December Awesome Book Haul

Another book haul in the month of December. I'm not sure if I'm going to add more book but for now, these are the books that I have bought and won from giveaway that I've had entered early this month.

Anyway, let's the haul begins.



#Books I've Bought From Popular RM5 Fiesta

Not buying much during the fiesta, because, I don't know, I don't find something that really really caught my heart. Hence, only two books.

December Awesome Book Haul


1. Solitaire by Alice Oseman

Genre : Young Adult, Contemporary, Mystery

Synopsis 

" I don't ever remember not being serious. As far as I'm concerned, I came out of the womb spouting cynicism and wishing for rain."

My name is Tori Spring. I like to sleep and I like to blog. Last year I had friends. Things were very different, I guess, but that's all over now.

Now there's Solitaire. And Michael Holden.

I don't know what Solitaire are trying to do. And I don't care about Michael Holden. I really don't.


I know nothing about this book. I just pick up this novel, because the cover is beautiful. Just by reading their synopsis, it looks like quite a nice story. I will save this book for next month to be read.

 3. Animalcolm by David Baddiel

Genre : Middle Grade

Synopsis

Malcolm Doesn't Like Animals.

Which is a problem because his family love them. Their house is full of pets. What the house is NOT full of is stuff Malcolm likes. Such as the laptop he wanted for his birthday.

The only bright spot on the horizon is the Year Six school trips, to...oh no. A farm.

Over the next few days, Malcolm changes. He learns what it's really like to be an animal. A whole series of animals, in fact....

It does make him think differently. And speak differently. And eat differently. And, um, smell differently. But will he end up the same before?


Let's appreciate the cover of this middle grade novel. Its so beautiful. Love it. Its been awhile, since, I read, children's book, and I couldn't wait to read this soon.

Darcy Patel is afraid to believe all the hype. But it's really happening - her teen novel is getting published. Instead of heading to college, she's living in New York City, where she's welcomed into a dazzling world of YA publishing.

With survival comes the responsibility to guide the restless spirits that walk our world, including one ghost with whom she shares a surprising personal connection.

# Book I've Bought From MPH


December Awesome Book Haul


6. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

Genre : Young Adult, fantasy, Horror, Contemporary

Synopsis

The monster showed up after midnight. As they do.

But it isn't the monster Conor's been expecting. He's been expecting the one from his nightmare, the one he's nearly every night since his mother started her treatments, the one with darkness and the wind and the screaming...

This monster is something different, thought. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor.

It wants the truth.

❉ My sister really recommended to me this book. She's said the book is amazing. Now, I can't wait to read it before going to watch this at cinemas soon.
