December Book Haul!

Hey guys! I can’t believe that it’s 2018 on Monday! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas with your families and got really nice gifts. I hope you don’t mind my lack of posting this week. I posted every day last week so that I could take Christmas off and just have a break from my blog. I love blogging but you definitely need to take a break from it every once in a while. I got two books for Christmas and then I bought one.

Artemis1) Artemis by Andy Weir

I knew I was getting this book for Christmas because I asked for the signed edition from Waterstones. I had no idea it was a special edition limited to 2,000 signed copies. You open the book and one of the pages at the front has the number and mine is 1220. That’s really neat! I’m a bit nervous about reading this now though because lots of people have given it low ratings and said Andy Weir tries too hard to make the main character a female version of Mark Watney from The Martian. Apparently it comes across as forced and awkward which is not good. But I really loved The Martian and I was really excited for this so I’ll still see if it’s any good!

Ridiculous October Book Haul!

Hey guys! I am calling this the Ridiculous October Book Haul because I bought a ridiculous amount of books this month! Stating the obvious, much? I honestly think this crazy book obsessed demon possessed me at the start of the month and went on a massive splurge in Waterstones. In our defence, I bought some beautiful books and scored a few signed ones!

1) La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One by Philip Pullman

I was seriously excited for this book and when I saw Waterstones had a special signed edition limited to 5,000 copies for £35 I had to get one. I had to. So imagine my relief when they’d all sold out and I’d pre-ordered one the day they released them on the website. But imagine my disappointment when I got home and noticed it was damaged. I was heartbroken. I took it back to Waterstones but obviously I couldn’t get another because they’d all sold out. They knocked £10 off so I only ended up paying £25 but it still kind of annoys me. Despite the fault it is a truly beautiful book and they’ve done an amazing job. Alongside this I also got the £10 hardback so these two books were an expensive buy.

September Book Haul!

Hey guys! Sorry for not posting on Friday but I’d just got back off holiday and I was bloody exhausted! I didn’t have time to plan a post so to make up for it, I am posting today instead! I spent two weeks in California and it was absolutely amazing… I loved every second of it and went to some incredible places. I really missed the UK though and couldn’t wait to get home.

I bought a lot of books this month. I bought seven books. Three of them were pre-orders and then whilst I was on holiday I visited Barnes & Noble where I purchased four books. I have to say, anyone who gets to visit that shop on a regular basis is seriously lucky. It was one of the most magical bookshops I have ever been in. I was just blown away by all the beautiful books and I wanted to buy so many. I had to restrain myself! I’ll start with the books I pre-ordered and then get into my Barnes & Noble purchases!

1) Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

I bought two copies of Wonder Woman! How could I not? Waterstones had a signed limited edition hardback and it’s absolutely gorgeous! I read this book on holiday and sadly the paperback got a bit trashed. I hate myself for it because I hate damaging books but when I was travelling here, there and everywhere it couldn’t be helped. I did like this book but it was a bit slow and I wanted more action. I liked Leigh Bardugo’s writing but I wasn’t blown away by it. I’ll have a full review coming soon!

August Book Haul!

Hey guys! I can’t believe it’s nearly September already, it’s going by so fast this year. I hope you have all had a great month and bought lots of awesome books. I bought a lot of crime thrillers this month. I called in a bargain bookshop and they had 3 books for £5 so I had a good hunt and found some decent looking crime thrillers! I’ve also been sent two copies for review which is exciting! So lets get into it!

Tracer1) Tracer by Rob Boffard

I was so excited to read this book but then I read the reviews and they aren’t that great, dammit! The cover and the synopsis really drew me in because they are trapped on a space station with a madman. To me it sounded really interesting because is he murdering people? You can’t exactly run from a murderer on a space station. I will still read it but I’m a little disappointed now and worried I won’t like it. It sounded too good to be true!

July Book Haul!

Hey guys! It’s that time of the month again where I tell you about the books I bought this month! I’m quite pleased with the amount of books I’ve bought and I’m really excited to read them because they are all new releases! I actually saved quite a bit of money on them too because one was in clearance and the other two were buy one get one half price! So let’s get into it!

One Of Us Is Lying.jpg1) One Of Us Is Lying by Karen McManus

I have been wanting to read this book ever since I first saw it on NetGalley. For some reason I didn’t request it I think I had too many other books to read at the time? So I’ve been impatiently waiting for it to be released in paperback and it looks so pretty! It has red sprayed edges and it looks so gorgeous against the white and red cover. I’m definitely going to be reading this soon, it sounds amazing. All I know is that five students go into detention but only four leave alive. It’s the perfect thriller! I never knew I needed this book in my life until now. I really hope it doesn’t disappoint because I am so excited to read it finally!

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!

May Book Haul!

Hey guys! So excited to share my book haul with you this month! I purchased seven books this month but technically it was only four books because I bought multiple copies of two of them. I’m sure you can guess one of them since I made a post on it recently! I was also sent two books for review by the lovely people at Titan Books! Sending lots of love to them! I have a lot of crime thrillers to read now and I can already feel my blood pumping because they sound so thrilling and scary!

He Said:She Said1) He Said/She Said by Erin Kelly

I fell head over heels in love with this cover. Just look at it! I’d never heard of this book but when I saw that cover I immediately raced out to buy it. Cover goals right there. It’s so captivating and stunning. I have heard so many great things about this book and a lot of people said it is full of so many awesome twists and turns that you won’t see coming. This sounds amazing! I am so excited to read it!
