I was doing very well at not buying a single book this month, then the black friday deals broke me.
Earlier in the month I used a few of my audible credits to get:
SPQR – Mary Beard (though having read a review, I’m not sure it will work that well as an audiobook. Think there will be diagrams and references it would be better if I can see them). Too late now!
Mythos – Stephen Fry. All part of trying to address a big gap in my education to ultimately help me be better at Learned League quizzes.
Dracula – Bram Stoker. A classic I’ve really wanted to get round to, especially after reading Frankenstein this year.
Then as I mentions, Black Friday sales broke my resolve and I ordered 6 books. They are all good uns though! They are:
- Nina Is Not Ok – Shappi Khorsandi
- It Only Happens in the Movies – Holly Bourne
- Moxie – Jennifer Mathieu
- Hidden Figures – Margot Lee Shetterly
- Days Without End – Sebastian Barry
- Scrappy Little Nobody – Anna Kendrick
I only bought two kindle books on the daily deal:
Seabiscuit – Laura Hillenbrand
The Outsider – Albert Camus.
So really, I did quite well for three weeks. Then just did all by book purchasing in one go! 😀
Click for link to the review
The Giraffe, The Pelly and Me – Roald Dahl. I’ve never read this one before!
Fantastic Mr Fox – Roald Dahl. Or this one. I read all the longer novels when I was a child (well, all the ones my local library had).
The Magic Faraway Tree – Enid Blyton. My son absolutely loves the adventures of Silky, Moon-face, and the children.
The german book – My daughter is just fascinated by the busy scene pictures in this book. We don’t usually even say the German words – I say the name of an item, and she finds it in the picture.
Stories for Girl – Various vacuous stories about fairies and mermaids mermaid. I didn’t buy this book, and obviously my daughter thinks it’s the best book ever!
Crystallising Chaos – My little pony story. I’ve read this so many times! *despair*
