Hi everyone! It's Elisa!
I posted my most recent book haul on my Instagram a couple of days ago, but I thought it might be cool to post it on here a well! Let me know in the comments below if you'd like me to post more non-review blog posts, like this! Also, don't forget to follow me on Instagram @the.overflowing.bookshelf !
Okay without further ado: my book haul!
I bought all of these from Barnes and Nobles and just got them the other day! Below is a brief synopsis of each book and the reason why I bought it:
Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen McManus~ Ellery’s aunt went missing when she was seventeen and now another girl has gone missing. She knows her grandma and mom are hiding secrets, but she soon realizes that everyone in their small town is hiding something.
Reason: I loved McManus’s debut novel (see my review here:
https://www.theoverflowingbookshelf.com/home/the-breakfast-club-with-a-murderous-twist) and was super excited to read another thriller/mystery from her!
Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott~ Two cystic fibrosis patients fall in love but how can they be together if they have to be six feet apart from one another at all times?
Reason: I saw the movie trailer and it looked really good plus it’s giving me some TFIOS vibes...
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black~ A human girl living in a Faerie kingdom must form a dangerous alliance in order to protect her sisters and all of the High Court of Faerie while also gaining the respect of the reigning prince
Reason: I’ve never read a Holly Black book but I’ve always wanted to and one of my best friends recommended it to me!
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell ~ This mashup of a romance, fantasy, ghost story, and mystery follows Simon Snow: a student at a magic school as he’s trying to (and is currently failing at) being “The Chosen One”
Reason: I loved Eleanor & Park and keep seeing all the hype over the sequel that’s coming out soon so I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon!
Miracle in the Mundane by Tyler Knott Gregson~ A compilation of poems, prompts, and motivation to unleash your creative side from the poet famous for his book, Chasers of the Light.
Reason: I loved Chasers of the Light and I really would like to get more into modern poetry!
I’m so excited to start reading these books! Let me know which of these interested you the most! If not, which book should I add to my next book haul?
Hi! My name is Elisa and my bookshelf is quite literally overflowing! Join me in my journey of reading as many books as humanly possible!
