The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
Hi guys! :) Nothing really exciting happened for me this week and I was in a bit of a reading slump. I only managed to finish one book this past week :( The Winner's Curse is so boring and I don't know if I should give up on it (I am only 30% of the way in). So to cheer myself up, I went to the public library!
This was my first time being back at the library after 2 years and it was amazing. :) You can check out my haul below.
ALSO, I STARTED A TWITTER ACCOUNT! Does anyone wanna be my friend? :D
Seeker: Received this from Netgalley and this seems to be getting really mixed reviews on Goodreads, I wanna give it a go and hopefully I would enjoy it! Assassins!
The Book of Ivy: This sounds like an exciting read and there seems to be a hint at romance (!), can't wait to start on this. :)
This Shattered World: Finished the first book in the series last month and This Shattered World seems to have better ratings so I am really hoping to read this asap!
Everything I Never Told You: I was drawn by the mixed-race aspect of this story and also the author's name! This is a really common surname/last name here in Singapore and maybe Hong Kong(?) and I also found it pretty interesting that Celeste Ng herself pronounces it so differently. (how we pronounce it: try removing 'si' from Sing)
(PURCHASED) PHYSICAL BOOKS:
Saga #1: I've heard so much about this graphic novel series and I am so excited to finally have it! :)
Burial Rites: I love historical fiction and this just sounded so intriguing! I added this to my cart on Book Depository at 20% off and when I decided to check out the next day, it was on a 47% sale (or thereabouts)! So it was only $8 SGD/$6 USD. YAY!
Show Your Work: I really need to know more about the creative industry/community and this is my first step at preparing myself for the working world.
(BORROWED) PHYSICAL BOOKS:
Seconds: This caught my eye as it looked brand new among all the worn Marvel comics (what a strange reason). I read half the synopsis and assumed that it was a contemporary novel about a chef and decided to borrow it hahah, it actually has fantasy elements in it. Read the first few pages and it is pretty good so far!
Maus I & II: I WAS ECSTATIC WHEN I SAW THESE AT THE LIBRARY. This particular library branch had a tiny 4 shelf comic section so I was not expecting much and I nearly screamed when I came across these. I really enjoy movies and books set in World War 2, this duology is right up my alley!
We Were Liars: I got the ebook 2 weeks ago but I saw this hardback copy at the library so why not?
Shatter Me: I've always wanted to try out this series! This cover is really hideous though, the new ones are a 100000 times better.
Winger: I am always drawn to books set in schools and this sounds so good! I flipped through it and saw some doodles/comic sequences, that's a huge plus! The spine is so gorgeous, I want it on my shelf...
