With Our Last $20 is a feature here at The Broke & The Bookish wherein we answer the prompt of which book we'd purchase with the last $20 left in our pocket for each month -- be it new releases or older books...basically which ever book we'd be so excited to read that we'd be willing to spend the last $20 in our pockets on. I mean, we are The Broke and the Bookish after all. We'd no doubt live up to our name and forgo other things for a new book!
Champion by Marie Lu: EASILY this one. I would happily hand over my last $20 this month to find out what happens in this series! If you haven't checked out this series and like fast paced dystopians, do it!
The Princess in the Opal Mask by Jenny Lundquist: I have not heard a ton about this book, but I am really in the mood for fantasy these days. And there's a prince in it! :)
Just One Year by Gayle Forman: Do I even need to explain this choice? I loved If I Stay/Where She Went and devoured Just One Day. I must know how Allyson and Willem's story ends.
I had to participate this time because I actually bought a book. Well, an audio book. Many of you know my love of Bill Bryson, especially listening to him narrate his work, so of course I preordered his newest book, One Summer: America, 1927. It came out on October 1, so I technically spent $30 on it about a month ago, but I am only just listening to it now.
Duke of Midnight by Elizabeth Hoyt. This is the next book in my much loved Maiden Lane series. I think it is the sixth. I absolutely adore this series! It's so creative and fun and of course sexy. The last book I was a little disappointed in so I am anxious to see where this new one will fall on my "love it or loathe it" scale. As soon as I get to the bookstore, this is going to be in my hands!
Crewel by Gennifer Albin: I absolutely ADORE this cover and the book just sounds so good! I couldn't help myself and ordered it after all... I've been meaning to read it for ages!
