Books for Mail is basically me showcasing my addiction to buying books. Every two weeks, I’ll show you guys which books I have bought/received, and hopefully you’ll find some great titles!
In My Mailbox:
Lair of Dreams by Libbra Bray: LOOK AT THIS BEAUTIFUL COVER, OHMYGOSH. Thank you very much, Allen & Unwin!
How to Be Happy by Dave Burton: A YA non-fiction book about getting through high school and university. Thank you, Text Publishing!
Jukebox by Gina Noelle Daggett: I got this for about $3 on Booktopia, and it’s about two girls in love in the time of debutantes. It sounds cheesy and also kind of heartbreaking at the same time.
Another Day by David Levithan: The companion to Every Day, but told from Rhiannon’s POV. I’m interested and worried at the same time because I didn’t even really like Rhiannon. EEP. Thank you, Text!
Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas: I CANNOT EVEN WITH THIS BOOK – AHHH! THANK YOU, Bloomsbury Australia!!!
Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young: This was about $7 on Booktopia, and it sounds so awesome. Kind of like Sliding Doors.
The Originals by Cat Patrick: Another cheap book I purchased, because it’s been on my TBR FOR AGES.
Homecoming by Nell Stark: This was $2.95, and its about a girl in college whose girlfriend dumps her, and then everything hits the fan. I’m keen.
Simply Sunday is a reading meme run here at Books for a Delicate Eternity. It’s where you can share your favourite quote of the week; be it from a book, a novella, a short story, a poem – whatever you like!
My Simple Thing:
“If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s this: We all want everything to be okay. We don’t even wish so much for fantastic or marvelous or outstanding. We will happily settle for okay, because most of the time, okay is enough.”
A quote from David Levithan (Every Day).
Why I Chose It:
GOSH, this entire book is beautiful, if I’m being honest. But then again, it’s David, so I wouldn’t expect anything less.
I really like this quote, because I think it’s pretty true. Most of the time ‘okay’ is enough, because it means nothing bad is happening, and it makes the times when you’re more than okay – fantastic or marvellous or outstanding – so much more special that way.
What books did you receive in the mail recently? What do you think of my Simply Sunday?
P.s. I opened up a writing/LGBTQIA/general blog!
