APRIL HAUL!

This is my first haul in a blog format and I’m excited to try this out, so expect some changes in the way I do my monthly hauls around here until I get used to this. This month was the worst month for me money wise, I spent WAY too much on books and I have about 100000 regrets (and none of them are the books I picked) however bookdepositiry often takes weeks to get here so alot of what I’ve brought in the past two weeks, you’ll see in the next haul! This haul starts from about mid March till the 21st of April so here we go.

Shatter me – Tahereh Mafi
Well I finally picked this up after I saw so many raving reviews for it & now I’m currently reading it and loving it.

A Monster Calls – Patrick Ness
I wanted to try out Patrick Ness’ writing so I picked his shortest book and guys this is heart breaking.

Sputnik Sweetheart – Haruki Murakami
CarolineTheReader over on youtube is a big Haruki Murakami fan and she finally influenced me enough to pick up one of his books!

Harry Potter 1 – J.K Rowling
The one purchase I regret, not because I don’t love it, because I truly do. I regret this because I worked out how much it would cost to collect the whole series in hardback & the answer was WAY too exspensive, so I instead brought the adult paperback box set.

Throne of Glass – Sarah J. Mass
well I can say now you won’t see alot of stuff about SJM on my blog as I’m personally not a fan of her as  a person at all and find her books just average, but these we’re brought for me and I’m not going to waste a present so I’m currently reading Throne of Glass, and will continue to Crown of Midnight where I’ll stop and quite possibly never pick anything else by her up.

We Should all be feminists – Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche
This book holds my heart, it packs a massive punch in only a few pages and holds onto you so tight you cant leave it. I had heard alot of hype about this book and so eventually picked it up and guys it was SO worth buying.

And I Darken – Kiersten White
Can we just ignore this cover? I wish I had the American Cover but this was on sale in store so I couldn’t pass up the chance to get it for pretty darn cheap

Sarah
