September was a good month for getting books for me! (18 new books, to be exact!) Here’s everything!
I went to a few charity shops while I was away in Cornwall and treated myself to quite a few books there! Turns out that the books in charity shops down south are much cheaper than the ones near me! Some of the paperbacks were only 50p!
- Lock and Key – Sarah Dessen
- Furiously Happy – Jenny Lawson
- Truly Madly Guilty – Liane Moriarty
- No and Me – Delphine du Vigan
- Revolutionary Road – Richard Yates
- The Shock of The Fall – Nathan Filer
I used to love Sarah Dessen’s books but I haven’t read one in ages, so I felt that it was time to read a new one. And we studied an extract from Revolutionary Road at college a few years back and I’ve been looking for a copy ever since. I hope it is as good as I’ve anticipated.
The Works 3 for £5 will be the death of me. Especially when I work in a shopping centre where it is just around the corner from me! This time I limited myself to just three books.
- One Christmas Kiss in Notting Hill – Mandy Baggot
- Summer at the Comfort Food Café – Debbie Johnson
- Differently Normal – Tammy Robinson
Differently Normal is advertised to fans of The Fault in Our Stars, so let’s see if it can live up to that! I read Christmas at the Comfort Food Cafe last year and I have wanted to read the original novel for a while, as as for the Christmas book, we all know I can’t resist a festive romance!
I’m subscribed to The Random Book Club where you get sent a random book each month. This month it seems like something I could enjoy.
- Abbotsford to Zion – Elspeth Wills
It’s not my usual type of book, but I will definitely be giving it a try to see what it is like! It has the prospect to be interesting!
I cannot resist a good Chris Riddell book. I went into my absolute favourite bookshop while I was in Padstow (The Padstow Bookseller) and they always have a healthy amount of Chris Riddell books in.
- Art Matters – Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell
- Poems To Live Your Life By – Chris Riddell
- Once Upon A Wild Wood – Chris Riddell
My little trip there did not disappoint. I got a signed copy of Art Matters and Once Upon A Wild Wood and I managed to pick up Poems To Live Your Life By a day early! Exactly why this is my favourite bookshop!
Matilda is turning thirty in October! And I was bought the three special editions brought out for this as a present.
- Matilda (30th Anniversary Editions) – Roald Dahl
They’re all so beautiful! And I’m so happy to have them. I may have had to order some Matilda canvases because one print in my room isn’t enough! I’ll be posting photos of them on Twitter as soon as I get them!
I won this in a giveaway that the publisher ran on Twitter.
- The Man Who Came Uptown – George Pelecands
The premise seems exciting and although it’s not something that I would usually read, I will definitely put my prejudices to one side and give it a go!
Since the movie trailer was released, I knew I needed to read this book.
- The House With The Clock in Its Walls – John Bellairs
The trailer made it look almost Lemony Snicket-esque so I wanted the book straight away. It looks like a series I could get into as I’m really enjoying MG fiction at the moment. We’ll see how good it is!
