first book haul of the year

first book haul of the year


Hi everyone, this is Sofia and welcome to
The Little Bookshop on the Corner. Today I’m going to do my first book haul
of the year, these are all the books that I bought on February, one of those was
actually a gift and in this video I’m going to show you each one of those
books, the reason why I bought them and if I read some of them I’m going to tell
you something about it so stick around with me and let’s start! So the first book that I’m going to talk
about is actually a pre-order, I ordered it in early January and it arrived
before it was even published and it is the third volume of Heartstopper by
Alice Oseman and if you don’t know about it it’s an LGBT graphic novel that
follows two main characters Charlie who is openly gay and Nick that is a very
sweet rugby player at his school and they develop a friendship that perhaps will
develop into something more but I don’t want to spoil it and I read this as soon
as it arrived and I don’t know if that’s possible but I loved it even more than
the first two volumes and I’m really looking forward to reading the next one. The next book I bought, I bought it at a bookstore before one of my classes and I had it on my wishlist for quite some time and it’s Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel and one of the reasons that made me buy it it’s its cover, I really like white covers with minimalist details but I’m really curious about story too and it’s a sci-fi dystopian kind of
post-apocalyptic novel and it deals with the deadly virus that spreads through
North America and it begins with the onstage death of a famous Hollywood
actor and I really don’t know how it goes from there so that’s why I really want to read it and understand what it’s really about
so yeah I’m really looking forward to read it and finally understand. I bought this one because I was really longing to buy a hardback for some time and I also had it on my wishlist and it’s Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin It’s a YA fantasy novel that has two main
characters, Louise she’s a witch and Reed I think, that is kind of a Huntsman
for the Church and they seem like natural enemies but are forced to
coexist and I really like those kind of stories that deals with
the relationship from enemies to lovers it’s kind of a guilty pleasure for me
so I’m really curious to read this book. The next two I’m going to talk about, I
bought them because I wanted to read more YA like contemporary novels
because they’re easier to read and I wanted to get out of a reading slump and
the first one I bought is All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven and I don’t know if you heard it but it’s going or it was already adapted on Netflix
and that’s one of the main reasons it made me buy it because I wanted to read it before I watched the movie and it deals with two main characters
Theodore and Violet and Theodore is a bit fascinated by death and that’s what
made me a little bit unsure of reading it because I don’t want to feel
triggered and I’m already reading it although I only read like 14 pages but
I’m a bit hesitant about it so we’ll see how the author deals with this subject. Like I said I bought this one with the previous one and I don’t know why I didn’t buy it sooner since I had it on my wish list for months or years and
it’s Autoboyography by Christina Lauren it’s an LGBT book and one of the reasons
made me finally buy it it’s because I finished reading Red, White and Royal Blue, that is also an LGBT book and I wanted to read more of that genre
and so I thought that it was the perfect time to finally buy it. This is a YA romance like I said and it deals with a very current opposition that is
sexuality versus religion and I never read one of Christina Lauren’s books, it’s the first time so I don’t know how I’ll feel
about her writing or if I’ll like it but I’m really curious about it and my expectations are very high. The next one is a little bit different, it was a gift. My boyfriend gave me this book on Valentine’s Day which is kind of
unusual since it’s not the most romantic gift but I loved it since it’s a book
that I really wanted and it shows that he cared and he knew that I wanted this
book and it’s I’ll Be There for You by Kelsey Miller It’s a nonfiction book that talks about the series, the TV show F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and it explains a lot of details about the series, things that happened backstage and why this TV
show is so important to pop culture nowadays and it’s one of my favorite TV
shows, I wanted this book for so long every time I went to the bookstore I saw this book and I was there like I want this book but it’s so
expensive and I finally have it and I can’t wait to read it since Friends
is a TV show that I will always love. So the final two books that I bought, I
bought those on another trip to a bookstore because I don’t know how to
control myself and the first one is Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli and
Aisha Saeed, this book came out very recently in the beginning of February
and originally I wanted to buy the hardback edition but once I saw the
paperback I really liked it and thought that paperbacks look very cute together, paperbacks of YA novels so I figured why not and this both is a YA romance but it also deals with very important topics like cross-cultural
relationships since one of the main characters is Muslim and it deals with politics and social activism and I’m
really looking forward for this one and I hope I don’t get disappointed by it in
the end. Lastly I’m going to show you the other book that I bought along with the previous one. I have already read this one and although it wasn’t on my wish
list, I didn’t pretend to buy it anytime soon but once I saw it on the
bookstore I really wanted to read it right there, it’s one of those compelling
books and the cover is really enticing and it’s My Sister, The Serial Killer by
Oyinkan Braithwaite, I don’t know if I’m pronouncing the name right and
it’s a very short book, the chapters are very short and the reading is very
fluent (*I think I wanted to say fluid sorry) and it’s sort of a mystery thriller novel that deals with two sisters and like the title shows one of the sisters is a serial
killer and it’s sort of twisted the story because the sister love is very
unnatural but I’m not going to spoil it for you since this is not a wrap up
video so I really recommend it and even if you’re not interested in the story, you should read it because the writing is very beautiful and I think
it’s a book that deserves to be read. So we’re finally over with my first book haul of the year and I hope you guys liked this video, I wasn’t really in the mood to do it this time, my anxiety was really getting
the better of me but I pushed through it and here we’ve the video! I don’t know
if I’m going to do a book haul every month it depends on the amount of books
that I buy, if I’ve enough books to do it I will do another book haul but it was a very fun video to do and I’m really looking forward to read the
books that I haven’t read already and I hope you’ll stick around with me and
like I always say, if you have tips and comments to give me, feel free to do it and I hope I see you next time. Bye!
