I don’t think there’s anything better to do if you wake up sad than to drive to your favourite book shop and buy loads of books. So that’s what i did.
I’ve spoke about my favourite bookshop before – it’s just outside of Buxton in the north of England. It’s somewhat of a warehouse bookstore, with discount prices of pretty much any genre of book you can think of. They lack on new releases, but have a lot of other cheap books to discover. You can really find some hidden gems in there. Especially in the YA section if you look hard enough.
As i said, i woke up the morning before a pretty big work day and after a week of stressful work, pretty sad. So it was suggested i took a trip to my favourite book shop! I’ve started to limit myself to a £20.00 spend each time i go, just so i don’t end up picking up too much that i don’t actually want or i won’t read.
I picked up eight books for my budget this time, and luckily there were some that i’ve been after for quite some time.
- Ink by Alice Broadway
- Postcards From The Edge by Carrie Fisher
- Nothing Tastes As Good by Claire Hennessy
- The Day Of The Triffids by John Wyndham
- Birdy by Jess Vallance
- Sofia Khan Is Not Obliged by Ayisha Malik
- Needlework by Deirdre Sullivan
- Things We Couldn’t Explain by Betsy Tobin
I’ve been after a cheap copy of Ink for quite some time now, so i’m very happy that i picked that up. I also am pretty excited to read Sofia Khan Is Not Obliged after reading Ayisha Malik’s story in the A Change Is Gonna Come anthology.
The great thing about this book shop is that they also have a cafe, so you can take a break from book shopping and have a drink – i personally use this time to debate my purchases. I love this shop so much, i usually spend a few hours in there and completely immerse myself in books.
I think it’ll be a while until i venture there again so i have a chance to read through the ones that i bought this time. Let me know in the comments if you’ve read any of these before!

what are some of your favorite genres to read and what books do you recommend when talking about books? jw
Eight books for £20? I need to go here haha.
I’ve read Ink, Nothing Tastes as Good, Birdy, and Needlework and they’re all excellent, although a bit tough to read at times.
Love your haul.
