Books, glorious books, wonderful books! I'm so happy, but my wallet isn't. My wallet hates me and wants to kill me now. I understand since I did go a few dollars over budget, but it was for books. For the good of intellectual stimulation.
These are some books I got from Book Depository online and Kinokuniya during my field trip. Not all the books I got are here though. Love Letters To The Dead (reviewed here) since I lent it to a friend and Ms Marvel Volume 1, which hasn't arrived yet.
Here are the books I got, and hopefully will enjoy!
Saga Volume 1 & 2 by Brian K. Vaughn | I bought the first volume a month ago, loving it. So when I saw the second volume in the bookstore, I immediately took it and placed it in my basket. It's such a gritty and surreal comic about an inter-species couple and their baby trying to be safe amidst war between species.
Ms. Marvel Generation Why Volume 2 by G. Willow Wilson | A Pakistani-American Muslim headlining her own comic? Of course I was going to buy it. Seeing my religion explored so positively for mainstream audience is amazing. A great step in diversity. Unfortunately Ms Marvel Volume 1 hasn't arrived yet. So I don't think I'll read it just yet.
It by Alexa Chung | A few fashion bloggers recommended me this book after my review of #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso here. I know little to nothing about Alexa Chung, only that she has an eyeliner line with Eyeko and is an apparent fashion icon. So I'm intrigued to what this book will offer, hoping she is as inspiring as Sophia Amoruso.
Love & Misadventures by Lang Leav | A selection of poems about, well, love and misadventures. I'm not a poet, nor do I read a lot of them. This caught my eye with its simple but beautiful cover. I've read a few of the work Lang Leav has written. I can see why it's so popular with teenagers. It's romantic, it's human.
Bossypants by Tina Fey | Tina Fey is my role model. I love her and anything she does. She could spit on my face, and I'd never wash my face ever again. She's brash, hilarious in wit and a comedy goddess. She's also an amazing person. I borrowed Bossypants a few years ago, finishing it halfway so I intend on finishing it now.
All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven | The book I'm currently reading, slow and steady I may add since I have exams right now. I didn't know much about the book beforehand. It's praised for having a great, realistic portrayal of depression. That said, it was also called okay and boring. I'm one-third into this book, and I have to agree.
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart | Everyone has been recommending me this book. They claim that it isn't just good. It was 'scream and throw it against the wall' good. I don't know much about it, only the notoriety around it. Some love it, some hate it, and some found it pretentious. I can't wait to see what the book has in store.
I hope some of these books tickled your fancy! Personally, I'm excited to read Ms Marvel and We Were Liars. Do any of them interest you? I'd love to know!
