That’s right, I did it again and got more books to add to the
collection of those on my bookshelf that I still have to read haha
But how can you stop? Especially when you go Op Shopping and find some for a bargain!
The Casual Vacancy – J.K Rowling
I’ve heard very mixed reviews about this book; either people
love it or hate it. I am going to give it a try anyhow because after reading
the Harry Potter how can you not admit that J.K is an absolutely talented writer? (Slytherin
rule!) I also saw the trailer for the TV series that is coming out on BBC that
is based on the story. That then got me interested in reading it!
Cost – $5 from an Op Shop (WHOA! I know right!)
Eat Pray Love – Elizabeth Gilbert
I’ve seen the movie before the book whoa. I know. One of the
things I hate doing. But at the time all I read was Fantasy so I never thought
I would have time to read the book. Now that my taste in books has grown I am
super keen to read the book, as I fell right in love with the movie! Looking
forward to the Italy part because of the food! Yum.
Cost – $3 from Op Shop (What?!)
The Divergent Series – Veronica Roth
Again a book when I watched the movie before reading the
book. These books were on my list to read, however my family forced me to watch them on
movie night a week ago. Which I am super glad about! I loved it. The day after
I bought the set and in just 4 days I’m nearly a quarter into the third book. I
haven’t read this fast in ages! I love the books so far and might do a review
on them. My first comparison was Hunger Games as both series I’ve read fast and easy. I love
these worlds were you can fully immerse yourself. (I took multiple tests I’m
divergent every time haha ;P)
Cost – All together $40 (one book usually costs $15-$30 so great
price) from Big W
Have any of you bought new books lately? Or read the ones above? Let me know if you liked them!
I love the smell of new books | Book Haul
is nothing better than the smell of new books (well there may be a few
things but it’s up there). Apart from the food and relaxing that
Christmas brings, receiving and giving books is one of my favourite
This year was no exception (I’ve also added a couple that I got myself as a sneaky present). I can’t wait to start reading!
