Lireal // Across The Wall // The Bronze Horseman // Remember Me? // Inferno
I went to a second hand book sale today and usually when I go to this particular shop they don’t really have anything I would want to read but this time they did! The first two books I picked up were books 2 and 3.5 of the Abhorsen series by Garth Nix because Little Book Owl was raving about the series, I don’t have book one but I’m sure I’ll borrow it from the library or get it from another second hand book store at some point.
I also picked up Remember Me and Inferno at the same shop. I have yet to actually finish a Sophie Kinsella novel but I know that once I actually start her novels I will really enjoy them! I also have yet to finish a Dan Brown novel but I am trying to collect all his books before I actually start them!
I recently went on a classics binge. I’ve been wanting to try and improve my vocabulary and writing structure so I thought I should pick up classics. I picked up Of Mice and Men in May so I could annotate it for my english class, which paid off because I got an amazing mark (not gonna lie I’m so proud of myself because I worked probably too hard on that unit).
The other three I bought because I’ve heard amazing things about them and Treasure Island and The Secret Garden are both reasonably short and good for me to read between classes.
These three novels are all a bit of a blast to the past for me. When I was younger I was obsessed with Alex Rider, so when I heard about Anthony Horowitz having published an 11th book I was very confused but also extremely excited. I am currently re-reading the series but as soon as I get up to date I’ll be picking this one up!
Last year I also picked up the Skulduggery Pleasant series and I thought it was finally over and I was so proud of myself and then this… Another book, WHY. I don’t think I’ll be picking this up too soon but I definitely plan to get to it in the end of the year or early on next year.
I also picked up the Hufflepuff edition of the Philosopher’s Stone, I really love it. I got the hardcover edition because the paperback is so bright it hurts my eyeballs.
Last May we had Comic Book Day (An event I am totally saving up for next year because the sales hurt my wallet) and it was only the second year I had participated. I went into the city with one of my brothers, I was prepared for the onslaught of people in the comic book store, I had my comfy shoes on and was ready to fight. If you hadn’t already guesses I am a comic reader.
Anyway, so when we got to the comic shop it was packed but we managed to get a stack of free issues and then I noticed the crazy sales. I only got two comics because I had promised to take my brother to the arcade later but damn, I am totally binge-saving for Comic day next year, because I could have easily spent $100 on comics in the space of two seconds that day.
Way back in May I (that’s how long it takes me to build up my book stacks) I bought a new POP (no surprise there!) and if you follow me on Instagram you would have seen a sneak peak. I love him and I can’t wait to add more pops to my SW collection over the next few years!
He glows in the dark! I’ve always wanted to have a Yoda POP but haven’t really liked any of them so when I saw this one I got really excited. I don’t know why (he kinda freaks my mum out) but I just really love him!
As a late birthday present my mum got me a new beast POP, he’s adorable help me!
What books have you bought lately? Do you collect POPS?
