Book Purchases

I am now only two reviews behind. Hopefully I will have those up over the weekend if not before. Meanwhile I was bad and bought some books. Two of them are for challenges mind you and I am halfway through one.

Flowers For Algernon - Daniel Keyes (half way through and it's for this months sci fi challenge)
Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs (for next months mixing it up challenge)
The Sea, The Sea - Iris Murdoch,
No One Left To Tell - Karen Rose


  1. I've been meaning to read Flowers for Algernon for years, but never seem to get to it. Everyone I know who's read it loves it. I'll pop in to see what you thought when you're finished.

    1. I am more than halfway through and loving it. I have a feeling there will be some tears by the end. x

  2. Buying books is never bad. Gather knowledge they say, and books are knowledge, aren't they? Unfortunately our shelves don't expand according to our memory!

  3. Oh my gosh, I LOVE Flowers for Algernon SO much, and I don't tend to like sci fi, in general. I hope you're enjoying it! :)

  4. I just finished Flowers for Algernon for the sci-fi challenge and loved it. It really makes you think about intelligence and emotion and the balance between the two.
