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!
