You know how every single month we, book bloggers, wonder... how on earth did I end up with so many books? Well, I have the answer for my problem. I realised every time I feel down or stressed, I go online to check on books and I always add something to my cart and I always press buy. And here we are: 11 books (the fact that I read 12 books in October makes me feel slightly better).
Apart from The Book of Dust, which I was planning on buying as soon as it came out, and El conde de Montecristo (The Count of Monte Cristo) which I bought because I thought I'll like it since I absolutely adored The Three Musketeers last month, the remaining 9 titles were all recommendations that came my way thanks to bookstagram and booktube.
I'm excited for all of them (isn't that what we always say about all of our books?) but Little Fires Everywhere and If We Were Villains are high on my priority list. The former is the newest book by Celeste Ng and after loving her previous novel Everything I Never Told You (which you should all go and read) I have to see if this new novel meets my expectations - they aren't low. The latter is a new release, a mystery thriller set on an University campus involving Shakespearean actors. COUNT ME THE HELL IN, THANK YOU. All books will be linked down below.
Is there any title you see you've read? Or any you might be interested in?
