A Bit of a Brummy Book Haul

Hello friends! I can’t actually believe I’m bringing you my third book haul post of the month… but there we go.

I visited my bestie, Natalie, in Lichfield over the Easter holidays, and we went to Stratford-upon-Avon, and the five storey Waterstone’s in Birmingham! Therefore, whilst they are not all from Birmingham, I thought that I would share with you what I bought…

The Sonnets by William Shakespeare

I don’t know why this one is so blurry, it just wouldn’t focus! I think my camera had a hard time with the gold text! 

Oh. My. God. Okay, so this book was a wee bit pricey, about £12 I think, but it was SO worth it. This book is smaller than my hand, and each sonnet takes up one page. It’s exclusive to William Shakespeare’s birth place, and it’s a book that is already very important to me.

The White Book by Han Kang

This is a book that I’ve been eyeing up for ages (I mentioned it in my top ten books on my immediate TBR!), and I finally bought it in Waterstones. This is different to The Vegetarian in that it isn’t a novel but more prose-poetry, and I am so excited to read it. I want to sit down and devour it all in one, is the only trouble!

Eliza and her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

Whenever I see this book I get all excited and just want to pick it up… so, eventually, I did! This is a YA book and I was able to get it in the US hardback (which I’m guessing because no one in the UK publishes it?), and I am SO excited to read it. For some reason, I didn’t put it in the same blog post I put The White Book in, but it’s definitely one I want to get to as soon as possible.

I’m really happy with all of the books I bought, and I can’t wait to get to all of them! I would love to know if you’ve read any of these in the comments below!

Until the next time, x
