NOW LOOK AT ALL THE PRETTY BOOKS! :)
This is my first book haul post of the year (and EVER) but I've always wanted to share to you guys a couple of memorable books that I've gotten recently and why each book is special! They've been sitting on my shelf for a while now and I thought today would be the best time to finally write a post about these lovely books, as it is the first day of the year - at least according to the Chinese calendar.
GONG XI FA CAI, btw! :)
1. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
I purchased Eleanor & Park at the MIBF (Manila International Book Festival) a day after I read it on my Kindle. I rarely buy actual hardcopies of books if I already have purchased the said book on my Kindle, but Eleanor & Park was a rare gem that deserved to be in my Kindle and my shelf. Ergo, this book will always hold a special place in my heart! (See Review)
2. Where'd You Go Bernadette? by Maria Semple
This book isn't technically mine. It's actually my friend, Eirene's. She bought it at the MIBF with me too, and lent it to me a week after. I liked the book so much that I kept 'forgetting' to return it. HAHAHAHA Okay, I will return this maybe soon. Hopefully.
