Books of Winter

I just got all the books that I ordered from Amazon last Black Friday. The delivery wasn't as fast like last year. But it was fast, nonetheless, even for a free shipping. I also got the books for a total $33, which was a steal since they're all new releases and hardcover editions. Unfortunately, I have yet to finish Everything Matters! before I start reading any of these books.

Anyways, here are the books that I bought:

Beautiful Creatures
Based on its synopsis, and from the reviews that I read, this book is a love story/modern fantasy. Kinda like Twilight, I suppose. Except that the outcast here is the chick. Normally, I won't touch love stories with a 10 foot pole. But I will admit that I do like "average-guy-meets-weird girl" stories, being an average guy/geek who's still looking for a weird/cool gal.

Catching Fire
This is the second book of The Hunger Games trilogy. I really enjoyed reading The Hunger Games last year. It's a dystopian/post-apocalyptic fiction that reminded me of The Running Man. The book was cut short though. So I'm really excited to read this book and learn what happens next.

The Year of the Flood
Honestly, I don't know anything about this book. I didn't read the synopsis when I bought it. But I know that is a dystopian fiction written by Margaret Atwood (Oryx and Crake, The Handmaid's Tale) and that's enough info for me to buy this book.

These books seems to be really interesting, now that I just held them on my hand and smelled their pages. I haven't skipped reading a book for a long while. But I guess I'm going shelf Everything Matters! and then start reading Beautiful Creatures.
