So today I got back from my week long trip to England. This was my first time travelling with no parents and so of course I was super responsible and decided that I wasn’t going to sleep before having to ride to the airport at 1am with my dad meaning I’m running on 2 hours of sleep from my nap earlier and I’ve been awake since 7am yesterday.
I also took this opportunity with no supervision to purchase more books because of course I did. I didn’t have much space what with travelling with only my backpack and a carry on suitcase so I couldn’t go too overboard but I did come home with three new paperbacks and a new graphic novel:
Also can I just say that going into a bookshop was like walking into heaven!
The Graphic novel I bought was from WHSmith and it’s actually the only one I actually bought myself with my own money and that was Spider-Man/Deadpool, Vol. 1: Isn’t it Bromantic written by Joe Kelly and Illustrated by Ed McGuinness.
Deadpool & Spider-Man in one. Of course when I saw this I was going to buy it. This is one of five I believe and they’re not exactly cheap so this will probably be a very expensive series.
And now onto the three books my aunt bought for me and we were there in the line arguing over who was going to buy these three books.
The first I picked up was S.T.A.G.S by M.A. Bennett. I discovered this on Amazon last month while I was scrolling late at night and dreaming of all those books I wanted to read and it peaked my interest. Although I cant remember the exact plot but it seems like some sort of YA mystery thriller type thing which I’m always interested in so I cant wait to read this.
Then I picked up Wonder Woman Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo. This was a Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price deal and I’ve been wanting this for a while but the Hardback edition is expensive on Amazon and the description of the paperback version keeps coming up in Spanish and yes I could probably get by in Spanish but I’d prefer to read in English.
And then lastly this book I bought for half price because of the deal thing and that was One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus. I’ve seen mixed reviews of this. I know there are a lot of complaints about these characters being very stereotypical. I got this anyways though because I want to form my own opinion on it even if this isn’t a great book and I don’t end up enjoying it. Also the pages are red and it looks cool.
I spent a lot less money while I was over there then I thought I would. All these new books really weighed down my bag while I was traipsing around Leeds Bradford at 5am this morning running hyped up on redbull and lack of sleep. Now all I need to do is find space on my bookshelf.
