in which i acquitebooks1

i have acquired five books. also: cat.

if you have been a Random Reader for a while now, you would know that most of my book hauls are possible due to my sister. basically? she buys me books. she’s the best and you and i know that.

i haven’t done a book haul for AGES! it feels so good to show off my books and cat  and talk about them. guys, these books are MINE. i can read them and NOT RETURN THEM. i can have them FOREVER. hell yeah. 

anyway, BOOKS.

in which i show you a more detailed version

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline // Science Fiction Adult
long story short: rich guy has no children. rich guy dies. rich guy leaves a bunch of clues and a contest happen. video games in which i have no idea are.
opinion:  i already read this book and what can i say? the world blew my mind. all the others didn’t. characters? nope. writing? are you kidding me? no.

i enjoyed it enough to give it 4 stars (that’s high, yo) the flaws were not major (at least to me). i’ll have my review up on GR so stay tuned for that.

Tigana by Guy Gavriel Kay // High Fantasy Adult
long story short:  the king is a crappy king and some guys and gals try to set things right.
opinion: AN ADULT FANTASY BOOK. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE? i rarely see adult fantasy books and when i saw this have a 4.12 rating on GR, i was sold. 

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel // Post Apocolyptic Adult
long story short: there’s some actors from Hollywood and um … gah, okay, again, that’s all i know. i like to go through books blind.
opinion: have not read yet but im going to expect some exciting crap.

My Name Is Resolute by Nancy E. Turner // Historical Fiction Adult
long story short: AMERICAN REVOLUTION. PIRATES.
opinon: PIRATES. PIRATES. PIRATES. who the hell wouldn’t want to read this??  (also: Nancy Turner? William Turner? that guy in Pirates of the Carribean? coincedence? i think not.)

The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton // Historical Fiction Adult
long story short: there’s this minaturist. and something happens. lol, idk.
opinion: none. i havent read this book, just like evey other book in this haul, but im expecting it to blow my mind, capture my heart and all those sweet, cool other stuff.  


thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you sister for giving me this beautiful books. i will treasure them in my heart. 

that’s my wonderful book haul! thank you for reading and um, bye!
