I have a problem. My last book haul wasn’t that long ago, and it was quite a big haul so I didn’t think I would be getting any more books in such a short space of time. I was supposed to be on a book buying ban throughout June. I failed. Really badly. Somehow, in the last 5 weeks, I have acquired 19 books. I have no idea how. Help me.
I was gifted The White Princess by my Dad, which I was really excited about because it sounds so good. When I actually did some research into the books, I found out it was part of a series, like the fourth or fifth book or something. I managed to find some of the books on offer on amazon, so I got them along with two Harry Potter books. I’ve never owned a full, matching set of the Harry Potter series as I borrowed them from the library when I first read them. The Order of the Phoenix and Deathly Hallows were the only two books that I owned, so I had really old and beaten up copies. A few years ago I slowly started collecting the new copies because they’re so much nicer! When I saw that the Harry Potter books were on the offer as well, I couldn’t resist and now I finally own 7 matching books!
The last few books that I got were for University, there are a lot more books that I still need to get but I haven’t got the reading lists for those modules yet, so these are the ones I’ve got so far…
I bought way more books than I needed and more than I usually do throughout a normal month, but at least they’ll keep me busy! I’m putting myself on another book buying ban, so hopefully the only books I’ll receive in the next few months are pre-orders and books for university.
What are some books that you’ve gotten recently? Are any of these on your list that you want to read? Let me know which ones I should get to first!
