Probably the last purchase of the year?

Say hello to my long toes!

Haha, kidding aside, I spent my Christmas money on books (which my parents will never ever know about unless they read my blog—Hi, Mom! Hi, Pa! I love you both. Hehe!). This will be the last purchase I will have for the year 2011 and this is my gift to myself! Yay! Merry Christmas to you, Tricia.

Anyway, I got these babies from my awesome friend who has an online bookstore, Celina for LOW PRICES. She got good titles up in her store (check it now, will you?) and I hoarded until I drop to build my reading list for the year 2012. I know it’s bad because I never touched the books I bought last 2009-2010 (don’t judge, please!).

1. Leviathan by Scott Westerfield – I got the second book of the series, Behemoth, during the Manila International Book Fair last September. I want to start this series so bad!

2. The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan – because it’s David Levithan. The book kind of remind me of Daniel Handler’s Adverbs.

3. Love, Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli – heh, I know I borrowed and read this but I want my own copy in TPB format (because my Stargirl copy is TPB).

4. Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk – I still want to read Chuck Palahniuk even if I don’t like Choke and some stupid troll called me an asshole for telling rants about the book. Anyway, I have to enjoy this one.

(If you ask, I got all these for less than P1,000)


(Sorry for the crappy cellphone picture!)
