Will discuss books from Top to Bottom, Left to Right.
Malice by Chris Wooding (bought) - Because I missed Wooding's stuff, and it was selling at $8.99. I'm curious about how the half-comic aspect of this novel works out. =D
Swoon by Nina Malkin (bought) - Bought this with the giftcard I got. lol a little present to myself. The forbidden aspect of this romance looks like just my thing. =D
Shine, Coconut Moon by Neesha Meminger (bought) - Because I love Meminger's blog, and I liked what I read of this novel before I was obliged to return this book back to the library or suffer fines to my account. I am definitely gonna finish this novel before Meminger comes to the T.O. signing. *determined face*
Give Up the Ghost by Megan Crewe (bought) - Because after having loved it and wrote up my review, how could I not own my own copy? =D
In My Humble Opinion Journal (present) - =DDDDDDDDDDDDD The Most Awesome Journal Ever. It's So Awesome, I Have To Talk About It With Caps On All My Words.
The Harmony Silk Factory by Tash Aw (bought) - Actually I heard some not-so-positive reviews for this novel, but any novel that has a Malaysia setting warrants a must-buy from me. Also, it was only $5.99~ =D
Usurper of the Sun by Housuke Nojiro (bought) - I finally bought a book from Viz's Haikasoru publishing line! I'm really excited about Haikasoru and am happy to support the works they put out. I read the first half of this novel and I'm really enjoying it so far. Also, the translation was good, a fluid read. =D
Outside Beauty by Cynthia Kadohata (bought) - I figured I owned all of Kadohata's other YA novels, I might as well buy this to finish off my Kadohata YA collection. =D
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian (bought) - Okay, having obsessed with this novel and raved about it in my review, I had to have it in my bookshelf.
