This is a meme I have seen a lot on other blogs and I always found it to be an interesting read, so I want to participate too.
It was created by The Broke and The Bookish, if you want to participate take a look at their blog.
As you can see, this week’s theme are books that somehow came into my possession; bought, checked out of a library, arcs, gifts… you name it.
1. In the Afterlight (bought)
2. Never Fade (bought)
5. The Sherpherd and the Solicitor (arc)
6. To love a traitor (arc)
7. Dreams of Gods & Monsters (gift)
8. Days of Blood & Starlight (gift)
9. Daughter of Smoke & Bone (gift)
10. The Ambassador’s Mission (gift)
I know, a whole series as a gift? Was it my birthday? Nope. Do people randomly give me books? I wish. Imagine you’re walking somewhere and a person comes up to you and says ‘here, have this book. You might like it.’
This year my girlfriend and I decided to exchange books for our anniversary (we decided on a money limit) and I got the Daughter of Smoke & Bone series and other books. You have to love used bookstores, right? If you’re interested, I bought her two books of the In the darkest minds series (they were new, don’t look at me, she wanted hardcover and those are pricey). And yes, she read the first book and made me buy them myself and I’m really happy, because I love it.
