July Book Haul

Hello everyone!

I’m currently in Spain with my parents and my brother having some well deserved rest. I wanted to share with you, once again, the books I bought this past month. So the thing is… Since I was starting my internship at the beginning of July, I actually thought I wasn’t going to have time to go buy books and I was pretty happy to save that money. How silly of me to have thought that… I actually don’t remember the last time I bought this many books. Anyhow, I’ve pretty happy with all the books I bought and I’m actually going through them pretty quickly now that I have days filled with doing nothing but what I please (which mainly includes reading, by the way).

June Book Haul

Hello everyone!

I hope you’re all great! I started my summer internship yesterday and, even though I’ve only been there two days, I’m liking it more than I thought I would so far. Let’s see how it goes from here…

Anyway, today I bring you the list of books I bought last month. Continue reading

May Book Haul

Hello!!

It’s been a while since I last published something but it’s the end of the semester so I haven’t had much time these past couple of weeks. I turned twenty-two on the 27th, so there’s that (22 by Taylor Swift might or not be my go to song at the moment…).

Anyway, I was going through the books I bought in May, thinking I’d only bought like two or three when I realised I bought quite a few so I decided to once again share them here.

  • Cassandra Clare – Lady Midnight

After reading The Mortal Instruments series, I’d been wanting to start this one for a while. I still haven’t but I’ve bought the book, which is a start…

  • Paula Pimenta – A Princesa Adormecida (I guess in english it would translate to Sleeping Princess)

The author is Brazilian so I really don’t know if it has been translated to any other languages other than Portuguese (I actually think the book was translated from the Portuguese spoken in Brazil to the one spoken in Portugal because I read it and it didn’t seem from Brazil at all). Anyway, it’s a shame if this book isn’t translated to any other language because I loved it so much! It’s such a good book! It’s about a princess that has to move away to another country (Portugal, actually) because she’s in danger and she lives with her uncles and they don’t let her have much freedom just to protect her, but then one day she decides to go out without them knowing and she meets a boy and things get complicated. But you know, it’s a very light book to read and it’s quite addicting. I was finished with it like four hours after I started reading it to be honest….

  • Rex Stout – Black Orchids

Well, I actually got this book for free. It’s from an old collection of crime and mystery short novels and there’s was this campaign at the book store that if you bought one of the new books from that collection, you’d get one of the old ones so that’s what I did.

  • Ellery Queen – Halfway House

This was the book I bought from the collection to get the last one for free. Plus, it was really cheap as well!

  • Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler – The Future Of Us

I bought this one mainly because it’s from the same writer as Thirteen Reasons Why, but it also seemed a very interesting book.

  • Haruki Murakami – Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World

I actually didn’t buy this one. It was a birthday gift from my cousins and their girlfriends, since they all know I love books so much. It’s a bit different from what I normally ready and they knew that when they bought it, but they thought it was good from me to read other type of books and I honestly can’t wait to read it, because it seems quite intriguing.

 

So yeah, this was what I had for today. I have a couple more post planned so I hope that I have time for them. Don’t forget to tell me if you’ve read any of these books and what you thought about them.

Until next time,

Jo xx

April Book Haul

Hello everyone!

I’ve had a really busy couple of weeks! Academic week in my university has just started and I’m really excited about it! I just got home (it’s 4 a.m. here) but I really wanted to make this post (I’ve wanted to for a while).

So, as you might or might not know, I’m quite the book lover and in April I ended up buying quite a few books. Continue reading

September Book Haul

Hello everyone!

On my first day back at university I went to the mall after my lectures and ended up buying a couple of books, mainly because I was stressed and anxious and buying books always seems to help me calm down (I don’t know… it’s weird but it’s true) but also because they seemed to be quite cool.
