I went book shopping!! I don’t usually dedicate a day or a particular shopping trip to exclusively shop for books, but on Monday I splurged and bought a total of 13 books. I went with three other book loving friends who for the first time didn’t spend as much as me on books.
This haul may not seem that big but I did buy all of these books in one day, and I set myself a personal budget of $100; which with everything else I bought that day did not really stick.
Just WOW! That’s all I can say for Suzanne Young’s most recent installment in The Program series, The Epidemic…
In my review of The Epidemic by Suzanne Young, I stated that The Epidemic was the second-last book in The Program series, which it isn’t. It is – from what I have found out on Goodreads – the second book in the third-last book that has been published in the series. There will be two more books to be published as the final installments in the series. These are; The Adjustment and The Complication, and will both be from the point of view of a new character, Tatum, post fall of The Program.
The Adjustment is expected to be released on April 18th 2017 by Simon Pulse and is the third book (chronologically) in the series.
Ever since I finished reading The Remedy – the third installment in The Programseries – almost five months ago, I have been asking and quite literally begging (and bugging) the librarians at my school library to buy Suzanne Young’s newest release, and latest installment in The Program series; The Epidemic. The Epidemic is the fifth installment in The Program series. So far, this series consists of four books and one ebook (which I read quite recently).
It has not been long since my last post (only 4 days if I counted correctly). I am so proud of myself for keeping up with my blogging lately because I have lots more posts scheduled for your entertainment coming. But without further ado, let’s review the books I managed to read – and buy – in the month of August!
I know it is a bit late (almost two weeks into the month), but here is what I have planned to read in the month of August.
I am trying to keep my TBR pile for this month small as I do not have much time to read, due to this month being a crazy month with school tests and organising my university preferences for next year.
This very short list features three books, one of which I have been begging the library to purchase for quite some time now. This book is The Epidemic by Suzanne Young, one that I have anticipated the release of since I finished the previous book The Remedy almost five months ago. I will be featuring a review for this book once I finish it, hopefully in a few days.
The second book on my list – working up the pile – is Library of Souls, the last book in the Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children series by Ransom Riggs. I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in the series and I powered through them with ease and anticipation; I can now understand why Jessie from Jessiethereader on YouTube is in absolute love with this series.
And finally, the last book that I need to finish this month is Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix! I recently -on impulse…- bought Harry Potter and The Cursed Child when it was released in Australia on Harry’s birthday. I have a post up about that, which can be viewed here.
Hopefully I will be able to finish all three of these books, and maybe more before the month is over. My fingers and toes are crossed tight.
