“My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations.”  ― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

“My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations.” ― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Technically the post has nothing to do with the title.  It is just a quote that I fell in love with recently.  A string of pieced together words that describes me exactly.  One of the reasons why I could write out nearly every single thought I have in my head but could never vocalise any of them. 


But enough of that.  Back to reality, I really should stop browsing at Kino with friends who could just about get me to buy more books than I’ve planned.


Excuse No.1 – You’ve been looking for it since forever right?  What if it’s not here the next time you come?

Very true indeed.  I have been looking out for Mastiff and this edition of Fire and Hemlock at every visit but they are never there…  And this time there’s still a copy of Mastiff left because Marisa actually ordered 2 copies instead of 1 this time around!  (Definitely should get it while I still can!)


Excuse No. 2 – You have to get a book from Kino when you visit.  It’s like, the golden rule.

Oh yes…  NEVER LEAVE A BOOKSTORE WITHOUT BUYING A BOOK.  Haha…  Seems to be true whenever I hang out with Nuri at KLCC.  It’s always Books + Food + Movies whenever we hang out, and never in the same order.  And we both have more to add to our stack of ‘to read’ books at home.


Excuse No.3 – They are on discount!!!

I always check out the books on promotion every month just because I could justify spending more on books because they are cheaper.  The biggest perpetrator of my eternal splurging on books would be myself.  I have no one but myself to blame for my incessant inability to think whenever I am surrounded by books.


Excuse No. 4 – The books jumped off the shelves and hijacked my bag.

Complete denial.  Sanity level is decreasing.  Hallucinations prone to occur.

Another Haul

Another Haul

This is what happens when I haven’t been to Kinokuniya for 2 months.  Not sure whether I should rejoice or cry.  Books just seem to be able to lift themselves off the shelves into my basket and I ended up with this lot.  Been wanting to read so many of them since I heard about them.  Plus, some are on discount!  [A bibliophile’s excuse indeed…]  Maybe after reading a few I should try writing reviews for some…  At least I have something to look forward to during the long long long week at work.


It’s 2 and I’m still awake… So what do I do? Make a list of books I would like to buy at my next Kinokuniya visit :

  • Pivot Point
  • Cruel Beauty
  • This Star Won’t Go Out
  • The Fault in Our Stars
  • Eleanor and Park
  • Beautiful Creatures
  • Delirium
  • The Hunger Games Trilogy
  • Islands of Chaldea
  • Angelfall

There goes my February salary.  I can just see it flying out the window this instant…
