Hey everyone, welcome to another monthly book haul!
In my April Book Haul, link here, it’s safe to say I went a little insane. I vowed in that post not to go as mental, and I’d like to think I suceeded this month. In this post I’ll be showing you the books I’ve purchased this month, and also the books that I’ve received from publishers. I also won a twitter giveaway this month, which was really exciting as I’ve never won anything before.
Here we go, my considerably tamer May Book Haul…
I bought all of these books from Tesco in the 2 for £7 deal
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan
Yay, another addition to my collection of John Green book. I’ve head good things about this one in particular, and also I’ve never read anything from David Levithan so I’ll be interested to see what he can do.
The Accident by C. L. Taylor
This book was only £2, and so I picked it up to read the blurb. I thought it sounded really interesting, then I saw a lot of love on twitter for it.
Nine Uses For An Ex-Boyfriend by Sarra Manning
I was quite thrilled to see this book in the deal. Firstly, I was attracted to the cover but then the blurb sold me. I’ve also heard really good things about the author.
Beyond Grace’s Rainbow by Carmel Harrington
This book was recommended to me by Emma Louise, it’s one of her personal favourite books. It does sound really good, and also a tear-jerker, so I’m interested to read it.
The Best Thing I Never Had by Erin Lawless
Emma Louise also recommended this book to me, she said she’d enjoyed it and thought I would too. Quite happy that this and the previous mention were part of the excellent deal, can’t go wrong with a good book bargain.
These books I bought off Amazon.
Anna And The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
I ordered these books the same time I pre-ordered another book (which you’ll see later), and I chose this one because I’d seen it all over Booktube, and on other peoples blogs. The general concensus is that it’s really good, so I wanted to read it and form my own opinions.
Me And Earl And The Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews
This book went into my basket for a similar reason to the previous, I’d seen it on Booktube a lot! I’ve heard this is comparable to The Fault In Our Stars (which I loved), and I wanted to see if this really can compare.
These books I won in a twitter giveaway from the lovely Sophie, from ReviewedTheBook Check out her blog, and send her some love for me!
Splintered by A. G. Howard
I’ve heard this is a great book. It has connections to Alice In Wonderland, and I’m not sure if it’s a retelling or a continuation of it but I’m really excited to read it. It also has purple font, which makes this book a winner.
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
This book is another one that is all over Booktube, and it does sounds like an incredible series. Also, look at that cover, isn’t that pretty!
Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella
This beautiful book was also sent to me by the lovely Sophie from ReviewedTheBook. I’m so incredibly thankful to her sending me this, and in awe of how kind she is. Also, check out that amazing business card.
Thirteen Weddings by Paige Toon
This book was the book that I pre-ordered from Amazon, and I’m really looking forward to this. My friends Emma Louise, and Abbey absolutely adore this author and have already read and loved this book.
These books were sent to me from the lovely Poppy at Little Brown. Thank you so much Poppy, I cannot wait to read and review them.
Friendship by Emily Gould
I saw this book in the Little Brown Autumn catalogue, and I immediately fell in love with it. The blurb is fantastic, and I’m excited to see what this author can do.
Upstairs At The Party by Linda Grant
This book also caught my eye in the catalogue, and I remember Emma Louise telling me she has it on her TBR pile. So we’ve decided to do a joint review of this book. Watch this space!
The Twins by Saskia Sarginson
This book has actually been on my wishlist for a while. I’m so thankful to Poppy for sending me a copy to read. The blurb has sat with me for a while, and I’d been meaning to pick it up!
Without You by Saskia Sarginson
When I saw this book in the catalogue, I actually did a little squeal. Classy. But, it sounded amazing and I only realised later that it was by the same author as The Twins.
Thanks again, Poppy!
These books were sent to me by Rosie from Harper Collins. Thank you!!
The Way Back Home by Freya North
The Story of Us by Katy Regan
These books were complete surprises. They sound really good too, so I’m looking forward to reading them. Especially The Story Of Us that sounds exactly my cup of tea.
These book came from BookBridgr.Thank you!!
A Discovery Of Witches & Shadow Of Night by Deborah Harkness
Oooo these books sound like crackin’ reads! I’ve heard many good things about these books, and am really looking forward to trying them.
This book was sent to me by the lovely Clara at Little Brown. Thank you!!
Fall From India Place by Samantha Young
I’m really excited to announce that I’m participating in my very first blog tour! Really can’t wait to tell you all what I think of this book, so keep an eye out for the review. It’ll be posted on the 5th June 2014!
