Book Haul: January 2016 (Part 1)

bookhaul

Of course, after resting for about 1 1/2 months of not buying books, I decided to finally visit a bookstore and you know, just do a *little* book haul. And you know what, I really missed buying books. 😦

Thanks to my dad who supported me in my love for books, without him, this book haul wouldn’t even be possible. I bought Tiger Lily because one of my best friend told me about what this book is about and I think I like it; then, The 5th wave because I want to read it first before watching the movie and of course, I NEED to buy its sequel, The Infinite Sea; Next is Maybe Not because I love Maybe Someday and I’m expecting to cry and be in love in the same time in this novella; and finally, Memories because I’m such a sucker of love quotes. The rest, I bought them because I like the synopsis and *a little secret* I am so interested in books pertaining to suicide topics. I don’t know, I guess I want to understand them more. 🙂

synopsis1

My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.

But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.

Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.


book review1IMG_1905

Sometimes I reread my favorite books from back to front. I start with the last chapter and read backward until I get to the beginning. When you read this way, characters go from hope to despair, from self-knowledge to doubt. In love stories, couples start out as lovers and end as strangers. Coming-of-age books become stories of losing your way. Your favorite characters come back to life.

synopsis1

I’m not crazy. I don’t see what the big deal is about what happened. But apparently someone does think it’s a big deal because here I am. I bet it was my mother. She always overreacts.

Fifteen-year-old Jeff wakes up on New Year’s Day to find himself in the hospital. Make that the psychiatric ward. With the nutjobs. Clearly, this is all a huge mistake. Forget about the bandages on his wrists and the notes on his chart. Forget about his problems with his best friend, Allie, and her boyfriend, Burke. Jeff’s perfectly fine, perfectly normal, not like the other kids in the hospital with him. Now they’ve got problems. But a funny thing happens as his forty-five-day sentence drags on: the crazies start to seem less crazy. 


book review1

“Seven little crazy kids chopping up sticks;
One burnt her daddy up and then there were six.
Six little crazy kids playing with a hive;
One tattooed himself to death and then there were five.
Five little crazy kids on a cellar door;
One went all schizo and then there were four.
Four little crazy kids going out to sea;
One wouldn’t say a word and then there were three.
Three little crazy kids walking to the zoo;
One jerked himself too much and then there were two.
Two little crazy kids sitting in the sun;
One a took a bunch of pills and then there was one.
One little crazy kid left all alone;
He went and slit his wrists, and then there were none.”

I totally forgot to post my December Book Haul *shame* since a lot of things happened to me. Believe me, the past 3 months were the worst months I’ve experienced but now, I’m actually doing okay, great even, and I’m happy to be in the state where I am right now. 🙂

PS: Those magnetic bookmarks are from craftedvan and it makes my reading life more enjoyable. ❤

The rest (November 9, The Wrath and the Dawn, and The Martian) were gifts and I am so happy to have them! 🙂 🙂
