Books I got for my 13th birthday

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. 🙂

For those of you who don’t know, my birthday was on the 7th. 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 and give a link to my review on Goodreads (except for the ones that I haven’t read yet).

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 in it. Read my review to find out why.


((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! I wrote a really short review that really didn’t do it justice… sorry! 🙂

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 I did edit it a bit (hehehe- get it? Edit It a Bit? 😛 ) after I read it for the second time. You can read my edited 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. 😉

I greatly enjoyed this book! It was a romance, which I don’t usually read, but I loved it because it had a twist. Read more in my review (but a warning: if you click the spoiler tags, you will most certainly be spoiled. 😛 )

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. Click here for my full review.

One of my best friends gave me this wonderful book, and I highly recommend it. You can find my review here.

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! Read my full (if fan-girly) review here.

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

Oh, and one more non-book-related thing: I got a purity ring for my birthday! My parents gave it to me, and I love it. So pretty! ❤ Picture below:


Sorry, this isn’t that good of a pic… :/

Well, I hope you all enjoyed this post!



Is your birthday in the month of September?

Have you read any of these books?

Do you have a purity ring?

    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. 🙂 Have you read other books by the author?

    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. 😉
    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!

      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!! 🙂
