So I’ve been taking it easy recently and I actually haven’t been purchasing many books! This is a good thing for me as I was running out of space and money for any more new ones! I’ve been trying to use the library a lot more, as well as Scribd for all of my audiobook needs which has been one of my favourite apps lately! I did manage to pick up a few new reads though! Here they are!
The Deal Of A Lifetime by Fredrick Backman
A father and a son are seeing each other for the first time in years. The father has a story to share before it’s too late. He tells his son about a courageous little girl lying in a hospital bed a few miles away. She’s a smart kid—smart enough to know that she won’t beat cancer by drawing with crayons all day, but it seems to make the adults happy, so she keeps doing it. As he talks about this plucky little girl, the father also reveals more about himself: his triumphs in business, his failures as a parent, his past regrets, his hopes for the future. Now, on a cold winter’s night, the father has been given an unexpected chance to do something remarkable that could change the destiny of a little girl he hardly knows. But before he can make the deal of a lifetime, he must find out what his own life has actually been worth, and only his son can reveal that answer.
Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott
Stella Grant likes to be in control—even though her totally out of control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. At this point, what Stella needs to control most is keeping herself away from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardize the possibility of a lung transplant. Six feet apart. No exceptions. The only thing Will Newman wants to be in control of is getting out of this hospital. He couldn’t care less about his treatments, or a fancy new clinical drug trial. Soon, he’ll turn eighteen and then he’ll be able to unplug all these machines and actually go see the world, not just its hospitals. Will’s exactly what Stella needs to stay away from. If he so much as breathes on Stella she could lose her spot on the transplant list. Either one of them could die. The only way to stay alive is to stay apart. But suddenly six feet doesn’t feel like safety. It feels like punishment. What if they could steal back just a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? Would five feet apart really be so dangerous if it stops their hearts from breaking too?
Dreamin’ Sun Vol.8 by Ichigo Takano
Shimana is still trying to work through her feelings for Taiga, her curmudgeonly landlord. As if that weren’t hard enough, almost everyone — from her roommate Zen to Taiga’s father — seems determined to keep them apart! Meanwhile, Shimana’s biggest ally, Asahi, is suffering heartbreak of his own…
As I said, a very small haul for me this month which is probably a good thing considering all of the Christmas shopping that needs to be done! What books did you pick up this month?!
Thank you for reading!
