Currently, it is Christmas afternoon approximately 2 hours before I have to go and hang out with my family for a Christmas dinner, so I figured why not get my blog post done a bit early so I don’t have to worry about it a bit later. So here I am, quietly typing away while watching my younger siblings yell at each other over the Nintendo switch. Yep, that’s my life whenever we get a “family” gift. Enough about me though, today I decided I’d showcase off all of the books I got from my family as well as my close friends and neighbors.
The Stormlight Archives
This was one I wasn’t expecting at all, to say the least. Because I have amazing parents that listen to me ramble on about how I don’t have enough money for books anymore, they decided to “Invest” per say and buy me the first 3 books in The Stormlight Archives by Brandon Sanderson. For those of you who don’t know, I happen to ADORE Brandon’s writing and when I found out that he had written more after his book Mistborn, I became obsessed with his stories. Unfortunately, that obsession ceased to exist after I found out that the first three books out are each at least 1000 pages.
1000 pages= 35 BUCKS A PIECE!
35+35+35= A LOT!
(I can math really well)
When you’re an unemployed 15-year-old teen, the only money you earn is from your birthday, or from your neighbors, this is kinda a considerable amount of money.
BUT I GOT IT! I GOT IT!
As of right now, I’m currently on page 68 of The Way of Kings, book one in the Stormlight Archive, and are thoroughly enjoying it. The fight scenes are already amazing, and I can tell this book will be one I’ll most certainly never forget
Wonder Woman: Warbringer
Easily at the top of my most anticipated releases of 2017, Wonder Woman: Warbringer is finally in my hands. This book is one of those that I had on my Goodreads list for a long time but ended up being forgotten in my quest to re-read all of the Harry Potter books this last month.
So, when my mom saw this at the store, she knew I wanted this really bad and managed to snag it for me as a present for Christmas. To be honest, Now that I have it in my hands, I’m more than ready to dive back into the amazing world of the Amazons
Prince of Chaos
This one came also came as a total surprise this year. Every year, I feel like I don’t get as many books as the last mainly because my family is sorta sick of buying me a book that I’ve already read. The past couple years they’ve gotten amazingly good and given me books that I’ve never heard of, but I end up loving them after I finish. This year was no exception. My Grandpa has been VERY good at giving me books I’ve never heard of, that end up surpassing my expectations greatly!
That’s It! Short and sweet, I know it’s not a lot, but I’m only just beginning. Right now, I’m currently trying to find a way how to buy all of my most anticipated reads of 2018! Thank’s for everything, Have a HAPPY NEW YEAR! Make sure to let me know if you’ve read any of these books, and if not, let me know what you got this year for Christmas in the comments below!
Until next time, READ ON!
