Book Haul #6

I told you that this would follow pretty soon. In fact, Book Haul #5 was only a week ago. Don’t worry, I didn’t acquire all these books in the week that I was away, I had been collecting them for a while and kept forgetting to actually write a post. Yes, I have already started Book Haul #7, but in my defence I haven’t been to a charity shop in a while so I had a tri-purchase accident this morning. I have been doing much better of late and thinking more before I hit buy on Amazon or snaffle all the books in the shop. I even went to big book shops in NYC and left every book on their shelves (it was difficult!)

So here’s a list of the books I have acquired recently!

Book Haul #4

Soooooo, we’re here again already. In my defence, this book haul is only being posted so close to the last one because I was struggling with personal issues surrounding writing posts. I haven’t bought all these books in a couple of weeks  That said, it’s still a large number of books to admit to buying, or receiving, since the beginning of the year. Last time round, (view here) I admitted that I was buying lots of books and…well…that’s not changed. I’ve bought 21 books this haul. That’s not too b….who am I kidding, it’s bad. I’m loving it.

Book Haul #3

Sooo….here we are again. I know what I said in mid-March OK? I know I admitted to an addiction, and I know that I told you all that I was thinking about limiting amount of books that I would buy (again) but then I didn’t. At all. In any way. Since March 19th, when I posted Book Haul #2, I have bought, received, been given, acquired, 23 books in total. OK, so on the day of posting, that averages more than a book every 3 days. Sigh. I give in.

*I’ve struggled with blogging recently so this is a little out of date and will be followed shortly by #4. Don’t judge Haha!!

Top Ten Tuesday: Book Cover Freebie

When you think about buying a new book, and you aren’t sure about what book you’re actually going to buy, a book cover plays a huge part in actually making that choice. I do love a shiny bright cover as much as the next guy. I also love a clever cover, or a new take on a classic. As you can tell, this is an awesome topic for me, so I have taken it and ran with it.

For all of you who don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is, or don’t know how to get involved, click here. The lovely folks at Broke and Bookish team together to produce a book related topic each week, and you simply list the top ten of that topic. Continue reading

T5W: Unrelated Book Covers

118368I’m starting to get out of the habit of preparing and writing posts with any form of planning, or before the last second of the day. It’s a shame, but at least I am keeping up with things, eh?

Book Travelling Thursday: Happy World Smile Day!

3in1-roald-dahlI’ve left it a little late to post today. I’d love to say it was because I was thinking hard about this week’s theme, but in reality, it was because I spent it on the phone to my Aunt, watching Gilmore Girls, going to the opticians (I apparently have very nice and oxygenated corneas??) and finally, going to Dobbie’s Garden Centre Christmas Evening.

Catía and Danielle set Book Travelling Thursday up with the intention of choosing a single book to encompass the theme of the week, that changes and is posted on the dedicated Goodreads group found here.  Continue reading
