37th MIBF – Book Haul!


Pay day + book fair is probably the worst combination for all the book lovers like me. Or nooooOOOOooooot! Because now I have new books and I totally, totally love it.

So how did I end up with these specific books?

First – I Am Malala. Ever since I have heard of this Pakistani young woman who braved through the maltreatments, the gender discrimination in their country, I became very eager to know more about her undoubtedly laudable fearlessness, especially now that she is currently the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate. She is four years younger than me and she has her convictions and principles in life as straight as a pin. I evidently need to have a meeting with my priorities.

So you see, there is more beyond my abnormal fervor for fiction books. Smiling Face With Open Mouth and Smiling Eyes

The Girl With All The Gifts and The Shining. Horror books are not usually my kind of books but I try once in awhile especially if the premise is intriguing enough.

Ready Player One. I have always been meaning to get a copy of this 5-year old book but I seem to forget about it when I go to a bookstore. And it isn’t really that visible in the bookshelves so thanks for the book fair because as soon as it caught my eye, I grabbed it. Smiling Face With Open Mouth and Smiling Eyes Who cares about poverty. (I do, of course, in the grand scheme of things. Please don’t judge me. Haha)

It’s Kind of a Funny Story, based on the reviews I have read, is a feeling book. So, naturally, I bought it. ‘Cause I like emotions.

The Zodiac Legacy. Who does not like superpowers, and superheroes, and adventures? Don’t raise your hands.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard. A J.K. Rowling book associated to HP. Duh?

And lastly, Six of Crows. Seriously? A crew of criminals? I downright dig it.

Thank you to Fully Booked for always letting me indulge myself in making myself poorer by the minute but making me deliriously blissful nonetheless. I will forever be loyal to you. Although I might cheat if goaded. Those book sales are quite evil, totally beyond my control.

  1. Ready Player One is one of my favourite books – one of the few books I have read more than once. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the movie isn’t going to be dreadful, but having seen the leaked excerpts of the script, I’m not holding out much hope.

    1. Oh. I didn’t know there will be a movie. But yeah, I’ve heard the same sentiment from friends way before. I hope I’m gonna enjoy it myself. So much looking forward to reading it :)
