Book Haul # 4

I’ve gone cray-cray these past couple of weeks. But you see, I’ve had a lot of free time and while wandering Madrid to buy birthday gifts I also did stop by some bookstores. One of those is La Casa Del Libro (a.k.a The Book House) in Callao (Madrid) which has updated the English book section and is like being in paradise. The other one is called Pasajes and they are specialized in foreign literature (English, German, Italian, French… you name it). And so of course I did some damage and by that I mean I gave them my money and I don’t regret it one bit.

This book haul is gonna be a mix of fiction and classics because they had the beautiful Penguin English Library editions and I cannot begin to tell you how much I adore them and well, I would have to read them for Uni so that was another excuse to get them really. In addition, they also had the new Little Black Classics that Penguin released due to its 80th birthday. They are so teeny tiny and cute and I got those I was interested in. Instead of writing out the books I got and why I got them, I’m just gonna put pictures because otherwise this will be a very long post. 

There you have it! Have you read some of them? In that case tell me below! Happy reading guys!

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas | 2021 Reads

  I enjoyed this because Thomas focuses mostly on the internal conflicts of the main character and how her decisions affect her and everybody around her and still deals with a lot of racial issues that Black (and Brown) young people have to deal with in the US, especially in poor neighbourhoods. Bri is a teen going through a difficult time. She can seem hot-headed, opinionated and, at times, selfish, but she is just trying to be herself, help those she loves and pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. I was reminded though of why I rarely read YA contemporary fiction these days: one, dramatic teens (don't get me wrong, I get where they are coming from but still makes my eyes roll) and two, intentional lack of communication between adults and kids which drives me up the wall.
