I didn't buy any physical books this week, but I forgot two in my haul last week that I'd gotten in Belgium! So here they are, along with my new ebooks.
Generally I didn't get very far with my for-fun reading this week. I delved into literature I need for my MA thesis, so I'm almost done with H.G. Wells' Island of Doctor Moreau and got some secondary literature reading done.
The Scar Boys, by Len Vlahos
I read some reviews of this one by a few blogger friends and when I saw it was still on Netgalley, I snagged it.
Bought in Belgium
Death: The Hight Cost of Living, by Neil Gaiman / Dave McKean
The Gargoyle, by Andrew Davidson
I'd wanted Death for a while but it's hard to find around here, so when I came across it in a comic store in Antwerp, I needed it!
The Gargoyle I got in a second hand books store in the same city. A friend recommended it to me back when it came out so I thought it was about time I gave it a try. I read the beginning on hte plane back home and I know why he wanted me to have it. The narrator isn't anything like what I've read before and the prose is both literary and unapologetically direct at the same time.
Maya's Notebook, by Isabel Allende
Season of the Witch, by Natasha Mostert
Season of the Witch was a spontaneous buy, I saw that Lexxie from (Un)conventional Book Reviews had it in her haul last week, checked it out, read a sample, and was hooked! The mixture of hacking, mental powers, magic, and a gothic mansion... I couldn't resist.
This is it from me :) What did you get in the past week? Also, I'll be posting a giveaway for some signed swag later today, and it's international - so check back here ;)
