January-February Book Haul

I've been inspired by the lovely Steph, of Nourish ME, to share my book hauls independently of my usual haul posts. Especially as I've been buying an awful lot of books recently. So here's all the books (most of them, at least, as I'm sure I've forgotten to photograph a few) that I picked up in January and February. 

This is a not-so-little charity book haul from that time in February I went brunching and book shopping with the lovely Steph, mentioned above! She's a terrible influence on me. I was only intending to come away with one, maybe two, books, but instead ended up coming away with this huge stack! It's amazing what books you can find in charity shops, though. Hausfrau and The Snowman are two books I've been really eager to read, but never got around to picking up until now.

Another not-so-little second-hand book haul from an impromptu trip to Hay-On-Wye with hubby and the in-laws. I found so many amazing books in a variety of second-hand bookshops in Hay, and came away with quite the haul! I was living my best life, to be honest; leisurely browsing shelves and shelves of second-hand books, and coming away with quite the haul!

Supermarkets are my go-to for books now. They're all so much cheaper than in bookshops like Waterstones or WHSmith. And although it makes me sad not to support bookshops, independent or chain, I'd rather spend my hard-earned cash and get more for my money. Which is exactly what I get when I shop for books in supermarkets. I got these four books, two hardbacks and two paperbacks, for under £25! And all whilst shopping for the groceries. 

I mean, there's a reason why I love grocery shopping so much. Because I know I can usually find one or two book bargains whilst I'm doing our weekly shop. I swear, I spend more time in the book aisles of our local supermarkets than I do any other aisle! Shopping wouldn't take me quite so long if there weren't books to peruse (and buy!) This was another supermarket haul, Tesco I think!

Yet another supermarket book haul. I read Dear Amy, by Helen Callaghan, last year and loved it, so I was excited to pick up her new book, Lies. I hope it's as good as her last. Normal, by Graeme Cameron, grabbed my attention as soon as I read the blurb, and I'm really excited to delve into this one!

I should have retaken this photo for this post, or photoshopped out the teddy bear and mug. But I really couldn't be bothered. So there it is. Remember Me When You're Sad, by Maggy Van Eijk, was raved about by Steph, so I decided to pick it up on Amazon whilst I was purchasing a few other books at the same time. 

Do you buy a lot of books?

  1. This has reminded me I really need to get down to my local library to pick up some books. I haven't been reading properly for the past couple of months and I am definitely feeling the loss, so this post has given me some well needed inspiration for when I next head out, so thank you Aimee! - Tasha
