Book Buying

Recent Bookish Buys (#4)

 

I know I posted a book haul just like, 15 days ago but, I have some new books to show to you. Again. :D Thankfully, I didn’t pay for any of these books, I had this gift voucher lying around and finally, last week, I managed to convince my parents to take me there. And then, this happened! I have 10 books to show to you, and out of these 9 of them are classics/literary fiction. I just bought one contemporary book (that too a read book) and the rest of the money I decided to spend on classics. So without further ado, let’s get into the books!

(Excuse the poor quality of the pictures, I am a terrible photographer)

1. Eleanor and Park, Rainbow Rowell

I’ve read this book a couple of times before, and it’s absolutely beautiful. The story of two misfits, falling in love and finding a connection many crave for. RR’s writing is hilarious, sad and touching. A must read!

2. Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare

I have no idea what made me pick this book, but nevertheless, I’m happy. I;m trying to get into reading more plays and dramas this year, and would love to try out this one!

3. Mansfield Park, Jane Austen

I love Jane Austen, and because I recently read Sense and Sensibility, I’m in the mood for some Austen writing. That is the sole reason I ended up buying the book, and can’t wait to read it!

4. War and Peace, Leo Tolstoy

This book is huge, daunting and scary – I’ll be honest. And the font is so tiny!! I’m not really planning on picking this up any time soon, but I just wanted to own it, so I bought it!

5. All the Light We Cannot See, Anthony Doerr

Among all of the book I bought, this is the one I’m most excited about, and the book I was happiest to see in the store. I CANNOT WAIT!!

6. The Goldfinch, Donna Tart

Know nothing about the book, except that it won the Pulitzer Prize and highly recommended by everyone.

7. The Color Puprle, Alice Walker

As far as I know, this book deals with racism (I think?) and the summary on the back cover is sad. This I believe is required reading in quite a lot of schools and I just feel that I should read this book, if it’s that important and good.

8. The Black Book, Orhan Pamuk

I’ve recently come to know about thus author, and was instantly intrigued when I read the summaries of a few of his books. So when I saw this book in the store, I couldn’t help but buy it :P

9. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, Mark Haddon

Apparently, this book is about a boy who investigates the murder of a dog? Another book I know very little about, but definitely interested to read.

10. The Catcher in the Rye, J. D. Salinger

I’ve hear that this book is a hit or miss – you either love it or hate it. Very intrigued to read it and find out which category I fall in.

——————–

So that was it for my book haul! I most probably won’t be buying any more books for a while now…at least till the end of the month, if my self-control exists :D
