with me. The summary sounds promising, and I can’t wait to get started in it!
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead – I had tried to read it before, but couldn’t get any further in it, it might have had to do with the fact that I had an ebook (I do prefer physical covers with some books). A couple of weeks ago, I watched the movie and thought it wasn’t very good. It made me think (or actually hope) that the book was a lot better. Though it’s about vampires, a mythical creature I kind of despise, I am very curious for this series.
30 Second Mythology by Robert A. Segal – Kind of like the J.R.R. Tolkien in 30 seconds books, but this time it’s about (Greek/Roman) Mythology. I’d been looking at a lot of Mythology books when we went shopping, but I could only find stuff about Greek and/or Roman Mythology. It’s such a shame that Norse Mythology isn’t more popular! But I am still very curious about this book!
Sudoku puzzle book – We were at this little bookshop that sells books and DVD’s and other stuff for really cheap, and my mum (who’s a Swedish puzzle freak) had these two large books. I am personally more of a Crossword/Sudoku person, so I took this one with me.
Also I wanted to show off the new plushie I got. It’s a little pug! Isn’t it adorable?! I saw it at a shop when I was with my mum, and I fell in love with it right away! It still needs a name though… Any suggestions?
To Know Me by Marcy Blesy – I found this freebie on Amazon, and I thought both the summary and cover were awesome; so I thought why not.
Edgewood by Karen McQuestion – According to Goodreads, this is a science fiction book, so I am very excited for it! It was also an Amazon freebie!
