I had the awesome chance to stop by Half Price Books the other day. I was looking for a used java manual. I didn’t come across any that would help, because we’re running Java 10 and the most updated book was for 6, but I decided to tak a look around anyway, and I found quite a few novels in the Ya section. They had a whole slew of L.J. Smith collections, but I’m specificallly looking for Dark Visions and they never have it! I read it from the library once when I was younger, after finishing the original run of Vampire Diaries, and I fell in love, I must have checked it out several times after it, and even after all this time, I still remember specific sections of the novels. I need to add it to my collection.
I want to have my own collection of books, even though I read way too fast to make it viable. I’ll have read the books and then they sit there, unless I want to read them again? Where as getting them from the library costs no money unless you’re late to return them and then you move on. I feel like Half Price Books is the perfect alternative, because when you’re done with them you can even sell them back! Plus, they’re super affordable to begin with!
I picked up The Fallen Series part one, which includes The Fallen and Leviathan by Thomas Sniegoski. I remember the terrible mini series on Abc Family, I’m hoping that it is super loosely based on the books, and that the books will be better, because 90% of the time it’s true. Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, because I’ve watched the movie 80 bajillion times and I really love it, and if a movie based off a book is really good then generally the book is great.
Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer by Alender because Look at that title, what more could you need? Generation Dead by Daniel Waters, at this point I had been looking at books that either dealt with death, supernatural creatures or the undead, why not continue? Finally, I picked up Swoon by Nina Malkin, which is presented as a super dark, and twisted love story between a psychic teen and a vengeful spirit who takes over her cousins body. Yeah, I definitely don’t need to delve any deeper with that one. Also needless to say, I’m currently reading Swoon.
I went out with my friend Robin the other day, we ended up at Walmart, and they had a copy of Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur, which I’ve had my eyes on for a while. I had to pick it up before it slipped away again, and I proceeded to finish it in an hour. It’s a book of poetry split into four parts, Hurt, Love, Healing, and Relationships. It was so good, but it made me kind of sad as well.
My favorite line is “Our backs tell stories no books have the spines to carry.”
