It's the third in a series about anorexia. Really good!

Besides the ones I bought for school, I bought The Star Rover (which I'm currently reading and loving) and Martin Eden by Jack London. Also bought In the Name of Identity by Amin Maalouf and Sea Prayer by Khaled Hosseini.

I bought even more >.< I bulk order books around the holidays as gifts for family members, but I can't help but get a few for myself.

So I got 

Pride and Pejudice by Jane Austen

The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins

Zodiac by Robert Graysmith

 

I'm trying to hold myself back from buying books faster than I'm able to read them

I got 2, actually c: Mythology by Edith Hamilton, and The Dark by John McGahern

 

Mythology is awesome, the book is gorgeous and has most of my fav Greek/Roman Myths, and The Dark was an amazing, tragic and profoundly uncomfortable read. I love McGahern and relate intensely (hence the discomfort) to his stories. I've literally gone through some of the exact same scenes in this book, and said the exact dialogue (or near to it). My experiences growing up in rural Ireland weren't all that different to his it seems, despite them happening 70 years later

 

I also got "Nationalism and War, edited by John A. Hall and Siniša Malešević", but that's for Uni and probably not something I can talk about without writing a whole essay lol


"there are still faint glimmers of civilisation left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity"
