I splurged on adult books again! This is what happens when I’m not allowed to buy YA – I go insane in the charity shops. Seriously, I sort of black out and next thing I know I’m walking down the road with two bags and an empty purse.
In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren every week. Here is what I bought from the charity shop.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling
Yes, I know this is a YA book and is going against my ban. But I’ve already read it and it was just £1 in the charity shop, so I don’t think it breaks my ban. I have the adult edition of this, and I just needed this one to match the rest of my set. So, I bought it!
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
This is a post-apocalyptic novel (as if you didn’t know!) about a father and son. I’ve been wanting to read it for ages, and I’ve heard the relationship between the father and son is really touching.
Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier
I’ve seen the movie for this, starring Jude Law, and I really enjoyed it. Of course, when I saw this for just £1 I had to get it!
The Vanished Man by Jeffery Deaver
This is the fifth book in the Lincoln Rhyme series, written by the bloke who wrote The Bone Collector. I plan on reading them in order, but this was the only one of the series in the shop. I’ve heard Deaver’s books are fantastic, so I look forward to reading it!
The Lost World by Michael Crichton
You should all know by know that I absolutely love dinosaurs. TV shows, movies, books… Anything. I read Jurassic Park ages and ages ago, but I want to reread it and then start this! Oh, and have any of you heard of the new TV show starting on FOX tomorrow? It’s called Terra Nova, and it’s about people who are sent back in time to when the dinosaurs lived! I’m definitely going to be watching it.
The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans
I’m pretty sure that the movie for this is coming out this autumn. It sounds like a great read, and I’ve heard lots of people talk about it.
