So I went to the library on Saturday… and I brought home a lot of books. I mean, as the title states, it’s a ridiculously huge amount of books. I’m probably going to read around two of the many books I took out, but I still enjoyed my trip. I also got some DVD’s out of the library also, which I’ll tell you about too.
So let’s get on with it!
Flawed – I heard some buzz about this book around a year ago and was kinda interested in it then, so I decided to pick it up. I sort of know what this is about, but I’m interested to know more.
Wave Me Goodbye – I really like Jacqueline Wilson’s books (Four Children and It was one of my favourite books when I was a kid) and I want to read all the children’s books she’s written. This is one of her historical fiction books, and I want to see where she takes the story.
Broken Things – I’ve already started this book, and I’m enjoying it so far. This is the first Lauren Oliver I’ve read, and I hope it’s really good. It’s very interesting so far, and I’m reading it fairly quickly.
I’ll Give You The Sun – I’ve wanted to read this book for the longest time, so I decided to just pick the book up from the library and take it home. The one I brought back from the library has got the most awful cover in the world, and I’m so bummed I didn’t get the beautiful one above, but hey, it’s the same words.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy – I watched the movie for this a few years ago and I really liked it, even though it was incredibly weird. I want to read more Science Fiction books, so I thought this was the perfect place to start. I have to say though, this cover is one of the most despicable things I’ve ever seen. Ew.
The Miniaturist – I watched the mini-series of this and it was different. I did like it, but it wasn’t at all what I though the story was about, and it kind of ruined it for me. Well, not ruined, but you know what I mean (I hope). But I do want to read the book to see how similar the mini-series is.
Egg & Spoon – This book I picked up on a whim and ended up taking out. I know very little about this book, but I like the cover, and I know that the author of this also wrote the novel Wicked, which is cool.
Every Heart A Doorway – This book series is absolutely everywhere, and I want to know why. It’s really short, but everyone seems to love it. I’m thinking of saving it for a readathon, but I dunno. Also the premise really interests me, because it’s something I think about more than necessary.
Ape House – I got this book for my mum because I know she loves all things apes. She also read Water For Elephants by this author, and I think she liked it. So hopefully she’ll like this book too.
Ready Player One – I got this because I want to watch this with my dad, since it looks pretty cool. When I got home I found out that Simon Pegg is also in this movie, which makes me want to watch it even more.
What We Did On Our Holiday – I remember watching this for the first time on the plane moving from Australia to Ireland, so that was a cool experience. It turned out that my mum, sister and I watched the movie on the same plane ride, which was crazy. So I took this out to watch it again, and see if it’s still as good as when I watched it the first time.
Bridget Jones’s Baby – The first movie of this series was on a few nights ago, but I didn’t end up watching it because my brother and sister were watching Deck The Halls. So when I was at the library, I just decided to pick it up. I’m really excited to watch this because it’s got Colin Firth in it, and he’s awesome. Update: I’ve just finished watching it and I thought it was great. Haven’t seen the first two but now I damn well want to!
Everything, Everything – I read this book this year and enjoyed it, and since then I’ve really wanted to watch the movie. Nick Robinson and Amandla Stenberg seem to be the go-to YA protagonists for movies, and I’m not complaining. I can’t wait to watch this movie and compare it to the book.
So those are all the things I got out of the library on Saturday. I know, a little excessive. But I’m going to have a great time devouring these stories, and hopefully I’ll get to them all (although we all know that’s not going to happen). I hope you have a great day and I’ll see you very soon with a new post. Bye!
