June Book Haul

monthly book haul

Hi everyone, here I am with my monthly book haul.


I can’t believe it’s the end of June already! It’ll be Christmas before we know it. Anyway, you know me this haul is ridiculous as ever so without further delay – here are the books I bought/received in the month of June.


These books I bought from Tesco in the 2 for £7 deal

Dear Thing by Julie Cohen

I picked this book up when I was looking for another book to complete my deal, and the blurb took my fancy. I’ve never read anything about a surrogacy before, and it sounded like a thrilling read.

The Ocean At The End Of The Lane by Neil Gaiman

I went into Tesco to find this book as I’d seen it in there before, and it turned out to be cheaper than Amazon. I’d seen this mentioned in a 2013 favourite books video on Youtube and made a mental note to read it. I’ve also heard great things about the author, and this book in particular won a National Book Award so I was interested to see what I’d think of it.

Melting Ms Frost by Kat Black

This was another book I bought so that I could complete the deal (I bought these books on different occasions). This book caught my eye, and when I read the blurb I realised it’s a ‘chick-lit’ book from a male perspective. I’ve never read anything like that before so I thought I’d give it a try.

The Unpredictable Consequences Of Love by Jill Mansell

I’ve heard so many good things about this author, so when I saw this book on the shelf as part of the deal, I had to pick it up.

You’re The One That I Want by Giovanna Fletcher

This is another book with a lot of hype. I know my friends absolutely loved these and were lucky enough to get advanced copies. I was thrilled to see it in the book deal and I picked it up. I love a good bargain.

Before We Met by Lucie Whitehouse

This was another book I’d seen in a video on Youtube, and they raved about it. I was going to buy it from WHSmith but I saw it in Tesco for the bargain price.


These books I bought from Amazon (apart from one)

The DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) by Kody Keplinger

This book was yet another book I found from watching booktuber videos, there were so many with this book on their shelves. I looked up the blurb and the goodreads rating, and it sounded like a nice contemporary YA read.

An Offer You Can’t Refuse by Jill Mansell

This book I originally heard of because of Carrie Hope Fletcher’s video about her top 10 favourite books, and I’d had it on my wishlist for a little while. This one was a belated anniversary present from Stewart, so thank you Stew! I kept looking for it in book shops and I could never find it. Stewart ordered me this for our anniversary and for some reason it took nearly 2 months to get here.

Here Lies Bridget by Paige Harrison

This is the exception to the Amazon purchases. I actually bought this one in The Works when I popped in with my friend, Laura. It was £1 and sounded like a decent read. Bargain.

No-One Ever Has Sex On A Tuesday by Tracy Bloom

I’d seen this quite a lot from other book blogs, and was wondering what it was all about. It was pretty cheap on Amazon, and I needed a filler book so that delivery was free, as you do.

The One by Kiera Cass

I pre-ordered this book a while ago, and it was released this month. I have the other two books in the trilogy so I can now marathon it over the summer.

Love Letters To The Dead by Ava Dellaira

This book I’m really looking forward to reading. I was introduced to this book from a booktuber, and I immediately added it to my wishlist. The booktuber said that it was comparable to The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, which I loved so I was eager to give this a read.


These books I bought from Amazon

Shopaholic Abroad by Sophie Kinsella

Shopaholic Ties The Knot by Sophie Kinsella

Shopaholic & Sister by Sophie Kinsella

Shopaholic & Baby by Sophie Kinsella

Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella

I bought these books to complete the Shopaholic series (before the new one is released). I’m really looking forward to marathoning the series because I have heard so many good things about it.


I bought this collection from Amazon.

The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

It’s Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han

We’ll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han

I saw these books in a video on Youtube. The booktuber was talking about their most anticipated summer reads, and I thought I’d try them too. I saw this 3 in 1 book on Amazon for a fraction of the price of all 3 separately, so I’ll be reading this 800+ paged beauty over the summer.


I received these books from the lovely people at Harper Collins. Big thank you to you all!

Stiltsville by Susanna Daniel

I won this book in a twitter giveaway. We had to let them know what our favourite seaside destination was, and I was one of the people drawn to win the book.

Where I Found You by Amanda Brooke

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

I was asked by the publisher if I’d like to review these books for them, and I jumped at the chance because they both sounded absolutely fantastic. I’m particularly looking forward to Dorothy Must Die as is has a fascinating concept.


I received the following books from the lovely people at Headline/Bookbridgr.

Beauty by Louise Mensch

The Wrong Knickers: A Decade Of Chaos by Bryony Gordon

Boy 21 by Matthew Quick

I want to say a massive thank you to them for sending me these books, they all look fantastic.

Thank you all for stopping by, if there’s any books you think I should add to my wishlist, please let me know!

  1. It looks like you got some amazing books this past month! I haven’t heard of many of them but am definitely going to look into Jill Mansell! I read the Shopaholic series years ago but have been wanting to reread them again- they would be great ones to have in your own collection!
