Behold the Pretty Books!

Behold the Pretty Books!

I went on a book buying spree this week! You know how it is, you can’t just buy one…

Sketches From a Hunter’s Album by Ivan Turgenev
I asked my friend to loan me a classic for my 2012 Classics Challenge and this is what she chose! As a Sociology student, I’m sure I’ll find it fascinating.

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
I will also be reading this for my 2012 Classics Challenge.

His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman
I saw that Priscilla @ The Readables had a similar edition and I loved it. I already have the paperbacks but I never did get around to reading the third book. Hopefully now I might!

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
I *loved* Anna and the French Kiss. You can read my review here.

Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
This book was on my YA Contemporary wishlist. I found the US hardback online really cheap!

The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey
This hardback is so pretty and I couldn’t seem to get away from everyone talking about it a few months ago. I’ll now be able to see for myself what’s so fantastic about it.

Malory Towers Collection of 6 Stories by Enid Blyton (audiobook)
I had an urge to listen to an audiobook a few weeks ago and this is what I chose. I remember listening to it as a little girl!

  1. I loved The Snow Child! It was awesome! I have heard a lot about Farenheit 451, so interested to hear what you think about it.

  2. I love the cover of Philip Pullman’s book. I have read all of them and really liked them.
    I have Anna and Lola on my book shelf waiting to be read.

  3. Ohhh I love Malory Towers. I still have my mom’s copy of “Last Term At Malory Towers.” I’ve heard good things about His Dark Materials 🙂 I saw The Golden Compass movie a few years back. I haven’t read the book, but I think the movie was a bit different.

  4. I love that copy of His Dark Materials, I have just have the boring paperbacks. Hopefully you’ll get a chance to read The Amber Spyglass.
    My old roommate isn’t a big reader but she loves Fahrenheit 451. I liked it- I think we read it in school right after 1984 so maybe that’s why I never loved it, since I really liked 1984.
