Book Haul I

New books that found their home on my bookshelves. Exciting!

 

 

Look how happy they are to be a part of my family!

 

 

I heard so many great things about Zafón's writing that I had to purchase a copy of The Shadow of the Wind. I purchased Ian Banks' Espedair Street because his Wasp Factory was so creepy yet wonderful and I wanted more. Three days after I did so, he died of cancer.

 

 

I have been eyeing these two sweethearts for so long, not only because of my love for classics but also because Penguin English Library editions - do I have to say any more?

 

 

 

When one of the greatest booktubers keeps going on and on about a book, you are obliged to read it. That is the story of me adopting Where Things Come Back.

 

 

 

I will be starting Where Things Come Back today and then dive into the rest very soon, hopefully. Yay! Have a lovely Tuesday, bookish people.

Espedair Street - Iain Banks The best rock & roll novel I've ever read.
Full of hope and despair (hmm, think that's what that title word is all about?), quirky humor and brilliant wit.
This is one of Banks' earlier books, and one of the last that I haven't yet read by him. He's just always excellent.

Espedair Street - Iain Banks They're supposedly just friends. But now they're lying naked on the beach together, looking up at the stars with no one else in sight, and he's trying to find a tactful way to explain how he feels about her. (This kind of thing seems to happen more frequently to rock stars than it does to me). Luckily, she's a practical girl with good night vision.

"Are you pointing at anything in particular?" she asks.
