The stories we love best live in us forever...

This is quite simply a list of book I have bought to read. I have always loved reading and when given a book voucher recently I had no idea what to buy having taken a break from the literary world since studying English Literature took all the enjoyment out of it. The last book I read was The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I loved it - so much so that I read it in about two days over Christmas and then had no option but to pass it over to my sister for her to again read it in as little time. At the time I also bought the new novel by Khalid Hosseini - And the Mountains Echoed but revision and the urge to read more of John Green's work led to it being put to one side.

The other day i ventured out into the rain and found the Waterstone's nearest to me to witness a buy one get one half price offer on many books. With this I picked up 4 more books (lucky I had a voucher or my bank balance would not be happy ey!!).

(Sorry for the fuzziness... I seem to have misplaced my camera - iPad pictures aren't the best!)

1. Stoner - John Williams
2. Will Grayson, Will Grayson - John Green & David Leuithan
3. An Abundance of Katherines - John Green
4. Paper Towns - John Green
5. And the Mountains Echoes - Khaled Hosseini

Yes, there is a running theme - but as I have learnt in the past - I generally fall into patterns of authors. I once read most of Alexander McCall Smith's book series, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, one after the other. The odd book out was picked up out of pure interest, and then as the blurb allowed my pre-judgements to be proven wrong I felt it was only fair to give it a go - I have started to read Williams' book, it is definitely interesting but I will have to wait to finish it to give it a fair judgement!

Do any of you have a love for reading?
Would you be interested in any of these books being reviewed?
