Musing Mondays

Musing Mondays is a meme hosted by Should Be Reading and it asks you to muse about one question each week.

  • Describe one of your reading habits.
  • Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
  • What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! 
  • Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
  • Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
  • Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

This week I decided to answer the following:

Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s)

I have been buying book like crazy recently mostly because we had our annual book fair and I could not help myself, though I'm only sharing the most recent books I've gotten. They are:

  1. The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet by Reif Larsen - I honestly didn't put much thought when I bought this. I read the backcover and that was it. It just felt right.
  2. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky - I have been meaning to get my hands on this book since I found out about the movie (I haven't seen it yet, though).
  3. Monument 14: Sky on Fire by Emmy Laybourne - Immediately after finishing the first book (review coming soon) I knew I had to had the next one. 
  4. Spiderwick Chronicles:The Completely Fantastical Edition by Tony DiTerlizzi & Holly Black - This book came as a suprise for me. I just found a facebook picture of it, thought it was a beautiful edition and went to read about the books. As it turns out it's my type of book.


  1. I really like the Spiderwick Chronicles! Your other books sound like good choices as well, I hope you enjoy them!

    1. Thank you very much, I hope I enjoy them aswell :)

  2. Oh I hope you like them. Book fairs are the best time of year!
