Loading the Library [1] - Spending that First Paycheck

Loading the Library is a haul segment I'm starting on my blog to talk about recent books or other bookish items I've added to my collection. It's basically a haul post. :)

Having gotten my very first paycheck a while back, I reasonably spent a portion of it on books. I picked up a couple new releases I wanted to check out, as well as some popular picks I haven’t gotten into yet.

With university applications coming up hard and fast, I’ll likely not have time to read much these coming months, but who knows? It’s depressing how few books I’ve read this year, but that’s a whole other blog post.

Without further ado, here are latest additions to my collection.

The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout

JLA is probably my favourite teen romance author of all time. Yup, I said it. There’s just something special about the way she writes. Her books are funny, heartwarming, and lined with fantastic plots. While she has a lot of YA fantasy books, her new adult books are just as good in my opinion.

Also, isn’t the cover gorgeous?

After You by Jojo Moyes


Me Before You is probably one of the top five books I read this year. It was a beautiful read, filled with well developed characters and fantastic writing. I’m not sure how I feel about reading this sequel though, and that’s because I quite liked the ending of Me Before You, and really don’t want to ruin my view of it. ;O

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld


Heard quite a lot from this series; some good, some bad. I thought the concept was quite interesting, but we’ll see how it goes.

From a Buick 8 by Stephen King


Picked this book up from a used book sale. Never heard of this book, but I love me some Stephen King. I’m assuming it’s one of his earlier works.

Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer


Another book I picked up from the book sale. I don’t care what people say; Twilight will always carry a special place in my heart. I’ve yet to collect the whole series, and this was in great condition, so I had to buy it (also from the used book sale)!

The Perfect Girl by Gilly MacMillan


Saw this in the book section at Costco. The synopsis sounded super cool and I couldn’t resist!
