Book Haul

Letterbox Love (5)

Letterbox Love is a UK based feature where book bloggers showcase the books that they received that week, be they eBooks, paperbacks, hardbacks or any other format. It is hosted by Lynsey from Narratively Speaking.
I have a really good haul this week. I ended up going to three different book shops, managed to be given a book and went to a charity shop where I got extra lucky. I also had to go to the library so I have a very big haul.
Bought/ Book Shop Haul:

Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare- I read Clockwork Prince last weekend and had to buy this because I couldn’t face not knowing what was going to happen. I’ve already read it and will be posting my review in the coming week.
The Host by Stephenie Meyer- This is one of my friend, Lucy’s, favourite books and she’s been bugging me to read it for ages so I decided to pick it up this week and I’m really close to the end. I’m going to watch the movie adaptation this week.
By Any Other Name by Laura Jarratt- I loved Skin Deep and so am really excited to read this one. 
Pretty Bad Things by C.J. Skuse- This is the only C.J. Skuse book I haven’t read and I’m looking forward to reading it because her books make me laugh so much.
I bought this later in the week which is why I have put it on a separate photo.
Finding Cherokee Brown by Siobhan Curham- Although I haven’t read Dear Dylan yet, I’ve heard great things about this and am really looking forward to reading it.
Divergent by Veronica Roth- Although one I’ve already read, Divergent is not a book that belongs on my bookshelf due to me borrowing it from the library when I read it. This was really cheap at The Works and I’m so glad that I’ve finally got it, especially as the movie covers will be coming out soon.
City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare- I’m trying to obtain all of Cassandra Clare’s books so that I can add them to my shelf because they’re one of my favourite series of all time.
If I Stay by Gayle Forman- This isn’t a book that I’ve really wanted to read but I can’t resist a bargain and it does sound really good.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green- This was my Grandma’s copy of The Fault in Our Stars and, as she’s already read it, she said that she would give it to me so that I can pass it around my friends which is exactly what I’ll be doing. I’m so excited for them to read it!
Charity Shop Haul: 

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare- Again, this is a book that I’ve already read but I’m really glad that I’ve added it to my collection. Go Shadowhunters!
Mates, Dates & Inflatable Bras by Cathy Hopkins- I’ve read quite a few of Cathy Hopkins’ other books and I’ve been looking for this one for ages but never succeeded. I’m really looking forward to starting it.
Magus of Stonewylde by Kit Berry- I must confess that this is my third copy of this book. I’m at this moment imagining my room full of copies but, to me, that really wouldn’t be a bad thing. I’m obsessed!

City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare- I had to get this is as soon as I’d finished Clockwork Princess because I couldn’t let go of the Shadowhunters. My feels were all over the place and reading this was one of the only things that I thought would cure it- it worked! 
I am so pleased with everything I received this week; I seem to have bought a lot of Cassandra Clare books! 

What did you get this week? Don’t forget to link back to your own posts and I’ll check them out. Happy reading! 🙂

    Charity shops are amazing! I work in one so the temptation to come home with books every time is quite high 😉 I’m like you in that I don’t own a lot of my favourite books. I still need to by The Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series one day. I borrow them from my friend at the moment. She’s just lent me Clockwork Princess so I can’t wait to finally read it! I’ll be looking out for your review of that 😀 Great selection Lucy – enjoy all your books! 🙂

    Oh, wow! You have had an awesome week! I love bookstores and charity shops, hurrah for cheap books 😀

    I have Clockwork Prince on my TBR pile and I MUST read it soon! I haven’t read one bad thing about Clockwork Princess so I’m dying to get my hands on a copy >.< I also need to read The Mortal Instruments series. I have seen you fan-girling about Cassandra Clare on Twitter so I must read them soon! The Host looks great and I really want to read it, despite not being a fan of Twilight. I hope you’re enjoying it. If I Stay looks good too, Gayle Foreman is an author that I’ve been meaning to try for a while. Your Grandma is so nice to give you her copy of The Fault in Our Stars, I have three copies and they are very precious to me! 😉 Happy reading, Lucy! x

      You must read them both soon, Zoe!

      The Host is a million times better than Twilight so don’t worry about that.

      Thank you, Zoe! 🙂

    You have to read If I Stay soon! It is amazing (Gayle Forman is amazing full stop.) I really like the look of By Any Other Name as well, and Pretty Bad Things is pretty funny 🙂 Enjoy your books!

    I listened to some of the Mates & Dates series, they’re quite fun, aren’t they?

    And I am curious about The Host, everyone says it’s better than Twilight
