March Book Haul
Ok, I have a problem. Over the past couple of weeks I've bought 18 books, well 19 if you count the one that had to go back because it was SO scuffed and ripped. I know I posted a large book haul a week ago but I needed more books and Amazon prime is a dangerous thing. I hardly read at all last year and this year I'm definitely changing that. I can't stop reading, watching booktube and buying books; here's my latest book haul.

- Harry Potter and the Philosophers by J.K. Rowling: I have watched all of the Harry Potter films more times than I want to admit and I've read the Deathly Hallows book a few years ago but I haven't read any of the others *hangs head in shame*. I can't wait to read this book as I adore her writing, it's so easy to read and it's almost comforting, if that makes sense. Also I love this cover, it's so pretty and feels almost rubberised - it was less than £3 as well so I had to buy it. Obviously.

- The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine: I have heard so many good things about this book and the plot sounds so interesting and exciting! It's a kind of snow white retelling but it sounds so much better. Also the cover is so simplistic but so gorgeous.

- A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson: I have read a few samples of his books and I love his writing style so when I saw this book, used on amazon, I had to buy it and unlike the book I had to send back, this one came in really good condition.

- Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard: Again another book I have heard so much about on Youtube, especially by American youtubers. To me it sounds like a really interesting and new but familiar world; I can't wait to start it.

- The Queen Of The Tearling by Erika Johansen: I wanted to read this book as firstly, I've heard nothing but positive reviews and secondly it is being made into a film featuring Emma Watson - she's a fantastic actress and I can't wait for the film.

- The Silkworm by J.K. Rowling: I read the first book in this series last month and I adored it, I reviewed it a few weeks ago. I really connected to the two main characters, especially Cormoron Strike so I'm excited to see where their adventures leads them next.

Have you read any of these books? What books have you bought recently?

  3. You haven't read Harry Potter?! That is crazy to me. I know I should probably broaden my horizons but they're really the only books I return to time and time again. I need to up my reading though, I'd love to hear some recommendations once you've read these!

  8. I enjoyed Red Queen, I read it in January and I've read the second one too, Glass Sword, which came out in Jan too. I didn't know The Queen of the Tearling is being made into a film! I've been wanting to read it for months and I already have book two so I need to get my act together!
