It’s been a while since I posted one of these! I don’t normally buy books in bulk, especially considering how jobless I was until last month. I also mainly only buy books at used book sales because I’m cheap, lol. But I had a 25% off coupon for DiscoverBooks.com, and I had to find some way to celebrate my new job, so I bought a bunch of books I’ve been wanting for a while!
So let’s talk about these bad boys.
Lost Boy: The True Story of Captain Hook
I heard about this book from a fellow blogger (though I can’t remember who it was now…), and it sounds amazing! It’s a dark retelling of Peter Pan, told from the point of view of the villain (Captain Hook). My FAVORITE kind of retelling! I just finished this author’s Alice in Wonderland retelling, Alice, and I really enjoyed it, but I can’t imagine how much I’m going to love this book since I already love anything to do with Peter Pan. I can’t wait!
I’ve been wanting to read a Carrie Fisher book for so long now, but of course, so has everyone else in the world, so I just never came across one. Luckily DiscoverBooks had a few available! One of my friends recommended Shockaholic as my first Fisher read, and once I learned that she talks a lot about her electroconvulsive therapy in this one, I was in! I was a psych major, so anything to do with that stuff fascinates me. I started reading this book today, and it’s a pretty small book, so I should have a review up soon!
Catching Fire and Mockingjay
FINALLY. Most of you already know how obsessed I was with The Hunger Games a few weeks ago. I already had the first book, but I’ve been having to wait for the other two cause I was hella broke, but now I have them!!! My current plan is to finish Shockaholic, then read Lost Boy, then move on to these two. I’m super excited to get back into the Hunger Games world!
The Night Circus
I’ve heard so much about this book all over the bookstagram and book blogging communities, and I’ve been wanting it for so long! I almost forgot about it when I was adding books to my cart. I’m excited to finally read it!
I was originally planning on getting NOS4A2 for my first Joe Hill novel, but alas, DiscoverBooks didn’t have it in stock, and my coupon was about to expire. I’ve heard this book is good, though, and it’s his debut novel! Hopefully I’ll get a chance to read this one soon.
