… Rachel and I bought more books.
I don’t remember every buying this many books in a month before! I mean, yes, we did have a few gift cards (mainly Rachel) from Christmas and I had gotten a free gift card due to using my Barnes and Noble credit card often enough, but I’m sure it’s because of Rachel and me that Barnes and Noble stayed in business this month.
Anyways, the three books that I bought this past weekend all have to do with magic and have very pretty covers!
(I wholeheartedly agree with the “don’t judge a book by its cover” in regards to people, but let’s be real, everyone judges books on their covers.)
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard is about those with magic that differs from the norm. These magics differ from person to person, such as someone who is able to tell truth from lies is called a Truthwitch. Caraval is by Stephanie Garber and is about a dangerous carnaval game. It reminded me of Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus, prompting me to pick it up. The Book Jumper by Mechthild Glaser is about one who has the power to “jump” into a story and interact with its world. Be honest, how many of us have always wanted this ability?
Has anyone else read these books or have some other new books they want to share?
