On My Shelf is an original feature inspired by the On My Shelf tag. Each time I will take 5 random books from my shelves and tell you about them (how I got them, what I think of them etc.), and if they are in Dutch I will write a small synopsis of them.
First of all I am sorry I am a day late, yesterday was hectic with my work and a concert in a foreign country. But let’s move on.
I will roll some dice to find out which books it will be.
Illuminae (The Illuminae Files #1) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I got Illuminae when I was on London last week. I started reading it the same day and when I left after a couple of days I was half way done already. It is so great!
The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling
I got this beautiful edition of The Jungle Book from my best friend. The cover is in my blogs cover so very approprate. I have read it some very long time ago, so I don’t know if I will like it, but I wanted to start colleting classics anyway, so it is a great start.
The Dark is Rising Series by Susan Cooper
I bought The Dark is Rising the first time I went to London, back in 2009. It is a beautiful hardcover with all 5 books in one cover. I started reading it at some point, but I can’t remember much from it.
Cruel Beauty by Roamund Hodge
I bought Cruel Beauty last summer in Tallinn. I like buying books in foreign countries. I have not had time to read it yet. But I think the synopsis is great and I am almost sure I will at least like the story.
Deja Dead (Temperance Brennan #1) by Kathy Reichs
This is the first novel on Temperance Brennan and I enjoyed it very much. I got it when I got into the Temperance books. It is weird for me, being a Bones fan, to see Temperance this way, but it also nice.
For now, let books enrich your life!
