I haven’t been putting up IMM posts lately because I’m trying to limit my book buying. But then last Friday, I realized that I still have a couple of bookstore gift cards that I received from friends for my birthday so I thought it would be a good idea to splurge. I bought the first three using gift cards and the last one was 20% off from a different bookstore:
Chasing Brooklyn by Lisa Schroeder – I think it was Holly of Book Harbinger who recommended this. I got so excited when I saw that it’s now available in paperback! I’ve wanted to read this but wasn’t convinced if I should splurge on the hardcover and viola, problem solved.
Far from You by Lisa Schroeder – Saw this beside Chasing Brooklyn and both the cover and the premise looked interesting and it’s another novel in verse so I got it as well.
The Cardturner: A Novel about a King, a Queen, and a Joker by Louis Sachar – This one comes highly recommended by Brandy of Random Musings of a Bibliophile and it’s a book about bridge! It may seem weird but I got hooked on bridge back in college because my classmates and I played it during breaks. I haven’t played bridge in ages and I’m not even sure if I still know the rules.
So excited to read all of these! I wonder when I’ll get around to them though? I noticed that all of them are contemporary reads and that rarely happens when I buy a bunch of books. I usually throw in a fantasy book in there. What about the rest of you, what did you get in your mailbox?
