I wasn’t having such a great work week so I thought it would be a good idea to drop by the bookstore to cheer myself up. Also, I still have gift vouchers I received last Christmas and I wanted to use them. I saw four books that I was interested in but since they’re a lot more expensive here, I decided to just get these two lovelies:
Just One Day by Gayle Forman (SGD 14.87)
A Face Like Glass by Frances Hardinge (SGD 25.89)
As you all know, I’ve been wanting to get a copy of Just One Day since it was released so I’m really looking forward to reading this. I’m trying to decide if I should start it already or wait until the weekend so I can read it in one day. I read and loved The Lost Conspiracy and I’ve been meaning to read more of Frances Hardinge’s books but I just haven’t gotten the chance. A Face Like Glass has an intriguing premise and I’ve seen it pop up in other bloggers’ best of 2012 lists.
Looking forward to reading these two books! I’m not planning to borrow any books from the library until after we’ve moved to the new flat so I’m sticking with books that I own for now. I also got this cellphone cover that has a bookish design:
What about you, have you bought any interesting books or other bookish items lately?
