I promise I don’t buy this many books every month.
I’m not a big poetry fan, but this book has gotten so popular that I thought I would check and see what all the hype is about. I’ve read a couple of pages and it seems pretty heavy… (not that’s necessarily a bad thing!) What did you guys think?
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
No, I have not read The Catcher in the Rye. And yes, I know it’s embarrassing. So many people have been telling me how great this book is and how I should read it. Well. Now I’ve bought it. That’s the first step right? Now I just have to find the time (and motivation to read it).
The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
Part of the movie adaptation of this book was filmed at my high school! I’ve also heard good things.
The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende
I read this one in high school and immediately became obsessed. This book is the epitome of beautiful books. I have so so so much love for this book. I honestly don’t know why I’m only buying by own copy of it now.
Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende
I really want to be an Isabel Allende fan… But I can’t if I’ve only read one of her books, right?
The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner
This is the third book in the series. I do not own, nor have I read any of the other books. But it was $2.50 at the thrift store and I hope to purchase the whole series eventually, so why not right?
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
Just finished reading this one! You can check out my review here.
And I Darken by Kiersten White
Oh baby. I have heard so many good things about this book. I am hella excited to read this one. The protagonist sounds totally badass. Also let’s talk about that cover though… 100%.
