August Book Haul!

Hey guys! Tell me I’m not the only one who thinks August has gone by really fast?? I can’t believe I’m posting my book haul already! I hope you have all had a fantastic month of reading and book buying! Here’s what I purchased this month:

Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas: I have such a great story to tell on this! I pre-ordered both of these from Waterstones and the paperback version arrived fine (I love the purple sprayed edges, so beautiful!) but the hardback that was also signed arrived damaged. I’m always in my local shop and sadly this isn’t the first time one of my books has arrived damaged. I complained to them and they said since I’m a regular they will refund me and give me a brand new copy for free! So I actually didn’t even pay for my hardback copy in the end! I love the staff there so much, they are always so nice and cheery. Very grateful to them for giving me a copy for free! Saved me £12.99 to spend on another book!

July Book Haul!

Hey guys! I’ve had another successful month of buying hardly any books! I bought two books with my own money and then I received four for review (already read two of them). I’ve managed to read 8 books this month so I feel like I actually have a chance at getting my TBR down slowly, slowly. I’m not exactly sure what my TBR number is but it’s pretty high. I’ll have to do another count again! Anyway, here’s all the books I purchased/received this month:

You Were Gone by Tim Weaver: I honestly just bought this because the hardback was cheap and it seemed like a good deal! I need to read the rest of the books in the series first before I can read this one though. I might take some on holiday with me in September because I do really want to read them! If you haven’t heard of this series, it’s about a private investigator who finds missing people. Very good crime thrillers in my opinion. I think this is the 9th book? So you have to invest yourself in this series which I haven’t been able to do yet!

LIFEL1K3 by Jay Kristoff: I have no clue what this is about and just bought it because I like Jay Kristoff’s writing. I definitely want to read it though because just from looking at that insane cover, it seems like it will be really awesome! It has some amazing reviews too from what I can see on Goodreads. Just looking at the cover it looks very futuristic!

June Book Haul & Wrap Up!

Hey guys! I am combining my book haul and my wrap up post for this month because I had a terrible reading month. I have also been horrible for posting on my blog this month and I am truly sorry about that! I have hardly posted anything, it’s so bad. June has not been a good month for me in general but I’m feeling slightly better now, so hopefully I can read and post more in July!

Book haul:

 

The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter: This was literally £2.99 in Sainsbury’s! I couldn’t believe how cheap it was and immediately snatched a copy up. I have seen lots of amazing reviews for this so I can’t wait to read it now!

The Things We Learn When We’re Dead by Charlie Laidlaw: This was very kindly sent to me for review by the author and he actually signed it as well! That was such a lovely surprise and there was a cute little bookmark included as well. It sounds like a book I’d really like and the plot definitely seems unique! I’ll be reading this in July so keep an eye out for my review!

May Book Haul!

Hey guys! I can’t believe it’s June on Friday, this year is going by way, way too fast! I feel like this year has gone by in such a blur. I feel like my book haul posts are slowing down now and I’m actually reading more books that I am buying. My May haul was small and I am pleased with what I have acquired this month. Three I purchased myself and one was sent to me for review: So without further ado, here is my May haul:

Charmcaster1) Charmcaster by Sebastien De Castell

I am actually in love with the covers for this series! They are so bright, so eye-catching and so damn beautiful! I was so excited when this book came out and I’m actually already halfway through it now! Expect to see it on my May wrap up, woop! I ordered a signed copy, but unfortunately it arrived damaged! I’m getting a replacement though so fingers crossed that one arrives in perfect condition! I thought I’d read this now though so I can keep my replacement nice! I’m being sneaky. From how much I have read of this so far, I love how each book has new characters and is in a different setting, it makes it that more exciting! I still love Kellen, he is so adorable.

April Book Haul!

Hey guys! So, I have not been good this month. I am currently reading my sixth book of the month (hoping to read 7 but we will see) and I was like, yes! That’s another six books knocked off my TBR! You know what I went and did to celebrate? I bought another 5 books! I can’t even say I regret it though because they are such pretty, deserving books. But now I do feel like I have accomplished nothing with my TBR. Oh wellll! Here are the beautiful books I bought this month:

Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi: I saw this sitting in Waterstones looking all pretty and special and I just snatched it up and held onto it like it was the only copy in the world. Have I even read the Shatter Me series? No. I am just a sucker for books with pretty covers. I have no self control!

Scythe by Neal Shusterman: I have been seeing this cover everywhere and honestly I am intrigued. It sounds really good and I have been seeing great reviews for it. I wasn’t intending on buying it yet but because Restore Me had a buy one get one half price sticker I had to take advantage of that. So, naturally, when I saw Scythe with the same sticker and realised it was the only copy in the shop, that was that. It was coming home with me.

March Book Haul & Wrap Up!

Hey guys! I’m combining my book haul and wrap up post this month because I actually only bought two books and received one for review. I also bought the FairyLoot March box but I already have an unboxing for that up. I didn’t see the point in making a separate post for three books and instead just decided to put the two posts together. I’m actually really pleased with myself for only buying such a small amount of books! I’m actually reading a lot of the books I already own now rather than ebooks from NetGalley, etc! Anyway, enough rambling. Lets get into the post!

Book haul:

Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh: This was definitely a cover buy. I saw the cover, thought it was absolutely stunning and that I had to own it. It was £4.99 and I just couldn’t walk away and leave it sitting on the shelf. No idea what it is about to be honest but even just what’s on the cover makes it sound fantastic! Really hope it’s good!

Hangman by Daniel Cole: This is the second book in the Ragdoll series and I read it as soon as I got it. It was absolutely amazing, even better than the first book! It was so fast paced and unbelievably intense! I’m really excited to write a full review on it!

The Beloveds by Maureen Lindley: I was sent an ARC of this for review and they actually sent a cute little bottle of gin with it as well! In the past I have been sent items that are mentioned in the book, so now I’m curious to see where this item is mentioned! Maybe a character likes drinking it a lot? Anyway, this book sounds fantastic! The publisher compared it to Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier and I loved that so much so now I have really high hopes for this one!

Birthday Book Haul!

Hey guys! So today is my birthday and as you can guess, I asked for a lot of books! Lucky for me I didn’t buy any books this month! I received two from Titan Books and the rest I got as birthday presents! So without further ado, here are all the wonderful books I got for my birthday:

Friend Request by Laura Marshall: I’ve been eyeing this book up for ages because it sounds really creepy and like a thriller I would enjoy. I’ve been seeing it everywhere I go in bookshops and supermarkets so I finally caved and asked for it for my birthday.

Copycat by Alex Lake: I had no idea what this book was about when I asked for it, I just thought it had a really creepy and awesome cover. I now realise that it is similar to Friend Request as they both involve Facebook. But this one seems so creepy because some has the exact same profile as her with the exact same photos. Photos taken inside her house even. So I am really excited to find out more about this thriller!
