Book Shopping

Today I bought three new books, because I have a cold and books make me feel like lying in bed when ill is okay….

1. Dark Eyes by William Richter (YA)

I chose this one because I had heard it compared to Veronica Mars by a fellow blogger…

I loved Veronica Mars…

2. Whisper by Chrissie Keighery (YA)

I picked this because it’s written in the first person and it’s about a girl who is faced with overcoming a physical problem in order to face the world, which is just like the book I want to write – so for inspiration I guess.

3. Little Brother by Cory Doctorow (Dystopian)

I was impressed by the quote on the cover, the first paragraph, and the concept. Censorship and being monitored by cameras and computers and all the rest of it is something which I am a little paranoid about, so I also liked the idea of someone fictitious facing this issue head on.

I seldom buy books written by men, preferring female authors, so my choices today were a bit out of character, but I’m looking forward to reading them.
