At No Money 4 Books, we know that it’s just not possible to buy ourselves every book or bookish item that we’d like, but we should treat ourselves once in awhile! Inspired by Parks and Recreation’s Treat Yo Self Day, this is a chance to share what bookish item you treated yourself to this week. It can be a book you couldn’t wait any longer for, a great deal you just couldn’t pass up, or even reading paraphernalia such as a shiny new e-reader, cool bookmarks, cute reading glasses… nothing’s too small to include on Treat Yo Self Thursday! Please link back to No Money 4 Books in your post and leave a comment with a link to your Treat Yo Self Thursday post. And if you didn’t Treat Yo Self to something this week – do it now!
This week I treated myself to a copy of Red Rising by Pierce Brown. I have been on a waitlist a mile long in an attempt to get this book from the library, so when I saw the ebook was going for $1.99 on B&N, I snatched it up without thinking twice. It gets billed as similar to Ender’s Game and Hunger Games, and while I typically scoff at such high-flung comparisons, I have actually read a lot of good reviews about this one. I’m certainly not expecting it to be as good as either of those two books, since setting the bar that high would be setting myself up for disappointment, but I am really looking forward to an exciting scif-fi read. It takes place on Mars – it’s got to be good, right?
