A Long Overdue Book Haul!

I used to LOVE writing book haul posts — I’d do them every week and join in with all the different features, from In My Mailbox to Letterbox Love to Stacking the Shelves. It was one of my favourite parts of blogging and I love talking about the books I’ve recently bought or received for review. So I decided that I would bring back the book haul feature! My lovely friend Stacey, who writes one of my favourite blogs Pretty Books, visited me at the weekend and we went around lots of the bookshops in Bath, which was obviously an excuse…

September Book Haul

I have a problem: I can’t stop buying books. My tastes have changed dramatically over the last few months so I’ve been discovering lots of new books and therefore can’t resist buying them all. I suppose there are worse problems to have! As soon as I saw the new re-issues of Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie‘s books, I had already mentally bought them. I’ve wanted to read her books for a long time, but have only so far gotten to We Should All be Feminists – which I think is essential reading for everyone! 4th Estate have brought out these new gorgeous editions of Purple Hibiscus, Half…

I Am Incapable of Only Buying One Book | A Book Haul

I’ve recently taken the effort to actually do something with my summer. So far, this has involved going outside of my comfort zone and getting outside of the house. On my own (or with my dog). I don’t find it easy to get out and walk around where there are other people because my anxious brain thinks of every bad scenario and I’d much rather be inside reading, but I did decide to offer an incentive at the end of it, so yesterday I decided to go book shopping. I walked down to my local Waterstones and WH Smith’s branch and…

Books, Books, Glorious Books! | Book Haul

The past few weeks have been seriously good for books. I seem to be buying a lot more than usual lately because there are so many books I’m excited to read, and I’ve also been very lucky to receive some from lots of lovely publishers. SO MANY AMAZING BOOKS! Spot the Difference by Juno Dawson is one of this year’s World Book Day titles and I’m currently reading it. Juno always delivers amazing books, so of course I’m loving it! Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell is the other YA World Book Day title for 2016 and tells the story of Elena, who is queueing outside her local…

Book Haul | The Festive Edition

I haven’t done a book haul in a long time on the blog, so I thought I would share some of the books I received in December for review. From Bloomsbury: Bloomsbury sent a lovely box of bookish goodies just in time for Christmas and it contained some amazing books! A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas – EEK! I am a huge fan of Sarah J. Maas’s books so I was over the moon when I found this in the package. I shall be starting it as soon as possible because I can’t resist! Apple and Rain by…

Letterbox Love (25)

Letterbox Love is a UK based feature where book bloggers showcase the books that they received that week, be they e-books, paperbacks, hardbacks or any other format. It is hosted by Lynsey from Narratively Speaking. I’m getting absolutely useless at posting book hauls, and I always have such fun writing them too – I tend to post them all on my YouTube channel, but I’m going to try and alternate between the two from now on so that the blog gets a bit of attention too. I’ve been very good lately and haven’t bought too much, but there are a few books…

These are all the books I’ve received since the start of February, and I’m so excited about all of them. To Review:  Mutant City by Steve Feasey sounds so exciting and I don’t read much apocalyptic, futuristic fiction so I’m sure this will be a nice change. Thank you to Bloomsbury for…

That is until today when I went into my town and bought nine books. Yes, I know! Don’t look at me like that! I’m addicted, okay? *scurries away* Bought The first place I stopped was WH Smiths…

Signed: Noughts and Crosses and Checkmate by Malorie Blackman – I still need to read Checkmate but I loved Noughts and Crosses. I read it when I was just starting to seriously get into YA and so it means quite…
