Hi guys! So as you guys know, I went to a homestay program for the last two weeks. But now I’m back! The whole experience was really fun. I met new friends, explored new places, learnt new things, and the homestay families were really nice.
But aside from that, I also visited some bookstores. And I bought 4 books. That’s not much I know, but that’s the most I’ve ever bought in a month. So without further do, here they are!
1. I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
The story follow Jude and her twin Noah who were incredibly close, until a tragedy drove them apart, and now they are barely speaking. The story is told from two povs, Noah and Jude.
Lately I’ve been in the mood for some contemporary books, so when I read the description from Goodreads, I want it immediately. And I don’t have any books with yellow spines, so I bought this edition.
2. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
The story follows Victor Frankenstein, who obsessed with the secrets of life and created a new life from bodies of the dead. He became horrified by his creation, and his creation, rejected his own appereance, brought death, terror and misery for Frankenstein.
I want to read more classics, and I’ve wanted to read Frankenstein for the longest time. Frankenstein is one of the most famous monsters, and I just want to read the backstory of the creation of the monster. I’m already into some chapters, and so far, it’s really satisfying and kind of creepy.
3. The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
Prentisstown isn’t like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else’s thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise. Just a month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd and his dog, Manchee — whose thoughts Todd can hear too, whether he wants to or not — stumble upon an area of complete silence. They find that in a town where privacy is impossible, something terrible has been hidden — a secret so awful that Todd and Manchee must run for their lives.
I’ve seen many good reviews about this book, and I get this book for a buy 2 get 1 free book so why not? And I’ve never read any book by Patrick Ness, but many people love his book so I think it’s time for me to try reading one of his books.
4. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
The story follows Celaena Sadorthien, who is a trained assasin who got caught. To buy her freedom, Celaena must represent the prince in a to-the-death tournament—fighting the most gifted thieves and assassins in the land. Live or die, Celaena will be free.
Female assasin? That seals the deal for me. I’m in. So many people raving about this series, it’s one of the hyped series lately. And Sarah J. Maas also released a new book this year so it’s the perfect time for me to start reading her book.
So that’s all the book I’ve got, and I’m really statisfied with them. All of them are from authors I’ve never read before, so it’s going to be exciting to read their books. Tell me which book should I read first, and see you in my next post!
