USA MASSIVE BOOK HAUL!!!!
So as some of you may know I've been in the US for the past six weeks, visiting family and working at an AWESOME camp!
One of the main differences between the US and here in Europe is that here, we don't have a lot of second hand book stores. So when I was in the states, I kinda went crazy, and just kept getting books. Sadly though I mostly got first books in series, in case I wasn't a fan of the series. Now I realize that I probably should have grabbed the next books of, for example, the Iron Fey series.... Oh well! So here are all 19 books I got while I was on vacation! :D
The Martian, by Andy Weir
This has been on my TBR basically since its' been published. It's basically about this guy who gets abandoned on Mars, because his co-space-explorers think he died in a storm.
I love sci fi, and I can't wait to read this before I see the movie!!
Witch & Wizard, by James Patterson
I love James Patterson's fantasy writing! I've heard so many amazing things about this series, that I decided to give the first book a try!
Crown of Midnight, by Sarah J. Maas
YESSSS I have the second book! I already started it in the plane, review to come soon :)
This is the second book in the Throne of Glass series. You can find my review for Throne of Glass in an older post!
Witch Dreams, by Vivian Vande Velde (such a Dutch name o_o)
I started this in the car a few days ago, then DNFed it /: might get back to it later, though.
This short book is about a girl who can see other people's dreams just by holding on to something of theirs. She is trying to figure out who killed her parents.
I don't even know why I DNFed it to be honest o-o
Mind Games, by Kiersten White
I got this at the dollar store, and what I got from it is that there are two sisters, one of which is blind but can see different versions of the future. The second sister has perfect instincts.
This actually sounds really cool and I can't wait to get to it! :D
Invisibility, by Andrea Cremer and David Levithan
I have no idea what to expect with this book, to be honest. All I know is that it's about a boy who is cursed with invisibility, and a girl who is gifted with a sight which helps her see said invisible people.
I dunno, it sounds cool :')
Let's Get Lost, by Adi Alsaid
Okay so you guys know about my love for Paper Towns, right? Apparently this book has the same road-trip idea but taken in a different direction!
Aka, I'm SUPER excited to read this! :D
Hush, Hush, by Becca Fitzpatrick
I've been seeing Hush Hush EVERYWHERE!!! So when I saw it again at a second hand book store, I caved in and bought it. I really hope its as great as it sounds!
I know this book about fallen angels (I think) is getting highly mixed reviews. Like I saw that it was comparable to Twilight, which I didn't like much, but I also saw that it was completely amazing and unique....
I GUESS WE'LL FIGURE OUT LATER, SHALL WE?
One Thousand Paper Cranes, by Takayuki Ishii
The reason I got this book is because we did a project based on this Japanese story back in high school, and I've always wanted to read the book.
If I remember it correctly, this is about a girl who is very sick, and has a goal of making 1000 paper cranes. Her determination with this made her very well known in Japan, and there are now monuments to this girl in the country.
Can't wait to read the story for myself! :D
Seraphina, by Rachel Hartman
Dragons and medieval society and sci-fi? Sign. Me. Up! One of my bookish friends told me that I really have to get to this, and I mean it looks amazing!
Plus the cover is really shiny. Its a minor thing but still looks cool on my shelf ^-^
This is one of those books I've heard so much about that I just had to pick it up, you know what I mean?
Saint Anything, by Sarah Dessen (SIGNED COPY!)
Okay so no I did not have the chance to meet Sarah Dessen, but one of the bookstores I went to had a small pile of signed copies, and I'm so glad I got one!! *-*
I'm really looking forward to reading this book! I haven't read one of her books in a long time, so yeah =p
Can't wait to get to this one!
Across the Universe, by Beth Revis
Another one of those series that I've heard SO MUCH about but that I never got to! Now I have the first book, and, hopefully, I'll love it as much as everyone else! :D
This one is basically sci-fi about a bunch of people who wake up from being frozen asleep for years. However, there are people on the ship who have taken over for the worse.
The Iron King, by Julie Kagawa
Make sure to check out my review for this book! :D Now I just need to find the next ones somewhere!
Wicked Lovely, by Melissa Maar
As above, make sure to check out my review for this! :D
Eon, by Alison Goodman
Again, make sure to check out my review for Eon! :)
Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them, by J. K. Rowling
Again, make sure to check out my review for this!! Really recent and really great!
Down the Rabbit Hole, by Peter Abrahams (no image)
Basically a mystery re-telling of Alice in Wonderland, that looks like a fun read! :D
Eyes in Space; Spacecraft Views of the Universe, by Robert E. Mueller
Just a book about the evolution of how people looked at space so it looked cool :')
The Junior Classics 3; Myths and Legends
Very pretty older looking book full of myths and legends, which is something I really love! It can be a fun read!
So that's it! Let me know if you have read any of these and what you thought of them! :D
Tomorrow I will be designing the top 3 rating systems, and we'll have a 3 day long voting session!
