Birthday Book Haul

Pictured

  1. Marvel 1602  Neil Gaiman
    I adore Neil Gaiman but have never been too interested in graphic novels. Yet, it seems like I am missing out on a very big part of what makes Gaiman such a wonderful author by ignoring such a big part of his writings. I am excited to try a whole new kind of novel.
  2. Caroline/Fortunately, the Milk/The Graveyard Book  Neil Gaiman
    This set caught my eye when Gaiman posted about it on his twitter page. It hit my to -read list immediately. I looked for this beautifully covered box set every trip to every bookstore since. I am excited to read these this weekend.
  3. Shadowmarch Tad Williams
    After being told that I would enjoy this book, I tried to bookmooch it. No luck on bookmooch, so I added it to my fantasy series to-read list. This follows Gentleman Bastards Series, the Malazan Book of the FallenThe Kingkiller Chronicles, the Discworld novels, all the Black Company novels, etc.
  4. Deadhouse Gates Steven Erikson
    I am in the midst of finishing listening and reading the first of this series. It is a beautifully written fantasy novel that leaves me wishing I could devote and entire month to finishing these novels. The descriptions are wonderful and detailed.
  5. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz L. Frank Baum
    A childhood favourite. I realised that my library does not have a copy.

  1. The Secret Ken Blanchard & Mark Miller
    Given to me by my mum. I have no idea what it is about, but it looks like one of those how to be better professionally books.
  2. The Lie Tree Frances Harbinge
    Trying to branch out in Harbinge’s writings.
  3. The Fly Trap Frances Harbinge
    I loved the amazing descriptions and wonderful way of viewing the world Harbinge wrote through the eyes of the characters in the first of this series. It is a beautiful, cheerful, relaxing series after a day spent reading journal articles.
  4. The Ultimate Quotable Einstein Albert Einstein
    I can see a million used for this in my life.
  5. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – Parts I & II J.K. Rowling
    I feel obligated to read this because I loved the Harry Potter series as a child. It was perhaps my first book series. But, I feel really worried that Rowling will disappoint. I have not enjoyed any of her writings since she murdered Dumbledore… but, here is to giving it a go.
  6. The Sleeper and the Spindle Neil Gaiman
    I love Gaiman. Seriously, read a Gaiman book if you have not. Seriously. Stop fooling around on the internet. Read a Gaiman book. Now!
