As promised..these are the books I purchased on Monday!!!
For Christmas I was given a $100 gift voucher from Angus and Robertson. My purchases were as follows
* THe lovely Bones by Alice Sebold- after so many good comments about this book i thought it was about time I read it :)
* I have a bed made of buttermilk pancakes by Jaclyn Moriarty - I absolutely love this book!! Read it so many times. It has quirky bits, is really easy to read and an interesting fun story.
* Dreaming of Amelia by Jaclyn Moriarty - This is a book aimed at a younger audience than the above. Most of the books Jaclyn Moriarty had written are aimed at the young adult market - the most well known being Feeling Sorry for Celia. And again..has quirky bits to it - accroding to the blurb the story is told through the gothic fiction elective of an HSC english exam (HSC is the set of exams you do in your final year of school in NSW, Australia). Looks like fun :)
* I also bought two Manga comics that I had read when in early high school and enjoyed. I was disappointed thouhg because they had reversed the comics so they read like normal engligh novels instead of the back to front nature of manga comics.
As Angus and Robertson did not have Elegance of the Hedgehog I decided to go find it in Borders which is ten times bigger. They had sold out :( :( :( so instead I bought
* The poisonwood bible by Barbara Kingsolver - I bought this as I had really liked The Lacuna and had heard that this book is pretty good too :)
What does everyone think?
