This Week’s New Books

If you’re wondering why I’m not having an IMM – read this post.

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.

For Review:

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!
