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.
I will roll some dice to find out which books it will be.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber
It got to my copy in the mail last Thursday, two days late for its release. It made me really sad about the service of my online supplier. And I even consider going to a different store. But since they all have deliverytimes, it did not give me much in getting the book earlier since I pre-ordered it a month ago. I did not get to read it yet, but I hope to do so soon.
A Presence of Abscence by Emma Vestrheim and Sarah Surgey
I received A Presence of Abscence today in the mail as an ARC from Emma and Sarah! I have read several pages already and really want to read more, which is what I am doing this weekend
The Fall (Assassin’s Creed #1) by Brenden Fletscher
I bought this comic a couple of years ago on a games and comic convention. I never read it, because I was to busy reading other things, but last weekend I read it and kind of thought it was okay, but I liked the games much better.
Beginnings (Lux #1 & #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
I bought this book over a year ago, so I had something to read at work. I heard all these great things about it, so I wanted it. I actually finished reading the first novel in this bindup, and did not love it, maybe even not like it. I am right now reading the second one, but I am still not liking it. I think I might decide not to read the last three novels in this series.
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
I bought this book last year, I don’t remember when exactly, but I never started reading it. I did so a couple of days ago for a read-a-thon this month and finished it within 24 hours, that’s how much I liked it. It was funny and real. And as romances go, the worst romance novel ever, but I liked that about it. Because it was even real in the love department.
For now, let books enrich your life!
