January 2015: Book Haul

.

Ummm... so... I guess my Christmas mood is still lingering because I don't know why this month I kept buying new books. There's just something very satisfying about making a book purchase. Do you know what I mean, book hoarders out there? I hope I'm not the only one who feels this way. This month I acquired a total of 11 books (so far), 3 non-fiction books, and the rest are fiction which includes 5 Indonesian books and 3 English ones. I have read 4 books from this pile, so I will include the links to my reviews as well :)) Here are the pretty books!

↓↓↓↓↓↓↓

I didn't plan on buying this book, it's just one of those impulsive buy when I visit Gramedia bookstore with my Mom. What grabbed my attention was the beautiful cover; and thankfully there's an opened copy on display so I can browse through. Basically it's a book about infographic and how powerful it can be if presented correctly. I think this will be a good book, which I can read from time to time. I'm really loving the graphics & illustrations inside :)))

Got this one at Periplus bookstore when I was browsing (again). I fell in love with it the moment I flip the pages inside, because it's full of wonderful quotes for 365 days. I love quotes, and I think this will be a good companion for me after I read Wonder by R.J. Palacio—which I'm planning to read this year :))

Originally, I wasn't planning on getting this book as well—but then I read quite a lot of people liked it and even gave good ratings. So I thought I'd give it a try, even though the book is so expensive. Bought this at Gramedia bookstore as well. Read and reviewed it already :)

Pre-ordered this one from bukabuku.com, because then I can get the signed copy. Read this one as well; so you can check out my review to find out my opinion on this book :))

Again, didn't plan on getting this one.....but that cover. Loving that pretty typography cover. I bought this at Gramedia bookstore, but unfortunately still haven't read it yet. It's a collection of short stories. Maybe I'll get to it after I'm finished with The Heroes of Olympus series.

I needed to get this the day it was published, because Hai, Miiko! is the only manga that I'm still following until now. It's quite thin, but I love the stories inside. I already read this manga, but only wrote a short Goodreads review.

Penerbit Haru sent me this book for January, and I was pretty excited because the book is currently adapted into a Chinese-drama. I've read and reviewed this book, also I'm holding a signed-copy giveaway for this book here.

I fell in love with the cover, again! This time Puffin Books released a Puffin Chalk edition for classics in children's literature. Peter Pan has been in my wishlist for quite some time, so hopefully I can get to this one soon! :))

Another one from the Puffin Chalk edition; this one I solely bought for the cover, and because it's not too expensive as well. The story is considered a classic, and I hope I'll like this one :))

I think the author herself sent me this book, because I suddenly received it in the mail out of nowhere. This book was actually released back in 2013; and I have no idea what it's going to be about. Not sure when I'll get to it though.

The last one is a book I purchased from Amazon. Yes, I finally made a purchase again on Amazon after a long time, because this book is cheaper there (even with shipping fee) compared to Book Depository. I actually planned on writing an online bookstore review for Amazon, but forgot because I was too excited to open the package.... So maybe next time. This book is a book about script lettering, which I'm interested in recently. There are a lot of great references in the book to give inspirations :))


To be honest, I'm actually still expecting several more packages to arrive as I'm writing this post (on January 24th) ; but I guess I will include those in my next book haul. New books gives me happiness, and it's important to be happy right? :D Have you read the books that I included in my haul? And do you make any book purchase this month? :) Feel free to comment down below and share your thoughts ;))

  3. Oh My God, I'm kinda weak for pretty covers! XD
    And ironically, it's pretty common these days for new author to get fancy covers. Well, I don't know how the book really is but it just switches my attention sometimes ;) I got focus on the cover instead of the story inside LOL! :p

    Anywaaayy, belum ada 1 buku pun dari haul ini yang aku baca hehehe Tapi tertarik sama Infografis, definitely a must have for graphic junkie >.<!

    However, I did make a purchase this month though not as many as yours ;) Here's mine: http://mytreasurebag.blogspot.com/2015/01/haul-stationary-craze.html
