Yes, its happened again. Proof that i have no control when it comes to buying books.
I also now have a very messy bookcase which needs sorting, badly!
Right lets get down to this shall we?
No your eyes don’t deceive you and yes, that is a book series. The Broken Earth series by N.K. Jemisin.
I have lost count of how many times The Fifth Season has appeared on my YouTube favourite’s channels. I really wanted to see for myself what was going on.
I actually bought Book 2 first as Amazon were selling it for £2, yes just £2! so i snapped it up then…
I found that book 3 was also £2 so i snapped that up too.
Book 1 was actually full price but even put together the whole series comes to just a tenner! Bargain of the day/week/month/year or what?
I have been waiting for The Spaceman of Bohemia to arrive in paperback form for months so it was good to get that and then i saw Exit West was out and i have not heard a bad thing said about that anywhere. My god the cover is gorgeous too eh? (see featured image next to this post)
This duplicates a couple of the books but it also shows the most gorgeous graphic novel i’ve ever owned. The warmest colour is blue by Julie Maroh, translated by Ivanka Hahnenberger. It is full of muted browns and greys with the odd hint of colour, mainly blue obviously and is just so beautifully drawn.
I would really love to have a graphic novel collection so this may be the kickstart i need.
