Guess what, guys??
I didn’t forget to go to class today!! Woo hoo!! Haha, that really shouldn’t be that big a deal, but still… 🙂
Class was good! We went through some of the definitions of what abnormal psychology is and a whole bunch of introductory stuff, but I think it’ll be a good class. I’m really looking forward to it actually and the entire subject is really interesting to me, so good sign, right? Plus, I’ll be trying to look for ways I can implement these new concepts and things I learn into my writing, so that’s a bonus! 😀
Anyways, this weekend I went to my lovely independent bookshop and ended up getting a crapload of new books! I really shouldn’t have spent that much considering I’m basically broke (ah!), but apparently I have no self-control! In my defense, they were having their semi-annual sale, which is SUCH a great deal! Seriously, it’s like 30% off hardcovers; 40% off if you buy three or more–which I totally did. See what temptations I had to deal with???
And on top of all that goodness, I went to Costco, where it turned out new awesome books had come in. And I cannot resist buying books from Costco because they’re so cheap!
So, in essence, this is what happened….
Yup… That’s right, thirteen books in one weekend… Eh! Worse things have happened! 😀
I got the Mistborn Trilogy, P.S. I Still Love You; Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend; Revenge, Ice Cream, and Other Things Best Served Cold at Costco (woah, long titles) and Uprooted, The Invasion of the Tearling, The Princess Bride, Prudence, Madame Bovary, Anna Karenina,and A Thousand and One Nights at my local bookstore!
And MY GOODNESS PEOPLE!!! You absolutely MUST read Uprooted by Naomi Novik! HOLY COW! I started this book last night and I’m only on Chapter Three, but it is SO GOOD! It’s really rare that a book hooks me from that early on, but I’m so in love with this book already! Omg, I cannot get over how beautiful Uprooted is!!
I grabbed it because I’ve been hearing so many good things about it and considering I am one huge fan of fairytales/retellings, I decided I would buy it. UGGHHHHHH, it was such a good decision!! One of the ladies that works there was telling me she loved it and she was right!
It reminds me of Robin McKinley’s Beauty, but… I think might even like Uprooted even more! It’s got that same gorgeous style of writing and storytelling… I just can’t explain to you how much I love this book! I’m so excited to see what happens and for sure, I’m going to be buying all of Naomi Novik’s books!!!
So takeaway from this post: BUY UPROOTED IMMEDIATELY AND READ SO THAT I MAY HAVE SOMEONE TO OBSESS OVER IT WITH!!! 😀
Okay, Erin out!
Thanks for reading!! :)))
