This Week’s New Books
There are so many new “Look at my new books!” memes that I’m having troubles choosing. I know a few of the hosts personally and I don’t feel like picking teams on this one. So, I introduce my own conglomeration of all the memes out there! If you’re hosting a similar meme or if one of your friends hosts one, let me know and I’ll add their graphic (:
Since joining the Classics Club I’ve been taking time every week to read some classics along with my usual reads for review. It seems to have been the little push I needed to get back into my reading & blogging routine, since now I have already scheduled four reviews for the next two weeks, while normally I’d have none! I might have just been burned out from reading only young-adult books for so long, that I needed something a bit more heavy to interest me. Well, you don’t hear me complaining!

We read a small out-take from The Trial in class, and since I need it for another class in half a year I decided to buy it. I already finished it, so my thoughts on it will be posted soon (:
Another book for class. It looks a bit scary, the footnotes are actually longer than the stories themselves.
And yet another one for class. I’m quite interested to read Paradise Lost, I enjoyed some epic poems from Dutch literature, and I’m looking forward to see how Milton’s work compares.
Thanks to Netgalley and Atria Books for providing this review copy. Seduction by M.J. Rose sounded very interesting, and I love the cover. I had no idea this was part of a series, but as far as I can tell the books can be read separately. It’s a mix of paranormal, mystery and historical fiction, and I’m looking forward to see if it works!
Thanks to Netgalley and Harlequin Teen for providing this review copy. I seemed to be the only one that wasn’t head over heels with The Immortal Rules, but I did enjoy it. When The Eternity Cure became available on Netgalley I decided to see how Allison’s adventure continues.
Thanks to The Book Depository for providing this review copy. Zombies! I love the tag line “Everything’s better with zombies – not”. Will read this very soon!
