Hello and happy Wednesday. One of the many things I’ll miss about living in Bogota is the yearly book fair, for obvious reasons. I only remember going to one book fair and not buying anything, but in my defense I was in university and didn’t have a job, so I was pretty much broke.
This year I swore I wouldn’t buy anything because 1. I need to save as much as I can and books in Colombia are expensive, and 2. I was actually trying not to get more books because there’s no way I can take them to Baltimore with me and it breaks my heart to just leave them collecting dust in Bogota.
My resolve was intact until I saw a “Buy 2, get 1 free” poster. I’m sure you would’ve done the same. I got three books from my wishlist, two of which are still recent so even on Kindle they are expensive, and another one that is super hyped because a new movie version somewhat recently launched. If you look at the thumbnail, you’ll know which are the new release and which is the other one.
I bought a hardcover of Turtles All the Way Down by John Green, which means I now own all of his bibliography and have read none of it. I also bought Into the Water by Paula Hawkins, even though I’ve yet to read The Girl on the Train. Finally, I bought It by Stephen King, which is probably going to take me the next five years to read and is going to give me major nightmares.
What books have you recently bought? Let me know in the comments below.
Love, Miss Camila
