Books that Followed me Home

So books that followed me home, is a spotlight I do on my blog, that showcases books that "follow me home." Basically it means it's the books I bought, but this way sounds better. Especially when people inquire about the amounts of books I buy.

This book run was a bit themed, where I bought some books from the Banned Books List. As this week is Banned Books Week and part of my celebration of it or promotion of freedom to read, is to read books from the list. The secondary theme of this batch is Paranormal, as I bought two books from that genre for the Smart Chicks Kick It Tour. More information about this is on the post below this. So I made sure to buy a few books as well. Not a bad haul this week, I have to say.

So here are the books I bought this time around.

The Shadow of the Wind - Carlos Ruiz Zafón (This book isn't a banned book, but its plot surrounds book censorship, book burning, so I thought it fitting for banned book week. Also a book club I hope to join has chosen this book for October.

Jezebel - Irene Nemirovsky

Beautiful Creatures - Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (Book from the Smart Chicks Kick It Tour)

Stolen - Kelly Armstrong (Book from the Smart Chicks Kick It Tour)

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest - Ken Kesey (One of my Banned Books Choices, I never read it in high school so thought it was time I did)

The Sun Also Rises - Ernest Hemingway (Another banned book choice, currently reading it now)

So, there are the books that followed me home. If you want to participate, go right a head, just link back to my blog and leave a comment in the comments section so I can see what books followed you home.

Also, stay tuned as I hope to have my Banned Books Week Post soon. I've been doing daily posts on Facebook about banned books, showcasing the book I'm currently reading, I'll post this on the blog tomorrow.

Happy Reading!


  1. I am thinking that I need to buy a few of the banned books as well. I know that there is and Alexie book that I have had my eye on for awhile, and now seems like the perfect time! I hope you enjoy your new books!

  2. I'll have to keep my eye out for some of the banned books at the next library sale. Happy reading!

  3. Zibilee - I love buying banned books, they usually turn out to be great stories and quality writing. I hope you managed to nab some good books.

    Diaryofanecentric - Ohh! Library sales. I just missed one at mine. Do you find there are a lot of good book options at them?
