I am a huge book worm which I don’t think is always reflected on my blog as it is mainly beauty based however I do like to inject a bit of book related content into it every now and again. So, this post is going to be a little book haul, some are from my favourite Cat Charity Shop where books are 10p each (!!!!) and a couple are new releases from Tesco. Let’s get into…
Dear Life by Alice Munro
I’ve read a book by Alice Munro before which was a collection of short stories which is right up my street. Dear Life shares the same set up as a collection of stories with the focus being on the essence of life hence the title ‘Dear Life’. I’m really looking forward to starting this, it sounds right up my street and will be nice and easy to read when I’m in between calls.
Who Is Tom Ditto? by Danny Wallace
I know you’re not meant to judge a book by its cover but this looked like a really fun book from the cover. From the blurb it sounds like a young adult novel but the plot sounds really good and very intriguing. This is about Tom, whose girlfriend goes missing which seems to raise multiple questions including ‘Who Is Tom Ditto?’…
Bossypants by Tina Fey
I don’t know too much about Tina Fey but I was really intrigued when I picked this up. It sounds like a really funny read and Tina Fey sounds hilarious. Bossypants won’t be high up on my To Read list but is still something that I’ll enjoy reading.
The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty
I am a HUGE fan of horror books and movies but The Exorcist is one that seems to have slipped the net as I’ve never watched or read it. This was a charity shop find and is a 1970s edition that would have cost you 40p if bought new at the time! I’m not too clued up on the story of The Exorcist but what I’ve grasped is that it’s about the possession of a little girl. I’m looking forward to reading this, it sounds terrifying and I will 100% be watching the film if I enjoy the book!
After The Fire by Will Hill
What initially attracted me to this book was the condition of it, it is perfect and looks unread. I then read the blurb and the plot sounds SO GOOD. This is a young adult novel about Moonbeam who lives inside The Fence which is ruled by Father John and is kept away from outsiders, the novel follows Moonbeam’s journey to survival and revealing Father John’s lies…
Lion by Saroo Brierley
I recognised this book from the film which I haven’t seen yet, I do prefer to read the book before I watch the film so I’m quite glad about that actually. This is a non-fiction book that follows Saroo’s story and his journey to find his way back home after leaving aged five. This sounds like an incredible read and is one that I’ll be reaching for soon.
Before The Fall by Juliet West
This was a book that I kind of bought by mistake. I thought that I recognised the title from a film on Netflix but it turns out that is called ‘Before I Fall’ and the novel I bought is called ‘Before The Fall’. Nevertheless, I will still give this a read! This is set in 1916 during the Great War and follows one woman’s struggle throughout it. This isn’t my usual read but I’m always up for reading something different!
13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
Not going to lie I’m a sucker for easy to read young adult novels, especially when I’ve fallen into a bit of a reading slump. This is why I bought this book, it sounds like a nice easy read for the summer that will be really fun-these type of books are my guilty pleasure. ’13 Little Blue Envelopes’ is about Ginny whose Aunt leaves her 13 envelopes, what she does with them unfolds in the novel.
House Rules by Jodi Picoult
I am a huge fan of Jodi Picoult, her novels are my guilty pleasure, I just love curling up with one! I saw this in Tesco for just £2 and it intrigued me straight away. This is about Jacob who suffers with Asperger’s Syndrome and gets suspected of murder, his mum Emma has to fight to prove he’s innocent. I work frequently with people with Aspergers so that instantly drew me to this book, the plot sounds amazing and I can’t wait to sit with a brew and get stuck in!
Eve Of Man by Giovanna & Tom Fletcher
If you know anything about me you’ll know how much of a HUGE McFly fan I am. I’m obsessed. This is a dystopian novel written by both Tom and his wife Giovanna and is the first in a trilogy. This sounds amazing and is the next book that I’m going to read, I’m so excited to get stuck into this. Also how gorgeous is that cover!? This is about Eve who is the first girl to be born in 50 years… I picked this up in Tesco for £7.
Thank you so much for reading, I hope that you enjoyed it and enjoy my book related content (let me know if you do!). Also, if you love books as much as me you can follow me on Goodreads below to keep on top of what I’m reading!
