Um…..so I’ve started a book tubing channel. There’s nothing exciting on it yet but if you want to check it out then….
I really want to try making book tube videos but where to begin? And how do you get past the worry.
It looks like so much fun.
I have almost a complete shelf full of rick Riordan books…. Probably could get rid of the paperback doubles but I won’t.
We’re really close to finishing for Christmas and everyone is struggling to get finished so of course the teachers are striking tomorrow and there’s a teacher training day on Wednesday
Sorry I take ages to reply on here ^^”
I’ve had my first university reply and bucks new university have offered me places on both the courses I applied for!
Now just need to wait for university of Hertfordshire and Canterbury Christ church
November book haul folks!!Warning: predictive text will be causing problems
And it is a doozy!!
(I am now on a book ban but to be fair most of these we’re purchased with money and vouchers I got for my birthday on the 6th)
Starting at the bottom of the left pile and work up:
The gold finch by Donna tartt- I have no idea what this book is about I don’t even know how I got it. It just appeared in my room so if you’ve read it and have an opinion feel free to let me know.
The wolves of midwinter by Anne rice- I believe this is a sequel to the wolf gift which I am currently reading and it is interesting so far. It’s nice to find a story that doesn’t seem to be copying off twilight. I haven’t finished it yet but I’m liking so I saw this in my local book shop and it’s a hardback so I had to.
Skulduggery pleasant book 1 by Derek Landry - I already have paperback copies of this book but it was 50p and for charity. And I love this book, I first got it when I was having a bad time in secondary school purely for cover value. It’s a skeleton in a suit, what’s not to love? I’ve read it so many times and I’m still working my way through the series but this skeletons humour is brilliant and I’m very happy to have a hardback copy.
The divergent series by Veronica Roth- I don’t usually buy an entire series at the same time when I haven’t read any of it yet but I’m trying to focus a lot more on buying hardback editions and the only way to get the first book was in this double book box set and then the third came out in hardback so I might as well have. I’m not completely filled on the whole story but I’ve been hearing a lot of good things on book tube so I’m hopeful for it.
The doctor who 50th anniversary collection: I shouldn’t have to say anything about why I bought this.
The hunger games by Suzanne Collins- I am finally jumping on this band wagon and I’ve read the first couple pages and even though I’m not really a fan of first person writing it has definitely grabbed my attention so hopefully it lives up to the hype. Oh and if you’re wondering why I have another full set Of the series as well it’s because I got carried away with my internet book shopping and forgot I had this hardback copy coming so I bought the very shiny trilogy in my local book shop.
The last unicorn by Peter S Beagle- This is my second attempt at buying this book, the first turned out to be a graphic novel of the movie but it’s actually quite cool so I’m keeping that. I had the last unicorn on video when I was little and loved watching it even though it was very trippy now that I look back on it. It’s very much a fantasy which I love so I can’t wait to read it. Took me ages to find a decent copy.
Stardust by Neil gaiman- I am a huge fan of Neil gaiman and have been plowing through his adult books and some of his children books so this hardback copy of stardust was love at first sight. It’s a special revised reprint and has some beautiful artwork by Charles Vess in it.
Good omens by terry pratchett and Neil gaiman- Again, I love Neil gaiman and I’ve never actually read anything by terry pratchett but I know of him by reputation of course. And I do have the hogfather an going postal on my shelf waiting to be read. I WILL read the hogfather in time for Christmas.
Second pile starting from the bottom:
The children of Hurin by JRR Tolkien - I am a huge lover of tolkiens works and I’ve meaning to start getting the history of middle earth books for a while so when I saw this hardback in a charity shop for £0.90p it wasn’t even a question.
Wonder struck by Brian Selznick- this one was an influence from book tube and from what I’ve seen so far it’s a story of two separate people who are 50 years apart. One tells their story with words and the other with drawings and I’ve had a look at some of them and they are pretty cool.
Heroes of Olympus book 1&2 book set by rick Riordan- This pissed me off a little bit because I already have these two in paperback but I have mark of Athena and house of hades in hardback so I went search for hardback versions of the first two in the series. This was advertised as a hardback box set implying both were hardbacks but as you can see only the son of Neptune is. But I’ve sorted it and I’ve got a hardback copy of lost hero on the way.
The shadow hunters codex by Cassandra Clare- Another band wagon I’m jumping on I have the first book on the way and this seems to be a companion with some back ground info on the series which should be interesting.
Ghost knight by Cornelia funke- I’m two books into her ink heart trilogy which I’m enjoying so I thought I’d check out some of her other work.
Battle royal the novel by koushun takami- Ah battle royal, I’ve only every seen part of the movie but this book is infamous so I’m anxious to try it. Japanese school kids being set on each other on a secret island? Sounds delightful.
1984 by George Orwell - I’ve herd this book be ranted bout on here and book tube so I thought I’d see what all the fuss is about.
Hunger games trilogy- I guess I already explained this.
The worse witch and the shooing star by Jill Murphy - oh my god I grew up watching this show and just adoring Mildred so seeing this book in my local bookshop made me very happy.
Percy Jackson the Demi god files by rick Riordan- the companion book to the Percy Jackson series and my thumbs hurt from typing.
Well that’s it for this month , 24 books!! and I am now on a book ban until I work through some this mass. If you have any opinions on some of these titles you would like to share feel free to comment or message me and we can chat bookworm to each other.
