Book haul: Rainy days edition (Part 2)

Well this week was not so rainy but the gloomy weather is just right to keep things a bit cool. Apart from the lack of rain (though I’m not sure why I still used that title…oh well haha) this week was pretty big in terms of book releases.

Of course many of you might have heard about the well hyped release of Harper Lee’s Go Set A Watchman which is the sequel to To Kill A Mockingbird. I was pretty excited when I first learned about the publishing of this book, I even pre-ordered it, in not one but two different book stores. But then after the reviews came out, I pretty much had second thoughts about buying it immediately. One thing is for sure though, I will still read GSAW but not in the immediate future.


On to another important release, I guess in my book it’s a pretty really important release (haha). It’s the much awaited new novel from the best-selling author of Ready Player One, Ernest Cline’s Armada. I’m really giddy about this cause I wasn’t expecting it to be available here in the Philippines for about another week or two. So imagine my excitement when I got the message that my reserved copy has arrived. Looking forward to immersing myself into this new story and I can’t wait to gush blog about it soon!


Apart from Armada, I was lucky enough to score a hardcover copy of Nova Ren Suma’s debut YA novel Imaginary Girls on the sale rack at Fully Booked. I’ll definitely set aside time for this, after I’m finished with my entire sci-fi and fantasy books roster.

I hope you guys also enjoyed the new releases this week. Let me know which books are you excited to read the most.

Happy book hauling!

Hello there! Thanks for stumbling through my little abode here. I’m self-confessed late bloomer voracious reader. Been doing a lot of catching up lately since I let me to-read pile grow a mile (a hundred miles) long. I’m in love with the written word although I have no formal training in writing. I just try to jot down random ramblings and thoughts in my mind before they escape me. My tastes in books aren’t discriminating, I can read almost anything with just a minor exception in the horror genre. Since I scare easily, I tend to back away from that. I read mostly fiction, from young adult, new adult (the older version of YA), sci-fi, thriller, mystery, action-adventure to of course romance (ahem smutty romance). I’m here to share my reviews for the books that I read. Share my thoughts about their authors and characters. I’m not here to blog about the technical aspect of it or give you spoilers (I hope not!) but more like give you insights about these various stories with the hopes that maybe I’ll be encouraging you to read them too. I hope you stayed long enough to get through this. If you did, then you’re the real MVP! Xoxo, The BookNut :)
