So this week has passed by FAST sleeping and going to London mostly. However, it was my 17th birthday last week and as I'm apparently 'oh so hard to buy for' - guess what the majority of my presents were? BOOKS!
This week also marked the first hard copy book received by a publisher to be reviewed which I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT. Ironically, it arrived around my blogoversary which was on the 17th. Two whole years of Rebecca-Books - such a crazy thought.
Given (for my birthday):
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery - As my friend said: Because every child should read this book
Jane Austen Stole My Boyfriend by Cora Harrison - AHH, this is the sequel to the amazing first book of Cora Harrison, I was Jane Austen's Best Friend - here's my review
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan - Need I explain?
Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson - I was talking to my friend about this book and said it looked interesting and I wanted to read it (me thinking of borrowing from library) but my friend had other plans and the next day, turned up with this for my birthday - no complains.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - you will not believe how irritating it is to be an English blogger sometimes. Seeing every single American book blogger I follow review this and rave on and on about it - quite annoying. Anyway, I slightly screamed when I saw this in my friend's book store where she works. However, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS 3 FOR 2, I refrained from buying it and it turned up the next day with Amy & Roger. I love my friend (I assure you I did not buy it for you to get it - I merely was not sure about buying it and couldn't find a 3rd book...)
The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan - I started this one a couple of days ago - SO sweet so far.
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi - this is the first hard copy from a publisher. I know I'm going on and on but I'm just pretty happy that this happened. I want to go into publishing eventually and with this happening and the blog being successful, it makes my dream job look more and more likely - hopefully.
Have a good week!
