Booklet Thursday (Week 1)

Booklet Thursday is a new MEME hosted and created by myself aka Nevey @ Le Vanity Victorienne and with the help of my sweet friend Kate from The Never Ending BookShelf

Booklet Thursday is about our history with books. Starting from seeing the cover of that book, story on buying or getting that book, how the books's characters effected you and all about you and the characters effects on your mind and feelings, why you even bought? or if you have a funny story behind it; please share it with us.Well all just have a story with a Book rither Happy, Sad or Funny...

My today's pick is The Gemma Doyle Trilogy by Libba Bray.  

My story begins in a hot summer's day; I was looking for some books online and I have seen the tirology many and many times but in that verey same day I really wanted them but I remembered that it's not easy to find YA Novels in Egypt. I sight and at that same verey moment my father told me that we are going downtown for shopping and it was fine but when I enterd the bookstore it was really the happiest shopping time
For me I found the 3 books at the same time. I wanted to scream and jump from happniess. I bought the novels and I went back hom with my sweet new books that I never imagined how is it easy to get them?!

From the frist page of A Great and Terrible Bueaty I fail in love with Libba Bray's writing way. Her characters and plot.
Reading Rebele Angels was my heaven.
Currently reading The Sweet Far Thing and ridding the fantasy wind.

What I have learnt from the novels is believing in myself, my power to change and even the smallest thing can make a big change. Trust your friends and corsetes hurts like hell but I still love them...

Share with the world:


  1. I really like how you did this. Great job!

  2. Cool meme! And I loved your story. It sounds like you were really *meant* to read the Gemma Doyle trilogy. :)

    "Corsets hurt like hell but I still love them..." That is hilarious! And I agree. Though, I've never actually worn one before. lol

    I might join you with this meme sometime soon. (:


  3. We really meant for each other; I fall for the series and I feel that I do belong to the Victorian era more than ever...

    I hope you join it so soon :)
