Book Buys of August


So I've *finally* got back into reading this month, and I've bought a ton of books recently and read a few of them so thought I would share what I've been reading this month with you!

So the books  I've bought so far this summer are

Divergent, which I am so late on the bandwagon for, as the film has been out for a while now, but I want to read the books, so I picked up Divergent. It seems to be done in the same style as the Hunger Games, but it's not completely comparable. I think I'm going to take this with me and read it at uni.

The Manifesto on How to Be Interesting was a book I heard about on a video, but I can't remember who's video it was, as I'm a bit obsessed with watching book hauls and can't remember who's it was. This book has orange pages which attracted me to it, but other than that I don't know much about it or about the author as I'd never heard of her before I bought this book. After doing a bit of research, it's about a girl called Bree who is told to "start living a life worth writing about". I'm really interested to see what this book is about, and I'll do a little review once I've read it :) 

Will Grayson, Will Grayson. I absolutely love John Green, and picked this up because my best friend read it and loved it. I have no idea what it's about other than two guys, both called Will Grayson. I imagine this is done in a similar style to Eleanor & Park, a book I read this month and absolutely adored, in which the author switches between Eleanor's point of view and Park's.

An Abundance of Katherines. I've read An Abundance of Katherines, and it was absolutely amazing! I took it with me when I went to Liverpool and couldn't put it down. I really loved Colin, the main character, and I have a friend like Hassan so that made me chuckle :P It's about a guy who is a prodigy; he spends much of his time studying, is obsessed with anagrams, and, when dumped by his 19th Katherine, decides to make an algorithm which he hopes will enable him to predict the possible relationships between two random people, based on various factors. Colin goes on a road trip with Hassan, and finds himself in a place called Gunshot, in Tennessee.

Fangirl. As I mentioned earlier, this month I read Eleanor & Park by the same author. It took me a little while to get into it, but once I got into it I couldn't  put it down and stayed up till the wee hours of the morning to finish it. The ending made me so emotional as well. I picked up this book after seeing a few people (including Zoe Sugg) say they were planning on reading it, and frankly, what's not to like? It's about an introverted girl who writes fan fiction, and meets a boy. Sounds like the perfect story to get into now the days are getting shorter and colder (I can't quite believe how cold it's been recently, it's been perfect cuddling up reading weather, but I've been so busy working I've not found the time to pick up a book in a while unfortunately). 

Paper Towns, yet another John Green. I'm obsessed. According to the blurb on the cover, it's about a person called Quentin, who "has always loved Margo from afar", and it's about a night spent on a 'road trip of revenge' and then Margo goes missing and he has to find her. Sounds intriguing! I'll get stuck into this one soon I reckon.

Please let me know what books you've bought/loved this month, and if you have any recommendations then leave them down below!
