I thought I’d do a bit of a post about my feelings on the kind of books I want to read this year as well as a bit of a haul. I’ve never actually done a book haul (yes, this is clearly Sophie, not Sarah!) so this is kind of my first one! I received so many books as gifts for Christmas and bought quite a few myself in December so I figured it would be a good idea to showcase them a little. Continue reading
Very late in 2017 i uploaded a book haul which i said would be my last book haul in a long time. And then i went to London. We had this trip planned for a long time and saw Harry Potter and The Cursed Child while we were there (which was my second watch and just as incredible as the first). But this meant that i also had some free time to go to Foyles.
Christmas has been and gone (and we completed Blogmas, woo) which means for many of us, our book hauls are coming. I absolutely love seeing what books others got for Christmas. In fact our group chat of bloggers made sure to put our book hauls in the chat on Christmas morning.
It’s been quite a while since me and Sophie went out on a day trip together, and even longer since we went out specifically to buy books together. We’ve always said that Christmas is the perfect excuse to spend time with each other and do the things we’ve wanted to do for a while. So i took Sophie to one of my favourite book shops.
It’s been quite a while since i last uploaded a book haul to the blog. I’ve been slowly accumulating a lot of books since then on numerous trips or ‘treat’ days (every day). I managed to pick up quite a few new releases and had a shop around in some charity shops for some older novels i’d been after. This could be a big haul so make a brew.
My YALC book haul from last year looks extremely disappointing next to this years. I made sure when i was there that i set myself a limit on how much i wanted to spend, only got books i really wanted and let myself grab some ARCs i might not normally read to try out some new genres. I met all those criteria, but i still ended up with a lot of books…
It’s been a while since i’ve uploaded a full book haul including everything i’ve bought recently. After saying to myself that i was on a buying ban until after YALC and ultimately failing that rule for myself, i’ve ended up with quite a few books.
