Three things I have bought recently. I've had this wild urge to buy things lately so this is probably just the beginning.
- UNIQLO striped tee. Yes, I guess I do already have a striped t shirt exactly like this one but I rarely see striped shirts that I 100% like at a suitable price point, so I thought I'd buy a backup. It's actually a men's small, but the cashier told me that a lot of the girls who worked there got one for themselves (there isn't an equivalent in the ladies' range, for some reason).
- The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton. I talked about it here, I read it as an e-book and liked it so much I wanted a hard copy for re-reads. Plus, it's a pretty cover.
- The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I also read this on the Kindle and wanted a copy for my shelf, I really enjoyed it. The premise of the book made it sound like it was going to be really pretentious but it didn't turn out to be. It's about a group of college students and it starts off with a murder - the story is about why it happened. I got really sucked into the setting, characters, and relationships. It's not a happy book, it's pretty tragic actually, but enjoyable to read. Apparently it's never been adapted for the screen, I would love for a movie or mini-series (for The Luminaries too, actually).
