Book Haul

Not content with working my way through my collection of The Famous Five. I went ahead and got the complete collection of The Secret Seven as well – because, let’s face it…I have no control.

Book Haul

I have been lured in yet again by The Book People. This time because two of the series I have added to my wishlist in the past year, were moved to the ‘clearance’ part of the website. I know that The Book People have had money troubles in the past, and that their future is…

Birthday Book Haul

You may or may not know, but I turned 30 last Thursday (27/02). In true bookworm heaven, I received a few books from friends and family, a ton of book tokens (= £70), and I also treated myself to some books. I was already swimming in tbr books before my birthday, but now I feel…

Book Haul – The Famous Five

I’ve been doing quite well the last 3 weeks in not buying any books and this month, I’m on a weekly budget of only spending £100. BUT, I couldn’t pass up this opportunity. It’s something that has been on my wishlist on The Book People for over a year and I’ve been waiting for a…

Book Haul – I have Sinned!

Here’s the thing. I already knew I was going to break the ban this time. I had to go into town, I was feeling happy about life, I knew I wanted to visit Waterstones. I got some money for Christmas that I was going to put into savings but in a ‘spur of a moment’…

Book Haul | Jan 9th

It only took me 9 days to break my promise and buy books! Really, there is no stopping me! I am my own worse enemy! I didn’t buy them because I was bored – which is usually the culprit. I bought them because I’d just finished ‘The One’ by John Marrs and wanted to read…

Travel Ramble – Tignes No 4

I skied. I wish that statement filled me with happiness but actually I’ve had a terrible day. It took me about 3 hours to get down one run from the top to the bottom of the mountain. I was crying hysterically, suffering continuous panic attacks, swearing and angrily hating myself. I have tight calves, I’ve…

Book Haul – Christmas Day

As bookworms, we all hope that we’ll get books on Christmas Day. I didn’t think I’d get many from the conversations dropped by various family members. However, I managed to walk away from Christmas with a total of 10 books. So far, I have read 1 of them and am currently halfway through another (this…

Book Haul

I’ve been trimming the fat again and adding more books to the pile. I’ve now split my tbr shame list to represent kindle books, children’s and young adult books and crime/thrillers. Only because my tastes have changed dramatically this year and I wanted to see what I had on my shelves in a clearer way….

Black Friday Book Haul

I got 10 books in the Black Friday sale. None of these books are on any of my Christmas lists, I was very careful not to buy any that might be gifted later in the year. They are all crime/thriller books. I didn’t really spend any money either. £24.00 for 10 books. Gotta love a…
