Update | I finally bought some books!

It’s been so, so long since I’ve bought any books! I don’t normally buy books because they’re expensive(ish) in New Zealand, and I don’t have a credit/debit card, so buying stuff online is a major hassle. And I don’t have much money to begin with…

Anyway, I was determined to buy some books today! I ended up getting A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas, and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I read Fangirl earlier in the year, and loved it, so I really want to re-read it. I’m super excited to read ACOTAR, hopefully in the next couple of weeks! I really wanted to get Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli, but the store didn’t have it >.< Next time! Also, there was a ‘buy 1, get 1 half price’ deal on, so that was a bonus.


ACOTAR is one of the few books I’ve bought before reading. I can’t even remember the last time I bought a new (not second hand or whatever) book that I’m yet to read. I’m really worried about spending $20+ on a book I don’t end up liking, so that’s why I normally buy books that I love and want to re-read. However, I love SJM’s writing style and I’ve seen only great reviews about this book, so I’m fairly confident I’ll enjoy it *fingers crossed!*

I was a little surprised to see that the store only had the fan art edition of Fangirl. I’m definitely not complaining, though! It included a couple of pieces of artwork on the inside covers, which I love.

Aren’t they gorgeous?!

So, that’s my mini book haul! Since I don’t buy books very often, I always get super excited when I do 🙂

Just a side note, I won’t be posting a WWW Wednesday this week. Also, I might not be posting much over the next few weeks, but I’ll make a full post on that tomorrow.

I hope you’re all enjoying your holidays!

    If you liked the ToG series, you’re really going to like ACOTAR. I, personally, loved it and I can’t wait for the second one, A Court of Mist and Fury, to come out on May 3, 2016. 🙂

        It’s so good, but I’m really excited for the sequel because I don’t know how she’s going to set it up so I’m anxious to read it haha
