So for those of you who don’t know prior to this blog I used to blog under the same name on blogger (it now redirects here so, sorry, but you can’t check it out) from 2011.
I thought it would be interesting to go back and view my first ever haul posts to see what books I got and whether or not I ever read them.
This was only a small haul and I didn’t even write anything about obtaining these books. I’m guessing that I quickly purchased the rest of The Hunger Games trilogy because I was enjoying the first so much. I also recall my Dad purchased A Whisper of Blood for me and had a lot of trouble even finding a copy – does anyone know why?
Water for Elephants was borrowed from the library for my college book club and I enjoyed it more than expected.
The two marvel graphic novels were part of magazine collection but my Dad stopped purchasing after the first two due to its heavy price tag. I’ve moved the Spider-Man one to my to sell/trade book shelf as I’m unlikely to ever read it but I’ve kept Dark Phoenix because she’s my fave.
Genus and The Night Circus I picked up eCopies of as they were on sale. The latter I read for a GoodReads book club and loved it! But I never read Genus even though the cover is still really appealing to me.
