2013 Book Haul

It’s unthinkable how addictive books are. I waste my free time in different worlds and adventures which an unexplainable sensation emerge in me each time. Only a few people are lucky enough to feel this and I’m glad to be one of those few. :)

I always find myself having a good time in being alone at bookshops and browse and rummage through its voluminous shelves as I gander for new adventures. So for this blog post, I want to share to all of you my book acquisitions for 2013. But I bet this is not all because I haven’t kept track of what I bought for the first few months and I’m pretty sure there’ll be new additions in the weeks to come. :D

So without further ado, here’s the list of my new books:

1.       A Vintage Affair by Isabel Wolff – Php 115.00 | Booksale

--- Honestly, this book is a bit expensive because I bought it from Booksale. But the thing is, the cover is super cute and after reading the summary, I fell in love right away that I just can’t let it go. So I bought it even if it’s expensive for a second hand book. Mehe~ By the way, 3 chapters left and I’ll finish reading this! I’ll do a review on this. :)
