June Book Haul & Wrap Up!

Hey guys! I’ve decided to do my book haul and wrap up post a little earlier this month because I have quite a few posts planned for next week and didn’t want to end up posting my wrap up really late. The reason I have combined these two posts is because I only purchased three books this month! I am very happy with that and I did really well with it because I bought one from the clearance section in Waterstones and then another I bought pretty cheap from The Works using a voucher I had. The last one came with my June FairyLoot box so there is an unboxing for that coming your way! This means that I am having to combine my book haul and wrap up post otherwise my book haul post will be super short!

Book haul:

A Court of Wings and Ruin

1) A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

I am so excited to have this!!!!!! I won it in a giveaway and I rarely win them so I was completely flabbergasted! I was dancing around my room, I was so happy! The images of the UK cover online do not do it any justice! It is absolutely beautiful in real life and I’m just ecstatic to hold it in my hands… ah, it made me so happy. I’m in awe of the dress on the cover, the girl who designed this has some serious talent!

Authors I Would Love to Meet!

Hey guys! I have been trying to think of new posts that I can do and I came across this old Top 5 Wednesday post and thought it would be quite fun to do! I’m sure some of you already know a few authors I’d like to meet so lets get into it!

1) Cassandra Clare 

You all knew Cassie was going to be on this list! It was a very obvious choice because I looooove her! So freaking much! I have a signed book courtesy of Waterstones but I have sadly never had the opportunity to meet her. She goes to big cities and I don’t really live in a well known city and the ones I do live near she never comes to! Very sad times. I would love to listen to her talk for hours about Shadowhunters and the future series she is planning to write! She is my auto-buy author, I am just so in love with her writing and her characters. I would love to meet her!

A Betrayal in Blood

Currently reading:

Sherlock Holmes: A Betrayal in Blood by Mark A. Latham: I am halfway through this and I’m really enjoying it! I love reading Sherlock Holmes books and this one actually involves Dracula too! It focuses on what happened in Dracula by Bram Stoker, mainly Lucy Westenra’s death and the aftermath of it all. Holmes believes those hailed as heroes are not what they seem and he and Watson find themselves targeted at every turn. I can’t wait to write a full review for this!

Book Unhaul!

Hey guys! I’ve recently had a clear out of some of my books and they are just books I couldn’t finish, series I couldn’t get into/finish and just books from university that I have no interest in keeping! I thought it’d be interesting to share some of them with you just because I like watching/reading other people’s unhauls! So lets get into it!

1) Angel by L.A. Weatherly & City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

I believe this is a trilogy and the synopsis sounded really interesting. My friend read the first book and recommended it to me because she thought I’d enjoy it. Sad to say I couldn’t really get into it. I wasn’t a fan of the writing, I didn’t really find it that engaging. I didn’t get very far in before I decided it wasn’t worth reading. I held on to it though for so long, like five years before finally deciding to just donate it to charity. I wanted to try and pick it up again but the way books are flying out recently I’m just not interested in this trilogy and have other books I want to read now. I’m just donating the movie cover of City of Bones by Cassandra Clare because I don’t really need it and it’s pretty much fallen apart because they make them dead cheap. If you are wondering why I have the movie cover it’s because it was about £4 in Asda and this was my first time reading it. I like the other covers so much better.
