This book looked so interesting when advertised on Twitter, so naturally I jumped at the chance, and IT’S AMAZING. I’ve already read it because I have no self control, and I can’t wait for you all to read it!

Synopsis: BREAKING: Nuclear weapon detonates over Washington BREAKING: London hit, thousands feared dead BREAKING: Munich and Scotland hit. World leaders call for calm.

Title:
 John Dies at the End by David Wong

I saw this book at the charity shop and it sounded so intruiging! I loved how it sounded and how the synopsis pulled me in so I was super excited to see it for cheap!

Synopsis: My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours. You may not want to know about the things you ll read on these pages, about the sauce, about Korrock, about the invasion, and the future. But it is too late. You touched the book. You are in the game. You are under the eye. The only defence is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part about the bratwurst. Why? You will just have to trust me. Unfortunately for us, if you make the right choice, we will have a much harder time explaining how to fight off the otherwordly invasion currently threatening to enslave humanity. I m sorry to have involved you in this, I really am. But as you read about these terrible events and the very dark epoch the world is about to enter as a result, it is crucial you keep one thing in mind: NONE OF THIS IS MY FAULT.

 

Title: Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

I LOVE classic books so much and it’s my goal to basically collect all of the great ones and read them. So you can imagine my happiness when I saw this beautiful edition for £1 in the charity shop! £1 for a perfect classic! I can’t get over how beautiful it is.

Synopsis: Great Expectations traces the growth of the book’s narrator, Philip Pirrip (Pip), from a boy of shallow dreams to a man with depth of character. From its famous dramatic opening on the bleak Kentish marshes, the story abounds with some of Dickens’ most memorable characters.

Among them are the kindly blacksmith Joe Gargery, the mysterious convict Abel Magwitch, the eccentric Miss Haversham and her beautiful ward Estella, Pip’s good-hearted room-mate Herbert Pocket and the pompous Pumblechook.

As Pip unravels the truth behind his own ‘great expectations’ in his quest to become a gentleman, the mysteries of the past and the convolutions of fate through a series of thrilling adventures serve to steer him towards maturity and his most important discovery of all – the truth about himself.

 

Title: Jane Austen Collection by Jane Austen

Another £1 classic in a gorgeous edition! I still need to read a book by Jane Austen, so I really loved this collection so I can finally read her books!

Synopsis: This collection includes: Emma, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, Pride & Prejudice, Jane Eyre and Mansfield Park.
