I rarely buy books anymore for myself – or I didn’t for years. I decided that this year, my self-enforced book buying drought will be over. I miss having my own books. I will still use the library for the bulk of my reading, but I am going to indulge this year as a form of self-care. I deserve books too! Lol.
Since I am super excited and the people around me in my life, in person, aren’t as excited as I am about books – with the exception of my 7 year old son, who also gets geeked about books. He yells “Yay books” every time we go into the library and I am always like “Inside voice!” but I am always stifling a laugh because I feel that way too. The library staff loves him and they are also pretty tickled by his excitement. Anyway, Wyatt loves books too, but he doesn’t get super excited about MY books. Naturally. So, I am sharing with you all!
So grab a cup of something and let me show you my new book babies!
The Last Unicorn. This has always always been a favorite of mine. I love the book, and I also love the animated movie which is pretty much almost exactly like the book. I will admit that parts of the movie freaked me out as a kid! I’ve never owned the book before but this cover.. I had to.
My most recent read! I absolutely adored this book. The little blurb that says it is a warm hug of a book – 100% accurate!
I have heard so many good things about T. J. Klune and I can’t wait to read this one. Everyone who has read it has seemed to love it. I have it on my list for next month, when I am doing Middle Grade March.
I bought this entirely for the cover. And the title. I didn’t even really read what it was about, but, well, if you read here often you know my love of rabbits.
Another stunning cover, and another one I have heard a lot of praise for.
I am so excited to read this one! This is a supernatural retelling of Anne of Green Gables which sounds so cool to me! The author also wrote Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries which I loved! I will probably read this for Middle Grade March too.
So, this is another one I don’t know too much about but I liked the look of it, and it also sounds like something I would enjoy. So fingers crossed!
These three were not purchased by me, but purchased for me by Billy for Christmas and my birthday, but I wanted to include them anyway because they are so cool. There was a time in my life when I would read Walden and Civil Disobedience every year. I haven’t read either for a long time, so I need to at least touch base with Walden again. And I have never read John Muir at all!
And finally these last three are books I have already talked about here. Two were books I had checked out from the library originally (Legends & Lattes, Emily Wilde). I ended up buying Legends and then my dad surprised me with the Heather Fawcett book! He said he saw and knew I would love it. And then of course, A Woman in the Polar Night that I just finished.
I also want to share this photo of my assistant today.
She was a huge helper!
Thanks everyone for giving me an opportunity to share my excitement!
