Earlier this month (or it could’ve been last month), I made a post where I listed which books I hoped to purchase in the month of March; and I am proud to say that I purchased 6 out of those 9 books AND MORE!
Today I bring to you a very late January Wrap-Up, brought to you by my friend who I am probably letting down by writing this post and not doing the group assignment.
In the month of January I managed to read 3 books:
- Gregory and The Grimbockle by Melanie Schubert, who was lovely enough to send me a copy. I posted a review if this book last month and I also did an interview with the author which can be found here.
- Turtles All The Way Down by John Green was the second book of the month. I have linked my review above also.
- Storm and Grace by Kathryn Heyman was sent to me by Allen and Unwin a while back and I had put it off because it didn’t sound like my type of read. Last month I thought I should finally give it a go and it was a wild read. I recommend you read my review (linked above) before picking up the book because it is not for everyone.
Yesterday (9 Feb 2018), my mother and I went to the book launch of Ironheart by Jodi McAlister!
The event was held in Readings Kids, a kids/ young adult bookstore the opened up on Lygon Street in Carlton, Melbourne mid last year. It sits beside its older brother store Readings, which sells all the big kids books such as non-fiction and all genres other than kids and YA.
Hey Ho Bookaholics!
I only paid $10 for books this month and I could never be prouder of myself in the shopping department and for this achievement I would like to thank Bloomsbury for inviting me to the Bloomsbury Bloggers event and gifting me with all of these amazing looking books! I would also like to thank Andrew’s Bookshop for actually stocking and discouting a hardback graphic novel! Three things that are very very hard to come by in Australian bookstores – hardbacks, cheap books, graphic novels – were found and August ended on an amazing note.
