This Week’s New Books

If you’re wondering why I’m not linking this post up, check out this or this post.

This week has been SO busy! I went for dinner with my boyfriend, went to a Biffy Clyro concert and went to a ballet with my mom. And in between some uni and working on papers. After finishing Parasite I’ve been in a bit of a slump, but I’m reading Allegiant now and this might be the book that can get me out of it (:

  • Gargantua and Pantagruel by Francois Rabelais – Renaissance book for school and holy shizness, this book is HUGE!
  • Allegiant by Veronica Roth – Huzzah, Allegiant finally arrived! I’m reading this today, and I hope to finish it as quickly as possible to dodge any spoilers
  • Substitute Creature by Charles GIlman – I have to say, one of the creepiest covers in this series so far [review copy from publisher]

Have you read any of these? What new books did you get this week?

    That cover for Substitute Creature… It’s just… Freaky & very scary but completely awesome! I can’t help but laugh every time look at her face, I hope you enjoy it :0)

    And you have Allegiant, there have been some very mixed views surrounding this book but I do hope you enjoy it.

    Moonlight @ Once Upon a Moonlight Review…

      I totally looked at it for ten minutes, laughing at it. It’s so creepy but absurd xD

      Allegiant is… different. It was not what I was expecting it to be

    That cover for Substitute Creature is very creepy! I hope the story lives up to it.

      The story was really spooky! I love the Lovecraft Middle School books (:

    The cover for Substitute Creature is a riot. I read Divergent when it came out, but I’m going to have to reread it and work my way through the trilogy in one shot.

      Ha, isn’t it? Hope you’ll like the rest of Roth’s books

    Wow that Substitute cover is really creepy! I really like the covers for the series though. I hope you enjoy Allegiant!

      They’re all awesome (: Although this is one of my favourites. Thanks Michelle!

    Oo, how’s Allegiant? I’m trying to stay out of all the drama that’s going on Twitter (as usual) and avoid reading the reviews but it seems that people have really strong feelings about it for some reason (some good, some bad).

    And yay for the ballet! I love ballets. 🙂

      Allegiant was meh. I didn’t like it much, although that had nothing to do with the ending and all to do with the terrible worldbuilding that was going on.

      The ballet was so cool! They had this roaring 20s vibe going on, it was awesome
