New Books! #33

NewBooksMemeBanner

I hope everyone had a bookish Christmas! (: I did, and got some awesome-looking books, though I’ll probably be buying more in new year sales soon. Since I last did a book haul at the beginning of December, I’ve also bought a lot of books, but I tweeted a lot of pictures so you might have seen some! They’re not in this post today. However, here’s most of the Christmas haul:

Gifted for Christmas:

I’ll highlight a few! ;D

Fortunately, The Milk… by Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell (Special edition): I had this on my kindle and, like a few other illustrated eBooks, I think I could’ve enjoyed them even more in physical format! This copy was signed because Foyles have exclusive editions in pretty slipcases and all of them are signed! Squeee!

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (Folio Society Copy): I saw this in the Folio Society’s catalog a while ago and it’s a really beautiful edition. I’ve enjoyed a few of Ray Bradbury’s stories before but this is his classic, most famous one- and I haven’t read it! ): This copy’s a slipcase edition too, and the illustrations inside are so pretty. I’m looking forward to it!

Curtsies and Conspiracies by Gail Carriger: Squeeee. SOAP. SOPHRONIA. VIEVE. I’m so excited to read more about them! I’ve really been looking forward to finding a copy of this, since I finished Etiquette and Espionage. This is definitely getting bumped up the TBR Pile (:

NYX- Wannabe (Vol 1) & No Way Home (Vol 2) from Marvel: This graphic novels look so awesome, and really different from all of the rest of the Mutant comics. Before, it’s all been about the Jean Grey School. But now: IT’s about the Mutants who are still struggling in the human schools- this is set in New York. I started the first Volume earlier and it’s amazing so far: Really gritty and action packed and emotional and… whoa.

Ta-Da! So that, along with all of the other TBR books from before, has probably made up my whole next year of reading… Tell me what you thought of any of them as a comment/ tweet! And, link back to your own hauls ;D (Also, I like my new collage-y format. I fiddled around on Picmonkey a lot. Hope you like it!).
