October Book Haul

I'm one of those people who buys books even though I still have unread ones on my shelf. So, despite the fact that I have only finished one of the three books from my previous book haul, I decided it was about time for some new books! The release of Allegiant has given me a good excuse, right?

❝ One choice will define you.
What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?

The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.
I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that I've been really excited about the last book in the series. The wait, however, has been a little shorter for me than for most because I only read the first two books this summer (one very hangover afternoon in bed). Even though it hasn't been that long a wait, I was absolutely thrilled when I found out the last book came out. So there, the last book is now lying on my bedside table, waiting to be delved into. I'm slightly scared of what's going to happen (there are spoilers all around!) but obviously that's not going to stop me.

❝ For anyone who's ever wished to, but had trouble starting, keeping, or finishing a journal or sketchbook comes Wreck This Journal, an illustrated book that features a subversive collection of prompts, asking readers to muster up their best mistake- and mess-making abilities to fill the pages of the book (and destroy them). Acclaimed illustrator Keri Smith encourages journalers to engage in "destructive" acts-poking holes through pages, adding photos and defacing them, painting with coffee, and more-in order to experience the true creative process. Readers discover a new way of art and journal making-and new ways to escape the fear of the blank page and fully engage in the creative process.
One thing I should probably mention is that this book isn't meant for myself. I've bought it as a gift for a dear friend whom is very creative but probably hasn't done any painting or drawing since she started university (because life at uni is crazy and time is sparse, don't I know it!). I stumbled upon this book while watching a booksandquills review. Obviously I won't be reviewing this book but it seems extremely fun and a good way to stimulate your creative process!
