October Book Haul

Hey everyone,

I bought books and I’m happy. Thought I might share it with you. 🙂

So, what did I buy?

IMG_06321. The Knife Of Never Letting Go, by Patrick Ness – I have heard so many brilliant things about Patrick Ness and this trilogy and really wanted to see what all the hype is about. I thought this might be a good place to start.

Prentisstown isn’t like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else’s thoughts in a constant, overwhelming, never-ending Noise. There is no privacy. There are no secrets.

Then, just one month away from the birthday that will make Todd Hewitt a man, he unexpectedly stumbles on a spot of complete silence. Which is impossible.

Breathtakingly exciting and emotionally charged, The Knife of Never Letting Go is a compellingly original story of fear, flight and the terrifying path of self-discovery.

2. Everything, Everything, by Nicola Yoon – I’m so excited to read this. I’ve heard so many good things about this book. So far, I have managed to stay away from spoilers of this ‘twist ending’ I keep hearing about. Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to read it soon. Can I also mention, I love this cover. I swear when I first got it, I stared at it for a good 10 minutes.

Live life in a bubble? Or risk everything for love?

Maddy is allergic to the world. She hasn’t left her house in seventeen years.

Olly is the boy next door. He’s determined to find a way to reach her.

Everything, Everything is about the crazy risks we take for love.

3. Attachments, by Rainbow Rowell – If it’s Rainbow, it’s worth a read. My sister has already read this and has said it is now one of her favourites. I really hope to get to this soon.

It’s 1999 and the internet is still a novelty. At a newspaper office, two colleagues, Beth and Jennifer, e-mail back and forth, discussing their lives in hilarious detail, from love troubles to family dramas. And Lincoln, a shy IT guy responsible for monitoring e-mails, spends his hours reading every exchange.

At first their e-mails offer a welcome diversion, but the more he reads, the more he finds himself falling for one of them. By the time Lincoln realises just how head-over-hells his is, it’s too late to introduce himself.

After a series of close encounters, Lincoln eventually decides he must follow his heart… and find out if there is such a things as love before first sight.

4. The Heroes of Olympus: The Blood of Olympus, by Rick Riordan – For some reason the box set I got of Heroes of Olympus did not have this book in it. Weird, I know. But I have it know, so all is okay. I will be reading this quite soon as I am currently up to House of Hades. I love the seven pictured on the front. I’m not sure why, but this made me very happy. Maybe, I’m hoping that that means they’ll all survive House of Hades. Wishful thinking, I know.

Seven heroic demigods. One final quest. The greatest sacrifice yet.

‘The ruins are up there,’ Piper promised. ‘I saw them is Katoptris’s blade. And you heard what Hazel said. “The biggest-“‘

‘”The biggest gathering of evil spirits I’ve ever sensed.”‘ Jason recalled. ‘Yeah, sounds awesome.’

After surviving many deadly quests, Percy, Jason, Annabeth and their friends face one final challenge: defeat an army of giants before the Earth Mother, Gaia, finally awakes and brings about the end of the world…

5. And last but not least, I-finally-have-this-in-my-hands-and-I’m-not-hyperventilating-at-all-what-are-you-talking-about. Carry On: The Rise and Fall of Simon Snow, by Rainbow Rowell – I have actually already read it. It only took me two days. It would have taken less if sleep wasn’t necessary and I didn’t have to go to school. Holy wow, this book was amazing. I’m going to stop ranting now and save it for the review (which I might post as soon as tonight. Depending on how I go with homework etc.) Just asdgfhkjtrbn.

Simon Snow is the worst chosen one who’s ever been chosen.

That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right.

Half the time Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he sets something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around wearing Simon’s face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here – it’s their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up.

Carry On: The Rise and Fall of Simon Snow is a ghost story, a love story, and a mystery. It had just as much kissing and talking as you’d expect from a Rainbow Rowell story – but far, far more monsters.

So that’s all folks. I hope you enjoyed this. Expect reviews soon… ish. I’ll try my best, but school is getting crazy again. I’m sorry some of the photos are kinda weird. I tried. I don’t really know anything about photography and also I just used my iPhone to take the pictures.

So yeah.

I hope you have a fabulous day. 🙂

Love Ellie ❤
