Today, I want to share with you my latest book haul (books and audiobooks which I purchased in January and February). Some of these I have read or started to read, others are joining the ever growing pile of "to-reads". I will endeavour to do some book reviews here for some of them, and also will aim to do a book haul blog post monthly from now on (because, let's be honest, there is generally at least one book bought most months!).
I watched the movie which was inspired by this book last year, and loved it. I found it inspiring, with a simple beauty. I am aware that the storyline of the book is quite different from the movie, but I look forward to reading it. I just hope I am not disappointed! I usually read books before movies, but as I loved the movie so much, I hold high expectations for the book!
"Where She Went" by Gayle Forman
"Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon
I watched the first 8 episodes of the tv series inspired
by this book last year. I think that it is an amazing series, and highly recommend it. I am desperate for the next episode to air after a break in filming. In the meantime, I thought I would read the book to keep me going! It is part of an eight book series, and as the tv series has been granted several seasons, I aim to read these books while I
eagerly await their release.
"The Bone Season" by Samantha Shannon
I listened to this as an audiobook in 2013, and really enjoyed it. I decided to read the actual book before reading the second book in the series which has just been released. It is a great story of another world, filled with drama, intrigue, strength and friendship.
"The Hambledown Dream" by Dean Mayes
I bought another copy of this book because my mum and I both wanted to re-read it for our book club review this month. I think this is a great book, and highly recommend you read it. You can read my thoughts about it on the Glimpsing Gembles Online Book Club site, and also join in with the discussion!
I would love to hear what you have bought so far this year to read or listen to!
