“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.

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.

The First Pages of 2014

I finally caved in and bought Tamora Pierce’s Beka Cooper books, though I still need to get Mastiff.  Beka has got to be my favourite girl from all of Tamora Pierce’s books.  And why are all the Rogues from Tortall so attractive anyway!?  I’m glad I bought the books.  I’m already halfway through Bloodhound and I only started Terrier yesterday afternoon.  I need to make another trip to Kinokuniya for Mastiff.  Too bad it wasn’t on the shelves when I drop by on Sunday.  But I made do by getting Unhinged.  I wonder how good it is…  I love Splintered but sometimes sequels don’t measure up to the first.  We shall see…
