I made a promise to myself that i wouldn’t buy any more books until Christmas unless it was an important release. Similar to the rest of the starts of these posts, i’ve completely failed that, so here’s another book haul!

November 2018 Wrap-Up

After hitting my reading target last month, i figured my reading would slack a little if i’m honest. Then again, i do have the idea that i want to end my year of great reading on a high note, and continue to read books that i know i’ll love. Either way, i ended up having a much better reading month than i anticipated.

Starfish was one of my favourite reads of this year, i know the year isn’t done but i can’t imagine much will beat it for me. It was stunningly written and had wonderful characters. So admittedly i had extremely high hopes for Summer Bird Blue when i picked it up, and i’m glad it didn’t disappoint. Continue reading

June 2018 Book Haul

It’s been a very long time since i’ve done a book haul on the blog. I put myself on a book buying ban (except for holidays) a few months back, and it seems to be working quite well.

This month i took a trip up to Newcastle to see one of my friends and fellow bloggers, and not only did i have the best time, i also went and did a lot of book shopping.

It felt like everyone in the world was talking about Turtles All The Way Down before it’s very dramatic release recently. Without a doubt, it was one of the biggest things to happen in YA in the last few months, and everyone seemed to be picking it up as soon as it hit the shelves.

October Book Haul

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.
