Books I Got for My Birthday {2017}

Yes, you get a bonus post! I didn’t see any opportunities for posting this soon (on schedule), so I decided to do it today instead. πŸ™‚


Books I got for my birthday {2018} graphic.png

SORRY! This graphic is supposed to say {2017}… but I made it in 2018 to replace a different graphic, so here we go! πŸ˜›

I had a birthday recently, and all of my wonderful friends and family who know me well also know that I love to read, so guess what they got for me? Books, of course! Some of these I had already read, and wanted to have, and others I hadn’t even heard of. I’m going to “introduce” you to these wonderful books.

((click on the links under the covers to go to the books’ Amazon pages))

I have been wanting this book for awhile, and a sweet lady in our church was so kind and bought it for me. However, I was a bit disappointed by it. The romance was more than I prefer.


((sorry for the very horrible picture))

To tell you the truth, I really wasn’t very interested in this book when I got it. I don’t know, but the cover didn’t look like something I would like (yes, I’m one of those people who judge a book by its cover but don’t we all really??). However, I really enjoyed it!

Yes, I finally have my very own paperback copy of London in the Dark!!! My kind little brothers, who knew I wanted it, pooled their resources and bought it for me. ❀ I have posted my original review on here (London in the Dark BLOG TOUR!!!), but my sentiments did change slightly after I read it for the second time. (Sorry, I don’t think I have updated my review though… :/ )Β Β You can read my first review here.

I got this book from one of my brothers. I have started it, and it is much different from your usual ghost story; I might post my review on here when I have finished it. πŸ˜‰

I greatly enjoyed this book! It was a romance, which I don’t usually read, but I loved it because it had a twist. πŸ˜‰

With this book it was kind of like how I felt about Left to Die; I had high expectations and they weren’t completely met. I did enjoy it, but I got annoyed by the main character. πŸ˜›

One of my best friends gave me this wonderful book, and I highly recommend it. It was very good!

Okay, so I have saved my favorite new find for last. I had read the Great Illustrated Classics version of this book, and it was okay, but not my favorite. The unabridged version, though? ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! ❀ It is so much better than the other!

Well, that turned into a mini-review-ish post. πŸ™‚ My very first!

Well, I hope you all enjoyed this post!



When is your birthday?

Have you read any of these books?

    I’m excited to read your review of “The Legend of Annie Murphy”! I read it years ago. I remember being dubious most of the way through the book, but I loved the conclusion and how the author pulled everything together at the end. Isn’t it strange how when you really like a book you want everyone else to feel the same way about it? I hope you like The Legend of Annie-Murphy, too. πŸ™‚ Have you read other books by the author?

      Well, in that case, maybe I’ll post my review on here soon! Probably not this week, since I already have something lined up… but we’ll see. πŸ™‚
      Yes, I have read some books by Mr. Peretti, and I usually like them, but they can be pretty scary/suspenseful, so I wouldn’t recommend reading them right before bed. πŸ™‚

    Er, I think I’ve read two of them. You probably know what they are, lol. Even though I gave you the Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, I never actually read it. Perhaps I’ll borrow it from you some time, if that’s alright. πŸ˜‰
    I want a purity ring. I needs it. I’ve heard of one, but for some reason I never ask my parents for one. Maybe I hope they’ll figure it out somehow? Why do I expect people to read my mind?? lol

    Happy late birthday!! Have fun with all your reading — I think I have read all but two of these and they are all fun =)

    Your ring is pretty — my parents gave me a purity ring for my 18 birthday and I absolutely love it!

    • ilovereading2 says:

      Oh, that’s great! I only actually know two people who have one (and I didn’t know they had one until after I got mine), and I can’t say I’ve heard of them before, so I was totally surprised when they gave it to me. ❀ It was a great surprise!! πŸ™‚
