If fashionistas have Make-up Hauls, geeks have Book Hauls.
I say ‘geek’ as a term of endearment. Plus, I am one so le duh!
A few months ago there was a book sale at a local bookstore and I for sure had a mini heart attack…in a good way that is. You should see me in a situation like that. My eyes light up like fireworks in the freakin’ Fourth of July. They truly do.
I scored a variety of 9 books for around $20! CHA-CHING. So that’s more or less $2 a book!
Chchcheck out my new babies! Which I’ve completely devoured since then.
For utterly enrapturing reads, I’d highly suggest my top 3 favourites. Namely:
1) The Rosetta Codex by Richard Paul Russo
It’s filled with action, suspense, symbolism, adventure, politics, truth, romance, sci-fi, fantasy, depth of character and the universal question of ‘Who am I?’. I love how the story portrays a persons journey and choices in each stage of the human life cycle. It’s amazing how the author got to create a full feature of a characters life in such a little and semi-thin book. I am in awe.
2) The Edge Chronicles by Paul Stewart & Chris Riddell
Not only are the illustrations so intricately fantastical, the story itself is intricately fantastically made as well. This books is a marriage of visual and mental masterpiece. For what seems/looks like a children’s book, the story is amazingly thought out and complex. It’s a world of its own. It’s Peter Pan-slash-The Lord of the Rings-slash-Where the Wild Things Are combined. I cannot wait to read the next book and the next!
3) Naturally Healthy Skin by Stephanie Tukles
For all the lasses and ladies out there, this is the skin bible for you. Even lads and gentlemen would benefit from this. I am in love with this book! Tea, herbs, fruits and organics are a huge part of my life and this was an amazing find. It’s practically complete in information. You’ll find healthy AND cheap ways to make your skin AND your body healthy. Goodbye to expensive pills, lotions and creams and hello to a cheap but quality and healthy lifestyle.
If you’ve come across this post and have read some of the books here, let me know how you thought of them. Book suggestions are always welcome! 🙂
