London Book Haul!

I visited London this August, and made a pretty impressive book haul. My best friend, Natalie, is a terrible influence, and I ended up with quite a few new stories to enjoy.

Waterstones Piccadilly is the biggest bookshop not just in London; or the UK; but Europe. In total we must have spent about 10 hours in bookshops over just three days! Waterstones Piccadilly has five floors of tomes, with some amazing editions you can purchase. My mum and I once walked in to discover that John Le Carré had just visited and signed some novels. It’s reputation precedes it.

Brighton Book Haul!

I swear, I only went in for, like one book. Maybe two, at a push. Certainly not the *cough* five I came out with…!

I haven’t done a book haul on this blog for a while, but these books seriously excite me, and I want to share them with you!

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
