The German Book Haul

Hello, friends! I’m sorry, it’s been nearly two weeks since my last post, but I have a good reason: I have a girl from Germany staying with me for nearly two weeks. She arrived the night of Wednesday the 16th, and leaves on Tuesday the 29th. She knows I like to read, though, so she got me a book she bought in Germany, and then today she really wanted to see a Barnes and Noble, so we went. (More books for me!) Let’s jump into it!

1. Did I Mention I Love You? by Estelle Maskame

This is the book that my German exchange partner gave me the night she got here. She said they were very popular books, and on the cover it says: “Book 1 in the phenomenal Dimily series.” Apparently, in Germany, it’s “phenomenal” so I’d better get on that. It looks like a romance book, so I’m not sure about it, but I still want to read it.

2. Pocket Anatomy by Christopher Joseph

This is a book that my uncle sent me, and it’s basically a modernized version of Gray’s Anatomy (The journal, not the show.) with original drawings from the classic.

3. The Intriguing Story of the Elements by Jack Challoner

This is another book that my uncle sent me the other day, and I’m actually really interested in reading it. It’s about how every little thing in this universe is connected in some way.

4. We All Looked Up by Tommy Wallach

I just got this book a few hours ago, but I’ve been eyeing it in stores for MONTHS! Basically, I think it’s about a town in which an asteroid will hit two months following the start of the book. It’s about a bunch of people basically saying, “I have two months to live my life up to the fullest.”

5. Heartless by Marissa Meyer

This book is about a girl named Cath, who knows that the king of Wonderland wants to marry her, even though she really just wants to be a baker. She attends this ball during which she knows the king will propose to her, but then ends up meeting a guy named Jest. Jest and her develop a secret relationship so they don’t offend the king or anger Cath’s parents.

6. These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

This is another book that I’ve been thinking about reading for some time now. It’s about a spacecraft crashing into another planet, and only two people surviving: a rich girl named Lilac, and a poor boy named Tarver. Tarver has been taught not to get involved with rich girls like Lilac, but they soon discover that they really do need to rely on each other to survive.


Thank you guys so much for reading! Please like and comment down below! Trust me, I’ll be reading them. 😉
