I didn't even do a meme last month so since I am breaking up from college soon, I hope to acquire more books and do more memes on the blog. Anyhow, these are some books I got within the last week.

- Pretties by Scott Westerfeld - I read Uglies (review) last month and loved the idea and story behind it especially as it's taken me years to pick up this series of books. When I went to give Uglies back to the library, I noticed Pretties there, which is the next book in the series. I've heard a mixture of reviews for the sequel but I hope it lives up to its predecessor. 

- Strings Attached by Judy Blundell - I read Judy Blundell's other YA novel, What I Saw and How I Lied (review) a few years ago which I liked but not as much as I thought I would. I discovered her newest book when I was doing The Great Gatsby in English Lit and found out it was set in the 1920's. I reserved it but it only came to my local library recently. The plot sounds a lot like Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen (review)

- War Horse by Michael Morpurgo - I'd been wanting to re-read this for a while since I saw and loved the movie adaptation in January but failed to get a copy. I was in a charity shop yesterday and happened to wander over to the children's books so see what they had, not expecting much, and found a BRAND NEW copy for £1. Right place at the right time? 

Have you read any of these books? What did you think? What books did you get this week? 


  1. I really enjoyed Strings Attached, hope you like it! :)

  2. The “Pretties” is quite catchy, and I’m captivated with the cover itself. Now I have an idea on what to do during my free time this coming weekend. I should invite my other friends to read that when I’m done. Though, I hope I can finish it within a month. Hehe. Aww, being busy is sure tiring, isn’t it? Good thing I saw this list of yours. =)
