May-June Book Haul!

Recently, Facebook has been showing me adverts for books I might like on Amazon. This is fatal. As you'll see in my latest book haul post. Here's the books I've been buying lately...

Part Amazon, part Waterstone's book haul. I'd reserved I'll Be Gone In The Dark by Michelle McNamara and so popped into Waterstone's to pick it up. Whilst standing at the tills, I inevitably bought three more books. I just can't help myself!

Tesco's book haul this time. I swear, every time I go grocery shopping I come away with more books than groceries! I'll be giving away a copy of The Craftsman by Sharon Bolton in my review of the book, so keep an eye out for that!

Back in May, I went totally crazy and bought the majority of the books on my Amazon wish-list. Treat yo'self, right?

Another Amazon haul. I recently bought, and read, Rupi Kaur's milk and honey. I loved it, so immediately went on Amazon to buy Kaur's second collection, the sun and her flowers.

And I think this is the final part of the massive Amazon haul I did back in May. It was extreme, I can't remember what I spent on books in this one haul. But it was a lot. A hell of a lot. 

Steph is absolutely a bad influence! Whenever I go out charity book shopping with her, I come home with far, far too many books. But I did get a good deal on this stack. In the second charity bookshop we visited, all fiction was 3 for £5. So, of course, I grabbed six books. I also spotted a Mindfulness book I'd had my eye on on Amazon for ages; for just £5. When I got to the checkout, though, the shop assistant gave me the Mindfulness book for free! So that was pretty awesome.

And here's another Amazon haul. I buy the majority of my books from Amazon these days, as they are so much cheaper than in bookstores. Although I hate to think I'm contributing to the demise of the bookshop :( 

Steph and I are working on a very exciting blog collaboration which includes reading each other's three favourite books. These are Steph's three favourite books, and I'm excited to get reading them!

After really getting into poetry through Rupi Kaur's collections, I picked up Amanda Lovelace's collections on a recent Waterstone's visit. Not quite as good as Kaur, but still very enjoyable. 

And this was an Asda haul. Barring the first book in the pile; The Woolgrower's Companion. This was sent to me by the author, Joy Rhoades, in exchange for a review. So keep an eye out for that!

Have you bought any books recently?
