Library Haul #1

library haul

Ketchup Clouds, Annabel Pitcher (2012)
I'd been meaning to pick this one up after reading lots of positive reviews over the last few month. With a mysterious premise and such an intriguing title I couldn't resist seeing what the fuss is all about. I can tell you (since I finished it earlier this week) it made me view books with a letter format - something I usually dislike - differently.

Eleanor & Park, Rainbow Rowell (2013)
After reading Fangirl last month I felt that it was about time I gave in and picked up Rainbow Rowell's most popular novel Eleanor & Park. Usually I wouldn't opt for this one but I just can't ignore so many amazing reviews, fingers crossed I'll be pleasantly surprised!

Quiet: The Power Of Introverts In A World That Won't Stop Talking, Susan Cain (2012)
As the only non-fiction book in this haul Quiet promises to be an interesting read and one that has been on my TBR list for some time. Thank you to Ria for reminding me that I needed to pick this one up!

Everlost, Neal Shusterman (2006)
This one is the last book left to cross off the list of five I vowed to read in 2013 over at Blogger's Bookshelf back in January. I started reading it in October and so far I have found it really difficult to get into, even though the premise is an interesting one. I will definitely be revisiting it later this month for a second attempt!

Gossip Girl, Cecily von Ziegesar (2002)
Since I've been re-watching/watching (I'd not seen all of the episodes before) the TV show recently I thought I might as well pick up one of the novels and although I'm not a huge fan of the show I do enjoy finding out how film & TV adaptations compare to the original books.

Let It Snow, John Green, Maureen Johnson & Lauren Myracle (2008)
I'm not the biggest Christmas fan so I guess all I can say about this one is that its my attempt to get into the festive spirit! Whether I'll actually read it is questionable...

Have you read any of these books?
