I’ve not bought many books at all this year (mainly because I’ve not had much money to spend and I’ve been trying to save tbh) but over the past six weeks or so I decided to treat myself to a few and figured I should do a little haul!

Now, I haven’t actually read Dumplin’ but I watched the film on Netflix the other day and I absolutely loved it. A lot of people have recommended me both the book and the film adaptation but I just never fully fancied it. I wasn’t sure if I’d be a fan.
