I’ve acquired some books and a new Kindle recently, so I thought I would share!
Persuasion by Jane Austen: I’ve been meaning to read more Austen and I’ve heard such great things about this one. I got the Penguin Deluxe Edition because it seemed both thorough and pretty, and while it is an even nicer product than I expected (it had deckled edges and French flaps), there aren’t footnotes…though there is an introduction.
And now for the ebooks, which were all bought on deals:
George by Alex Gino: This is still $2.99, by the way! This has been a really breakout middle grade debut about a fourth-grade trans girl and I’ve been meaning to read it but wasn’t sure what format to read it in. Ultimately, this deal means I’ll read it sooner rather than later…and I actually started reading it and I’m enjoying it! (Actually, because it’s so short, I’m almost a quarter of the way in.)
The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber: This has been on my list because Jen Campbell on YouTube loves it so much, and I’ve been wanting to read more contemporary literary fiction. So when I saw the deal, I couldn’t ignore it. It’s about a man who travels to another planet (I think) as a missionary, so it sounds like there should be plenty of interesting discussions in there.
Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld: This was a deal as well, and while this wasn’t one of the YA series I was most interested in, I do love history and I do particularly love World War One (and everything that led up to it).So upon reading the summary again, I decided I’ll definitely give it a shot for the historical references!
