2013: October Book Haul

Because getting lots of books at the Book Fair is not enough I also preordered some books that came out in October and I got a few presents too:

Bookhaul_Oct_13

+ Deeply Odd (Odd Thomas #6) by Dean Koontz

I love Odd Thomas and even if I haven’t read book #5 yet and needed to have it. 

+ Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

This has been on my wishlist since it first came out and now I finally have it.

+ The Eye of Minds (The Mortality Doctrine #1) by James Dashner

Preordered this one of course. Too bad it wasn’t as good as I hoped it would be.

+ Lexicon by Max Barry

Saw this everywhere when I was in the US and fell in love with the cover. Couldn’t resist when I found it in the bargain bin.

+ Night Film by Marisha Pessl

Very curious about this one. Got it as a birthday present and was kind of shocked how heavy it is.

+ Let Me Go (Archie Sheridan #6) by Chelsea Cain

Hate that they didn’t make a matching cover for the books I have but yay! a new Chelsea Cain book.

  • Yay for Second Chance Summer! Morgan Matson is one of my favourite YA contemporary authors and I’m already waiting for her next book to finally come out:)

  • Night Film <3 Das Buch wird dir bestimmt gefallen. Die deutsche Ausgabe ist auch so ein Mordwerkzeug, konnte das Buch kaum festhalten ^.^
    Moah, und alles Liebe nachträglich zum Geburtstag!! Ich fass es grad nicht, dass ich nicht dran gedacht habe D: Hoffe du hattest einen wunderbaren Tag!

    • Finde es aber auch toll, wie schön das dafür gemacht ist. Meine Ausgabe ist so schwer, weil das so glänzende,dickere Seiten sind, fast schon wie man das in so Bildbänden hat, nur nicht ganz so dick. Bin da auch schon richtig neugierig drauf und hab schon mehrmals bisschen durch geblättert :D

  • Second Chance Summer was a lovely read! I hope you like it! Great titles you have here! The Eye Of Minds is a book I’ve been seeing around often lately and I’m rather curious about it. I’ve only ever read James Dashner once (The Maze Runner) and I liked his writing then. I’m sorry to hear his new book disappointed you. :c

  • Second Chance Summer is a favourite contemporary of mine, so I hope you enjoy it too.
