.1 Having wanted to read this book since I started hearing about it, you can imagine my delight when the publishers offered me a copy of FALLING INTO PLACE. First up, the cover is a pure delight to stare at although physics equations baffle me completely having never really studied it. Second, the premise. Third, the reception it has had amongst many people I know. And finally, the author is a teen.
.2 Browsing through my local charity bookshop I stumble across this copy of THE NIGHT CIRCUS, do a little (inner) jig, swipe it from the shelves; and of course, buy it. I finally own my own copy.
.3 A beautiful, beautiful hardback with pink edged pages: MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME. Brimming with wonder, delight and overflowing hearts. What's not to love? Oh, and did I mention it is a collection of stories written by authors such as Ally Carter, Gayle Forman, Laini Taylor and Rainbow Rowell?!!!!
.4 You know how much I loved THE ELITES, well guess what; when I read this? Well - oh you want to know what I thought? Too bad, you'll have to wait for my review. Hot Key Books and their covers though.
.5 The bookshop is silent. Almost. Sounds leak softly through the door which is opened just a crack. A ladder leans heavily against the wall, as if too weary to be standing without aide; MR PENUMBRA'S 24 HOUR BOOKSTORE is 'open', but where are the occupants? Where is the owner?
.6 ANATOMY OF A MISFIT: I'm not sure to be honest. Why don't you tell me.
.7 This final book was a surprise in the mail and as I had heard copious amounts of praise for this I am excited to start it - especially as everything in it is true: MALALA: THE GIRL WHO STOOD UP FOR EDUCATION AND CHANGED THE WORLD. (Has anyone else read this yet?)
Who knows when I will be able to read any of these though, who knows when I will start going to bed later than nine? I have a feeling I'm going to start going to bed earlier than that soon... But hey, that's the cool thing to do - who wants to stay up all night on the weekends then come into college like a zombie? (Although admittedly I look like that every day anyway - a good night's sleep: such a distant memory..)
