Fiction Friday: Relatively Small Book Haul

Hello everyone, I have a haul for you today! It’s only four books since I try not to buy books in large quantities. For my wallet’s sake. Anyway, let’s get started!

1 – Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick

First-ish Impressions: I’m almost done reading this book and I’m really enjoying it! I’m not going to even attempt to explain the plot because it is extremely complex but I will say that it has several story lines that interweave. It’s very strange and a bit creepy but If you like that sort of thing, check it out!

2 – Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler, Art by Maria Kalman

First Impressions: For those who don’t know Daniel Handler is the same person as Lemony Snicket so being a huge fan of A Series of Unfortunate Events I had to check this out. Why We Broke Up explores the causes of a couples break up. What’s especially awesome about this book is that there’s illustrations of objects from their relationship and the following chapter is about that object. (Or, at least that’s what i’ve come to understand. I haven’t read the book yet ^-^)

3 – Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen

First Impressions: I don’t know anything about the plot of this book but I kind of want to keep it that way. I feel like it’s going to be one of those books that are better when you go in blind. But for the sake of a first impression, I will say that I think the cover is really beautiful. Half the reason I bought the book was because of the cover.

4 – Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

First Impressions: Christine (PolandBannanasBooks) loves this book so obviously I had to buy it. I’m having a hard time describing this book on my own so let me just paste the description. “It was Sloane who yanked Emily out of her shell and made life 100% interesting. But right before what should have been the most epic summer, Sloane just…disappears. All she leaves behind is a to-do list”. I’m excited to read this when I’m in a lighter contemporary mood.

Any suggestions on which I should after I finish Midwinterblood.
