My Latest Book Haul
So, my book buying ban is over and I have recently gone to town on books. Not to mention I work in a publishing house so I get a lot of free books as is… but oh well. It’s time for a haul!
You can never have too many books!
Most of the books I’m including in this book haul were bought from charity shops, but there were also a few books from World of Books and Amazon.
I have a to get through so let’s jump in to the book haul.
I’ve mentioned this book a lot in past and that’s because I really enjoyed it! It’s one of my top books of the year. I read it on kindle, but because I enjoyed it so much I really wanted a physical copy of it. So I treated myself to a £3.99 hardback copy of it.
I’ve had a real urge to read this series lately, mostly because I haven’t read a decent YA Fantasy series in ages! This hard copy covers was £3.99 on World of Books. Fingers crossed I enjoy it.
I’ve recently gone through my Amazon wish list and really reduced it, buying the books I still really wanted by deleting the ones that I no longer cared about. This was one of the books I really wanted to get so when I found it for £4.99 on World of Books I jumped at it. It’s a non-fiction collection of advice from YouTuber Anna Newton but it appeals to my sense of decluttering and organisation.
When you bought two books on World of Books you got one for free and this was also on my Amazon Wishlist, and has been since I went to New York City, so I thought I would treat myself. It’s a contemporary fiction about a woman in the magazine industry who goes on break only to come back and find that her assistant is wheedling her way into her job.
I recently wanted the famous movie with Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie for the first time and really enjoyed it. So when I found this for only £1 in a charity shop I thought I would buy it. It’s a really interesting looking book and very short so I’m sure I could get through it in an afternoon or two.
Another book from my New York City Wishlist that I found for £1 in a charity shop. I couldn’t deny myself another Wishlist book so I picked it up.
I have listened to both of these books as audiobook, and now have the pleasure of working with Laura on her fiction books at HarperCollins. I didn’t have physical copies of her books but I really enjoy her work so I couldn’t pass these up when I found them in a charity shop.
This was another charity shop find and a book that has been on my Amazon wish list since I first got Amazon prime nearly five years ago! I found it for £1.99 and immediately bought it. I don’t face sexism at work – this is a manual for how to combat that – but I enjoy reading feminist texts and this has some great illustrations in it.
I’ve watched a few of Estee’s YouTube videos and listened to a few episodes of her podcast but don’t know much about her. I found this for only £2.99 and liked the look of it – it is full of anecdotal stories about her life as an immigrant from Canada in the UK and how she has risen to the top of her influencer game.
Last, but not least I found Horrorstor in a charity shop for just £2m, just in time for Halloween. I’ve seen this book on Booktube before and it’s kind of a play on an IKEA catalogue mixed with a horror story. Sounds ridiculous but also great. Perfect for October.
There we go. There are all the books I have hauled this month – so far. I’ve also got a few red-spine vintage classics, which I collect but there have been too many to name. Not to mention all the books I’ve got from work. I’m going to have to invest in another bookcase, or a bigger flat, soon to accommodate them all.
But for now though I’m off to read! I have plenty of books to get through and not enough space to house them so let’s get reading.
