Anyways, I recently had the opportunity to spend an hour and a half at my local bookstore, which I spent looking over every single book (not exaggerating) that was in the Adult and Young Adult section, as well as the table of books on display, both recent additions to the store and staff recommendations. I shook my head at seeing some of my favourite books not being enshrined as they should be, but moved on, knowing there was nothing I could do. After what was just shy of two beautiful hours, I walked up the counter, paid, and left. With one book. That I have read multiple times before (if you are interested in knowing, it was Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys, a WWII historical fiction, and it is very, very good). To be fair, I have wanted to personally own a copy of this book for a year or two, but still, doesn’t it say something either about the bookstore or about me that I spent such a long time in this bookstore, in booklover’s paradise, and came out with only one book? I don’t know what this world is coming to.
I apologize for this being another post that was not a review (my second in a row), but I do have a reason for it! I just finished reading the superb (!!) book Hattie Big Sky by Kirby Larson, and this post was honestly supposed to be a review for that book, but I wrote the review during my spare time at school in a notebook, and I may have accidentally left it there. In my locker. Eighty kilometres away from me. During Christmas Vacation. On my next posting week it will be a day or two before I head back to school to get my review (and do schoolwork, I suppose), so I will probably – hopefully – have my review of The Help up for you guys to read, or if you do not mind waiting a few extra days I might post the Hattie Big Sky review.
Wow, time flies though. Already it is Christmas Week, and in about twenty or twenty-one days it will be the one year anniversary of The Book Addict’s blog! I hope you all have a great Christmas and a happy New Year, and that you get to spend both of them with those you want to!
Stay Addicted (and Merry Christmas)!
