Look what I got!

I ended up buying a few books today, which was unexpected. One of my work colleagues asked me if I’d heard about this book.gifts

I had certainly seen it floating around on Litsy but hadn’t paid it much attention. My colleague was wondering if it would be okay for her 12 year old son but she was worried it would be too scary because zombies. That is one of the magic words that will get my attention every time. We established that it would probably be okay for her son and that I desperately wanted to read it as well. So we wandered over to acquire copies on our lunch break.

While we were there, I noticed this book, which was recently reviewed by the lovely Stephanie of Teacher of YA .


It, of course, needed to accompany me on my journey home. It’s very happy here in case you were wondering.

The acquisition that I am most excited about though is this one:


I feel like I’ve been waiting for this book forever. Hannah Kent’s debut novel Burial Rites was absolutely amazing and I was so excited when I heard that her next book was on it’s way. This one is set in 1825 in Ireland… which can only mean one thing, right?

At any rate I’m sure you can guess what I’ll be  doing with my weekend – I will definitely have a review of the Good People on the blog before it is over.

Have you made any recent book purchases that have made you incredibly happy? What were they?





  1. All three books look great. I have seen The Girl with all the Gifts around, I hope that it will be a great read for you. I also like the covers of the other two. I haven’t bought any new books in a while. I have a number of ARCs from NetGalley that I plan on getting through first then I can busy some books guilt-free. Enjoy your new additions:-)

  2. Oh man, I really enjoyed The Girl With All The Gifts, at least what I could read of it. There was a lot of physical violence (zombies, and all that). It got too graphic for me, and I had to stop reading. But I’m a big wuss.
    I have a copy of The Thousandth Floor with a different cover. I really like this one, though! I hope you enjoy all your books.
