I’m a little bit late, I know (sorry about that), but here you have all the books that I got in February :)
First of all, my lovely friends gave me Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods by Rick Riordan, as a belated christmas gift. :D
If you saw my February wrap-up, you know that I read it last month, and it did not disappoint. :)
The only problem (yes, a problem) was for me to find a place on my bookshelf for this gorgeous monster of a book. A real pain in the neck, let me tell you.
I can live with that, though. ;)
They also painted me this awesome little thing. I’m aware that it is, in fact, not a book, but I wanted to show it to you anyway. :)
They did not come up with the print themselves, though, and you can get the real/original mug here. :)
The first book I bought myself, was Fairest by Marissa Meyer, the 222 page long prequel to The Lunar Chronicles.
I wasn’t 100 % sure at first whether or not to get this one, but as you can see, I did, and I ended up really enjoying it. It’s far from as good as the rest of the books, and you definitely don’t HAVE to read it, but I’m certainly glad I did. It gave a nice insight on Levana and her motives, without making her any less of a villain.
Seriously, she is freaking insane and delusional, and I must say that I have no sympathies for her at all.
Ah, true beauty.
Then, of course, I got The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead, the last book in the Bloodlines-series.
To be completely honest, I was a bit disappointed by this book. I found it a bit too cheesy and “perfect”, if you know what I mean, but I still did enjoy it, and it was a pretty nice ending to the series.
I don’t fully understand the name, though. Did I miss something? (I understand the ruby-part, but not not the circle)
And now I have them all! Thank godness the spines look nice, because the covers are still freaking hideous.
As you can see, I now finally own a copy of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen!
This GORGEOUS edition is from Mr. Boddington’s Penguin Classics, and for ages I thought it would be out of stock forever. Then, boom, there it was, and I simply had to order it.
(It has deckled edges and a ribbon bookmark!)
It is sadly not available at the moment, though, and I’m not sure whether or not it will be again.
Last, but certainly not least, I got A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab.
I had such high expectations for this book, and I would be lying if I said that it reached them 100 %, but it was still really good. :) Can’t wait for the sequel!
Oh, and if they change the cover, I will have to retort to murder.
Seriously, though, no one in the history of the universe has had as great luck with her covers as Victoria Schwab.
A Darker Shade of Magic arrived after I had taken this picture so that’s why it’s not in the pile, but I just thought you might want to see the size difference. :) Pride and Prejudice is, as you can probably see, sliiiightly shorter, and Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods is A LOT taller than “normal” hardcovers.
But yeah, that was it. :) Now it’s your turn. :) Did you get any books in February? Anything good? Feel free to tell me about it down in the comments.
Your shelf is really beautifull!
Thank you! :)
Those books are so BEAUTIFUL!
They are, aren’t they…*happy sigh*
Gosh your pictures are amazing!~
Thank you :D
I still need to read Cinder. I feel liked everyone has read this book, except me. Also I just started Bloodlines :)
And I LOVE the mug.
Btw I nominated you for the “Very Inspiring Blogger” Award. Check out my post here. Hope you enjoy doing this :)
*chanting* do it, do it, do it…
Ooh, I hope you’re enjoying it :).
Thank you! That’s so lovely of you :D
Hello! I’m also from Sweden! Wuup wup! I was just wondering, where do you buy your books? I usually order from sites but am wondering if you have any recommendations? (:
Hello fellow Swedish person. :) I usually order my books from adlibris or the book depository, depending on which one is the cheapest. :) I pretty much never buy books from physical bookstores, I just go there to browse. :)
