Christmas book haul
When I was little my mom used to pick out my books for me because she had to preapprove a lot of my books due to the level that I was reading at. Now though, she pretty much just buys me the books that I specifically ask for because she doesn't know what I do/do not own already!
So for Christmas I got
Mom and I read this one over the break, it was interesting! Review to come soon
I binge-read Cinder, Scarlet and Cress just so I could read the final book in the series! I'm still processing what I read but I'll have a review up soon
This book was truly horrible and in lieu of posting a review I'm currently planning on making a little book talk post about it
This one profiles 52 women (from the past) who made significant contributions to a variety of different scientific fields- I'm super excited for it! I can't decided if I want to read it all at once or just read one lady a week
This one was originally recommended to me by one of my best friends as a perfect "university read" so I'm planning on saving it for when the semester gets more crazy
While the book itself sounds super crazy and intense and perfect I also love that Erin Bow is a physicist- science ladies represent!
I think that I will probably save this one for either reading week or summer break
My birthday book haul
I bought the following 5 books for myself- for my birthday! I bought them all on Kobo for my ereader since I pretty much have the tiniest room ever and there is no more room for books
I am such a sucker for fantasy and I LOVE when there are princesses/queens/royalty involved!
I've heard so much about this book and I'm definitely looking forward to it. Probably one of my favourite things is that Susan is presenting a new take on magic (high five for being birthday buddies!)
I love Alex's other books and have recently been obsessed with time travel books so I knew I needed this one (also it came out on my bday- yeah for being birthday buddies!)
A while ago, Alexa from Alexa Loves Books and Jodi Meadows mentioned how much they loved Robin's books so when I saw that this one was on sale I knew I'd have to give it a try. Plus its one of the Flights of Fantasy book club reads for this month!
5. Gone by Michael Grant
I borrowed this book from friends a couple years ago and found that it was sort of middle of the road. It was on sale though so I figured that it would be worth a try again!
